I have been struggling lately in lots of ways, big and small. My parent has stage IV cancer and apparently it is back with a vengeance, and things are not going all that well, treatment wise. Meanwhile, this is a busy part of the year for ... Read more

Funny thing-- the more consistent my workouts, the more I find that I want to work out. My body likes the movement, the surprises, the limber feeling. No, I don't always wake up wanting to work out (I've never really been a morning person)... Read more

I've been getting back in the game lately. A few group workouts, two workouts with a trainer for accountability, lots of walks and some bike rides (weather permitting). Feels good so far. I'm about to do some work traveling again, which ca... Read more
Back in the game

I've been away from SP (obvi!) and my consistency has not been good. I miss my 3x weekly workout ladies in CA like CRAZY. Having that accountability was gold, y'all. So I am trying to find a new workout group here. Back in February, ... Read more
Showing up

As long as you're showing up, you're in the game. Right? I guess I've reached a moment when I'm not interested in beating myself up for taking a break from my workout schedule, or not adhering to my nutritional plans. I just don't see it as... Read more

The past six months brought a lot of change. There was another cross-country move, a new job (as a tenure track professor), and buying that first house... It's been a wild ride for sure. One of my parents has stage 4 cancer and just completed a ... Read more

Backsliding is such a weird word. But I find myself trying to get back on track, if there even IS such a thing as being "on track" at all. Due to a lot of travel and special events this summer, my workout schedule and healthier eating habi... Read more

Heading in to May, here's an update on me. I'm currently 2.5 weeks in to my third 6-week challenge for the year. I fell off the nutrition and mostly off the exercise wagon for a few weeks in between the 2nd and this challenge, and I really felt ... Read more

TGIF, y'all. I managed to successfully complete my first round of personal fitness challenges-- that was 33 workouts of 33 minutes (or longer) within 40 days. I had to double up a few times during the final week to make it-- but I DID IT. ... Read more

Well, this is the end of Week 2 (of 6) of my personal fitness challenge, and I am feeling GOOD. Sore, yes. But good, too. Not just about working out, but also about overcoming fear. Sometimes we don't fully recognize, I think, how difficult it i... Read more

My bike took me on a ride to see the ocean this morning. I'm not sure why the image is misbehaving. Just tilt your head to see it properly! The... Read more

Chaos, in the best sense

It has been a few busy months, with no chance of settling down anytime soon. But the good news is that I have accepted a job offer for a one-year job on the sunny California coast! So I have just started the process of trying to work out the ... Read more

I've been interviewing and working on articles and presentations for upcoming conferences. I was the finalist for one job (that I really wanted) that was cancelled due to sudden budget issues. I just came back from another interview that went ve... Read more

Today is May 4th- Star Wars Day ("May the Fourth be with you!"). But what does that mean to me today? I've graduated, I've wrapped up my job, and now it is time to get back to focusing on me. I'm looking for a new job, yes, but I'm also loo... Read more
