it’s a new year!
I hit the big TWO-FOUR last week so I'm officially a big girl. Here's an update on what I've been up to!
  • Food - I really don't like the word "diet" but the way I eat is mostly paleo. I'm avoiding dairy whenever possible because I'm lactose-intolerant and it gives me acne (and feeling like ...

a new experiment

a new experiment
I joined CrossFit Charlottesville in May 2010 and have loved it ever since. Almost religiously, I attended classes 3-5 times a week for the last year and a half. And while I've made some fantastic gains in strength and power (read about it

Days 220 – 222

Days 220 – 222
Can you believe it's (almost) the middle of August already? I think I was too busy melting in the heat to realize time was actually passing by.

Days 206, 208, 209
Do you ever have those days when you've got a thousand thoughts/ideas running through your head but can't fully grasp a single one? That's kind of how this week has been thus far. Quite frankly, I'm blaming it on coffee.

Day 160 – 6.9.2011
While attempting heavy thrusters during a workout this morning, I managed to break one of my 5lb plates. Good news is: I got to keep it as a souvenir! I had too much fun working on these :P

Day 158 – 6.7.2011

Day 158 – 6.7.2011
Something funny happened at the gym today - my fear that I lost some strength was confirmed. We were doing some shoulder presses and I failed at a weight that is under my PR, about 13lbs under (even a few pounds makes a huge difference for me). I expected some strength loss after our Guatemala trip ...

One Year of CrossFit

One Year of CrossFit
A year ago today I stepped into CrossFit Charlottesville for my very first On-Ramp class. I had just graduated from UVA and the classes were a graduation gift from Chris (he's sweet, huh?). I told him that I would commit to the month ...

Day 107

Day 107
I have been absolutely terrible at updating my blog - for that I'm really sorry. I've been working extra and planning the Guatemala trip, it leaves me exhausted at the end of the day. Sunday was gorgeous and the perfect weather for a Tug-of-War competition held by some fraternity at UVA. Our CrossF...
