Saturday Morning Rendezvous With: The Athlete's Plate

From The Two Whos:



As athletes, we juggle the priorities of family, lifestyle work and training and never seem to have enough time!



Chef and endurance athlete Adam Kelinson has written a book/cookbook that helps to take the mysetery out of cooking simple and quick whole meals that will help us eat right to increase performance. In his book, he jokes



about talking to athletes about what they eat.… Continue

The Two Whos on :"Chewing on Anger like an Old Piece of Gum."

How often do we chew on our anger like an old piece of gum? We stretch it, snap it , pop it out, and then take it all back in and restart. It is the routine of anger- gum chewing. When the original flavor of the anger is gone, our mind will make up more stories as if to create more artificial flavor, so we continue to chew...



Spit it out! What good does chewing on anger do for us? This is the metaphor that Cece uses with her client...to spit out the gum of anger rather than… Continue

The Two Whos on "Let it Go and Set Me Free."

"We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to live the one that is waiting for us." --- Joseph Campbell



This poetic writing of Mythologist Joseph Campbell says it all about what it takes to be truly alive moment by moment. For many, letting go of the past and the attachment to things we have planned is a daily spiritual practice. Holding on to the past is the avoidance of being present, and the hindrance of the unfolding future.... What do… Continue

The Two Whos on "Trash Day..the Day of Dread... Is Being Miserabalae Worth it?"

It is Sunday, garbage day. It is the day of dread for Yun for four years since the start of her single motherhood. The trash needs to be collected from around the house from several trash bins, from beneath the kids' beds where she often finds candy wraps and empty water bottles.…

Rendezvous with the Two Whos at: The Cement Store

Cece and Yun are dedicated fans of a cement store! It is not about the cement though but about the spin classes there.

Every year our dear friend Tom Hendricks teaches an amped up spin class for 14 weeks. It always starts in January and goes through March. It is sort of like going to school for cyclists...getting fit and ready for the season! Tom is old school…

Paper or Plastic? How Many Bags are Enough?

If you are anything like Cece, you try to recycle your bags from the grocery store. She has used her plastic bags for everything from cat litter to garbage can liners. When the plastic bags pile to uncontrollable levels, she puts them into a tissue box so they have a "dispenser!" When the tissue boxes pile up, she switches to paper bags. When the paper bags pile up, she switches to...? Hmmm, that might be the problem...



Over the weekend, she flipped her lid when all the… Continue

From The Two Whos..."For us mere Mortals, Loving with All our Heart is not Easy..."

For us mere mortals, loving with all our heart is not easy, letting go of what we have loved is nearly impossible. Lately, Cece and Yun have had several discussion on letting go, mixed with other philosophical discussions such as why chicken cross road, how dating engineering works and what is the goth counseling... But nothing can compare to Mary Oliver's powerful words:



To live in this world

you must be able

to do three things:

to love what is mortal;

to hold… Continue

The Two Whos on "Why did the Chicken (Soup) Cross the Road?"

Lately, Yun and Cece check in with each other by asking " Do you have chicken soup?' since we are both are little under the weather...



Off course, Yun's chicken soup must have some dumplings in it and Cece must have the noodles in it. It occurs to Cece that chicken soup, as a cure for the cold, must cross all cultures. We know now that it crosses Chinese, Italian , Vietnamese, and Jewish culture. The Two Whos being silly at heart, think "Why does the Chicken Cross the… Continue

Tortilla Therapy!

From the Two Whos Blog: Cece learned a long while ago that she could use cooking much the same way that a person could use play therapy or therapeutic story telling . Cooking can help people access their emotions, and to work on unresolved deep issues that are not easily solvable through regular talk therapy. Cooking is much less threatening and confrontational since the person doing it is distracted by their cooking. The cook is also dealing… Continue

The Two Whos Blog: A Few Good Women and a Few Good Men

There is a love and hate relationship for the opposite sex. Just look at the blogs of single women and single men! We are seeking the opposite sex all the while cursing at them, making fun of them and treating them as 'things'. The Two Whos are definitely not going to do that., wink wink...



Cece and her friends are talking about swearing off men, thinking men are distracting to say the least. Yun is… Continue

From the The Two Whos Blog:



Inspired by Einstein: "Make things simple not simpler."



One day, Yun says to Cece:
