The Metamorphosis 

Well well well, I have begun a new workout program. I know, no surprise there. It’s the Metamorphosis by Tracy Anderson, specifically the omnicentric program. For those of you who don’t know, that means when you gain weight you do it all over and get round like a ball. I often lovingly refer to myself as Short Round, like the Indiana Jones sidekick. 

I have been so tired of doing these workout programs created by men, and figured one created by a woman would be more considerate of how I move. How I move means when I do these programs I’m not flying around like a maniac with my boobs trying to run in the opposite direction.

So fast forward and I completed the first week, it seems to be low impact but definitely challenging which was exactly what I was looking for. Also one of the nice features of the program is that I can opt not to listen to the background music and I can just opt to hear her voice. The terrible techno music played during all workout videos kill me and I usually mute them and then at some point fall out of sync. 

Also, I’m super proud of myself because this is my longest workout streak in 7 months due to some of life’s complications, but anyways-yay me!

I’ll post an update on how it’s going in a few weeks.

The Need for Greatness

I often wish I could just be content with what I have, but like many I strive to be the best, and to have the best. I do this in ALMOST all aspects of my life. 

One main area that I seem to focus on is my career. I can’t just be happy doing the same thing for years. I have to conquer it, I work hard to make sure my work is perfect. Once I complete that I look to what’s next, what’s the next project I can ask for, what’s the next challenge I can face, what’s the next position I can hold. 

I was recently listening to a debate on whether it was better to stay at a job a super long time, or to bounce once it’s run its course. People always seem to gravitate towards the familiar, but when you push yourself great things can come from it! But of course on the other hand… there are many risks. 

Maybe once I grow up I’ll settle down and just be happy doing the same thing for years on end, but now, I want a challenge and to be mentally stimulated.

When Life Hands You Lemons…

Hey. Clearly if you are a reader of this blog you know, we’ve been on a hiatus. Life has been throwing lemons at us…not in a cute way either. It’s been like being attacked with a lemon bomb. 

But here I am writing this. I woke up this morning (12:30pm) and then my sister facetimed me. She mentioned someone asked her about the blog and asked what happened. I feel we have talked about sooo much and we have come so far, so here we are now- life is getting a bit tough and we shy away and hide in our caves.  That’s bullshit. Y’all deserve better, so we’re gonna be better.

We’re back. 

Get ready.

It’s about to get real.
