FEEL AGAIN

For my whole life, as long as I can remember, in the entire history of “Michelle Does Exercise,” I’ve been drawn to heat. Fire. Intensity. Sweat. If I ran, I ran as fast and as far and as often as I could. I’d run a 5k, fly somewhere and run four legs of a 200 mile … Continue reading FEEL AGAIN

ME, MYSELF, AND I

Tuesday, 9:15 pm., January of the New Year. Me: Various sighs, groans, furrowed brows and a giant flop on the couch. My husband: raised eyebrow, turn of the head, “what’s up babe? What’s coming up for you?” Me: glare. Then a loud, overstated, “IT’S AFTER 9PM, I’VE BEEN UP SINCE 6 AND IT’S THE FIRST … Continue reading ME, MYSELF, AND I

SOMETIMES I LISTEN

So, I’ve been going along here, full speed ahead. 13-15 hour work days almost seven days a week. Getting my shit done. Saying “yes” to everything. Saying “no” to very, very, very little. It’s been awesome. Amazing. Fan.Fucking.Tastic. Things like this have happened: My yoga classes are growing, some even doubling in size. My writing … Continue reading SOMETIMES I LISTEN

A GREAT BIG WORLD

“Mountains and forests and squirrels oh my!” I just returned from a four day “yogation” in Yosemite National Forest with a group of ladies who, upon our early morning departure Thursday, other than one yoga pal I met in March were people upon who I had never before laid eyes, but by Sunday evening were … Continue reading A GREAT BIG WORLD

PIMP MY STRIDE

Yesterday I ran the Bay to Breakers race in San Francisco, in a tutu, tired as hell, but happier than happy to be surrounded by over 40,000 fellow endorphin junkies (liberal interpretation suggested. . .). I decided, against better advice, to actually run the event, just this once, just so I could have that experience. … Continue reading PIMP MY STRIDE

LEARNING TO FLY (SOLO)

Oh holy day. Oh, holy, holy day. Let me just say, ahem, I sure do I know how to bring in the Holy day with the Spirit, in uh, all sense of the word. Confused? Let me rationalize explain. Easter is a consecration of rebirth,  which is like commemorating life, which is like like. . … Continue reading LEARNING TO FLY (SOLO)

SURVIVAL (OF THE FITTEST)

Can I get a "woot woot?" How 'bout an "A......Men?" A fist bump? Yikes. Tough crowd. Well, in any case, I'm doing a happy dance. A happy, happy, happy dance, because . . . I'm getting that much closer to accomplishing several of my 35x35 list items.  Like about eight(ish), actually, including sincere progress toward my goals … Continue reading SURVIVAL (OF THE FITTEST)

I LIKE THE WAY YOU WORK IT

I am starting to realize there are people who work, and people who work OUT. Apparently, I am increasingly becoming one of the latter. Oops. Note to self- find a way for exercise to pay the bills, like soon. Given my flexible(ish) schedule, I am able to devote an average of about two hours a … Continue reading I LIKE THE WAY YOU WORK IT
