What I though was writers block, turned into a word vomit
I thought that I had nothing to say or report, but I think I was wrong. There is a lot on my mind but I can't seem to put it into words. I started this blog with the hope of being able to take some of the things that are on my mind and put them into words, and use that as a form of therapy. I also want to use this blog to share my love for running, nutrition, and wellness with my friends and family. I feel like I lack focus in my life, and am kind of all "over the place" with my thougts and feelings, and the things that I do. I am really good at starting little projects with good intentions but get bored with them pretty quickly and move onto something new. I can't sit still for more than about 30 minutes at a time and need constant stimulation, yet I am always feeling fatigued and tired. I would really like to learn how to gain a little more focus. Maybe writing this blog and trying to put in an entry every day at least will help me gain a little more discipline in my life. Maybe by putting my thoughts, fears, and anxieties down on "paper" will help me to realize my faults and strengths and gain more discipline. I never thought about writing a blog because it would be A) way too personal for me to share with people, and that scares me, or B) I wouldn't be able to commit to it, like I said, I have commitment issues with projects. But, Tim (my husband) suggested that I start this blog so that I could put some of my words down and help others in the process. I resisted at first in my traditional fashion and said "NO, I won't commit to this blog and will get tired of it in a few days", but because he knows me better than anyone, and knows that this will be good for me, I decided to start it. So, there you go. My very first blog entry. DONE! Now, I have to get ready for work. Hope this didn't bore you to tears....not sure who "you" are or if anyone is actually reading this, but maybe someone will someday.
I am a wife, a runner, a student, and an employee.
I began running a year ago (December 2007), and have been addicted to the sport ever since. Every time I go out for a run, I hope to get a little better, go a little farther, and learn a little more about myself inside and out. I started running after I experienced a major crisis in my life, the loss of my mom, and it has really helped me learn about my strengths and how to cope with all of my internal demons during such a hard time in my life. I feel that in a sense, running saved my life.
I am a full time student working towards a career in nutrition science. I am about to graduate from Tacoma Community College with my AAS and will be transfering to Bastyr University, a naturopathic school north of Seattle. My passion is nutrition, and exercise, and I will be doing something related to that for the rest of my life.
I am married to my best friend, and the man of my dreams, and we have spent the last 12 years of our lives together. I feel so fortunate to have him in my life and to have what we share.
