How I’m building workout consistency

I used to be the consistency queen, but things have changed in my life. I’m not consistent at much anymore due to stepping away from the systems that kept me on task. I’ve overfilled my to-do list, which has left me paralyzed. I hope that makes sense. Over the past six months, I’ve given myself too much grace to operate, which has left me in a place of not committing too much. Now that my schedule is less filled with PTA things, I have decided to get my life back on track, and I’m starting with my workout schedule. It…

Monthly Wrap-up #2 (February 2024)

Monthly Wrap-up #2 (February 2024)

Happy March! With the start of the new month, it’s time to recap the previous month. Overall, February was a good, healing month for me. I hate to sound like a Disney song, but “for the first time in forever,” I started feeling like myself again. February was a busy month. The PTA is doing a lot of firsts this year, so we hosted our first party/dance for the kids for Mardi Gras. This is the one thing I wanted to accomplish besides a better field day as PTA president. That took a lot of work, but the kids enjoyed…

February reading wrap-up of eight books and a reading slump

Let’s recap the books I read in February, which included eight books and a book slump. The book slump is questionable. All I know is I can’t get into any book I pick up. That’s a story for another time. Let’s get to the books I read and whether I liked them. Beartown by Fredrick Brackman (Beartown #1)  Rating: 4.5⭐ Beartown is like Friday Night Lights in a hockey town instead of a football town. The story focuses on what happens when loyalty and commitment are questioned after a tragic event in this small town.  I didn’t think I would…

Why I haven’t been running

Why I haven’t been running

You may have noticed, but the running content around here has become nonexistent. It’s sad, and there has been a hole in my life. I have developed other hobbies in life, like reading and Formula 1, but my heart is always with running.   After those unfortunate circumstances, I’ve found it harder to get back into running. My running did slow down over the past year long before that happened, but I was in an upswing.  I ran a 10K and half marathon in December 2023, but things stopped after that race. I haven’t even been able to edit my running…

Monthly Wrap Up 2024 #1 – January

It’s time to hit the highs and lows of the previous month. January was a hard month for me, and it became a time for moving forward instead of trying to set goals and meet achievements. January is always when people start resetting and seeking new adventures. I spent the month trying to feel like a normal person. At the end of December, I had a miscarriage at 11 weeks, and on December 29th, I had my D&C. This was a hard way to end and start a year. Having a miscarriage changed me considerably. When it happened, I took…
