Put The Phone Down

Tomorrow's Thanksgiving which normally means we're eating a lot and getting together with family. Maybe we've seen the family recently, or maybe relatives are flying in from far away. Either way, the whole purpose of the day is to give thanks. For food. For family. For love. For life. We are sharing each other's company… Continue reading Put The Phone Down

Overcoming Running Obstacles

Or exercise in general. Incoming: a shorter but important blog. What's in your way? Right now. Why aren't you going outside, going to the gym, going into the other room to workout, to run, to do yoga? Why aren't you there? And why is that excuse good enough? Is it time? Previous commitments? Listen, things get out… Continue reading Overcoming Running Obstacles

I’m Full: Respect Eating Habits

So here we are, the magical week of Thanksgiving. All the yummy foods of our nostalgic, American holiday are approaching. We've only got a few days before we're elbow deep in the food of this seasonal holiday. How exciting! Except, for some us, we know that odds are, we're going to run into some troubles.  Let's… Continue reading I’m Full: Respect Eating Habits

Slow Down

I'm asking you to slow down during the holiday season. What am I...insane? Well, maybe but that isn't the point. The point is that holiday season or not, we move too quickly through our lives. We rush out the door. Ride other people's bumpers on the way to work. Rush through our workouts, our chores.… Continue reading Slow Down

Write When You Don’t Want To

I'll be honest, as I type up this blog, I really don't want to. My husband's home, I'm not super inspired, and it's a perfect day for cocoa and cuddling. Not sitting, thinking, writing, and working. But that's what I'm doing. Don't pity me though because tomorrow me will thank me. I don't want to write… Continue reading Write When You Don’t Want To

Try It Again

The holidays are all about being kind to one another. Being generous. Opening our hearts. Spreading love. Embracing one another and being patient. So why are we not like that with ourselves? Why is this beautiful season something that we can only extend to other folks? More importantly: Who set up that standard? Let's face… Continue reading Try It Again

Listen To Yourself

Listening to yourself, practicing self-care, whatever you would like to call it we are oftentimes bad about seeing the signs our body gives us. Most of the time, as much as I don't like saying this, it doesn't matter that much. Why? Because not that much goes on in the spring, the summer, even the early… Continue reading Listen To Yourself

Running and The Holidays

Oh boy. Keeping to an exercise schedule during the holidays is rough. Running can be even harder if we're doing it outside. Everything gets so busy, we don't eat exactly what we should be eating, and it's cold and dark. Bottom line: running during the holidays is hard. But what else is new? If you've come… Continue reading Running and The Holidays

Rearrange Your Knick Knacks

We love our knick knacks. That is why we have them after all. We have collected them, been gifted them and because of that, we see them and see the memories they hold. We see the trips we've been on. We've seen the memory of a loved one who has passed. We see firsts and… Continue reading Rearrange Your Knick Knacks
