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…

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…
