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
Linking up with Meghan at Clean Eats, Fast Feets for the usual shenanigans. I don’t feel that I accomplished a whole lot this week, but let’s see. I finished reading The Long Run and The Rules of Half. Also wrote a post on the books I read in June.

I don’t feel like I was super productive this week, but that may be because I was off on Monday (because of the half marathon last Sunday…wasn’t sure how sore I’d be, so I took it off). I ended up scheduling a… Continue reading week in review: low key
Linking up with Meghan over at Clean Eats, Fast Feets for this one. I’d like to have a really witty post with lots of great pictures, but last week was pretty brutal, so I have no pictures, and just a few comments. I hope everyone had a happy Valentine’s Day. I enjoyed shopping for treats… Continue reading week in review: impending drama?
