I follow an account called Fitness Motivation on twitter (@fitnessxM), which tweeted this the other day: "You don't need a 2-hour workout to make a difference. Work as hard as you can in 30 minutes and still be proud of yourself." For the ... Read more

Freaking out a little

Thursday, January 15, 2015      2 comments

I am panicking a little about the reality that the cardio kickboxing class I do now comes nowhere close to being as awesome a core workout as TurboKick was. I have no Idea how to compensate for that. I am trying to be creative with modifications... Read more

Something that I do to keep my head on straight is ask myself "did you fight for all this progress just to let it slip away?" Examples include... 1) Is this why you ran, and walked to and from work and the gym, in the heat all summer? 2) ... Read more

I am so sick of losing things. The latest item to disappear was the necklace my brother gave me last Christmas, which I took off at the gym on Monday night and haven't seen since. I probably put it in my bag and then dropped it somewhere on the ... Read more

Dear Feet: I know that I have said a lot of uncomplimentary things about you, like "why can't I have cute dainty little feet?" or "my toes are shaped so weird." I would like to apologize for those unkind words and say THANK YOU SO MUCH for... Read more

Came across something I wrote last spring

Friday, January 02, 2015      0 comments

I haven't kept "a journal" in years but from time to time I do write, typically just to get intrusive thoughts out of my head. I wrote this last spring when I was preparing for the interview that landed me my current job, apparently shortly afte... Read more
