DECEMBER!

Well if you can’t tell by my lack of posts, its been a very busy month for me.  Time has just flown by! Since the competition I’ve basically just been bugging my coach to tell me what to do to work on my skills.  We ended up having a lovely hour pow wow about what I need to do if I want to get serious about getting better at the basics.  So currently I am on a push up and pull up regimen to do every day after the wod.  So I’ve started that….

I’m also trying to remember to be better at not killing myself every single day.  And I even took 3 whole days off from anything! On Thanksgiving I ran my annual 5k Turkey Trot race with my mom and my brother.  Now, I’m a klutz, I’ve fallen in this race basically every year.  Last year was the 1st year in about 5 that I haven’t fallen.  So my goals this year were to; not fall and to have someone give me a beer.  See the course goes past this bar 2x- once on the way out and once on the way back in.  I’m happy to say… I accomplished both of my goals- so it was basically a Thanksgiving Day win.  10556398_10204311622003597_14159057478327252_n

So after Thursday, I didn’t do any working out for 3 whole days because I figured after many months of 2 a days and not taking more than 1 day off a week, my body deserved it.  Although I don’t know if my body really appreciated it because we did Fran this morning.  This was the first time I’ve ever done Fran… I’ve done variations of Fran with thrusters and burpees or Double unders, but never actual Fran.
So Fran consists of thrusters and pull-ups at 21-15-9 and my time was 14:09, not exactly the 2 minutes that Camille does, but I’m just happy I finished it and didn’t stop because I really wanted to.  My goal is going to be that the next time we do it (in spring/summer) I take like a few minutes off and I do it fully Rx.  I can do the thrusters Rx, but the pull-ups not so much…

So anyways, my body felt really sluggish during it and I don’t know if it is because my body has so much rest or if (realistically) it’s because of all the crap I ate over Thanksgiving.   Now, I’m paleo so I don’t eat milk products, grains, corn, etc.  And all I ate over Thanksgiving (Thursday-Saturday) was cheese, bread (cornbread), soda, wine, chips, dip, stuffing, clam chowder, etc.  I went absolutely nuts.  And it was fun while I was doing it but my body quickly reminded me how much it did not appreciate such crap.  I kept getting headaches and stomachaches from all the food I don’t normally eat.  So while it was fun, I’m happy to be back on my normal eating schedule of meat, veggies, nuts, and fruit.

This week is my last week of classes and then I have 2 weeks of finals.  And then I will be done with my first semester of law school! Seems absolutely crazy, but there it is!   So that’s it for now, I’ll probably be MIA for the next month again with studying and all.

So until later, TTFN. 

Busy Busy Bee/ 2 decades

Well I have been a busy busy bee.  Do you like my alliteration?  Anywho, I went up to school officially on Saturday and moved myself in.  It took until the afternoon on Sunday to completely move into my new room.  Don’t worry I have lots of pictures, which are below.

This is the view from my window, if there wasn’t snow I’d be very tempted to try to climb out onto the roof…

This is my bed all made and junk, with lots of random crap on top of it.  It’ s probably not all that interesting.

My lovely closet that is ALL for me! Along with the WHOLE room. (Which is very exciting for me) I didn’t exactly enjoy my living situation last semester. It was like I had 2 roommates, my roommate and her bf….

But I digress…

Anywho, this is my place of studying and organizationalness. 

 Not very organized as you can see.

This is my workout wall and such jazz. This was taken before I put up all my race bibs and such so they are now  up next to my wall.

Anywho, I finally finished the beer can pillow and gave it to my guy friends.  And they loved it! I’m determined to get them to drink enough beer to think that it’s a giant beer can that they can drink.  Anywho, here are pics of it all done.  I even made a tab for the top!

As you can see I decided to make it a bud light can of beer, because that is one they drink the most.  And now here is the top of it.

 I made a fake tab to “open” the can. 

Also, since it was my birthday today (the big 20).  I decided to treat myself with my birthday and bought myself some fabric from the local craft store to make myself letters (for my sorority) with. 
Also, I wouldn’t spend much money on it and honestly all the shirts and stuff that I have now with letters on it have either been hand me downs or gifts.  But, I am placing orders for a sweatshirt, a t-shirt, and a shirt called a jock with my nickname on it.  I’m very excited, mostly because my mom can’t say anything about me spending the money because it was my birthday money and I never splurge this much (even though she thinks it’s a waste of money).  But overall it was a pretty good day.  Oh here are the different fabrics I got:

As you can see, it’s a wide range.  It has a decent amount of pinks because, well, it’s my favorite color.   And… oh! I got a free cannoli in one of my dining halls today because they heard it was my birthday/I told them :P.  But it definitely made my day.  So I belive that that is it for now so until later, TTFN.
