2018: Thrive – Q3 Recap

Ah, here we are again. Q3 was a big one, so I sure as hell hope that I can remember everything that happened. Develop well / peaceful existence: – Carving out time for writing/reading I’ve still been reading but it’s been slow which is fine.

2018: Thrive

I started this damn post in October, so why am I just now getting it posted (late) in January?!

My relationship with myself has been a very long, very tumultuous road. And I don’t think I’m even half-way through. But when I pause and look back, I can see growth and … Continue reading My relationship with….me

So, I joined a gym….again……again

I know, I know. Again?! Hey, gotta keep trying until you find something that fits, right? Let’s take a quick trip down memory lane, shall we? Joined my first CrossFit gym in 2012 when I was done with treatments and in remission. I loved the workouts but really disliked the community and trainers. #fail Joined my second CrossFit gym in 2013 when I was ready … Continue reading So, I joined a gym….again……again
