Pros and Cons of Summer

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.

A Glimpse into my Planner – What Happened in May

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.

May recap

Just to recap:
Each day not only has lines for my to do list, it also has 3 sections that I love:

  • Wellness – Daily workouts.
  • Gratitude – 3 things for which I’m grateful on that given day.

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…

2018 Indy Mini 5K race recap

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!).
