week in review: from NOLA, with love

Linking up with Meghan at Clean Eats, Fast Feets for the Week in Review. The past two weeks have been full of more craziness. I’ll try to stick to the highlights.

thinking out loud: so many wrong things

Linking up with Amanda at Running with Spoons for Thinking Out Loud. -I made it through Halloween with no trick-or-treaters. This is a good thing for a couple of reasons:  I do NOT need candy in the house, as I have little self control when it comes to chocolate. And some of the people who’ve… Continue reading thinking out loud: so many wrong things

my basic bullet journal

Unless you’re living under a rock, you’ve probably heard of bullet journals. When I first heard about them, I was intrigued. I mean, I’m moderately obsessive about making lists and getting things done (Baby Brother is laughing right now), so a way to stay organized and keep an ever-changing to-do list in the same place… Continue reading my basic bullet journal

week in review: turning tides (I hope)

Linking up with Megan at Cleat Eats Fast Feets today. I’ve had pretty productive week. Not off-the-charts, not in the dumps, so it’s all good. This week, I… Worked 40+ hours at the day job. The usual beginning-of-the-month craziness. But I get a four-day weekend next week! Read two books, Trust by Kylie Scott and… Continue reading week in review: turning tides (I hope)

weekly review: the truth hurts

From July 6th of last year to around mid-October, I made huge changes in my diet and exercise routine (which had been mostly slim to none before that). I started running with the Couch to 5k app, cut out processed carbs for the most part, and lost 28 pounds, ran a 5k trail run, and… Continue reading weekly review: the truth hurts

today is for gratitude (thinking out loud)

Linking up with Amanda at Running with Spoons for this bit of randomness. Okay, not randomness. Not to me. Today, June 1st, is my four-year survival anniversary. Four years ago, I had a major stroke, without warning, and I almost died. The doctors pretty much said I’d die. Fortunately, they weren’t the ones in control.… Continue reading today is for gratitude (thinking out loud)
