Fluffy Friday: Glamour Girevik Goes Grok
What do kettlebell certifications, microwaves, and raccoons all have in common?
They make me nervous. Tomorrow is my second official taekwondo tournament and I’m a bit nervous. Okay so I’m really nervous. Considering MMA Mama beat me in the last tournament giving me a nasty bruise adding injury to insult ;-) , I think my nervousness is justified. Wondering IF she is going be there is more worrisome than the tournament itself. Next week I’ll do a recap…if I live. Just kidding the sparring is totally controlled and fully padded. It’s nothing like a “real fight”. It’s actually really fun especially for a girl who grew up with pictures of Rocky taped in her junior high locker while all the other girls had New Kids on the Block pictures. Weirdos.
As of late I’ve felt like I’ve come across a bit more beastly than I actually am. Sure I may love picking up heavy stuff just for fun and sparring until I can’t breathe but I also love glitter nail polish, red lipstick, fake eyelashes, and cozy leopard print pj’s. Not all the same time…the make up and the pj’s that is. I’m feminine, really I am.
This picture, as ridiculous as it is, captures my two sides, the glamour girevik (Russian word for kettlebeller) even though my nails are all chewed down.
BTW Brent took that for project someone is putting together. I just don’t put on eyelashes and grab a kettlebell for photos.
My 30 Day Primal Challenge is going well, three days into it. I’m enjoying the “challenge” going “Grok“. After leaning out and training the last few months for the RKC, I found myself sort of bored and not sure what to focus on next so the primal challenge is a perfect fit. I need mini-goals to keep me focused, excited, and on track with the big picture.
Lastly, I saw this older but good post on Planet Green, 7 Foods So Unsafe That Even Farmers Won’t Eat Them. I love it when I read an article and I can feel all self righteous. Don’t you? ;-) Actually, I’m really sad about the tomatoes. I LOVE canned tomatoes for the flavor and the convenience.
Does anyone else ever feel like you have two sides equally important but totally opposite? What about that list? Do you follow some, none, or all of it? I would say I follow all of it 90% of the time. Does anyone know if Muir Glen and Trader Joe’s canned tomatoes have BCA in the lining?
Have a great weekend!
Hugs and High Fives,
