more cute things Rachel is saying now

5. "Hi Mook." (translation: "Hi Milk." She says this nearly every time we sit down to nurse.)
4. "Caw Aaty Co-ty." (translation: "Call Aunty Courtenay." She's in love with her Aunty Courtenay.)
3. "In ying." (translation: "In sling." Rachel love to hang out with Mamma.)
2. "Hab tea on Pooh yap." (translation: "Have tea on Pooh's lap." Rachel's new favorite thing to do is have a teddy bear tea party and she takes turns sitting on all the bears' laps.)
1. "Good yiwky on Bobby." (translation: "Good silky on Bobby." Daddy always tells Rachel "There's still some good silky left on this [blanket]" and rubs the silky edge on her cheeks.)

Want to be Motivated?

How about being able to Clean and Jerk your body weight 30 times?

At the ripe old age of 14 years old, Kallista Pappas (103#) shows what it means to be (have, exude..hard to describe) what Kohashi sensei would have called “senshin”.  Sensei described it to me by flooring me with a jo because I was loosing focus and messing with my grip instead of finishing a kata.  I’ll describe it to you by presenting the video above (taken at the 2008 CrossFit Games).

Pay attention to the girl in blue in the background of the opening shot.  She actually falls hard on the press and takes the bar on her shins…gets back up and finishes her last 7.  She finishes despite the pain, not losing focus, and giving everything she has to complete her task.  Senshin.

I know that I’m not tough, but now I know just how not tough I am.
