Sh*t People Say on Instagram

Sh*t People Say on Instagram

After taking a two month hiatus from Facebook, (kind of like Rihanna, but without a nude picture scandal), I spent more time with the types of social media that personally make me happy, laugh, and keep me inspired–Pinterest, Twitter, and Instagram. I carved out more time to make the recipes I salivated over (and could actually …

Self Deprecation and Two Words You Use That Are Killing Your Vibe

Self deprecation...STOP IT.

Every time you use these two words self-deprecation wins: “Just” and “only.” Whenever you qualify something that would otherwise be highly awesome with “just” and “only”, a kitten falls out of a tree, a baby unicorn loses its horn and a piglet turns into bacon. Sad, yes, but I must get your attention to make …

Sweet Potato Protein Pancakes -- Cherie Runs This

While I’m down (not out–NEVER out!) with the sciatica, I’m making sure to stay on point with my food. You see these little “inspirational” posters all over Pinterest: {My boobs would look like that, too, if I held them up–just saying.} I’m a believer. I’m not able to go all H.A.M. in the gym at …

If it’s not one thing, it’s sciatica.

injured

  I feel good. Really good. {Yeah, my mirror’s not dirty. They’re paint spots, okay? Haa.} Well, except for a diagnosis of sciatica this past Tuesday. Sweet baby goodness gracious, does that sh*t hurt. Sciatica stems from something else, and in my case, it’s stemming from the herniated lumbar disc. Yes, that same injury from …

13.1 Reasons Why the Pittsburgh Half Marathon is My Favorite

Two weeks ago today, I ran my second Pittsburgh Half Marathon. Now, it didn’t take running it a second time to realize that it could very well be my favorite, but it did definitely cement it as such. It also didn’t take two weeks to come up with 13.1 reasons; I knew those during the race. Heck, …
