The Mind Reels!

Wow has life been crazy!  I feel like I sound like a broken record, but it is really true!  At the beginning of September, my sister started a new job 50 miles away from where we were living in Costa Mesa, so she moved, but luckily she had her apartment here until the 10th.  So … Continue reading The Mind Reels!


The First Step

We all deal with stress in our lives in different ways, and often it takes us a long time to realize how we cope, and then to change those patterns to be healthier.  I have been under a fair amount of stress about finding somewhere to live because my sister is moving at the beginning … Continue reading The First Step

Technology Hates Me

My tech has not been good to me this week!  It's such a first world problem, but I think we get so used to relying on technology that it can be hard to function when it doesn't work correctly. First I got some emails from Apple, and apparently someone decided to hack my account and … Continue reading Technology Hates Me

Trying to Find Balance?

Wow has last week been crazy!  I feel like that is just my life now, but hopefully everything will start to settle down once I have an apartment, and I get into the groove of my jobs. Last week was particularly crazy though because the company that I teach fitness classes for had an event … Continue reading Trying to Find Balance?

Running In More Ways Than One

Wow!  Having two jobs is great, and I actually really enjoy both jobs, but it is hectic!!  On Saturday (yesterday) I worked in 3 different locations, for 2 different employers, in the span of 3-4 hours.  It was crazy. I started off my morning at 9 am teaching a bootcamp at an apartment complex in … Continue reading Running In More Ways Than One

Running Adventures!

I've been trying to stay consistent with running a few days a week since I moved to Orange County, and I have been pretty successful so far!  Sundays have been my "long run" days, which really just means that my sister and I try and find somewhere fun to run, and spend sometime on the … Continue reading Running Adventures!

The Time Flies When You Are Busy!

I'm running out of steam!  Life has been so busy since I have moved that I am so surprised that I got to Costa Mesa, 3 weeks ago today.  I feel like I haven't breathed since I got here, which is okay, since you have to hustle, but man am I in need of a … Continue reading The Time Flies When You Are Busy!

The Bright Side?

Life man.  It's going pretty well, but do you ever just get so tired that you want to ignore all your responsibilities and sleep for 4 days?  That's pretty much how I felt yesterday and today, just totally exhausted.  It probably had something to do with being outside on the 4th, the sun always takes … Continue reading The Bright Side?
