Sorry recovery, you can suck it...again

I went running out with the TnT "gang" today. First off, I'm tired. My sleep has been off, waking up although I'm still sleepy :( I have been doing a lot of my workouts early in the morning, so my body may just be trying to adapt to a different schedule. Of course, I still do my evening crossfits and jiu jitsu. So yes - tired. We had a farewell party for a gym coach yesterday. I might have over indulged in some food. So I woke up with less than perfect sleep and a gut hangover. Recovery - f* yo' face. I threw caution to the wind as I jumped into my Zoot compression socks (ok, maybe jump isn't the word), got my trusty Directional Fuel Belt waterbottle, and went to go for an hour run with the team. It was the typical first ten minutes of "why am I doing this crap," followed by easing into my stride. It ended on a good note.

My Garmin has bit the dust. Now I have no idea to tell how much I've run or biked distance wise. Back to square one of pondering a new gps watch. I looked at my options. I don't want too many pieces of things to forget, so the one piecers are a good idea. They just cost an arm and leg.

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…
