Shame and Camel Toe

The Love Your Petals Project - The beauty of the Vulva Yes. That's a vagina poster. Probably not something you would be willing to frame and showcase under gallery lighting in your home, but it has an irreverent beauty to it. Don't you think?   Speaking of vaginal beauty, I know this little bit of advice might come across as slightly unothodox and a little unfavorable to most women, but I'm just going to put this out there:   Ladies... embrace the camel toe.   It happens. Especially while running or at the gym. Everybody knows it happens. It happens to all of us at some point and for me it happens almost all the time – even in the most comfiest of gymwear.  Even hot athletes suffer camel toe. If you're in the middle of a circuit that includes running or anything like mountain climbers, groiners, jumping jacks, box step-ups, lunges, squats or basically any movement that requires you to separate your legs I guarantee that at some point you will feel an

Getting Ready for The Ranch

Chocolate covered women. Need I say more? So it seems my cooking compulsion is over. I think the Netflix marathon of "Freaky Eaters" is what killed it, but it's left me with this urge to dunk my naked body in a pool of cornstarch and water . Is that wrong? Seriously. That's one thing I need to do before I die. But if I can't do that maybe I would settle for chocolate. Yeah. I think I could do that. So I was able to get a lunch run in with my old trail running group last week which is now my new trail running group because I think I'm now completely BACK! And with extra fiyah to boot! I'm running faster, and stronger now and can totally keep up. I use to be a back of the packer, but I'm edging my way to the front now. It sure feels good to run with people again. And pretty soon I will be training in a gym with people too. Ok. So I train in a gym with people now, but I don't know most of the people there and I generally don't talk to th

My Domestic Compulsion

Domestic slave for hire. I work for wine. I've been a bit of a domestic goddess lately. Yup. A regular Martha fucking Stewart. Ok. Maybe not so much Martha. Maybe more slave, but at least I have some Sriracha spicy kale chips, a refrigerated container of cooked chipotle chicken pieces, a frozen batch of gluten-free homemade chocolate chip cookies, and a perfectly seasoned and conditioned cast iron pan to prove it. I don't know why I've been feeling so compe lled to bake and cook l a tely. It seems to happen every win ter. I'm thinking I need a twelve -step program for this or at le ast be featured on one of those stupid "My Strange Addiction" shows.  But, b etween my extra-curricular training/baking extravaganza and getting back into work (I've been busy launching a completely new identity for our business as well as working on The Ranch Athletic's website for my coach's soon-to-be-open gym) I've had little time for anything else.
