Reprogramming Adults: A How-To Guide
After years of searching for how to help people to become the best version of themselves, finally I have the answers. And it's both easier and harder than you may think.
Ride to Raise Awareness
If you hadn’t heard yet that one in two people will get cancer in their lifetime, I apologise for being the one to deliver the news. That’s 50% of the population. But how many of us think it won’t happen to me?
What, Me Volunteer?
😜 I've been told that there are 135 good reasons to give blood, but for the life of me, when the tech approached me with that big-bore, suck-your-liver-out needle, humming the Flight of the Valkyrie, I couldn't think of a single one.
- Second Place in Social Shock Challenge
Please be patient, I have autism
I often hurt people unexpectedly and unintentionally. I was diagnosed with Pervasive Developmental Disorder - Not Otherwise specified (PDD-NOS) back in my mid-twenties. I was completing my last semester of my undergraduate studies at the time. Back then, PDD-NOS was its own thing, something I had never heard of until my therapist mentioned it to me.
My Rules for Becoming a Healthier Perfectionist
At the beginning of this year, I attempted to complete yet another Blogilates Pilates fitness challenge. Up until this point, I had started too many challenges to remember, and completed none.
Could a Plant-Based Diet Help You Live a Longer Life?
Could following a plant-based diet help you live a longer life? There’s no denying that plant-forward diets are becoming increasingly popular in the US and across the world. But if you’re a health-conscious individual who hasn’t made the switch yet, you may be wondering if it’s worth the effort.
Living without vision
have you ever wondered what it would be like to live your life in total darkness? Imagine having a blindfold permanently tied to your face, covering your eyes, and preventing you from seeing anything. That is how I live my life, except my eyes aren’t covered by a blindfold. I was born prematurely, and I would like to share my story with you. I truly hope that it will inspire people all around the world. It’s meant to motivate you to live your life while you can. You only have one life to live, so live it the best way you know how. Keep in mind that blindness has its ups and downs just like everything else in life.

Fitness Journey of a Gay Nerd Entry 4
Wowwie what a day! It was my day of today and I may or may not have taken advantage of that and slept in until 2 PM. It was well needed as I was extremely sore after yesterday's work out and despite the nightmares I had of my ex, I still kind of enjoyed seeing him. I'm kind of a masochist I guess and should have just woke up and gotten my day started because as great as it was to hear his voice as I remembered it, it was a nightmare and I didn't really care for what I saw. But oh well, ya live and ya learn and you move on with your day! A bit of bad news came my way when I saw that the tickets I had purchased to see two of my favorite drag queens, Trixie and Katya, who you can learn more about in my Self-Discovery series here, were refunded to my account due to Covid cancellations. Unfortunately, it was just for store credit so I have about $375 in Ticketsonsale credit I can't use because whatever show I plan on going to will likely be canceled, again, oh well.

Everything's Better Upside Down
I was forty-four but felt eighty. No energy. No joy. No hope. My joints ached like I was an octogenarian. (No offense to you hale and healthy octogenarians.) My back hurt. My hips hurt. My Achilles tendon hurt. But I hadn’t injured them. Some people will say that I was just getting old. It happens to the best of us.
Strengthening my Core
Breathe. Breathe deeply. Breathe consciously. Breathe with with your whole being. Breath is life. It sustains us. Breath work has long been associated with regulating the nervous system for thousands of years. Yoga is one method. It is an ancient Indian system designed for physical, mental and spiritual well-being. In the west, we normally associate yoga with the physical aspects and see images of a flexible body contorting into all sorts of pretzel-like shapes when we hear the word. This was my introduction to it as well.
Science - This Cheap Nutrient Fights Viruses
It is rare in life when something so simple has a profound effect on our lives, our health and wellbeing. When clinical trials and scientific studies and meta — analyses of multiple studies back up the efficacy of this nutrient it’s time to get excited, I know I am.
Round and Round Til it Falls Down
I am another someone who bursts with intense enthusiasm, and can get swept away in matching the energy of the chaotic do’s and have to’s of daily living. I have grown accustomed to over-extending that energy, either working harder than I have to, or giving to others without realizing my tank is empty. I realize that it comes from the conditioning that we are all unlearning as we find our ways existing in an internet driven capitalistic society, with various identities that come with more strenuous or more privileged socioeconomic stature. With a silly and forgiving awareness to this as I unlearn and balance, I am often looking forward to the time that I create more space for myself in my daily meditations of the mornings and evenings. This is where I initially thought to release those dense layers of hyperactive energy at my belly center that unconsciously sends me into that busy effort and resistance. I have such a frenzied mid-center, however, that sitting down for meditation brings up a lot of squirmy energy that I get stuck on. It made meditating quite invalidating for me, thinking that perhaps I am simply not the sprit that is meant for stillness. I almost caved in to identifying with that revved up energy as a part of me until I stumbled in to the most adorable pre-meditation practice to help blow some matcha powered steam out of my solar plexus.
Zen and Inner Peace
The world has been turned upside down within the past two years or so. A global pandemic has affected everyone's lives in some way, shape, or form. Thankfully, in the midst of it all, I graduated college and started graduate school. In addition, I watched my family moved across the country, moved into my first apartment, started a new job, and learned many new skills. I am currently in a graduate program towards a degree in Athletic Training. Fueled by a passion for exercise and a desire to help others, athletic training seems to be a great fit for me.
I Thread the Needle as the Needle Threads me
My head throbbed relentlessly as I plopped down into my soft, plump reclining chair after a long day of painstakingly grueling tedious hard work.
