CrossFit Total and Beautiful Creatures

Monday, February 4, 2013
CrossFit Total Time!
3 attempts at 1 RM:
Back Squat
Shoulder Press
I PRed on each lift. The numbers below are my before/after PRs
235/240 lb Back Squat
85/90 lb Shoulder Press
285/290 lb Deadlift
I PRed on each lift by 5 lbs. It's not much but considering I'm still sore on my sprained wrist/thumb, I did well!
CrossFit Total: 620 lbs
I talked to my brother about it, and according to some chart, my weight bracket... my total should be around 520 lbs. So I'm in between the Advanced/Elite level for this. True or not, I was so damn happy about my PRs.
Here's an unflattering picture, but I got that deadlift!
I have been going to crossfit on a daily basis but I'm not blogging about each WOD anymore. Maybe it's because I'm still injured, but I'm trying to balance my life out more :)
Last night, Nancy and I went to the Beautiful Creatures Screening in Hollywood. Let me tell you... this was an adventure. We were runing late and left our area at about 5 pm. We had to be there by 6 pm to claim our tickets. (Nancy won these on KIIS FM, thank you!)
So, we didn't get parked and settled until 7 pm. We walked our happy asses to the Chinese Theatre and the security told us will call pick ups were nearby. So we went. When we went, the lady said radio winners have to go to Coffee Bean. We couldn't go the way we came so we had to go down to Highland and Hollywood and walk ALL the way back down to Hollywood and Orange. No one was there at Coffee Bean. We crossed the street AGAIN and met with the radio people. They said the cutoff time was at 6:30 pm.
The lady I spoke to asked what time we got there... I looked at Nancy and her face was about to give out the truth so I told her, "We got here at 6 but they told us to go down to the other Will Call Office and they had us go to Coffee Bean." She was like, "Oh, I'm sorry about that, you need to talk to this guy [in blue]" so I did, told him our... "situation" and he gave us two passes and we were at the front of the line! WHEW. Thank goodness we got so lucky!
The movie was pretty good, but I made the mistake of power reading the past few days to finish the book. I finished yesterday at 3:58 pm just in time before work ended. It was all fresh in my mind.
Advice: Do not read the book if you want to thoroughly enjoy the movie. The movie was good for what it was, book is much better hands down! Of course. The actor who played Ethan NAILED it and I'm glad the movie was pretty good (again, for what it was).
After the movie, we were hungry so we headed back to Torrance to get some In & Out. I ran into my good friend, Carlos! We've been friends since we were 4 or 5. That's at least 20 years!


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.
