The Victoria’s Secret Fashion show is here (yes I’m watching right now too) and I’m pretty sure it’s just me who actually doesn’t want to be as skinny as these models. I think it’s because CrossFit has turned me into a muscle-head. Oops! Don’t get me wrong, all these women are still gorgeous, and I know they are VS models for a reason. Reasons probably include their catwalk (which I could never do), pretty faces (I feel bad for anyone who has to see me just as I roll out of bed), and giant gap of daylight in between their legs (yeah…with these CrossFit thighs THAT ain’t happening). Like I said, it’s probably just me that thinks this. Oh well! I’m gonna go do some deadlifts tomorrow instead of going on a diet like I know some of my friends will be doing after tonight’s show.
Good lord almighty, besides working on getting a muscle up I have found something else I need to work on at CrossFit: THRUSTERS. For our WOD today we did something that is extremely similar to Fran, except instead of 21-15-9 thrusters/pullups, we did 15-12-9-6-3 thrusters/burpee pullups (which is technically the same output as Fran when you think of it!). All I can say is I am gonna have some soooooooore legs tomorrow….and probably the next day too. I need to get more fluid at thrusters if I want to improve my Fran time anytime soon. Walking tomorrow should be an entertaining spectacle for anyone that sees me on the way across campus.
It’s easy to get so stressed out and focused on the negative that we forget to appreciate the gift of today. The wrong perspective is “there’s no hope, nothing is working out”, but the right perspective is “when God closes one door, He opens up another one”. If we complain about where we are, we will never get to where we want to be. Be thankful for the life you have, because I guarantee you, there is someone else who would love to be in your shoes.
“You, my friend, look so damn leathery I’m honestly tempted to wrap ya around a baseball, synch ya up with a belt, and stick ya under my mattress so that you’re good and broken in for the big game on Sunday. Buut, since I’m here to heal not judge, I’m gonna go ahead and write you a couple of prescriptions. You’ll find that this first one is for an extra large mallet to help ya pound some sense into yourself. The second one is for a big floppy hat that you’re now to wear every single time ya leave the house. Have a great day, ya look like a purse!”—Coxisms—The Quotes of Dr. Perry Cox (Scrubs)
I'm not one to usually go on rants but I'll let it out, just this once.
Every day as I check Twitter and Facebook, I realize how much it baffles me that people still do not understand the difference between certain words in the English language. Words like this…
If said people have successfully graduated from elementary school, we can all safely assume that they have at least been taught the differences between these words. Now, whether or not this elementary information was retained is clear 99% of the time, being that their sentences are marred by ridiculous grammar errors that would send English teachers everywhere into a wild rage. I too, am sent into a wild rage, and I’m a college student. Just sayin’.
