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

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. It feels like a lot of projects and goals moved from the initiation/prep/wouldn't it be nice phase to the we're doing this/this has an end date … Continue reading State of Kate Monthly Edition: February

Road Ending: Must Take Next Exit

When I received my First Degree Green Belt promotion last August, my plan was to test for my Brown Belt in the spring. I was aware, even then, that I needed to step up my game a little.

Have you ever found yourself overwhelmed by the magnitude of the dreams you've allowed yourself to entertain? I have. In fact, I'm … Continue reading The Largeness of My Potential Terrifies Me

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

State of Kate Weekly Series: Black Friday Edition

For better or worse, it's official: The Holiday Season has begun. Insert horror theme-music here. This is pretty much the worst time of year to try and stay on any kind of fitness/health routine, because its all about self-indulgence, sugar, and fake enthusiasm. However, here we are, so let's make the best of it!  The … Continue reading State of Kate Weekly Series: Black Friday Edition
