making it work

At work. Sitting. SITTING! But I'm not just sitting. I have my trust la cross ball in hand. Well, it is not really in my hand. It is under my leg. That's right, I'm going through and "ungluing" painful parts of my hamstrings and glutes. The chair I'm sitting on does has some give, but it'll do in this situation. Yesterday, I hit the Crossfit Soco WOD in the morning and did my games prep workout in the evening. Great stuff.

Today I rest...sort of. Today I work on hitting the tightness in the legs and back. Why? I want to free my muscles of counterproductive tension. Tension that limits my functional ROM does not help me with technique, strength, or even general fitness. So manual therapy it is. Multitask if you have to sit. My goal is to work the tension away with a hard ball (baseball, softball, la cross ball, etc.) so that I can play better tomorrow.

Today, I'm also going to order some supplements in powder form. I hope to mix these in with foods or drinks. I'm tired of taking pills, I don't get into sunlight enough, and I'm still working on my diet. Once all these things are straightened out, I'll consider ditching the supps. I'll let you know if I have better success with the powder compared to the pills.

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…
