I have hobbies. Plenty hobbies. Perhaps more hobbies than are good for a single person to have. So, I thought I'd prioritize my hobbies but then I realized, I like them all. That is why I do them. I even am having a hard time with triathlon training, but I put swimming at a priority in my day. I don't want to suck at anything I do. That means putting in the time to try to do it right. So, now I'm going to have to go from a perspective of trying to prioritize what's important, to time management to get the most from all the things I like.

Here it goes - jiujitsu. Yes. Always work on jiujitsu so I don't suck at a fight later on this year. Triathlon. O the bane of my existence, how I still am oddly drawn towards the sprint form. I think I'll be doing maybe one Olympic tri a year and maybe a spattering of sprint tris. Besides, it's a good way for me to get cycling and running into one event - both things I like. Mtb. I miss my mountain bike (his name is Rocky because he's a Rocky Mountain Element). You will likely have to wait until this triathlon is over, which isn't bad because the weather will be prime by then and I'll be in shape vs being out of shape and biking in crap weather like usual.  Crossfit. I will make it to the games at some point. Not this year :( BUT, I can do most of the sessions and I'm getting muscle ups. I can't stop when I'm on a roll like that.

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 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…
