It's evening here in Missouri. I'm sitting here in my house, trying to knit pieces to an afghan, listening to the cats fight, and thinking about my last year. For grins I went and re-read the post I wrote for my 39th birthday. It makes me laugh and laugh. Oh Sarah, you had no idea … Continue reading …and then I turned 40.
20/20: perfect vision
Recently I heard the line, "know the difference between spectacular and significant." It was said in the context of ourselves. How often do we look at others, in all their spectacular glory, and wish we were different? I don't know about you, but for me, it's a lot. I fail to recognize my own significance … Continue reading 20/20: perfect vision
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.
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
the calm and the storm
Flying over a thunderstorm outside of Dallas this past October I think I've stared at the "Add title" part of this post for a good 20 minutes. I just finished writing a very mopey post about memories and pain. It's still in my drafts but I'll probably never post it. I'm sure everyone is tired … Continue reading the calm and the storm
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
week 1: here I am
Has everyone watched the movie "Dumplin" on Netflix yet? If not, you totally should. You'll walk away smiley AND have new appreciation for Dolly Parton. I read the book last year and loved it and couldn't wait for the movie. I watched it with my mom and grandma over Christmas and it was nice. (The … Continue reading week 1: here I am
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.)
What. A. Year. I wish I could say 2017 was the most amazing year I've ever had, but that would be a lie. It did have some very high points. I did things that I'm supremely proud of, especially now. It had some downs too...but you know what? While those times were super crappy, I … Continue reading 2018
