I’m quick to tell you that it’s great to have a village of support but that you also need to be able to stand alone. Double-edged sword, I know. But there’s truth in it. While the village may be there to cheer you on and help you, sometimes it’s only at their convenience. Once a… Continue reading Sometimes… it does take a village!
I know, it’s hard. It’s a grind. It’s a hustle. It’s work. Day in and day out you gotta stick with it. Even when the progress slows. You can’t just throw in the towel. You gotta keep on keepin’ on.

…I decided to reclaim my health and boy has it been a journey. It’s been hard, it’s been easy, it’s been terribly inconvenient, it’s been sloppy, it’s been simple and it’s been complicated.

Y’all… guess what? I ran consistently. Well I jogged, I should say, which is better than a shuffle or whatever that movement is that is right below a shuffle is called. Because that is me on a daily. You can ask anyone at CrossFit Boom, that my run/jog is probably slower than a fast walker!… Continue reading Forging Ahead
So the 80 days is up. I submitted my after pictures and essay. And now I wait to see if I get the opportunity at $25K.
