January Recap & February Intentions

December (& January) Recap Take walks in the afternoon. Check! I also got in a lot of hiking in January! Spend time with people. I spent a lot of time nourishing my relationships with my BFFs and calling Liz. Be LOVE over the holidays. I think I think I did this. I didn’t have anxiety over doing very little for 2 weeks. Rest. My neck and shoulder pain went away! … Continue reading January Recap & February Intentions

January Recap

Tomorrow is Chinese New Year and according to my zodiac, it seems like a pretty solid year. As a teacher, 60 is a D though… Hiking Black Star Canyon A couple years ago, we attempted to get together for this hike. It started to sprinkle and everyone bailed so I went solo. It was tough then but less so now that I’ve done more hikes with water crossings and traversing rocks. We … Continue reading January Recap

October/November Recap & December Intentions

October Intentions Recap Eat more food. Trips make it easier as I follow eating habits of friends who don’t have food hang ups. Sleep more. Nope. Now, I’m working on sleeping in blocks – 5 hours at night, 2 hour nap. Relieve stress with walks and journaling. I dropped this, but I’ve been adding it back in. I went on a couple walks (2.5 and 8 miles) … Continue reading October/November Recap & December Intentions

August Recap & September Intentions

August Recap Practice self-care. I spent last Sunday getting sugared, getting a mani-pedi, having tea with the girls, and then buying a dress. It was the girliest day ever. Learn to let go of control and just deal with my feelings. I struggled partway through summer, which is nothing new. I get the seasonal blues, feeling purposeless. Once work started, I delved into work and the present. … Continue reading August Recap & September Intentions

July Recap & August Intentions

July Recap Practice letting go of my insecurities. I never realized how deep these insecurities ran. When I find confidence in one area (my body), I’ve transferred my insecurities into other parts (relationships). I saw myself looking for affirmation, to know I’m doing things right. Show affection. It keeps getting better and better and more natural. I started to trust people to want my affection. I … Continue reading July Recap & August Intentions

June Recap & July Intentions

Although summer officially started last Thursday, I’ve been off for a month and teaching “summer school” for the past month.  June flew by. I spent a weekend in Boulder, visited Yosemite National Park for the first time, hiked on weekends, and spent free afternoons at the pool or at happy hour. Spend time alone. I chose to spend the last week at home sleeping in and cleaning. … Continue reading June Recap & July Intentions
