About a year ago, I started thinking again about getting an activity tracker. I had a Fitbit once upon a time, and while I liked it fine, I realized I didn’t at all enjoy the competitive nature of the Fitbit app. I’d really only bought the thing to give myself an idea of my real … More Gear Review: Misfit Ray
Who’s lauging? LOL OK, so, it wasn’t that long ago that I posted all about how I was going vegan, and I knew that was going to get strong reactions one way or another. Which, in real life at least, it absolutely did. And hey, no big deal! Because either way, I knew I was … More Why I Decided Vegan Wasn’t for Me
Confession: I may have lost a lot (LOT) of weight, but it is still so. hard. for me to make myself work out regularly, even though I love it after I get going. What’s my deal? Are you as bad as I am? But I was a good girl this week, and I’m so proud … More With me?
I love being a stay-at-home mom, but I don’t always handle the quiet well. The TV is generally tuned in to something innocuous—just to keep me company, really—though I often have no idea what’s happening in the shows I’m purportedly “watching.” I don’t mind the solitude. It’s the silence that gets to me. Once in … More For the Soul: Plan
Today we went on a little family bike ride. Actually, for us it was pretty long–almost 8 miles. My kids are getting so big so quickly, and they’re able to handle more. It’s fun. Our area has an awesome (mostly) paved trail system next to the Boise River called the Greenbelt. It’s almost entirely wooded, … More These are the best days.
At the top of Corrals Trail, overlooking the city. Go take a hike!
Today I took a little hike with my kids. It’s the last day of my 30s, and I wanted to spend it on an adventure with them. I’ve grown to love the outdoors, and it was so fun to hike through the water and explore somewhere new. I know some people feel anxiety or distress … More Goodbye, 30s
Officially too hot to run. Never again. 😓😵☠️ How do you weirdos do it at 3 pm in 103 degrees?? Good heck!
Since we’ve moved, we now live in a little town of 20,000 instead of a city of more than 100,000. I love it so much. We live right near downtown, and everything we need is within a couple of miles of us. When the weather is nice, I like to hop on my bike instead … More A Leisurely Morning
No pun intended, but seriously. It is MAY, and I hurt myself back in October. I’ve talked to two different doctors who both thought it was tendinitis and it would “go away in a couple of months.” Um. It has not. The other suggestion was bursitis, in the event that the probable tendinitis did not … More Getting older is a pain
