In a Nutshell

Tweet So after Berlin I had a few days of “normal life” then I was off to Rwanda. What an amazing experience that was. I started writing about it and then I realised that: 1) I was really hard to put into words 2) The post was getting longer and longer and I wasn’t even…

Even the Blog has Jetlag

Tweet I did not mean to take so long to update! As you (may or may not) know, last week I returned from visiting my family in Albuquerque. It was a good visit but also a little bit heartbreaking. That sounds dramatic, but let me tell you why. My grandmother – she’s very old, she’s…

Oh Wow.

Tweet It’s like a freaking ghost town in here, man It’s already January 18th! How did this happen?? Well. I will tell you how. New Years Came and Went. I had to work. That’s right. I work in financial admin and end of the month is end of the month. Bookkeeping stops for no man!…

Letting Go

Tweet So that stuff at work that is going on? I’ve decided to let go of the stress that I’m allowing to take over my normal workday. There are still things that are going on and decisions waiting to be made but clearly *I* have no influence over those things. So it’s time to let…

Overdue

September: That’s a Wrap!

Tweet 79.2 KG That’s what the scale told me this morning. My first thought was to curse at it or throw it out the window but it only took a couple of seconds to come back to reality. You see, I did this, not the scale, and I wouldn’t throw myself out the window now…

A Look Back and a Look Forward

Tweet Wow you guys, September is already here and I hardly even caught my breath from returning from my US holiday! It was a bit of a struggle to get in a groove again, plus I was a bit sick, plus very busy/stressed at work, but we made it! We are entering my favourite month…

Phew! I made it!

Tweet It was a ROUGH week, at least from a work perspective. It’s busy, people are still on vacation, it’s end of the month, it’s almost end of the year… there’s just a LOT going on. I wanted more than anything to run twice and go to the gym once this week and I DID…
