Traveling & Working Out – The Reality
Travel, Workout

For those of you who know me in my regular life, you know that I’m always doing something active. Whether it’s derby at least twice per week, lifting 2-3 days a week, or some other yoga or Zumba type class… one of my favorite pastimes is moving. When I was thinking about this trip, one […]

Is it Easy to Cancel a Crunch Gym Membership?
Real Life, Travel, Workout

Before I get into the cancellation process at Crunch, I DO want to mention that before I cancelled, I DID check to see if they had international locations, because I would have 100% kept my membership if there was any chance I’d work out even once or twice a month while abroad. Sadly, Crunch has […]

Silverswift Great Barrier Reef – Intro Diving Course Review
Real Life, Travel, Workout

Let’s be honest… you CAN’T go to Australia without at least entertaining a plan to visit the Great Barrier Reef. It wasn’t any different for me, my mom and my brother. The question was really… where to even start the research! There are an inordinate amount of companies with all different kinds of services for […]

World Spartan Race 2015 & Free Race Code!!!
Real Life, Workout

  So I’ll be honest, I’ve never done a Spartan Race… I would absolutely love to do one, but I’m terrified by the impact it would have on my ACL, and subsequently my derby participation.

October 2014 Check-In
About DokiDara, Crossfit, Real Life, Workout

Yes, yes, I’m SO aware that it’s October 20th. HOWEVER, I did manage to take these stats down on the 10th, so I don’t feel that horribly bad. I do have a LOT of things to talk about though, so I need to get back on the wagon here. This week is my last in […]

Conquering a Fear – Rope Climbs!
Crossfit, Real Life, Workout

I have to admit something…. I’ve been crossfitting since March of 2013 and I have never climbed a rope. Never. I tried once, maybe 6 months ago… My friend Lori (who has now become a spectacular L1!) was watching me and she made me stop halfway through because I couldn’t get the foot-lock down and […]

“…Maybe You Will Fix it in One Night”
About DokiDara, Crossfit, Olympic Lifting, Real Life, Workout

After finishing up my heavy squat cycle, my coach asked me what I wanted to work on next. I thought about it for a bit, and I decided that I thought the best move for me, next, would be to fix my strange “power snatch and power clean everything” affliction. Thus, I have dubbed this […]
