The next leg of my fitness journey

What’s the next stretch of my fitness journey look like? Well, we all know Sumner bodies are made in winter, right? I’m going to spend the rest of my Fall getting a head start on that, buuuut with a hefty dose of self care. The big news, however, is that I’m going to make a [...]

It’s like this right now

I have probably mentioned that I use the Calm app for mindfulness, meditation, deep breathing, and help falling asleep. There is a feature called the Daily Calm, which is a 10-15 minute meditation that is new each day, and, oh my stars, y’all, today’s was perfect. Last night I was talking with E about how [...]

Fall Health Goals Week Five

This week was crazy and wonderful and different, because Scott took the week off! It was wonderful beyond words, and though I’m a bit worn out in some ways, I’m renewed in others. Food: even with Scott home this week I are really well, and I’m proud of that! Only thing really of note is [...]

Fall Health Goals Week Four

Here I am, halfway through the week again, and just now recapping things.  MomLife- Whaddya gonna do? I don't think I even promoted my last post on my SM accounts. It was a good week, though, and I'm super excited about where I am finding myself and where I see myself going in the near [...]

Fall Health Goals Week Three

So, yeah, this is a little late...but here I am! This past week I found myself not just feeling better than I had before that terrible energy trench last month, but better than I have in, maybe years, physically, at least. Mental health is improving, but, as I hope to share more about soon, it’s [...]

New goals as Fall Begins

With all the new perspective I'm gaining lately on rest, self love, and self care, I find myself in need of some new/updated goals for this fall that match. I'd really like to be finished losing weight-y'all know that by now. Part of it is that I just hate having things unfinished. I like to [...]

Quick Take: Feeling my feelings but not getting stuck in them

It's my rest day, and I'm really trying to embrace all that that is coming to mean in my life. I feel like I am approaching a baseline state emotionally after the tempest of the past couple weeks, but am not fully out of the woods, so I am being extra intentional about using this [...]

On Matching the Recovery to the Work

I'm super tired lately, and feeling intense effects of that on my physical and mental well being, but it's also good, because I have a tendency to go all in headfirst and overload and overwhelm and burn out and quit, and I'm learning to recognize what my body and mind need vs what I want, [...]
