Fitness Friday #9

ffquote9That’s the problem. I broke the habit and ever since breaking the habit of running and yoga, it’s been really hard to get it back. But I’m happy to say I woke up yesterday morning and went out for a nice 3 mile run. It wasn’t easy and by no means was it my usual pace, but I ran and that was exactly what needed to happen.


I’ve been trying to do a lot of soul searching lately. It’s not uncommon to be asked what I plan to do at the end of this year. And quite frankly, it’s a great question but it’s just not one that I’m in a place to answer. At least not yet. This is a year full of growth and challenges and changes and searching and questioning. It’s a year that I’ve devoted to giving back to others while also really discovering what I’m looking for out of my life. Trying to figure out how I can combine all of my passions into one career. I’m not sure yet if it’s possible, but I’m figuring that out.

Fitness Friday #8 + Linkup Your Week of Workouts!

Well, I survived Mardi Gras in New Orleans!


I’m not entirely sure how and while it was exhausting at times, it was also really fun and now I can say I’ve done Mardi Gras in Nola. Bucket list item (that I didn’t know was on it), has been crossed off! ;)


A week in New Orleans also made for a decent amount of walking, which was nice. That’s always been one of my favorite things about living in or visiting different cities, using my legs to see the city. Yeah it’s nice to drive and all from time to time, but I just love to explore cities on my feet and find little shops to pop into and start chatting with people you may not otherwise run into.

One of the really cool things about Mardi Gras in New Orleans is that people come from all over to celebrate and everyone is always asking about where you’re from, what you do, etc. It was a great opportunity to tell people about the 50 States In A Year project and we definitely made some new friends doing so!
