week in review: conquering my fears

Linking up with Meghan at Clean Eats, Fast Feets for the Week in Review. This was kind of a crazy week. Or, at least it felt crazy. I worked…I don’t know, somewhere around 45 hours this week. 15 1/2 of those hours were Friday. Yeah…My feet still hurt. Even more when I followed up on… Continue reading week in review: conquering my fears

stuff for runners (to read)

I read a ton of blogs:  food blogs, healthy living blogs, running blogs, organization/productivity blogs… I’ve found all sorts of tips, ideas, and inspiration from these blogs, and I love following along in the lives of these bloggers I’ve come to “know.” Reading blogs frequently gives me the motivation to make changes in my life… Continue reading stuff for runners (to read)

gym mystery

I actually didn’t procrastinate around the house this morning for too long. (Busy. I was busy. Promise.) Instead, I did several things that needed doing, and one project that accidentally happened. (Went in the kitchen to put something away, and ended up clearing off most of the stuff on top of the cabinet and reorganizing… Continue reading gym mystery

living vicariously

…or, seeking inspiration in far-off places. For someone who barely watches TV, I’ve been watching a lot of it over the past week. The Olympics, of course. Volleyball and gymnastics are my favorite, but I’ll watch other things as well. Usually while repeating “How do they DO that?” The gymnastics have been astonishing.

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
