I have been in a fight with the scale. I want him to be more flexible, he's a stubborn man who is staying put. And y'all, it is getting more frustrating by the day. The woman pictured above adequately portrays my dismay (and old age). My exercise has been steady and good. The eating has … Continue reading 9/10 of a Dalmatian
I will say this, while the scale is holding firm at 39% approval rating, I do feel like I'm accomplishing something mentally with this running challenge I've put myself up to.
Okay, so May is over, and can I just say covfefe? You know what I mean. Side note, I think I'm going to stop watching the news. All of it. I am choosing to exist in a world with no current affairs updates...gonna add that to the June goals. I promised to be honest with my … Continue reading Mother May I?
I discovered last week that it is difficult to write about being healthy and losing weight when you aren't losing weight. I could have written a "this is all so stupid" blog and "what is the point of any of this?" blog, but I don't think that would help any of us. Instead I whined … Continue reading Keep the Change
Time to check in on my progress, yes? I've been refocused for three whole weeks and I'm 16 days into my May Goals. So this is where we are, and by we I mean me and the inner me who loves salty snacks and being lazy. I'm down 6 pounds in 3 weeks. That was … Continue reading Progress Report

And for the record, I don't understand this picture, but I think it is hysterical. I feel you tomato. I've been there. Give me a call, girl. We … Continue reading The Lonely Instability of Grief
So I did it. Three races in three consecutive weekends. To say I fell short of my initial goals would be a pretty big understatement. But I did end on a high note. Thanks to lots of insight, I laced my shoes differently, wore compression sleeves on my calves, wore thinner socks and stretched my … Continue reading My thoughts are racing
We recently returned from a quick vacation to Arizona, the Valley of the Sun as the natives and midwesterners who moved there to avoid snow call it. Whatever the opposite of a cleanse is, that's what our vacation was. A mess? A dirty? We fully participated in a master mess. So upon returning 3 lbs. … Continue reading Gooooooooooal
I've now done three CYCLEBAR classes. I've reached expert level. If they ask me to guest teach, I won't be surprised. I'm working on my playlist as we speak. Please consider the following my official review of indoor cycling and why you should be doing it too. I tiptoed into spinning maybe six months ago. There … Continue reading Spinning. Out of Control.
I'm not going to let a set back make me a quitter, that would make me a certain Golden State Warrior. I'm the middle-aged, suburban Russell Westbrook. I will get better...and scream in your face as I do it.
