Really, mid-year review already?

*sigh* Unless you’ve never worked for someone else, you know what I’m talking about: the dreaded mid-year review. That time of year when you rehash your achievements – or lack thereof – rationalize your shortcomings, and suck up the “needs improvement” recommendations. But why do we seem to take our work goals and achievements much more seriously than those of our...

Journal: oui ou non?

Jul 09

Back in high school, one of my English teachers had us keep a daily journal, which I wrote faithfully in. I could exercise my creativity with freewriting, in which case much of the stuff that landed on the page was nonsense. Sometimes, a few paragraphs would form, and emerge later on as a short story. Other times I’d wax poetic, with the most memorable tome...

Just…be better.

So…apparently it’s been awhile since I’ve written anything here. To tell the truth, I’ve been in a bit of a funk. Being stressed out and unhappy at work has somehow managed to trickle down into every other aspect of my life. I’ve been snippy with hubby.

April’s been what can only be distilled down to “absolute shit” (note: my humble opinion only). I’ve eaten like crap. I’ve eaten crap. I took a rest week first of the month,...

OK, so now what?

My apologies for ignoring this online space for awhile. Other than cranking out a quick post for Tabata Times a couple of weeks ago, I haven’t had the opportunity to write much for myself with time spent focusing on the Open and what’s traditionally the busiest time of year for me at my ‘day job’. Exposed! For me – and many others worldwide, I’m sure – the...

Gettin’ freaky

Like most CrossFit freaks, I was glued to the interwebz last Thursday night when 14.1 was announced. Unlike some of you, I received the news with a “hellz ya!” – the movements were easy, and I knew I’d do pretty well, since double-unders are one thing I’m pretty good at. My hopes were that I’d perform well enough to land in that coveted top 200 Masters space. Our 6...
