Hardest workout yet, and thoughts on food deprivation
Yesterday was Total Body Circuit day, 25 minutes of pure torture. Even Tania's modifications were very challenging, but I was proud of myself for not giving up, and being able to practice better planks and getting trained for full push-ups. I still have a l...

Me Time: A Change In Perspective

Appreciating What I Have: 10 Things I'm Grateful For At Work
Today is Monday, and it was actually a pretty decent Monday for a change! I didn't have such a hard time waking up early today, despite feeling ill this weekend. It looks like I'm coming down with an ear and/or sinus infection, but overall, I still feel pre...

Ever since work started up again a month ago (new school, new perspective), my mind has been overflowing with so many different things that it keeps me awake at night. The melatonin supplement helps sometimes, but most nights, I just can't give myself a ful...

The first day of school is just around the corner...
