Why yes, it has been one year since my last blog post. If you’ve followed my blog from the beginning, you know that I’m not the most consistent blogger in the world. I try to put out quality posts (says the girl who once wrote a post called “People with no friends make me sad” and another called “Chicken fried waste“) that truly reflect where … Continue reading I’m back! And here’s what I’ve been up to…
I may be a millennial, but I think I’d survive without a smart phone. I spent all of January doing a Dumb Phone Challenge where I only used my phone for calling, texting, and a few other features. It went really well and I can honestly say I learned a lot from it. I don’t know how long it takes to form a habit–some say a … Continue reading Dumb Phone Challenge Recap
After I finished my half marathon, I contracted a serious case of the lazies. I did a lot of sitting, snacking, and TV-watching. I’m not mad about it–it was pretty fun while it lasted. However, having to purchase new (larger) jeans as a result of my laziness was not so fun. The good news is that I look incredible in my new, size 10 skinny jeans. The bad … Continue reading 10 out, 10 back
I did it! I ran a half marathon and I didn’t fall and break all my limbs. Although, my limbs did feel a lot like spaghetti when I was done. I feel so proud and accomplished. Let me share a little bit about the race. I ran the Ath Half, a half marathon that twists and turns around my beautiful city, Athens, Georgia. After my … Continue reading I signed up for a half marathon, then I ran it.
It has been approximately one million years since I have posted a running update. Here’s a quick list of excuses followed by an actual update: I never followed through on my post “I signed up for a half marathon, so now I have to run it” because I physically couldn’t run it. Thanks, food poisoning! But really… I got food poisoning two days before the … Continue reading I promise, I’m still running.
I did something really ridiculous and I signed up for a half marathon. I signed up so spontaneously that I didn’t even consider if I had enough time to train (technically I didn’t, by the way). The big day is March 8th. I am running the San Diego Half Marathon in sunny California. Though I may never know what actually caused me to sign up … Continue reading I signed up for a half marathon, so now I have to run it.
If my life looked anything like my Pinterest Boards, I would be the coolest freaking human alive. I would cook the most epic vegan meals and treats, go on the most kickass vacations, be able to bend into the most insane yoga poses, and put together the most incredible ensembles from my minimalist wardrobe. As it turns out, I am half-assing everything on my Pinterest page. … Continue reading 50 Piece Wardrobe
Chub rub. Chafing. Thigh interaction. Thigh snuggling. No matter what you call it, the awful rubbing of your legs when you exercise is the absolute worst. In fact, it sucks when I’m not exercising too. Of course, there are tons of little tricks people use to avoid the terrible touch of one thigh to another. My favorite were bike shorts underneath dresses and/or baby powder to make the … Continue reading Who wears short shorts?
It’s almost the end of my 30 Days of Motivation and I’m feeling great (but also kind of bloated today because of my stupid girl body). I can definitely see some improvements in my performance and my attitude so I can already say that this month was effective. The one thing I can’t say just yet is whether or not this month will provide me … Continue reading 30 Days: Personalized Rules
This morning I participated in my third race (second one this month). It was a 5K that I wanted to participate in to support my friend’s organization to benefit my university’s speech and hearing clinic. I have been keeping up with running (51.2 miles this month!) and I feel confident in my ability to stick with this. I don’t fear another plateau but I know I need … Continue reading 30 Days: Small steps
