How do you improve your skills and grow as a (insert your career, sport, hobby, personal ambition)? One thing people recommend is to hang around people who have the skills you want. I know, I know: It’s easier said than done. First you have to find those people, and then, you have to feel comfortable […]
I’m so excited. I’ve made it my mission to work on pullups and double unders. Whenever I can, I pull out my speed rope or whatever rope I can find and I practice. Tonight I practiced in the driveway while Andy had the sprinkler out, watering the lawn (It’s our watering day). The sprinkler would […]

We’re back to the usual morning hustle and bustle here at my house, but — oh my! — the Thanksgiving holiday was so nice! Taking our time to cook breakfast, sitting down to leisurely meals, feasting on turkey, toasting with friends — so nice. But all was not ideal in Brummerland — Andy came down […]
I’ve been eating so clean lately, I decided to celebrate… by not eating clean? Yep, I indulged Thursday night, and I’m PAYING for it. Forget the headache the morning after… that was cake. Today I’m dealing with PERFORMANCE issues. Here’s what I took on today (two days after imbibing and eating grains): 4 rounds 12 […]
