week in review: low key

Linking up with Meghan over at Clean Eats, Fast Feets for this one. I don’t feel like I was super productive this week, but that may be because I was off on Monday (because of the half marathon last Sunday…wasn’t sure how sore I’d be, so I took it off). I ended up scheduling a… Continue reading week in review: low key

week in review: cooking, cleaning, and challenges

Linking up with Meghan over at Clean Eats, Fast Feets. This week was fall break for me, and it’s been a pretty good week, apart from a near-meltdown at work last Monday. I got my grade for my Writing Commercial Fiction  class:  I made a 90! (Which is an A- at my school, not an… Continue reading week in review: cooking, cleaning, and challenges

tiny changes, much happiness

I’m playing hooky from the gym today, in favor of keeping caught up on my week. And avoiding people. Also very important. (I’m an introvert. Sometimes people exhaust me.) Last week, I went into the kitchen to get a glass of water…and 20 minutes later, finished cleaning off the counter/rearranging the clutter. Distracted much? Yep.… Continue reading tiny changes, much happiness

week in review: blah, blah, blah

Linking up with Meghan over at Clean Eats Fast Feets to get my link on. I worked a lot this week (over 40 hours). I alternated between sleeping 10 hours a night and 6 hours. No explanation. Got in 3 cardio sessions, and am up to 22.5 pounds lost in 12 weeks! Got some school… Continue reading week in review: blah, blah, blah

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:success, of a sort

Linking up with Meghan over at Clean Eats, Fast Feets to feel like I accomplished something for the week. Usually I have an overly ambitious idea of what I can get accomplished during the week. This week, I feel like I did much, much better at actually accomplishing what I wanted to. I tried something a… Continue reading week in review:success, of a sort
