Dear Coke Talk: On fun-sized advice. →
“How do I find the beauty to become confident if I hate everything about myself? You did not hate yourself as a child. Somewhere along the way, you learned how. Retrace your steps and unlearn. Forgive yourself, and get rid of the negativity.” I loved this. Its so true.
Dragging my ass out of bed at 6am to go into the...
Apparently yes. LESSSSS GO! Edit: JK weather report lied to me. No snow. Yay
First climbing practice in the AM!
Gonna tidy up my room, hop in the shower, and get all my books in order for my classes tomorrow. Then lights out so I can be up bright and early to hit the rocks!
climbclimbsleepclimb: Swiss Account bouldering movie Watched this earlier. Love LT11 films! I really don’t personally enjoy bouldering because my bad knee can’t take hits when I fall or jump down onto it very well but this is a cool film! Also there is a super cute cat….Soooo.. Yeah.
10 Signs You're Following An Unhealthy Tumblr...
fitvillains: This picture makes me cry. By no means is it the worst of its kind, but it represents a big problem we have here on Tumblr. I love Tumblr. I find inspiration here every, single day. I love hearing from you guys, and seeing your familiar names pop up in my dashboard. But in between the recipes, workouts and tips, there’s an alarming (ALARMING, SADDENING, DANGEROUS) amount of...
Figuring out what to do this summer...
I think I want to do a divemaster internship. I am SCUBA certified but I would love to dive more. And I found this pretty cool internship. I know its not neuroscience but I figure I can try to do some research and then do this on top. Or just work + this. AH. I JUST WANNA BE OUTDOORS ALL SUMMER LONG.
2 and a half hour rock climbing days=ahhmazing.
Today I decided I wanted to try a few hard climbs that have been punishing me but I am also just really not in the same climbing shape as I was at the end of last semester. So I decided to climb all the milds/spicys on 3 ropes in a row. It was actually pretty tiring! I mean… I was climbing up, coming down, climbing, etc. all in a row. So I really was sweatin by the end even if they...
Figuring out summer plans...
Trying to find out how I can do research for part of the summer and also travel to do a lot of rock climbing. A job would be good to. WHAT TO DO??
On a more optimistic note..
I have an ENTIRE month to get ready for this competition! Considering I have climbed/gymed it up 5 days so far this week in preparation, if I keep this up who knows how I will actually do! Also Petzl, Black Diamond, and some other brands are sponsoring it soooooo eek!
Entering my first climbing competition in... ONE...
YEEK. Exactly a month from now I am gonna be entering a competition. Its really informal but there should be a bunch of climbers. I don’t expect to win or even get close. But I really wanna do it. I am entering with a few climbing friends. One of whom is a BEAST. Shes so good. But I cannot wait.
Done with gym part 1 of day 3 of Kick Butt, Take...
Seated leg press, glute bridge kicks, leg adduction and abduction, wide grip pull ups, dips, and parallel grip pull ups. Only a tiny bit of jogging. Part 2 of KBTN will be squats and lunges at home + jump roping.
That was a good last day of break :)
Class starts tomorrow. Back to the daily grind! Glad I at least did a few new climbs today. Arms got quite the workout. Which is what I needed. Gym day tomorrow again :)
Back from some climbing!
Ehhhhh. I am still rusty after such a long winter break. Haha. But its getting better. Did some good moves. Figured out the beginning to a harder climb I want to do. Ripped the hands up a bit. Got chalk on my face. The norm. So good.
Was planning on doing yoga last night as a “part two” of my workout day 1 because I was expecting a slow night at work. Of course, it totally was not a slow night. I ended up having tables upstairs and downstairs and was literally running running running up and down for a few hours. So I think that counts as a good workout ;) Ate around 1,400 yesterday because I know I burned a...
"Some hit the wall, some crush it...."
Oh really? I grab my chalk bag and climb the fuck over it.
Unnnnfff Part one of day 1 of Kick Butt Take Names...
Just got home from the gym. I’ll write that up more later. It was ab day. Now I gotta do laundry and get ready for work. Part 2 later is gonna be some nice yoga to relax after a long day.
First practice is next Monday at 7am (!!!) and basically I have a month to WHIP MY ASS into shape. At the end of February there is a student rock climbing competition that I may or may not be competing in! Now that I have a goal, lehhhhh goooo! Starting today. Going to lab for a bit then to the gym to do some serious damage (hopefully not to my self). Sundays are rest days (I work all day...
Ummmm what up Alex Honnold shirtless.......
Goofiest crush ever.
Sooooo I was asked to join my schools rock...
3 days a week at 7am sounds pretty awful but lets be honest? Its climbing. I am already there!
Hahahahahah. Love it.
Titles Are Lame: The thing about climbing gyms →
adikdikisasmallantelope: For your entertainment I have created a list of things in climbing gyms that transcend oceans: the really buff chick/dude who can climb everything and makes you want to quit and get stronger at the same time the older gentlemen who rocks some serious old-school style and gear the newbies who are impressed by everything the climbing couple the awkward three-some ...
