Hello and welcome!

Thanks for stoping by! That's me, and my super cute and spunky 1 year old, Nora. When we're not laying on the floor taking selfies, we also like to bake, take lots of pretty photos, and practice yoga. Aside from posting way too many pictures of Nora on instagram, I also take pretty wedding picures and make pretty baby items. So browse around, and keep up with all the latest.
More about me...

This post is difficult to write because I have to admit to a pretty big failure. It is also why its January 10th, and I’m finally posting my first post of the new year. I don’t know what happened between Halloween and Christmas, but I got into a funk and I just couldn’t get out. It started at Thanksgiving, when I just stopped my yoga and running workouts… and I tried to get back into it, but I just didn’t. And Christmas? pffffshhh, forget about it. I don’t think my yoga mat has seen the soles of my feet in 3 weeks.

Something got me way side tracked. Something got me in a funk, and I really want to come out of it because I felt so great when I was on my routine. Between Christmas and New Years I was off from my full time job; a glorious 1.5 weeks of paid time-off. One of the few perks of working at Yale. And it was surely glorious. So glorious, in fact, that I spent the majority of my time-off sitting on my couch watching TV or playing flight control on my iPhone. I could have done SO much that week, and I didn’t do a damn thing. Not even a load of laundry. I really couldn’t tell you why I was so lazy, but I just was. There wasn’t a thing I wanted to do more then just be lazy and do nothing.

But you know, sometimes, you just need to recoup. Sometimes, you have to allow yourself to do nothing. I guess I needed it. And you know what, when you fall off the horse, you just get right back on again, and keep going. Its easy to just give up on things, but that’s not what I want to do.

So, Workout Challenge, you may have won a few rounds there, keeping my butt firmly on the couch and causing me to come dangerously close to being labeled as a “couch potato”, but I’ll kick your ass even harder. Week 6, 7, and 8 were just abysmal. I wont even bore you with what little I did. Instead, I’m just going to do what I did with week 4… I’m going to redo them. So, this 10 week challenge is really turning into a 20 week challenge… well, that’s okay. I’m ready for the fight.

This week, January 9-15th, is my “new” week 6. I will pick up my recaps from here and finish this challenge come hell or high water, and no amount of Christmas cookies or cheese cake will stop me!!!

Wish me luck!!
