Selfie Sunday – 266 Days to Go

The month of momentum has been very good to me, and I’m sad to see it go (I realized again how my IRONMAN goal has affected me when I remembered that it is a leap year and my immediate thought was “oh good, an extra day of training.”  Also, for the first time in my life I’m looking forward to daylight savings time so that I can sleep in and still have a little shade.

Body Love Obstacle Course (BLOC) – Registration Closes March 1!

I am so excited about this! I have been working hard with Jeanette DePatie and 7 other experts on the BLOC  – a 10 week, proven, step-by-step program that will give you the coaching from nine amazing experts, the tools, and the community you need to create a rock solid foundation of self-esteem and body love, and teach you the strategies and skills you’ll need to leverage that to create the life you’ve always wanted no matter what obstacles the world puts in your way.

Our relationships with our bodies don’t happen in a vacuum, so just learning to see our beauty or love our bodies isn’t enough.  On our journey to body love and amazing lives, the world throws obstacles in our way – obstacles that aren’t our fault, but become our problem. We’ll teach you practical, realistic, proven strategies to go above, around, and through the obstacles that the world puts in front of you, to get to the life you’ve always wanted.

    I have a question about your bike helmet. When I put mine on, I’m never sure how much to tighten it. If I make it fairly snug, it feels like the strap is choking me. If I leave it as loose as I like, it is easy to shove the helmet around on my head, which doesn’t seem like it would help in a crash.

    Do you have the choking issue, or do I just have a neck design that doesn’t work well with chin straps?


    • I’m no expert, but for me, I make it fairly snug, but the strap is under my chin and doesn’t press on my neck so it never feels like it’s choking me. It may be a face/neck shape thing? Sorry I’m not more help!
