If you HAD to choose, which would you pick? 200 WBs or 200 Burpees?

For the sake of transparency the WBs are 20/14# to 10’ target and burpees are to a 6’ target.

Since one coworker responded with “I pick WB with tennis balls” and the other said “I pick WB with a 8# ball”. Smh.

"Are you guys woding today?? "

Ha. I love when people ask us that. 

SWOD
3RM T&G Power Cleans: 95#, 125#, 135#, 145#.

I wanted to do 155# and then attempt 165# but I ran out of time. 

WOD:
Goal was 6 rounds. 

I did 4 rounds + 30 seconds plank. 

Rounds 1 & 2 were at 95#. 3 &  4 were 115# and round 5 was 125#. All power clean and power jerks. 

Strength, cardio and core all in one! What’s not to love?

When you give the staff a simple task and the still mess it up

howshouldweaccountforme:

Ugh. Sad, but true. I have asked for 9 digit FEINs and have been given a 10 digit alphanumeric. Then, they said “just remove a number”.

What?????? How does that even make sense???

So guess who will be competing with me in 5 weeks in the same weight class???

Lauren Fisher.

9th in the 2014 CrossFit Games.

USAW Junior National Champion at 63kg.

I know I won’t beat her, but that is motivation to work my butt off the next 5 weeks. I mean, I would have done that anyways. But this is a second layer. When I don’t want to get out of bed or when I need a push to work harder.

I never understood why asking about salary during a job interview is frowned upon.

I was taking to Mr and giving him some job interviews tips from my experience and I asked why most places say not to ask about salary during the interview.

He said “because it makes you seem all about the money.”

Ummm, yeah. That’s the whole point of *most jobs. To make money.

I think that information should be presented in the beginning because most people have a minimum salary requirements. Why bother going to the interview if they are offering less than you want? So you can counter? If you can counter, why are they low balling in the first place?

What if you go to an interview and love the job, but the commute is far. You can’t make an informed decision on your end if you would even accept an offer. Rather you have to wait for the offer and then decide.

I guess I just like knowing too much upfront. Rather than getting bits and pieces. I don’t like occupying my mind with bits and pieces. Lay it on the table, let me decide and then we can move on.

I’ve been at my job 2 years in July.

There has been no mention of a performance review or salary negotiations.

Last year I had to ask, read counter, the salary “recommended” and had an informal review. I never got an official review.

I’d rather not go through that again, however I think I am an awesome employee and my salary should reflect that.

I’m torn between saying nothing and ultimately sticking with my same salary for another year (budget is done in December) or having that awkward conversation with my boss.

It’s annoying to think I must ask for a performance review and negotiate my salary. So annoying that I contemplate not doing because honestly more salary doesn’t equate, to me, to more work. I’m overworked and underpaid and just want my salary to match my job. Is that so much to ask?

I then think, why bother ask since I plan to start school? If that happens, I’ll probably switch to part time or quit altogether. No need for a salary increase.

But then I think, what if I don’t get into a school? What then???

Being an adult sometimes sucks.

Delicious! 

Egg, bacon, chicken, turkey with avocado. 

I asked for the dressing on the side, but he accidentally mixed it in. Ah well. Still yum!
