Hello July/Goodbye July
I actually can't believe it's almost August. I read this thing a few weeks ago basically stating that the reason you feel like time passes so quickly when you're older is because, technically, it does. You have more years to reflect on rather th... Read more
Now, I live in LA
Wow. A lot has happened since I've been on here. Not even in the actual time sense, but even in the amount of time I've been gone, there's been a lot packed into that period.
I graduated college last month, moved to LA, an... Read more
Gah, I love Trader Joe's. And other randoms.
I finally have a day off to blog again and I wanted to update you all on my progress. So, I've been going through a pretty tough transitioning phase in my life right now. I'm finishing school in another state, which is now my new ... Read more
Finally injury-free, kale, and three years of spark
I went to the gym for the first time in awhile, and the first time in LA, last night. It was pretty nice, admittedly smaller than the one at school, but workable nonetheless. I even swam after in the beautiful salt water pool in my complex after... Read more
Sciatica, moving, and the "all or nothing" approach
Once again, I stick my head in to say hey!
I have to be honest, I haven't been working out much. I tried to really get back into it a month ago and I lasted one day. Not because I quit, but because I hurt my back so badly during a workout t... Read more
Once again, I've been MIA from blogging on here. I won't make any promises as to how often I think I can blog, but I *will* say I am getting pretty good at life recently (responding to personal emails, planning my days in my agenda and such) so ... Read more
Take me back please
This is a weird entry because it's motivational and sad lol.
I weighed myself this morning - 217.
So many emotions happen when first I see the 2-prefix to my weight. I had said last year that after working so hard to get away from tha... Read more
I haven't had much time to blog on here but I want to use this free moment!
I've been slacking - the gym hasn't seen me in a month and that's something I hate to admit. This job with orientation is a lot more demanding over those three days... Read more
I don't even know what day it is here in Boston
Being in Boston during this extremely stressful and horrific week has had me off my game. I've been either not eating or stress eating; sleeping all day to avoid the news or not being able to sleep at all...
I hate to start my habit over, b... Read more
Day 4: Yikes.
First of all, I pulled my back brushing my teeth this morning.
My luck is nottt there. I have a pretty weak lower back (I've had it since I was 16 and started working; basically so many hours on my feet my body wasn't used to it I guess and... Read more
I love Tuesday mornings! I don't have class until 2pm and I have the entire morning and some of the afternoon to get my life together slowly. It reminds me of a Sunday sort of.
This morning, I'm going to the gym with my friend Leila since ... Read more
Womp womp womp. Day 1.
I hate to tell you guys, but I have to start the habit again today. Not much time to write and explain, but long story short:
I went on my retreat as I wrote about Friday-Saturday and there were no regular eating times or good, healthy choi... Read more
Habit: Day 2...and are you doing it?
Question: is anyone else going to try to do something regarding habit? Even if it's just a habit of taking a huge water bottle around and having it all gone by a certain time? I think it's a cool thing to try because it really works if you do it... Read more
Habit: Day 1
Right after the entry I posted about a week ago, I got sick. Awesomeee.
I haven't done anything all week except sleep and eat, or sometimes not be in the mood to eat at all (at least in the first few days of my cold), which are both equally... Read more
This is going to be a longgg one
Good morning sparkers!
I'm really glad to be back on the site and back to working toward my original goal: mastering a healthy lifestyle and maintaining a healthy weight simultaneously. Where do I even begin?
I know I said some of this... Read more
