Lockdown Check-In

So I recently wrote a post where I admitted to having a hard time with everything going on. I also said I wanted to be more honest and open about my feelings. So I thought I would do a quick update of how I am doing. Emotionally I am in a better place than I […]

April Goals/ Life Update

So missed the last goal post, and honestly, it was intentional. February was a hard month. I was hit pretty square in the head by some severe depression.

Getting It All Out

After Ben left for his first shift at the hospital since the official state lockdown started (we had been doing our own self-isolation before), I sat down on our bed and just started crying.

My writing routine is slowly bouncing back. But I still feel like I am treading water, or stuck in a rut. It […]

Punishing Myself

So over the years, I have really struggled with my weight. It’s been a lot of things- the fact that I did not develop good habits when I was younger (if I could give one piece of advice it would be, start learning to work out and eat well before you have to). There was […]

January Goals

Alright, I kind of lost track of these posts towards the end of the year last year (whoops) but new year, new goals. So I thought I would kick the first month off right. Going to try not to overwhelm myself with goals because I am still slightly in “vacation mode,” but I also know […]
