week in review: a jungle of sadness

Linking up with Meghan at Clean Eats, Fast Feets for the Week in Review. I’m not going to lie: this has been an extremely rough week. Being around people has been very difficult for me. I found out last Saturday that my boyfriend was taking a job out-of-state. He left this past Friday. So, yeah.… Continue reading week in review: a jungle of sadness

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)
