    Alright. This past Sunday morning I woke up feeling completely fine. I went for a run a little bit later in the morning than usual on a really humid day. When I was done, I was feeling really nauseous and dizzy. I went home and my husband immediately sent me for a nap in the air conditioning. During... Read more

    I knew this weekend was going to be tough. We always have a big barbecue for the 4th of July. We didn't invite many people over this year because of social distancing, but we still made a lot of delicious food. On top of that, the filmed version of Hamilton was released on Disney+ on Friday night. M... Read more

    I'm encountering a problem: I have finally broken a lot of habits and self destruction, by separating weight and fat from my identity. It's more viewed from the outside, now: I'm fat, like I am 5' 6" tall, and I have blue eyes. My weight is not more important than my blood sugar, my cholesterol n... Read more

    Trigger warning: Eating disorder So much has happened since my last blog post, approximately 3 years ago (early July, 2017). I worked 2 years at my old business, the local casino.

    Happy Saturday, everyone! Over the past couple weeks I've been trying out different healthy snacks that don't break that calorie bank. I've compiled a list of my favorites and wanted to keep them here for easy reference. 1. Chocolate pudding with a few pretzels 2. Celery with cream chees... Read more

  • My Reasons to Exercise!

    I'm super pumped because today I hit 26 days in my exercise streak! A couple weeks ago I made a list of reasons to exercise that I could look at on days that I want to skip a workout. I figured I'd share them since I'm getting more comfortable with the Spark community. 1. To feel better. 2. T... Read more
