Depression and Comic Con Motivation
Monday, August 07, 2017      4 comments

I'm having a rough time with depression lately. Today was very bad, especially this evening. My back pain and slight nausea certainly aren't helping. I was supposed to do dishes today and I really need to get them done soon before they pile up a... Read more

Try #4-Firefox has dumped my blog-in-progress three times now! I do NOT want to type this on my iPad so it better behave this time! As you can probably tell from the title of this blog, today is not a good day for me, but it's not all bad e... Read more

I'm typing this on my iPad so we'll see how it goes. I hate typing on my iPad, but I felt like making a blog and I didn't feel like getting my laptop out. Originally, I felt like going to bed, listening to podcasts, and falling asleep. However, ... Read more

Monday, January 18, 2016      6 comments

Yesterday, I had a major give-up moment. My mom broke her ankle falling on some ice so she asked for my help in making a chocolate raspberry poke cake. I found myself eating a ridiculous amount of cake batter. It was like I couldn't stop. Seriou... Read more

My nearly 19,000 steps day
Sunday, June 07, 2015      6 comments

I got almost 19,000 steps yesterday, which is amazing! If I had noticed how close I was (23 steps away), I would have done a little more walking before I went to bed, but I didn’t sync or look at my fitbit until this morning. Most of those 18,97... Read more

Not doing well, but getting better starting NOW!
Wednesday, May 21, 2014      4 comments

I've been ignoring most of my May goals for most of the month. I simplified the goals so they would be reachable with all the chaos in my life right now, but then I didn't even put forth a good effort. Today I am doing better, and I plan to cont... Read more
