Weekend Recap: Mountain Weekend of Unplanned Rest Days


My weekend started out a little bit early, as I headed to the mountains Thursday after work. My company was giving us a four day weekend for Memorial Day, and I was excited to get started! I took a long time to get going on Friday morning, both reading in bed and then eventually really craving a bagel. I decided to go to Avon to pick one up before heading out to hike. On the way back, Sadie and I saw a moose on the side of the road, right next to the trailhead where I was planning to hike. …

App I Love: Stretchly


My January was a little bit of a bust – I was probably only about half successful with my New Year’s resolutions (which I still haven’t even formally blogged about!). But I’m taking the new month as an opportunity to recommit to my goals and habits, and one of those new habits is my use of the Stretchly app on my computer. Stretchly is a simple computer app that pops up periodic reminders on your desktop for you to take either a microbreak or a full break. You can program how long of an interval to go between each microbreak, …

An Ode to my iPod Nano


Ever since December, I’ve been trying to clean out my house and get a rid of a ton of stuff. And for the most part, I’ve been pretty successful! I’m not following Marie Kondo or anything, but I have been replacing things in my house that were placeholders with new pieces that, as corny as it sounds, genuinely give me joy. One thing that I haven’t gotten rid of or replaced, though, is my clock radio, circa 2003. Let’s be honest, I use my phone alarm (actually, my Fitbit – that vibration feature is awesome) to wake myself up in the …

The Future of Transportation… If We’ll Risk It


Today I attended the Colorado Transportation Summit, a fascinating conference that focused on the future of transportation and how it will change. The keynote speaker was Tom Gebhardt, the President of Panasonic Automotive Systems. I didn’t even know that Panasonic worked in automotive systems, but it turns out, they’re producing some really cool technology aimed at automating the way we move from place to place. Here’s a cool video we got to watch about the first shipment done by self-driving truck, right here in Colorado: Over the course of his keynote, Tom shared a number of interesting statistics around the …

App I Love: Habitbull

In January, I started using a new app, and I love it so much that I’ve been opening it at least daily. (It helps that the app has a feature you can enable to pop up and remind you to use it each night, for when I’m forgetful.) Habitbull is a simple habit tracker that allows you to tally how well you stick to your goals, and I think it’s made a big difference in how I approach mine. After downloading the app, you’ll be prompted to set up as many habits as you like to track. I recommend starting …
