Goal for 2013 #1

January 31, 2013


The whole reason I write this blog is because I have this gigantic, amazing, goal of learning how to surf. I am finally in a position where that’s possible. I’ve realized, however, that I need to have other small goals as well. Something that I can continue through my life (though I plan to surf […]

Anxiety and Disordered Eating

January 22, 2013


During my journey into healthful living I have realized more than ever that 75% of being healthy is being in a state of mind that offers individual respect for yourself and others. Personally, while juggling all of the things that life has thrown at me I have been lacking on the self-respect, and in turn […]

Embracing the Old

January 21, 2013


“Faith is taking the first step even when you didn’t see the whole staircase” – Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. It’s been about 3 months since my last entry. As much as I hated being away from blogging, I needed to take a step back and get my priorities back in order. Many things have […]

Hi All, I know I never officially made an exit in the beginning of September, but I had to put my blogging on hold so I could really focus on what was important in my life, as well as finding myself full time employment! I am happy to report that I’ve accomplished that and should […]

Why I’m Choosing Healthy

September 9, 2012


In an effort to really connect with my blog, it’s readers, and to find a true and authentic voice I am going to share my story. For better or worse. A few months before my 19th birthday, during my second semester away from home at college in Buffalo, NY I received news that my parents […]

Fitness at the Zoo

August 17, 2012


Having been an high school and college athlete I was practically forced to workout nearly 30 hours a week. Needless to say, I am not exactly thrilled when I have to do workouts. It reminds me of those 5am practices! So, I absolutely love when I can get a workout in doing something everyday and […]

Obligatory Seafood at the Beach

August 9, 2012


Stuart and I spent an interesting weekend at Carolina Beach, this past weekend. It’s fairly amazing that I actually like the beach, since I turn into a lobster anytime I spend more than 30 min in the sun. My swedish genes make me a bit pasty, and in an eternal battle with the sun. Luckily, […]

The Shuckin’ Shack

August 2, 2012


Stuart and I are heading to Carolina Beach, NC tonight. It’s located on the southern coast of North Carolina and it’s one of our favorite places in the entire world. A few months back, in March, I finally had a weekend off from my very demanding job and Heather and I decided to head to […]

Classic Egg Sandwich

August 1, 2012


My sister-in-law, well she isn’t actually my sister-in-law. She is my sister-in-law’s sister, but I call her my sister-in-law. Let’s just go with Heather. Heather was in town last night, and her birthday was this past weekend. My boyfriend and I decided to take her out to our favorite place to grab a bite to […]
