Yesterday I saw 3 shooting stars and 3 deer during my run. Today I shat on the side of the road like a deer. Life is funny that way.
Pregnancy is a wild journey. And for me, it's not without lots of fatigue, nausea, and heartburn. How people put themselves through this 5 times or more is beyond me. Babies are tight and all... but my goodness. My cap is 2. I'm 20 weeks along and baby is kicking and squirming in its home. … Continue reading Fitness. Diet. Pregnancy Take 2.
Y'all... you know how you make a declaration to do something in the spur of the moment and then realize that maybe you didn't really think everything through? Examples include, but are not limited to: "I'm going to learn to juggle" or "I'm going to garden" or "I'm going to drink less wine" or my favorite, "I'm … Continue reading 2,016 miles in 2016 and Matcha Chia Pudding
A couple of years ago, yoga found me, I felt inspired, shaved my head, signed up for yoga teacher training and went to India. I stopped drinking, made a promise to stop gossiping, and made goals to better myself and to live authentically true. Two years ago never felt so far.

It's Friday, the sun is shining, it's a new month, and I am determined to make November the best month of 2013. However, October was a pretty fantastic month! I had my first ever surprise party and last night was Halloween. I love Halloween. Last year Damir couldn't celebrate with me because he had an … Continue reading Halloween and the goals of November

It's the sort of pose that when I was finally able to do it in my hot yoga class, I smiled. It's a pose I feel … Continue reading My favorite (not so graceful) pose in yoga
Hello all! I have been on a little vacay last week.... no just kidding. I have not been that fortunate. I have been training, studying, yoga-ing (verb?) and watching Dr. Who. This is finals time and things are CRAY! I am trying hard to keep calm and breathe through it all. As many of you … Continue reading Still standing (barely): my half marathon experience
My first day of spring break was not academically productive like I hoped. Instead of reading about social movements and collective identity, I brought new challenges into my life. I went on my first 10 mile run ever and got certified to lead climb and lead belay. These two activities brought about new realizations. 1) … Continue reading Pushing past the fear: lead climbing
