How do you workout with an injury?
“I’ve come to the realisation that my fear of looking dumb in front of people has been holding me back from finding new physical activities to love, and so I need a little help stepping outside my comfort zone.”
This week in fitness, I’m trying out yoga for beginners, gym-friendly podcasts and running apps.
“I’m definitely not a believer in those no/low carb diets, it’s more that my bread to non-bread daily ratio is waaaayy off and I need to cut back a little. Just a tiny bit, though, ’cause nothing feels as good as freshly baked miche sourdough tastes.”
This week I’m talking about working out at my apartment, finding the best germ-free water bottle, and a cool meditation app.

“This will become a regular thing — a weekly recap of what’s working for me and what isn’t on my personal quest for improved health and wellness. There’ll be a lot of ground to cover because I have no fucking clue what I’m doing. Everything I know about health was taught to me by a giraffe that lived in a trailer.”
Screet was created as part of the 2015 StartupBus competition, a roadtrip hackathon where folks on different buses develop startup projects on the road, by a team featuring Autostraddle’s very own Creatrix Tiara, and she’s the single person undertaking its second coming. As she builds momentum for the reboot, she set aside some precious moments to talk with me about where Screet comes from and where it’s going.
“While 13.5 million viewers tune into the Women’s World Cup for the next few weeks, watching as the global elite female soccer players battle it out for the title of “Best in the World,”the New Generation Queens practice. On a field of dry brown grass in Zanzibar, a remote island off the coast of Tanzania, they are solemn, focused, and fearless.”
