Yoga for me – 30/100

I’ve been incorporating yoga into my morning routine. It’s been a very grounding way to get the started. When I’m in it, all I’m aware of is my breath. And my muscles stretching off last night’s sleep. It brings me into the body and, as I’m aware that all I need to be doing in […]

Peace – 11/100

There is really nothing better than being at peace with where I’m at, what I’m doing, who I am, and where I’m going. Nothing.

I didn’t punch my brother today even though I usually want to – 21/100

It’s Friday. I’m driving on the freeway, one of my favorite places to be (depending on the time of day lol). My brother, one of my favorite human beings, is in the passenger seat. We are heading home from a good therapy session. Windows are down and the sun kisses my left arm resting on […]

I love my gym except for one thing

I’ve been a proud holder of a gym membership for the last 2 months. Up until 2 months ago, I’d never owned one. I feel cool, like I’m part of a club with my little barcode that I swipe to pass through the stiles bahaha. And it’s a nice feeling, I have a place to […]

Cleaning house

I woke up with no big plans. I had let go of anything I’m “supposed” to do last week. I took a shower, dressed out, put on my face, packed my stuff to work at a cafe for the day, scavenged for food to take on my journey. I was all ready to go and […]

What I don’t know

Today, I did the unthinkable. I wasted time. In actuality, it wasn’t a waste of time. I stayed in bed about 15 minutes longer. Went to the gym later than I’d planned. Put in my bike workout. Went home, showered, headed out to pick up a new bike for the tri. Helped someone run an […]

One last thought

As I head out to New Year’s Eve ratchetivities — which really just means more makeup than usual and a pre-paid entrance fee to a venue — I’m enlivened by the fact that I’m alive, I have good people around me, and I have something to look forward to. I don’t mean something to look forward to at the […]

I wanted to like you

If there’s one thing I really truly dislike, it’s bad quality. Here’s an example: It’s just a regular sports bra, right? This is what it did to my shirt earlier this week – after I’ve been wearing and washing it for the past four months. The first time it happened, I didn’t think much of it – it […]

Pops

I grew up vowing I would never – never – ever be like my dad. He’s not a terrible man; he’s just done some terrible things. But since high school, when the admirable image of my dad disintegrated and I began to use my mind to really understand what was going on and what he […]

each day i add to my yesterdays, the more i understand how important – no, that’s an understatement – how integral  planning is to life. or at least life the way i want to live it. it determines my outlook, my approach, my execution, and my sense of accomplishment. without planning, none of these things exist. if i […]

Friday

Sometimes life is good. You wear jeans to work (lol sounds so elementary but whatever). It only takes you 40 minutes to get to the office instead of the usual 1 hour and 5 minutes. Your dad bought a coffee machine so you have a fighting chance against narcolepsy while on the road. The podcast you selected […]

Paths

I spent Monday through Thursday (today) in San Diego at a client. Driving back today, I felt a little overwhelmed with work and alla that stuff. I hadn’t run my 3 miles for the day according to my training plan. I got home around 8pm and wondered, sprawled on my floor in my running clothes, […]

Simple things

Having an awesome travel partner makes the biggest difference. It’s the difference of feeling comfortable enough to do and say what you want and still meeting the other human being where they’re at. Plus, ’tis a nice combination of getting places and following plan and always leaving space for the unforeseeable. If you’re reading this girl, love ya! Bye!

Job

Man, work is hard sometimes. It’s not the hours, even though I work more than the typical 40 hours a week. It’s not the people – they’re awesome. It’s not the commute – I sometimes find myself wishing it would last a little longer so I could finish my podcast or chill with my music. It’s […]

Mouse

I bought two mice – one for my work laptop and another for my personal laptop. My current ones weren’t functioning properly – think schizo-scrolling, silent buttons (that really bothers me for some reason), just plain not clicking what I wanted it to click. Maybe it’s because of the 1oo8378 times I dropped it. Who knows? […]
