Love my workout views

It’s Friday and my workout day, the view with the garage open was amazing with the sunrise, fog, birds chirping and owl 🦉 hooting. Can’t beat this view. And that’s our car which the dirtiness kills my husband but it comes with where we live, we got it when we moved up here in July. […]

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. […]

A white Christmas 🎄

Walking, running and making money 🤣

I ran/walked 2.6 miles total, 1.87 on the peloton app and then kept running and walking and picking up garbage on the side of our country road. Next time I will bring a garbage bag, the wind kept blowing stuff off my plate aka the hub I found. Turbo got some good exercise too. I […]

Like TBI, Life Is Best When You Are Able To Adapt

Like we learned with TBI, we have to be willing to adapt to our new life. This has so helped with Covid happening. I don’t drive, getting to the gym is not doable for me so we got a Peloton. But since Covid have acquired so much more and made our home garage gym work […]

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. After my therapy zoom visit yesterday we made a list of not so fatiguing things and fatiguing things. Reading, working out and riding my peloton, doing crossword or word […]

What 2020 Taught Me
