Well it’s only a couple of days so it was pretty quick and fits in a normal backpack - I love packing light! Leave for SFO tomorrow - should be a fun weekend. On a side note - Old Navy commercial with the oh white jeans they look so nice - yeah sure for like five minutes until you walk out of the house and sit in something or just walk somewhere and then they get all dirty and gross.
Woot! Went for a run - didn’t want to, but wanted to see my friend so I guess it all worked out. It was a short quick one probably about 2 miles. I did it though and it was pretty easy and we chatted the whole time.

In home mini-WOD
Just cause I haven’t been to my box - doesn’t mean I can’t pretend in my apartment. Since I’ve found the 2sq foot area in my place I can jump rope - I just did the following 4 rounds 100 singles 10 air squats 10 push ups 10 full sit ups I keep trying to do double unders but the space is a wee bit tiny and I keep hitting something (oh like the ceiling) so I’m...
haven't cheated yet...
so i haven’t cheated yet on my crossfit box - i haven’t gone to my crossfit box either in about two weeks now. i put my membership on hold and am going to try out the place near me after memorial day. i will also know before or after memorial day if the most wonderful amazingly brilliant work trip is going to happen and if that happens i may just save some bucks and hold off on the...
all of the sudden it is super crazy dark outside! like i thought it was nearing on 8pm, but nope it’s 1:30pm. the clouds and rain have come back to seattle it appears. i think they will be here all week - good thing i get to go to SF on saturday. i kinda don’t mine actually right now, which is odd - but really most of my sunny happy clothes are in the laundry and i already stained...
I really want to go for a run - but lets just say my tummy is not exactly on board with that - going to meet up with a friend in a bit and try to eat something more than just a banana today and perhaps go for a run later this afternoon/evening.
Went for a run - was running stupid fast (for me) decided to do the 3miles as intervals - averaged 9:18min pace - looked down at one point and it said 8:20min - almost fell over - really really dehydrated today - going to drink water and shower now…
This Trendy "Strong is the New Skinny" Thing (and... →
This is a good read and something i hope more girls and women figure out - strong is better than skinny.
None are so old as those who have outlived enthusiasm.– Thoreau i’ve been accused of having the enthusiasm of a child - i take that as a compliment.
I'm going to admit it
I’ve been lazy! I haven’t worked out consistently in about three-four months. The thing is I haven’t been sitting around doing nothing - I’ve had one trip to NYC, one trip to LA, one week of Scotland in Seattle, I’ve seen friends, I’ve made new ones - I’ve kept my food fairly consistent (ok not last week - again Scotland in Seattle…). I’ve...
i am about to cheat on my crossfit box…i love it there - it is just that there aren’t that many classes i can make. i can make the 5:30am class, which means i have to get up at like 4:40am (ugh) and i can at times make the 7pm class, but i have to leave work early take a bus home (in the opposite direction of the box) get my car and then drive back past where i just was to get there...
i just clicked purchase
fuck - i think i’ve lost my mind - who am i right now? i think i am actually who i used to be. a long time ago (flashback like 7 years) i was a girl who would just do things that i wanted to - not worrying about the judgement of others or anything like that. i would fly out to see friends on a whim, drive to the desert or the beach late at night because i felt like being there, go over a...
And the Scottish trap continues...
They kept inviting me down to SF while they were here and I think I am going to go. A few of them kept inviting me and I looked at flights and can get one for about $50 using my miles. My feeling is as to why this is not stalker-ish: I wouldn’t invite someone (multiple times) tell them to stay with me if I didn’t actually want them to come. So later today I think I’m going to...
Life is awesome
There are special times in your life that you are reminded about how wonderful life is. When you meet people that remind you how much fun you actually are. People that remind you to be yourself and let go and say yes and when you do amazing things happen. This last week I spent a lot of time with a lot of Scottish fellas. I have had what are some of the most fun and memorable moments of my life...
That is what time I woke up this morning. It was lovely!! I fell deep into the Scottish trap on Thursday night and ended up in their hotel lobby with a bottle of scotch, two guitars and 6 or 7 of the Scottish. I got home close to 4am and had to get up at 7am to go retrieve my car - came back home went back to sleep for two more hours and then to work for the day. I went to bed around 10pm last...
sooo...i'm a little slow at times
i was trying on shirts today and had the revelation that i am not fat anymore…i dare to say it, but i am slim. still have some belly chub to get rid of but the rest of me has really slimmed out and has really changed since i stared the crossfit. now i just need to start the running and get back to cycling and whew i’m gonna be awesome!
so…i decided today that i am not flying down to Wildflower tomorrow with the team. i am just simply not going. it is stressing me out beyond belief thinking about going - to the point of it being hard to breathe - i have had a massive weight on my shoulder and something happened this morning with work that if it doesn’t get sorted out - i just, i just don’t know what is going...
Woot! Got to take a nap before going to see Local Natives tonight. Found out the Scottish are going too - I feel this may be a very long night part two…
can i sleep now?
um so my self imposed ban on alcohol was lifted last evening. i am sooo tired!! i spent about 9 hours with close to 20 scottish guys. did you know that when you spend that much time with people that speak with a different accent and you are one of two americans…when you wake up the next morning and go get a coffee and hear people speaking not in a scottish accent it sounds really weird!!...
Life lesson #294735
Having a friend around is awesome! Also the 2006 Jeep Liberty has a faulty shift interlocking cable - that means when you get your car key stuck in your car do not have a massive panic attack thinking it is going to cost you thousands of dollars. Instead realize how wonderful the Internet is and that either you or your friends will start googling and figure it out. You then of course will...
If you live in Seattle come to the Paramount (it’s awesome you know it) if you live in another city and it is playing there go see it there. it is worth the ticket and your time. oh look here a clip from the youtubes I saw this last night and it is wonderful!! the touring cast is brilliant and everyone with the company is super nice and well scottish - who doesn’t like a play full...
Giving it a rest
I’m giving my chin a rest for the day - was gonna go in a run but it’s been a little owie today - in that I kept trying to rest my chin on my hand all day - ouch! Taking today off and will get back to crossfit tomorrow morning and Friday.
tell me about it
i mean it’s what i do for a living and i don’t know every band - there are so many i don’t know. when someone asks me if i know a band and i don’t pretend to know who they are - i ask them about the band then usually will listen to them and decide for myself. i mean i get it people think in order to be “cool” they have to know all the new “hip”...
Really People....really??!?!?!! →
this simultaneously makes me sad and laugh and doesn’t surprise me at all….which brings me right back around to being sad again.
Really want to go on a run
But I’ve had a headache pretty much all day and my chin/jaw hurts from this mornings incident - I think I am just gonna sit some ice on it and keep my fingers crossed that I don’t bruise too much.
Oh right the WOD
Today was practice muscle up transitions and the clean and jerk. My squat is still crappy so I did the hang clean at 65# The WOD 10minute AMRAP 2 clean and jerk @ 80% max - I went 65# 10 box jumps (@ 20”) I got 8 full rounds + 1 clean and a KO (yep we wrote knock out on the board) Wowzers my chin hurts right now and I really need to get to work. I did make a yummy breakfast -...
i'm gonna do it again
i’ve decided that i am going to run a marathon again - no way it could be as bad as the last time (read 7hours, sideways rain, IT band issues in both legs, freezing cold, miserable wind, did i mention sideways rain). i have no idea what marathon, but it will be somewhere warmer than Seattle - probably in CA. i need some structure in my training life right now so and the weather is getting...

Must get back on track
I’ve been off - I’m not training for anything, the weather has been crap, I’m ready for a change of scene and I need to push that all aside and get me eating and exercise back on track ASAP. Tomorrow morning I am getting up and going for a run not sure where or how far, but I need it. I also need a good swift kick in the ass to jump start my motivation, so if anyone wants to do...
Also loving this song right now →
Let me back in…
Ok I know a few of my friends are getting snow now but I’m still frozen and it’s raining and it’s gloomy - can I go back to LA now!?!??!
Best trip ever!
I had the best trip to LA - met an absolutely hilarious caveman and the amazing sweet and wonderful tinkerbell while in LA. I got to spend some time with one of my most favorite people in the entire world and met her super cute four year old son. saw a bunch of other friends - i just didn’t realize how much i missed them until i saw them again this week. i got a bit of sun burn on my...
Putting it out there
I’m a believer that if you put something out into the universe it can happen - my favorite quote is “that which we manifest is before us. We are the creators of our own destiny…” I believe that if you truly deeply want something enough, if you do all that you possibly can do to get it, if you don’t let doubt creep into your head it will happen. As I sit here in LA drinking my oh so yummy iced...
