    OMGoodness…thank you however invented self tanners!!!
    When I competed in Fitness America the diet was usually 12 weeks long and the last few days was water load/ then water drop, but most importantly was the tanner. Freaky to look at in person but under stage lights it appeared perfect. The dark tan made you look even leaner, showing all muscular definition. So yes it is an illusion to some degree, but it is a great finishing touch. ATLEAST 5-10lb illusion.:) ProTan is my favorite brand.

    I had an episode of cranial/rectal inversion today and went to the gym at 11:30. Called Russell to ask about the new scheduling as I had not heard about it, and luckily he was pulling into the parking lot. So, I did the team WOD by myself.

    AMRAP in 20 minutes of:
    95#SDLHP 10 reps
    10 pushups

    as rx’d, 15 rds+6 SDLHP

      Damn. If I had stayed around for a few more minutes I could have done it with you.

      For some reason I missed the “…December 14th…” in bold print at the top of the new schedule sheet.

    A more lighthearted article than some of the more serious ones of late. Hollywood, bodybuilding, and figure competitions are all about image. Compared to steriods and diuretics, tanning is on the tame/safe side of image-enhancing techniques. Further, compared to hours in tanning beds, spray tan is again a better alternative. The results in person (not on stage) can be truly freakish. Unfortunately, there are some out there that think this sprayed-on look is street appropriate. There are some scary examples of this on one of my favorite websites: http://www.hotchickswithdouchebags.com (marginally WFS). On this site, these spray tanning addicted DBs (not dumbbell) (often from New Jersey or Las Vegas) are nicknamed Oompa Loompas.

      Had to check the HCwDB site. An awesome display of wanton douchebaggery.

      This site is too funny…I’ve happened across it before and was just wondering which douche canoe they paddled in on…..
      I say we have a HCwDB costume party next Halloween..How funny would that be?

    CFHSV is home to the best ortho surgeon in the south!

    Huge thanks to Howard that go me in for an exam in less than 24 hours : )

    Next on deck. MRI of left knee to rule in/out meniscus tear. If nothing nasty noted on MRI then it should be knee drain + steroids and back at it.

    Damn I hope this is just bursitis.

    Very grateful for the quick ortho service. Now just praying for good results.


  6. Yesterday’s squat WOD:

    90,105,115,125,135,140 (failure on the last squat, which was funny at Matrix, as I had about four people run over to me thinking I’d just killed myself. Most noise that’s happened there in a few weeks, at least!)

    On a more serious note, these true strength exercises truly show me how much more work is ahead of me, and how much CrossFit has already brought me in short time!

    Great work Krista on the flyers for the groundbreaking. We’re posting them all over the gym! They look awesome!

    …back to my Dr. Sears study-thon for the night. See y’all in the morning.

    10 completed rounds by the buzzer, but we finished the 11th in 20:30.

    After about a week and a half off and getting hit by the sinus/congestion/general funk bug this last week, today was tough. I am sure my all-out, no shame binge eating of sweet potato casserole, carrot cake and apple pie did not help either!
