December’s Mid Month Update!

Can you believe it is the middle of December already?!  Time is really flying by.  I’m looking forward to Christmas and seeing my friends and family.  I have a week of vacation and could really use the downtime!  If you remember I did my first video blog for you guys on the first.  If you missed it or want to check it out again you can find it on my You Tube Channel.  So let’s check in and see how I’m doing on my monthly goals!

I’m actually psyched to look back on them because it’s been so busy I don’t really remember what they were!


I’ve been on this! Not as diligently as I’d hoped but I’m trying to keep things balanced and at least some of it is getting done. My goal is to get through Chapter 9 which is half way through the material by the end of December.  I’m about to start Chapter 6 so I think this is possible.  I have some vacation time and down time in the coming weeks so I really hope to settle in for a few hours here and there to make this a reality.  Getting up at 5am has been the best scenario and is when I am most productive.

Studying at 5am is most productive!

Start Planning a Fundraising Event!

My fundraising event planning has been in full force.  I’m planning a fundraiser to do here, starting very soon,  with some really nice prize packs for you to all win.  So stay tuned for that!  I also am planning a fundraiser party with a few other girls from Team in Training.  For those in the Boston area it will be on January 7th at The Brahmin from 6 to 8pm.  We have lots of items for the raffle and silent auction! All proceeds will go directly to The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.  I’d love to meet you Boston area readers!   I’m trying to hit the $2000 mark by December 31st! And ultimately have to raise $4000 before January 31st.  I have quite a way to go and would appreciate any support from the blogging community!  You can find my fundraising page here:

My page also shares why I am running and the story behind my motivation! I can’t wait to run the Boston Marathon!


I’ve been doing really well this goal! I’ve been posting about once a week about yoga.  I have a lot more ideas for yoga posts as well.  Michael and I have been taking a class on Sunday mornings at South Boston Yoga with David Vendetti.  His class is amazing! The flows and poses are so challenging! Michael and I are usually sore for days after his classes and my body always feels so aligned and strong after.  I am still practicing about 3 times during the week.  I love practicing 4 days a week.  It really takes your practice to the next level!


Keep My Balance. 

So far this goal has been going well.  Lists are keeping me sane and organized.  With my fundraising coming together I feel a bit less stressed but am still anxious about meeting my minimum.  I  have still found time to relax which is good.  And I’ve resolved to the fact that not everything needs to get done immediately and it’s OK if it takes me all week to accomplish my to do list.

To Do Lists Keep Me Organized!

Enjoy the Holidays.

This one is really starting to happen now.  Michael is surprising me on Saturday and taking me somewhere for my gift which I am so excited about! We also had our work Christmas party which helped to spread some holiday cheer.  I’ll definitely be in the spirit when I get home to my parent’s next week.  My mom always decorates our house, makes tons of amazing food and makes Christmas amazing!  And then for New Year’s Michael and I are going to Montreal to celebrate! I got the last of my Christmas gifts and am really excited to give them! This always gets me ready for Christmas!

My Dad and I Last Christmas

Are you keeping the balance in your life? How do you manage things when you have a lot going on?  Are you in the Christmas spirit? What are you looking forward to most this holiday season?

    What a sweet pic of you and your dad. Love your bangs in that pic, as well as your necklace! Shoulders are lookin toned as well 😉 that’s great that you have kept up with yoga 3x a week! Every time I do yoga I feel great afterwards but never really do it more than once every couple of weeks because I tend to crave the sweatier workouts. I want to find a place nearby that has hot yoga because I think that’d be the perfect mix for me. Bikram is nearby but is too expensive and also too slow. I like more of a flow.

      Aw thanks Caitlin! I would really recommend trying new studios until you find one that will kick your butt. I have a couple classes where I leave completely drenched in sweat and exhausted. It’s an incredible workout. I look a flow as well and try to find classes that are a Vinyasa Flow in an 80 or 85F room. You may like those!
