Wonderful 2017

Happy New Year! Well, 2017 wasn’t my year for blogging. I really needed some mental rest and just drop some things for a while and the blog happened to be one of them. But things are turning around lately and I think I am ready to get back into the swing of things. So let’s start with a 2017 Recap and hope I can get

February 2017 Goals

First, let’s recap January a bit. I’ve learned a few things:

I’m not in any sort of fitness routine. Afternoons aren’t working and mornings are soooo early. My eating is getting better. I’m cooking more and my restaurant choices are getting better as well. I need to drink more water (story of my life). I need to get up and MOVE more during the day.

Starting off 2017 Right

Hello!!! All those thin promises of blogging. Well, better late then never. I am working on getting a regular schedule again. Not just for blogging but for fitness too. Today would have been alright except for a mid-day detour from work. But that isn’t important today. What is is my workout! I made sure to make it a priority to hit the gym this afternoon.

I’ve done this kind of race before (AC April Fool’s Day Jester’s Challenge 2015). I had a much better fitness base to work with then, but barely

June 2016 Goals

So many blogs to post! I took photos all week for another What I Ate Wednesday post but I have more important things to discuss!

First, I want to mention that my dad graduated from Seminary school over the weekend! So proud of him.

We drove out to a monastery in Canaan, Pennsylvania for the ceremony. It was a really nice time.

Now, on

Mid-March Goals Update

This week went by so quickly! Monday started off well with the gym but then I got incredibly sick after lunch. I think the stew I had went bad. Yuck. Luckily it was short lived and I was pretty much back to normal Tuesday. Today though, I’m feeling down again with a sniffle and sore throat. It is probably allergies as I usually get them
