Gettin’ Better

19 Dec

Tomorrow, Matt ad I are flying to Pittsburgh to stay with my family for the weekend! I’m pretty excited, its been over 4 months since I last saw my family and then I was only home for like 48 hours! I’m going back to RAW for a drop in then some tweeters have been suggesting to me to check out other boxes too….but I really LOVE RAW…so we’ll see!

My pull-ups are getting better everyday! This morning’s WOD was:
4 rounds
10 ground to overhead (115/75)
then 3 rounds of Cindy (5 pullups, 10 puch-ups, 15 air squats)

I used the smallest band we have (purple!) and was able to kip! It’s a great feeling, I know I’m still scaling it, but I at least don’t end up in tears when my arms give out and I’m the last one on the bar! (like last week….)
Seriously…in one week I went from crying with a thicker band to flying with a smaller band thanks to the wonderful invention…kipping!

CollageOy the pain…this is what I do in my office after days of pull-ups and upper body work!

20121218_173407Matt and I got matching wrist wraps! (Like the company name Dan??)

They’re easy to put on and take off and were only $12! They really make my wrists feel secure and I feel I’ll be able to do overhead work with out that nagging wrist pain.

Has anyone every tried oil cleansing for their face? I wash my face with coconut oil every night. Sounds awful, right? Smells great and makes my face soft 🙂 So far, no breakouts and any acne scarring I had is fading…so far so good! Been doing it for about 2 weeks now!

Lastly, this was super interesting. It’s true, we do a lot of movements that are probably not good for us…and we do them a lot. Biggest fear would be the box jump one…ick. Of course, my only injury to date with a box jump has been a (broken?) jammed finger joint, that still hasn’t healed! (and actually was made worse thanks to volleyball Monday night!) Oh well, going to doctors takes time and then they restrict you.

    Awesome job on the pull-ups!!!

    I heard about coconut oil for your face but I’m scared lol. Is it just straight up coconut oil like what you cook with?

      haha yep! Every night, I walk into the kitchen, scoop a little chunk of oil, take it into the bathroom and rub it on my face! then with a hot wash cloth wipe it off! I was nervous at first, but it is def a good makeup remover too!

        I’m totally trying this! I had bought a moisturizer with coconut oil in it; but this sounds like it is great for cleansing/moisturizing at once!

    Awesome wrist wraps! I went with the Rogue ones because I’m a brand whore…

    You probably already know this but Juli via PaleOMG has talked about oil cleansing several times

    Got your card yesterday! Thanks so much – you’re way more thoughtful than me 😦
