Down the Rabbit Hole

Down the Rabbit Hole

I am a fairly easily distracted person, so it’s no surprise that I can easily disappear down rabbit holes that to others seem unimportant or even stupid. But sometimes I just can’t help myself. I recently went down a rather strange rabbit hole, and I’m finding it hard to dig myself out of. As a … Continue reading

Getting Organized

Getting Organized

I am by far an organized person. I tend to leave clothes piling up on my dresser all week before finally putting them away on Saturday or Sunday. My kitchen counter is littered with papers that I need to address but aren’t top priority. Every surface in my house is cluttered with random things — … Continue reading

Comparing Yourself to Others

Comparing Yourself to Others

It’s a fairly well-known fact that you shouldn’t compare yourself to others. But sticking to that is, in reality, pretty damn difficult. When it comes to running, I don’t necessarily compare myself to others, but I do often compare myself to pre-kid Cat. She was faster, more efficient, and frankly enjoyed running a lot more … Continue reading

Before and After Kids

Before and After Kids

Before kids, I rarely skipped a workout. I ran a lot and thought about things like speedwork and personal records. I often worked out twice a day. After kids, I have no problem skipping a workout if I’m dragging and I have the option to sleep for an extra hour. I still work out, but … Continue reading

Oh, hai…

Oh, hai…

A lifetime ago, I started this blog so I could write about running, cooking, beer drinking, body image, and other random musings. But like with many endeavors, it became a chore and I posted less and less until I simply didn’t post anymore. Also, I became a mother, which is a pretty time consuming thing, … Continue reading

That Guilty Feeling

That Guilty Feeling

I woke up at 5:13 this morning to go running (because I run Thursdays), but instead I am sitting here drinking a cup of tea and listening to the radio. Deep down, I know that taking a break this morning is the right thing for my body and my baby. But that doesn’t stop me … Continue reading

Here Comes Trouble!

Here Comes Trouble!

Hey guys! First of all, thanks so much for the wonderful comments and congratulations on my last post! It’s been a couple of weeks but I’m hanging in there and feeling good! Last week we had the 20-week ultrasound and discovered that our baby is a girl! I always wanted a girl so I was … Continue reading

These last few months…

These last few months…

It’s been months since my last post. When I started this blog I had images of me writing every few days, or at least once a week. And for a while, I did it! But then, some stuff happened that kind of changed my life, and I lost touch with my blog. But I want … Continue reading

Long Lost

Long Lost

I suck. It’s been a reeeeeeeeeally long time since I posted. I tend to do this. I had a blog once before–primarily a recipe blog–and I posted faithfully once a week or so for the first few months, and then it just died out. I tend to start things out with plenty of enthusiasm, but … Continue reading
