Doing What I Love

Thanks for the support in the Nudity incident. Facebook didn't take it down a second time, so guess who has two thumbs and won that battle? Boom! Justice is served. 

If you follow my Facebook page or Land Warrior CrossFit's Facebook page (which you should be if you aren't!), I hope you heard my awesome news. 

I'm the new Head Coach and Operations Manager (and co-owner) at LWCF in Windsor Locks, CT! 

I'm absolutely ecstatic about this new position!

So much so, that my original plan to road trip across the country, from Oregon to Connecticut, started to seem like it would take way too long. Chomping at the bit to get this new chapter started, I instead took a leap of faith. I brokered a deal to have my car shipped across the country so that Elliott and I could fly, and I'm spending one last week relaxing in Pennsylvania with the BF before assuming my new role next week. 

I can't wait to meet the athletes, work with coaches, and grow our local CrossFit community. 
I would love if you would support us!

For motivation and more, check out our Facebook page, Instagram, and Twitter

If you're in the area, we're hosting a legit competition on November 8th, a two-person team competition. Cash prizes, and sponsors up the WAZOO. Kill Cliff, Box Junkie, Mad Fitter, you name it. 

What else is new? I changed my hair color. It seemed fitting, with the changing seasons.

From ├╝ber blonde to brunette.

I don't know why my lips look like zombie lips in this picture? 

I do miss the blonde though, it may be back sooner rather than later. ;) 

Happy Hump Day!

Reported for Nudity

We made it #facebookofficial. Surprised? :)

I made this my profile photo. 

Facebook removed it yesterday without telling me why. So, I put it back up. Someone reported it AGAIN. This time Facebook told me WHY. Apparently, it's contains NUDITY.

According to Facebook's Community Standards for nudity, that would mean:

"Facebook has a strict policy against the sharing of pornographic content and any explicitly sexual content where a minor is involved. We also impose limitations on the display of nudity. We aspire to respect people’s right to share content of personal importance, whether those are photos of a sculpture like Michelangelo's David or family photos of a child breastfeeding."

I have seen a lot profile photos of folks in bathing suits, on their wedding day kissing (in a strapless or backless wedding dress), breastfeeding their baby, etc. 

While I wait for Facebook to review it (it's still up since the 2nd time I put it back up, but if they deem it in violation of their standard, it will be removed), I thought I'd ask your opinion. 

I don't think my photo is inappropriate, I think I have a hater (I'm pretty used to haters).
What do you think?

Daaamn, It Feels Good

I'm on vacation. For realz now.

And daaaaaamn, it feels good. 

It's been pretty crazy since I got home from Kuwait. A good crazy, but busy! Just go, go, go. I spent the weekend in Orlando cheering on friends from Kuwait at the Disney Fit Challenge.

CrossFit Kings Point!

But right now I'm in PA. It's peaceful, quiet, and calm. My belly is full from a hearty breakfast made for me by a hunky, half clothed man, and my body is recovering with some tasty coconut water after a brutal (but awesome) workout in the garage gym this morning. 

I'm in the middle of the country. It's quiet. The birds are chirping. My favorite country music station is playing on Spotify.

I went from Oregon to Connecticut to Florida to Pennsylvania. This is the last leg before I head home again, but just for a week, then I'm back on the road. This time, for my final destination ... Nope, not telling where I'm resting my hat yet. ;)

I am a happy, happy girl. 

October Goals

String together 5 muscle ups 
my current best is 4, with 3 being a little more consistent
Get more consistent with bar muscle ups
Sometimes I can do them, sometimes I can't. SO ANNOYING.
Register for a competition 
Since I wet the competition whistle at Regionals this year, I haven't done anything since. I need to get better on the competition platform. 
Continue KILLING my ankle dorsiflexion and mobilizing my tight hip flexors and psoas.
all things that lead to the #gainztrain.
