(from Life.Church) Do any of you have any phrases that you say to yourself just out of habit? I do. It's usually under my breath, and almost always after I've done something dumb or I'm overwhelmed. It is always, "Oh my goodness, Sarah. What in the world." (Not a question, just a statement.) I have … Continue reading ewwww, david. no.
My 39th year
Hello hello! We are at the END of September. Can you believe that?! I certainly can't. I keep saying it over and over, but I can't really believe how fast it feels this year is flying by. Before I know it we will be celebrating Christmas and then the arrival of 2020. C-R-A-Z-Y. I'm sitting … Continue reading My 39th year
goals, direction, and starting to see light.
Seeing the light arriving Greetings, my friends! And Happy Sunday! I hope everyone is having a great and relaxing weekend. It has been raining off and on yesterday and today and honestly it's been nice to chill for a hot minute. I did quite a bit of socializing this week and was oh-so-ready for a … Continue reading goals, direction, and starting to see light.
but then I stopped.
OLIVIA NEWTON-JOHN, Physical video, circa 1981-82 I'm writing this during the day. ON MY LUNCH BREAK. Yeah, I still can't get over that. 🙂 So this morning I did something that I wanted to write about. You want to know what it was? I didn't go to the gym and I didn't feel guilty about … Continue reading but then I stopped.
Black coffee and honesty
One of my compromises with myself when I started this blog (in deference to my last one) was to be completely honest. You get the good and the bad, the ups and downs, the wins and the losses. Why be fake? Why try to trick everyone into believing that life is rosy all the time … Continue reading Black coffee and honesty
tired and hungry and sore
Well, I think my title says it all. It fully encapsulates this week. I started Phase II of my new year journey on Monday. I jumped in with both feet. Phase II included new programming at the gym (both strength and HIIT), calorie and macro guidelines based on my reading of Fat Loss Forever, and … Continue reading tired and hungry and sore
2018…let it go (queue Elsa.)
I'm typing this post in the throws of a massive cold/flu/grossest junk EVER mess. Knowing that, it's safe for me to say that 2018 can just keep on trucking right out the door. HOWEVER...this year was one I won't forget: the good, the bad, and what's to come... Let's start off with the bad and … Continue reading 2018…let it go (queue Elsa.)
someone has turned on the lights.
My grandmother just had cataract surgery in both of her eyes. After she got out of the surgery she immediately said, "It is like someone has turned on all the lights!" I love that. It is also how I feel right now. Now that the emotional and dark cloud of April has passed, now that … Continue reading someone has turned on the lights.
the next 30 days
I wish I could tell you that I started this year just killing my workouts and nailing my diet and never being lazy or tired or sick or inconsistent. But that would be a lie. With the exception of a couple of good weeks, 2018 has been a roiling boil of excuses and exceptions. It … Continue reading the next 30 days
It is Friday night and I'm sitting here on my sofa, having a cup of sleepy tea, and watching Grace & Frankie (again) on the TV. (Side note: I'm SO excited for Season 4 which comes out next week.) ANYWAY. I got off work this afternoon and came home and deep cleaned my living room. … Continue reading Climbing again
