What A Week

I'm sure that I am not the only one that is feeling their week!  I just started at school again, after about a year off, this time doing pre reqs for a Dental Hygienist program, and I am beat.  I need to get back in the habit of waking up early, and also making my … Continue reading What A Week

Some Advice Please

Yes, the title is serious.  Not really, but lets get right into it!  As some of you may or may not know (depending on if you follow my Instagram or read my last blog), I am training for a half-marathon.  With that said, as I up my miles, I am finding that I am in need … Continue reading Some Advice Please

Do Running and Teeth Go Together?

Happy Friday!  My new Friday night routine seems to consist of running way to late in the evening, and then conking out in bed!  I have learned that I run best at night, but with this heat wave in California (and most of the world), it makes it miserable to run before 8pm, so off … Continue reading Do Running and Teeth Go Together?

Running the Day Away

So I never updated after my Memorial Day race with the fam.  I went pretty well!  My sister did the first leg, which was a 5k, my dad did the second leg which was cycling 18k, and I ran the last leg for another 5k.  I have no idea if we "placed" or what our … Continue reading Running the Day Away

May Day

May is shaping up to be a fun month!  I am still broke as shit, but there are some cool activities going on in the area, and that I got tickets to awhile ago.  Next weekend the Amgen Tour of California starts in Long Beach, which is about 30-45 minutes from where I live, so … Continue reading May Day

The Highs and Lows

This past week of running has been very interesting, full of highs and lows!  I went for a pretty simple 2 mile run on Friday night, but at the end of the run, I had ended up with small hives all over my upper body.  So naturally, I went to Target and grabbed an antihistamine … Continue reading The Highs and Lows

New Chapters

So it looks like the last time I posted on here was September, which was 7 months ago.  Consistency is key, am I right?  If you don't know me in real life, I'll give you all a quick life update, not that anyone really cares that much about the minutiae of my life lol. When … Continue reading New Chapters

The Mind Reels!

Wow has life been crazy!  I feel like I sound like a broken record, but it is really true!  At the beginning of September, my sister started a new job 50 miles away from where we were living in Costa Mesa, so she moved, but luckily she had her apartment here until the 10th.  So … Continue reading The Mind Reels!

The First Step

We all deal with stress in our lives in different ways, and often it takes us a long time to realize how we cope, and then to change those patterns to be healthier.  I have been under a fair amount of stress about finding somewhere to live because my sister is moving at the beginning … Continue reading The First Step

Technology Hates Me

My tech has not been good to me this week!  It's such a first world problem, but I think we get so used to relying on technology that it can be hard to function when it doesn't work correctly. First I got some emails from Apple, and apparently someone decided to hack my account and … Continue reading Technology Hates Me
