Be Happy

“Happy looks good on you” – no joke I heard that today. And I was taken back but then realized, yup this is how it feels. I’m happy. I’m not happy all the time. I don’t know anyone that is – but I’ll be the first to admit it. I’m not happy with my body,…

Commentary From Mile 7

Now that I’ve had a chance to recover (slightly), I wanted to share my experience and all that has been going on lately. I think I can consider myself a runner at this point. I know I don’t look like a runner but yesterday, I completed my second half marathon. I’ve completed twelve 5K races,…

Goal Getter

Goal Getter   You don’t drown by falling into the water, you drown by staying there. I want to change everything and nothing all at once.  What if things stay the same? What if they don’t? What if? What’s bothering you?  What do you want to change?     I listened to an audio book…

My why

Sometimes I run to burn off the crazy. I know I’ve said it before, I reach this doormat breaking point.  Doing everything, for everyone and realize I’m stuck in this hole and can’t climb out of it and that’s when I realize – I need to exercise. It’s a vicious cycle – Overworked, stressed out,…

Detachment

The biggest failure in any relationship is unsaid expectations. I’m not easy to love. I’m challenging, sensitive, and emotional.

Keto what?

Who thought it would be a good idea to give up coffee alcohol and carbs all in the same day?! That was a little tough! April 22nd I took the plunge and started embarking on a keto lifestyle. The idea is to eat fewer than 20 grams of carbs per day putting your body I…

Two years

I think when life is stressful I start grasping at things I can control. And it drives me crazy – because there are SO MANY things completely out of my control. You can decide how you feel regardless of your circumstances, and I chose love over everything.  It’s been a tough few months, but I’m…

Sundaying

Weekend warriors A Sunday well spent bring a week of content…or chaos one of those It’s hard to find balance there’s so much to be accomplished on the weekends and I don’t want to sacrifice time with my kids doing fun things too. But we find a way to conquer it all. I ask a lot of…

Hello Spring

Spring – what a wonderful opportunity for a new beginning. New mindset. Every experience has brought me to where I am in this very moment. It’s finally thawing out (or so it feels) here this week and I couldn’t help but have a smile on my face as I was riding around running errands for…
