New Year, New Goals

I’m not a believer in New Years Resolutions. I am a believer in goals, all year long! I write them down daily to remind myself and often cross them off as I accomplish them. I registered for two runs today. I can run a mile. But I need to get back into shape and creating […]

Happy New Year!

2021 was definitely not what anyone expected, nor was 2020. 2022 here we are! The last 2 years have taught me SO much. The last three and a half years taught me so much more. What’s important. What’s not important. What deserves my energy and time, what does not. So many losses, so many gains. […]

Trying New Things 🧠

I am exhausted. Daily. I wake up exhausted. So much of what I do during the day like reading and crosswords is fatiguing to your brain.

New Year, New Goals! 21 habits and goals I am planning for in 2021.

What 2020 Taught Me

I had so many plans for 2020 that just did not happen. It’s the last day of 2020 and I could not be happier. But what did I get out of this pandemic? How did it happen for me, what did I learn from one hell of an unexpected year? I have learned to really […]

Exercise and MY Traumatic Brain Injury Journey

Exercise has been on of my greatest struggles with TBI, but I also acknowledge how lucky I am to even be able to physically exercise still. I did Orange Theory before my accident, I had started on 12/4/2016 and went regularly. I started Orange Theory Fitness (OTF) after I had broken my back, gained 30 […]
