So my baby brother has his gallery opening today. He is a photographer and if I do say so myself he is pretty damn good. And he’s a cutie to boot! Anywhoser I was going to try to finish my homework on the quick side today so I could drive home to surprise him, but that was a no go. I would’ve been able to do it if I had been able to get homework done yesterday, but I was so hungover!
Ok, so I like never go out anymore. And some people say that but I’m serious. I don’t go out on Friday nights, I go to CrossFit. I don’t go out on Saturdays, I go to bed. So I drank and I drank too much and I was hungover all day. I asked my friend how we managed to do such nonsense in undergrad all the time and she said because we were young then. My God, getting older sucks a bit.
Needless to say, it validated why I don’t drink much. I’m clearly NOT missing out on anything. So now that I’ve experienced being drunk again, I can check it off my list and not do it again for a very long time. So I found my notebook that I had started of all the inspirational photos for working out and such. And it reminded me about talking with Joscelyn and about how she has goals for what she wants by next year. And I was thinking, I have goals for what I want by the end of this year. I made a list and put it next to my bed to remind me every day.
My goals are; To up my daily water intake, to get better at yoga (my balance sucks!), to hit a 93 lb. snatch, to get a strict pull up, to ROCK my first CrossFit competition, to be more confident, to study my ass off, to get in the top 10% of my class this semester, to eat better (Paleo wise) and to be a BADASS every day.
I really want to improve my Olympic lifts especially the snatch because between that and the clean and jerk, I’m way better at the clean and jerk. I just hit a 83 lb. snatch last week which is the most I’ve ever done. And I hit my first ever 100+ clean. It’s because of this girl Allie from my CrossFit gym who pushes me. I’ll be adding weight and am like “I don’t think I can lift that weight” and she will be like “Shut up, and do it”.
<– That’s me hitting a 103 lb. clean and split jerk 3 or 4 times this past week. The week before it was my 1RM for the week. Clearly, I can do more, but that’s besides the point. I was so pumped to finally break 100+ it was ridiculous. I can’t wait until the strength cycle is over and I can see just how much stronger I’ve gotten.
My strict press has already gotten stronger and the strength cycle is not done yet! I literally can’t even say how much I love CrossFit Journey. My life basically revolves around school, homework, and doing CrossFit. And I’m absolutely ok with that. Contrary to what some believe I don’t have to go out every weekend to have a good time!
I’ve got to really stay on top of my homework this week because Taylor and Kathleen’s wedding is this weekend. I can’t wait it’s going to be a great time. I’ll probably cry or something lame.
So that’s it for now, until later TTFN.
