Holy CANNOLI. The Live OPEN was amaze-balls. I was really hoping that Camille would have won the Live OPEN. She is a BAMF on CTB! So graceful and beautiful. I was honestly mesmerized watching her. She inspires me to be able to do CTB. Her poor little hands though. I can only imagine her pain. I wait for the day that my hands rip. Isn’t that awful?! Even though she didn’t win the Live OPEN, she redid her workout and won with 404 reps. Only 394 reps better than me. Werk honey, werk.


So, the day came and went when I had to complete 14.2. My goal was 10. I got 10. HOLLAAAAA. I really tried to get CTB, but God didn’t want me to get them. My arms just stopped moving and wouldn’t bend to pull myself up. I was awesome at swinging though! If that was a movement, I’d be #1 on the leaderboard. Stupid me forgot to post my score on the site. I could kick myself.

This week I’m looking forward to 14.3. I’ll be doing it on Friday morning. Maybe it will be something I’ll actually be able to do. Give us your $20 they said, the OPEN is for everyone, they said.

Let me know how you guys did on 14.2, I’d love to hear your results!

I actually love this CrossFit tumblr. Everything on here is so accurate and hilarious! http://whatshouldcrossfitterscallme.tumblr.com/post/78958349307/when-someone-says-theyll-only-get-a-10-in-14-2


Bikini Shoulders

Well, we had a blizzard last week and I was unable to workout  Wednesday-Friday, which sucked. I worked out Saturday and it was a team WOD. It was really fun, but my shoulders were killing me and they are still sore. ‘Dem”Bikini Shoulders” as my coach calls them.

“It’s All About The Benjamin’s” WOD

100 reps of wall ball at 16 lb.
100 reps of kettlebell swing at 35 lb.
100 reps of push press at 65 lb.
100 reps of 20 in. box jump

Sunday was a day of rest for me. I caught up on some school work and cleaned my nasty house. Yesterday our workout didn’t look that bad, but after round 3, it was starting to get brutal on my shoulders. Poor things can’t get a break! I was really proud of my wall climbs, I didn’t think that I would be that great at them, but it turns out I was amazing (or at least I felt amazing). Round 5, wall climbs were really hard. I had done all of them practically with my stomach touching the wall, and those last 5 really were a struggle. I could feel my core slipping up and it wasn’t staying tight. I started to “sag” a little, but found the strength to finish them out, even if they were starting to get sloppy and ugly. There was a second workout, but my shoulders were not feeling up to par.

Yesterday’s WOD

5 rounds of:
400 m run
10 reps of ground to overhead at 45/35 lb
5 reps of wall climb

I’m looking forward to getting my shit together this week and getting my workout routine back together.

Feel free to comment, I enjoy reading them!


My Personal Goals

I’m really eager to get my CrossFit Certification (level 1). I think about it all the time. Mainly because I’m so excited to further my education with the sport.  After going to the War of the WODS, I realized that I want to be able to preform most (if not all) of the “movements” so I can one day demonstrate them to my wonderful CrossFit class, as a coach!

Here are some of my goals:

-I want to lose 10 more pounds (I just weighed myself and since July, I’ve lost 10 pounds. THANK THE LORD).
-I want to be able to do a strict pull-up.
-A muscle-up (I’m scared to do this).
-Handstand push-up/handstand walk (I’m excited about this one).
-I’d like to learn how to kip (this is hard for me to do since I’m left handed and my brain wants to do EVERYTHING backwards).

I want to try and get all of these down before the summer. I’m planning on getting certified and possibly shadowing a coach somewhere.
