I need to pee, but first, this blog


Here's what one of the drawers in my refrigerator looks like. Yip, vegetables. A shit ton of them. Not just a metric ton, but a s* ton of vegetables. I was more preoccupied with slicing and dicing last week than I wanted to be. Here's my attempt to combat that - slice and dice a few days worth at one time. I'll let you know how it works.

You might be wondering why I don't just get a food processor. I have one. A cheap mini Black & Decker one that doesn't do much chopping or dicing. It mushes very well and spits things out all over the kitchen too. We got what we paid for, sometimes it is better to wait for the savings to kick in rather then get something cheap in price and quality. For now, it's hand cutting everything until the funds allow for an uber delux model food processor...and also good tupper ware. It's amazing how quickly you go through that stuff when you prep so much food in advance.


Not to be outdone by the refrigerator drawer - my din-din. This is my attempt to eat more Paleo goodness. So, I had some mashed cauliflower, Napa cabbage sauteed in olive oil, grilled chicken, and some broccoli/carrot mix. Lots of vegetables...lots. And some meat for good measure and good fat. I've actually had so much avocado lately, that I need a break from it. My alternate means of fat are oils and meat/seafood fat from grass-fed and wild caught sources. I'm trying to remind myself that eating healthy now will pay dividends later...and no, so far there have been no up front savings realized by preparing meals for my fiance and myself. The organic or cleanly raised produce, grass fed moo meats, wild caught sea critters, and free range chicken n' chicken byproducts are pricey. I'm hoping that once I get the hang of all this, I can focus on more cost effective ways of dining in.

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…
