Find more bodyweight exercises at Greatist.com I can absolutely CAN fit this in twice a week, right? Odd how I can create a new money saving habit, a new kitchen cleaning habit, and can push myself to run greater & greater distances on the weekends (even every day of a 3-day version), yet I am...

Consumer Report – graze and Happify
Fun money update: $62.78 as of last weekend Workout update: Oh, well..not doing so well mid-week still. Only did a 20 minute weight & ab workout one night. But..I ran 4 miles of hills on Saturday and then I ran ELEVEN miles on Sunday!! Yet another PR 🙂 It was double the fun because my... Continue Reading →
Roses and Running and…Lease Extraction?
Heh - I was reaching for the alliteration to be complete in the title and just couldn't get there. New habit check in to start: $55 in the change kitty as of this weekend. However, work outs? Oh, utter fail. I was thrashed after the 10 mile run and the Wednesday half day run didn't... Continue Reading →
Overcoming mental obstacles
Motivation and fear are interesting things aren't they? The one pushes hard up against the other - who will win? Well, it seems funny to speak of 'fear' when it came to my rather basic accomplishment I managed to achieve yesterday 🙂 For so many, making a video is easy. Second nature even. Hell, I...

Taxes and the next new habit
Just a quick primer on what happened this month to your paycheck if you work for another company since I noticed more than one person ranting on Facebook with clearly NO CLUE what just happened. Back in 2009, as part of a budget deal, a Social Security payroll tax holiday was declared. They rolled back... Continue Reading →
Recovery is fun!
Especially when your boys are willing to spend many hours playing card games with you to break up the time spent reading on your new kindle or in front of the TV: We've had this game for awhile but at first our brains hurt or we were just too tired or something to want... Continue Reading →
New Habit Check In
We are on the Friday of week 2 of 2013 - so how are those new habits coming along? Lord knows I've got a couple of good excuses were I to not have chosen something so relatively easy to start off! It was precisely because of the Fumication this week and then Fibroid Eviction next... Continue Reading →
New Habits for 2013 – Let’s Do This Together!
Think of little everyday tasks (habits) you do already without needing any impressive amount of motivation or inspiration – brush your teeth, shower, scoop your cat’s litter box or take your dog for a walk. If you miss a day, you don’t get overly bummed; you just pick it right back up. Those are all... Continue Reading →
Great Fence (and planter) project – DONE!
December 30th was a day of off and on showers so I had to take a break from staining. I did take the time for a typical longer Sunday morning trail run. Couldn't join Renee in her 105 minute run at Lake Hodges, but I did throw my new Camelback on for a trial outing... Continue Reading →
Late Friday beauty – is there anything better than cats with kids?
I had to capture this moment last night - Amber actually sat in someone elses lap while mine was available on the same sofa! And? They are BOTH smiling! Doesn't get better than that does it? After 10 days of winter break, the first work week of 2011 has been survived - barely! Each... Continue Reading →
