Jessie couldn't join us for this interview, but that didn't slow us down! Seth is full of advice about high-intensity sports, how to keep yourself stable, and what to do to prepare.

Wins & Fails

Jessie's Win: she registered to vote! She's been looking forward to voting since the 8th grade and was super excited to drop off her absentee ballot at the library.

Colleen's Fail: I had a random, overnight, extended high that had no explanation. Also, ChocZero's Keto Peppermint Bark spikes me like real chocolate. So that's fun. 

Hack of the Week

Go on a walk! Doesn't matter when. It's relaxing, gets your blood pumping, and acts as a transition time. My husband and I go on a walk after my workday ends, so we get that nice separation since I work from home.
