ABOUT THE WOMEN DO BLOG

We have all felt the pressure to live up to others' standards or live life a certain way, but the truth is no one can ever live up to anything that wasn't meant for them or walk in a path that belongs to someone else. We are all individuals with different goals and passions. We have to do our lives our way, we have to live for ourselves, we have to forget the 'rules'.

When I moved to Louisville I didn’t get the Derby, and where were all these people going who took half the week off? I thought it was one day. Boy was I wrong! I made the very naïve mistake of thinking I would never get in to Derby, but here I am six years later and I...

This is one of those hard topics because EVERYONE has an opinion and most of us probably don’t agree. I want to make it very clear, from the beginning, that this piece is about telling you that dieting is bullshit. So if this isn’t for you, that’s OK, no judgment. We c...

I am recovering from a lifetime addiction to numbers. Scale. Calories. Clothes size. Who knows where it starts, truly I have no idea. But somewhere along the line I learned that those numbers were an important part of who I was. That they had the right to define me to...

Have you ever listened to what you say about your own body or what you say to other people about their body, especially when trying on clothes? We have to learn to choose our words more wisely. And don't think that being wiser about our word choice means we have to lie...

I woke up, got ready to go to the gym and found myself in that frustrating moment, judging my body as I looked at my reflection in the mirror. I am tired of those moments.

The greatest way to grant ourselves independence is to free ourselves from the person who looks in...

When the US women’s soccer team won the 1999 World Cup it lit a fire inside of me. I had played soccer my whole life but until that moment I had never felt that kind of excitement about being an athlete. It was the first time that I can remember women of any US sports...

“Who has the kids when you’re here?”

“Are you really going back to work after you have your second child?”

“Are your kids in daycare?”

“Who makes them dinner?”

I could go on and on with the questions I get asked on a weekly, if not daily basis, as a working mom in a non-tr...

I have known Tiffany (I call her Tiff) since freshman year of college. It was basically love at first sight, I am not even kidding. We are two extremely passionate and silly human beings, we just clicked, became roommates, and the rest is history. She is one of my clos...

I am an athletic trainer. For those who may not know fully what that means the quick definition is: Athletic Trainers are healthcare professionals, who specialize in prevention, evaluation, and rehabilitation of injuries as well as emergency care for athletes and/or pa...
