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

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

Run With It

Something really neat happened yesterday.

Including cake. Like, Oreo Blizzard Cake from Dairy Queen (because my family is awesome). Plus, homemade strawberry pretzel salad (because my family┬áis… Continue reading The Never-Ending Cycle of Learning Lessons

Just Breathe

Sometimes, I just put way too much pressure on myself. Losing weight is definitely one of those areas. It's been a really exciting feeling, seeing the pounds slowly slip off the scale. A first, for sure, especially of this magnitude. I've finally find a rhythm, though I'm still figuring out a few kinks. Testing different… Continue reading Just Breathe

Running Anxiety

I'm not sure how long you could actually label me a runner, but I've had runner's anxiety for as long as I could remember. It's a really stupid feeling where you're worried about what everyone else thinks concerning your own running style. For the longest time, this anxiety was so intense, I would actually avoid… Continue reading Running Anxiety
