Last Friday's First Person post was no different than any of my other weekday yammers: most of the good stuff was found in the commentversation. I adore that, no matter the topic, my posts are typically launching pads for YOUR discussions & I learn far more from you than I imagine you do from me. Im also honored when posts spark comments that day & continue to weigh on your mind after ... Continue Reading
PMS Cravings & Active Rest.
MIZ. What do you eat when you have your period and crave sweets. Lots of sweets. I cant do treat days through my whole cycle. HELP! Ahhh, that’s me (and many of us) to the proverbial T. I used to think it was all in my head but, the older I get, the more I realize it isnt. My body truly craves sugar during that time of the month. My go-tos? I’ll make ‘haystack cookies’ with fiber1 ... Continue Reading
First Person Friday: Why do you blog?
My question for myself this week is my question for you: Why do you blog? It will come as no surprise to most of you I returned from BlogHer waving the white flag of blog-surrender. While I definitely re-found my community mojo there (thanks to all these women & I know Im forgetting a bunch) I left feeling my MizFit-blogging days may be numbered. That my days of blogging in this ... Continue Reading
The power of prayer.
As I get older I begin to realize more & more the power of prayer. That so often, when it feels as though we are powerless to DO anything, simply praying for strength & peace for others can at least let them know they are not alone. Yesterday I wrote about the community I found at BlogHer. Today I look to that community to give back. Jen, who is always there for us cheering us ... Continue Reading
Viewer mail: Spotting 101 & Losing the Guilt.
Hey Miz. I know you are a big weight lifter and I had a story I wanted to share and also ask you about. I was at the gym the other morning and a guy asked me if I could spot him (Im a woman. I also was pretty flattered because I must look stronger than I think!). I said no because I wasnt entirely sure what to do. How do I know how to spot someone. First, thanks for calling me a big weight ... Continue Reading
Operation Beautiful follow up post.
subtitle: I havent forgotten the questions you left me in the comments. Did you tell your daughter what you were doing? Or is she too young (I don't have kids yet)? I want to hear more about what you talked to your daughter about (during Operation Beautiful). She is the same age as my daughter. Ever since I regaled you with how the Tornado & I blanketed Austin with missives of love the ... Continue Reading
BlogHer Conference…WE GOT OUR SLOT!
Now we need to make sure the room is jam-packed. Consider yourself commanded to be there if you're at the conference. Unable to attend? Feel free (wink) to tweet the session or post about it on your blog. In my opinion it's as simple as this: If we arent willing to step up & guide the next generation as best we can what hope is there for change? When: Friday July 24th. What ... Continue Reading

Subtitle: Im a little late to this soiree---but better late than never. To know me at all is to know that my primary goal in this life is to raise my daughter to love herself & to realize that simply by being who she is that she's ENOUGH. (Mother's Day 2009 flashback) What I wish for her is this: httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6g1xpI3GITg My secondary goal in this life is to help ... Continue Reading
