Okay I lied. I am bored so I am going to keep going. More girly stuff.
There are definite advantages to being a girl. Bartenders tend to give you drinks a lot quicker. People hold open doors for you. And, providing they do not know you do CrossFit, men carry things for you. I like being a girl. It is fun (sometimes) to put on makeup and go out. It is also a lot of work. There is a lot of maintenance that goes into being a girls. I feel, the majority of the time, that this is time better spent doing things that are more fun. Things like running through the would shooting your friends with a paintball gun. I think this is best demonstrated when it come to the beach. I do not tan well. I do not really burn or freckle a lot either. I kind of beige. I could spend time lying on the beach tanning, trying to become a lovely shade of brown.... but that just takes too long. I lie there for about 5 minutes thinking about all the fish in the water I could be seeing or that I could be trying to surf. I could be swimming or fishing or looking for shark's teeth or better yet diving with sharks. That is when I can not stand it anymore. I have to go do one of those things. I have been told lately by several people that I am more girly then I admit to. I am not saying I do not like girly things. So, to prove that I know that there is a girl in this messy, football and muscle car loving exterior I am going to list my girly traits.

I was listening to the radio on my way to work today when Katy Perry's song, Last Friday Night, came on. There is a line early on in the song that says: "is that a hickey or a bruise". Sadly, in my case it is a bruise. A clean bruise to be exact. At least that is the one on my chest. Then there is the bruise down my thigh. That is also from cleans; I lost my grip on the bar and it rolled down my leg. I have a big scratch shaped bruise on my inner thigh from a friend's dog (she was very happy to see me and I was wearing shorts). I have a lovely round bruise on the outside of my upper right thigh from a kettle bell. The final bruise (that I know of) is on my left arm. It is clearly from dips. I say clearly, but that is only true for other CrossFitters. I occasionally worry about the general public thinking bad things about my marriage. So much so that I have started to pay attention when I do things like loose control of a bar during cleans. For a long time people would say: "How did you get that bruise?" I would then figure out which one they were referring to and say: "I have no clue". For some reason people find my utter lack of interest in where my bruise originated from as disturbing. Now, I know I am clutsy. I do think that I bruise a little easier then most though. I wonder... Do I have a vitamin deficiency or something? Thoughts? Do you guys have any suggestions of bruise reduction?

I think I started the 2 a days at a bad time. I have not had a day off from working in 3 weeks. It is the final push for the Living Social coupon that I put out. But, next weekend is it and then I get my life back. The 2 a days just pushed me over the edge. I was exhausted. Even though I did Helen Rx for the first time ever, I was really slow. I am going to do it again this week, but I do not hold out a lot of hope that I am going to feel any better.

I have been doing 2 a days for the past 2 days. This means that I am waking up at 5:15 in order to be at the gym by 5:45. Why so early you ask.... I have to be at work by 7. The result of this experiment so far is that I am super tired. I am hoping it means that I will get ripped. I wish you could see results quickly, then I would be encouraged to keep doing this. Right now I just want to tell my boss that I am sick and go home and crawl back into bed. Stupid work getting in the way of me playing and sleeping. On a completely different note. I found this website and I think it is awesome. She makes a lot of beautiful deserts that are Paleoish. You should check it out.

I kind of got a handstand. It lasted for about 10 seconds before I started to fall over backwards. 10 seconds is not long enough to get an iPhone to focus and take the photo, so my legs are flopping over in it. Honestly, Kristen got a lot of photos of my butt. she decided to try to start the photo taking early so maybe she could get it but it just resulted in 20 photos of my ass.
