My Favorite Way to Strength Train + A Workout

My Favorite Way to Strength Train + A Workout

Trainer Tuesday? Instead of workout Wednesday. Whatever clever name fits the bill…I’ll go with it. I’m still playing around with a new blog schedule. (link). I think I’m getting the hang of school? It’s a tad weird to be in non-sciency courses (you can be in grad school and still say stuff like that, right?). And talking about health policy kind of makes my brain explode….but I’ll get there. Today I wanted to talk about my favorite way to strength train….

A Random Week of Workouts

A Random Week of Workouts

Hey everyone! How’s the week going? I feel like the month of September is SO all over the place for me. My work schedule is…weird due to 18 switches I made (not really) to accommodate for school. I started school and I’m trying to navigate that. I felt 92 years old trying to remember how to post something to a discussion board for blackboard. And it took me a solid 15 minutes to figure it out. Not. kidding. In my…

They get mercy, too…

They get mercy, too…

So I should preface this post with the fact that I wrote it maybe two months ago. I actually referenced these feelings in a post about learning to take constructive criticism (MY NEED for this). I wasn’t ready to hit post then, because I was writing this in the heat of the moment and I wanted to make sure I read it with a clear mind before I published. With that said, two months later, I’m dusting it off out…

Friday Faves and a Blog Update

Friday Faves and a Blog Update

Happy Friday, everyone! Sadly, this is my first of three. But after all those days off, I can’t complain! BLOG As far as the blog update, I’ve been going pretty steady with posting M/W/F. I’m not posting for a huge crowd, by any means ;). But I figured I should say on here that I will be adapting my new posting schedule with school starting on Monday, anywhere from 1-2 posts a week. Maybe 3 if I’m feelin’ it ;)….

A Charlottesville Weekend and a Fourth Year…

A Charlottesville Weekend and a Fourth Year…

Hello and happy Monday! How was your weekend? I’m on one of those realllllly long weekends that makes people think nurses never work. But I couldn’t even tell you the last time I’ve had 6 days off straight without taking vacation. And it just means next week will be a tad rough ;). I got off last Wednesday and go back this Wednesday. I used my long weekend to go to Charlottesville, Virginia to move my sister into college for…

November Project and the Weekend

November Project and the Weekend

Hello and happy Monday! This is one of those weeks where I feel like a semi-normal human being. I worked Friday, had your typical two day weekend off, and now work Monday-Wednsday. With the exception that most people don’t start their weekends on a Thursday. I’ll take it when it comes! The Weekend This weekend was a good mix of busy and relaxation. Probably more busy than anything but no complaints here 🙂 All good things. Friday I worked and…

Weeks after I work the weekend always feel so good.  I usually only work one or two days after that with a day or two off in between, and then I’m off the following weekend. So it’s super nice. And I can’t beat the beautiful weather I’ve had on my days off. Monday it actually rained which was…

Get to know me: Random facts

Get to know me: Random facts

  Sigh… I want to get back to workout Wednesdays at some point buuuuut I’m loving following the guide from Lauren Gleisberg so I just haven’t created any lately! I may have to pull out an old one soon 😉 I recently read one of these “Random Facts” posts and it was so fun to learn some of the different, random things behind the writer. We all have those random, maybe quirky things about us that really, help make us who we…

Short Term Missions: Part Two

Short Term Missions: Part Two

The Impact of Short Term Missions: (from the viewpoint of Amanda 😉 ) Disclaimer: I’m not sure I took a SINGLE one of these photos. Thanks to the awesome 2017 Mission team members. 🙂  Some often say, why travel THAT far and spend that much money for such a short period of time? Sometimes that little point in itself causes huge impact in the person receiving services on short term missions. “I can’t even believe a group of teenagers took a…

Short Term Missions: Part One

Short Term Missions: Part One

In this post, I really want to cover a basic overview of what short term mission trips are (based on my experience) and why I do them. On Monday I will be talking about the impact of short term missions.  And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” Romans 10:15 I first began going on short term mission trips in high school. For those…
