I’m right smack in the middle of studying for my anatomy midterm that is on Thursday and I am feeling OVERWHELMED.
It’s a lot of info to know and taking this kind of material online isn’t the best for my type of learning style. Listening to lectures is more my style since I can gage which parts of the material are important and which parts aren’t based on how much time the prof spends on each subject....reading numerous chapters in a text doesn’t quite have the same effect.
So I’m taking a break from furious memorization to say hi.
What have I been up to besides studying for my midterm?
Mike has his anatomy midterm Tuesday so we’ve been study buddies.
We’ve been fighting off a cold bug in our house for the past few days. Mike got pretty sick with a nasty cold Saturday night and it lasted all day Sunday. I’ve been brewing David’s Tea’s Cold 9-1-1 24/7 to try to keep the cold bug away from me and to heal Mike’s sinuses and sore throat. This stuff is amazing. I’m not sure if it’s a placebo effect or if it actually works but I feel a million times better when I drink it.
Classic Sadie "ugh yoga again" face
I’ve been keeping up with my yoga! I’ve been trying to hit the mat for at least 30 minutes every day....some days are better than others but my body is absolutely LOVING the more the TLC it’s getting from a regular yoga practice.
Playing mega jenga at Mike’s annual September family event. You may see this at our wedding.....
We’ve spent a lot of time with family and friends lately and it’s been wonderful! Our fridge is full of baby announcements, wedding invites, and kid’s school pictures. Being in your late 20s seems to be when all these amazing life milestones happen at once and it’s such a happy time. I can’t wait for the next few years!
Wedding planning! No pictures of anything since it would just be pictures of my crazy detailed spreadsheets. We are getting so close to actually having a venue and date!
I have a few projects I’m working on for you guys and this site! In the works are:
*Fitness programs for you, created by me (standard and customized). I have a few standard programs that I’ve created for friends and family in the past and I’m working on a few more specific programs right now! Tell me: what’s a fitness plan you’d love to see? Weight loss? Build muscle? Time specific? Activity specific? I’d also love to offer customized plans on an individual basis so I can really tailor it to your needs and goals.
*Wearable goodies. I’ve been playing around with creating graphics for clothing, making jewellery, and other accessories. This one is probably a ways away from being on the site but it’s been fun toying with it for now!
*More opinion pieces. I’ve traditionally stayed away from writing opinion pieces on this blog but I’ve been finding myself wanting to write about some issues and topics that are going on in fitness and the online healthy living world. I absolutely LOVE to write (I was that weirdo in university who would rather write a massive research paper than so a ton of assignments and tests) and am particularly interested in the area of sports/gender roles/societal pressures. The majority of my electives in university were in Women Studies, Political Science, and Psychology so it's an area I'm incredibly passionate about. I’m finally going to take my personal goal for 2014 of not caring so much about what others think and put it into practice.
How have you been? Catch me up in your life! What’s one thing you did this weekend?
I’ll see you guys later! Back to memorizing muscles, bones, joints, latin words......
