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?

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…

Beauty of things

I will miss Michelle Obama. She was classy and beautiful despite what the Facebook trolls would have you believe. She was an accomplished woman with a legal career before she stepped foot in the White House. She could be formal and she could dance the Dougie. She sang Carpool Karaoke and she spoke eloquently during official functions. She cared about the health of the youth of this nation. I was touched by how grounded she was and inspired by her achievements as a person, wife, and mother. I expected to read nasty comments by Facebook trolls, but I wasn’t ready to personally experience hearing negativity about her. The blatant comparison of her to a primate was ridiculous. Absolutely, ridiculous. If there is any animal to compare her to, it is a unicorn. While that comparison was as in-your-face as it could be, others were not. Beauty/class has returned to the White House. I heard that a few times. You can veil your disrespect as much as you like, but it’s quite easy to pull that on…

Naying the naysayers

I’m not one to put much stock in what people say. Granted, there are the occasional hiccups, when someone says something utterly devastating to my ego. I listen and ponder it too long for my own confidence’s good. Then I move on. I wasn’t born with that power though, it was forged in the steely graves of teenage carefree happiness, hope, and dreams.


For the longest time, I didn’t grasp certain opinions were digs at me and my dreams. It started to sink in. I began to question myself and my goals. I stumbled. I fell. I might have even cried. Then I did what my mom inspired me to do – I picked myself up and gave the world a middle finger as I went on my way to achieve what my heart desired. Obviously, it took more time than writing words on a blog could convey, but it happened. I learned to disregard most of the opinions crossing my path. I learned to have goals releasable to the public, as well as hidden ones. I learned stubbornness could be used as a bridge to my journey, not a throw …
