I gots another pair of underarmour socks. For those of you that know me and my worksallthetimefilipina mother, you know I give shits about socks. They're pretty important. LOVE THEM! The verdict on UA socks - awesome. The heat gear socks (both liner and cushion) are awesome. Don't expect the cushion to provide a lot of soft feel, but just enough to help you ease into a lightweight trainer/race shoe. The liner is awesome when you want a lot of road feel. Both those socks retain their elasticity for the long haul. I've used and abused them in Qatar and still abuse them in Colorado to this day. I will get rid of these socks due to bleach having no effect on the dirty bottoms they get from me walking around in them during Crossfit before I get rid of them for wear and tear. The cushier kind I also have is not on the website but I find in plenty of stores. They are great for colder weather. They are thick all around, but don't provide the fit and tightness of the other heat gear socks. These are great for cold days, light running workouts, or general strength and conditioning workouts. There. That's me and my sock fetish. Also, I am ordering some knee high compression socks, just trying to figure out if I want Zoots or CEPs as both are slightly over $50 a  pair, not a decision to be thrown to the wind.

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…

I'm Still Alive

Really. I am. Go figure the moment I have time to write something is the moment it all leaves me. I've been keeping a notebook to write things down throughout the day. It's done wonders for my shopping lists, my "to Google later" list, and my WTF Why Not list. Totally forgot about the blogging though. In the mean time, let me tell you that I'm still me. I've spent more time working than working out and I'm fighting to find my way through it all. I'll let you know how it goes. So far, I've identified my shortcomings: the office candy dish, lack of better options, not going to bed earlier, and straying off tasks. Stay tuned for what the hell I do to find myself back to my sane spot...

Beauty of things

I will miss Michelle Obama. She was classy and beautiful despite what the Facebook trolls would have you believe. She was an accomplished woman with a legal career before she stepped foot in the White House. She could be formal and she could dance the Dougie. She sang Carpool Karaoke and she spoke eloquently during official functions. She cared about the health of the youth of this nation. I was touched by how grounded she was and inspired by her achievements as a person, wife, and mother. I expected to read nasty comments by Facebook trolls, but I wasn’t ready to personally experience hearing negativity about her. The blatant comparison of her to a primate was ridiculous. Absolutely, ridiculous. If there is any animal to compare her to, it is a unicorn. While that comparison was as in-your-face as it could be, others were not. Beauty/class has returned to the White House. I heard that a few times. You can veil your disrespect as much as you like, but it’s quite easy to pull that on…
