#day15 small salad with cucumber, baked brussels sprouts, tilapia, sautéed peppers/onions/garlic. 👌 I didn’t post any #day14 because I didn’t have any meals prepared, I had some good snacks and wings which I can have, but also a small hot fudge sundae at DQ. Which was amazing in all seriousness 😂.
When one of your oldies but goodies concert shirts finally fit comfy you document that shit!! I literally cannot remember when this shirt fit me this loose maybe around 2013ish.
Hard work is paying off, I am in a season of change with my life and have been struggling mentally, and with that being said this 75 Hard Challenge and has been a game changer for me. I am an emotional eater (when overly stressed or sad) but guess what can’t do that with this challenge and haven’t cheated once on my diet! So I’m going to keep pushing working my ass off and keep going for my goals.
I’m honored and excited to feature today’s Dope Black Woman In Business.
Sommelier @reginetrousseau fell in love with wine during a college study abroad trip to Besançon, France. Bitten by the wine bug early on, she began her career in the beverage industry as a salesperson for a wine distributor.
While in this role Rousseau noticed how the barrier of “wine speak” formed a disconnect between wine professionals and consumers. Inspired to bridge the gap, Rousseau started her company @shallwewine , a wine, spirits, and beer tasting company based in Chicago.
At Shall We Wine, Rousseau helps national and boutique wine and spirits brands expand their presence across the Midwest; while also providing wine education through events, books, and videos that she develops. Making wine approachable for everyone is at the core of Rousseau’s work. She and her expertly trained Shall We Wine team are masters at translating complex terminology into language that individuals of every level of wine proficiency appreciates.

In her latest book, Searching for Cloves and Lilies: The Wine Edition (published April 2018), Rousseau boldly illustrates the dynamics of personal relationships while pairing each poem with wine that echoes the mood of her writing.
Rousseau received her Level II certification from the International Sommelier Guild and an Executive Bourbon Steward from Stave and Thief Society.
Rousseau has been listed as one of “40 African-American Tastemakers,” and she is a Gwendolyn Brooks Open Mic semi-finalist.

#day15 “In Chinese philosophy, yin and yang describes how seemingly opposite or contrary forces may actually be complementary, interconnected, and interdependent in the natural world, and how they may give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another.” - Wikipedia
