This month was completely upended before it even began. I initially wanted to add additional activity to the end of my day. Nothing intense necessarily, or even super long. I just didn’t like the habit I’d gotten into of coming home and zoning out in my comfy chair, completely depleted of energy for my entire … Continue reading 10 Months of 30 Days…Listening to my body.
10 Months of 30 Days…Leveling Up
This challenge started with such promise lol. The idea was to work on developing my Instructional Design skills because I want a plan for what's next in my life. I don't think it's ever been a secret to anyone that knows me that teaching was never going to be the last stop for me. I … Continue reading 10 Months of 30 Days…Leveling Up
So, This is a Resort…
Those that know me at all or have been following my blog for any length of time know that I take solo vacations frequently. Maybe frequently isn't the right word because I live on teacher pay, but I try to go once a year on a solo vacation to regroup and decompress. This year I … Continue reading So, This is a Resort…
10 Months of 30 Days…Flourless February
Before I really get into this, I want to make one thing clear: Flourless February is NOT the same as low carb. This is about not eating refined flour. The brain and body need carbohydrates to function properly; it’s just about eating the right carbs. Ok, moving on Coming into this challenge, I didn’t eat … Continue reading 10 Months of 30 Days…Flourless February
10 Months of 30 Days…Stretch Yo’Self!
A few years ago I was in a pretty bad car accident. I rotated between the chiropractor and massage therapist until I was able to walk right again without pain and eventually run and workout again. However, since then, it’s not uncommon for me to have my pelvis, hips, and ribs out of place from … Continue reading 10 Months of 30 Days…Stretch Yo’Self!
10 Months of 30 Days…Read!!
This month's challenge was to take time every day to read for pleasure. I recognize that to some it might seem silly having this as a challenge. I love to read, and one would think that because I love to read that I do it often. Unfortunately, that's not the case. My job makes it … Continue reading 10 Months of 30 Days…Read!!

10 Months of 30 Days: Get Outside!
To some, it may seem silly that I picked a challenge like this: go outside for 30 minutes every day. But honestly, I’m amazed at how easily I’ve become somewhat of a shut-in. I go to work; I come home, and I may never leave the house again until the next morning when I go … Continue reading 10 Months of 30 Days: Get Outside!
10 Months of 30 days: Sugar-free September
I have just completed my second 30-day challenge: Sugar-free September. I chose this challenge for a few reasons. The first being, like most people, I have an addiction to sugar. More specifically, I have a pastry and cookie problem. The second reason, which took me a little longer to figure out, was that I realized … Continue reading 10 Months of 30 days: Sugar-free September
10 months of 30 days…
I am a teacher. This means a lot of different things to me, but the biggest one is that my work-life balance is non-existent for about 10 months of the year. These last few years it’s been closer to 12 since I was moving and transitioning every summer. What I do have, I fight for … Continue reading 10 months of 30 days…
