Running tips for your casual runner.

Running tips for your casual runner.

Hey friends! How’s it going? If you can’t tell I’m on the blogger struggle BUS. But, I’m adapting. Learning. Staying busy! As I’ve mentioned before, I used to be a pretty avid runner. Nowadays, I love love love high intensity circuits and strength training. I went two solid years without running and have recently enjoyed sprinkling it back in! Especially now with school only leaving me about 20-30 minutes to break a sweat. I love that I can just add…

Health and Fitness Confessions

Health and Fitness Confessions

I have a shoe problem. And when I say that, I consider myself a fairllllly frugal human being so I actually have control over the spending part. But take me into Nike/UA/Dicks and I’m drooling over nike metcons. And I’ve been thinking about them for a long long long time. BUT I do not have them because #discipline. But maybe soon because #treatyoself. In addition to shoes….I have a sock ADDICTION. Like both fitness and stupid socks. I have a…

A day in the life: A day off +moving+grad school

A day in the life: A day off +moving+grad school

Hello friends! Someone recently recommended “A Day in the Life” post. This felt kind of ridiculous because I do not by any means lead an exciting life. However, like other things, this  is just one of those things I love reading on others blogs! And I figure getting to know someone a little better is always kind of fun. So for a little background, I’m a nurse in a pediatric ICU. So I work three, twelve hour shifts a week….

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…

Friday Rambles

Friday Rambles

It’s Friday, and my work week was an insane Monday-Wednesday. And despite all my random drafts, I didn’t have it in me to post Wednesday. So today, you’re getting my random thoughts… 1. Comcast. I’m sure I’ll be the 5829582092849294893284759283758th complaint on the internet but WHY. Just why. I’ve been paying $70/month for like 3 channels and internet that doesn’t work. I went to be there for an appointment at my new place in the city for set up and…

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…
