Good morning, readers! It’s been a quiet, relaxing Sunday morning. I slept in until 7:00 a.m., enjoyed a cup of coffee while reading a book. I then baked some muffins, watched an episode of a new series on Netflix, The Chair (highly recommend!) and went outside with the dogs for a bit because it looks… Continue reading Not later, not someday, NOW
Please excuse my long absence, but let me assure you that everything is fine. Well, sort of. The last time I blogged, I was getting to ready to have surgery and our youngest daughter was going to have surgery as well. Also during that time, my employer was asking everyone to come back to work… Continue reading Everything’s fine.
Thank you to everyone who expressed their kind words of love and support for our family following Tuesday’s post. We are still waiting on a surgery date for Kayla, but meet with her doctor on Monday and hope to know more after that visit. I had my preoperative work-up appointment on Wednesday and learned more… Continue reading Expected recovery process
This is a post that I never wanted to have to write again. I’ve debated whether or not to even share this. I’m just pissed, and I’m just done with it. However, I’ve kept my life on this blog pretty open and transparent, and I’ve shared lots of important milestones, whether they were good or… Continue reading June sucks.

Let’s Get Up! is a 4-week, 6 days a week program that incorporates dance moves, along with two days dedicated to strength training. The program is designed for beginners, but anyone can work up a sweat and build… Continue reading Let’s Get Up! Review
It’s crazy that a month has gone by since I last wrote a blog post! At that time, I was dealing with some neck issues; I was pretty sure that I had a herniated disc, but I had to wait to have an MRI to know for sure. I had my MRI and sure enough,… Continue reading Neck update
Last Thursday morning, I woke up with a painful, stiff neck. Man, I must have slept wrong, was what I thought. I decided to go ahead and do my workout, which was a cardio workout from 4 Weeks of The Prep, and included some burpees and ab exercises. I figured the movement would work out… Continue reading Injuries suck.
It’s a bit late, but I thought I’d write an update on how the first week of the 30-Day Challenge went. Just to recap, I have a list of tasks that I want to complete every day for 30 days. If I miss a task, I have to start over at Day 1. Here are… Continue reading Week 1 results of 30-Day Challenge
Today is going to feel like summer and I’m trying really hard to focus on tasks, but GAH it’s hard. I just want to sit outside and soak up the rays. I plan on taking a lunch break outside, though, and after the work day is over, I’ll be outside with a cool drink. Since… Continue reading 30-Day Challenge
A few weeks ago, I told you that I’d be writing about life lessons that I’m learning from our newest rescue dog, Luna. We adopted Luna from a rescue group when she was less than three months old. We noticed right away that she has a very shy and fearful personality. I should clarify that.… Continue reading It’s the small wins.
