Rebecca The Red is Moving!

27 Jul

Hello my wonderful and lovely readers! I’ve got a couple of things to cover:

First, happiest Friday to you! What are your plans this weekend? I’ll be shooting at the WOD Gear Team Series in Southern California tomorrow at The Rose Bowl in Pasadena, CA. If you’re local (or visiting), come out and watch – it’s free for spectators! Plus there will be some SoCal favorites out there competing (in case you missed the CrossFit Games): Katie Hogan, Becca Voigt, Kristan Clever, Andrea Ager and so much more awesome! As always, if you’re there,  I would love to meet you!

Also, I will no longer be posting from WordPress anymore. I bought www.RebeccaTheRed.com, and as of yesterday (with the help from a friend on the east coast), all Rebecca The Red posts were transferred to that site, so when I post (new content) on my domain name, it will not show up here anymore (despite your subscription). I’m trying to figure out the subscription plugin for the new domain name, so sit tight.

So what does this mean (in the meantime)? Well, it means that if you want to keep viewing photos & reading content from Rebecca The Red, you’ll have to update your bookmark from http://rebeccathered.wordpress.com to www.RebeccaTheRed.com. Also, I have a Facebook Page where my posts will still go to, so that’s another way to access content. Either way, I want to say thank you for following! I have some great new posts in the works for the new site that I cannot wait to share with you all, and of course keep an eye out for the photos from this weekend that I will post next week! Until then.

xoxo

Eating Zone – Week One Recap

24 May

Hey guys! Rebecca The Red checking in with you and sharing progress. My first week of eating Zone went pretty well, all things considered. I stopped weighing myself a long time ago, so I don’t know what kind of progress I’ve made in terms of pounds, but there’s a noticeable difference. Besides, I’m not really doing this for weight loss. Regardless of intent, my work slacks are loose again, which means change is happening! The meals I ate for the week were as follows (3 block):

Breakfast:
1 cup almond milk 
1 large scoop protein powder 
7-9 cashews 
1 cup strawberries
1/2 cup blueberries

1st Snack:
1 tomato (sliced), 
1/2 Tbs guacamole, 
1 (oz) string cheese

Lunch:
1 3 oz can tuna, 
3 tsp light mayo, 
1 slice of wheat bread, 
1/2  green apple

2nd Snack:
1 cup fresh strawberries, 
1/4 cup cottage cheese, 
1 macadamia nut

Dinner:
3 oz chicken breast (sautéed in tsp olive oil, garlic & crushed red peppers), 
2 1/2 cups kale  
1 peach

On Monday, I substituted a 4 oz glass of red wine for the peach (rough day). Tuesday & Wednesday I have night class, so I got two chicken tacos (fresco style) from Taco Bell. Friday I was running late and didn’t have time to make a breakfast shake, so I got a bacon/gouda sandwich from Starbucks and removed one slice of the artisan bread. Then Friday night, I went to the CrossFit 310 anniversary party, where I had one piece of chicken (about the size of my palm), a hand-size portion of greens with cheese, strawberries, nuts, and a small amount of balsamic dressing. The weekend rolled around, and as usual, I had a lot of trouble keeping up with my weekly routine, which means I didn’t get all my meals in on time. Then I went to a Roger Waters concert where I consumed many beers & a pretzel (because I was starving from lack of food). And in my boozy state, I also had some chips after the concert (because we all know about post-boozin’ munchies)….and yeah. Sunday was even worse, but we won’t go into that. I’m really trying to make it work though, which has proven somewhat difficult because I’m at the end of the semester (two weeks left).

Eating Zone – Week One (with Before Photos)

17 May

And so it begins, again. As some of you know, I participated in my CrossFit gym’s Live Fit challenge back in January, and won 3rd place! Winning cash was great (which bought me some sweet new CrossFit kicks), but the physical results I achieved were far more rewarding. I’d love to say I sustained those eating habits after I won – the eating / sleeping / hydration habits that contributed to 10+ Personal Records – but the truth is, when I injured my hand during the 12.3 Open WOD, I (sort of) gave up on eating that way. The thing is, I had never dealt with an injury before, and certainly not one that would drastically limit how I spent my time at the box. No amount of reading material can prepare you for the psychological response to your first injury. And so, I ate.

But isn’t that life? CrossFit athletes will tell you, nutrition can be a rollercoaster ride. Life happens, and sometimes your best intentions get derailed. It just so happens I’m on an up right now, so I thought I would give strict nutrition another spin. This time though, I wanted to try Zone because my coach says it’s optimal for CrossFit athletes.

So this post marks week one. I will be updating weekly to track progress, note any changes, difficulties, and give a breakdown of what I’m eating. The very top photo is a collage of my before photos which were taken on Monday (May 14th). Let’s see where I end up in four weeks!

2012 CrossFit Winter Shakedown Competition in Photos

21 Feb

This past weekend I went to the Winter Shakedown Competition at CrossFit FAST in Westlake Village to support our team from CrossFit 310 & to snap some photos of all the fantastic athletes that came out to compete. It was a great turn out, and the event ran smoothly. They even let me inside the athlete ring to snap photos during the 1st WOD! I bought some tanks from Life AsRx, ran into & met the co-owner of WOD Gear (Gabriel Pelino) at Starbucks, who is a totally sweet guy, and I (and pretty much everyone else) also drooled over Andrea Ager’s (pictured first below) quads and sweet rope descent. Major congratulations to our 310 team Brook Epperson, Jason Tank, Brittny Burford & Graham Burford! Our gym’s continued success is a joy to watch.  – Rebecca The Red
