One way to get the most out of life is to look upon it as an adventure. -William Feather
If I had to choose one word to describe myself, it would be adventurous. No surprise there. Not just because I have a lot of travel plans, either.
For those of you who are newer around here (hi!)- when I decided to start the monumental task of improving my life, from the very beginning I decided I would make it my own adventure. I was going to make these drastic lifestyle changes, but it was going to be fun!
I credit that attitude with the speed at which I’ve been able to transform myself from the inside out, but I thought it would be fun to bring some more literal types of adventure to the blog.
So I’m trying out an experiment: Everyday Adventures. Hopefully two Fridays a month I’ll be posting photos from an actual adventure I had out in the world. Let’s see what happens!

There’s just something about Mondays, right? I like to think they can set the tone for the rest of the week, so I’m introducing a new category for the blog- Monday Motivation!

Today I’m going to add extra time to my self-care activities: 5 minutes to meditation, 10 minutes to yoga, and 30 minutes to reading.
What can you do to make today the best?
A funny thing happened when I started tracking my runs with Strava: I started pushing myself harder. Funny how that works, isn’t it? I finally saw the full consequence of that little bit of extra push on my run this morning. This run. It’s another interval practice on my 10K trainer: run 15 minutes, […]
Once again, I was supposed to spend last week out in a cabin someplace; hiking, meditating, and generally decompressing. This time, my consolation trip was a weekend in Milwaukee. I’d never actually been in the city itself before, just gone around it on my way to more exotic locales. Like Madison or Minneapolis. Within 30 […]
Is anyone else out there totally thrown by the fact that it is basically July, or is it just me?
Anyway, I made the time to walk over to the beach three days in a row last week when the weather was hot. It was awesome! I hope that you’re all managing to take advantage of those days too (well, those of us in Chicagoland, I understand that other places have more reliable summers).
I got a cool notice from my magic gizmo yesterday: I have walked 736 miles since I got it at the end of March. All those hikes to and from work are paying off!
