My brain hurts. I am exhausted. I told myself that as soon as Annie went to bed last night, I’d sit down at my computer and hammer out as much work as possible. Instead, I sat down and stared at […]

Do What's Going To Make You Happy

A few weeks ago, Brian and I ventured out to the North Fork of Long Island for a day. A day to chill. A day to celebrate 30. A day to actually hang out together in a non-cramped, stress-free, “no […]

A WednesDAY In The Life

Date: July 29, 2014 at 7:28 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 66

Haha. WednesDAY. So this blogging thing. Eesh. I’ve been not awesome about it, which is sad (probably only for me) because I’ve had plenty to share. I’m training for a marathon! I have a coach! I’m the healthiest I’ve been […]

Happy

So here’s something I have been wanting to write for a very long time: I am happy. Not just “I had a good day today!” happy, but more like, “I’ve had a lot of really good days in a row, […]

Date: January 28, 2013 at 8:59 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 55

If 2012 was the year of “making all the mistakes,” then 2013 is the year in which I learn from all of them. With almost 1/12th of the year in the bag, I’m feeling really good about 2013. I know […]

As soon as I crossed the finish line at the Hamptons Marathon, I was ready to sign up for my second attempt at 26.2. I set my sights on the Eugene Marathon on April 29, but I didn’t fully commit […]

Those Two Monumental Moments

Date: June 12, 2012 at 9:15 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 60

There are always two exciting, monumental, OMG-so-encouraging milestones that happen as I’m coming back from a Crohn’s flare-up. When these things eventually occur, I’m all, “Oh Hell yeah, I’m back, I’m awesome, life is sweet, you can’t stop the beat.” […]

All I Needed Was A Long Weekend

Date: May 29, 2012 at 9:15 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 32

Tyler says hi. At this time last week, I was a bit of a mess. I was Crohnsing hard, I couldn’t really eat and my night sweating had nothing to do with humidity. My fever climbed well into the 100-degree […]

Thankful Things Thursday: On Learning To Do What's Best For Ali

Hehe. So remember yesterday when I wrote about “the night sweats not being too bad” and how I luckily “didn’t totally sweat through my new sheets.” I take it back. I take it all back. Oops. I’m Crohnsier than ever […]
