I'm currently reading 3 books. Which is probably not that smart of me, because I seem to have a hard enough time getting through 1 book in a reasonable amount of time. (Because, as outlined in this other post, I guess I just prioritize other things.) But I do actually love to read. And I… Continue reading Books + reading speed
Pondering: G.R. and extreme diet changes
It's been an enjoyable weekend so far. Yesterday I NEEDED some open time to catch up on some things- I had been persistently sort of ignoring my personal email inbox honestly since we got home from Costa Rica. I mean, I had dealt with the must-dos, but it had just really accumulated and needed attention.… Continue reading Pondering: G.R. and extreme diet changes
Time tracking, continued!
I want to clarify a couple more things about my time tracking experiment! First, why I'm doing this: I am not tracking my time so that I can deeply analyze it, or be able to say with certainty that I spent exactly 3.21 hours with my children yesterday. Maybe some people may want to do… Continue reading Time tracking, continued!
Time tracking experiment
Good morning! It's a 5:30 a.m. swim practice day. These are currently "necessary" in Asher's schedule, because he is so busy with volleyball + soccer right now that he can't get to as many of the evening practices. Even with the early Wednesdays in the mix, he's only making it to swim about 3x/ week… Continue reading Time tracking experiment
Type A- and spring scenes
As many of you might also, I feel like I hear reference to "Type A" personalities a lot. It seems to come up frequently in casual conversation. Example: Dealing with volunteer committee issues, and someone will comment that so- and so (who dropped the ball on something or is generally disorganized) apparently isn't very "Type… Continue reading Type A- and spring scenes
New habits + blogging + feeling self-conscious
The cool thing about having a blog is that you have a fun place to decompress and share details about your life with other people. The bad thing about having a blog is that.... other people know a lot about your life! Which, is NOT actually a "bad thing" in my opinion- obviously I choose… Continue reading New habits + blogging + feeling self-conscious
It's February! Cue everyone saying, "Oh my goodness, can you believe it's February already???" 😄 But it is crazy to me to realize that 2023 is 1/12th over already. I'm feeling pretty solid about how 2023 is going in terms of goals/ resolutions/ what have you so far. Habit Tracker: Read: 26/31 days Walk: 19/31… Continue reading 1 down!
All or nothing
On Sunday I wrapped up my 2nd week of this "January Shred". For the second week in a row, I was 100% on my workouts (5 strength, 3 cardio sessions). I've been thinking about this, because I know for a fact that these are the first weeks in a VERY LONG TIME that I have… Continue reading All or nothing
Couple more misc. macros thoughts
I wanted to jot down a couple more thoughts about the macro tracking stuff! 1) Eating the same foods frequently makes macro tracking much easier. (I think I said this already recently.) 2) The hardest part isn't actually getting in all that protein, it's getting in all that protein without going over on carbs or… Continue reading Couple more misc. macros thoughts
Update on my adding/subtracting habit plan + some fitness “advice”
November is almost over, which means my goal of adding a specific habit for the month of November is almost over, too. If you recall, I talked about this idea in this post. I have really enjoyed focusing on just ONE THING for a month. I chose to start with "adding" a good habit (versus… Continue reading Update on my adding/subtracting habit plan + some fitness “advice”
