12 Weeks Out: Reinvention

If there’s one thing I’m not, its complacent. From my career to late-night trolling through edX courses, I always have my next move in the crosshairs, hunting with a permit that never expires.  Its just in my blood. But this week, I found myself, well, not being myself. I was showing signs of being a little […]

My week: Tiny Wins: I came across a quote this week that really resonated with me: “Perseverance is not a long race; it is many short races one after the other,” (Walter Elliot).  Think about that for a second. Thousands of tiny wins. Every day. […]

Week 11: Low Carb Character

The last 7 days have been a roller coaster in every sense of the word. The lows were tear-jerkingly low and the highs euphorically high.

Week 9: Pep talks

Week 9. The first half was my usual adrenaline-pumped, “watch me kick my own ass and love it” kind of week. The end of the week, however, brought sudden and spirit-crushing obstacles. Usually my posts can be characterized by positivity and triumph but for the sake of transparency, I won’t hide or leave out the tough parts of this journey. Here’s the […]
