Life Currently… December 2017

After being in Asia for two weeks, home for a week, and then in Kentucky for a week, it’s nice to be back home to stay for a bit. It was an awesome time in Kentucky meeting my newest nephew, Nathan Scott, and my pretty-much-niece, Rose Caroline (photos on Instagram). New baby smell is my favorite! It was great to see a bunch of friends and family, as always.

Fraser is in San Fran this week at TRX headquarters and the boys are with their mom until Friday so it’s just me and Tango. We’re using this time to catch up on lots of Netflix, podcasts, and outside time, while also trying to get some Christmas shopping and wrapping done before everybody is back this weekend.

Making: Promotional fliers and photos for my new classes around town that I’m launching in January!

Wanting: Snow! With this run of warm weather, all the snow that was here is now gone. While I’m enjoying driving on clear roads, I’m still hoping for some snow soon so we can have a white Christmas and get back to skiing!

Writing: Articles for fitness publications and my next newsletter that will be out by the end of the week. If you’re not currently on my newsletter email list, you can sign up in the right column!

Reading: L’dOL all the way through Issa Rae’s “Awkward Black Girl,” am in the middle of Smarter, Faster, Better productivity book, & Truly, Madly, Guilty  just popped onto my Kindle from the library. [Read more…]

You are GROWN. Between family, college, roommates, a brief marriage, and another roommate, I’d lived with other people my entire life.

I’d lived in San Diego from 2006-2010 and in 2014, at age 30, was wanting to go back for just one more year. I decided that when I got there, I’d live alone and see how it went. Just one year seemed like a good enough time span to try it out. I lived alone from April 2015 to June 2016. I did it! And here’s what I learned: [Read more…]
