I Am A Coward

Yep, I said it.  I am a big fat coward. I realized this last night after returning home from All-Stars tryouts.  [SPOILER:  I didn’t make it.  😦 ] And, no I’m not saying this because of my performance last night.  I know that I have a lot of skills that I need to work on, … Continue reading

So, I’m Back…. Sorta.

I’m officially going to start blogging again. Why did I stop?  Things got hectic – life, derby, dissertation, the whole nine.  I loved blogging but just didn’t have the time to do it (and TBT) anymore.

After an involuntary fast for 15 hours, I was literally famished but I knew that I needn’t go overboard.  That would sorta defeat the purpose of my TBT goals.  So, I ate as if it was any other day – had my oatmeal at 8, ate a snack in the car coming from the grocery … Continue reading
