Learning to appreciate the journey as well as the destination...
Hi! I'm Jaime... a derby girl who happens to be ready for a change and a new challenge! I'm a parent of a 4th grader and married to a sailor in the US Navy, obsessed with skating, reading, photography, music and more!
Here on SP I hope to find my way to a healthier, happier me!
Best wishes and much love to you and yours!
My Goals are always changing... but for now I want to learn to incorporate healthy lifestyle choices into my daily routine: Drinking more water, making exercise a habit, journaling my daily adventures. We recently moved to Japan, so I want to take advantage of every minute of every day!
Sometimes one day at a time seems too overwhelming, so I'm taking it one step, or one moment at a time. Making conscientious choices about eating, drinking, movement and other daily activities is my starting point.
Currently I'm tracking nutrition and exercise daily to make sure I'm staying on track!
Born and raised in the US Midwest, I've somehow made my way Westward and wound up in Japan! I'm 28, married to a sailor, mother of a 5 year old and I'm addicted to sensation. I love tastes, smells, familiar & new sights, texture and sounds - there's music everywhere!
I'm an avid reader - I always have a book or three I'm reading through! I love to play clarinet and I'm struggling to learn guitar. I enjoy finishing up a slow paced run (getting through it is another story..) and get a huge amount of satisfaction when crossing a finish line, even if I'm far, far from first place!
All human actions have one or more of these seven causes: chance, nature, compulsion, habit, reason, passion, and desire. Or so Aristotle says...
I think the philosopher would've been someone I loved to debate and banter with. Do you agree with him?
