Exercise fixes so much...

Wednesday, November 25, 2015      0 comments

No matter how much I may try to talk myself out of it, I always end up feeling better afterward: more centered, calmer, balanced. I have to wonder if one of the contributing factors to so many people suffering from anxiety disorders is bec... Read more

Ups and downs are natural

I'm feeling crappy and less-than-motivated lately. I think a lot of people - myself included - get wrapped up in feeling sorry for ourselves. We feel a bit like victims... like life is happening *to* us. Where that is true to an extent - ... Read more

My foot is definitely getting better. I still have moments where it's giving me fits, but those are much fewer and far-between. I'm going to give myself another week of crosstraining with no running, and then I'm going to try to get back to it... Read more

I have good days and bad days with my foot... which is an improvement because at least there are good days now. COME ON, FOOT. YOU GOTTA HEAL SO I CAN GET BACK OUT THERE. So, I'm doing P90X again until I can get my foot back. I had to mo... Read more

And boom, just like that, a goalpoast manifests itself in my life!! :) I got tapped to go to callback auditions for "Gypsy" because the director didn't get a very wide pool of people for it. I'm pleased because after the last audition I h... Read more

Doing what I can with what I've got

This morning, I got up and did a barre workout. As I worked out, I found myself staring longingly outside at the beautiful sunrise... MAN I MISS RUNNING. STUPID FOOT! All the same, I feel good that I worked out. Something ... Read more

Ugh, bummer.

So I've made the decision that the plantar fasciitis is just not healing, and that's because I keep reaggravating it by running on it. Here's the thing: I don't think the running *caused* it. I began to first feel the first little bits of... Read more

Doing something different this Txgiving

So I recently started singing in a church choir. This is a little weird because I'm not even a Christian, but I'm the type of person who is not religious at all but can find spiritual education and enrichment just about anywhere I go. My o... Read more

Good ol' P90X

Saturday, November 07, 2015      3 comments

You really can't beat it for results. It really is all it is cracked up to be. I have some of the iterations that came afterward, but truly - nothing works as fast and as well as the original. So I mentioned that I've been having some pes... Read more

I am a stubborn bull.

I am very much a Taurus. Whether or not you believe in such things (I happen to), if you look at what the description of a Taurus is... that's basically me. Add a dash of Aries because I'm technically on the cusp (April 23), but all the ... Read more

Happy Wake-Up!

I don't think I've ever raved about waking up in the morning. Let's face it, nobody really likes getting jolted up out of bed, especially when it's cold and dark. You guys. I have arrived at the best-kept secret in waking-up technology. ... Read more

Naming it and claiming it

I weighed in at 150 this morning - 15 lbs away from my long-term goal! WOO HOO!! Interestingly, because I am 5'3", my BMI is still "unhealthy" at 26.6. That's... kind of crazy. I feel fantastic, and my bloodwork numbers are all letter-pe... Read more

Need morning help

Wednesday, October 21, 2015      1 comments

So kickboxing never happened last night. By the time I got done solving dinner and picking up my prescription, it was already 7:00 and I was starving... so I ate and figured I'd give myself an hour to digest. Yeah, I fell asleep. Not co... Read more

Running shouldn't feel THAT good!

Tuesday, October 20, 2015      4 comments

But last night, it did! I went out for a run last night not really knowing what to expect after my craptastic run on Friday. I decided I was just going to go out there and do a minimum of three miles. As I began running, the sun had j... Read more

Uterus is trying to kill me from the inside

Friday, October 16, 2015      2 comments

Well, yeah, so what else is new? Anyway, I just attempted a three-mile run... only got to 2.25, but I am not beating myself up about it. This is the worst my cramps have been in a long while; in fact, I stayed home from work today because ... Read more
