Cool It on the CrossFit: What’s Rhabdomyolysis? - The Daily Beast

Here’s what you should know about me: I do not CrossFit and my workouts are not always intense. In fact, I’ve kept my strength training pretty moderate since birthing my son, simply because I have not completely figured out how my body is responding to all of these changes.

However, I suffered the injury of all injuries (outside of broken limbs) for any athlete or athletic individual. My muscles have completely broken down. More specifically, my biceps.

My workouts will never be the same. What I thought was a progressively complex workout, turned out to be scary and life-changing. Do I want more muscle? Yes. Do I want visible muscles? Hell yes! Am I willing to sacrifice my organs and life for it? F*ck no.

This is freeing for me.

There was a span of time in the planning of my wedding, where I thought I should dedicate some time to remember my father. When it was all said and done I decided to hold him in my heart because I am an ugly crier. Things get messy and I get weak and sad, because I am a daddy’s girl. And putting that much of him on display would have me on the floor.

Watching this video reminded of the plans I had. And watching her cry (while I cried on the other end of this phone), is the reason I couldn’t do it. Fathers mean so much to little girls. Or grown girls. This girls brother is the sh*t. I wonder if he’s married. I knew a few women he’d be great with…

Woooo! I feel better.

Healing Foods: Kiwi Fruit (Gooseberry)

This is for my people with HBP (high blood pressure) and for those with weak immune systems. During a study in China that questioned why so many people were being diagnosed with esophageal cancers, researchers found that residents also had levels of nitrites. Which they believed played a major roles in the cancer diagnoses. 

To counter this phenomena, researchers turned to vitamin C, based on earlier research. They found that the high levels of nitrites went hand in hand with low levels of vitamin C. You know what happened next: they supplied their study group with vitamin C and BOOM! Their nitrite levels dropped dramatically. 

Kiwi fruit is a go-to for many vitamins and minerals, but mostly vitamin C and potassium (the HBP enemy).

Healing Foods: Greens

Pick one, any one: beets, collard, chicory, kale, spinach, mustard, Swiss chard or turnip. They’re ALL packed with a long list on nutrients credits. They prevent cancers, lower cholesterol, help individuals to lose weight and control diabetes. 

Low in calories and fat, greens offer up vitamin A and vitamin C. Talk about an antioxidant powerhouse. I can’t wait to eat plate full today.
