I used to think this about running too. I'd see "running is my therapy" somewhere and think, "Yep, it's mine too." But then the other day I was feeling down. I was sad, sluggish, unmotivated. I knew that going for a run would make me feel better, ...more
Winter in Houston has said its final goodbyes. The temperatures this week will reach the mid 70s and low 80s (blegh) and even my 5 AM bootcamps have been a humid, muggy mess.

A few weeks back, my boyfriend and I were enjoying another arousing sex session. He was giving it to me hard and I was really enjoying it. We recently moved into an apartment together, so there was no one around to walk in on our sesh. So, after we were both pleasured, he pulled out. To our surprise, his condom was not attached to his penis! We thought we were going absolutely nuts and both searched high and low for that condom, but it was nowhere to be found.
The irony: In order to go to the White House for the "Champions of Change for Working Families" event today, I had to do some fancy scheduling with my husband. It happened smack at the hour of school pick-up.
"So if you go to work early, you can swing by and pick up the kids after school and bring them back to your office. And then I can drive out and grab them from your office and then go home to get our science fair stuff. And then if you make sandwiches and leave them on the counter, I can toss those to the kids..."

Shelly The fourth week of the 2015 CrossFit Open brought an ascending ladder of handstand push-ups and power cleans. Frankly, after 15.3 I was pleased with any combination of movements so long as muscle-ups were not involved. As a former Rhythmic Gymnast, I couldn’t have been happier that The CrossFit Games introduced handstand push-ups in the Open for the very first time ....more

Way back when I first started blogging, I remember coming across Angela of Oh She Glows who at the time was also a runner and frequently shared her day of eats and workouts… Clearly she has vanished in the following 7 years and none of you even know who she is.

There is this little urge inside us to envy what we don’t have or we think we don’t have. We believe that if we have what others have, we look similar to a bunch of other people or act in the same way, then we are doing it right.It is common to want to be common. If many other people in the health community are having oatmeal for breakfast then that becomes a common breakfast. If these same amount of people enjoy doing circuit training at the gym then that becomes a common workout....more
