Life in the Time of COVID-19 | Week 26

Hey y’all hey! I hope everyone has been having a lovely few last weeks of Summer. I know my spirits have been high as Fall is my favorite season. I’ve been able to wear sweaters and I’ve been using pumpkin spice almond creamer in my coffee. Everything feels right...

Life in the Time of COVID-19 | Week 24

I ended week 24 in a rather physically uncomfortable place. I decided to start the Chloe Ting 2 week shred challenge midway through the week and I can say with 100% confidence that my body was not ready. It’s going to probably end up being more like a 3...

Lessons Learned From Gardening This Year

I am by no means of the imagination a master gardener. For me it’s a fun hobby to supplement our groceries during Spring and Summer (maybe a little bit of Fall). As much as I watch the YouTube videos and read the blog posts to prepare each year, once...

Life in the Time of COVID-19 | Week 23

This was completely unintentional but I took another weeklong break from my COVID update posts. It’s not my intention to turn this into a bi-weekly series, but it seems that it may shake out that way from time to time. Getting into what life has unfolded over the past...

Life in the Time of COVID-19 | Week 21

Hello world! I took a break from blogging last week. I just couldn’t bring myself to write for some reason so I took it as a sign that I needed a brain break. Our garden has finally exploded. I’m harvesting several cucumber a week and I finally was able...

Life in the Time of COVID-19 | Week 19

Week 19 is the calm before the storm for our garden. We’ve been slowly harvesting more and more, but I have a feeling the ripe tomatoes are about to go wild. This week I got a few new fitness items in the mail. If you’ve read my blog post...

My Current Fitness Routine & Recent Weight Loss

I want to give forewarning on this post that I am discussing the topics of weight loss, diet, and exercise and that if those topics trigger you in any way you should skip reading this post. When quarantine began back in March, I chose to have a positive outlook...

Life in the Time of COVID-19 | Week 18

This past week was really rough. I had my period and when I’m on my period my joints get super loose. Is that normal? I have no idea, but it happens to me and it hits me hardest in my jaw. I can’t keep my jaw in any kind...

Life in the Time of COVID-19 | Week 17

Yall! I am going to have home grown veggies soon. Look at those mators in all their glory. I’m really excited for when they day comes that I can harvest something. I know its going to be soon! To be completely honest, the work week is slipping into mundane...

My Quiet Time

Sunsets have become me time recently. I know it may sound strange that I need designated “me time” while I’m isolated at home all day, everyday with my husband, but I’ve found that carving out this time specifically to do something relaxing for myself has been the energizing activity...

Life in the Time of COVID-19 | Week 16

Can you even believe we are in the month of July? I’m still a bit shocked that this year is already half way passed and that we’ve spent the majority of it within the confines of our home. Honestly, I haven’t hated it. There are a few things I’m...

Reflections

Today is the 1 year anniversary of the day we had to say goodbye to Kitty. Its so weird how the best days always feel like a complete blur and the worst days stand out in complete technicolor detail. Austin was running late returning from a work site-visit in...
