'Sup Luvah Luvahs!
For those of you who do not yet "like" the Dubes on Facebook...
Number One: Get with the fucking program and like that shit.
Number Two: I posted a photo of me, my new nails and a caption explaining that I was not able to bring you dubie yesterday...One of the (MANY) perks of "liking" the page. <SIGH> That's right. You get hooked up with exclusive pictures and what not that I do not post on the blog. It's very special.
Now. <pause> before we move on to the BIG TALK on what's healthy and what isn't, here are two more selfies of me showing off my new nails, because one just doesn't cut it. The last two designs were a DELETE BUST, so I am très proud of these. Very happy with my decision. Super chic.
Okay. One more thing worth mentioning...
I Crossfitted yesterday and did my most difficult WOD thus far...Here is what happened:
5 Rounds for Time of:
20 Kettlebell swings
*2 minute rest in between each set.
OOMPH. Doesn't look that bad on paper, but holy mofo, was it a gasser. I wanted to vom post-workout. Took me 15 minutes of vegetation before I was able to collect myself and my belongings and haul my ass back to the city. It was HATE and LOVE all rolled into one. Post-workout I felt very accomplished. I was pretty satisfied with my times, being that it was only my sixth group class and I am still so new to exerting myself in such a batshit crazy way.
Round 1: 1:49
Round 2: 1:46
Round 3: 2:03
Round 4: 1:53
Round 5: 1:51
That's some yolo gangster swag right there.
WHAT'S "HEALTHY" and WHAT ISN'T
I'd first like to say that the whole idea of "healthy" is so subjective. To me, healthy = happy, first and foremost. There are a buttload of miserable people out there who juice cleanse all day everyday. In other words, I totally think that WHAT you eat, comes secondary to actually being a happy person on the inside. I can counter-argue, too, that if you eat mostly whole, real, unprocessed foods that come from reputable, responsible sources, you will absolutely be a happier person. But it doesn't start with the food. It starts with YOU. That's all I'll say on that.
Now, more than ever, there is an overwhelming outpour of diets, methods, programs, cleanses, etc., that all swear that their way is the best way. Many of them contradict each other, so it's no wonder that so many people are confused about what really is the "right" or "wrong" way of eating.
Here is what I have to say about that: We are all biologically DIFFERENT from each other, therefore we all have a biologically different reaction to different foods / different ways of eating.
TUNE-IN TO YOUR BODY. EXPERIMENT. Be aware of HOW YOU feel after you eat certain foods. Notice patterns. Write stuff down. Your body is the BEST source of information. LISTEN TO IT, then act accordingly. Fuck everything and everyone else. You are YOUR OWN EXPERT.
If you notice that eating healthy sources of gluten makes you feel great, by all means eat it! The same goes for soy, dairy or animal products...even stupid juice cleanses! I'll be the first to say that I HATE (with an emphasis on the "t") juice cleanses. They do not work for me. I am also a meat eater. I function at my finest eating this way right now. Not to say that one year from now this will be the best diet for me, but given how active I am and the type of exercise I am doing, this way of eating fuels me well and leaves me feeling energized. If that changes, I will have to tweak the way I eat.
Get it? Got it? GOOD. Boom.
That's a wrap.
I love you. Now I need to go be my big, bad bossy self for five more hours...Holler.
