Formerly obese and unhappy, one day I decided I’d had enough. I’ve lost 160 lbs, become a 2x marathoner, triathlete, & I’m currently training for a 50 mile ultra marathon this August.

Getting happier & stronger each and every day.

It’s never too late to change your story.

If you’re a boy who walked up to younger/nerdier girls in the hallway during high school and said “hey my friend thinks you’re cute” and then burst into giggles along with said friend then I really hope you’re doing badly in life

people like this are the reason i cant believe anyone calling me pretty.

the last comment just hurts so bad

I live this

BANANA ICE CREAM. How do you make it?

  1. Slice up your bananas.
  2. Throw ‘em in the freezer until icy and cold.
  3. Blend blend blend.
  4. Add just a splash of milk.
  5. Devour.

Update since I’ve been gone. I try to work on not letting other people effect me but they do. I pick up their moods and they become my own. Anxiety is the dominant feeling lately. I’m struggling to ignore my isolation feeling. I feel like an extra everywhere I go. With my parents, my brother and his fiance, my best friends. I have single friends but sometimes that is worse. I don’t need to be married, I just miss having someone to talk too. My distractions are just that, a distraction. Temporary and reality comes rushing in. I know I’m whining, sorry. But I can’t inform every person in my life that I hurt sitting near their contentedness. I’m getting better at faking it. But I feel hollow. I’m in a rut I have to ride out and it just feels like it’s never ending. Sorry, sad memo over.


went to an American restaurant today!!!! ‘ello mate!!!!!! put forks in my hair to show my love for these Westerners’ food!!! Haha!!!!! Ha!!!! Ha!!! Ha!!! Ha  !

I find this hilarious. I however, never put hair sticks in my hair to show love for any asian foods. Is that where that came from?!

Hugelkultur, meaning “hill culture” in German, is a method of raised bed gardening that uses decaying wood as a basis for building up a berm. Berms are useful in directing the flow of water, and protecting more delicate plants from prevailing wind damage.

For this simple hugelkultur garden, I have piled sticks and wood, covered them in compost, planted my shrubs, and mulched the resulting berm first with a layer of newspapers, and second with a layer of wood chips. 

As the wood breaks down, it will create a rich soil with plenty of air pockets, allowing for excellent drainage and root penetration for the plants planted in the mound.

Hugelkultur raised beds are a form of “no-dig” garden (like the straw bale gardens) making them a good choice for those with impaired mobility or strength. They also sequester carbon, and provide a handy use for all of the trimmings from pruning and hedge maintenance.

My yard has poor drainage, so building up the soil is the only sustainable way to utilise the space without creating a pond. Hugelkultur beds provide exceptional drainage for plants that don’t like “wet feet” (ie. waterlogged root systems).
