The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,300 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 22 trips to carry that many people.

2014 in review

I have put off the writing of this review for almost a month now. Every time I think about it I get all sad and upset. Honestly? I get frustrated because I thought there would be so much more. It’s very difficult for me not to be hard on myself. It’s difficult for me to remember that I have been SERIOUSLY ill 3 times (to the point where my doc BEGGED me to be hospitalized once), I’ve been on prednisone three times (which used to be an automatic thirty pound gain EVERY time). I’ve had two severe ankle sprains and a strain in my wrist which has me currently in a cast.

So let’s start with some stats:


And some pics:

I don’t understand how I am BIGGER in the now pic (in almost every measurement) but I look so much smaller… the only thing I think looks worse in the now pic is my biceps… they look less firm… but my shoulders… my belly… my ankles and neck… I don’t understand

And now some stuff:

first one handed handstand (wall supported)

First mud run 482/490 4.77 miles (from GPS) 2 hr 20 min
