Making Time to Exercise

512a997684bbef7e6de84b583a6082dd

If only… One of the things I was most looking forward to when I decided to become a stay-at-home mom was having time to exercise more regularly. Since I changed my schedule to work in the office in the mornings and from home in the afternoons, I was losing my hour during the day that […]

Officially in Training Mode

Last weekend marked eight weeks until the Children’s TLC Groundhog Run. This is the race my husband and I ran together last year and decided we would do annually as part of our anniversary celebration. He and I have been so fortunate to have a beautiful life together that we wanted to find a way […]

Just Blame the Treadmill

In my post about starting Operation: ME, I said I was going to run this past Saturday.  It didn’t happen.  It didn’t happen Sunday either.  It was a sleepy weekend.  Because I’ve been such a grump lately, the hubs and I had a nice heart to heart on Sunday where I came clean about all […]

“No problem can withstand the assault of sustained thinking.” -Voltaire This quote was emailed to me today. It was a random newsletter, yet the quote was pertinent.

When I was nine years old, my family went to Six Flags in St. Louis. It was there that I conquered my fear of rollercoasters and fell in love with thrill rides. My dad kept trying convince me to ride on the Screamin’ Eagle the entire day, but I refused. It seemed way too scary. […]

Monday Motivation: Are you the master of your fate?

Last week, I shared a short poem from The Grey that I found motivating. One of my readers responded with another thought-provoking poem. I liked it so much that I thought I’d share it with all of you. INVICTUS by William Ernest Henley Out of the night that covers me, Black as the pit from […]

Before you can move forward, you gotta remember where you’ve been

Beautiful motivation to stay awake

With two days to go until the Virtual Run/Walk for Narcolepsy, it occurred to me that I’ve neglected to share MY story…. I’ve been a sleepy person as long as I can remember. My parents were divorced and lived three hours apart, meaning we had to make weekend trips once a month to go visit […]

Two Days Until the Virtual Run/Walk for Narcolepsy Research!

Virtual Run/Walk for Narcolepsy Research July 14th Inspired by Makenna’s story, which you can read about here, I thought it was time that I did something besides donate a little money to the cause.  I want this cause to be bigger.  I want people caring as much about the daily struggles that we go through as […]
