Introvert Seeks World

A Journey Into the Unknown Universe


Reflections on July- in Five Sectors

So this past month was a bit of a busy one (no kidding, it has been a month since I last posted, right?).  I am pretty happy with my accomplishments and activities over the past 31 days.  Here is the best of the best from this past month. 1. I’ve traveled a lot this month….

This busy thing called life

Life has been busy again and I find the sad excuse *not* to blog.  It has been hard lately to focus on non-work things.  I’m kind of glad I don’t have kids, because I probably wouldn’t have much time to entertain them.  Between work and fitness stuff, anything else- down to a grocery store trip-…

8 Things I Dislike About A Snail’s Pace with Weight Loss

I need to admit something. I’ve been moving at a snail’s pace with this weight loss thing (yeah, this is going to be a weight loss post!).  Or at least- that’s how it looks.  It isn’t how I feel.  It is hard to explain, but I can say one thing.  I don’t like moving at…

I could’ve danced all day at the #Zumbathon

This past weekend, I participated in the Zumbathon ® for Adria Diden at the East Communities YMCA here in Austin.  It was a great event and I had the chance to participate with many other instructors as well as with folks from work who came to support the cause.  It was Wonder Woman themed and I made…

I’m Not into #MLM and here’s why…

To start off, I am a much better customer than a seller of anything.  I like to buy stuff (see pie chart above).  I like to shop around and try different products or indulge in cool things that are wonderfully luxurious- but at a decent price.  I like stuff.  I love Scentsy, Pampered Chef, Beachbody,…

*Crickets Chirping*…… HELLO!

Me with the Booty Sisters of ATX. We are booty shaking specialists. What is going on?! It has certainly been a while since I’ve posted very much of anything.  I could say I’ve been busy and that might be an understatement, but now that I have a moment- I do have a few things to…

#nospendapril Day 6 – Batch Cooking Rocks

Today was a beautiful rainy day. I say beautiful because it means I don’t have to water my plants- I just let nature do it for me.  I love the rain and how it turns everything green. A rainy day is a perfect day for batch cooking.  I threw down with some breakfast tacos for…

#nospendapril Day 5 – Food in Moderation

One of the rules of my #nospendapril series is that I can purchase food in moderation as long as there was a plan for said food.  This translates to me not purchasing a lot.  I only purchased items that I knew would get used this week instead of the odd, “Oh, I’ll try this new thing out,”…

#nospendapril Day 4 – Cooking Burnout

Currently, one of the few things I’m looking forward to is the ultimate glory that is Moo Monday at Central Market.  I am a bit of a milkaholic and look forward to making a small enough purchase to take advantage of the milky madness. I’ve really been focusing on limiting my grocery shopping trips over…

#nospendapril Day 3 – Examining Desire

Well.  That about sums it up. One of the challenging things about this challenge is this #nospendapril thing is fighting the urge to make impulse purchases.  If it isn’t the Earthboxes, it might be the Fiesta dinnerware. So I received this email from the Fiesta online outlet outlining a mega bowl sale today.  Eight of the same style…
