The speed on those hands though. I think she’s got this.

Don’t close yourself off from opportunities.

It’s so easy to immediately say, “I won’t like that,” when you haven’t even given it a shot.

I recently got an opportunity that I initially felt kind of “meh” about, and it turned out to be AMAZING.

Don’t miss out on stuff because it doesn’t make you 10,000% psyched from the get go. Give it a chance. Give yourself a chance.

17.5 was a giant bitch. Walking off the floor from that I had my first asthma attack ever. I didn’t even know what was happening until other people jumped in to help me and someone gave me their inhaler. But here are some people who killed it and didn’t suffer like I did haha #crossfit #17point5

So, I’m currently working on this piece but my T1 toner #copicmarkers dried up on me & I can’t finish it 😭 I need funds to order some supplies & finish this piece! If you want to see this finished & like this style, I am currently taking 4 slots for COMMISSIONS! You would pay $25 for a piece like this that I will ship to you (shipping is $3.50 extra) & I can continue my work! I most likely wouldn’t have them completely finished till end of March/beginning of April (at the latest!) If you’re interested in a commission, email me at: troikania(at)gmail.com - please share this post, as well!

CrossFit 3/17/2017 & 3/18/2017

WOD: 6 rounds (not for time): low handle/high handle sled push + 10 pull-ups

Sled weights were 50#, 70#, 90#, 110#, 130#, 150#. Spent most of the workout doing active recovery and mobility work to prepare for…

3/18/2017

WOD: 17.4

13 minute AMRAP:

  • 55 deadlifts (153#)
  • 55 wall-balls (14#)
  • 55 cal row
  • 55 handstand push-ups

I did 166 reps Rx (1 HSPU), which is 21 reps better than when I did this workout two months ago in January. Did the deadlifts touch-and-go in straight sets of 5, and then the wall balls in sets of 11 (except for a set of 6 and 5 at the end). The row was the worst part and was horrible and soul-crushing. My grip was totally trashed and I could barely hold on to the handle, but my goal was to finish the row, and I did! Everything else was pretty smooth, and as a bonus, I didn’t blow up my back. Pretty happy with how much better I did this time around, especially because this workout does NOT favor small people!

***turns ON out-of-office replies***

To ensure that I didn’t give into the gravitational pull of the couch, I baked another batch of chocolate chip toffee cookies and tried out some new stuff from the Ulta order that came today (1 of 2 new lipsticks and hair curler).

🎉YAY, long weekend!🎉

Off to get some food and watch the 17.4 Open workout announcement with my sister. 💪
