I am motivated. I am dedicated...like Ali in the Jungle



This is the song that goes to the Nike Human Chain commercial. I had just heard a wee bit of it from the commercial and then Googled the song. Really, it was pretty genius to pair this song with that commercial. The lyrics are very simple. Nothing awe inspiring as far as complexity, however the message is motivational if you've ever lived a bit of life (period dot end sentence single space).

I swam today. Tried to do some of the prescribed workout and found myself forgetting the distance I swam. Pretty neat for me because it meant I was going more than one length before taking a long break :P The life guard noticed I was getting better too. I had to start somewhere and now I'm moving forward, that's what matters for now. Off I go to humm this song more, I hope it gets stuck in my head since it seems to be a pretty nifty soundtrack option.

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…
