A couple of weekends ago, I was EXHAUSTED. I slept from 7 pm on Friday until 12 pm the next day, waking up only to feed my dog and myself. I had been pushing myself too hard, and my body was trying to tell me something. So I listened. I slept all weekend, ate what […]
Two weeks ago, my allergies hit me hard. I was sniffling, teary eyed, sneezing, the works. That was on Thursday. And then by Friday, I was in full-blown cold territory. Super congested, constantly blowing my nose, the works. I can handle a migraine, but one thing I hate more than anything is feeling sidelined by […]
Y’all, it’s hard to be nice to yourself. The other night, I was sitting down to eat my delicious homemade tacos with chicken, beans, and lettuce on a tortilla, and in the midst of the meal I thought to myself, “You know, if I were really being healthy, I would have made these on lettuce […]
Alternate Title: The Week it All Fell Apart This week was really tough. It started with vertigo so bad I couldn’t stand up or keep anything down and a debilitating migraine, just 24 hours before I had to head out on my first of a few weeks of consecutive travel. How I felt: Stressed. Sick. […]
I’ve officially made it 14 days on the Whole30! I have to say, I sure picked a tough time to start. Between office events, general stress, and getting ready to travel, there has been a lot of temptation to cheat, but at the same time I figure that’s all the more reason I should be […]
I’ve officially made it through one week of the Whole30. Honestly, I did not believe I could make it a whole week. Part of why I embarked on this journey was simply to prove to myself that I could do it. After a really tough, stressful week, I feel like I’ve got nowhere to go […]
I like to think I’m a pretty healthy person. I don’t drink soda, I usually pack a (pretty healthy) lunch, and I work out regularly. Yet still I struggle with migraines and lately I’ve been feeling in a bit of a rut, and getting pretty exhausted by the end of the day. I’ve tried a […]
One of the hardest things for me to do is rest. I have a tendency to work myself into a headache or a cold by pushing through the symptoms. Take yesterday for example: I woke up with a horribly stiff neck and could feel a headache coming, and yet I still shadowed a tour at […]
Last week, I mentioned a few goals for the upcoming week. They were: Contact Moen about getting a new faucet (#adulting) Buy a present for a friend with a big life change coming up Write and send two thank you notes I’m behind on I successfully accomplished #2 and #3 although I’m still working on […]
Today was a rough day. It started out great, I woke up before my alarm and had time to make a leisurely breakfast, take a shower, and otherwise enjoy the morning. I figured I would clean up a little so I washed the dishes. I just got a new chef’s knife this weekend (since my […]
