    Estas son las mañanitas, que cantaba el Rey David,
    Hoy por ser día de tu santo, te las cantamos a ti,
    Despierta, mi bien*, despierta, mira que ya amaneció,
    Ya los pajarillos cantan, la luna ya se metió.

    Que linda está la mañana en que vengo a saludarte,
    Venimos todos con gusto y placer a felicitarte,
    Ya viene amaneciendo, ya la luz del día nos dio,
    Levántate de mañana, mira que ya amaneció.

    Happy Birthday Juanita!!! Que Dios te bendiga y te de tu deseo(s)!

    You go girl, with your Carlos Santana Boots! 😉

    Congratulations to Juanita! What a fantastic job you have done, and it demonstrates clearly how CrossFit is HEALTH CARE. You have every right to be very proud of what you’ve accomplished. Keep up the good work.

    Dear Greg, Gio and all members of bulldog crossfit,

    When I began this journey at bulldogcrossfit- I was looking for an exercise program that I could stick to and obviously weight loss. What I found there was so much more- I found the support of great coaches that pushed me to limits that I never thought I could reach physically nor mentally, an inspirational community who shed sweat and blood with me and I found the true goal in my journey- health and fitness !

    I can’t even begin to express in how many ways bulldog crossfit has given me my life back ! It has been a wonderful journey and I know that it can only get better from here:)) I am a stronger individual physically and mentally and now I strive to help others reach their goals !

    Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes, the support, the love (aka as the blood and the tears) and for being such a great suppportive community ! You guys rock !

    PS. Sorry everyone for those box jumps:))

    I am continuously amazed that someone can be so consistently happy at 5:45am. If I weren’t still trying to figure out how someone can remain so positive in the face of so many god-awful burpees and box jumps, I don’t think I would be there as frequently as I am. Congrats, and happy birthday!

    I LOVE BOX JUMPS! Especially when we’re doing it in Juanita’s Honor. She is a ray of sunshine everytime I happen to see 5:45am 🙂 i love the morning crew and their boundless energy.

    Although I’m not nearly as consistent as our birthday girl, she’s an example of how quickly you can work miracles when you work hard and have a great attitude. Crossfit Girls ROCK! Who wants Juanita’s t-shirt? Better put in your order now, her tribe of followers is growing. Love you Juanita, Have a great birthday.

  6. Gio

    Quick, someone email Rosie and tell her that there is a waiting list of people who want a one of a kind Juanita Loves CrossFit t-shirts!

  7. Rosy

    Happy Birthday Juanis! Love the shirt !!! All of the family is so proud of you! You have done an amazing job, and this transformation has shaped you in many ways. You have inspired many including myself by introducing me to the program. Keep up the great job, you are only a few days shy of completing the 90 day no sugar program, have a small sweet treat for your 36th birthday. No matter what, keep shaking your Shakira hips while you do your crossfit moves! LOL

    Juanita! Like everyone else has mentioned, you really are a ray of sunshine early in the morning, and I mean EVERY time I see you! If it weren’t for you and everyone else’s motivation and high energy at 0545 in the morning, I wouldn’t be trying as hard as I do now to show up at that time, just to get the privilege to work out with you! And you mention you now strive to help others reach their goals…well you did just that today, I did box jumps! Did not think I was going to conquer them today! Thanks for holding hands with me hahahahahaha your the best! Keep up the hard work!
    Much Love for everyone I workout with in the morning! And yes even the hard working coaches that I may utter I hate you, every now and then while doing a WOD lol

  9. Gio

    Look out! Rosy’s on the case and you guys are in for it. Glue guns ready!
    @ Jes: No worries. I can take it, *sniff *sniff. I’m a big *sniff, boy now.

    You’re mean. ;*) I like that.

  10. Greg

    Jess, If you don’t hate us once in a while we’re not doing our jobs. Keep up the great work. Way to go on those box jumps!

  11. Celeste

    dear Juanis,
    I love your results they’re amazing. I cant believe you are persistant on the no sugar diet, I can never do that. You go!!.

    love celeste

  12. Brett

    Juanita –

    As your teammate and sometimes morning comrade – I’m so proud of what you have accomplished in the past year! Your ongoing enthusiasm and sunshine in the morning is always inspiring – keep it up!

    Happy Birthday, and way to go knocking out those box jumps!


  13. Juanita

    Hey everyone !

    I feel extremely flattered with all the comments from all of you- thanks from the bottom of my heart ! These comments are going to make me work harder than ever as I strive to push it to the next level and conquer " christine" under 15 mins! That’s my next goal anyway:))

    @ Naveed- you will get those box jumps. If I can do it- you can do it !

    @ Laura- you know that you are my workout buddy and love working out with you and your great energy.

    @ Christian- I am sure that we will suffer many more a morning with those burpees- I know love hate relationship:))

    @ Jessica- anytime I can help you- I will be there buddy ! Great job on those box jumps ! Si se puede!

    @ Doc Rooks- thank you ! You are inspirational and thanks for bringing Brett into the gym- even though Brett at the time thought he had joined Curves – LOL !

    @ El Mariachi- thanks for the push, the sweat and the tears ! I could have never done this without you coach !

    @ Rosy- thanks sis ! You know I think that you might have a side business with crossfit shirts. I’ll get the requests in. I think Tony’s should also be hot pink with a heart :))

    @ Celeste- I will always be here for you ! And if I could do the no sugar- you can do it too ! Perseverance is innate in the Mora girls :))

    Thanks everyone.

    Sorry I am so late in posting a comment but I finally got a chance to write something. First of all, I am so proud of you, I can’t believe that was you a year ago, you have transformed into a new person. Thank you so much for always motivating me in the work outs… sorry if sometimes I am not as motivating but that’s only because I am always half asleep at the 5:45 class (right Gio). But anyways keep up the great work and keep on achieving your goals cause your kicking ass LOL!! Love ya!!

  15. Jillian

    I may not be a part of the 545a crew but I’m your steady Sat friend who is super proud of you! Your constant positive attitude is so inspirational and it’s a pleasure to be called one of your BDCF friends! I’m in awe of your dedication to your sugar diet and the results that it has given you along with your extreme hard work at CF. Have the happiest of birthday’s this weekend and celebrate in style!

  16. Juanita

    I promise that this is the last post from the social butterfly for today!

    @Lupi – thanks sis! We have suffered and triumphed together over the last year! Here is to many more cross-fitting years together!

    @Greg – thanks for the constant encouragement and push. ‘You were the force and wind beneath my wings on those box jumps! I’ll never forget that Saturday when you patiently waited and sat with my nieces encouraging me to jump that box and that day was my first real box jump! Thanks!

    Hi Juanita!

    Just had to check you out again on your Bulldog Crossfit website. I’ve seen pictures of you from time to time of your Crossfit sessions–from box jumps, rows, and the pictures on today’s post. Great to hear you’re still such a ray of sunshine so early in the morning and inspiring everyone at your gym. I still remember you being so chipper at 5am every morning when we were roommates in college and all I wanted to do was to go back to sleep. You look and are fabulous. We need to do some Crossfit WODs together! Happy birthday and I hope you have a great day tomorrow!


  18. Marissa

    Juanita- I’m late to chime in but I couldn’t agree more with all the comments. You rock and are a true inspiration! You are the best Crossfit ambassador, thank you for always being so welcoming and such a great motivator. Happy Birthday and I agree with Rosy you deserve a little birthday treat enjoy your day.
