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

when a mile feels like a marathon

Six months ago, I ran six miles like it wasn’t a big deal. (Not like super fast or anything, but I ran it without stopping or passing out.) Then I was injured for 3 months. Then I started trying to run again, and life and laziness kept getting in the way. So, here I am… Continue reading when a mile feels like a marathon

where I blather on about what I didn’t accomplish last year, and my goals for this year

I’m just going to say it:  I did not hit all my goals for 2016. There. No sugar-coating here. However, the mere fact that I had goals—fore the fist time in 3 years or so—is a big step, and I did make progress on my goals, so I’ll count it as a win. In 2016,… Continue reading where I blather on about what I didn’t accomplish last year, and my goals for this year

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.
