My First Week Of Coconut Oil

I’d heard of coconut oil for a while, especially from my brother, but I figured it was just another one of those health things that would eventually disappear and it would be another thing…like kale. But on this past Saturday I found myself feeling really run down to the point of just giving up on […]

Getting On My Green Monster

Made a deal with my co-worker we’d both make a Green Monster for the morning. We even took a trip to Trader Joe’s at lunch to pick up some extra stuff. I gave her some tips about making spinach ice cubes and then we thought also you could do that with almond milk probably. So […]

The Little Things – Part One

Idea from Schmutzie. There is a lot of crap going on in my life lately but I don’t really post about it because it’s depressing. Basically chronic back pain, weight problems, work commute problems, no money and me the only one with a job. So that’s all just kind of a given at this point […]

2013 Year End Report – Dailymile

So I was pretty pleased when I saw this but I’m actually 5 miles less than 2012, however I had 12 more workouts in 2013. I think this probably means I did more gym and less like hiking and day outs, probably because of my back. I big month in 2012 was March and 2013 […]

Highly Sensitive Me

I decided to listen to the audio book The Highly Sensitive Person because I knew I was sensitive, extremely sensitive, so I thought maybe it would give me some insight. I never expected it to explain almost all of my serious issues. As a kid I was very shy, to the point so much that […]

Funked Out

I’m in a funk. I didn’t really realize how deep of a funk I was in until I realized I barely pick up my camera anymore. It used to be attached to me. I used to carry it around with me hoping a moment would jump out in front of me and beg me to […]

Saying No To Buff

Is it weird that I’ve never wanted to look like this? I’ve never wanted to be buff or ripped. I’ve always wanted to be toned but I’m not interested in being head to toe muscle. To me, it’s just not sexy but that’s a personal thing. I want to have curves and to be a […]
