Let’s face it, there are pros and cons of summer season. Sure, a lot of that depends on the type of person you are…cold nature versus warm nature maybe? Perhaps your job allows you for some time off in the summer or maybe you have a job that ramps up mid-year.
No matter your view of summer, it can be a great time to step up our health and fitness game. Some things come more easily in the summer, but there are also cons to the summer months as well. Let’s see how we can capitalize on the pros and how we can fix the cons.

I got a new planner this year and so I started a series that I’m titling “A Glimpse Into My Planner”.
Each month* I’m giving you a glimpse of what’s been happening, because I now keep EVERYTHING in this planner since there is a space for EVERYTHING.
Just to recap:
Each day not only has lines for my to do list, it also has 3 sections that I love:
- The Big 3 – This helps me prioritize. What 3 things MUST I get done today?
- Wellness – Daily workouts.
- Gratitude – 3 things for which I’m grateful on that given day.
I also make note of things the Lord shows me during my daily quiet time.
This new planner has reduced my desk by 3 books, and I have it all in one place and I love it. I also love going back through my month to see what worked, what didn’t, what I got done, what I still need to do and so on.
Let’s take a look back at May…

A few weeks ago when I was planning my blog schedule, I thought it would be fun to write a recap of my first time running the 2018 Indy Mini 5K instead of the half marathon.
I’ve written a few race recaps since I started blogging back in 2015.
It was in 2016 when I started having knee problems. What I thought might have been a torn meniscus (although probably was at one time) ended up being worse than that…..arthritis. And not just any arthritis but pretty bad, no cartilage left in the knees and little bone spurs, etc, etc. All for the doctor to say that I have bad knees and I just need to learn to manage them (whatever that really means!).
