When Texting Was Hard Work

The theme around here lately is catch-up.
I feel like I am constantly playing catch-up for one thing or another.

I am catching up on work, running, lifting, eating, and writing. Unfortunately, writing has been the last thing on my list. I hate to say it because it is one of the things that brings me some peace each day, but it has been pushed to the bottom of the list because of other priorities.

As soon as I get a grasp on my life, I will be back to my daily posting, but until then I’ll be posting when I can.

I even hope to get the guts to post some progress pictures soon! I did go for my first run in two months this week. IT WAS AMAZING!!! I forgot how much I love running! I am planning on fitting a few races in this fall still, so I need to keep my butt in gear!

My friend Kim, who is amazing by the way, has been meeting me at the gym and has become my lifting buddy. It is nice to have someone there to talk to while I pretend to get ripped!
We had a moment talking about texting last night and when I found this it seemed too perfect not to post.

An Introduction to Macros & IIFYM

A lot of you have asked me to explain what macros are and why I track them instead of calories or instead of eating clean. I want to go on record that I don’t think I could ever eat clean 100% of the time. I am a junk food and baked goods lover, and I […]


Little Things That Bring a Smile to Your Face

This week theĀ little thing that brought a smile to my face was getting my new drivers license. No, I wasn’t happy to pay another $26 for a piece of plastic with my picture on it. But this license made me feel so much better about myself. The pictures on the left are my license that […]

Finding Time

Obviously I have not been finding the time to hang out here much. I have been fitting in the busy work schedule due to football and out of town travel, along with regular family life and now the competition training. I have had to go to the gym after the monsters go to sleep sometimes, […]
