Motivational Monday

Motivational Monday! Great post, Vanessa ๐Ÿ™‚


I constantly struggle with this! Actually, was beating myself up just a little whole ago.

Iโ€™ve only lost 4 lbs. What am I doing wrong? My foot isnโ€™t healed. I didnโ€™t work out. My ass and thighs are huge. Iโ€™ll never be happy with my body again.

I canโ€™t even begin to describe how quickly those thoughts pop into my head. Itโ€™s like second nature to me. I have gotten much better. But I have to learn patience and perseverance will get me to where I want to be. It will come.. Eventually.

Scotland in 62 Days!!


Today Iย finally paid off my balance for myย study abroad trip to Scotland this summer! My university is taking a two-week excursion overseas during the Edinburgh Arts and Music Festival. We have a wide itinerary filled full of places and things to do. I was so excited that the trip was being offered again before I graduated. I’m also taking an independent study course focused on Communication in Scotland. I’m pumped to see what will be in store with that class!

I am also half Scottish on my dad’s sideย (Clan Campbell of Argyll). I don’t care how I get there…I’m going to my clan’s castle at Inveraray.

Hello, June!


I cannot believe it is June already! We’re at the halfway point of 2014, and I can say that this has been one of the most successful and rewarding years of my life. Now that I am into summer classes and summer work, I can put forth more effort into updating this blog more often. I still have to do three race recaps and start writing about my upcoming MCM marathon training, which will start in July. (If anyone has any ideas about “pre-training” for the next few weeks, let me know! I feel lost without a little structure.)

I love reading blogs, especially fashion blogs. I am constantly fascinated how these bloggers look so polished online. I think it will be a summer goal to educated myself about the methods they use; learning HTML, improving my photography, etc.

Does anyone have any fun plans for June/the summer? Races, vacations, racecations?
