State of Kate Monthly Edition: March

The overarching theme for March has been change. Whenever I sit down to write one of these updates, I always read through the last month's post to see how much has changed and what might need updating. So much has happened since I hit "schedule to post on February 22nd" last month! The biggest decision, … Continue reading State of Kate Monthly Edition: March

Slow Progress is Still Progress

This morning, I did 20 push-ups, and I was able to get my nose to the ground for 19 of them. Granted, I was doing the knee variation* but I was stoked nonetheless. I started Kempo training in December 2016. I have never called myself sporty. I've never called myself in shape. At the time, … Continue reading Slow Progress is Still Progress

State of Kate Monthly Edition: February

This month has been an exciting one, all told. I don't think that's often the case for February, so I guess it's right we let it have its dues.

State of Kate Weekly Series

There are eleven days left until Christmas, if you celebrate. Otherwise, there are eleven days until Tuesday, December 25th. I am limping along, taking solace in the fact that everyone else is as clueless as I in what to give people for gifts.  The Physical Activity: WIN. I did some kind of activity every day … Continue reading State of Kate Weekly Series

State of Kate Weekly Series

Welcome to December! It's the official countdown to the end of the year. The holiday craziness is in full swing, and we're inundated with saccharine Hallmark movies where all the women seem to be named either Holly or Noelle and their lives are incomplete until they meet a man under the mistletoe. But I'm not … Continue reading State of Kate Weekly Series

State of Kate Weekly Series

It's the last day of November. Tomorrow, I put up our Christmas trees. Yes, plural. We have the main tree in the living room, and a smaller one with a different color palette in the TV room. What can I say? I like the lights. My Jewish husband doesn't really care, but digs the fact … Continue reading State of Kate Weekly Series
