The picture has nothing to do with this post really. It’s just pretty and positive. Well maybe it does…I guess it shows that even when you are going uphill…the scenery is still pretty. I went to see my new therapist yesterday. She isn’t really new…I should move to calling her my therapist. I don’t go … More Diagnosis, Label, Explanation, Reality
It’s been pouring all day here in VA. Update – I’ve been scrambling to find a Biology class to take so I can enter a Masters degree program in the fall…I got conditionally accepted.

So it has been since September. Wow! I haven’t written here since September? A lot has happened. The new roof is on…the deck still isn’t fixed, the window is still cracked, and the outside light doesn’t work…but the roof is fixed. Thanksgiving and Christmas came and went. It’s a new year…and I’ve binge watched a … More New Beginnings

Time passes so quickly. April 2nd was my last post. 19 days ago…and here I thought it was at most 2 weeks…but it is two days shy of three. I’ve been Overtired. Overwhelmed. Overextended. What does this lead to? Neglecting things like my email that is nearing 1,000 messages unread…writing, exercising, and eating healthy. I … More Message to Self: Stop Complaining. Start Doing.
My run today was miserable. My calves hurt. A lot more walking than running. But, I managed 4 miles. Took more days off last week than I should have. I’m tired. I’m struggling to remain positive. I weighed myself. Something I don’t do often because I don’t want to feel dependent on the scale to … More Tired and Struggling
It’s a rainy day here so I didn’t take a walk at lunch. The shorter lunch allowed me to take off from work a little early. I’ve got a couple of long days coming up…so I wanted to make sure I gave myself the time to workout today. So here is how the week looks … More I Owed Myself the Hour
I didn’t meet my goals again. I’m feeling incredibly frustrated and disappointed. It was a tough week all around. Last few days I’ve been wicked tired. Yesterday and today – I’m frustrated to the point of anger and crying. Recently…I went to get an oil change at a big chain place…$55.00 and a list of … More Goals that Don’t Work or Just a Bad Week?
