As I pick up more shifts and add back more classes, I've been trying to create a better balance for myself during the week. Not only for myself but for the kids as well. I reached my point of burn out and I'm slowly trying to recover. I started "really" picking things back up the … Continue reading 3 Ways I’m Creating Balance.
Burnt Out. 🌿
Yet again, I am burnt out. My ADHD brain doesn't know when to say no... but it has been better. Back in the day, pre-diagnosis, I would have said YES to everything. So 100% of things. Now I'm between 50-60% saying "YES" to what I should probably say no to. Not bad, but still a … Continue reading Burnt Out. 🌿
Almost 35. 🌻
I'm just about four months from turning 35. I don't know why it feels like such a midlife crisis to me. So please just bear with me until June. I won't go back into it ALL (you can read more on that jist HERE), but there have been quite a lot of changes that … Continue reading Almost 35. 🌻
2023 Intentions. ❄️
As I mentioned in my last post, I thought 2022 was going to be my year. The other day, my partner told me that I did a lot of "finding myself" last year. He told me I wasn't quite yet there, but that I was on the right path. It's true; in 2022, I completely … Continue reading 2023 Intentions. ❄️
Minimalist [ish] Planner.
Over the passed year or so, I've been trying to get back into the habit of being a better planner. Before Covid hit, I was very on top of my "planning" game. Yet for some reason, when I started working again, mixed with my partner moving in, my oldest in school, more extracurricular activities plus … Continue reading Minimalist [ish] Planner.
Stoicism and Control.
I've finally been able to finish THIS book* I started a month ago. What stood out for me was the topic of "externals." What are "externals?" Stoic "externals" are NOT in your control, therefore they are NOT up to you. They are things such as your body, work, your home and such. In the book, … Continue reading Stoicism and Control.
I had my first panic attack in years. Since I've been able to manage most of my ADHD symptoms (and anxiety), I started "over doing it" again. There were also some things going on behind the scenes that I won't dive into. Let's just discuss about me having difficulty managing living with a Maximalist. While, … Continue reading Chaos.🍃
Stress: Part III
Co-parenting isn't always easy. Things haven't been easy over the past few months. Going from having the kids four days a week to essentially six with little help has been rough. And I mean rough. I know, I know there are others that have it WORSE then I do. I'm beyond grateful to have them … Continue reading Stress: Part III
I used to have a bad habit with impulsive decisions. Like I previously mentioned, I lost the desire for the fitness industry. It was just time to end that part of my life. Perhaps in time my desire for training and teaching will come back. For now I just want to focus on the most … Continue reading Impulse. 🌿
At the end of this month, I will be leaving the fitness industry. To be honest, it just does not align with my current path of life. It's been a wonderful 10 + years but it's time. I don't know where life will take me yet but all I know is this feels right and … Continue reading It’s Time.
