Mid-Winter Break

Today is Mid-Winter Break for our public schools.  I mean not really a “break”, some years it has been a Friday and a Monday, some other districts have an entire week.  That being said, this year with 6 snow days, we don’t need much of a break. It started snowing here last night around 5:30pm […]

Wellness Wednesday Week 5

Happy Hump Day! I am at a standstill with my weight. Which I am actually very thankful for. I cheated on my low-carb way of eating Sunday for the Super Bowl. It was the first time I drank beer in over a month. I also indulged in pizza, breadsticks and chips. It was all worth […]

Best Life: Week 2

Well, we are now 2 full weeks into the new year. Which means I am 2 full weeks into being on the wagon. What does it mean to be on the wagon?  No beer, low-carbs, not-smoking and working out every day.  Also, things that help with my mental health like writing and reading every day. […]

Dedicate: Courage

I have had a lazy day today and it has been amazing.  All 6 kids are here and they are just enjoying each other’s company and have happily taken over the downstairs.  So, the hubs and I camped out in bed.  We stayed in jammies until about 20 minutes ago and binged on Netflix. Finally […]

Best Life: One Week In

Last week I wrote a post called Best Life where I talked about my health goals for the year. Every Wednesday I will check-in here, so you all can hold me accountable! I have done Yoga with Adriene for the last 8 days strong and plan to continue. Man, do my days just go better […]

Dedicate: Flow

Today was day 5 of my 30day Yoga Journey, Dedicate. The theme for today was flow. The flow of your body. Really just showing your movements and your breaths to flow together. This is in fact why yoga is so good for me. Focusing on my breathing and then coordinating that with my movements. You […]

Dedicate: Foundation

I went back to the mat again today.  2 days in a row for the first time in months and it felt fantastic. In case you missed it yesterday, I am doing a 30 day yoga journey!  This journey is by Yoga with Adriene.  Seriously, she is incredible.  Never tried Yoga, she will make you […]

Dedicate: Discern

Today I started my first 30 Day Yoga Journey of the year. It was wonderful to be back at the mat 49 minutes long and I needed every second. I connected back to my core, my breathe and my mind. I was asked this question…. why?? Why was I there for this journey? The answer […]

Best Life

Today is the first day of being back on the wagon!  The hubs and I are going back to the Keto diet.  I did this for about 5 months in 2017 and we did it for the greater part of 2018.  My body feels fantastic when we are eating this way.  Really from the inside […]

Charisma

The theme of my Yoga practice this morning was Charisma. The first thing that Adriene said this morning was that we were getting down to “Brass Tacks” which means to get down to the basics or the essentials. Adriene wanted to take us back to what it felt like to be a child.  To remember […]
