Plugging Away
Sunday, March 05, 2017      6 comments

Just for today… I promised myself I'd work out. Before I could get out of it, I did 75 jumping jacks and one set of pushups, shoulder presses, weighted squats, and deadlifts. It wasn't much, but it was far more than I've done lately. My goal ... Read more

Sunday, October 30, 2016      6 comments

Do you journal daily? I usually do, but I let October get away from me. I didn't have a plan in place when I travelled. I have a hard cover journal and didn't want to bring the extra weight with me. Big mistake. It's coming with me next time... Read more
