How to Make Your Own Fitness Challenge

I love following this blog! If you need something challenging or fresh for your summer workouts (or life) read this and then go follow the blog!

Finding delight.

Today marks DAY 5 of my 10-Day Ballet Challenge and I’m LOVING it! Ballet is exercise that I enjoy, and although it’s a work-out it doesn’t feel like work in the same way that some exercise does.

Of course we didn’t. Because there are men in this country who can navigate a roundabout with their head completely stuck outside the window of the food service delivery truck they’re driving, face turned 90 degrees away from the road they should be watching, all to make disgusting, slurpy kiss noises at a 31 year old woman (Read: me) carrying a library book about the Holocaust and sporting a 3-days-since-last-washed top knot.

Of course.

The catcalling in Miami is pretty brutal. You’re probably not all that surprised by this. I can’t say I was either. But the salt on the wound is that it sucks ass to drive anywhere in this city. If two of my stops are a few blocks apart, I’ll often leave my car at…

Two days before my husband, my father, and I were set to hit the road to Port St. Lucie, Florida for a week long, overdue, and much deserved vacation, I walked through the front door after getting home from work to find Jeff sitting in the recliner listening to Motown music and cooking dinner.  It … Continue reading How Taking My Grandma to Florida Humbled Me.
