I did it all for the banana. And the Thanksgiving sides.

The night before, I got nervous. The morning of, I got real nervous. I think I went to the bathroom 11 times. And then I was nervous about being nervous because nervous poops. This is my life, y’all. I wore my new running leggings. I congratulated myself for choosing the long-sleeve shirt because it wasContinue reading “I did it all for the banana. And the Thanksgiving sides.”

Like riding a bike

David Sedaris has this great story about getting a Fitbit and basically how his OCD is mainly what keeps pushing him to not only hit his step goal but blow it out of the water completely. Give it a read after you’re done with this. I got a Fitbit last Christmas. I’d been having troubleContinue reading “Like riding a bike”

On the downhill part of this running thing

If only I meant that literally. I have now completed the official halfway point of the running program I’ve been using to get my ass in gear – Couch-to-5K, a nine-week running program that gets you from “Oh my God I can’t run for longer than 30 seconds without fear of dying” to “Oh, aContinue reading “On the downhill part of this running thing”

New year, new plans, new all kinds of stuff

So for my first post of the New Year, I wanted to motivate myself. Thus, the reason it was my past year in review (when it comes to blogging). It was pretty sad. I posted a lot that I’m really happy with, but looking back, it averages out to less than once a week! Unacceptable.Continue reading “New year, new plans, new all kinds of stuff”

My favorite posts this year – 10, to be exact

In honor of another year of blogging with double the amount of posts, comments and followers from the year before (really? What??!?) I have rounded up my personal favorites from what I’ve shared with you on this site. Some are one-hit wonders and others are part of a series. Because it’s too awesome not to,Continue reading “My favorite posts this year – 10, to be exact”

Really good at not keeping up

Yeah. So about that running thing. I’m probably gonna need to start over. I suck at a) running; b) motivation; c) life, apparently. Just kidding about that last one, but I do feel awfully shitty for stopping. And then not starting again. I don’t know what my problem is. I was doing so well thereContinue reading “Really good at not keeping up”

Bring it on, 2010

Every year on New Year’s Eve, I kind of think of some resolutions, but I can never really nail down a list, much less take them all seriously enough to stick to during the year. Then I realized it’s because I don’t make the resolutions tangible enough and they’re more out of guilt than wantContinue reading “Bring it on, 2010”

And then life – and insomnia – got in the way

Remember how, like, a month or so ago I said, “hey I’m gonna do this couch to 5K thing” and I was super-motivated for some crazy reason? Yeah…about that. It’s been a little busy and I’ve been a little sleep-deprived as of late and seriously the only thing I ever want to do anymore isContinue reading “And then life – and insomnia – got in the way”
