The Next Few Days

The next few days are very important. As March is wrapping up, I am lagging behind on some goals. I have a little catching up to do so I’m pretty busy but my focus this week is on: distributing copies of my book. I   am selling autographed copies right now via eBay and my Etsy shop. Thanks for…

Big Weekend, Bigger Week

I saw this awesome quote and picture on Instagram.   “You do it because the doing of it is the thing. The doing is the thing. The talking and worrying and thinking is not the thing.” Setting goals and talking about them are one thing. But the act of working on them is quite another feat….

Past and Future

Last week, my goals were many and about half of them are still on my list this week because I didn’t accomplish them (deep sigh). You might remember I had planned to: Get to the gym 3 times  – I only went once. Details of my workouts below Complete week 1 of a 3 week…

Changing The Focus

Last week, I had such high hopes for myself. No regrets, but somehow the time just seemed to get away from me without doing what I said I had planned and now I need to change the focus to see what I need to do better. I knew I had to readjust from camping so…

Camp Fun

I spent the weekend camping. By itself, that’s not strange because I lead a group of kids and take them camping pretty frequently throughout the summer months – we’ve already done two weekend trips since April. But this camp is different. This is the camp where we train leaders and I look forward to it…

I might have been poisoned

I’ve been poisoned. There’s just no other explanation for how I’m feeling today. At 2:00 on Monday afternoon, I am finally, finally coming up from a long sleep-wake-hydrate-sleep-wake-eat-sleep-wake cycle. My blood feels like it’s sludge. My head feels like someone took a hammer to it. I’m hot and it’s not because it’s warm outside. I must…

Memorial Day Weekend Memories

Yesterday was Memorial Day here in the U.S. but it was also Labor Day in Jamaica. Since there was so much to celebrate, I used up all my energy and have to settle for making it a one sentence per picture weekend recap. In anticipation of the summer, I wore a very casual outfit for church…

Regrets I Have A Few

The weekend was short, what with the preparation for the Community Guest Day at church, the worship service, attending a motivational seminar about goal setting, swim class, another church service, spending a couple hours with the youth group kids, hanging out with friends to celebrate an accomplishment and catching a movie or two… Maybe I…

Celebrations and Struggles

Best parts of the weekend – Celebrations: 1. All the hats      2. All the clothes     3. Ladies Day celebration at church, with all the food.     4. All the friends    Toughest parts of the weekend – Struggles: Not being with my mom for Mother’s Day. I appreciate you, Mom! I…

Swim, Bike, Run

My first triathlon happened on Shnday and I didn’t even have to pay a race fee. On Sunday mornings, I have a one hour swim class and since we had missed the past two weeks, we spent the entire hour doing laps in the pool. I went to a meeting and then headed to spin…

Overnight Camping Lessons

This weekend I had my first camping trip of the season. To sum it all up in one word: COLD.  I’ve never gone winter camping, mainly because I don’t have winter camping gear. Trust me, you need to be prepared to spend 24 hours outdoors. But the trip we had planned coincided with some unseasonably…

The Weekend That Was

I started my weekend outside in Union Square Park and ended it outside in Central Park. Here’s a little of what happened in between.   I love mushrooms but I think I could only eat the ones I buy in the supermarket.  These make pretty pictures though 😀             My goals…
