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.

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.

weekly review: the truth hurts

From July 6th of last year to around mid-October, I made huge changes in my diet and exercise routine (which had been mostly slim to none before that). I started running with the Couch to 5k app, cut out processed carbs for the most part, and lost 28 pounds, ran a 5k trail run, and… Continue reading weekly review: the truth hurts

Eve Schaub is a serial memoirist with two bachelor’s degrees and an MFA.
