Those Who Do Yoga, Of Which I Am Not One

It's 5:15AM and my alarm is going off and I stare at it in disbelief until I remember why I need to be up at 5:15. I am doing yoga. Yes. Yes I am.

I drag myself (literally - the legs aren't working right at this hour) out of bed, shove on some sweatpants, and decide to leave on the ratty tee shirt I slept in. What if I sweat? Do you sweat during yoga? People always look so serene when they do it. How can you be serene if you're pouring sweat?

Netflix Pick: Abducted In Plain Sight

I just finished watching "Abducted In Plain Sight" on Netflix. Its a documentary about a pedophile who befriends and then manipulates a family - particularly the parents - while he grooms their daughter to his advances. He ends up abducting the girl.

The story is told through interviews with the victim and her family members, along with input from the FBI investigator and tapes of interviews with the perpetrator. Holy God. I literally screamed "What the F---!" at the TV multiple times over these parents who enabled all this. They're clearly a very loving family and I realize they've been through a lot, but damn. Just . . . damn.

Rockin' Recipe GIFs: 4 Ingredient Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken

Today's yummy super easy recipe gif comes from Redditor u/morganeisenburg and it got a big thumbs-up from my kid and also from a group of partygoers. The only thing I did was cut the buffalo sauce back slightly, because my son and I don't like our chicken swimming in it. Your mileage may vary. We ate it without all the extra ranch at the end, too, but again, you do what you like to do.

5 TED Talks You Really Should Watch

I love TED Talks. The presentations have such a wide variety of information and from eloquent speakers with such command of their subjects. I've decided I'm picking a new one every week and I promise I'll spotlight the great ones going forward. For now, here are five of my current faves.

Imagine being a young woman with a great career ahead of you. Imagine making a bad choice - or a string of them - that could impact your employment. Now imagine the whole world knows every lurid detail and it's splashed all over the media and the internet, haunting you for life. Ms. Lewinsky discusses the personal and professional toll of being a victim of the media.
