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.

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

WIAW: All About Balance

I had planned on a few blogs this week and the next thing I knew, it was Tuesday night! Well, time for an edition of What I Ate Wednesday!

Things haven’t exactly been all grilled chicken and steamed broccoli lately…

You see, I’ve been enjoying myself a little too much lately in between the healthy meals.

A little bit of

Starting Anew with Healthy Habits

Happy Hump Day! So far, work has been going well. Everyone is really nice and open to help me out as I learn the software and everything else. It has been a lot of information but I am still enjoying it anyway. So far so good!

I figured before I started that I should just jump in with healthy habits right away. Sunday, Rob and

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

January 2016 Goals

Happy New Year! I completely missed the obligatory “New Year, New Me” blog post but that’s just not where I’m at right now anyway. I just don’t have any major goals for 2016 and I’m happy going day-by-day right now instead of trying to see any bigger than that. Really, in 2016, I’d just like to be healthier, find a job, and be happy. That’s
