Putting My Own Health First

Hello, dear readers! As I promised in my last weekly update post, I wanted to expand a little bit more on how my goal went to actually start working out again went last week. You see, I was doing really well, making working out a part of my lifestyle, until roughly last September/October. I fell… Continue reading Putting My Own Health First

Pressure, Time and Focus: Messing Up in Trifecta

Hello, dear readers! Apparently I'm on a kick, because I want to write more about pressure today. I wrote about it in terms of some financial aspects of writing last week, but over the weekend, I realized that over the course of last year, I unconsciously placed a lot of pressure upon myself that was… Continue reading Pressure, Time and Focus: Messing Up in Trifecta

The Only Problem Is (Probably) Myself

Hey there, lovelies. So, you might know that, in November of 2016, I started running, which really changed a lot of things about my life. Not only did it help me find a different way to manage stress, but it also helped me lose weight (something I'd never been able to pull off), get active… Continue reading The Only Problem Is (Probably) Myself

Weird Moods, Weird Thoughts

I'm in kind of a weird mood tonight, friends, so just hang on with me on this one. This week has been...kinda weird, I guess? Overall, it's been pretty good. In some ways, I've been productive: blogging, paying the bills, catching up on some backlogged ARCs. But in other ways--I'd argue two of the most… Continue reading Weird Moods, Weird Thoughts

Reframing My Focus

I think I need to change my mindset when it comes to working out. This past summer, I pretty much...didn't. I had the time, even though my schedule was a little wonky, constantly changing and different from usual, messing up my routine. But even still, it wasn't a priority, like it should have been; like… Continue reading Reframing My Focus

Off Again, On Again

Hello, lovelies! Gosh, it has been a hot minute since I've written a post here on this blog. Or at least, it feels like it has. I don't think it's been as long in reality as my head believes it has been, but I've definitely missed writing personal posts on here. I've been amping it… Continue reading Off Again, On Again

Mastering That Mental Game

I've been thinking a lot of fitness, lately. About the journey I've undergone in the past--what this November will mark--two years. I'm really proud of what I've accomplished and where I've come from, the habits that I've built (and almost always follow) and everything I've learned since I decided I wanted to take my health… Continue reading Mastering That Mental Game

Run With It

Something really neat happened yesterday. On this new training routine that I've created, I run on Tuesdays and Thursdays, walking on Wednesdays while I do a weekly phone call date with the best friend, while I do strength training on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. This Tuesday, I ran, but I wasn't really feeling it. I… Continue reading Run With It

Start The Day Off Right

I say this a lot, but the brain? It's such a strange thing. My brain beats me up all of the time. It's one of my worst enemies and it doesn't stop, not even when it fights against itself. Lemme give you an example. I love sleep. I actually lost friendships over it, in college,… Continue reading Start The Day Off Right

Just That Mental Game

I'm pretty sure I've written about this topic before, so I'll try not to rant about it too much here. But, you know me: when I need to get something off my chest, half the time, if I don't blog about it, then it ends up festering, and that's not helpful or enjoyable for anyone… Continue reading Just That Mental Game
