Planning... I both love and hate it. In the moment, I feel like I could be doing something more productive. But when it's time for me to have a meal and I know exactly what I'm going to do... that's when I appreciate meal planning.

I have re-discovered the joy of turkey bacon. Hubs got a lot of it over the weekend, so I had some for breakfast and some more for a snack when I got home. SO GOOD.
Got in a run this morning, a little over 4.5 miles. I am so excited that it... Read more
My calendar is filling up and I'm not so sure that's a good thing.
Between classes, book clubs, concerts, work commitments, and race training, I'm not so sure I'm really enjoying all of it. When I write this stuff on the calendar I think I ... Read more
March successes (so far):
- I bought a new water glass for work, and I am drinking a TON of water throughout the day. This means I have to pee a lot, but I know it's helping me manage my eating.
- Every week I've been getting more mindful ab... Read more
Any time I get up to run, I have to give myself a little pat on the back. It's not easy to get up early on a chilly March day, when it's so toasty under the covers. But I have a race coming up in May, and I have to get in my miles. And I skipped... Read more
It was another great run this morning. I got in a good four miles before I had to go to work.
- drank a lot of water
- didn't eat too much pizza at my lunch meeting
- ate a yogurt for a snack.

Every day I drink a little more water at work. Today I'll drink even more!
I've been having trouble waking up early for my runs - I had been hitting snooze, re-setting my alarm for an hour later... so I got myself a new alarm app (White Noi... Read more
It's amazing what I can get done when I just DO stuff instead of think about it incessantly. This morning, I thought "I should paint my nails when I get home." And I have plenty of time before I have to go to work - I wake up early with plenty o... Read more
Back to the basics.
- 2 big bottles of water at work
- no eating snacks from the basement at work (we give out snacks to families and that's where we store them)
- get to bed by 9:30 so I can wake up at 5:30 so I can run before work.

I'm really good at making to-do lists, and I'm getting better at *doing* the stuff on the lists. I *do* need to work on, however, time management skills. I'm a good procrastinator and get my stuff done, but not without stress. Just one of these ... Read more
Not a whole lot to say today... just here for consistency's sake.
- drink lots of water at work
- tackle some tasks that I've been putting off (for no good reason)
- schoolwork and cleaning tonight after work
Happy Monday!... Read more
I'm kinda proud of myself this morning. I've had it on my to-do list for at least two weeks to paint my nails (side note: when I was teaching, my nails got chipped often, so I've not painted them in a while). But since I am not teaching anymore,... Read more
I love making lists. I love making lists so much, in fact, that the actual tasks *on* the list are secondary to the actual list. For example - I wanted to put an alarm on my phone reminding myself to get ready for bed at a decent hour. Naturally... Read more
I feel like I write this every month, but I really do love turning the calendar page. I love the symbolism and the fresh start.
This month I'm choosing to focus on three wellness areas -

Yesterday I learned that there always seems to be food around at my job. And not just little bites, but trays of sweets, pretzels, cookies, all kinds of stuff. I need an extra dose of motivation so I don't eat everything in sight!
