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

these are a few of my frustrating things

Linking up with Amanda at Running with Spoons for random thoughts. 1) Why is it so easy to stop being healthy/losing weight/working out, and so hard to START? Seriously.

random thoughts I have had this week (TOL)

Thursdays are for Thinking Out Loud (according to Amanda at Running with Spoons, anyway), so here goes.  Why do people annoy me so much sometimes?  Sometimes, I love people. They’re awesome. Sometimes (most times), I’d just prefer to be by myself. Oh, yes, I remember:  I’m an introvert. I need alone time to re-charge. (Judging… Continue reading random thoughts I have had this week (TOL)
