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.

Not another gun violence blog post

It is simple in my view, we have a problem.  We must ask why are assault weapons, weapons that spray when fired, required in civilian life.  I am not against gun ownership. I do question those who are arming themselves with weapons more suited for battle than stopping home invasion.  Are these people expecting the American government to attack them? Why?

As details emerge from this latest mass shooting, it becomes more clear, we have a problem that is not solved by more guns.

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.
