Lately I have been thinking about how to bring more value to my audience. Most of my followers (over 2k on this blog and 9k on the Gram!) are moms who are athletic. I kept going through ideas in my head about what content I can produce that is easy to understand, implement, and share... … Continue reading Thrive Thirty! A Brief Introduction
Alright y'all. You probably haven't seen me say much about teaching at VIPKid lately, and it's because they fired me. Yep -- just like that, they terminated my contract. I brought in seven teachers, taught over 500 classes since May 2019, had a 100% timely feedback rate, and 120 5-apple feedback scores.

Diagnosis: CARCINOMA IN SITU. I hadn't heard anyone call my condition "carcinoma" before, and I knew what the word "carcinoma" meant. … Continue reading A Missed Call From Cervical Cancer
Recently, I spent time briefly discussing "ideal weight" with one of my friends, Meghann. Meghann is a registered dietitian and sports nutritionist (also, another BA mother runner, and you can find her here on Instagram and on her website).
