For the past month, I have been participating in a womens’ wellness challenge. We were encouraged to set goals, but not just big lofty goals. Our goals had to be specific and measurable. It is one thing to say you want to feel more balanced in life, but how do you get there? Do […]
Hello World? Are you still there? I feel like we haven’t talked in awhile and I’ve missed you. I know you’ve been busy with all the worldly stuff and I’ve been busy trying to figure out this life balance stuff now that I have a 7 month old son. My son is doing well. He […]
Yesterday I wore an old race shirt because I read about an idea on Facebook. The idea was simple. It asked runners everywhere to show their support for the Boston Marathon by wearing an old race shirt. The one I chose to wear was my first Nike Women’s Half Marathon shirt from 2005. I wear […]
Create a vision board to reclaim your health, fitness and overall wellness goals. I first heard about vision boarding from a former co-worker. The topic came about during a difficult and yet opportune time in my life. I had just gone through a horrible breakup that left me feeling stranded and confused. I managed […]
Whenever my husband and I have to drive somewhere that is more than an hour, we listen to an audio book. One recent book we have been listening to is The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg. The book explains why habits exist and how they can be changed. One segment of the book caught […]
My book club is currently reading Snow Rising by Matt Baldwin. The book is thought provoking and compelling, as the philosophy offered challenges your own personal beliefs. For example, consider today’s inspirational quote. What feelings does the quote instantly bring forth? Are they positive feelings or feelings of dread? Are you perusing choices past or […]
When my husband and I were looking at houses, we knew we wanted a place with a backyard. A place where I could plant a garden — in the ground. Imagine our excitement when we found our current home that came with two lemons trees, two apple trees, a plum tree, a yellow grapefruit tree, […]
If your health were a picture book what would it look like? Be honest, would it be full of photos of everything sweet or would it be balanced with vegetables and exercise? I think mine would start with a picture of a gallon of water, and then proceed to photo of an endless road covered […]
Bo Bennett, Inspirational quote. Without initiative, leaders are simply workers in leadership positions.
What are you still hanging on to?
For me these last two weeks have been challenging and, yes, difficult. The chemistry class I am taking (which is one of four classes required to apply for a graduate program in Nutrition) has been challenging. I easily spend 15 to 20 hours a week studying for this class. As a result, I can see […]
I’m curious about a lot of things. I’m the person who likes to ask “why”, which sometimes irritates my loved ones because I am always probing. However, once my curiosity is satiated, I move on to the next questioning bubble in my thoughts. My current curiosities have to do with breastfeeding and immunizations, which […]
Changing how we are sounds simple enough and yet many of us fall back into old routines, habits, and comforts. I know it happens to me, too. Changing how we are is changing how we think, perceive and act — from our personal health goals to whatever else we wish to change.
Does the thought of working out sometimes seem tedious? Running the same trail every other day a little lack luster? Repetition is boring. We become complacent and without challenge we fail to evolve – mentally, physically, spiritually. Today’s inspiration asks you to mix in a bit of creative fun in achieving your health goals. For instance, […]
