VISTA #10: Battle of The Southeners

Hey you guys!

If you read my previous VISTA, you could see that after the farewell party, I had to go to the box early in the morning the next day. That’s because our box held our first CrossFit competition and I was one of the crews. WOOOOOPPP.

So I contacted one of my friends if she still needed more help during the event but apparently they had enough crew and judges. However, one day before the event, she contacted me and asked if I could help her as the scoring team. So I said yes. I was really excited about it!

The night before I went out with my colleagues for karaoke so I was rather tired in the morning (check out the story here). I arrived at the box at 6.30 am but no one was there so I had to wait for around 15 minutes before the others arrived. Then we started to prepare the equipment and everything. Since I didnt have yellow (crew)/orange (judge) t-shirt, my friend lent hers to me. But her t-shirt was orange so I had a different colour hahaha.

After the briefing, many athletes came and registered. Then they started to warm up, while I was trying to figure out the leaderboard and scoring system. One of us brought 3 bottles of coffee. OH THANK YOU. I woke up realllllyyy early and I was sleep deprived so I was really sleepy. Ended up drinking too much, my stomach hurts hahahha.

Anyway, the event went real smooth and fast. I was so amazed by our teamwork actually. We were really efficient and fast. Right after the heat, the judge gave me the score sheet and I inputted it right away. The other crew was really fast at preparing the equipment for the next heat. WOAH. It was sooo fun. Looking at those athletes compete was making me excited!

The event itself started from the idea of one of our coaches, Coach Oka and his team member, Sofia and Adit, when they competed in Malaysia. They thought, hey why dont we create event at our box as well? And boom! The brainstormed the WOD, the event, everything! Damn it was so fun! I really want to participate in another event in the future. I guess I really am stuck in this cult huh? 😀 Once you’re in you cant go back!



Working Out For “The Perfect Body”

Hey you guys!

I’ve been pretty occupied lately with packing etc. Eh, it took me a reaaaaalllllyy long time because I watched the CrossFit Games at the same time. Hahaha. Wow I cant believe it that I am going to move abroad soon. I hope my VISA is issued soon (praying real hard).

Yesterday I went to morning class (8 am). WOW. Morning. Class. What a rare sight of me going to the box at the morning right? And it was Sunday. I usually still on my bed, hugging my pillow by that time hahha. So lately, I have been working out at the box again and I noticed some things. My body of course started to change again due to working out, more proper sleep pattern/duration, kind of healthier diet etc. BUT I dont really pay attention to my body that much anymore now. Like okay, it changed that’s nice but it’s not my first priority anymore.

I wont lie. Of course I want that “perfect body” and I used to working out with that as my goal. My sole goal. But not anymore now! I find the changes in my body as a bonus. I, now, work out because I find it fun and it’s great for my health. Of course I still need to improve several aspects, for example my strength and endurance are still not that good but I am still working on it. Because I used to do it for “the perfect body,” when I didnt see the results, I just felt down and upset. Now, not anymore! I barely pay attention to those changes 😀



It’s (not) my first day!

Hey you guys!

I’m back to the cult! But since I’m going to move to Germany, I only bought the one month membership. But anywaaaay, I am baaackkk

Oh mate I just looooveeee being there at the box. It’s been months since the last time I went to the box and everyone was giving me high five and welcomed me to the box. The WOD was rather “light” according to the coaches (yea right). So it’s a 3 rounds of 800m (male) / 600m (female) run, 20 thrusters, 20 head to toe (scaled knee to chest; scaled: leg rise). I didn’t bring my gloves and guys, it’s been months since I actually exercise sooooo leg rise it is!

Why am I turning into a baby reindeer?!

In the morning I did jog-walk (more to walk though) for almost 3km. Then when I saw what the WOD is, I was like okay legs bear with me will ya. Lemme tell you, for someone who is soooo unfit that WOD was cray cray. I chose 5 kg for each hand for my thrusters. Eh I alwaaaayss use 5 kg hahaha. So anyway guys, when we did our warm up, the coach actually made us hold the squat for 10seconds and I was like trembling like a baby reindeer the heeeck is thisssss. Why am I turning into a baby reindeer?!

Eh I guess it’s just my body trying to adapt (AGAIN) and yelling the heck Kemmy?! You trying to be a baby reindeer that bad?! What are you Bambi?

Alright back to the WOD. The WOD time cap is 40 minutes but then the coach reduced it to 30. Eh. Okay. I don’t know if I could finish it. Lol. Baby reindeer. When I did the thrusters on the first round, I was like. The. Heck. Is. This. Aren’t they 5kg?! Why on earth are they so heavy? And my legs… why are they turning into jello already now? Why? Why? Whyyyy? So many why.

To my surprise, I finished the WOD at 21 minutes 17 seconds. Oh. Wow. Miracle. I really thought I was not gonna be able to finish the whole thing. But hey! Look! I did it! Yeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaa

and now my legs are dying.

Will I exercise again tomorrow? Most certainly, yes! Oooh so excited!

Well if you excuse me now I’m going to be a baby reindeer till God knows when
