In the past, I have always had issues with food. Yes, in the sense that I binge ate, but more so that a lot of foods caused stomach pain and bloat. Did I care? Not really!

I was told once by my Cooperative Teacher (CT) during student teaching that she often wrote the answers for certain students on tests. It wasn’t that she gave them the answer, but they dictated what they wanted to say. They struggled so much with hand-writing that in many cases the test became frustrating and overwhelming.

When it comes to running, I definitely have a love-hate relationship. It takes a lot to get me going and even when I’m out there I usually am hating life for the first mile or so.

I was pleasantly surprised to find I… Read More
Hi all! I know it’s been awhile since my last post, but I’m going to try to do better – I PROMISE! Over the past six months I started running seriously again. I always start my training and quit for some reason or another after just a few weeks! This time, however, I was determined to have a different outcome. This time I wouldn’t let myself quit because of timing issues. This… Read More
I’ve never been one to do much cooking. Fast food or top ramen was always so much easier and tasted just fine. I knew I needed to make a change though, if I was going to live healthier. Heres my start to much healthier eating: Turkey Chili is amazing in the winter and warms you right up. Besides some prepping, it’s so easy to just throw everything in the crockpot and let… Read More
