back in the saddle again...

Last Thursday, I saw Rex Navarette perform at the
 San Jose Improv. Here we are: Dorothy S., Rex, Shirl R.,
me, and my sis. Such a fun night!
Hello all! Apologies for being MIA. Truth is, I was off beat with my New Year goals in January. Lots of stuff has been keeping my crazy life insanely busy. Unfortunately, my workout life has taken a toll. Luckily, I'm back on track and in full force!

Well, maybe not full force, but definitely looking for some consistency.

In truth, I avoided the gym in January because I can't stand all the band wagon goers. The idea was to wait til February to get my New Year goals in line. That way, all the band wagoners would be gone and I'd be in a better state to start off the New Year. Besides, since I'm kinda part Chinese (by virtue of being Filipino), I guess it makes sense that my new year starts on a different calendar (smirk). For now, I'm glad to be back in the game. Cheers to good health this year. Woot!

Today's Small Victories
I followed my rules quite well. (Note: Will elaborate on what healthmonth is in a later post. For now, just know that it totally ROCKS!) Yea first day! Also, I shopped for some inexpensive grass fed beef and marinated a batch for some good eats for me and the SO. Since I was on a roll, I whipped up a batch of home-made primal chili while snacking on fresh cucumber salad. Ahem. Did I mention that I did some reading and class prep to boot?! Yea!

In the morning, I did my first yoga session of 2011. YES! Awesome!

Some random craziness with Freddy that included jump ropes, stretching and other stuff I can't recall.

CrossFit One World WOD
Complete the following 5 times:
1 minute of 5-10-15 yd long shuttles (suicides)
Rest 30 seconds
1 minute of kettlebell swings (35# Russian style)
Rest 30 seconds
Score total kettlebell swings.

Joanne's Final Score - 167 kettlebell swings

Notes (to myself) about this workout: I love anything that involves a kb swing! Though I suck, I also love getting to work on the jump ropes. Finally, yoga rocks!

Hello Miss Evil - I miss you! When can I see you again?!

Shirl - I'll keep you posted on health month. Right now, I'm still navigating my way through the site. For example, I JUST found out that I can give others a life point by giving them two pieces of fruit. OMG. Who knew?! With that, I don't think I'll be ready to be a guest blogger for a few months. Glad to be on the team!
