...and I'm back!

I apologize for the complete lack of updates. I've pretty much plateaued and was in no mood for anything. But let me update you!

I ended up getting free tickets to the CrossFit Games 2013 for the Friday events. Let me tell you, seeing the top elite athletes is so humbling and inspiring. I had the gold access pass so I got to be at the heart of the events.

On August 3rd, I competed in my first Powerlifting Meet. Check out the footage here! I know exactly what I need to work on, and I'm so blessed to have my brother, closest friends, and my Ero family there to support me.

In case you didn't watch the video, I got 3rd place. Ryan, an Ero bro, was SO close and was in 4th place. And that's out of 20+ men! There were maybe 7-8 women who participated. Considering it was my first meet, apparently I have lots to be proud of! 

Just last week, I headed out to Baltimore, Maryland to visit someone I've never met, but been pretty close to for the past 10+ years. We spent time planning her party, bonding, eating (a lot for me, lol), and she took me to the Harbor. As much as I want to say I LOVED the trip, it was rather bittersweet for me. Things happen that's out of our control that really put me in a bad mood. I mosdef enjoyed Angel's company! It would be nice to meet again, except in a different area... Maybe LA? LOL.

I went back to work yesterday, and it was a breeze. No matter where I go, it's always nice to be home. I ended up picking up my packet for a 5k tonight, and with much talk with my Ero Kuya (Sig), I decided to WOD. I'm glad I did. Although I wasn't at my best and strongest, I'm glad I got back in there. But let me tell you... I am NEVER taking a week off again, and if I do take a week off from CrossFit, vacation or not... MUST. STAY. ACTIVE.


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.
