Holiday Hiatus

So like, sorry for the lack of updates. I didn't realize that I was actually going to be busy these past few weeks. How was your holiday? Did you eat clean and train hard?

Me, not so much eating clean, but I've been training pretty damn hard.
Well, not this past week.
I'm injured.
It happened.

If I've learned anything this past week, make sure when you're lifting, your mind is there with you. On December 28, 2012, I went in to WOD with a cluttered mind, thus not concentrating. I've been very uncomfortable with weight on my chest and we were doing front squats. I was about to PR that lift at 200 lbs, but I don't know what happened (yes, I do. I dropped my elbows), I don't know why I bailed (yes, I do. The weight scared me)... but I dropped it and it ended up crashing on my left thumb over extending it. So my wrist/thumb has been shot since then :(

So, I've been pretty disappointed that I haven't been blogging my results. It's okay. I was going hard for a few weeks and this has to be some kind of blessing in disguise to rest.


Anyways, Christmas was a very long day. Dan came over to the house a bit before noon. My family and I headed over to my uncle's house for Christmas lunch. Very low key and whatnot. My uncle prepped some awesome American food.We usually have Filipino food, but change is good :)

After hanging out for a few hours, Dan and I drove to Santa Barbara (1.5 hours away, ugh) to his aunt's house. That, was not so low key. Either way, we both got to spend time with our families, and I got a new remote control stunt helicopter out of it, lol.

Anyways, today is Day 1 of my own independent Paleo Challenge. Let's see how this goes...


Popular posts from this blog about that comfort zone

So, for the past year and a half, I have made it a point to do things to get out of my comfort zone. Even if it's as minuscule as going to farmers market. 
BTW, I went to a farmers market for the first time on Saturday! The BFF has been wanting to go and we finally had the chance to. So, you know how they sell organic and fresh produce? Yeah... We didn't get any of that. However, we did taste test some fruits and it was friggin bombskies! 

Nutella filled Hawaiian donut. What's up. 

BFF got her flowers and I got my macaroons from Munch Bakery. Turns out her dad and my dad golf together. 
Random question: how far would you drive to buy a couple pairs of pants?
To answer that for myself... 80 miles round trip... And the pants weren't even for me, lol. 
Shoutout to the BFF for sticking it out with me! 

After four, and I repeat, FOUR hours of searching for pants, the BFF and I met up with Big Bruddah at Gen KBBQ! Best decision of my life!
Another comfort-zone-breaker... I …

Skee TV: Fort Minor

So let me tell you. I've never won anything... EVER. During my Monday mini break, I was on instagram and saw that Skee TV was having a giveaway. Pretty much just comment on that picture of Mike Shinoda/Fort Minor and that's my entry. 
Skee TV added me on instagram, and commented on one of my pictures (Rawle D. Lewis) saying I was chosen! I emailed them and boom. I got my tickets. 
I followed Fort Minor since Mike Shinoda created it and man, it was AWESOME. And I can knock it off my bucket list - going to a rap/hip hop show. Also got a glimpse of Mr. Hahn!
I don't care what you say. I'm happy AF. 

Since I won, the Skee TV rep hooked it up with some merchandise. Mike Shinoda signed the snapback. I fangirled so hard.

After the show, we managed to head to Guisados and got some mafuggin tacos.
