Busy Weekend

Tuesday, June 30, 2015      11 comments

Sunday was the Mini Mega Adoption Event for the Animal Adoption Center (the animal shelter where I volunteer). I arrived at the shelter at 9:30 AM where I got lucky enough to "claim" little 5-month-old Blondie. Here she is napping on a blanket w... Read more

The Bad, the Good and the Awesome

Friday, June 26, 2015      9 comments

(This blog is brought to you by the entire Offspring album Smash because it's effing awesome. Period.) I've been super tired this week. I haven't wanted to go to work, and when I'm at work, I want to go home. No reason other than the air co... Read more

Good Weekend

Tuesday, June 23, 2015      9 comments

With Father's Day having been Sunday The Hubs and I were a little worried the two of us would be a bit gloomy (we have both lost our dads in the last 5 years) so we decided we'd go to a minor league baseball game on Father's Day to get us out of... Read more

Hammock Weather

Saturday, June 20, 2015      11 comments

(Ahhhh! This blog is brought to you by a song today! Can you believe it? It's been ages! Okay, so it's Maroon 5's "This Summer's Gonna Hurt Like A Motherf*****" because I can't stop listening to it and I'm not ashamed of that! Anything that make... Read more

Worthiness Quickie

Thursday, June 18, 2015      15 comments

I'm going to go back to doing affirmations if I can, but my breakthrough yesterday has really helped me realize a bunch of stuff about myself. I think it's less that I don't love myself (I do, actually) and more that I don't trust my own decisio... Read more

Being Worthy

Wednesday, June 17, 2015      11 comments

There hasn't been a ton to say in the food or fitness department these days. I haven't been perfect, but I haven't been bad either. But I know you won't mind when I tell you that this blog is about emotions and self-worth, because you really see... Read more

Haha, I Love The Universe

Thursday, June 11, 2015      13 comments

From my "A Note From the Universe" e-mail subscription: If I were a business professor and you were my student, Andrea, today's lesson might sound like this: In the "real" world, it's better to have loved and lost, tried and fail... Read more

Guess Who Has Two Thumbs and a Case of the Rambles?

Tuesday, June 09, 2015      9 comments

This gal! Quick recap since my last blog. I've been doing well with keeping my anxiety journal. I'm tracking anxiety levels on a 10 scale, my exercise, the weather, and the barometric pressure in hopes of seeing a pattern. I've only been t... Read more

Being My Own Anchor

Thursday, June 04, 2015      11 comments

Lots of stuff going on in my world this week. Nothing terrible. We got a letter informing us that our apartment complex wants to raise the rent AGAIN, another 4.5%, which would be the equivalent of about $150 a month. For the third year in... Read more

Cake Confession

Monday, June 01, 2015      15 comments

Remember back when my coworker Josh's wife (who is also named Andrea) made a pound cake and brought it over for St. Patty's Day? Remember that work was closed the next day so I stayed home and ate four pieces of cake? And remember (I don't thin... Read more

It's Only Stormy on the Outside

Thursday, May 28, 2015      10 comments

Today has been a good day. I set the alarm for 6 am, made coffee and goofed off until 6:30 when I ate a banana and got changed for my run. I did a good job planning the run so I didn't have to spend too much time during the 8 minute run segments... Read more

A Pretty Good Day

Sunday, May 24, 2015      8 comments

The Hubs has snagged a job in a different department at work, and his schedule has changed again, putting him back on the same days off as me! Since I JUST LAST MONTH got used to not having him around on my weekend, it's been an adjustment, and ... Read more

Thanks for all the wonderful comments on my body image blog "Untitled Blog"! I am so appreciative that it was received so well. I've written a blog about positive body image over on A Measured Life. You can find it here: Read more

Did I Pinpoint It?

Thursday, May 21, 2015      8 comments

I thought I'd been getting better emotionally. Last week was pretty good. The week before was pretty good, too. This week? EPIC CRASH. Sobbing during yoga in the morning (mornings are my worst times for my anxiety) and rainy/overcast/cool days d... Read more

Night and Day (IT'S MAH BIRFDAY)

Tuesday, May 19, 2015      16 comments

This day started out poorly. As many of you know, my emotions are incredibly affected by the weather. It's super annoying. This morning I woke up, not sad, but with tension. Like I wanted to cry for NO REASON. It was foggy and humid and generall... Read more
