So Far September

Tweet I did not mean to go this long without a post. In fact, I was writing up a post about my trip to Rome on my “regular” blog and I haven’t even finished that one yet. It’s been a little bit busy since I got back. My intention is always to post at least…

August Recap

Tweet Here’s the verdict on August: 1) Food journal every single day. Whether online, on paper, on post-it notes, whatever. Every day journaling. Everything consumed. Didn’t fully happen.

Now for something less serious

Tweet and more “Can I get a ‘Woot! ‘Woot!’?” It’s six days into the new month, I’m feeling strong, positive, happy! Today I officially start my weekend. We’re going “away” (to Lisse) for the weekend for Castlefest – staying in a hotel and hanging out at the festival, spotting hobbits and witches and drinking Mead…

Early Days

Tweet I think it’s fairly normal when we make big plans or set goals for ourselves that we start off with a real BANG! Right? Being an all or nothing personality type, this is at least what I do, but I do want to change and be that person that succeeds more or less at…
