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

paleo wannabe

As my life has been more chaotic than normal lately (work, school, the process of finding a house and preparing to move, upcoming vacation), health and fitness has been on the backburner.  I’m still reading some health blogs and storing up ideas for after vacation/moving, when I have time to think.  My plan then is… Continue reading paleo wannabe

week in review: did I really accomplish anything?

I’m actually not sure what, if anything I managed to accomplish this week, but I’ll give it a shot: worked 3 days/36 hours on my feet.  Ugh. got in all my planned workouts for the week (four). managed to take a nap just before these killer storms hit maybe 30 miles from me.  Note to… Continue reading week in review: did I really accomplish anything?

doing too much

In case you’re wondering where I’ve been (you know, all three of you that are reading this), I need to make a confession: I tend to over-commit myself. Basically, I need about 5 extra hours in every day to get everything done I need and/or want to do. Here’s a list of things I need… Continue reading doing too much
