FIVE TAKEAWAYS FROM BLOGFEST

Okay, so I seriously learned so much while I was at BlogFest that it actually took some time after I got home to go through it all and decide what information actually applied to me and what I wanted to implement. Plus, I had a major case of airplane flu going on and was trying to get over that/jet lag/time difference/bladder infection/ALL THE FUN so I needed a li’l extra time to get my thoughts together. Obvi. I’ve been to a fitness blogging conference a couple times before (sorry, I can&#8217…

THINGS THAT MADE ME HAPPY THIS WEEK (aka Friday Favorites #7)

Hey there!  This week, I’m trying to focus on the things that make me happy.  And Friday seems like a good day to do that. 🙂  I’ve had an up and down week emotionally.  I’m not really as weepy as I was, which is definitely good, but I’m tired.  Drained would be a better word.  And I’m not sleeping well at all.  I’ve been pretty much waking up every 90 minutes to 2 hours or so and that just makes for a long damn night. So, again, HAPPY things…

FRIDAY FAVORITES #6

Happy Friday, everyone! Look at me with 3 posts this week! What what??? Man, it’s been a hot minute since I’ve shared some of my favorites from the week. This whole work, school, and knee surgery trifecta has really been kicking my butt! AND, my physical therapy regimen will take a new turn next week once I hit weight-bearing status. WOOO! Luckily, life is finally starting to settle down and I’m able to create more of a routine and get into the swing of things. Like sharing my favorites from this week! 1…

Friday Favorites #5

Omigosh, I am such a nerd. I am so in love with the alliteration of this post’s title. Especially when you consider that I’m about to share five things with you. Five Friday Favorites #5. *swoon* Okay, sorry. Sometimes I just can’t help myself. #grammarnerd Where was I? Oh yeah, some of my favorites from this week! I think it goes without saying that my most favorite thing from this week is that I feel WAAAAAYYYYY better than I did last week. Thank goodness! I’ve even managed a few workouts and got…

FRIDAY FAVORITES #4

Ho, ho, ho!! Christmas is on Sunday, my friends!! Can you believe it? It feels like it and yet, it doesn’t. Okay, so, I have some news on the going back to school front. Turns out that’s not going to happen in January as I had planned. :/ Not all of my transcripts are in and I cannot register. Nope, didn’t delay in getting the request in – sent that one off via email on October 17. They said to give 4-6 weeks for processing. PLEEENNNTTTYYY of time. AND, to top it off, I…

FRIDAY FAVORITES #3

Happy Friday! 🙂 Wow. This week seems to have flown by! Maybe that’s because I made a really big decision and had a great weight lifted off my shoulders? Or maybe it’s because Christmas is in 9 days and I’m not done with my shopping yet? Uuhh…let’s not discuss that…moving on….nothing to see here….. Anyhoo…it’s Friday! And it’s time for me to share some favorite things from this week! Today, I want to share my 5 favorite things about my…

FRIDAY FAVORITES #2 – FALL RECIPE ROUND-UP

source Friday’s are the best. 🙂 So, I finally had an MRI on my knee. 3 months after I went to the doctor. And did physical therapy. And was trying to get back into running. Meniscal tear. Great. :/ I see the orthopedist on Wednesday and I’ll find out how bad, where the tear is, and what my options are. Fingers crossed for a tear in the FRONT because those generally heal on their own. But, I hurt in the BACK of my knee so I’m not super positive. I just wonder how much additional damage…

FRIDAY FAVORITES #1

Hi there! Happy Friday, my friends! 🙂 How has your week been? Mine’s been pretty interesting. Did my first lap swim in almost THREE DECADES!! And, I didn’t drown. #bonus  Which also means I’m still around to share some of my favorites from this past week. #bonusforyou 🙂 Snack Attack Two words –  kale chips. I’m pretty much always late to the party when it comes to delicious snacks but I’m glad I finally decided to knock on the kale chips’ door. YUM! So far…
