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

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

One of the Neatest Things

Since last November, I've lost 19 pounds. That's something I never thought I'd write, let alone be my reality. It is...one of the neatest things.

Hiccups

Life is full of them; hiccups, I mean. Of course, this post is tailored to a specific hiccup in my current life--two, actually, if we want to be more precise: hiccups in running and in writing. You see, both are commitments that I have made to myself to do consistently, because they are important to… Continue reading Hiccups
