2012 review and going out with a bang!

2012 review and going out with a bang!

I wasn’t sure if I was going to get around to reviewing my 2012 goals but I decided it was time.  I need to do it for me more than anything else.  Some of them I met, some I didn’t.  And that’s ok because 2013 is a fresh new start! Goal # 1- Read the Bible. I really wish I could say YES to this one (like I did in 2011) but I can’t. Sadly, I made it until mid…

2012 Goals- Where Are We?

2012 Goals- Where Are We?

I do not usually ever recap each month.  It’s not that I don’t want to because I think that would actually be pretty helpful.  I just don’t have time or the organizational motivation right now.  Maybe it’s the never ending pile of laundry or dishes but I just can’t seem to find the time to write monthly mileage updates.  I do keep track of everything on my personal running calendar and on Daily Mile. Every July I like to re-visit…

A Few Thoughts on Weaning, Running, Racing and Resting

A Few Thoughts on Weaning, Running, Racing and Resting

Warning: The first paragraph contains some emotional and hormonal ranting on babies and nursing.  Feel free to skip to the next paragraph! I haven’t posted in a few days because I’ve been back in my why-can’t-my-running-be-back-to-normal funk.  I am also about 2 weeks behind in my daily Bible reading (which is the most I’ve ever been since I started doing this) so I guess I feel a little guilty about spending any time blogging.  Up until recently, I usually read…

2012 Goals… Here we go!

It is officially 1 week into 2012 and for the moment… I AM CAUGHT UP ON ALL THE LAUNDRY!!! Yes, finally! We went on a week vacation and the laundry got a bit out of control.  So I thought I would like to take the free five minutes or so I have and post some of my goals for this year.  2012 Goals Spiritually- Read the Bible. This was a huge blessing to my life in 2011 and I am…

I Did It!!!

I Did It!!!

Let me preface this with a disclaimer… The following post is NOT meant to sound boastful or arrogant in ANY way. ALL credit goes to God because it is through Him that makes all things possible. I’m so glad He does!! A little over a year ago I set out on a mission. I was tired of just talking about reading the Bible and decided to actually read the ENTIRE Bible. This was not my first time to attempt this…

November’s 30 *Things*

November’s 30 *Things*

If you are on Facebook at all, you have most likely noticed that many people are using their statuses to put something they are thankful for each day in November.  I do not get on Facebook as much as I used to but I would like to take one post to share 30 things I am thankful for… 1. My Salvation. Without my belief in God or my relationship to Christ everything else in my life would be meaningless.  Everything…

2 Updates: The CORE Challenge and The Bible

2 Updates: The CORE Challenge and The Bible

As you recall, I challenged myself at the beginning of the month to work on my core a little each day.  I call it the October Core Challenge.  Basically, I challenged myself to spend 10-15 minutes at least each day doing at least 100 ab exercises (crunches, leg lifts, bicycles, sit-ups, etc.) and 75 or more push-ups.  I started with only girl push-ups but after two weeks I am adding some boy push-ups in the mix. I tend to get…

What I DID do today…

What I DID do today…

What a day! First of all, let me just say what I did NOT do today… Laundry, errands or any housework.  I had all 4 kids home and I decided early on it was going to be a fun day. A Few Highlights from today- Labor Day 2011… 1. Woke up early and ran 7 easy recovery miles with a friend. (9:03 avg. so the pace was perfect after Saturday’s 5K race) 2. Spent almost 2 hours at the park…

The Halfway Point

The Halfway Point

Today is a very special day. It’s July 1st and on this day I became a mother… My baby is 7?!! While I am on the subject of reflecting, I might as well consider that we are exactly halfway through the year. It has been quite an eventful 6 months. I have experienced great joy, as well as some pain. It’s hard to believe that 6 months ago, I looked like this… I can definitely say that the highlight of…

New Year’s Resolutions- here we go!

New Year’s Resolutions- here we go!

I cannot remember the last time I actually sat down and made New Year’s Resolutions. I know I did it when I was young and living at home with my parents. I have actually given this year’s goals a lot of thought. 2011 has a lot of things in store and I guess I think that if I have specific goals it will help me succeed in meeting these goals. Here we go…. Spiritually– Read through the entire Bible.I have…
