Getting back to my basics

As I type this post it’s raining outside and I am sipping my coffee. I just finished my home yoga practice. (I started working on┬áthis post yesterday morning.) I won’t type long and will finish this post later as I really want to get to reading my book. When I was a little girl I […]


Undoing with new chapter

Life is a balancing act … believe in yourself … Leap and the net will appear. Happy wife … happy life. Today is the first day of what I am referring to as FUNemployment. I quit my job of nine years and yesterday was my last day in the corporate world. (The top two lines […]


A hot mess

Do you ever feel like your life is a hot mess? Disorganized? Out of routine? Lately that’s how I feel. At home, at work, all aspects of my life. I strive on routine. And my life has been anything but. I am trying to embrace the disorganized, the fly by the day goings on, the […]


Back to my routine

From my posts last week you know that I was on vacation. I had a great, amazing and relaxing time with The Husband in the Caribbean. The water on Turks and Caicos was absolutely a beautiful, gorgeous turquoise. I lounged a lot, slept in a lot, got some sun. I also ingested a lot of […]


Back to healthy, clean living

Oh man. I feel like I have been writing these posts too often lately. I have been allowing myself to get out of my routine way too much recently. Yup, I usually have a good reason or “excuse.” And we all fall off the wagon and experience life. And sometimes I give myself permission to […]

There were lots of great ideas for future Monthly Challenges. And I promise to use them in the upcoming months. But I did have some ideas already […]


Lazy days are just what I needed

I had lots of plans for this long weekend. I actually took Friday off to give myself a four-day weekend. I got many things checked off my to do list, but not as many items got checked off as I would have liked. Maybe my list was unrealistic. Or maybe I just did what I […]


Full workout at home

My routine was completely out of whack this week. I got sick on Sunday and even though I felt better on Monday I decided to skip the gym and make sure I was back to healthy. (Plus I had a fever on Sunday, which broke Sunday night or Monday morning, and didn’t want to infect […]


Longing for regular, healthy routine

So the Go Fit Girl! October Monthly Challenge has been really tough for me. (Click here to take you to the Facebook event.) I am having a hard time for a variety of reasons: birthday; Oakland A’s playoff games; many dinners eating out; travel; Charlotte; work conference where vendors and law firms wine and dine. […]


Embarking on a hectic December

Today was a hectic day, between work and taking the furbaby to the vet, talking to the vet, running to the store for Joey supplies, etc. And I didn’t want to go to yoga. But I knew I would feel better after I did. And I have to say I am glad I went. Though […]
