Does anyone else out there struggle receiving compliments? Don't get me wrong, I love hearing them in my soul. They make me feel so good. It's almost like every one you get, it is a helium balloon tied to your thoughts...it just keeps lifting them up. And when you're not used to hearing compliments in … Continue reading I really like your dress!
It's been a week since I admitted to you all that I'm struggling with stress and anxiety. Truth be told, I've been struggling for a while but it's just gotten to the point that I didn't feel I could handle it without help. So I've made changes. I've tried several changes in lifestyle this week. … Continue reading Soft.
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
There are all these companies out there these days that want to examine your blood/DNA/saliva and let it tell you all about you. I've always been curious about what my blood might tell me. So at the end of the year I purchased a Food Sensitivity and Metabolism test from Everlywell. The Metabolism test needed … Continue reading food sensitivity and me
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
This post is not going to be about breakfast. But seriously though...who's with me on the love of breakfast? Especially SECOND breakfast? Yum. I'm pretty certain second breakfast is my most looked forward to meal of the day. Thanks for all the positivity and love shown toward my last rather depressing post. It was not … Continue reading second breakfast
I've been putting this post off. To be honest, based on my mood right now I probably shouldn't be writing it either, but oh well. You're getting a very honest and real Sarah today, folks. Hold onto your butts. A little over a month ago I wrote a blog post about my goals for the … Continue reading self-portraits & sushi
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
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
