Direction (or lack there of)…

I often wonder if my time as a weight loss blogger turned marathon/maintenance blogger is coming or should come to an end. How long do I continue to sit down at the laptop and hope that (usually by some miracle) words will form coherently on my fingertips as the chaos of my thought […]

Start small and go from there…

*tap tap*

is this blog still on?

*tap tap*

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 3+ weeks since I spent anytime here on the blog. In fact it’s been over three weeks since I even opened my laptop and spent a significant amount of time surfing […]

Life = challenges.

It’s three weeks until the Bluenose Marathon.

This last weekend should have been the epic 23 mile run. It didn’t happen. Neither did the 21 mile run scheduled the week before. Six weeks before the marathon I happen to catch the “bug” that had been going around. Luckily I wasn’t as […]

It’s one of those days…

I wrote out what I said in the video for my Deaf friends because this isn’t one of those posts where you can really do it twice”

“Suppose I should say something…camera’s running. It’s one of those days. Yhea. One of those days where it’s hard to get out of bed. Hard to want […]

Mental illness + life maintenance…


I’m not afraid to talk about mental illness. I’m not afraid to live my life literally as an open book for other people to examine, digest and take from it what they can. I’m not afraid to tell people, I often feel weak emotionally and can cry […]

We are not equal (but we are the same)

A friend of mine recently sent me an email about something we can all understand. She was having a rough go of things. I didn’t ask too many questions. I don’t need to know the details of someone’s life to understand what it means to feel lost, afraid and struggling just to keep […]

Are you moving or dying?

I ran today.

4 miles.

Everything was wonky.

(video warning: Eff Bomb galore)

I didn’t really care.

Week 4 marathon training (14 to go)…

Last week was a tough week.

Because of some serious pain in my feet, I choose to skip two scheduled runs. I ran a total of 12 miles and that 4 mile marker over there is from a long day of walking in hopes of keeping my feet stretched out so […]


Confession: I don’t like to eat.

I know it sounds abrupt and general in terms of the concept of eating but for the most part I really don’t like to do it. Some days it’s so much of a chore (read: emotionally) that it’s easier for me to just have a smoothie […]
