Here for the long game

Here I am. Sweaty face. Hair in last night's braids. Headband with paint from who-knows-what project. Fresh off my morning run. I want to share with you my current mantra, because it is slowly but surely changing how I am growing. "I am in this for the long game." Let that sit for a second.... Continue Reading →

The fall

That lower-case 'f' is on purpose. We're not talking a season here, we're talking an experience. A not-awesome experience. On a quick decision, I signed up for a half marathon next July. Awesome. No problem. I'm out of shape, but this is something I've done before, so it feels like a doable goal, something to... Continue Reading →

Saturday morning

Monday through Friday, I hustle. I #Werk. I roll myself out of bed before the rest of my people, dress like the #BossLady that I am, and walk my high-heeled self out the door to hit the office. And once I'm there, it's nonstop. Email. Phone calls. Meetings. Instant Messages. Text Messages. Conference calls. GoToMeetings.... Continue Reading →

The List

I don't know about you, but I'm in a season of life right now that is WORK. Work at work, work at schoolwork, work at schedule, WORK. And some days take all the guts I've got in me. Today was super-full, and capped off with hosting the office Christmas party, and for this high-functioning introvert,... Continue Reading →

Physical Health: Kick out Sugar

I'm not going to start with a 100 squat challenge or a mile-a-day run. You're welcome. The central point of this whole series is incremental, sustainable change. So we'll start with something a little closer to home, a little easier to swallow, a simpler change. We need less sugar in our lives, y'all. I was... Continue Reading →
