MT Day 9 not stopping

I am still going after 7 days of training. I would say strong but I am not. I am pleased with the results of my training thus far. I am an inch smaller for my shirts are fitting better. I have clarity in thoughts.

I am not getting to bed at a decent time. I shall work more this week on getting to bed at a decent hour. Sleep is important.

I celebrated with wine the Jets win over New England. I had one glass and lots of water. I awaken this morning in great spirits. I fixed a smoothie for myself (banana, strawberry, collards, cayenne, and peaches). I fixed french toast and eggs for the boys.

During my bike ride, I could feel the cayenne working its way in my body. I continue to not have any swelling in my hands. I have had some swelling in my feet and hip areas. I am sure that soon that swelling will stop as well.

The key points that came to me today during my workout are

Do not stop
Motivate self at all times
Do not wait for others to motivate you
Ignore those who would get you off point
Do not wait for the perfect setting, equipment, or time - just do it

More later. Thanks for following.

White Boys Whine

Quick  and dirty   Star Trek  Discovery  is everything  I  thought  it would  be.  It is my hope the White  boys  chill the fuck out .  There will be a White male captain .   The Black  woman  will be of a lowered  status.  White  boys  are you appeased ?
My personal  view fuck White  boys who had their dicks in a vise  over women  of color  at the helm of a fictional  space vessel.  I shall watch  Star Trek  Discovery .  I shall pay the fee to CBS Access  with joy. If you wanted to watch OITNB you paid  Netflix . Overall  I look  forward  to the day a fictional  show  that features  women  of color  in prominent  positions  doesn't  freak out White males.  They were  so freaked  out  they compared  The Orville  to Star Trek  Discovery .  Guys chill out ,  future  happens .

The Pure Driven Snow in Mississippi

Work to do

I am typing a few quick thoughts today.  This thought is about White people being real.  When I returned to Mississippi in 2002, I had planned to only be here two years.  I didn't wish my kids to be in the oppressiveness of Mississippi too long.   I like other young Black people left this state before the ink was dry decades earlier.  When I returned in 2002, I was to learn of a silent change in the state, White folks waking-up. 

They are sadly still not the majority in 2017 but they are growing daily.  Trump has helped many White people face the mirror no longer able to deny the truth.  They are now facing the results of hate without the filter of Confederate glasses.  Mississippi is a wreck and holding on to a divisive symbol of hate, our flag.  Centuries of hate in the state has left the state destitute to the point even White people are leaving in large numbers.   Those now leaving are exporting hate to other states that have done well economically by ending policy of hate.
