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”

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 […]
