week in review: it is what it is

Linking up with Meghan at Clean Eats, Fast Feets for the Week in Review. Last week, I: Worked 39 hours in 3 days at the day job.

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.

On April 21st, I did the Wild Canyon Ultra in Quitaque, Texas. It was my first ultra, and I just did the 25k. There was also a… Continue reading wild canyon ultra race recap

week in review: me vs. the elements

Linking up with Meghan at Clean Eats, Fast Feets for the Week in Review. Last week was one adventure after another. Last Monday, I came home sick from work. 24-hour stomach bug. SO not fun. Yuck. I was still feeling a bit under the weather Tuesday, when I drove my parents to the airport. I… Continue reading week in review: me vs. the elements
