I got bored with Jamie Eason’s live fit. After plenty of reddit research, I’ve settled on StrongLifts. It’s 5 lifts in two two workouts. You alternate. We’ll see how it goes. I’d post before and after pics, but i don’t think I want that much of my flesh published on the Internet. There are also […]

Uber is in Boise. There are finally enough drivers to make the service work. Hurrah! We are a city! I snagged my first Uber car the other night, it was a pleasant experience despite the guy driving five miles an hour under the speed limit. Its a sweet way to make some extra cash (unless […]

I was recently laid off. It sucks. First, I have never been laid off before. Second, I have been employed since I was 15 and I have always known what my next step is. So this is the first time in almost 15 years where I am kind of afloat. Guess what? Its scary. Scary […]

Teach your daughters to not apologize for asking questions. To quit hedging all of their statements with “I feel..” Quit describing your growing toddler as “huge”, “large”, or “big” call her strong instead. Teach your daughters to use power body language (Amy Cuddy TED Talk. The only TED talk worth watching).

From CL Young “I’ve never been one for finger-snapping slam poetry, but yesterday I walked into a house where a fifteen year old girl lives with her very nice family. on a couch visible from the kitchen counter of that house was an embroidered pillow that said “nothing tastes as good as skinny feels.” that girl wants to be a model someday. this video was in my inbox this morning & I think it puts the whole shit pretty adeptly.

I made it through the bar exam. I won’t have results for several weeks, but at least I took the damn thing, which feels like half the battle. So I made it through the two days without crying, without throwing up, without passing out (I thought I saw some tears day 1, no throwing up […]

Remember when your parents told you to always wear clean underwear? In case you got hit by a car or something (in that case, your undies probably wouldn’t be clean after the fact anyway/insurance pays out more if you soil yourself). Well, as it was early Sunday AM, I was cooking (for fathers day), in […]

Guh, Im already in panic mode where I feel that I’m not doing enough every day. At least I get to ride my bike to bar study, and then the office, and then back home. Its a nice 5 mile loop. Tomorrow I start TRX. I can’t wait. I’m still sore from kettlebells, despite drinking […]

I’ve had a bad knee for three years. I’ve been to several doctors, orthopedic specialists, osteopaths, and even a naturalist in case the joint effusion was caused by an allergic reaction or dietary issue. Anyway, FINALLY a diagnosis. I tore my meniscus. Probably when I was crossing U Street in DC to get a half […]
