I’ve taken a break from the scale. After running (literally) full speed ahead into my 2019 weight loss and exercise mission, I hit a wall. I felt good because I knew I was making the right choices, but my body hurt, I was stressed and I was anxious. The long weekend was a perfect excuse … More When You Need a Break. Find Balance.
Sunday was my second 5k of 2018. And it was awesome! I shaved 2 minutes and 30 seconds off my time (thanks to my friend who kept trying to pace me. It worked though so I can’t be mad), and I felt good before, during, and after the race. No shin splints, no wanting to … More Where Are We Running?
Hi. My name is Jenn… …And I have lost my ass. It happened all of a sudden really. I hadn’t noticed the little changes because I’d been distracted by all the other changes. I’ve recently passed the 50lb hurtle and am speeding toward 60 on the weight loss journey highway. See, I’d been paying too … More Ass ass ass ass…
As the weather gets nicer and I’m spending more time outside, I’m also spending more time socializing. With alcohol. And food. And while I am basically a hermit during the week, weekends are completely different. I am currently at war with the weekend. Since going away for my college reunion in April, I’ve spent my … More At War with the Weekend
Anddd now you have that song stuck in my head. And so do you. It’s been 5 days since I joined Noom and I’ve lost 5lbs – thanks to my newfound motivation (I mean if I’m going to pay for a program, I’m going to get my money’s worth). I’ve followed the program every day … More Noom Noom Noom Noom (I want you in my room)
Yesterday was my first time at the gym since January. I’d joined the YMCA next to my work on my first day of work… in February. So with this Wednesday being the one month anniversary of my start date (and join date), and the fact that I had not been once, I told myself that … More It’s Fun to Slay (All Day) at the YMCA!
So I almost forgot to give an update on the 5K. It. Was. Really. Hard. Somehow the race was harder than training. Maybe it was because I ran faster. Got caught up in all the excitement, I guess. My normal time is 38:00. And while two minutes doesn’t seem like a lot, it was. My … More 3.1 Miles in 36:04
I’m not normally one to quote R. Kelly, because he’s a rapist and in general just a horrible person… but quoting Troy Bolton and saying “my head’s in the game but my heart’s in the song” doesn’t quite work for what I’m about to talk about: the power of the mind. See…I’m running the 5K … More My mind is tellin’ me no but my body, my body’s tellin’ me yes…
I started my new job yesterday. It was exciting but like any other first day, it started slow. But even in my first day, I did things I’ve never done before! Like…attending a casting call for a video my new company is producing. Almost the first thing we did when we got to the agency … More Decisions, Decisions: The Power of Positive Choices
Wise words from Ginger, Posh, Baby, Scary, and Sporty… Spice, that is. And it’s something I’ve been thinking a lot about when it comes to all things booze and boys. And when I really think about it, body too. At the beginning of last week I was feeling good, feeling inspired, and like my next … More Too Much of Something is Bad Enough…
