Resolutions shouldn’t just happen on “New Years”. And no, you shouldn’t “wait until Monday” to start
Thursday, January 03, 2019      4 comments

We can set goals for New Years, I do feel it's a good thing to practice (especially goals that are not JUST about diet and exercise.), however, when we start “declaring” that this year WILL be better than the previous, we’re more than likely set... Read more

This is not easy to admit, and is written mostly through tears. It began creeping back in a few weeks ago, it was subtle, as it always is. I felt myself becoming increasingly more tired, followed by less enthusiasm, more brain fog, easily a... Read more
When the Light breaks through
Monday, August 20, 2018      7 comments

The last year has been one of the darkest I’ve had in my life, and this last April was the worst I’ve ever been. There was no light. Not even a spark. There was no hope. The darkness wouldn’t lift. The pain wouldn’t end and I was... Read more

This is an honest dialogue I’ve had in my mind a lot lately... not some “women’s empowerment” entry. Why am I so fixated on who I am not? It takes so much of my energy, ALL day long. I want to be skinny again, to be really fit again, t... Read more

Tuesday, December 05, 2017      2 comments

Letting go is hard - like Tom Hanks knocking out a sore, infected tooth - with an ice skate - on an island - alone - HARD. Because it’s scary. Because it’s painful. And because you have to do it on your own. It’s easier to just stay in contr... Read more

I had just started out on a popular nature trail for my run when I saw her... I was coming down a steep hill and there she was at the bottom, sweaty, with her phone in the air trying to get a selfie of the hard work she put in. And then it happ... Read more
When it's just not working.
Wednesday, May 17, 2017      4 comments

Starting over is hard, what's even harder is realizing and embracing the fact that you can't just exercise the weight off. Ugh. Despite going through this before already, I apparently developed the idea that if I ran and ran and ate "... Read more

Thursday, March 17, 2016      4 comments

I had been beating myself up, this pregnancy just didn't seem to be going how I wanted or had planned. I was trying to be active, but it wasn't showing like my previous pregnancy. I was trying to be healthy throughout but it just seemed as if th... Read more

I'm just a couple short months away from it being a year since I was "officially" diagnosed with depression but the symptoms have been around going on two years. Why a years difference? Because of denial when it was mentioned as a likely possibi... Read more
