beautiful! Thank you for sharing! I found your video because I was on hooping.org - I would love to share it with the middle school children I'm teaching a hooping elective to. They're beautiful diverse group of kids going to an alternative junior high school. Thanks again!

A lone Buddha statue placed in a crime-troubled neighborhood becomes a shrine that seems to have helped quell illegal activity The 11th Avenue resident in Oakland's Eastlake neighborhood was simply feeling hopeful in 2009 when he went to an Ace hardware store, purchased a 2-foot-high stone Buddha and installed it on a median strip in a residential area at 11th Avenue and 19th Street. Area residents began to leave offerings at the base of the Bu...

Yah after several days of troubleshooting I was able to log in, save, and navigate the online re-credentialing process for the insurance networks I contract with! And once it was working, it only took a little less than two hours to fill it out. Paperwork day tomorrow, then Polar Plunge on Jan. 1st! Happy Holidays!

I love my big hoops! My favorite is still my 46" but I have a couple even larger than that. I'm kinda over people saying how HUGE my hoop is... I say yes, it fits me just right or it's adult sized. I guess what bothered me at first was every time they said it was huge I thought um, yeah it's diameter is not as big as my chest measurement and it's just a few inches bigger than my waist - so I'm huge... but I'm over it:)

Well said. "My job is to give, to listen, to LOVE with my actions, thoughts, and decisions. Intentions are not enough. Compassion is not enough. Empathy is not even enough. And charity is sure as hell not enough. I have no fear of losing my middle class privilege as compared to other black people, because the culture, the language, the socialized behavior—regardless of how much I reeducate myself—will always be a part of me. I know how to play the system if, and when, I choose to. I know how to disrupt the system and get away with it. I am fully aware of the consequences of my behaviors when I choose to be rebellious, and I know that I can be rescued. The tables will never be turned. The tables will always, in some way, work in my favor. It is my job to destroy the table, and the dining room it sits in, so that everyone can have their share of the bounty." http://www.blackgirldangerous.org/2014/09/saying-class-privilege-white-privileges-deceitful-little-minion/
by Jezebel Delilah X The first time I learned that being perceived as smart and having access to money made me more socially valuable than the children around me, I was about six years old, sitting on my father’s lap, crying about being bullied by my classmates—yet again. My father did his best to lovingly comfort me: he pulled out his bank statement and showed me the tens of thousands of dollars he had in savings. “Baby,” he said. “Those kids ar...

Games helping us live longer? A force for good? totally custom options for goal setting for everything from self care, stopping smoking, health goals, chronic pain, depression, gratitude, and more. I spent some time researching superbetter.com, then setting up a profile and fully customizing it for myself (stretches for my back, hooping, pushups, poetry, writing exercises, and more.) I'll let you know how it goes from here but today it was awesome! http://www.ted.com/talks/jane_mcgonigal_the_game_that_can_give_you_10_extra_years_of_life
When game designer Jane McGonigal found herself bedridden and suicidal following a severe concussion, she had a fascinating idea for how to get better. She dove into the scientific research and created the healing game, SuperBetter. In this moving talk, McGonigal explains how a game can boost resilience -- and promises to add 7.5 minutes to your life.

Just came up with new savory vegan soup - carrot, cauliflower, daiya cheddar, and cilantro soup! Head of cauliflower & handful of carrots cooked in vegan veggie stock with salsa and garlic as seasonings. Then pureed with soy cheddar and add cilantro last. YUM! Sometimes I think I really should write all my recipes down and consider making a cookbook. #veganrecipeshare   #vegansoup

Tuesday Health Tip! How much water should we drink? Divide your body weight in half and that's how many ounces of water. 200 lbs equals 100 oz of water a day! #selfcare   #healthtipoftheday

This is totally awesome and made me snort. Much of this is true for me. I don't tend to like exercise that feels like exercise. ha! I do it for the results and am still trying to figure out how much exercise to rest works for my body. I find certain things help music, audiobooks, videos, being at home in comfy clothes, fun=hula hooping and dancing, and most recently all my pals over on myfitnesspal as I work towards HAES goals. I also find however that there's alot of internalized ableism mixed up in my internalized fatphobia. Somehow if I'm exercising no matter what I look like in the mirror, I feel better and different. If I'm not able to work or work out for health reasons my esteem plummets.   "...Although there are some suggested ways to increase your ventilatory threshold and maximum capacity, they require regular adherence to a routine. In cases like this, researchers suggested lower impact exercise like swimming or biking.

Researchers also found several other psychological factors and cognitive tricks that can help boost your motivation to move. Listening to fast-paced music, exercising in nature or simulated green spaces, feeling competent and confident, giving yourself control or choice, and, for many, fostering social relationships."
