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

week in review: fashion police and pregnant coworkers

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.

today is for gratitude (thinking out loud)

Linking up with Amanda at Running with Spoons for this bit of randomness. Okay, not randomness. Not to me. Today, June 1st, is my four-year survival anniversary.

Fortunately, they weren’t the ones in control.… Continue reading today is for gratitude (thinking out loud)

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

week in review: low key

Linking up with Meghan over at Clean Eats, Fast Feets for this one. 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

week in review: impending drama?

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?
