Sometimes I Do… Sometimes I Don’t

Even though I’ve been a consistent exerciser my entire adult life, I don’t always want to do it. In fact, if I’m honest, 85% of the time I have to have supports in place to make sure I get it done. My most effective… Continue Reading “Sometimes I Do… Sometimes I Don’t”

Cheating Is Encouraged: The Deer Fly Stomp

Just after I started working at Wanderlust, a gentleman named Paul Settles came in to ask for sponsorship for a race he manages every summer. I enjoyed talking with him about his little race that is in Grand Mere State Park. The distance is… Continue Reading “Cheating Is Encouraged: The Deer Fly Stomp”

I’m Jonesing on Life Right Now

The pandemic is over in my little world right now. I’m vaccinated. I’m back to work. Summer is here. Downtown St. Joseph is full of bikinis, bicycles and Illinois people. This afternoon I actually broke a sweat outside of a workout for the first… Continue Reading “I’m Jonesing on Life Right Now”

Hungry Evil Elf Saves My Ass

I’ve been going to physical therapy for three weeks. I decided to get an x-ray on my creaky right knee to make sure nothing was injured. My nurse practitioner said there was just some degenerative stuff that is normal in the aging process. She… Continue Reading “Hungry Evil Elf Saves My Ass”

Sunday Night Check-In: Running, Raspberries and Rain

We had storms Friday night. Compared to Louisiana storms, this one was mild, but I found myself laying in bed watching the lightning before I fell asleep. Summer storms feel so refreshing to me.

Listening to What I Need

There is magic in yoga and meditation. Our bodies speak. As we consume life’s traumas and joys, our body takes those in. And as we move creaky joints and lazy muscles, those lessons and memories gently (and sometimes not so gently) stir to the… Continue Reading “Listening to What I Need”

The Permission to Be

I ran today. I tentatively started running again a couple weeks ago. I’m not sure what started it, but I do remember driving home from work one evening when I felt it. That familiar urge to move faster than I could walk bubbled up… Continue Reading “The Permission to Be”

Just Call Me The Streak

When I was a little girl, one of our favorite outings was to go to Baskin-Robbins to get ice cream. Now mind you these were the days when the thought of a store offering 32 flavors was mind-boggling. Before Baskin-Robbins arrived in Baton Rouge,… Continue Reading “Just Call Me The Streak”

Ready to RUN!!

This week is the last week of my Fit Camp series. What should have been 12 weeks turned in to 13 when I took a week off in February to vacation in the Upper Peninsula. Reflecting back on why I invested my time, energy… Continue Reading “Ready to RUN!!”
