PiYo Week 1 Recap

So remember last week how I made myself a nice pretty schedule in hopes that my DVDs would show up Saturday!? Well of course they did show up, but too late in the day to do anything. So, because I’d already finished my run for the day, I kept that one on the calendar, but adjusted the days and the rest of the run schedule. I wanted to keep my long runs on Saturdays, so I have time to recover on Sundays. But, in the midst of adjusting the run days, I came across this article that talks about only training 3 days per week for a half. Again considering the last two half marathons I completed I hadn’t trained at all, I decided this 3-days per week plan may be a little smarter. Plus I admit freely… even though I love running, it’s probably been well over a year since I’ve run regularly. With this plan, they recommend one long run, one tempo run, and one speedwork run per week, plus cross training. Completely …

30 before 30

  These lists are everywhere! I love reading them! And if you know me at all… you know I also LOVE making lists. I love the accomplished feeling of crossing something off a list. So considering I’m on the road to 30… I had to jump on the bandwagon and make my own 30 before 30 list before it’s too late. :) I tried to avoid the abstract ones like ‘see the world’ and ‘become a better person’ but instead tried to find things that I may actually be able to accomplish… :) If nothing else, I know I’ll have fun along the way. Hop over to my 30 before 30 page to follow my progress over the next 11 1/2 months… and let me know if you’d like to join me in any of these endeavors! 1  |  Grow something edible. 2  |  Learn to cold brew coffee. 3  |  Visit a new state. 4  |  Learn how to play chess. 5  |  Take a class. 6  |  Create a PDF sewing pattern. 7 …

Working from Home & Undecided

Took a day off work today to work from home :/ Most days, it’s just too crazy at work to actually get anything important done… of course I get plenty done, but it’s the balance of what is urgent/not urgent and important/not important that they always talk about in time management. Sometimes I get too bogged down with the small stuff that is urgent but not important. These things are easy to get done and push through, but they’re not necessarily what I should be dedicating my time to. BUT, it always seems that these things are of utmost importance to other people, so they push you to get them done. Well some days… like today… I just have to run away from the small stuff to be able to focus on the bigger, more important stuff… as is the case today with P&T (Pharmacy & Therapeutics… it’s the committee I run that determines what we add to the formulary, what we take off, approval of authorized drug lists for the clinic, contract compliance and …

Pup Vest Sighting

I always get excited when I see BDAR pups in the vests that I’ve made. Here’s a picture from an adoption drive that I stole from Facebook the other day:  Pretty sure this sweet baby has already been adopted, but you can see all the other awesome adoptable BDAR pups here. Here’s what I’ve made so far… let me know if you have any suggestions for new ones. It’s almost about time to make another batch :) And if anyone ever uses my tutorial for adopt-me vests, please send pictures! I would love love love to see them! Adopt Me Vests – Round One plus a rough tutorial Adopt Me Vests – Round Two Donation Dog Vests Until next time,

MakeLifeRx

Blog Update! As I mentioned somewhere is the midst of this ginormous post… I’m ready for a change… something simpler… and a blog name that’s less attached to a particular phase of my life. Hence, MakeLifeRx! Saying goodbye to FINZO 43P… FINZO stood for Finn & Zoe… my beloved fur babies. And 43P is the Air Force Specialty Code for pharmacists. As I move into the next phase of my life and away from the Air Force in a few months, I wanted something that would be a little more flexible. Plus, the more I look at FINZO 43P, the more I feel like I should have used it as a password rather than a blog name. Granted, now that I’ve said that, I will definitely not be using it as a password, but you get my drift! It’s meant to represent my journey into making life what I want it to be. A prescription for the good life, if you will (or maybe you won’t… lol… that sounds pretty lame, I know). Along with that, …
