Day 305: So Chocolate.

I’m in Chitown, getting ready to chill. And I have a NEW favorite bedtime routine to test out: Good Day Chocolates.

My friend Simeon is part of the team that started this company, and I was so thrilled to find them smiling back at me at my neighborhood Whole Foods this week.

What could be better than chocolate that helps you calm down or sleep?
Good day? How about great day, I say. Or night, as it turns out.

So I am tucking myself in, hoping to wake up tomorrow and have this long political nightmare over. And, as I go to bed, I remember, we are more alike than we realize. All of us. We want more of the same things than we let on. We share it all, this thing called life. So…. how about a little more kindness to all.

Or… a chocolate chill pill? (I’ve got one if you need one.)

Namaste, chocolate. Namaste.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

P.S. Yoga done for the night!

JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 284 :: your book recommendation?

13 Oct

In my year of the peak performance promise I am ready to read my next book about, well, peak performance… and it occurred to me that maybe I should ask you for some ideas!

Have a go-to favorite?

If so, please send my way! Email, phone, or text me or even comment on the blog, but don’t hold back. I’m curious to know… what systems/books/ideas do you trust or use for peak performance?

It never hurts to ask.

More tomorrow. 
Lovemore,
Jamie

2014 BLOG – DAY 77 :: being honesty honest

18 Mar

I’ve been accused of being too open and honest on this blog. Sharing. Too. Much.

I can understand the sentiment. (I actually don’t share everything. I know some of you are shaking your heads with that statement). But I do share what feels important or significant each night.

Sometimes it’s important information and techniques, and sometimes just trivia for fun, or laughs, or lightness. Other times, it is deep thoughts that I shake off with words. Tonight, it’s my biopsy results.

The tests are back. The cells are ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS). It even has an acronym.

My doctor cautioned me NOT to google it (I did anyway). She told me not to research it online and underscored the fact that it was not cancerous, it is the stage before cancer.

It’s HONESTLY not what I wanted to hear. It’s HONESTLY not what I had planned for myself in this year of peak performance. But, it is what it is and now we move forward with surgery.

Another surgery.
I am left with more questions than answers.
And irony. I am left with a big, whopping serving of irony.

How can it be that I am back in this place again? How can it be that in the same breath my doctor is talking about my fertility and Justin’s semen sample (which was good by the way) and how we are going to get pregnant. Then, in another breath, we are discussing surgery for something with an acronym that has taken up residence in my breast? Boobs, semen, baby, ovulation calculators and surgery?

It’s like a really bad mid-life crisis movie called “This Is 40.” Oh, wait, they already made that movie. So my version will have to be called: “This Is Not Fair.”

And that’s the HONEST fact. It is, ironically, not fair. Almost comically unbelievable.

So onward we go! It could be SO much worse. It could be so much more difficult, in so many ways, that I know is true.

So, maybe, the lesson of this year will be about how to find peak performance with what is. With the cards dealt. With the boobs we’ve already got?

Honestly, I’m glad you’re here with me as we find out. Because if there is one thing I know everyone needs for peak performance it is love and support.

And, I hope to return the favor any which way I possibly can (and will!).

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie
