My best advice to the world:
Don’t make any life altering decisions if its not 100% what you want. Don’t do something to be with some one or for someone if its not truly what you want. Through out your life the only person you have to continue to live with… Is yourself.

There’s something about running in the rain that is so refreshing. It keeps me from overheating, yes. But its more than that. Perhaps it is my love of the rain that makes it so pleasurable, perhaps its something more. Maybe it was the fact that the rain made my skin feel slippery and it didnt feel so bad when my thighs rubbed together as I ran. They have never even touched eachother until about a year ago.. maybe it was the fact that i could see it was down pouring but it took me a while to get soaked… i felt like i was outrunning the rain drops or something…
I went for a run in the rain today and it was such a great experience. I usually give up when I’m running. Today, was different. I kept on pushing. I ran for probably 20 solid minutes. I know that doesn’t seem like much- but for me (recently) it is. I ran through my neighborhood. A little ways down my road there is a loop off of it. I decided to run some laps through this side neighborhood. There is another road branching off of it, that I always get so excited to see, but then I realize its not my road yet and I have to keep on going. I will admit, there were times my jog was so slow, I could have speed walked faster, but I felt I needed to keep pushing. The second to last lap was the HARDEST. I felt I couldn’t keep going. I told myself I couldn’t run anymore. I forced myself to the stop sign and walked back toward my apartment. As I walked I thought, well… at least I did more laps that I ever have before. Then I thought.. wait, I was the only one telling myself I couldn’t do it. there was no one there to tear me down, just me. I was the problem. How could anyone believe in me if I didn’t believe in me. So when I found myself back at the start of the circle again (there is about 5 houses between the first side street and where it let’s out on a second street) I turned back in, and a jogged. I powered through it. I kept on telling myself I was a champion and I could do it. It was the easiest lap of the run. after that lap i walked a lap to cool down. I got a chance to reflect on the beauty of nature through the rain. it was amazing. after that cool down lap, i found myself determined to do one more. I didnt jog this time, I ran.. really ran. I got about 3/4ths around and had to stop and walk, but hey, i was proud of myself. I was active for 50 minutes running/jogging/walking. It’s supposed to rain all this week. Hopefully this can get me in a routine and i will be able to jog without the rain. :)
oooo and I also baked some carrots for a snack when I got back. I tossed them in some honey, evoo, ginger (in powder form), and minced garlic. Then i sprinkled a little basil on them after i baked them. I never realized basil was a sweet herb, its such a dark green leaf- crazy!
happy rainy days everyone, and thank you for reading! xoxo
I feel like I’m in a funk. Something needs to change but I don’t know what. Hmmm. Time to do some evaluating because I’ve been feeling a little down this week.

The last few days I’ve been reflecting a lot. I feel so lucky to have awesome friends, an even better boyfriend and an amazing family.
Thank you God for letting me grow up in America, and even more so… in Maumee, Ohio. Thank you for the parents who loved me, gave me a good home, good morals, and raised me right. Thank you for both of my circles of friends. Thank you for not letting me travel down a road of destruction. Thank you for giving me the brains to succeed academically, and get out of any bad situations. Thank you for the path that lead me to the LOVE of my life. For him, I cannot thank you enough.
In his name we pray…

I think I want to start a food blog of all my different recipes I cook + pictures and difficulties, modifications, suggestions for cooking. I’m obsessed with cooking right now. I need to stop blowing up my Instagram with food pix!!!
It’s 3:30 in the morning.. I woke up about an hour ago from a crazy dream I was having about zombies. I was hiding in a grocery store with a random group of people. The zombies eventually broke through the doors. Running from one I threw a loaf of bread at it (why the f would I choose bread?????) but the zombie stopped, stroked it, and sat down and cuddled with it. We found out the zombies loved soft fluffy things. We all scrambled to the bread aisle and created an assembly line to pass out bread. Eventually all zombies were laying down using bread as pillows. I guess chasing people all day/night would make anyone tired. We then went and found blankets and covered them up. The zombies fell asleep. We used arrows (quieter than guns) to shoot them in the head and make them sleep forever. I woke up in a panic, so freaking hot. I tossed and turned- couldn’t cool down. I checked the weather on my phone and it’s SIXTY-ONE DEGREES right now!!!!! So, I opened a window and I’m enjoying the breeze. Still restless tho. This made me a lil sleepy tho. Hope I can fall back asleep soon. My alarm goes off in 2.5 hours…
I am really excited about the plans I have set up for dinners/lunches the rest of this week and all of next! lots of crockpot stuff! This means I am going to HAVE to make myself wash it every night so I can make food the next day! I think that by continuing to eat at home and making sure my meals have lean meats in them and lots of veggies either in them or on the side I should be able to splurge and have delicious cheese and some candy bars too. As long as I get 30 minutes of exercise in that day, I will allow my self something “naughty” Idk I think its a good plan. We’ll see if it works :)
