One Month
Tuesday, June 16, 2020      1 comments

Today is the one month anniversary of my little brother's death. It has been a very difficult month. In fact, I have been thinking about how much has happened this spring, and I can't believe how much my life has changed. Some of the chang... Read more
Day 20
Friday, June 05, 2020      3 comments

It has been 20 days since my little brother died. His funeral was last Tuesday. I suppose at some point, I will quit counting the days. I can't quite help it though. It is still too new. It's still the overwhelming thing in my family. ... Read more
Great Big Rainbow World the Musical
Tuesday, November 05, 2019      1 comments

Last night, I was able to go to a staged reading of Great Big Rainbow World the Musical. It's a lesbian rugby coming-of-age love story, and it's absolutely wonderful. I've been hearing snippets of songs for months, and I was really excited about... Read more
Cholesterol
Monday, November 04, 2019      5 comments

This morning, I opened SparkPeople, and I was quite bothered by what I saw. Before I could get to my content, there was an advertisement for eggs. And it proclaims, "a healthy start to your day!" or something along those lines. Well,... Read more
Behind The Scenes
Sunday, November 03, 2019      2 comments

Wow! I had a great day yesterday working behind the scenes on a movie. Specifically, I helped with craft services, and took behind the scenes photos! It was a LOT of fun. It wasn't as active of a day as I would have liked, and there ... Read more
Motivation?
Wednesday, October 30, 2019      3 comments

The last two days have been really rough for me. I'm not sure what's going on, but I've been really depressed. I've also had headaches. Well, nothing makes me want to move less than a headache! But I feel pretty good today. My headache is ... Read more
Grocery Shopping
Sunday, October 27, 2019      2 comments

I met my step goal today! But I met it exclusively through shopping, which I find to be absolutely exhausting. What is it about shopping that is so much harder on you that walking or hiking? My ankles, feet, and knees are all sore! I... Read more
Meeting my step goal
Thursday, October 24, 2019      2 comments

Every Wednesday, I get an email from fitbit that tells me about my activity for the past week. It lays out every day, and how many steps you had, and your "best day." This week, for the first time, my "best day" didn't meet my step goal. I ... Read more
Job Search
Wednesday, October 23, 2019      9 comments

I'm feeling a lot of stress in looking for a job. I've actually been able to stay pretty calm. I quit my last job without having another job lined up. I thought I would just be able to start temping and find something quickly, but it hasn'... Read more
Tapping for Weight Loss
Friday, October 18, 2019      4 comments

I just started reading Jessica Ortner's book about EFT tapping for weight loss. So far, it's really good. I'm really excited, and I'm even looking into joining a gym for the first time in years! And excited to do it! I think I found a good... Read more
My new goal
Friday, April 19, 2019      4 comments

My new goal is to hit my walking goal every day, and then be able to increase it. I currently have a step goal of 5500 and I don't meet it every day, which sucks. It only takes about 20-30 minutes of walking for me to do it! This week so f... Read more
Getting back into exercise
Wednesday, April 17, 2019      3 comments

I have found it very hard to get back into exercise. I made a mistake and had a workout buddy, and when we had a fight, I just stopped doing it. Yesterday, my coworker came and asked me if I'd like to go for a walk. It was so nice! I haven... Read more
Softball
Thursday, August 02, 2018      1 comments

We had our last softball game last night. For all of my complaints about it (it's too hot out, I'm too busy, etc), I am really going to miss it. However, softball is a big commitment: 12-13 weeks of nearly every week, playing at inconvenient tim... Read more
Crossing Against the Light
Tuesday, July 17, 2018      4 comments

I work at a busy intersection. There is a lot of traffic: cars, bikes, trucks. There is also a lot of foot traffic. While I was waiting to cross the street, I noticed someone on another corner also waiting for the light to change. He was i... Read more
Illness
Thursday, June 14, 2018      4 comments

I have really struggled this week with feeling ill and tired. It has made it very difficult to find the motivation to work out. I went for more walks while feeling yucky than I ever have before, which is great! But I think I will need to s... Read more
