Sunday, March 25th, 2012

Caught her sitting for a few seconds.  That’s as long as she’ll sit, ever.

Head over to Las Vegas Photographer Tara Romasanta‘s blog to check out her take on this week’s theme.

Green | Project 52: Week 12 | Honolulu Photographer

Sunday, March 18th, 2012

Kiss, me I’m (1/8th) Irish!  You wouldn’t know it by looking at her, would you?

I had visions of way more than just one photo for this week but this was the first shot I got and then she stopped cooperating.  Of course.  At least I got one!  :)

Make the rounds by heading on over to Las Vegas Photographer Tara Romasanta’s blog to see her take on this week’s theme.

Extreme | Project 52: Week 11 | Honolulu Photographer

Sunday, March 11th, 2012

This week’s theme for Project 52 is extreme and the first thing I thought of was CrossFit.  CrossFit is extreme.  The workouts kick your butt every.single.time.  Even if you think you’re in good shape, CrossFit will challenge you and make you better.  Even the athletes who have been CrossFitting for years are huffing and puffing after a WOD (workout of the day).  That’s the point, I guess.

I’ve been CrossFitting for almost 3 months and although I still can’t do most of the workouts as prescribed (I do a lot of things modified), I love the feeling of finishing a workout.  Especially when half way through it I think I’m going to puke or pass out. Seriously.  Most of the time I’m the weakest and the slowest.  I’m also the smallest, so I have an excuse.  :P  (Disclaimer: I only CrossFit because my cousin owns the place.  Otherwise I’d be way too intimidated to even step foot in the place because the athletes who workout at her box are extreme.  They are hardcore athletes! Look at them!)

On this day, the WOD was the 2012 Reebok CrossFit Games Open Workout 12.3
As many rounds as possible in 18 minutes, of:
15 Box Jumps (24″/20″).  This means the men jump onto a box that is 24″ high, women jump onto a box that is 20″ high.
12 Push Press (115/75 lbs.).  Men do 115 lbs, women do 75 lbs.  I did 35!  HA!
9 Toes-to-bar.  You hang from the bar and touch it with your toes.  I just bring my legs up to parallel.

You’re doing this for 18 minutes nonstop.  18 minutes is an eternity when you’re working like this!  This is not like doing 18 minutes on the treadmill.  Oh, no.  I only got through 6 full rounds plus 15 box jumps but I was pretty proud of myself.  Because I finished, even though after the first couple rounds I thought I might puke.  :P

Now head on over to Las Vegas Photographer Tara Romasanta‘s blog for her take on this week’s theme.
