Your Body is Your Autobiography

Over the years your bodies become walking autobiographies, telling friends and strangers alike of the minor and major stresses of your lives.
Marilyn Ferguson


Notice the guys at the auto body shop watching me in the top picture? I felt pretty bad ass. There is something about lifting, pushing with your entire body, and flipping a tractor tire around.
It takes skill. I loved it we just got the tires recently. I'm going to start flipping them on rest days. I wanna work up to the big tire and flip that sucka yep there is a bigger one. Bigger than me.
I must say that squat looks pretty damn good.

It's all about focusing and saying fuck a lot! Wow look at that vain in my neck it's about to explode!

I was pretty dirty after that workout. My whole body is sore today.

Catra, we all know you're a sweetheart, but those dudes in the garage probably didn't know that. They were looking at a girl covered with tats lifting a tractor tire and yelling FUCK! FUCK!!! FUCK!!!! They were probably scared to death of you! LOL!

Catra,

I just read your post about your dad. I am still crying. Thanks for sharing that.

That's an awesome tire flip! A buddy and I are taking a kettlebell personal training session tonight. I cannot wait.

Thanks again.

"It's all about focusing and saying fuck a lot!" That is the BEST informal description of Crossfit I have ever heard!!

catra, you might want to use some gloves when your flipping tires you can cut your hands up pretty good if there is exposed wires .mikeh

Hey Neal-
Thank you for the kind words. I love kettlebells. We had a clinic last week but I was racing ;( so I couldn't make it.

Catra said...

Hey Bill thanks ;)

Hey Mikeh- I was watching videos and noticed guys wearing gloves. I will just make sure that there is no exposed wires. I need to feel the rubber to move it. I think the gloves would make it harder. Thanks though.

Your body may be an autobiography....

If you compare my body to a book, it would be in the horror section.

Hope that made you laugh for a monday morning! Take care! :-)
