It always boggles my mind how the same thing can sometimes feel either SO hard or SO easy. I think this is because I'm really quite an all-or-nothing person. So when I'm "in" on something (mentally, I guess), it can seem quite easy. But when I'm "not in", it can feel impossible. This past week… Continue reading Week in review/ workouts going strong

Workout update + a couple gym things
I haven't really been talking much about workouts lately here, but I'm still working out. Still primarily doing strength training as my main form of exercise, aiming for 5 times per week ideally (though I don't always hit 5). I walk "most" days for ~20-60 minutes, as I can. Formal, higher intensity cardio has not… Continue reading Workout update + a couple gym things
A poll: audio habits while exercising
I've been wanting to ask this for a while, and truthfully, I also just wanted to try out this "poll" feature in WordPress. lol!! (Sorry if it doesn't actually work or something- first time.) Here is my burning question of the day: I've been mulling this topic over for a long time now. When I… Continue reading A poll: audio habits while exercising
Back in the gym (again, again, again- okay for REAL)

And if I've written the same thing repeatedly,… Continue reading Back in the gym (again, again, again- okay for REAL)

I finally went back to the gym! (I feel like I've had a few of these "I'm back!" posts....hopefully you won't see one again. 😆) Back around my birthday in October, I had kind of claimed this next year as the "year I return to the gym", after falling out of it bigtime during the… Continue reading Back in gym (again)
Back to exercise
When we got home from vacation this past Sunday, I intentionally told myself I wasn’t even going to think about exercise for at least a few days. I know how much effort it takes to get back in the swing of real life again, so I just completely removed that from my plate. (I think… Continue reading Back to exercise
Fake spring & workout completion!
I knew it would happen....it always does. We had the most gorgeous weather last week. We hit 60 degrees, the kids even wore SHORTS to school almost everyday (ridiculous- it was not that warm, but whatever. I am 100% over arguing with small people about what they will or will not wear, considering that it… Continue reading Fake spring & workout completion!
