Back to blogging...

Once again, something has occurred in my personal life (ahem, it's personal!) to inspire me to work on this blog again. Since I last wrote, a few things have changed, but much is the same:

Changes:
  • Practically graduated with my Masters degree in Political Science. I walked at the May Commencement ceremony and, after completing 2 more hours of independent study and my comprehensive exams next month, I'll officially be finished!
  • I'm playing softball this summer and returning to the community band. While I'm really enjoying both activities, they take up three nights a week (band rehearsal, softball practice, band concert) and almost every Sunday (games) of my summer. I am glad to have things to keep me busy, but just when I thought I'd have more time after classes were over...
Part of why I started this blog initially was to keep myself accountable for running and working out. Since it began I am still trying to run regularly. Before softball started I had fired up the old Couch to 5K plan again. However, between doing some traveling and a softball hit to my left knee (resulting in a GIANT bruise), I haven't been as faithful. I am planning to start back this week (honest!).

I am also really interested in cooking, trying new recipes, and learning how to eat healthier. I hope to post some new dishes and old favorites here for your perusal. Tonight's menu includes an old favorite of steak, baked potato, and corn. Probably going to wash it down with a Leinenkugel's Sunset Wheat or Honey Weiss for good measure. :)

Thanks for reading and stay tuned!
