TOL: change is hard

Linking up with Amanda at Running with Spoons for Thinking Out Loud. It’s the first week of January, so it seems like everybody is making changes:  to their diet, their exercise routine, to their life. It’s a little overwhelming, frankly. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a huge supporter of positive change, and, as a habitual… Continue reading TOL: change is hard

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.

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).
