Procrasti-nasty

Procrasti-nasty

At the eve of my next family vacay, I find myself cursing my past lazy self for not getting on top of the ToDo list!! In order to counter act my procrastination, I'll be running around like a chicken with its head cut off for the duration of the day and part of tomorrow. This has happened before and I think there are pros and cons to be a little procrasti-nasty. Pro- I'm super efficient when up against a time…

Jet lag is real…

Jet lag is real…

My body seriously cannot handle flights and lack of sleep or a changes in schedule.  This week, my average night’s sleep was about 4 hours.  Some nights, I got 6 or 7 hours of sleep and other nights I got 2 or less.   Needless to say the gym last night and this morning FELT AWFUL!  I didn’t feel like I was going to die or anything, I just felt WEAK and I HATE FEELING WEAK!   Does anyone else…

So Embarrassed — I want to die

So Embarrassed — I want to die

The other day, some of our friends were getting together to have a big fun day!  Lunch, rock climbing, bowling, movies, dinner, ice cream, donuts,… everything fun!   While rock climbing, one friend fell and really hurt her leg.  We scrapped our plans so that she could be taken to urgent care.  Turns out, our girl broke both bones in her leg!! HOW AWFUL!  She was totally tough though — and only ended up getting upset when she realized she…

Travel WOD’s?

Travel WOD’s?

In my last post, I alluded to the fact that this week I’m eating Wild and Free!  I also mentioned how this means I’ll need to stay active and sneak in some workouts to balance things out.  The easiest workout for me to do while traveling is running — so there will be lots of that — but to keep things interesting, I’ve done some research as prep work. Here are a few workouts I found that require zero equipment…

Macros while on Vacay?

Macros while on Vacay?

Vacations tend to go one of two ways with me.  I’m either hypervigilant with my eating — having a plan, taking time to track calories, and making sure to have healthy alternatives on hand wherever I am.  OR I’m wild and free.  In the latter case, I eat what I want to eat, when I want to eat, until I feel like I’ve had enough.  Some would call these types of days “cheat days” — but I call them “refuel”…

Fear of Flying!

Fear of Flying!

As a half korean, I’m very good at worrying.  It’s a time honored tradition that was passed down to me from my Korean Mom.  She’s the champ of worrying and her strategies include (1) waves of worry, increasing over time, (2) imagining scenarios where all new levels of worrying can by applied, and (3) being full on crazy faced — with irrational and completely unrealistic worries. In honor of my flight today, and my worry-crazy Korean Mom,  I have compiled…

Hubby Love <3 <3

Hubby Love <3 <3

Like many of you, I’m obsessed with my hubby.  He’s my absolute favorite human alive!!  We’ve been together for over a decade and married for 6 years now.  We are in no rush to start a family, so instead we end up spending tons of quality time together — doing things and doing nothing.   This week, I’ll be traveling to stay with family for a week — completely solo.  Hubby has to stay home and work work work!  🙁…

Packing Grid?

Packing Grid?

Like many of you, summers are full of fun road trips, day trips to the beach, and even a few longer trips to visit far away family and friends.  My summer is no different — as I will be taking as much time as I can to visit and help some family and friends.   A down side to this super fun traveling, is packing!  I never know what to pack, especially for a week or longer — as is…

Thursday Things: Notebook Love <3

Thursday Things: Notebook Love <3

As a teacher, office supplies are near and dear to my heart.  I fiercely protect my pens and pencils.  I ration paper like we’ve chopped down the last tree in existence.  I horde markers of all types and bury them deep in my drawers.  I collect every type and size of paper clips, three ring binders, and staples. I know what you’re thinking — I sound psycho!  But over a decade in the classroom has taught me that if you…
