Post surgery update I had my surgery Tuesday morning. I got up super early. Took a shower, put my hair up in a cute bun and threw on crappy gym clothes. Got to the surgery center – I drove, my mom was still in zombie mode… sat around... Read more

I feel like I'm on speed. My brain is literally running 1000 thoughts a minute. This week has been busy. I am now technically on "vacation" from work until after Labor Day, but... I can't disconnect. Yesterday I submitted my first fell... Read more

My feet are still sore from Saturday. Apparently a 5k, 22,000 steps, and maybe not the right kind of shoes are all to blame. The week before the Color Run I did 3-10ks in distance (walking on a 5% incline). I was super frustrated with my ... Read more

I can't even begin to tell you all how much fun it was yesterday! The Color Run came to St. Louis, and St. Louis turned it into a party! I ended up only going with one of my friends, Nicole. Everyone bailed -- and they totally missed out. Bu... Read more

That's it. I'm putting a stop to this. -- waaaait, isn't that what I said yesterday? Well I didn't. I had a work picnic today, and there was a surprising lack of healthy options. Usually there's a fruit and veggie tray. Not this time. ... Read more
I am my own worst enemy.

I have come to the realization that I am my own worst enemy. We all have struggles -- and this weekend I caved. I caved hard. I overloaded my body with crap, felt like crap, and kept doing it. There was a bit of a downward, well f*** this spi... Read more

I'm back to experimenting with protein powders. I have a bunch of Biochem Whey protein powder -- it kind of tastes like cream of wheat to me. But with my dairy intolerance -- and a slow brain that forgot whey WAS dairy -- I have been trying ou... Read more

I have some random pictures to share. One is of my new cereal bowl. I've started eating organic golden grahams knock offs with soy milk as a post workout recovery, or a quick breakfast in the morning. I have my old cereal bowl (which let'... Read more
Better end to a day that started off annoying.

SO I blogged this morning at how annoyed I was with the scale. I seriously wanted to throw it (well not really, it was expensive) but I felt blindsided by the weigh-in. I stayed home today to edit other people's work from my lab. Also, I... Read more

I think my Monday weigh-ins might be doomed. My evil enemy, and former bestie of last week went back to that stupid number 180.4. Its a very specific number that keeps popping up. I think my digital scale must have a glitch that it weighs me ... Read more
