I won the contest! They called me yesterday and officially named me Cheermeister! I'm super excited about it.
I now get to lead the pep rally on Thursday (10/6/16) night and attend a black tie Alumni Awards Gala Friday night. Saturday morn... Read more
I'm sorry I've been missing for two weeks.
The good news is that I'm alive and well.
In fact this weekend, I ran my September race to continue my streak of 23 months in a row running some sort of race.
In Augu... Read more
I've had a migraine since Sunday.
It just won't go away.
Have been trying to sleep it off to no avail.
Doctor has now suggested Magnesium Oxide tablets.
And I may check out getting a daith piercing which has helped some m... Read more
Exhibit A: Go on a weekend trip and forget your Fitbit Charger. It makes it a bit hard to track your steps.
However, this weekend was a wonderful celebration. J.D.'s grandpa turned 90 years old! I did a terrible job at tracking food.

Thanks for all the love on yesterday's blog. In case you missed it, I'm entering a contest to be Ohio University's biggest fan. I shared a link, but I think I have a better one today.

I'm not having a contest, I'm entering one!
Remember before my wedding how I entered a contest to win wedding stationary using a photo of J.D. and myself in the middle of Ohio University's football field? And I needed likes to make the fin... Read more
I'm sorry for my absence. I've just been struggling with coming up with anything to write lately.
I don't feel inspired. Or inspirational.
I mostly just feel blah.
I'm upset about how I feel I'm being treated at work. But rather... Read more
I'm kidding. I won't include any other horrible phrases.
That phrase popped up in my email at work today.
And I felt my body getting out of my chair and thought, "Why are you standing up, you don't need cheesecake."
And as I wal... Read more
When I joined SparkPeople, I was 22 years old.
Tomorrow will be my 27th birthday.
After my first year with SparkPeople, if you would have told me that I still wouldn't be at goal at age 27, I would have said you were crazy. I was on ... Read more
Warning ahead of time. This will be a very rambly (I don't think that's a word) blog.
Seriously, I'm about to be all over the place, so maybe get yourself a map.
So, yesterday I weighed back in at 213.8. Ugh. This whole lifestyle cha... Read more
I attempted to go back to work on Wednesday, and midway through the day, I started to get a pounding headache, so I returned to my family doctor's office. Although my doctor was out, the physician I saw suggested I take the r... Read more
Yesterday, J.D. and I went mountain biking. We'd been a few times previously, and I had enjoyed it. It's a little more exciting than just biking on the bike path.
Last night, J.D. took me to a new bike path that he'd been on a ... Read more
Some silence is truly deafening.
Over the past few weeks, the events in the U.S. have made me truly sad. And I find myself at a loss for words. One, because while I could mean well, many things I could say could hurt or offend others and t... Read more
First, I'm not entirely sure that I haven't already blogged about this, and I don't have the time to go back and read through my past few months, so if this is a repeat, I'm sorry.
How many of you have seen the movie Bridge of Spies?
