so i ran the celtic solstice 5 miler again last weekend! i didn't have any concrete goals since i haven't been running regularly. i just wanted to see if i could run at least half the time and get through it without crawling! well, i did both. i... Read more
time for a list of milestones!
if you've read my blogs for any length of time, you've probably figured out that i like lists. i don't know why i find lists so effective at reinforcing my resolve, but i do! i guess sometimes it's just good to take stock of where you are and wh... Read more
i went to the gym yesterday! and ran 1.5 miles on the treadmill! and lifted weights! woo hoo!... Read more
i think i need a pick-me-up
so, for whatever reason, i'm having a bit of a hard time lately. i can't put my finger on it. work's going pretty well, things at home are pretty good, my eating habits have been super good, the depression's as minimal as it's been in the past f... Read more
rational vs. emotional eating
i made it to the gym on tuesday! it all felt pretty good. i ran on the treadmill for 20 minutes or so (ran/walked intervals) and did some free weights. it was a little hard, but not like i would have expected. i guess i've been for a jog here an... Read more

first 10% gone!
so, i was feeling skinny today. i've been holding off on weighing in because things have been a little rough lately, and i wanted to get a workout or two under my belt first. i didn't want to be discouraged if i wasn't making progress. but, i de... Read more
i am a big believer in not making excuses. things are what they are, and we can only do so much. well, i've had a rough couple of weeks, and i haven't been able to do much beyond keeping my head above water. through choice and chance, i ended up... Read more
just a little down
feeling kind of negative tonight, so i'll keep this brief. i've just finished up a marathon string of shifts at work. i lost a patient today, which was really upsetting. i'm pretty good now at not getting invested, but some people slip through. ... Read more
keeping it together
so, yesterday was going to be my day off, but i ended up getting called in to work. added to my regular schedule this week, that means working 7a-7:30p four days in a row. ick! during a stretch like that, i have to focus just on getting good nut... Read more

taking the first steps (again)
it's been a good couple of days. i've had some downtime, which is a nice change. i should be at work right now except i got called off! i've used the extra evening so far to get some things done around the house. after i'm done sparking, i'll go... Read more
things are going well. i finally got my calories up yesterday (not something i ever thought i'd have trouble doing!) and got a decent amount of sleep. i'm not feeling super energetic, but i feel calm and even-keeled. i think that's even better. ... Read more
my energy levels have been super low lately. whenever this happens, i try to figure out the cause. but, there are so many possibilities--working night shift, depression, meds, getting sick, not sleeping well, not eating right, etc.--that it's di... Read more
