drama causes insomnia: you know that, right?

This is a true statement:  I don’t like drama.  I just want to live my life, go to work, do my school stuff, hang out with friends and family, follow my own interests, and mind my own freaking business.  I don’t like upheaval.  I don’t like chaos.  I don’t like conflict.  I’m not a fan… Continue reading drama causes insomnia: you know that, right?

I’m baaaack…..

Did you miss me?  No?  That’s cool. You’ve been busy, I’m sure, what with the holiday craziness and making New Years’ Resolutions you know you won’t keep.  Okay, maybe you’ll keep them.  I don’t know you that well (and why is that? Because you never comment! How am I supposed to get to know you… Continue reading I’m baaaack…..

laziness or tiredness?

I’ve been lazy, lately. Not with the running. I did every scheduled workout. Granted, I didn’t keep up with the voice coaching, but I did them. I’ve had a little bit of pain from whatever was bothering me on my lower leg, but it hasn’t been too bad. I think the rest helped. Yesterday was… Continue reading laziness or tiredness?

paleo wannabe

As my life has been more chaotic than normal lately (work, school, the process of finding a house and preparing to move, upcoming vacation), health and fitness has been on the backburner.  I’m still reading some health blogs and storing up ideas for after vacation/moving, when I have time to think.  My plan then is… Continue reading paleo wannabe

random thoughts, mainly about food and fitness

To be honest, most of my thoughts are random.  Some are just more so than others.  Anywho…. *** So, the Diva and I started this “diet”.  (I don’t really want to call it a diet.  That wasn’t MY phrasing.  It was all hers. I just wanted to get healthier/eat healthier.  But she sent me a… Continue reading random thoughts, mainly about food and fitness

getting healthy is hard

Like, really hard.  Making myself exercise is difficult.  It’s not that I’m lazy (Okay.  I can be lazy. Easily.  But I work three 14+ hour days a week–on my feet for an average of 7 or 8 miles.).  It’s that I’m tired.  I’ve been tired since the stroke, and while it’s better than it was,… Continue reading getting healthy is hard

What I never thought I’d say

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about goals.  Well, sort of, anyway.  Thanks to this post from Simply Stacia, I decided to start a little notebook of things I want to do, be, and have, and also to keep any inspirational things I run across in.  The funny thing is, when I tried to list… Continue reading What I never thought I’d say

Hello, Sunshine!

It’s been a while since I posted here.  I’ve been busy.  Doing what, you might ask (or I might ask myself)?  Um…..stuff.  Yeah.  That’s it.  Stuff.  So there.  Okay, so I don’t really know what I’ve been doing, I just know I’ve been busy.  Even though this week was spring break, I’m tired.  Really tired. … Continue reading Hello, Sunshine!

suddenly…I’m an aunt

Okay, so it’s not normally a surprise to become an aunt.  But in this case, yeah, it kind of was.  Bubba only told me two weeks ago that he was going to give his girlfriend’s baby–not HIS baby–his last name.  I’m not judging.  I am a little concerned that he’s only been dating her since… Continue reading suddenly…I’m an aunt
