a.k.a. restinG. I'm in my active rest phase right now. Not that I felt all that great about my practice performances previously, but I do agree that there isn't much to be gained in the finals days leading up to an event. So I'm banking on things I know will help - sleep, rest, nutrition. I'm cutting out dairy fo sho fo sho until after the race. It's got a lot to do with inflammation, but more than that - it causes gut irritation due to either an intolerance or an allergy. I've never gotten tested to see which one it is, but I figure it doesn't matter - I know what it does. I don't need a lab test to tell me how to handle it - just stop consuming it. If I were a lolCat I'd say - o hai there milk free lifestyle, o lookie, no belly pains and bad juju on teh otha end. Yeah, don't know where that came from other than the fact I'm using my restful time reading the lolcat Bible. Srsly.

After this triathlon I plan on taking some soothing time off for a pedicure, which I've never had, and also a massage. I won a VIPeel from a medspa, so I get that $290+ facial next week too :o I'll let you know how it goes. Tomorrow, I plan to start packing some of my things and checking out my bike to make sure she's pretty for the event.

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…
