Boxing, One Year Later

Boxing, One Year Later

I recently marked my one year anniversary of taking boxing classes. I can’t believe I’ve been taking these incredible classes for a year. Sure, I used to take spin classes and took them for more than a year, but there was nothing earth-shattering for me about taking them. My classes at Title Boxing Club have [...]

Another step forward

When I first went back to school two years ago, if someone had told me that I'd leave my family for six days to go to a public relations conference for students, I wouldn't have believed that person.  I am a homebody and I had only traveled by airplane twice before.  I like spending time [...]

Last night, I was getting giddy about [...]

Challenging myself and the surprises that come in the process!

I lack confidence sometimes.  I question myself, question others, and generally can drive myself and others crazy.  Sometimes that lack of confidence has hurt me because I've given up.  As I've gotten older, I've tried to use that lack of confidence to my advantage and challenge myself. As I've posted about before, I am taking [...]
