Health is the Crown

Health is the crown on the well person’s head that only the ill person can see.”-Robin Sharma

Healthy!

Latest monthly blood-work shows my CA level (Cancer Antigen marker) has gone down to 6.0, the lowest it has been in over a year! I’m up for my 6 month mammogram in September (high risk for Breast Cancer).

Ten things I’m grateful for:

  • Travel-California, Oregon, Washington, and Mexico. Saw great friends, ate great food, drank delicious wine and Mexican-made margaritas
  • Friends-all of you who have been there by my side during this 5 year journey
  • Fight club-this rock solid group of supporters
  • Family-the whole crew! Most especially my husband and children. You have seen the good, bad, and ugly of cancer.
  • Faith-the many prayers from all over the world!
  • My Bullet Journal– a place to track all of my healthy habits-I’m now two years without eating red meat
  • #midpacific Five years ago on August 6, 2012,  I had just started work and three days later was diagnosed with Stage 3C Ovarian Cancer. My school supported me through it all-the surgeries, the chemotherapy, the radiation, and recovery!
  • IB Coordinator position and USAFA liaison
  • Walking partners!
  • ENERGY!

I’m so excited for what is yet to come!

What would you do with 417 hours? #Productivity and #motivation

I’m always wondering where I can find extra time in my day to do the things that make me happy! Wondering where all my time went, I recently downloaded the Life Cycle App.  This app gives you the ability to quantify that question of.. where does all my time go?

My life Cycle App tells me that I spend between 1 and 1.15 hours a day commuting back and forth to work. Not actually breaking news, but this became food for thought.Specifically, what could I do with all that commuting time in #hitraffic.

Here is a typical day (the app automatically tracks your movements-no need to input data)

Here is a one month break down:

Then, my sister sent me an article suggesting that if we disconnected from social media by a bit, our productivity could increase by leaps and bounds. 

The Simple Truth behind reading 200 books a year

According to better human’s blog post, it’s all about creating new habits!

“Getting good at habit formation took me years….One game-changing idea from a good book is worth thousands of dollars. If a coach helps you read ONE more good book a year, you already get your money’s worth.”

Would they be science and math books?

 

But wait, what if it’s an audio book, or a podcast?

I’d like to share with you some of my favorite podcasts that motivate and inspire me!

One of my favorite quotes from Robin Sharma…” Problems are servants. They help you grow and lead to better things, both within your organization and in your life. To resist them is to avoid growth and progress. Embrace and get the best from the challenges in front of you. And understand that the only people with no problems are dead.”
