My Mother’s Niche 30 Miles in 30 Days challenge is in the books. Though I only ran a few of the miles, I added an extra 30 miles over the month of September. It wasn’t much, and with all that has been going on lately, it has been tough. but I’m happy that I was able to finish this challenge. Go me! What’s up next for the month of October, weddings, moving, grad school, and travel! Wish me luck!
It feels as though the perfect storm is brewing with my graduate classes in full swing, the move officially ready to move into starting October 1, and the start of the quarter on October 2. I couldn’t have planned the … Continue reading →
* Sometimes it feels like the hits just keep on coming. Bad things happen in threes, right? Try daily. But I feel like the universe is trying to find a way to balance things out….
* I can no longer watch Extreme Guide to Parenting. I refuse to watch shows that make me feel that angry or judgemental. I just need to move on and save that time and energy for my real life.
* As we prepare to move, I hope for a quieter neighborhood. I’ve loved this place, but the second I opened the window tonight to get some fresh air, I heard bass from someone’s car music and road noise from Truxel. As long as the are no barking dogs (knocking on wood now), I will be more content. Fingers crossed for us!
* I’m watching The Little Mermaid to sing and relax my brain from all the reading and work I did with my class group tonight. Veg…but only for a little while. Time to start packing!
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.
As some of you may know, my husband and I like to move. When we met, I was living in a crappy little apartment downtown, that I really did love for the most part. Toward the end of our time there, … Continue reading →
