I got new teef!

My permanent veneers are on, the first thing I wanted to do - EAT!! Vegetables of a varying colors (tomatoes, kale, zucchini) and buffalo!
I'll post pics of the new teeth in my grill when I look less drugged and tired. For now, you get to deal with more food pictures.

This week was a great workout week for the days I went. There were 4min rounders, weighted pull ups plus an AMRAP, and a heavy lift day. I got new max's on lifts I never tried to max out before, like thrusters. I did a few CFE running WODs too. The PWO (post workout) snackies are helping a ton. So far, it's been an egg protein shake (Optimum Nutrition), a banana (trying to cut it down), coconut milk (So Delicious), and either frozen berries, 100% cocoa powder, and/or shredded/unsweetened coconut. My recovery is better and I feel really energized for the next day. Don't do one? Maybe you don't need to. Thinking about it? Why not try it?!

Sadly, after so much activity, numbing agents, and pushing on my "mouthbone," I was ready for a rest day today. Listen to the body - check. Enjoy quality time with loved ones - check. Eat great food/feed the warrior 20lbs (a la Lance Armstrong/Dick's commercial) - check. Another reason I eat and workout the way I do - to do the above mentioned things...without guilt for taking a rest day.

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…
