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
Thursday, November 14, 2013      1 comments

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
The Power of Positive Thinking
Wednesday, February 22, 2012      0 comments

I had my review last week and to no one's surprise, my key item to work on is my immediate negative reaction to things when they come up. This is REALLY hard for me to change. I've grown up this way - my parents are pretty negative people - and ... Read more
