Motivational Monday

Motivational Monday! Great post, Vanessa 🙂


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

I’ve only lost 4 lbs. What am I doing wrong? My foot isn’t healed. I didn’t work out. My ass and thighs are huge. I’ll never be happy with my body again.

I can’t even begin to describe how quickly those thoughts pop into my head. It’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 I finally paid off my balance for my 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 side (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?
