Healing In More Ways Than One
It's amazing how much better I feel these days, thank the Lord. I have so much motivation to take care of myself and get back to enjoying my health and trying new things to be stronger and healthier.
Thanks to my wonderful stepmomma, I rec... Read more
Getting the Glo
No, I did not misspell "glo". I'm trying out Fitness Glo, a website with tons of workouts for all levels from some of my favorite fitness experts. I am already hooked!
My favorite expert, Michelle Dozois, kept posting photos on FB from some... Read more
No Exercise = Sad Panda
My knee still hurts. I have a head cold. I am finally on my monster period after Aunt Flo gave me the cold shoulder for a year and a half. Thanks, lady.
Amongst other things (such as death in the family, life changes, other upheaval), I hav... Read more
Blarging It Up
Oi. I am not sure if today was good or not. A friend and fellow designer left today for California and the opportunity to do package designs for a wine company, which has me feeling sad. She was a real sweetheart and great to work with. We had a... Read more
I just wanted to write a little update about my recovery. Since that blog, a weight has lifted and I have been able to continue avoiding my triggers and dealing with temptation, which has reared its ugly head more than once.
I have been co... Read more
Truth and Fear
I have to get something off of my chest: for the last year, I have struggled with bulimia.
It shocks me to think that I could ever experience anything like that, especially since I made it through my entire life without ever even feeling t... Read more
A part of me is ashamed to say this, but I am having to take the time to reteach myself how to eat... Let that sink in while I explain.
Every morning for the last few months, I have been eating breakfast at my desk in front of my computer ... Read more
This was not really a good week for me, though there were some good things as well. I feel as though so much happened and put even more on my proverbial plate than I have had in a long time.
Monday had me pretty deep in a low, one that came... Read more
What Is The Point?
This will be a short blog because I am feeling pretty wiped out, wiped out in a way that I have not felt in quite awhile. I ran 8.58 miles in 1:19 minutes, which is the longest distance that I have ever run. I was prepared this time and brought ... Read more
Oh, my legs! They feel so exhausted! I ran another 7 miles today. I switched up my normal Wednesday short run for the Friday long run because I will only be working a 6 hour day and would miss my jogging group. My son is having a birthday celebr... Read more
Creating My Own Inspiration
Now that I have "gotten out of the kitchen" and have settled into a new workout schedule, I made the decision to restart my weight loss goals, something that I've never done. Why? Because I have developed a "bread belly" and tacked on 7 pounds.

Training and Learning to Slow Down
I am still over the moon about having a race to train for and even a race to train for in the coming year (I want to complete the Portland Marathon in October next year). I am really feeling the ol' runner's high, which only adds to my determina... Read more
I am on fire! I have found a goal to focus in on, which is something that I have been missing for quite awhile. At first, I thought I wanted to do one of those exercise programs that requires a two or three month commitment (which I still do and... Read more
Update: I Need to Get Out of the Kitchen
Oh, my goodness! I am such a happy little vegan cook! I have been tearin' it up in the kitchen these days, trying all kinds of new recipes and making my own versions of things, including roasting vegetables, making special sauces and even my own... Read more
Hooray! I am back on the Peak10 program! I seriously love these workouts, even though they intimidate me a bit. Since my stint in Sick Land, I kept hemming and hawing about jumping back into it. They are very challenging and I kept thinking to m... Read more
