I ate way too much tonight....
My roommates and I went out for dinner and drinks… Ugh I’m so full. :( Between drinking and going out to eat, senior week is going to kill me.
That moment when you realize you really don't have...
This is so accurate. :(
Me: what now?
Anxiety: Nothing, just wanted to worry you today.
Anxiety: Hey your boyfriend/girlfriend didn't text you back, they're probably with someone else right now.
Anxiety: Oh your best friend hasn't spoken to you today either. They're probably sick of your shit.
Anxiety: Your parents said they're really proud of you..do you honestly believe that?
Anxiety: Where do you see yourself in a year? Oh wait, you can barely get through a day!
Me: ...shut up.
Anxiety: Will you ever rise to anything?
Me: Shut up!
Anxiety: Or are you always this pathetic? Lol
Me: Why can't you leave me alone!?
Anxiety: Because messing with your head is what I live for.
Yesterday I did the 12 round workout at the Ring Boxing club. I’ve done it before, but it was different this time. I take it with “Big Tom” and that class seems to be a lot more cardio intensive (sprints, running up stairs, high knees, etc.) with more punching of the bag. But this time it was with a different trainer, and it was really difficult…so many weight exercises,...
People will love you. People will hate you. And none of it will have anything to...– Abraham Hicks (via bnakey)
Maybe I'm not really meant for anything at all...
Feeling so lost.
I feel like I've been eating so terrible lately.
Gotta get back on track. :-/
First Boxing class today!
It was really cool and definitely quite a workout! I’m excited to go back and use my monthly membership. I think the hardest part for me is the conditioning - I’m not used to doing circuit training much anymore, and push ups are tough for me. I hope I definitely improve over the next month. My boyfriend went with me today and it was fun :)
I don’t know why, but I was feeling really sad last night and today. All of my energy was spent preparing for the marathon. I poured my heart into training. I spent so much time tending to my leg so that I could make it through and see the finish line. I went to the expo two times and spent almost all day there getting myself excited. And then some bastard took that all away and ruined a...
Perhaps we have some closure now, and we can all sleep a little better tonight. Thanks to our law enforcement, Fire, EMS, and Federal personnel involved in bringing this man to justice. You are appreciated more than you understand. Here’s to the 2014 Boston Marathon. Boston Strong.
Entire city on lockdown.
School is closed and we are locked in our dorms. Can’t believe what is going on…
Yesterday, I ran the Boston Marathon.
Even though I was stopped at 25.5 miles and told to turn around because there were explosions at the finish line. Even though what was supposed to be a day of celebration and tradition turned into devastation and horror. I was having a hard time trying to find the words to describe my experience yesterday. There are so many layers of heartbreak to this tragedy. The race was tough for me before...
Pain is not getting better.
Getting a compression sleeve on Friday… I am so fucked =(
KT Tape or Compression sleeve?
I need some advice on which one might be better to run the marathon with. I am seriously considering this because my calf/shin did not feel good today at all only doing 1.6 miles. I think it helped on Sunday that I was wearing tights, so I’m wondering if a compression sleeve or KT Tape would be good to use. What is your experience, if any? Which one would you advise doing? I would...
The dangerous thing about the Boston Marathon is that once it’s in your...– Bill Rodgers
I don't know why...
But some days I just feel like I do all things wrong. I wish I didn’t let other people control my emotions so much.
Ran 8 miles tonight...
But it wasn’t comfortable because my calves are still unhappy and tight from Sunday. No weird tibia pain when I ran though, which is good. My motto for the next two weeks of taper: stretch, roll, ice, heat, repeat.
I don’t find myself unattractive, but I also don’t find myself attractive. I feel like I’m just sort of here, not something that really grabs anyone’s attention. Sort of like a chair. Or maybe a lamp. lol so accurate…
Anonymous asked: Hello dear, have you looked into ChiRunning? It is a method of running especially for those with injuries or at risk of injury that uses the principles of t'ai chi. It might be helpful for you. Have a wonderful day and best of luck with your marathon!
Maybe I’m just freaking myself out, but now I’m experiencing pain in my right tibia (top of my shin) when I apply pressure. I can almost feel a bump where the pain is located. I have NEVER felt this throughout any of my training, I just noticed this the day after my 22 mile run. I jogged for 2 miles yesterday and biked 8, and I wasn’t really feeling anything. I did however get...
runrunningrunner asked: Yes. You. Will. Now if it's an issue of other people's perception, well 1) you cannot control that and 2) if they cannot see your strengths, that's their problem (and their shortcoming). Work on the things that you need to, work on the things you can control and influence, work on the things that bring you joy and purpose. It will all be good. Now put that doubt on a raft and sent...
[[MORE]]I feel like I’ll never measure up.
Sometimes you meet someone and even though you never liked brown eyes before, their eyes are your favourite colour now and sometimes you meet someone who can make the sickest addictions seem beautiful and sometimes there’s some people you’d rather sit on a couch with and drink some gas station coffee and read your favourite books over and over while you forget that dinners on the stove so it...
Had a good breakfast this morning...
Which usually doesn’t happen on the weekends because I wake up late and then don’t feel like actually making something for myself, so I grab some dry cereal and a spoonful of peanut butter and call it a day…haha. Today I had 2 egg whites, black hazelnut dunkin donuts coffee, ezekial toast with some peanut butter and some plain non fat greek yogurt (I’ve been trying to eat...
One month until the Boston Marathon.
I’m getting those nerves again…
