Ahora 9: What's Trending in February

Greetings from the snow belt. 

A walk before the snow really started to pile up. 

My town had another snow day today (Monday), as another 14 inches of snow fell on top of the three feet that was already there. 

Two more back-to-back snow days this week. 
And so I won't.

Here's what's trending in my world these days. 

  • I am still working through The Compound Effectby Darren Hardy, but have also added these gems, thanks to some local blogger friends. 
  • Kerry, from Till Then, Smile Often, read The Power of 100, by Shaun King, and her review prompted me to some ORGs myself... Outrageously Ridiculous Goals. 
  • And Candace, from Lucky Scarf, sang the praises of You are a Badass by Jen Sincero. The writer's in-your-face attitude is exactly what I need to provide the fire I need to proceed with those ORGs. 

  • My Beachbody website
  • My new Facebook page dedicated to making a difference in the lives of others' health and wellness...please like, share, and comment. 

Still thinking about...

  • How to migrate over to WordPress seamlessly
  • My non-existent media kit 
  • A fitness challenge I can achieve this spring
  • Finishing Starting two online classes I elected to take this spring

  • Shakeology. I feel so much better when I start my day with a shake. I am so happy to be back on track. My craving for simple sugar carbs have subsided and I am not as hungry between meals. Winning. 

  • Both my husband and I are participating in the 21-Day Fix, so we're eating cleaner, less processed food, and less sugar. We're eating balanced, well portioned meals. We're not cutting anything out, but trying to eat less junk. One day at a time. 

  • Scandal is back from its winter hiatus. Based on the premiere, I think it's going to be a scary season, but bring it! #TeamFitz all the way.
  • Beachbody workout videos. It's amazing how your body recognizes patterns in movement and struggles with new patterns. Today, I did the Total Body Cardio Fix. It was a challenge. Mixing up the routine, clearly, has measurable results. 

  • My New England Patriots' win in Super Bowl XLIX. 

Well, that's about it. 

What's happening ahora in your world?


  1. If you need help with your media kit, I can help you!!!!!

  2. I love that first photo of your gate in the snow! So pretty! What's going on here this month- looking forward to a trip to Florida, my son is obsessed with popsicles and I am thinking about how to make our "every day" more exciting!

  3. As always you have beautiful photos to share with us, and WHOA...14 inches of snow! YIKES!

  4. Good for you guys on the 21 day fix! It makes a huge difference in how you feel, move, sleep, everything!

  5. That is so much snow! I can't even imagine. It's snowed once here in the three years I have lived in SC. We got three inches and everything was shut down for 3 days! A lot different from when I lived in KY and we went anyway. I hope all of that is gone soon!

  6. That is a lot of snow - so glad I live in the South. Congrats on your new Facebook page heading over to give you a like. Cathy

  7. I am thinking about exercising and cutting out my morning Starbucks, but that's as far as I've gone. Heard about the 21-day cleanse by haven't tried it . . . I was afraid it involved housework. Enjoyed this!

  8. It is a lot of snow. Thank you so much for stopping by, and for the FB like, Cathy. :-) I really appreciate it!

  9. It is a lot of snow. I am eagerly awaiting spring. :-) I lived in South FL for a while, and boy, on days like this, I miss it! Thank you so much for stopping by.

  10. And the thing is, Mandee...that was before we got all of the snow. We ended up with another 24.1 inches, on top of the previous 30. Yikes, indeed! And thank you, but I think the snow looks better in pictures than in real life, for sure. ;-)

  11. Thank you, Rachel, but I think the snow looks better in pictures than in real life, for sure. I lived in South FL for a while, and boy, on days like this, I miss it! Have a wonderful trip, enjoy the popsicles, and enjoy the little moments that make our days grand. :-)

  12. Thank you, Bekah! Please share and comment as you see things you like. :-)

  13. Thanks, Rebecca. I have a blogger friend ready to go who was going to do one for me last summer. I just have to give her the go-ahead. :-)

  14. You got hit hard with the snow, makes me thankful for the amount we got. My February is consumed with my company's upcoming move.

  15. I miss snow days! But then again, I certainly don't miss all that snow. I guess I can't have everything. Good luck in your move to WordPress!
