One of my missions in life is to inspire women to show up with energy and a smile.
But this is real life. It’s not always that easy, and I’m not going to post just the happy highlight reel.
Today was tough.
Mornings might be the most difficult, because that’s when Capote would curl up in my arms as I was worked at the table and then follow me down to the basement for my workout.
Today, I stopped after the first set. Nick told me to give myself permission to sit it out.
But you know what?
I needed the distraction.
It wasn’t about burning calories. It wasn’t about lifting heavy.
It was about giving my mind and body something healthy to do for just a few minutes.
So today, I celebrate that I got up, that I pushed play and that I finished.
And that’s enough to be proud of.

March 21st is International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.
Article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights says that "all human beings are born free and equal." Article 2 goes on to say that everyone is entitled to the rights and freedoms of the Declaration regardless of factors such as race. Still, racism, xenophobia, and intolerance persist throughout the world. Migrants, refugees, and those of African descent have been the biggest targets of discrimination. On this day, and at all times, member states of the United Nations are urged to fight all forms of racial discrimination.
International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination was proclaimed in 1966, and called on the international community to work to eliminate all forms of racial discrimination. Each year there is a new theme that is focused on. The day was designated to be March 21 because that date is the anniversary of an event in 1960 when police in Sharpeville, South Africa, opened fire killing 69 who were protesting against apartheid laws.
The day should be observed by working to combat racial discrimination wherever it may be found. Join a group in your community that works to eliminate racial discrimination, or look for an event related to the day being held near you. The United Nations also holds events that could be watched via webcast. Consider also taking a trip to Cincinnati Ohio to visit the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, which tells the stories of yesterday's and today's freedom heroes.
