I can believe just a few months ago we were hiking in this snowstorm. Now it’s fully summer and I can’t even fathom wearing a puffy coat and fleece leggings.

What’s your favorite season? ☀️or ❄️??

TGIF! This week has been an unusual one for me. The new moon was on Wednesday June 13 and it’s the only moon day this month. It was also a super moon 🌚
_
New moons are associated with grounding, calming, planting seeds and energy. However, this was not the case for me this week. I’ve been tired, emotional, scattered in my thoughts and life.
_
Since this new moon is in Mars, @divineharmony states to “Navigate communication terrain with high levels of consciousness and awareness. It’s also important to question our thoughts and feelings- as spiraling out in them can lead into dark places…” _
I’m taking this as a sign to reflect, write, and read more. Also to speak and do less.
_
Has anyone else felt the same weird energy this week? Or am I just cuckoo??

Did you all see my post from yesterday?
_
I talked about cycling safety! What I didn’t talk about was gear.
_
🚵🏽‍♀️I ALWAYS wear a helmet! You are just stupid if you don’t, or if you wear one and don’t buckle it 🧐. I’ve been in and witnessed so many crashes that could have paralyzed or killed me or others people if we didn’t wear a helmet.
_
🧤 Gloves- I admit I don’t always wear them road cycling but always mountain biking.
_
💪🏽Elbow pads- I got some low profile ones after my last crash on my mountain bike and I know they will save the skin on my elbows here on out!
_
😎Sunglasses. I love my @oakley and @smithoptics prisms- they are amazing when you change from light to dark a lot.
_
🍑pad- no joke a good chamois goes a long way!!! Here I’m wearing @shebeestofficial. Nothing sucks more than having a sore ass the next day.
_
💦Hydration pack- I usually don’t ride more than 3 hours so my Camelback 2L is perfect.
_
⌚️Garmin Vivioactive HR monitor. I won’t leave the house without this on. Ever. It has a 13 hr GPS battery life, synchs to your phone for text, weather, music, and activity [@strava]. The best part is I only have to charge it once a week or every other week! 🙌🏼

Summer is here and it’s peak 🚲 season- for road cyclist and for mountain bike riders.
_
Throughout the years, @dudebro7 and I have witnessed dozens of crashes. Despite my own mountain biking crash that left me ☝🏾☝🏾 (bruised not broken), others haven’t been so lucky. Within the last 2 weeks, two of our dear friends went down in two separate occurrences fracturing bones.
_
Here’s some education for everyone:
_
❗️Non-cyclists❗️
🚙Pay attention- stop texting, turning around, snapchatting yourself singing, Facebook live-ing while driving
_
🚙Cyclists have the right away. Even if they are being morons and riding outside the bike lane, go around them.
_
❗️Cyclists❗️
_
🚲Pay attention- stop talking on the phone, instastory-ing, and screwing with your Garmin . I stopped listening to music a while ago so I could use ALL my senses for cars and other riders. Watch out for road- potholes, branches, cones, other hazards.
_
🚲Stay in your lane. Someone I work with told me “I hate you cyclists you are always in my lane”. Even though we have the right away, there is a solid line for a reason. Stay in it.
_
🚲Uphill riders have the right of way. It’s harder for them to stop so downhillers, pull over.
_
Sorry, I clearly don’t have any rules for lack of skill to prevent crashing on a mountain bike yourself 🤣
_
If you have learned anything, please click in my link in bio to help the cause, as our dear friend is having surgery today!

Words are like magic wands. They either end up sending something that will enhance or destruct.
_
Be careful with words because once they leave your mouth they cannot be taken back. Yes, apologies can calm the destruction but initial impact won’t be forgotten.
_
Just as a magic wand gets stronger by the power of the user, if you want to be enhanced as a person, positive words should be coming from your mouth✨. .

Ok guys, as fun as this week has been, I wanted to bring something up that is not on the light side of things.
_
I was shocked to hear about Kate Spade’s death. In High School (and in Orange County none the less), she was THE designer. Iconic style, one of a kind. In my eyes she embodies women power in a pool of male designers. I would like to believe that everyone who owned/owns a Kate Spade is not only proud of the brand but also what she stands for.
_
How can someone who has built an empire with all the success in the world be in the darkest place that they take their own life? I can absolutely understand. I have struggled with PMDD for over a decade. Although not quite as bad as Major Depressive Disorder, I’ve had some dark periods. Depression is a real and should not be taken lightly. Everyone is different with how they deal and cope with depression, and I truly believe there is a solution for for each individual.
_
I have tried a myriad of things for my PMDD- supplements, food, mind body therapy, prescription medication, and counseling. While most of it is triggered by anxiety and stress, I have also found the type of food I eat, exercising, supplements, meditation, sleep, and a solid support system is crucial. The moment I push myself, I spiral downwards.
_
For anyone has struggled with depression, you know the feeling of falling 10000 feet and hoping there is nothing to catch your fall below.
_
Put a 🌹 below for anyone you know who has struggled, and for Kate!! .
