A change is gonna come….tomorrow! With a mix of sadness and trepidation, I prepare to take on a new role. I recently accepted a position in the Dean’s Office as an International Academic Counselor on campus and will be starting … Continue reading
Happy July! Our office is about six weeks into our Biggest Loser competition and guess who this week’s big winner was…me! I was essentially the only one who lost. While I’m happy to have lost at all, my progress is … Continue reading

Happy Monday all! As you can see from my progress report above, I’m pretty much rocking my 30 Miles in 30 Days Challenge. I’ve been walking, jogging (rarely), and riding my bike. The bike is the best way for me to maximize calories burned and my time. I can get over 2 miles in the same 20 minutes I spend walking one mile. I can definitely feel the burn and work really hard at burning extra calories. I’m feeling proud of myself and motivated to stick with this challenge.
On the personal front, we have some promising news on the housing front. If all goes well, we’ll be moving into a new place early next month. The house is gorgeous and amazing. More than I think we deserve and maybe I’m still wrapping my head around it. Wish us luck that everything continues to go well and we end up happy and comfortable this time in October!
On the other end of the spectrum, I have to survive not only this week but the next few weeks as we gear up to move either way. Packing, cleaning, reading, papers, class, work….my head is spinning when I think about all of the things that I need to do in the next 3 – 4 weeks. It’s hard to think beyond that to weddings and holidays. Before I know it, 2015 will be here! This year has flown by but it has also been a pretty good one. I really hope we can finish this year strong.
