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

week in review: time off

Linking up with Meghan over at Clean Eats, Fast Feets for the usual review. This was actually a short work-week for me, since I had FOUR GLORIOUS DAYS OFF! (For no reason. Just because I wanted to be off.) I wanted to be super-productive with my extra time off, but… I read three books, All… Continue reading week in review: time off

weekly workouts #4

I need an accountability partner. In my eating choices. My workouts. Life. That’s kind of the point of these posts: I’m basically physically lazy, and if I don’t keep myself accountable, I’ll totally slack off and slop around the apartment. Which is kind of what happened since last fall. I was doing great:  running regularly,… Continue reading weekly workouts #4

weekly workouts #2

This week, I’m pleased to say that I hit 3 out of 4 of my planned cardio workouts, and all four of my strength training sessions! I wasn’t doing anything crazy—pretty low-key—but it feels good to have achieved some consistency this week. Here’s what the week looked like: Monday: Worked 14 hours, 12,583 steps (5.96… Continue reading weekly workouts #2

week in review: speedos, sugar, and sadness

Linking up with Meghan over at Clean Eats, Fast Feets for the feeling of accomplishment it gives me. Let’s see, I finished the draft of my final paper for my Leadership Theory in Communication class. All of the draft. All 1,500 words. In less than a day. Like, I finished it about 15 minutes ago.… Continue reading week in review: speedos, sugar, and sadness
