Emotions. Drained.

Allstate offers a service for breaking up with your car insurance. I almost feel like I need them to break up with my gym. I'm switching to a different gym today, but still have to finish my personal training clients with my old gym. So I'll be working out at one and working at another. Sounds somewhat odd when I think about it, but I'm looking forward to making the switch. It really hasn't been that hard to discuss with the gym owner, but they asked for me not to tell people that I'm leaving. At first this didn't seem like a problem. But part of me is excited and loves talking about it, so it sucks not being able to share my excitement. So in the meantime, I post it here knowing that people from my gym don't read this blog, but people that can share my excitement or understand what a deal this is to me do. Acceptable compromise for now, even though I'd like to share the news with other people.

On a training note - I've bought a bicycle trainer. Bicycle Village had a tent sale this weekend, but no real deals on trainers. With any discount I could get at that store, had a cheaper offer with shipping included. I went for a long run on Saturday and finally learned to slow down my pace. Unfortunately, I think it ended up hurting my knees and surrounding musculature more than running faster. My form probably wasn't the greatest at the slower pace.

I'm looking for some good tri shorts to buy. Any recommendations are welcomed. Product reviews coming soon for warm weather gear!

Dear Natural Hair, Let Me Explain...

I posted the snap of me with my hair brushed out some weeks ago. I wanted my friends to see the difference a brush makes. All too often, they think my curly hair remains curly. Some people don’t understand why I look at them enviously as they brush their hair in the middle of the day. Sure, if I worked at a place where my brushed out hair was perceived as professional, maybe I could do that. However, my mid-day hair brushing friends and I work at the same place and I get to sit by and watch them deal with their tangles johnny on the spot. I. I have to wait until I get home and can tame the beast of tangles by creating an entirely different beast. Such is my hair.
I’ve learned to love my hair.  After years of trying to hide the curls with relaxers, fancy products, and buns – I have learned. Yes, I’m jealous of people who can ride in a car with the windows down and do nothing more than brush out the wildness. I still get angry when I brake a brush or pull bristles. That does not get in…

Look Better, Feel Better Week 7

Dream Planning Realization #1

For quite some time, I could tell my life has been slipping away from me. Not in that dying sort of way, at least not physically. However, I have sunken more into my work in the name of having a better life and all I have to show for it is - more work. Not exactly the way I thought I'd be digging myself out of the work hole. It isn't that I view my work as a hole and am unhappy with it. I love my jobs. I do. And that's part of the problem. They give me a means to meet other needs, while still being pretty darn likable. So I don't realize when I need to pull back to focus on the other things in my life. You know about the other things - friends, family, health, wellness. Things. Example - I work to earn money so I can take my family on trips to neat places. I have worked. I have made money. We haven't gone anywhere. For the past few years, my brother has been living in different places and it wasn't until recently that we ventured out his way for a visit. We m…
