I Did That Thang!

Let’s not spend time talking about how long it’s been since I’ve posted…a while sums it up. But 2017 so far has seen big changes.  So far, biggest of all has been my birthday gift to myself this year: finishing … Continue reading

Manic Monday

RunKeeper_Day15

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.

Personal Challenge

Productivity is at the utmost of importance right now because I have so much on my plate. Especially at work. I have taken on additional duties and my time seems to be stretched so thin. This blog post, sadly, is me wasting time not doing dishes, cleaning the littler boxes, doing reading for my current set of classes, or getting an early jump on the next term that starts on Monday. But I feel I need to issue myself this challenge in a public forum. I need an official record of my promise to myself. In that way, it can become a promise to you too, the reader.  Continue reading

Changes for the Better

My husband and I were talking yesterday and I was telling him how my outlook on tasks, goals, and projects has changed since becoming a mother. What I realized is that because of the permanence of becoming a parent, and more specifically going through pregnancy, I see now how important it is to follow through. Continue reading

Working Mama Guilt

I’m sure many other working mamas feel the same guilt that I do. We don’t get to be here each day to experience each and every precious moment with our little ones. While I don’t feel like I’ve missed anything major, I’m sure it’s bound to happen or that I will start to feel it more as he gets older and starts doing more. Right now we are working on sitting up and I’m glad I got to be here when he sat up on his own. And then pretty much rolled over for the first time the next minute! Too bad my hubby missed it 😛 I’ll take what I can get! Continue reading
