The No Good Very Bad Day(s)

Wow-wee. It’s strange how much one event can effect so many other things throughout the day. Yesterday I woke up just like any other day. I got myself ready for work, made some lunch and packed up my gym bag. It was the day after a big snow storm, and I was frustrated as I…

Re-evaluating

Man oh man. Life really has been crazy lately. It’s had some ups and some downs…and some SERIOUS downs, but I haven’t allowed myself to blog about any of them. Really, because I feel terrible for you, readers. Lately, my blog has become nothing but a place for me to complain about my minuscule problems…ones…

Kicking Off 2015

Now is the time of year when everyone is “hitting the reset button” and “starting fresh” with every aspect of their lives. Organization, motivation, new goals. It’s the magic of the season, I guess. For me, I haven’t done much in the ways of resolutions or goal-setting. The transition in to 2015 has, so far,…

Recovery From a Vacation

People say it all the time, “I need a vacation from my vacation!” That’s exactly how I felt when I returned from what I’ve been calling my Mega Florida Trip. I wrote about the Walt Disney World Wine and Dine Half Marathon, so I’ll spare the details in this post, but I was pretty excited to…

I Can’t Get No…

Sometimes, I go into what I call a spiral. It’s deadly. Generally it starts with a really strong negative emotion. Something will set me off and make me angry, or I’ll get incredibly depressed and sad. How I handle it is the tipping point. That sentence nearly read, “how I choose to handle it is…

Unscheduled Life

I wrote this post about a month ago. I talked about how my mental health is as important as my attention to my physical health, and summarized it with a mini-inspirational-revelation that I need to take the time to schedule some “me” time. Time to read, time to do yoga, time to kill brain cells…

Nothing To Do Tonight

I can’t remember the last time I sat in silence. The past few months have flown by, and I realized it’s the root of my exhaustion. For a while now, I have been attempting to get six or seven hours of sleep – and it’s been successful. Even though I was disciplined before about going…

Being Healthy Means Getting Sick

I found this on Pinterest just after I signed up for the Buffalo Half Marathon. I was so excited and motivated, ready for the challenge ahead of me. Now, nearly a month away from the race and 3 months into training, I’ve re-read this list and disagreed with nearly all of it. My disagreement comes…

Gaining Momentum

I’m just about a month into my half marathon training, and I think I’m allowed to officially call myself a runner. And as a runner, I’ve learned a lot more about myself in my first month of training than I thought I would. I put $70 into a race very far into the future thinking…

“Don’t Make Me Raise My Voice!”

Tonight it took me an extra hour to drive home from work because of miserable snow and low visibility. There was a very small (well, 20 minute long) moment in time where I thought I would have to pull over and spend the night in my office…or my car. It was terrifying. What was more…
