The Wonder Woman Inside Me

Let’s be honest, for those of us who grew up in the 70’s, Wonder Woman was awesome.  She had mystical powers, the Lasso of Truth, those cool bracelets, and the tiara.  I can’t forget the awesome costume she donned when she headed out to kick some bad guy butt.  I think a lot of women, …

Doing my best

I’ve been thinking about how I sometimes choose not to do something because I don’t know how, or I think I’ll look stupid.  This weekend though, I tried two new things just because I thought they sounded fun.  First, I’ve been doing free classes at Athleta and this week was a barre class.
