Spring Break 2017
Wednesday, March 15, 2017      1 comments

I'm on my first spring break since 1995. My life feels surreal. Am I really in school? Again? Is it really a year since my dad is gone? Is it really 20 degrees out? Nothing seems real lately. It's a haze of 16 credits and the fact that my dad is... Read more
The search for a purpose...
Monday, March 02, 2015      1 comments

2014 was a dynamic year for me. Losing my job really shook my life up. I knew it was coming - that the place I'd call home (pretty much) for the past 12 years was going to throw me out on the street, but the universe has a plan. For 12 year... Read more
How coffee cake is like the gym...kinda
Friday, November 15, 2013      1 comments

I always read and repeat to anyone who will listen, "Everything in moderation." Because elimination leads to deprivation which leads to bingeing. So if I only have a LITTLE of something, I won't feel deprived and want to binge on it. And I don't... Read more
Failing does not always mean failure

25 days ago, I had an epiphany. The seeds for it started sprouting about a week before but I'm not 100% sure what got it started. I took a long, deep look into my life and really SAW. I saw how I've been lying to myself. I realized that lo... Read more

Hello? Motivation? Where are you?
Tuesday, October 02, 2012      1 comments

It has been SO HARD for me to get motivated lately. I know two influential factors are my job and the fact that race season is over (ties into winter coming...). Take this morning, for example. I truly wanted to crawl back into bed. If my ... Read more
2012 Racing Season
Monday, September 17, 2012      0 comments

Saturday was my last race of the season. I must admit that normally I am THRILLED to not have to swim, bike, or run but this year is different and I'm not really sure why. Normally I am psyched to hang up my bike and put away the swim gear until... Read more
Facing My Fear
Tuesday, September 11, 2012      0 comments

Sunday I competed in the Mighty Hamptons Olympic Distance Triathlon. This was my third time participating in this even - I did it back in 2008 and 2009. In 2009, I didn't train properly and I suffered through the entire 10K, walking most of it w... Read more
My Body as a Canvas
Saturday, September 01, 2012      1 comments

The idea of my body as a canvas started with my tattoo. People invariably say how big they think it is (and it IS big) and ask why I went with something that size. I wanted a... Read more
Poison
Monday, May 07, 2012      1 comments

I ate like crap this weekend and I feel like I've ingested poison. It's an interesting feeling...I feel toxic. I'm working hard on not beating myself up for it and I'm doing a decent job of it. I've also been focusing on eating the right stuff t... Read more
You can't out-train a bad diet...
Wednesday, April 25, 2012      1 comments

I saw this on Pinterest and I had to repin it because I HATE that it's 100% true. I am a perfect example of it. I totally believe in moderation - I don't plan on ever giving anything up entirely, but I do have a tendency to indulge at times even... Read more
Season Opener
Tuesday, April 03, 2012      0 comments

My first race is on April 14th. I love that race not only because it's a trail run and I LOVE trail running, but because it opens my race season. Many people race all year long and if I lived in Florida or someplace warm, I'm sure I'd be one of ... Read more
Go Google Yourself...
Tuesday, March 27, 2012      4 comments

Go ahead...do it...see what you find. I did it yesterday. I was disturbed by the offer to run a complete background check on me for only $39.95 (don't I need a sign release form to do that legally?). I also found my complete address and age... Read more

This has been the craziest week EVER. I had the best and worst week of all time at the office. I am so excited for vacation - i cannot WAIT to be in the warm weather, not having a schedule, doing whatever I want whenever I want.... Read more

I will be heading to Florida in a little over two weeks and I am SUPER psyched!! I am excited to see my parents but I'm a little concerned about what their reaction will be to my enormous half naked mermaid tattoo. I'm excited she will finally b... Read more
