Running Journal (And Mascot)

Meet Avocado. This is my running mascot. He's actually an adorable dog toy my husband got me for Christmas. After moving him around from shelf to shelf, he landed on my running journal and I knew then that he was going to be my Running Avocado. He became my mascot! All right, I get it.… Continue reading Running Journal (And Mascot)

Forgive, But Don’t Forget

Whoops. Controversial statement over here. There's a reason for it, I swear. Let's think. How often have you heard the term forgive and forget? How many times have you yourself thought it? How many times have you tried to forgive and forget? How many of those times were successful? We are instructed by habits and age-old advice to… Continue reading Forgive, But Don’t Forget

You Won’t Ever Be Happy (Enough)

WOAH! Controversial topic over here! But it's not what it sounds like so stick with me. You won't ever be happy enough. Not if you're looking to be happy enough. Or happy in general. It doesn't quite work that way.  The latest kick is to embrace yourself, love yourself, and find inner happiness. Advertisements and… Continue reading You Won’t Ever Be Happy (Enough)

I’m Not Strong Enough

Here's some word vomit: I'm not strong enough to face my battles. I'm not strong enough to conquer them. I'm not strong enough to stand on my own two feet and push through the headwind of my struggles. I'll fall to my back with an open, vulnerable belly. I'll fail if I fight. I'm not strong enough to… Continue reading I’m Not Strong Enough

Coffee, Coffee, And More Coffee

Yep, that picture is definitely of a happy cup of coffee. To me, nothing is better than a cup of coffee. Doesn't even matter if it is smiling back or not because the first sips of coffee are always heaven. But then again, there's something to be said for the warm feeling of a cup… Continue reading Coffee, Coffee, And More Coffee

When What You Love Kills You

It started almost one year ago with an injury from an idiot who never apologized. That was the beginning of everything. The injury and everything afterward brought me to my knees physically and mentally. And I am lucky to have been forced to my knees. I'm lucky to have been so broken and so hurt. I'm lucky… Continue reading When What You Love Kills You

Benefits of Ten Minutes of Yoga

This isn't scientific but it is speaking from experience, for what it's worth. We all know we should squeeze in that workout, that walk, that quick yoga session but we also know (very well) how easily things can get in the way of that. It's not as if our schedules are open and asking to have… Continue reading Benefits of Ten Minutes of Yoga

I Have To Exercise

"I can't. I have to..." Exercise, train, run, bike, workout. Any variation of the above. The people who know me know not to question this. Tha's not to say that they know why. They just know better than to suggest I skip a workout. There have been many an occasion where I turn down coffee, dinner,… Continue reading I Have To Exercise

Summer Yoga

Summer is still here! When we think about summer we think about sun, joy, relaxation, and the heat. When designing and thinking about this flow, I wondered how I could put all of those together to embody the feeling of summer. Today's yoga is a special flow centered on heat. First off, if you are eager… Continue reading Summer Yoga
