For the next six weeks I will be on a protein bias meal plan. Meat, meat, and more meat some fruits and vegetables and lots of fats! My goal is to regain self control over sugar. My biggest confrontation with the enemy with be for Halloween, no candy for me this year. The only two cheats I will consider will be sushi and some flavored beverages such as Gatorade, vitamin water, and maybe a cocktail or two. Luckily I am in love with cow, I foresee a lot of BBQ in my near future.

Also in six weeks I’ll be in Long Beach, CA for the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu No Gi World Tournament to support two time World Champ Bryant Pangelinan.

Anyways I’ve been busy with traveling and I look forward to getting back on the road as soon as I pay off some more debt, good stuff!!! Below is a music video for a local band that I got to take part in! Hint, I’m the mermaid… LMAO

I just would like to send thanks to all of you people who check up on me to see if my lazy self has taken the time to relearn English and post on this ol’ blog. I keep saying to myself that I should get on the ball and post at least once a week. Part of my issue is I do not have Photoshop on this computer and I like to make my photos edgy so that you guys think I’m awesome. Another issue is I don’t really have any video editing software to make really compelling videos for you guys to watch. I would hate to bore you. And lastly I don’t really have very many people checking this place out unless reddit or some other web phenomenon decides to post a picture of me doing a really light bench press or something.

I’m not too sure if people find me interesting?! So my goal is to post once a week, I’m thinking Tuesday nights to start. Also, I’m gonna work on that Photoshop video editing software thing. I dare myself to accept this challenge. I also dare you, the reader, to give a sh*t about what I have to say. I’m actually kind of excited!

The photo is of a women’s CrossFit competition I did. I came in 21 out of 100 with only two weeks of training after being out for two months. The next FemmeFit is expected around January/February 2012, that’s my new motivation as well as the 2012 CF Sectionals. Cheer me on guys!
