It Feels A Lot Like Monday

It is cold, dark, wet, and rainy.  I do not even have to be at school until tomorrow, but I am waking up to go to the gym for an 8 am workout! I have been off track for the past 3 weeks and am trying not to feel discouraged. On Saturday night I desperately […]

Push Yourself Over the EDGE

Let the games begin! I worked super hard the first half of the quarter and was dedicating my time to my workouts and studies.  I was so proud of the fact that I was even getting perfect attendance.  Unfortunately, ever since midterm week it feels like everything has been rapidly unraveling.

Be-YOU-tifully YOU Project: #35

Hello My Dear Darling Friends! This week was thankfully better than last week.  I was still dragging a little, but I got through it and feel like I made a full recovery.  What was I recovering from?!  I think I had to recover from reality.  The reality of my sad past and the reality of […]

Hello September

This summer has been  an exciting adventure! We finally sold our 1st house and took an amazing road trip through the United States with 2 cats, 2 cars, and my sister.  We both grew up in our home town and knew that we did not want to turn 30 there.  We wanted to travel to […]
