Off

I woke up today, not really wanting to get out of bed. It’s been a struggle to do everything I normally do. I’ve been getting things done, but I’m working at a much, much slower pace. Which is okay. Tomorrow I will probably wake up and be back to normal. So I’m not beating myself …

MyFitnessPal

Today I would like to sing the praises of the free App  MyFitnessPal  by Under Armour.  I like it because it trains you to be conscious of what you're eating and make better choices. It also shows you - with numbers- how beneficial exercise is. I admit it took a few tries before I started using …

Be like a Kite

  Kites take off with wind, listen to the little voice in your head when it tells you to do something instead of procrastinating. Doesn't it seem like it takes more energy to keep thinking about having to do a particular thing than just to do it and get it over with?

There is a beautiful little medicinal garden at my university which consists of a variety of plants, …

Fitbit

This is the day I have been waiting for—F! I’ve been doing research on Fitbit for a class project and I have way too much I can say.  Since we have to keep it brief for the A-Z bloggers who are very busy writing posts every day and visiting other A-Z bloggers there is a short …
