The Samantha Sessions : A New Journey.

Well hello there! I've been reading up and searching so I think it's time I start my own blog-thingy

I got a little taste of Cross-Fit by stumbling upon a class at he gym. I didn't know what class was available that day and read the paper wrong and just really needed a workout and voila! Cross-Fit! And I've been hooked since. I met Erin, who is going to help me out with this journey I'm about to endure. She's awesome. You should meet her. Hah. Anywayss quick facts:

Height : 5' 0'' (tiny little mee )
Weight: 118-120 lbs.
Vegetarian
Runner (training in hopes of running the Philadelphia Half Marathon on 11/23/08)
Now addicted to cross-fit hah.

I'm more of a bubbly person who enjoys those simple things like hot baths. Meditation, long talks, good music. I'm a music major at the University of the Arts. I study voice. It's tough. Very long days. But I love it. One of my roommates is a body builder and opened my eyes to so many more fabulous nutritional/fitness information. Granted, I'd love to have a body builder/figure athlete's body... I want to be in shape. I'm an athletic girl. CF is loads of fun and the women in it are ridiculously bad ***. Hah. And frankly, I don't like supplementing with a million different pills. Vitamins and Flax Seed Oil is enough for me. Maybe Iron Pills at some point soon because I am a vegetarian. We'll see. But yeah. I like carbs and treating myself to dessert and going out to eat (which he never, ever does). I like enjoying myself rather than making crucial decisions when I pick up a fork. I'm pretty healthy, I don't need to take it so over board.
I live in Philadelphia so I walk and bike (especially) everywhere. I'm in my school's running club. I like to go and explore when I get the chance to but lately school has me so busy it's a little hard. I work at Cosi now so my Fridays and Saturdays are spent serving the happy, the cranky, and the drunk some late night snacks. But yeah. If it was up to me, I'd meditate, write a journal, and listen to acoustic music every night. But time is of the essence. And that's me.

*Squatting with weights. Uhh what was it called again? It hurt my wrist a lot. But I did it!
