Pinning Party!

Today I'm doing something a little different. I have been slaving away at rewriting the about me section of this blog, which has been no easy task. I originally wrote that section a few years ago. Needless to say, I am a changed woman. So go check it out when you get a chance. I must warn you it is a bit long.

I recently began reading a number of new blogs over the past few weeks. One is Cori over at Today she mentioned a little pinning party and I couldn't resist joining. Lindsay at is hosting this party. You just choose your five favorite posts, one's you would like to see on pinterest and create a post linking them with a short description. So with no further adieu my top five.

How I finally conquered a double digit run after an unsuccessful first attempt.

My experiences just beginning to workout.

And that's all! These are the ones I thought best reflect me and this blog, as well as, this journey I am on. Hope you enjoy! Just gotta keep moving!

Weekend in San Diego

I was looking forward to this past weekend for a number of reasons and a number of weeks. First, it marked the beginning of my Spring Break. I cannot tell you how much of a needed break this is. To start the break off right, J.R. and I packed up our bikes (and some clothes) and headed down to San Diego for the weekend.

Saturday J.R. arranged for us to ride with a former coworker of his. We knew he is quite a bit slower than we are, but we simply wanted a nice, relaxing ride. What we did not know was that this would be the worst.ride.ever.
I want to preface things by saying I know things could have been far worse. I, also, know that if this was my worst ride, I should consider myself lucky. However, all that does not change how horribly catastrophic this ride turned out.
Problem #1 should have become very readily apparent the minute we started. J.R.’s former coworker chose the route. This man is not a very experienced rider, because of this he shys away from the road. That’s fine, however…

Surprises: The Good and the Bad

Solving Life's Questions

Today's prompt was:

If you couldn't answer with your job, how would you answer the question, 'what do you do'?

Now that is a difficult question. So often we put so much of who we are into the job we do. I am no exception. Much of my sense of being, of who I am rests in my career. I believe much of this has to do with my chosen profession. Teaching is definitely not for the faint of heart. 

However, I also believe this has to do with the fact that I feel this is more of a calling. It is what I was created to do. This makes my job an essential part of who I am.

It is no wonder when I lost my job a few years ago, I was seriously tested. The lack of income was a struggle and hardship. However, my ego and my self-esteem took a major hit as the years came and left leaving me unable to find a teaching job. It was then I was first met with the question of if I'm not teaching, then who am I.

I came to this conclusion, I am still a teacher. Even without a classroom to prepare les…
