Take A Day - May is Mental Health Awareness Month and has been observed in the United States since 1949. I never put much thought or effort into Mental Health until February of this year (2018) when a severe panic attack (that I thought was a stroke), in a public space, landed me slumped over the trunk of a …
Getting Out of the Box - This post was really difficult for me to share. I sat on it for almost a week. It’s amazing how comfortable we allow ourselves to become within labels.

The Good, the Bad, the Ugly, and a Schwinn! - Thursday, April 13th I enjoyed the mobility workout so much from the week before, that I decided to start my workout week on Thursday to get in a good stretch before throwing any weight around.  As expected, Thursday didn’t disappoint.
