2013: The Best Worst Year of My Life

The last day of 2013. I feel like I should do some grandiose, month-by-month, epic-like, (cue my movie voice) “Here it is: The Year in Review, 2013 Edition.” But ehh, I don’t feel like it. Annnnnnd 94,362,106,875 other bloggers are, so I’m not going to. Sing along to the tune of, “It’s my party and …

Get Busy Living…It’s a Wonderful Life.

Exactly one month ago today, I found myself at a major crossroads. I came home from work, sat alone on a bench in my apartment, and thought about my life. It was one of those moments where I thought, and this is straight from Shawshank Redemption, “I’m going to get busy living or get busy …

I Bought a Lululemon Bag and Now I’m Getting a Divorce.

Remember when I posted this on Instagram a couple weeks ago? Looking at the caption of the picture, well… I was half joking about the title of this post and half not. If you follow me on my Instagram, Facebook page, Twitter or just know me in the real world, you know my big news. …

Prozac and Other Reasons to Smile.

Oh what a difference a week makes. And new meds. Last Monday, I had had it with the evil side effects with which the Zoloft darkened my doorstep body. I mean, c’mon man, if you’re already struggling with clinical depression and your symptoms include being lethargic (RE: seriously, seriously not giving a flying flip about …

The Elephant in the Room.

Have I really not blogged in about a month? Y’all know that’s not like me. You really know. So much in fact, that a good many of you were about to send out a search party.

I Got 100 Problems Because Now a Bikini Is One.

This post is late. Along with everything else in my life the past three weeks. The quick version: Work life. June is normally a rough mental month for me anyway with the anniversary of my mother’s death, but work life and things related to it that were out of my control, took me to a …

Recap: The Pittsburgh Half Marathon was full awesome!

It’s been exactly one week now, but I still cannot get the complete awesomeness that was the Dick’s Sporting Goods Pittsburgh {Half} Marathon out of my mind. I wasn’t going to do it because I now tend to focus on weight training vs. cardio. I wasn’t going to do it because I just ran a …

CNN {seriously?!}, You Rock, and a Weekend Run Down.

Heyyyyy, guys! I had a whole other post ready for today but then this showed up on the world wide web this past Friday: So that happened. Wow. Just wow. That’s my friggin’ mug on the home page of CNN!!! I knew there was an article coming out on there, but only days before did …

Marathon training, I’m just not that into you. So we’re done.

Wow. Happy 2013! I totally meant to post before the year was 12 days old. But long work weeks, many hours at the gym, updating  and corresponding on my FB page, Twitter, & Instagram, a bad head cold and sleeping have managed to take up of the previous two weeks! So here I am now. …
