Book Report: Lean In Chapter 2

Sit at the Table  This was a great chapter about speaking up, standing up and leaning in. Women often feeling not worthy of praise, opportunities or recognition because in the back of their mind’s they could have done better, someone else could have done it better or they were only doing their job. Sherly calls this the Impostor Syndrome, I call it mental trash. That voice that says you can't do something or you aren't worthy?...more

My Attempt at the Military Diet to Drop 10 lbs in 3 Days

We leave for vacation in 4 days. About 4 months ago I had made it a plan to drop weight and lean up before vacation. Fast forward 3 months and 1 week and I just haven't gotten around to it. I did start working out more regularly by signing up for crossfit, which is a whole other story, but I still am carrying the same spare tire I had a few months ago. Although my husband said I do look thinner. Anyway, in a last ditch attempt to lose a quick 10 before vacation I am going to attempt the military diet. ...more

Lean In Review: Chapter One

has certainly been a while since I have done a book report, but I enjoy reading business books as much as I do for pleasure. My latest page turner is the controversial book "Lean In" by Sheryl Sandberg.I came to learn about this book via twitter during a tweetchat I happened to come across while following the hashtag #workingmoms. I did a little research and $12.99 purchased the book on my ipad. I am just beginning the book and hope to break it out into chunks as I finish a few chapters. Here are my thoughts and takes from this first chapter.Chapter 1 Here is my point of view for reference. I am a working mom. I have had a job since I was 13 years old. I now work full-time, am married and have two wild boys. I am the bread winner and career focused person in our marriage and thankfully my husband is a Type-A, OCD cleaner and keeps the house in order. I have to say the "role reversal" has been tough on our marriage. Maybe because I have a preconceived notion based on the way that I grew up that the wife took care of the kids and home and the dad worked full-time. But, I am a competitive, go-getter with my eye on the sky. So this chapter really made sense to me....more
