On the pursuit of happiness

April 10, 2014

Wow, so it's been a while, eh Spark? Goodness. I was trying this whole doing-it-myself thing and it was going okay! But this past December, I lost my best friend and the woman who made me who I am, my grandmother. The stress of starting a masters program with her sick led to a good 15 pound gain and I have come to realize that I need my sparkbudz at my side to get where I want to go.

So hi! Want to be my friend?

I'm Lucy, I'm 26 and STILL IN UNIVERSITY (I only say this in this tone cuz every time I've edited this page it's said that.. forever...). I'm an unemployed teacher, thanks Ontario, and pursuing my masters of education at the moment and eyeing doctoral studies for the future.

A few years ago, I started this crazy thing called Learning to Love Myself. It's still a work in progress but that's my main goal. The weight is up there too but I don't want to slip into the trap of hating myself when/if the scale doesn't move.

Um I'm super swell so let's be friends!



"Our running shoes are really erasers. Every step erases a memory of a past failure. Every mile brings us closer to a clean slate. Each footstrike rubs away a word, a look, or an event, which led us to believe that success is beyond our grasp."

Hey! Thanks for stopping by! I absolutely agree... the first run is always the hardest for me too. Week 2 went pretty well; I'm onto week 3 now. Day 2 is scheduled for my lunchtime workout today! I'm a treadmill runner for now... would like to move it outside, but want to get solid results on the treadmill before I add another dimension, as it were.

How was your weekend in Winnipeg? Did you get any running in?
