Dedicate: Learn

My yoga practice this morning was focused on what you learn. You live… you learn. Which immediately took me back to my freshman year and had me singing this song. “Oh, oh, oh I, recommend getting your heart trampled on to anyone, yeah I, recommend walking around naked in your living room, yeah Swallow it […]

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: Grace

Just in the last couple of years, I have been fascinated by the idea of Grace.  I have been known to be really hard on other people, but no more than I am hard on my ownself (this should be a word). Today my yoga practice was about grace.  Allowing some for yourself.  Not just […]

Make It Happen Monday 1/14

What are your goals for this week?? Mine are to continue strong on the low-carb diet.  My clothes are already fitting so much different and I am feeling fantastic. I want to make it back to the mat all 7 days this week.  The Yoga with Adriene Dedicate has really given me life in 2019. […]

For me it means creating space for ideas, people and adventures that I can’t even imagine yet.  Creating space for change […]

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 […]

Dedicate: Expand

Today was day 10 of 30.  I am a third of the way done with this 30 day yoga challenge and I am feeling great. The theme today was “expand.”  Giving a fuller version!  The idea that when we take time we can give more.  So will deep breaths and moving with our bodies, we […]

First Monday of 2019

Last Monday found us lazily in bed for awhile.  Then off to a couple of breweries and some dinner, before we headed home to ring in the New Year. This Monday our alarm went off at 5:30.  I had prepped the coffee pot and packed my husband’s lunch last night, so I didn’t have much […]
