5 gallons of freakin' mead sit in front me...

Yesterday was our Crossfit assessment day. I hired a Paleo friendly RD recommended by Robb Wolf to help with my meal planning, she's Amy Kubal. I wasn't meeting my goals and doing it the way I had wasn't working (thus explaining the failed goals). I looked at this meal plan and scoffed somewhat. How the heck do I power performance off this crap? I ate my words yesterday.

If you asked me yesterday, I'd predict feeling like the dog in the picture on Sunday. Dead. Not true. I'm the cat. I killed it yo'!Not really, but I did good and I recoved like a champ. Within the short breaks, my system was up and running. Today, I have soreness in my belly from first ever real GHD's and that's it. It isn't that I took it easy, but I think this Amy chick knows what she's doing. In the few weeks I've been on this meal plan, I'm getting better. I've always work to be better, but now I have the fuel to keep me on that path. THANKS AMY!

What was my biggest disappointment yesterday? Wallball shots at a 12ft target. Dude, I'm short. That's an excuse. There's no bonus points for completing life when you're shorter than the average girl. Crossfit is no different. I need to work on those. What did I like about yesterday? I got 10 really good HSPU in a row before coming off the wall. Not anything to "run tell that." BUT, I'm happy with the quality of my HSPU and I'm not going to rob myself of the joy that I did enough to put a smile on my face. Yay!

Favorite lines running through my head right now - keep on keepin' on AND "ain't nobody gonna break my stride, ain't nobody gonna hold me down, O NO, I got to keep on movin..."

Also, I we racked our homebrew today. There are, seriously, FIVE GALLONS of mead in my kitchen. Yikes!

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…
