I used to be a death knight…
Five years I played World of Warcraft.
Five years I sank into a chair for hours and hours each day creating a reality that was so far away from what my real life represented. It was WHERE I wanted to be because there [...]
I’ve run a lot of races since I began running back in February. My first “running” race was 10 months ago and since then I’ve crossed more than a dozen finish lines. This time there was no fancy inflatable start line. There was no fancy timing chip attached to my shoes. There weren’t hundreds/thousands [...]
I am not in a good place right now. I don’t even know where to begin so I’m just going to let my fingers click across this keyboard and see where I end up. I want to quit the #100daychipquest challenge. I’m really mad at myself and I feel stupid for letting someone [...]
When Geneen Roth (Woman Food and GOD) was 11 years old, she stopped believing in GOD. She found comfort instead in Hostess Sno Balls. You know the fluffy pink balls of delicious goodness we ate as children (and probably many of us still eat as adults).

So I have this friend. You’ve heard me mention him before. He’s the brainchild behind the hashtags #7daychip #30daychip and even the #100daychip. It’s been quite the feat to earn the three #7daychip(s) and I’ve yet to make it to the #30daychip mark (though as of today I am on day number 20 and [...]

I recently started reading Geneen Roth’s “Women Food and GOD” [...]
Today I’m going to run 12 miles.
This time last year I was barely running 2 miles and I have the old posts to prove it.
Thank your body for all the hard work it does.
It loves you.
And so do I.

I had a conversation with a good friend of mine yesterday. She’s been on her own weight loss journey for some time now with some pretty good success. She wanted to lose weight for her wedding day and when that day came she slipped into her beautiful wedding gown and said her vows [...]
It’s Sunday Morning.
It’s way early.
In fact, most of you are still sleeping.
Thinking about you.
It used to be I would get up at the crack ass in the morning to sit on the couch for a few minutes before putting on some XXL sweatpants, [...]
I’ve spent the majority of my life as a population of one. I had neighborhood friends and even a best friend or two growing up but as young as I can remember I preferred to be alone. At home I’d spend hours in my room doing nothing. At school I’d put books [...]
