Making a List. Checking it Twice?

No double checking this list. It is only a brain hurl of things I think I want to do sooner or later (think near to mid-term future). I am on a short hiatus from "tings" right now, but want to hit the ground running when I'm ready. As much as I love the thrill of last minute ventures, well planned ideas always have a place in my heart and lifestyle. Plus, I enjoy the training aspect of events. So here's a list and maybe a reason why I think I should do things:

1. Run another 5k - free shirts, little training, charity

2. Xterra tri (sport/sprint length) - last one was horrible tough, but fun

3. Road tri (sprint or oly distance)  surprisingly fun

4. Be a PR girl! - Denver area fitness, figure, and bikini team, they're fun and workout a lot (like me)

5. NPC figure contest - see #4, it only makes sense to compete when you're on a team

6. Crossfit Games - Grueling and fun, good energy, plus I get to see the people I facebook stalk

7. Earn more money - I seriously need to put that PhD to work

8. Travel more - culture is great, getting in some of my own is better, sharing it with Andrew=awesome

9. Motorcycle class - I have two of these things but did zero riding last season, I need to get reacquainted!

10. MSC race - Mountain. State. Cup. It's for mountain bikers, equally as enthusiastic as roadies but with less pretentious beings and far less "snoot" than I've got at road events. Apparently, I smell of "mountain."

11. Get Vitamin D - everyone should photosynthesize, it's what skin was meant to do

12. Pole vault - because I love it

13. MMA - I've tinkered with the idea of an mma fight for years and I need to stop that and actually "do that"

14. Balance Crossfit with my other hobbies - I'm Crossfit-centrique right now. There's a reason for that. I'm missing out on my other hobbies though and when the gaming is over, I want to return to a balance between hobbies.


What are your plans for the future? Maybe not next year, maybe it is next month. But if you plan, what are your plans?

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…
