week in review: stuff and things

Linking up with Meghan over at Clean Eats, Fast Feets. (I’ve been seeing some of her food pics on FB. They make me hungry!) What did I do this week? Um… Worked 40 hours at the day job. Got in 3 cardio workouts plus one strength training session (playing hooky today in favor of mentally… Continue reading week in review: stuff and things

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

week in review: the big easy

Linking up with Meghan over at Clean Eats, Fast Feets today. So, I spent July 4th weekend and half of last week in New Orleans visiting my family. Baby Brother went with me, and we had a good–if sweltering–time. And I took lots of pics, for a change! I was greeted with this smiling face… Continue reading week in review: the big easy

building consistency

So, as I mentioned yesterday, I joined a gym last week. I haven’t worked out in…okay, months, because of being so busy with school, but I had decided that working on my health and fitness would have priority this summer. (Yes, and I need to lose some weight, too, but I’m way more into the… Continue reading building consistency

making paper

…or “paper,” as Baby Brother says. (Trust me, you can just about see the air quotes when he says it. I don’t know why he even bothers to react to anything I do. He’s never going to understand me.) Anyway. So, as a former environmental biology major, you’d assume that recycling was pretty important to… Continue reading making paper

simplifying is harder than it looks

One of my resolutions/goals for the year is “Continue to simplify.” I love to read books and blogs about people living in tiny houses and apartments, on getting rid of the extraneous things in your life, about de-cluttering….it all sounds so fresh and exciting. In practice, it’s really…hard. I have a confession to make:  I… Continue reading simplifying is harder than it looks
