boo to this morning

Today was supposed to be the first day on CF Football programming. I'm not going to lie, I was pretty pumped. We got out there, warmed up on a chilly morning, got done with the strength portion of the workout. As I'm getting ready to start the METCON, I find out it is time to leave. WTF? Really?

I'm disappointed. Nothing in the workout was confusing or should have taken a long time. When I see the workout left incomplete, I'm slightly worried that we're not being efficient with time. I could either wallow in remorse or make sure it doesn't happen again. I'm not big on regret, so guess what...time to get in gear. First thing - less talking. A few words exchanged every so often can add up to 10 minutes. We could have done the workout with that time. The other thing is a faster warm up. Warm ups are no joke. I'm not a spring chicken and it's pretty cold outside (and inside), so a good warm up is crucial to for maximizing output during a workout and injury prevention. I know I slow build for my first exercise no matter what was done beforehand. That means finding a faster warm-up that will still prime the pumps and give me enough time to warm up to the weight I'll use in my workout. Easily said, right?

Today has been a great "learning" situation. In the journal it goes and off to find better methods I go. I have to remember being crunched for time is not an excuse to half ass warm up and recovery time. It should be a motivator in making more efficient use of that time.

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 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…
