Socks

I gots another pair of underarmour socks. For those of you that know me and my worksallthetimefilipina mother, you know I give shits about socks. They're pretty important. LOVE THEM! The verdict on UA socks - awesome. The heat gear socks (both liner and cushion) are awesome. Don't expect the cushion to provide a lot of soft feel, but just enough to help you ease into a lightweight trainer/race shoe. The liner is awesome when you want a lot of road feel. Both those socks retain their elasticity for the long haul. I've used and abused them in Qatar and still abuse them in Colorado to this day. I will get rid of these socks due to bleach having no effect on the dirty bottoms they get from me walking around in them during Crossfit before I get rid of them for wear and tear. The cushier kind I also have is not on the website but I find in plenty of stores. They are great for colder weather. They are thick all around, but don't provide the fit and tightness of the other heat gear socks. These are great for cold days, light running workouts, or general strength and conditioning workouts. There. That's me and my sock fetish. Also, I am ordering some knee high compression socks, just trying to figure out if I want Zoots or CEPs as both are slightly over $50 a  pair, not a decision to be thrown to the wind.

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…
