January Fitness Challenge: Listening to My Body

I cannot believe it’s February already!  It seems like just yesterday that we celebrated Christmas and started a new year!  And here I am, about two months away from my most challenging body moment ever, and I’m so excited! I knew going into January that, as far as fitness challenges went, I was unlikely to […]

Gratitude Gems: Baby-Inspired Generosity

Welcome to Gratitude Gems, where I show a little appreciation for the good things in my life! I already knew that we have some amazing family and friends who are very generous with their time and money, but no event in our lives has highlighted that fact for us quite so clearly as our pregnancy.  […]

Concerning Underwear…

Concerning Underwear…

I made myself a goal to update my underwear situation in my 32nd year.  I desperately needed new underthings, and it seemed like a fun and easy goal for myself to go buy some new things and celebrate looking and feeling good. Then a few things happened over the course of my year: I got a […]

Gratitude Gems: Baby Wiggles

Welcome to Gratitude Gems, where I show a little appreciation for the good things in my life! My pregnancy has been so full of excitement!  I recognize how lucky I am to have avoided all complications and/or problematic occurrences during my first two trimesters, and I’m incredibly grateful.  As a result, I’ve had the freedom […]

December Fitness Challenge: Walking and Baking and Walking Some More

I’ve been struggling lately.  This pregnancy has me feeling tired pretty much all the time, which isn’t news.  But it does mean that when I’m moving, […]

Vacationing with My Mom

I had a hoot in Las Vegas with my Mom last week!  I couldn’t drink obviously, and because the Americans apparently don’t drink dark rum (go ahead, say that ten times fast), we couldn’t find any outside of the few bars we went into, so my Mom didn’t do much of that either; but that […]

September Fitness Challenge: Just Keep Biking…

In terms of fitness, September, and to a lesser extent August, has mainly been about doing my best not to sit on my butt all day every day.  As I mentioned last post, I’m pregnant (!) and while we’re very excited about that, it’s taken a toll on my body.  My best efforts to get […]

My Most Exciting Goal

Some readers of this little ol’ blog may have noticed that this year I set myself a secret goal.  No, this wasn’t just because I couldn’t figure out a 32nd goal for myself this year and decided to cop out and try to make it more exciting than it really was.  It also wasn’t because […]
