December 2014 Goals

I haven’t been making monthly goals because I haven’t had the time or energy to commit to them. School ends next week though and I only have 2 finals so I should be home free after that to commit to my health. So these are less of December Goals and more like Last 3 Weeks of December Goals. I’ll use this week as a warm

My husband works but his income covers the minimum expenses. I depend on student loans for all school expenses and in the end, there is

This Week With Me: Sewing & Ice Cream Hats

This past week has been pretty crazy!  Last Wednesday, I left my house at 6:30AM and walked in the front door at 12:30 AM (as in Thursday morning).  I was beat and went to bed as soon as I could but was awoken all night by calf spasms from my Body Beast Legs workout on Tuesday.  This was the start of sleep deprivation for me.
