Bicycles and Baggage

Every January 1st we re-evalute our lives and set resolutions for the year but who says we can't start anew anytime we want? This past year I think I've re-evaluated areas of my life several times. Back in March I started working out and changed my eating habits. In May I left a job and…

Falling Off the Wagon

  It’s been atleast two weeks since I’ve blogged and my poor excuse has been because I feel like a failure. All the holiday goodies and birthday treats have certainly caught up with me. I’ve even discovered Smashburger near my office which is not good. Don’t get me wrong, it’s amazing, but not healthy. So…

I Am A Runner

We are well into September and the air is cool, the sunrise is later and the sunset is earlier.  The lack of sunlit hours in the day is making it hard to stay motivated.  Part of why I loved running was getting up just before the sunrise so I could see the beauty that many…

Don’t Worry About A Thing

This past 4th of July was the best yet.  I was one of the lucky people whose company closed on the 4th and 5th so I was able to enjoy the moment without thinking about work.  It’s always hard for me to enjoy myself fully because I’m always thinking about what I have to do…

Kidney Failure!?

We’ve all heard how important it is to drink water on a daily basis but do you actually heed the advice?  I for one, do not which is a huge mistake on my part. I’ll admit, I hate drinking water.  It makes me feel so bloated like I’m going to float away.  But this weekend…

Guilt and Moving Forward

Lately I've been feeling less and less motivated to stick to my routine and wanting to break away from it and throw in something new.  I decided to try out the "couch to 5k" (C25K) program for the summer just to get outside and change things up. Sunday morning I got up and grabbed my…

Inspiration

Throughout this process I've tried to connect with something or someone who inspires me to push myself.  Most of the time those people have reached out to me to send me words of encouragement.  I carry each one of you to my classes and to the kitchen trying to make good decisions. Saturday night I…

Rock Out

A big part of my life has been about music.  I could hangout and just listen to music all day and have spent many hours at concerts just soaking it all in.  My earliest memory of music I have is driving around with my stepdad listening to 101.5 in New Jersey and he would tell…
