Just doing a little check in, you know for **accountability.** I signed up for FIIT Bootcamp with the amazing Kali B. More than signing up, I showed up for the first class. More than showing up for the first day and busting my ass for nearly an hour, I showed up for the next class,… Continue reading Fitness Friday #wtf #4
In case anyone out there is thinking, "Hmmm. Maybe I'll just take a my dog for a walk. That'll be a fun workout. Plus safe, because dogs obviously. Let's do this." I am here to warn you... I laughed the first time I saw these dog leash instructions. Walking your dog can be very… Continue reading Fitness Friday #WTF #3
Hello World! I made it through winter, trudged through spring, now summer is upon us and I am freeeee! Prepare yourselves for an onslaught of posts. I have so many books to log, stories to tell, and fitness fiascoes to boast about (or not lol). Happy Monday!!! I found this pic here.
Well, today I had to give back my trophy. If you may recall, I made kind of a big deal out of completing a difficult task last week. I felt pretty accomplished and good and stuff about it. So, when I got called into the administrator's office today and asked about my sweet report I… Continue reading Trophy Take Back

Well, my glorious blogger people, I hit two personal records in the same week. Setting any humility that I may have aside, I will attempt to brag here a bit. Personal Record #1: I improved my personal best mile average with 2+ miles on the treadmill. Now, I don't mean to brag, but I started… Continue reading Lifetime Worst or Personal Best?
Wowza. This week has been an emotional roller coaster. Not my life. My life is perfectly stable and boring. But the books. Oh the books. First I read Bone Music (AWESOME btw) which is this strangely powerful book about overcoming anxiety, but in a psychological thriller kind of way. Way too cool. Like, so cool I… Continue reading Midweek Reading Update
When I read this quote earlier this week from Alice Hoffman, "Some people know the exact moment when they've lost everything. They can look back and see it plain as day and for the life of them they can't understand why didn't spot the situation as it was happening" in her book Here on Earth, it shot… Continue reading Cheers to the Gentlemen
I came across Everyday Strange's post featuring The Sound of Silence, a song by Simon and Garfunkel (one of my mom's favorites so of course it caught my attention). ES mentions that the song has been popping up again lately and connected the song to a figure skating video featuring Vanessa James and Morgan Cipres, a French… Continue reading Mindless Rambling.
