positivity gets results…I hope

It’s been a rough couple of weeks–or months–as far as effort I’ve put out for my health. I just did a 2-week sugar reset challenge with Megan at Skinny Fitalicious that motivated me to get my act together. We have about 15 1/2 weeks until the Grand Canyon hike, and I’m not even remotely ready!… Continue reading positivity gets results…I hope

weekly update

I’ve really been struggling lately with the healthy eating/exercise thing. One day will be good, the next day will be horrible. Exhaustion. Busyness. Lack of motivation. I’m fighting all of that, all while being surrounded at work by people who never eat healthy–and my company likes to buy meals! Here lately, that’s been adding up… Continue reading weekly update

…without words…

Linking up with Amanda at Running with Spoons for Thinking out Loud. Saying goodbye is on my mind. But, not an actual goodbye. Just…mentally saying goodbye to a 3+year relationship, and someone whom I care very much about. Saying goodbye is hard enough, but not even getting to tell someone what you’re thinking or feeling… Continue reading …without words…

week in review: a jungle of sadness

Linking up with Meghan at Clean Eats, Fast Feets for the Week in Review. I’m not going to lie: this has been an extremely rough week. Being around people has been very difficult for me. I found out last Saturday that my boyfriend was taking a job out-of-state. He left this past Friday. So, yeah.… Continue reading week in review: a jungle of sadness

week in review: new year/new you?

Linking up with Meghan at Clean Eats, Fast Feets for the Week in Review. I hope everyone had a good Christmas and New Year. Mine was fine. Very low key. The temps dropped on New Year’s Eve, down into the 20s, which does not happen in this part of Texas very often. And it was… Continue reading week in review: new year/new you?

TOL: change is hard

Linking up with Amanda at Running with Spoons for Thinking Out Loud. It’s the first week of January, so it seems like everybody is making changes:  to their diet, their exercise routine, to their life. It’s a little overwhelming, frankly. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a huge supporter of positive change, and, as a habitual… Continue reading TOL: change is hard

thinking out loud: so many wrong things

Linking up with Amanda at Running with Spoons for Thinking Out Loud. -I made it through Halloween with no trick-or-treaters. This is a good thing for a couple of reasons:  I do NOT need candy in the house, as I have little self control when it comes to chocolate. And some of the people who’ve… Continue reading thinking out loud: so many wrong things
