Been travelling for work this week so haven’t been able to climb in over a week. Hoping for good temps when I get back home! Here’s a pic from a session earlier in the gear. Mindbender living up its name. First move was do-able... just gotta figure out that next throw...any beta is appreciated!!!
Classes right now are a really amazing blend of CFSQ veterans, transfers from gyms from all over the map, and total CrossFit newbies fresh out of Foundations! In the spirit of CrossFit community (and making new friends) introduce yourselves and definitely help each other out 👍. Oh, and also in the spirit of CrossFit... we hope you enjoyed Fran today 🤢
Winter setting in at the amazingly beautiful, but suddenly crazy popular, Joffre Lakes. Now that it's off-season, we decided to do it. The trail was icy and relatively quiet, there were still a decent number of people out. We had heard tales about just how unprepared some people are for this hike, but it really hits you when you see people hiking in dress shoes and moccasins (!!!) Crazy. Be safe everyone. #joffrelakes#winter#winterhike#glaciers#mountains#safetyfirst#beautiful#snow#hike

This state of wise innocence is entered by shedding cynicism and protectionism, and by re-entering the state of wonder one sees in most humans who are very young and many who are very old. It is a practice of looking through the eyes of a knowing and loving spirit instead of through those of the whipped dog, the hounded creature, the mouth atop a stomach, the angry wounded human
Innocence is a state that is renewed as one sleeps. Unfortunately, many throw it aside with the coverlet as they arise each day. It would be better to take an alert innocence with us and draw it close for warmth. Though the initial return to this state may require scraping away years of jaded viewpoints, decades of callous and carefully constructed bulwarking, once one has returned one never has to pry for it, dig for it, ever again
To return to an alert innocence is not so much an effort, like moving a pile of bricks from here to there, as it is standing still long enough to let the spirit find you. It is said that all that you are seeking is also seeking you, that if you lie still, sit still, it will find you. It has been waiting for you for a long time. Once it is here, don't move away. Rest. See what happens next

Just wrapped up a LIVE video sharing my thoughts around personal development, aswell as tips and tricks for you to do in a day to make legit changes in your life👊🏼🙌🏼. I love this quote by @msrachelhollis , it reads “You and only you, are ultimately responsible for who you become, and how happy you are”✨💗✨ This right here, does NOT get more clearer then that.
We can listen to all these incredible podcasts and read super inspiring books, but if you are not doing anything with it, your life will NEVER change. #coldhardtruth .
What is something in your life that you have been talking about, but have not step into action on? I dare you to push yourself outside your comfort zone, and step into action, TODAY!
Do you know why whey protein is considered to be the “Gold Standard” when it comes to sports nutrition? Hint: it has to do with the method for determining the quality of protein.⠀
The most common methods for determining the quality include: #1 - calculating the protein of nitrogen retained (the greater the proportion of nitrogen retained, the greater the protein utilization) and #2 - comparing the protein against egg protein (albumin), which is known to have a near perfect distribution of amino acids. With Whey Protein scores of 96% of nitrogen retained at +104 compared to a whole egg, it’s easy to see why Whey Protein is first choice!⠀
P.S if you’re bored with your regular shake, treat yourself with these deliciously healthy cookies made from @optimumnutrition Gold Standard Whey (it’s also on sale this month!)⠀
ALMOND & CHOCOLATE PROTEIN COOKIES⠀
- ¼ cup Gold Standard 100% Whey (chocolate)⠀
- 4 tbsp. almond butter (or peanut butter if you prefer!)⠀
- 2 tbsp. cocoa powder⠀
- ¼ cup almond milk⠀
- 2 tbsp. coconut flour⠀
1. Blend all the ingredients together. 2. Shape into six to eight ‘balls’ out of the mixture and place on a tray. 3. Flatten each one of these ‘balls’. 4. Bake at 350º for about 12-15 minutes or until the cookies feel ready when you press them with your fingers.⠀

It’s shaping up to be a beautiful weekend. Piper and I went driftwood hunting under pink skies and screaming eagles this morning. Now she’s tired so I can get on with my day working from home.

Hey babes, Angelisa here with Braap Babes. I uploaded my first video to my YouTube channel. This first video I talk about different profiles of seats for your snow machine. I am 5 feet zero inches and I need an extreme low profile seat to have quicker movement when jumping side to side. I will be coming out with more video on how to modify your sled to customize it to you. Please subscribe to my channel so you never miss out on a video. This is for you babes and any feedback will be very helpful! Thank you!
