    That’s really the mark of a good workout. .. it totally sucks while you are doing it, but afterward you are so happy you did it and you feel ah-mazing! That apple with almond butter looks delicious. Already excited for my banana and maple almond butter that is in my lunch today.

    150 was the RX?!!!! Holy cow. What a workout let alone extra credit! We did hang cleans yesterday in our WOD and after 95lbs x60 reps I was dead. BUT No way could I do any of those lifts at 150 right now! Your coach must hold very high expectations.

      haha – I know, right? He basically admitted that no one would be RX-ing today.

    By “rower” you mean “erg,” right? Or even rowing machine?

      At my box we refer to it as the “rower” so that’s what I call it. I’m sure it’s not the technical term, but that’s what I’ve heard it referred to as and that’s what’s stuck in my head. I’ll try to refer it properly as “erg” or “rowing machine” in the future.

    Hurray extra credit! I think I would have opted to go for it to, good for you! Iโ€™m sure your going to be feeling that tomorrow. For some reason it seems easier to have long hair when your working out since you can just toss it in a ponytail- but its still on your neck making you sweat more and sticking to you, bleh! (my hair is very long- just 3 inches above my bum)

    I love the hair pinned back like that! I have been trying to figure out new ways to wear my short hair to the gym since I also can’t really make a full poneytail. I definitely might have to try this look out!

    Cross fit seems to be getting super popular. I haven’t tried it yet but I have started the Paleo diet with my boyfriend. We agreed to do it for two months and see how we feel. Cross fit and paleo seem to go hand and hand. Maybe I’ll look into it!

    I love your haircut!! Must be so much nicer working out without a heavy ponytail.

    I once had a WOD where all I had to do was row 2,000 meters. It was a 4,000 meter partner row so every 500 meters one of us rested. It was BRUTAL. And doing what you did after a tough strength workout sounds really tough. Your short hair looks cute pinned back like that.

    Just say NO! Anything extra at CrossFit is probably offered with a sadists grin.

    Good job for figuring out a way to keep short hair out of your face! I’ve always thought my hair looked way better short and every once in a while I get an intense desire to chop it all off, telling myself I’ll figure out how to get it out of my face while running “later” (despite the fact that I’ve been through this process a number of times now-you’d think I would learn!). What always ends up happening is, I get it chopped off, love how it looks, but then curse it every day for not staying up and out of my face when I’m working out!

    nice job! Rowing is tough~ You should look into lululemon’s bang buster headband.. it’s the only thing that pulls my hair back and out of my face – and never moves! Highly recomend for CF!

    Your eggs always look so good! How do you cook them? I love basil and have never thought to put it on eggs. Make sense, must try.

    that sounds like a painful good time! i’m pretty excited, I saw a groupon for a crossfit gym near my house and have decided to try the 1 month trial in February, I am a very competitive person and have a feeling I will be hooked right away

    Love the new hair cut. I once chopped it all off to donate as well and loved the instant change/fresh look. I miss how easy short hair is to style. I may be going in for a chop now ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Have fun with new styles and (please please please, ha) share the results. I always found styling short hair to be hit or miss but would enjoy hearing what worked and what was more interesting.

    Your hair looks nice pinned like that. I have to be honest, that breakfast is tiny. I could not function during the day on a breakfast that small, especially after an intense workout. I don’t know how you do it!

    I was a lightweight rower all through high school and most of college–my 2,000 m split was a 1:50 –i TOTALLY understand why you hate the erg machine, but it really is the best workout i can think of to this day (haven’t touched an oar in almost 5 years). i know you have sub 2:25 in you! now i really want to try crossfit
