week in review: prep time

Linking up with Meghan over at Clean Eats, Fast Feets for the feeling of accomplishment. Gearing up for my classes to start next week, so I’m trying to stay on top of things in general so I don’t start off my last undergraduate semester behind. This week, I worked 2 full days at the day… Continue reading week in review: prep time

living vicariously

…or, seeking inspiration in far-off places. For someone who barely watches TV, I’ve been watching a lot of it over the past week. The Olympics, of course. Volleyball and gymnastics are my favorite, but I’ll watch other things as well. Usually while repeating “How do they DO that?” The gymnastics have been astonishing. (Except for… Continue reading living vicariously

week in review: stuff and things

Linking up with Meghan over at Clean Eats, Fast Feets. (I’ve been seeing some of her food pics on FB. They make me hungry!) What did I do this week? Um… Worked 40 hours at the day job.

goals check-in

Since the year is more than halfway over (like, a month ago), I decided to do a brief re-cap of my progress on my personal goals for the year. They were: 1) Finish B.A. with all A’s. 2) Get to a healthy weight. 3) Run a half-marathon. 4) Continue to simplify. 5) Pay off Visa… Continue reading goals check-in

week in review: cats, cupcakes, and compadres

Linking up with Meghan, over at Clean Eats, Fast Feets today. Fairly productive week over here, this past week, with a few unexpected surprises thrown in for good measure. Got in all of my workouts for the week:  four cardio sessions, plus two strength-training sessions. Somewhere in the neighborhood of 65,000 steps for the week.… Continue reading week in review: cats, cupcakes, and compadres

zucchini and cupcakes

I need help, apparently. I obviously do not know the correct way to make “zoodles.” This doesn’t really seem like a problem, does it? But I’m trying to limit my carbs to healthier ones instead of sugar-laden ones. Brief pause to ogle these cupcakes, once of which I consumed yesterday,  that were obviously full of heaping… Continue reading zucchini and cupcakes
