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

weekly update

I missed the Week in Review link-up at Clean Eats, Fast Feets yesterday, because I spent a lot of the weekend trying to rest and recover from last week. I worked 5 days straight. Which is normal for most people, but to someone used to a MWF schedule, it was tough. Monday and Wednesday were… Continue reading weekly update

week in review: giving some authors the side-eye

Linking up with Meghan over at Clean Eats, Fast Feets for the usual Monday goodness. I’m afraid I don’t have much to report this week. Grad school started, which is terrifying, but this class is a Foundations for Graduate Success class, so it’s basics on writing, formatting, university policies, etc. Not super-intense, which is probably… Continue reading week in review: giving some authors the side-eye

Ugh. -Did some outlining on two different story ideas, as well as brainstorming on the revision of a third. -Finished three… Continue reading week in review: from kleenex to meatballs

week in review: injured, frozen, and going back in time

Linking up with Meghan over at Clean Eats, Fast Feets. Last week was not a good week. Monday, one of my co-workers went home, leaving us short-staffed and woefully behind. I walked almost 16,000 steps that day, in 14 1/2 hours of work. LONG. FREAKING. DAY. And I don’t mean just time-wise. Tuesday morning was… Continue reading week in review: injured, frozen, and going back in time

week in review: MIA

Linking up with Meghan over at Clean Eats, Fast Feets for this one. It’s been like 3 weeks since I’ve posted on here, and a month since I’ve done a Week in Review post. Oops. So, what’s been going on? My staycation went well:  I did a deep clean of the apartment, one room per… Continue reading week in review: MIA
