So as I've alluded to before in my blogs, I have been feeling kind of poopy lately... just feeling ick and blah and gross. Mild depression? Maybe.
This morning, however, I was called "adorable" by a complete stranger... a really, *really*... Read more
Exercise fixes so much...
No matter how much I may try to talk myself out of it, I always end up feeling better afterward: more centered, calmer, balanced.
I have to wonder if one of the contributing factors to so many people suffering from anxiety disorders is bec... Read more
Ups and downs are natural
I'm feeling crappy and less-than-motivated lately.
I think a lot of people - myself included - get wrapped up in feeling sorry for ourselves. We feel a bit like victims... like life is happening *to* us. Where that is true to an extent - ... Read more
Things are looking up
My foot is definitely getting better. I still have moments where it's giving me fits, but those are much fewer and far-between. I'm going to give myself another week of crosstraining with no running, and then I'm going to try to get back to it... Read more
I MISS RUNNING
I have good days and bad days with my foot... which is an improvement because at least there are good days now. COME ON, FOOT. YOU GOTTA HEAL SO I CAN GET BACK OUT THERE.
So, I'm doing P90X again until I can get my foot back. I had to mo... Read more
AHA!! A GOAL!!!
And boom, just like that, a goalpoast manifests itself in my life!! :)
I got tapped to go to callback auditions for "Gypsy" because the director didn't get a very wide pool of people for it. I'm pleased because after the last audition I h... Read more
Doing what I can with what I've got
This morning, I got up and did a barre workout.
As I worked out, I found myself staring longingly outside at the beautiful sunrise...
MAN I MISS RUNNING.
All the same, I feel good that I worked out. Something ... Read more
So I've made the decision that the plantar fasciitis is just not healing, and that's because I keep reaggravating it by running on it.
Here's the thing: I don't think the running *caused* it. I began to first feel the first little bits of... Read more
Doing something different this Txgiving
So I recently started singing in a church choir.
This is a little weird because I'm not even a Christian, but I'm the type of person who is not religious at all but can find spiritual education and enrichment just about anywhere I go. My o... Read more
Good ol' P90X
You really can't beat it for results. It really is all it is cracked up to be. I have some of the iterations that came afterward, but truly - nothing works as fast and as well as the original.
So I mentioned that I've been having some pes... Read more
I am a stubborn bull.
I am very much a Taurus.
Whether or not you believe in such things (I happen to), if you look at what the description of a Taurus is... that's basically me. Add a dash of Aries because I'm technically on the cusp (April 23), but all the ... Read more
I don't think I've ever raved about waking up in the morning. Let's face it, nobody really likes getting jolted up out of bed, especially when it's cold and dark.
You guys. I have arrived at the best-kept secret in waking-up technology.

Naming it and claiming it
I weighed in at 150 this morning - 15 lbs away from my long-term goal! WOO HOO!!
Interestingly, because I am 5'3", my BMI is still "unhealthy" at 26.6. That's... kind of crazy. I feel fantastic, and my bloodwork numbers are all letter-pe... Read more
Need morning help
So kickboxing never happened last night. By the time I got done solving dinner and picking up my prescription, it was already 7:00 and I was starving... so I ate and figured I'd give myself an hour to digest.
Yeah, I fell asleep. Not co... Read more
Running shouldn't feel THAT good!
But last night, it did!
I went out for a run last night not really knowing what to expect after my craptastic run on Friday. I decided I was just going to go out there and do a minimum of three miles.
As I began running, the sun had j... Read more
