Emotions. Drained.

Allstate offers a service for breaking up with your car insurance. I almost feel like I need them to break up with my gym. I'm switching to a different gym today, but still have to finish my personal training clients with my old gym. So I'll be working out at one and working at another. Sounds somewhat odd when I think about it, but I'm looking forward to making the switch. It really hasn't been that hard to discuss with the gym owner, but they asked for me not to tell people that I'm leaving. At first this didn't seem like a problem. But part of me is excited and loves talking about it, so it sucks not being able to share my excitement. So in the meantime, I post it here knowing that people from my gym don't read this blog, but people that can share my excitement or understand what a deal this is to me do. Acceptable compromise for now, even though I'd like to share the news with other people.

On a training note - I've bought a bicycle trainer. Bicycle Village had a tent sale this weekend, but no real deals on trainers. With any discount I could get at that store, Amazon.com had a cheaper offer with shipping included. I went for a long run on Saturday and finally learned to slow down my pace. Unfortunately, I think it ended up hurting my knees and surrounding musculature more than running faster. My form probably wasn't the greatest at the slower pace.

I'm looking for some good tri shorts to buy. Any recommendations are welcomed. Product reviews coming soon for warm weather gear!

Dear Natural Hair, Let Me Explain...

I posted the snap of me with my hair brushed out some weeks ago. I wanted my friends to see the difference a brush makes. All too often, they think my curly hair remains curly. Some people don’t understand why I look at them enviously as they brush their hair in the middle of the day. Sure, if I worked at a place where my brushed out hair was perceived as professional, maybe I could do that. However, my mid-day hair brushing friends and I work at the same place and I get to sit by and watch them deal with their tangles johnny on the spot. I. I have to wait until I get home and can tame the beast of tangles by creating an entirely different beast. Such is my hair.
I’ve learned to love my hair.  After years of trying to hide the curls with relaxers, fancy products, and buns – I have learned. Yes, I’m jealous of people who can ride in a car with the windows down and do nothing more than brush out the wildness. I still get angry when I brake a brush or pull bristles. That does not get in…

Look Better, Feel Better Week 7

anything = sexy?

Here's a picture from the December 16, 2010 WOD from the Crossfit.com main site. It's a pretty picture, nice view. The comments to the picture were interesting. A majority of comments related to how pretty the lady was. Other comments wanted to know about the front view. There were also comments about how the picture was distasteful, unwanted, unnecessary. Some comments stated that lady in the picture wasn't what a "real" woman looked liked. Interesting.

I've heard claims that the Crossfit community, and others as well, is all about leveraging functionality and strength. Muscles are required to be strong. There is not much definition in the back of this girl. That was the root of some comments. She was stereotypically pretty and not Crossfit pretty. I understand. My first reaction to the people raving about the "Strong = Sexy" Life as Rx tee, what you really meant to say was "Anything without a top = sexy." Don't get the two confused b…
