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

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. Four years ago, I had a major stroke, without warning, and I almost died. The doctors pretty much said I’d die. Fortunately, they weren’t the ones in control.… Continue reading today is for gratitude (thinking out loud)

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?

week in review: things I am grateful for

I’m a little tired of my recent boring re-hashes—what can I say, while I’m super busy, it’s mostly an introverted sort of busy, hence without excitement–so I’m going to change it up little bit, and list things I am/was grateful for last week instead. Still linking up with Meghan at Clean Eats, Fast Feets, for… Continue reading week in review: things I am grateful for

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
