Women's WOD- How fast are you?

In the 5:30am Women's Only class this morning I predicted that the fastest time should be somewhere between seven and a half and eight and a half sweet minutes. As I looked over the board and then began to see how things were panning out, I was thinking more like 9:30 min for Rx. Because I needed to know, I jumped into Crystal McReynolds' 9:15 am Women's Only class to get my first metcon for the day.

10 burpees
10 DB snatch @ 25#'s 5L/5R (full squat)
10 ab mat sit ups
X 6 rds

Time: 9 min

So, I have to ask the ladies: how fast can you go?

We take for granted sometimes the fact that we just get to come into the gym with phenomenal coaches and do a workout, no big deal, stretch and leave. We forget that sometimes we don't need that water break, we don't need to stop and wipe our brow, or lollygag. We just think we are in pain, we just think that we could not possibly breathe any harder. But do you game your workout? Do you look at it and figure out a strategy so that you can go your fastest?

Some of you say it does NOT matter.

BUT IT DOES. This is what makes you stronger mentally. This is what knocks out the ugly dude on the left shoulder and lets the stud on the right fight till the death!

Next time you look at the WOD on the white board how will you game it?

Canola Oil

After the I am CrossFit nutrition meeting, I realized that I know very little about food. I don't think this is the only thing that brought this to my attention. The deal is I know what foods to eat and what foods not to eat and I just keep it simple. But all you folks who like to know how to cook make it more difficult than I do, therefore I get questions that I need to go back and learn a bit more about. Thank you all for keeping me in line. For making me better and smarter!

Here you can find out why you may not want to be eating canola oil! WOW, who would have thought. So, if you bake, lets try a better option.

I promise to you that I will continue to learn more about foods you like to cook with and in return you must keep it simple - lean protein, vegetables, some fruit, nuts and seeds!

I was honored to be honored on Monday morning at 6:15am by about eight Lululemon superstars!

As they all lined up Janine read to me:

"Carey, you continuously inspire us all whenever you're around. Your ability to inspire as a person, as a trainer, as a mother, friend and contributing member of society is to be commended. We admire your constant desire to be better, learn more, and expand your educations- to better yourself and your surroundings.

It is because of this we have EXCLUSIVELY CHOSEN YOU out of all our alumni ambassadors and current ambassadors to attend Landmark as a Gift from LULULEMON.

Our founder Chip Wilson felt so passionate about his experience at Landmark and its effects on his life personally and professionally that he wanted to offer it as a gift to others. Landmark offers a practical technology for producing breakthroughs, achievements that are extraordinary, outside the limits of what's already predictable, attainable or known.

We know you are destined for greatness - you have already achieved so much. We want to take your life to a whole new level. Will you accept our offer to go to LANDMARK on us?"


WOW! I am so blessed in so many ways. I have said this before and I will continue to say it: I love what I do, I love where I am, and I can't wait to go where I am going! I thank you, yes all of you, for being a part of the journey!

It is the new year and I need a new look

Thank you for all being a part of my life. I am blessed. I would like to pass blessings along as well as enlarge my territory.

This year, I have to decide what I want the rest of my life to look like. My dreams and aspirations will be more than I ever thought I was capable of.

Do we say that every year? Do we reevaluate what we accomplished last year and what this year holds? Do you know how you got where you are? Have you ever just gotten there by "luck," "accident," or sheer determination and choice? The answer is, you made the choice whether you were conscious of it or not. Now how does last year look. Great? Okay? Terrible? Did you achieve everything you wanted?

Last year I said I was looking to take on a few clients that wanted to change their lives. Several of you emailed me. My program is designed for you to have complete success in all areas of your life in 2010. We will use CrossFit as the vehicle. This will be a group program. I have chosen the group format because I want there to be more than just one, more than just one accountability person, more than just one opportunity to change your world. I want to bring like-minded, determined, strong women together to change the world we live in.

If you are interested in joining this year's MASTER MIND WOMEN'S FIGHT CLUB, please leave your comments on this post. No big details have to be left, but a desire to commit will be established.

Details coming soon...

What the heck have I been doing?

First things first when you take a trip back home for Christmas, find a CrossFit gym! CrossFit South Plains opened up for us no problem. As you can see Lubbock got a little (6 inches) of snow, that didn't stop the CC Crew! Thanks Russell for your hospitality!
Every Christmas Eve we attend the 5:30pm mass where the kids of Christ the King Elementary reenact the story of Mary and Joseph and Baby Jesus.
Precious Moments.
Celebrating a 7lb. 3oz baby Jesus birth with my mom. Did Jesus drink whiskey?
This is my daughter, she was a little disappointed when this gift was not what she thought it was. She thought it was a three story princess house. I made sure to move it quick, I did not want her to even think about it. Has this ever happened to you?
This year JT and I got more than just coal.
Yes we did white elephant gifts...this was a fave.

My sister came in from Tennessee and decided to practice some voodoo on Kris to find out the sex of Zach and Ashley's baby...we were all tested, we think it's a boy.
Taking the kids of the kids to ride the train down at Barton Springs. Cash and Lucian were not with us for this ride.
Little music for the ladies before we headed over to the game! River Walk fun!

Alamo Bowl Game. Go Tech! Yes we are from Lubbock and we ROCK!
