what my running motivation looks like on any given day

Linking up with Amanda at Running with Spoons to talk about my running motivation–or lack thereof. Actually, I’m just trying to motivate myself into finishing the other half of my homework and getting a run in, since I was too swamped on Tuesday to run (bad runner, I know). These are the stages of my… Continue reading what my running motivation looks like on any given day

week in review: the good, the bad, and the ugly

Linking up with Meghan at Clean Eats, Fast Feets for the weekly roundup of what I got done last week. It’s been another rough week, so I’m going to try to just do a highlight, a lowlight, and a…really bad thing (if there was one) from the last week. Monday The Good: My coworker came… Continue reading week in review: the good, the bad, and the ugly

week in review: time off

Linking up with Meghan over at Clean Eats, Fast Feets for the usual review. This was actually a short work-week for me, since I had FOUR GLORIOUS DAYS OFF! (For no reason. Just because I wanted to be off.) I wanted to be super-productive with my extra time off, but… I read three books, All… Continue reading week in review: time off

weekly workouts #4

I need an accountability partner. In my eating choices. My workouts. Life. That’s kind of the point of these posts: I’m basically physically lazy, and if I don’t keep myself accountable, I’ll totally slack off and slop around the apartment. Which is kind of what happened since last fall. I was doing great:  running regularly,… Continue reading weekly workouts #4
