Spotlight on Sprinting

(Source) Sprinting is not your average exercise. When you’re doing that mad dash, puking is not far-fetched. Injuries can occur if you’re not careful. And soreness is guaranteed. But you know what else is guaranteed? Amazing results. So who is sprinting for? People who want to take it to the next level. People who are […] Read more…

You do NOT have permission to kick my ass…

Because I made it to the gym bright and early today! I am so glad I put up that post yesterday. If I didn’t, I’m not sure I would have made it to the gym this morning. But fortunately, I was able to drag my tuchus out of bed in time to squeeze in a […] Read more…

Accountability.

I am posting this because I need more accountability. I didn’t make it to the gym today and it is IMPERATIVE that I wake up early tomorrow and go before work. So I’m putting it out there in the blogosphere. If I fail, I give you permission to kick my ass. Also, I had cereal […] Read more…

To the night…

I’m prone to bouts of upper-end-of-young-adult blues. Some people call it a quarter life crisis, and it is usually a period of time in your twenties when you feel stuck in a rut, directionless, like your life has no meaning or purpose…basically like you’re trapped in a Kevin Smith movie. I guess that’s where I’m […] Read more…

Back to normalcy…

The first day back from vacation is surprisingly refreshing for me. I feel settled and excited to get back into a groove. It’s like a homecoming homeostasis, if that makes any sense. The highlight of my first day back was going to a farmer’s market in Pinecrest. Miss Guru Rabbit (aka Sylvia) was there selling […] Read more…

My trip to Orlando.

Ahhh…vacations. A time to enjoy yourself, leave all your stress and worries at home and immerse yourself in the moment. That was my plan during my trip, but I didn’t want to completely throw caution to the wind when it came to eating. Initially I had told myself that I’d eat whatever I wanted, but […] Read more…

I’m baaaack!

I’m going to post this picture because it’s probably the only healthy meal I had the whole trip. Hah. Although I did manage to make it to the gym while on vacation, so at least there’s that! The rest of the trip looked like this: This was actually the most disappointing meal I had during […] Read more…

Brain Farts

Just a warning, this is totally a fluff post. I promise I’ll have something more substantial when I get back from my trip to Disney World…and probably some more pictures of me enjoying foods I probably shouldn’t be eating. But until then… …A combination of things reminded me of something I wanted to share, those […] Read more…

A weekend of epicurean delights…

AKA how to ruin your diet…in a photo recap! Um…yeah. That was bad. I don’t usually go that balls to the wall with the booze and greasy food. These are definitely not my regular eating habits. Oh well. I still had a good time. However, I do not recommend eating like this on a regular […] Read more…

Forget soul food. This is spirit food!

A while back I decided that I was going to assign people “spirit foods” based on their personalities. For example, I said that I was chicken because I eat it all the time, it’s versatile, has lots of protein (since I’m into the muscle thing) and can be healthy. My nickname at work was even […] Read more…
