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. I lost 27 lbs last year, and have gained all but 10 lbs back. It started with a running injury that kept me sidelined for 3… Continue reading these are a few of my frustrating things

week in review: speedos, sugar, and sadness

Linking up with Meghan over at Clean Eats, Fast Feets for the feeling of accomplishment it gives me. Let’s see, I finished the draft of my final paper for my Leadership Theory in Communication class. All of the draft. All 1,500 words. In less than a day. Like, I finished it about 15 minutes ago.… Continue reading week in review: speedos, sugar, and sadness

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)

week in review: arrggh!

Linking up with Meghan over at Clean Eats, Fast Feets for this one. I skipped a week, because last week was pretty…brutal. My boyfriend’s mother died very unexpectedly, and that’s not been an easy situation to get through. So, not sleeping much. No energy to work out. And definitely not eating healthy. Let’s see, besides… Continue reading week in review: arrggh!

week in review: progress

Linking up with Meghan over at Clean Eats, Fast Feets, as an excuse for my rambling… This week, I: -only managed to read one book, Paula Poundstone’s The Totally Unscientific Study of the Search for Human Happinness. An interesting read, just wasn’t what I expected. But I liked it. -survived the first week of my… Continue reading week in review: progress
