On falling backwards, food anxiety, setting goals, and trusting yourself
Sunday, March 20, 2016 6 comments
It's been awhile, friends. I've had some pretty intense epiphanies, but backstories are required. I'll try to be concise, try to bear with me: My last blog, two years ago, detailed my physical issues eating because of TMD (i.e., lock-jaw). ... Read more

...man, it's been almost 3 months since my last blog! I'm sorry I've been so quiet, but I promise I have good reasons! I still am learning about time management as a new teacher, so I find most of my time near the computer has been spent p... Read more
Prelim is turned in. Next hurdle: to drop a dress size!
Thursday, March 13, 2014 4 comments
I turned in my prelim! A day early at that! I have to confess- today was a *terrible* eating day for me. I added "for me", because I'm pretty sure it would be considered a normal day by the general population. After I turned in copies of m... Read more

So my written prelim is due in 7 days (I swear, I just heard "7 days" in Samara's voice from The Ring...*shudders*). If I don't pass, I'm immediately removed from the program. So, that being said, I'm going to be spending a lot of time refining... Read more

Tonight's class was AWESOME. My foot held up astonishingly well, I only had to modify one of the moves that we did, and the trainer made sure that I still absolutely felt the burn. It feels so good to be in group workouts again, I am remin... Read more

So I injured myself running this weekend. I'm not sure how I did it, or what is wrong, but I'm spending my evening with my right leg elevated, alternating cold/warm compresses. I almost fell down the stairs while trying to navigate them... Read more

Apologies, tonight's post is going to be a long disjointed one. It could be because for the past 3 days I've pulled 10-14 hour workdays, or it could be because the weather here has been so dreary (and yes, I'm in Florida, and no, I don't know wh... Read more
I'm a Sparkpeople success story?
Thursday, February 20, 2014 7 comments
Yesterday morning I received an email from Sparkpeople, asking if they could include me as one of their success stories. I had a very mixed response to it. On one hand, I was extremely flattered and proud. I've been on here for a lon... Read more

Well, my size 10 pants are feeling snug. This was a downer because a year ago, this same style/size pant used to feel far too loose after wearing them for just a few hours, so I reserved them for when my size 8s were dirty. Now my size 8s don't ... Read more

I did my first half-marathon yesterday. I was terrified. Thanks to the flu, my fitness center closing, and the weather being all kinds of freaky in the past month, I had only gone out running 3 times in the month before the race. To make matters... Read more

Well, I feel like I've lost all the headway I'd gained in my journey to having healthy self-esteem. In November, my relationship ended. It was the first breakup in a long time where I wasn't the one initiating the break-up, and it was the ... Read more

This entry is going to be a little bit darker in tone than my usual posts, which I try to avoid because I don't want to send negative messages to newer people who may stumble upon this little speck of the interwebz, but I also hope that it helps... Read more
Conquering the salad mentality.

Something strange and lovely happened to me last week. I was minding my own business, procrastinating on Facebook, and I got a message from a girl who lives in a completely different city than me. We had no mutual friends, there was literally no... Read more
some clean eating fridge/pantry staples
Monday, August 12, 2013 5 comments
Whenever I tell people I try to eat clean, they do one of two things: a) blankly stare at me while probably envisioning me violently scrubbing all my food before consumption b) tell me I must spend a lot of money of food. Regar... Read more
Some hard realizations...
Sunday, July 28, 2013 12 comments
So as I mentioned in my last entry, I went to visit/meet my boyfriend's family last week. And as I had feared, we ended up encountering his ex girlfriend. This encounter made me realize some pretty important things. I'm secure in my relati... Read more
