My mom's beagle Milton died yesterday. He had a tumor on his spleen and had surgery, but it was too big and he was bleeding internally so they put him to sleep. My heart is broken. He wasn't even my dog but I loved him so much. He was extra... Read more

My best friend has a Biggest Loser contest at work that she's participating in, and I decided to sort of do it with her. For a few reasons. 1. It's two months long and gives me enough time to lose ALL my grief bacon. 2. It ends right befo... Read more

Of double unders. I have to tell you guys I had a rough day today. I was a total mess all day. I'm definitely stressed and upset and on top of it, I guess hormonal, and I was just a wreck all day. When I came back from CF (yes I went) tonig... Read more

About all the ridiculous, wildly inappropriate, uncomfortable, and just downright rude experiences I've had meeting and interviewing with scientists. Nut jobs, all of them. I had the worst interview of my life today, and that's including t... Read more

Good morning or afternoon everyone. Since my boyfriend is off today, I decided to go to the 10AM CrossFit instead of 4PM so I could spend the rest of the day with him. The workout was: Warm-up -500m row -Dog Sled Push down and back... Read more

Tuesday, February 18, 2014      5 comments

Had kind of an easier workout at CF tonight. I did some deadlifts for the weightlifting WOD and went very light. I concentrated suuuuuuuuper hard on squeezing my core and keeping my spine stable and I did not slip my disc! Yay! Avoiding deadlift... Read more

I needed to personalize my jump rope a little so that I can keep it at CrossFit instead of carrying it back and forth (so that I and everyone else knows that it's mine.) Most people just slap some duct tape on there and Sharpie their initials on... Read more

A few minutes before I was planning to get ready for CrossFit, I got a rejection from the latest job I interviewed for. I say "latest" because I think this is the 9th. Or 10th? I'm starting to lose track actually of all the times I've made a poi... Read more

Whew, CrossFit tonight was especially brutal because a photo student at our box wants to do a "before and after WOD" photo project, so the owner programmed a super tough WOD to give her the best after shots possible! ... Read more
Double unders- I guess we're all good at something.

So I went to CrossFit tonight and part of the warmup was double unders. My friend Ken, who started around the same time as me, was practicing and as usual could not get one. I said, "Hey buddy, you need me to show you how it's done?" and proceed... Read more

Hey all. I had a less than stellar weekend after a pretty good week last week. However, I did get creative this weekend. I went to the pottery painting place and made something cute, and Sunday I spent all day making tile art. It started as tile... Read more
