New Beginnings

So I disappeared because I worked full-time in December. In retail. On my feet. It was crazy and I had to let some things go and blogging was one of those.

Now a new year has come and I have been introspective. That’s just me. We have had a “bit” of snow, unusually cold weather, and more time indoors, Thank heavens for Pilates and my dog, Tucker, who make sure I get exercise.

I have decided to change things up here a bit. Be more authentic, which means bringing my faith into things a bit more. I don’t think you can be “fit” physically without being fit spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and relationally…or pursuing that. So my posts will begin reflecting that.

In the meantime, I would love to hear what you are doing for your new beginnings of the new year. My big decision is just yo do things that scare me(I am a worrier so this definitely pushes me out of my comfort zone). How about you?

Digging Out


It’s real. Moving Day was two days ago and chaos still reigns. So I wanted to share a few tips for digging out of the boxes before leaving the moving posts behind.

  1. The bedroom is priority number one. Make sure you know where your sheets are and your bed is set up. Sleep trumps everything else.
  2. The bathroom comes next. This trip was pretty funny because our house had no shower rods! (We are renting before buying). So at 10 pm we were buying shower rods. Taking a shower felt amazing after a long day.
  3. The kitchen is important. Unless you want to spend a lot of money and eat tons of unhealthy fast food, rip open your kitchen boxes and get the pans out! Even if you end up moving things around later, eating well will help you power through busy days of unboxing, re-arranging, and settling in.

Coming later this week: Some of my favorite healthy “fast food” you can make when you are short on time.
