Taking a Leap

February has been a trying month for me!  The loss of our cat, Emmy, took the BOY and I by surprise and we were pretty upset for awhile.  Following that, I worked the longest week in my life (12 straight days), took a week off of working out because my body needed it, and spent most of the month in a bit of a haze.  All the while, the snow has been falling.


On the brighter side, the BOY and I have spent some quality time together, including this special dinner.  We have enjoyed telling stories and celebrating Emmy’s frisky life and adventures.  We booked a trip to Las Vegas with our close friends and had a fun birthday dinner with my parents and brother. Despite being insanely busy at work, I have made it to a few uplifting yoga classes.  Including tonight when I was able to attend an amazing evening class with my favorite teacher.  On the blog front, I found time to update some older posts with new and bigger pictures, including this one about last year’s snow storm.


Somehow, I made it through this extra long month (Happy Leap Year!) and have survived to tell the stories.  Now that the 29th of February is almost over, I am ready to leap into March.



February Goals

Add more greens (kale, collards, chard) into my and the BOY’s diet

     -I have been eating more greens, mostly kale, but had a delicious spinach smoothie!

Put together a training plan for a half marathon and triathlon

     -I have been running (even 11 miles on one day) and lifting, but don’t have an official plan.  As we say at work…Continue Goal.


Add weekly exercise post to blog

     -I’ve gotten started with this (check out this 20 minute at home workout!), but actually spent more time updating old recipe posts.
