week in review: new year/new you?

Linking up with Meghan at Clean Eats, Fast Feets for the Week in Review. I hope everyone had a good Christmas and New Year. Mine was fine. Very low key. The temps dropped on New Year’s Eve, down into the 20s, which does not happen in this part of Texas very often. And it was… Continue reading week in review: new year/new you?

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

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
