Whole Life Fricken’ Challenge

Update: 39 days left…so if I hang in there it will be like winning Survivor but without the 1 million at the end. More like $20. Today the scale is up and my measurements are the same this is day 18. I feel like I should see more progress than this. Hopefully it’s internal and […]

Hypnophobia

Powerlifting Meet circa 2014 I might be afraid of sleep. Or afraid of losing control of my time I’m awake, or maybe I’m just a whacko and let my mind spin in circles. I didn’t sleep much last night and I committed to being at the gym by 6. So, of course my restless legs […]

Journey Towards Joy: Body

And by tomorrow…I meant in a week. Ooops! So this brings me to how I wanted to start by saying…my work schedule has been very unpredictable. This is ok, but hard to plan things in advance. Sure does keep me on my toes and make me creative about scheduling laundry and working out and such. […]

A little ditty, about me ‘n “Diane”

Last May I did a workout named “Diane”. It is 21-15-9 of Deadlifts at 155# and Handstand push ups. I had barely achieved handstand push ups at that time and the workout took me 19:53. Pretty long, but I finished it. The gym retested it recently but I got sick and couldn’t do it with […]

Truth Revealed: Eating Healthy is not easy.

Ok, I’m going to put it to you straight, eating healthy is hard. Cookies taste good and make my brain think happy thoughts. Broccoli dose not taste good and makes me pretty much sad. I wash it down with water. I wash cookies down with…more cookies! I know someone who would be on my team. […]

Wednesday Workout

I haven’t had a surplus of time to writes posts and with picture editing and stuff, it takes some time to make a post not look cheesy. A couple of weeks ago, I had one more day to workout before going on a trip and I was in between programs. (I have an awesome coach […]

Tuesday Tip

Try Something New I’ve recently decided to do something new. Swim. I actually do know how to swim and took swimming lessons as a child like many American children do. I have never swum laps. I now know why. (Swimsuit by Patagonia)* It’s hard. For the last month-ish I have spent about 30 minutes a […]

Weekend Warrior

Sunday was our “Wonderful Women of WCSC” WOD day! This month’s theme was “The ‘B’ Word” (Blind Buddy). Each person put a movement into a hat and we were matched up to do a 21-15-9 of those two movements. I put Power Snatch because I can always use the practice. I was partnered with Sheila […]
