How I find time to workout and stay healthy with a crazy schedule

For the past two years I’ve been taking at least two classes every semester in the evenings (including the winter and summer semesters) so I can complete my pre-requisites for physical therapy school. This hectic schedule means that pretty much every minute of my day is planned…including workouts! I’m really fortunate to have access to…

One busy weekend…

The weekend started with a 1st birthday party for one of the kids of a couple at my church.  Although the baby I’m holding in the picture above was not the one whose birthday it was.  Her name is Ellie…and she is one of my favorite little nuggets ever!

Due to this injury, my butt has been stuck either biking (using an exercise bike) and/or taking Zumba classes (which I have fallen in love with and sort…

The (not really) New and (hopefully) Improved Endorphin Junkie Blog :)

Good morning Everyone! Due to difficulties with the website where I had the original Endorphin Junkie blog, I switched to a different website that I can actually write posts in without having to figure out HTML (sorry…my husband is the computer junkie…I’m the endorphin junkie).  So welcome to the new site! My hope is to update…
