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…

Multitasking SOB and the "p" word

I'm pretty sure that's what I am. At least at this moment, which includes watching tv, uploading pics to MixBook to make a wedding guest book, checking out items on Amazon.com, and figuring out what to eat tomorrow...and also blogging.

What I really wanted to talk about today was complainers. Not just any type of complainers. There's some use  to gripping and releasing thoughts on particular activities. I get that, I partake in that quite often. But then there's the line that can be crossed. The person that does this is referred to as a vulgar name placed on female genitalia. It just happens to be one of those words I don't like using due to it's negative connotation, but at the same time produces such bitter, vocal tones that it can be appropriate. I digress, back to those people. I tire of them. They irritate me. If you see me go from a happy mood to a silent mood, chances are I'm fending off the yelling at this person.

Why do you complain? Is it because …

I'm gonna git you sucka...later though

Triathlon training. It's rough stuff. I'll get it soon. I'm coming from a sprinting, pole vaulting background and have been doing primal and Crossfit style workouts for the past year. That all equals a "go, go, go, push, push, push" mentality where everything is intense. All. The. Time. While, I'm used to figuring out what 60%, 80%, etc is, I am absolutely having a hard time applying it to something that lasts longer than a pole vault approach :( The important thing - I realize I have this issue. It is a work in progress and I'm dealing with right now. Man, it's tough though.

I'm listening to the Paleolithic Solution Podcast right now, so nutrition is also on my mind. I had a huge lunch yesterday and it destroyed my appetite for dinner. Note to self - stop that. I just baked some coconut flour cranberry and blueberry muffins :P

I'm waiting for other things to take place in my day and will be on my way to a bike ride. With intensity in mind, th…
