Just saw today’s workout on Zen Planner. You know, that app you should be using to sign up for classes, right? 😉 Anyway...actual description for class today: “wear your bro tank”. I’m dying 😂 We sure do crack ourselves up around here. Guess it’s time to work on those guns 💪🏽
I got an extra whole egg tonight 😋 Since I’ve been back from vacay I’ve been trying to clean up my diet a bit. Prep begins in less than two months and I’ll be taking another mini-vacation before that. Tho goal is to mean out slightly while preserving muscle and strength.
The reasons I added a whole egg is for added energy. My carbs aren’t low to say the least but they have decreased slightly. A common misconception is that only carbs provide energy. This is wrong. Your body love FAT as a fuel source. So when I drop carbs I tend to increase fat slightly. Also, since the body is being provided more fat not only will it use it for fuel but it’ll be more prone to burn fat and not hold onto it since it’s not being deprived. Hope this helps someone.
Day 5: This week we've been reading a book by the father of Multicultural Counseling Psychology, a former professor of mine at Teachers College, Columbia University, Dr. Derald Wing Sue. This book is a fantastic supplement to Critical Race Theory in that it deconstructs the barriers that make frank dialogue about rave so difficult, inflammatory, and uncomfortable. Sue describes race talk as a potential clash of racial realities that pushes hot emotional buttons for almost all involved. Unfortunately it evokes avoidance strategies for many white people who attempt to minimize, connect in a different way, or simply disengage in dialogue. Sue posits that race talk is important in beginning the healing and dispelling of stereotypes and misinformation but huge barriers enacted by both individuals and the systems they occupy make racial dialogues difficult if not impossible in many contexts. Societal rules like the politeness protocol, the academic protocol, and the color blindness protol ensure that spaces are sterile, emotionless, and follow strict guidelines to make sure (white) people are comfortable and cared for. Indeed these barriers protect white folks from appearing racist, realizing their racism, confronting their historical seat of power (aka white privilege), and taking responsibility for their own participation in the explicit and implicit, novel and mundane racism and ending it. This book explores the mechanisms of racial dialogues, how to counter different stories and narratives, and ultimately how to facilitate successful racial dialogues. It's a fantastic read and one that I find particularly useful in day to day interactions because it makes explicit the social rules that I see so many students struggling with when I attempt to engage them in racial discourse inside and outside of the classroom. For an educator, I think this book is indespensible. It's foundational reading about the impact of racial innocuousness, color blindness, and the harm that educators do to themselves, their educational environment, and their students by not understand the dynamics of racial discourse in relation to their students. Check it out and lmk what you think!
My auntie April @april.borden1 first brought dahlias to my attention when I was a teenager. Then I started noticing dahlias everywhere, and now they are one of my favorite flowers.
I have a small army of dahlia bulbs sending up shoots right now in my container garden, and my mom back home has also planted a boatload for me for my wedding florals.
Every time another little bud forms, I get so excited about how it will look, what color it will be, and how big it will get. This one photographed very fuchsia, but it's a little bit more on the burgundy side. ♡♡♡ #dahlia#containergardening#dahliaenthusiast#iowacity#iowacitygardener
