Thursday things

Thursday things

I’ve gotta get a move on my bucket list! We’re two weeks into September and I only checked off one item from my list.  That’s a shame!  Some things are going to be easy to check off (Looking at you Guac Day and Coffee Day!)… other things are going to have to be scheduled in and purposefully accomplished.   Reading time Going to have to get some reading time in on my book — Notice how I wrote “Girl” when…

Just for Fun Friday — September Bucket List!

Just for Fun Friday — September Bucket List!

Planner Lovers — Unite! While being bored and lazy one day, (read: “avoiding housework”), I was watching random youtube videos and stumbled across something called a “Plan with me”.  Basically, there is a whole population of folks that plan in their paper planners and share the experience with others!  What?!? After watching a few of these videos, from various youtubers, I was mesmerized! I recently started my own Bullet Journal, so it was so neat to see how creative and…

My Training Plan Update

My Training Plan Update

Are you training, or what? As school is starting, I can’t help but start to organize and plan all aspects of my life.  If it doesn’t get planned – it won’t get done! Part of that is meal planning and prepping, but a larger part is planning my training.  I’m still circling the idea of running a 5K race this winter, but haven’t found the “one” just yet.  I’m toying with the idea of either a Halloween, Thanksgiving, or Christmas…

Marathon Monday week 20!!

Marathon Monday week 20!!

Happy Monday!!!   I hope you had a great week of training last week! In reviewing last week and planning this week, I made the mistake of counting how many weeks are left in my training cycle  O_o…  Seven weeks!!  This week plus 6 more weeks!!  That’s not much at all!!  I feel motivated, energized, and TBH – terrified!   My registration went through for the actual Marathon I’m running, so it all just feels so real! Any other first timers…

Weigh In Wednesday

Weigh In Wednesday

Welcome to Weigh in Wednesday!!  This will mark my fourth week without a specific weight loss plan (no weight watchers, no 21 day fix, no counting calories…). I’m still trying to figure out how to fuel my body without obsessing – which is easier said than done.  In the past, I have always eaten compulsively; sometimes this means super quickly, tons, and almost in a panic – like someone was going to take away my plate any minute and other times…

Weigh In Wednesday #14

Weigh In Wednesday #14

Welcome to Weigh in Wednesday!! Results On my last weigh in day, my moving average was 188.2… meaning a GAIN!! 🙁 This morning, I weighed in at 189.8.  This would mean my body is settling in around 190 again…  The bain of my existence is the fact that my body settles at my “chubby” weight. My current Happy Scale Results are as follows:   ** 10 months?? 🙁  Determined to make it much sooner!!!!! Reactions It seems like I’m a…

Tuesday’s Treats!!

Tuesday’s Treats!!

This time of year is all about Back to School!  As an educator, it’s all about PLAN PLAN PLAN!!! Without adequate prep work, done in advance, the whole term/semester/year will feel like a giant game of catch up.  Too many things come at teachers all at once, so we have to use our summers to plan as far in advance as possible to free us up for this onslaught of stuff to do. I’m a big planner.  I love making…

Just for Fun Friday!

Just for Fun Friday!

This Friday (and this weekend) is all about soaking up the last bit of summer fun and laziness before work starts up again next week. Double Feature! Late last night, hubby and I crawled into bed having seen both Star Trek Beyond and the new Jason Bourne movie!  Both were excellent and WORTH THE WATCH, but the real treat was being able to see two movies back to back! Our little town has a small movie theater where ticket prices…

The Detectorists, Planning menus, workout boredom

Hi there!  Hello!  Greetings!   I’m currently in the process of riding out my first caffiene burst of the day and thought I’d take advantage of this surge of productivity to chat…type…blog?  Anyway, I have just a few random thoughts for your Friday!   The Detectorists This BBC show is a definite gem — if you have Netflix, I would recommend binging on the first season!  It’s only 6 episodes, but it might just make your summer. The show is about…
