My day to day stuff
I figured I can give an update about how my day to day life is going.
On the fitness front, I LOST my fitbit. I was so upset. I walk over 20,000 steps per day with one or to days of only 10,000-15,000. I'm so sad I lost it. I called it my b... Read more
You Are Successful
I'm a big believer that every single step counts.
As far as exercise, every single step counts. The ones that you get from deciding to take the stairs, from running an extra mile, from chasing your toddler around the yard, from faithfully ... Read more
I walked there
I walked there.
I'm a walker, through and through. I've tried to be a runner, and sometimes I do still run (jog, really), but I am still a walker.
I've walked up mountains- both literally and figuratively. I've walked pushing strollers... Read more

Outward evidence of inward condition
Everyone has a couple of issues. Some people have dealt with their baggage, and many people never, ever do.
Sometimes, being overweight is outward evidence of our inward condition. This isn't true for everyone- some people just like cookie... Read more
Just do it
Some of the best advice I ever received was from Nike: JUST DO IT.
At the time, I don't think I realized how great of advice it was. It sounded dumb. Like, I wanted to pull out my whiny six year old voice and say, "But I don't waaaaaaaaaaa... Read more
Some things I learned about food in India
Living in a different culture and experiencing their eating habits was enlightening to me. By getting outside of America, I was able to have a fresh perspective on American eating habits.
I stayed in India in an orphanage for 4 months. The ... Read more
Happy Summer, Friends
I am back for the summer. As you can see, I took a long hiatus from January-June. That's because I was in India volunteering at an orphanage. It was an amazing experience. I blogged faithfully for the first half of my trip. ... Read more
Embarrassing Gym Story

I've been working out a lot lately, and have begun to love it.
Before, I stuck to bike riding. I biked to work, and it was 25 miles round trip. I would also go for walks with friends and played Frisbee. But I didn't put much thought or eff... Read more
Moving to India?!
As a middle class, 22 year old, college educated American, I can say one thing for sure: I have spent way too much of my life focused on myself.
