2014 Vacation Series #5: Lose Yourself
I'm finally back home in NYC! I had an AMAZING vacation, and got to spend time with family members I haven't seen in a very long time. Sitting in Uncle Dickie's kitchen, I learned about my family history (literally one of my favorite things to research) and...

Well, we're finally in Garner, the second half of our trip. We came to see my Uncle Dickie, his wife Aunt Julye, their three adult children Ricky, Dezmona, and Nathalie, their spouses, and Dezmona's 3 children. The view from Uncle Dicke and Aunt Julye's hou...

2014 Vacation Series #3: Running In the Heat
It's about 81 degrees here in Virginia Beach, but apparently in the south it feels like 95! The sun was beaming down on me as I reluctantly went on my run. I really didn't feel like being bothered -- I'm on vacation, I was relaxing with my family, I had had...

2014 Vacation Series #2: I SWAM!!!!
It was a lovely day 2 here at Virginia Beach. After a walk on the boardwalk with my parents where we saw the sights, sat by the water, and chit chatted, I convinced my mother to pop on her new bathing suit and go to the pool with me. I've always simultaneou...

Icky Splurges Are Icky
Yesterday was both a good day and a bad one. I spent it with my amazing boyfriend, Eric (you'll probably hear a lot about him in later posts), and it was special because it was my last day seeing him before going on vacation next week. We saw Hercules (grea...

5k Training Day 3 and No More Trouble Zones
My goal for yesterday was to go for 1.5 miles, and run as much of it as I could. I still find that I have trouble running that distance without walking, so I took my time and did the best I could. I was frustrated at first, but felt empowered when I realize...

I Want This Because...
I've given bits and pieces of my reasons for doing what I'm doing on various social networking platforms, but never before have I sat down and written out all the things I want for myself with regards to my weight loss journey. I figured now is as good a ti...

Mind Games
So the plan today was to run in intervals, which I like a lot better than just being asked to run/walk 1.5 miles -- I'm still in the early stages, so I prefer to be told when to run and when to walk rather than being left to my own devices like I will be on...
