Three months ago, I signed up for a challenge. Specifically an in-person fitness challenge. My track record of challenges is dismal. I've signed up for NUMEROUS challenges online... have I ever completed them? No. Hell, I don't even think I read the daily emails. In addition to my challenge record... my fitness level is a … Continue reading #GetFitChallenge: Reflections
I knew weeks 2 and 3 would be hard... however, I did not think it would be THIS hard. Why? I came down with some form of cold/ flu/ viral hybrid-infection. It started with a sore throat and losing my voice last weekend. This symptom slowly, but surely, progressed to a fever midweek and I'm … Continue reading #GetFitChallenge – Recap of Week 2: Down & Out

A dear friend and colleague sent me this yesterday (when I was feeling so overwhelmed, emotional, drained and just over this shitty year). It is such a beautiful message I had to share it... And it is definitely something I need to take into 2016! Thank you, M...You really know how to make me look at things … Continue reading “tears are beautiful”
After my somewhat “enlightened” previous post I fell into a rough patch - and it made me go back and read those words. Again. And again. And again. And again.
