Sorry for the onslaught of blogs today. I wanted to talk about what's going on with me physically, but I can't separate it from what's going on mentally, so I just wanted to update this page with all of the thoughts that have gone through my hea... Read more
What Are You So Afraid Of?
Wednesday, July 22, 2015      6 comments

I’ve been asking myself this question lately. Examining my motives and why I make the choices that I do. A friend of mine asked me why I don’t ride my bike as much, and I gave this rambling, honest answer of “well, I used to but now I’m ... Read more
Control 7/11
Wednesday, July 22, 2015      0 comments

It’s really interesting to me how I use control to make myself feel better. When I’m feeling desperate, anxious, worthless and wholly out of control, I do everything that I can to exert control over the things in my life. When I feel ou... Read more
Freedom 7/6
Wednesday, July 22, 2015      0 comments

The past few days I’ve been feeling incredibly free–free to be myself, free to accept my flaws and be accepting of others. I feel incredibly light as I’ve slowly been giving away the burdens and misconceptions that I’ve heaped on myself ... Read more
Spoken & Unspoken 7/2
Wednesday, July 22, 2015      0 comments

In this book I’m reading, the author has been hitting on some key points that I’ve been mulling over in my head. She talks about being a teenager and of noticing that the “beautiful girl” got the attention not only from the boys, but als... Read more
Finding Truth 7/1
Wednesday, July 22, 2015      1 comments

One of my goals for the next two months is to write/pray/meditate everyday. One of the most important things to me has been my faith. My faith has brought me out of a lot of dark places of anxiety and depression, and it’s the one thing that I ... Read more
Moving Away...
Monday, May 18, 2015      1 comments

I have a special love for spark people, but have found that there are other avenues that I'm using to record/track my journey. Occasionally I'll pop on here and update with a blog or two, but all of my writing (not just fitness related) is on my... Read more
The Happiness Project
Monday, May 18, 2015      2 comments

I took a little mini vacation this past weekend to clear my mind, to refocus, and really, to do something for myself. It was my first solo trip and I went somewhere I’ve never been–Vancouver, BC. Granted, it’s not too foreign, but it was d... Read more
Pick Up The Pieces
Monday, May 18, 2015      2 comments

This has been such an interesting year for me. I feel like this past year has been so enlightening as far as finding out who I am and who I want to be as a person. I’m recognizing my own failures, insecurities, and humanness, and I’m also re... Read more
Whole30: The aftermath
Thursday, April 09, 2015      0 comments

So it’s ten days post whole30, and one thing I was really scared about was how my relationship was going to be with food after whole30. I have to admit I was a bit nervous to start introducing foods back into my system—would I feel sick, wou... Read more
Whole30 Recap
Tuesday, March 31, 2015      3 comments

This month I did something I never thought I would do: the whole30. There were many reasons why I didn’t want to do it: I don’t like restrictive eating plans, I didn’t feel confident as a cook, I had no IDEA what I could cook, and I don’... Read more
1/3 of the way through!
Thursday, March 12, 2015      0 comments

I've been really enjoying Whole30. It definitely hasn't been the "deprivation" experience that I thought it would be. Don't get me wrong...I miss cookies...and cakes...and candy. I still like those things, and I think I always will. There's noth... Read more
NSVs!
Monday, March 09, 2015      3 comments

This month of Whole30 FORBIDS me from getting back on the scale. Can you believe it? If I weight myself it says I should start over. Um, no thanks! So, here I am done with the first week and no weigh in whatsoever. Which leaves me with some NSVs... Read more
Whole30!
Sunday, March 08, 2015      3 comments

So it's been a hot minute since I've been on here. I was trying to be pretty active and post regularly, but I got myself in a bit of a situation--mainly I started the Whole30 cleanse this Monday! A friend of mine who did it before mentioned she ... Read more
Am I Enough?
Sunday, March 01, 2015      5 comments

So my roommate posted this Ted Talk (see bottom of the page. 20 minutes well worth it!!) with Brene Brown a few days ago, and it totally blew my mind. Ive been trying to put into words the changes that Im starting to see in myself this year wi... Read more
