Day 3021 – Bret Has Officially Broken A World Record

Bret and I have had to make a lot of sacrifices over the years. Sometimes for paying down debt, sometimes to protect ourselves, sometimes for our health, sometimes to achieve something great. Since Bret is not a bragger, I’m going to share this for him. In October of 2013, Bret attempted to break the Guinness World Record for the fireman’s carry. He unofficially broke it, but then found out he hadn’t run far enough by only about ten steps. He decided to try it again in California, carrying his dad. He attempted it again, and unofficially broke it in December of 2014. For a number of reasons, we weren’t able to submit everything until the Fall 2016/Spring 2017. In a lot of ways, Bret had let this go. Whether it was ever officially recognized or not, he knew he broke it. We’ve been periodically checking the status, but there have been a long line of other Guinness World Record attempts getting reviewed.

Nearly three years after his 2nd attempt, Bret was informed that he officially broke the record. Ladies and gentlemen, my husband is a Guinness World Record holder. You can see him online here:

Bret, thanks for showing me how sacrifices, discipline, and saying no are worth it.

Day 3020 – Spreadsheet Day

I am a big fan of spreadsheets, and I’m SO glad that I have a whole day to celebrate them! I make spreadsheets for everything. Whether it’s a checklist to print off for my goals, or creating Pivot Tables for Bret’s business, or an Epic Road Trip Planning Budget, I LOVE spreadsheets!

What’s your favorite way to use spreadsheets?

Day 3019 – Slow And Small Steps Are Key To Actually Completing Your Goals

There are a number of things I’ve been wanting to do for a long time – running a 5k, making money passively online, living full time in an RV, traveling more than I’m in one spot, having several businesses. There are not enough hours in the day to do it all, and I’m learning ways to get around that and actually meet those goals. The biggest thing I’ve learned, and certainly one of the most life changing in the last few months, is taking small steps every day. Instead of taking days and hours and hours of work to get “caught up” on Pinterest, I’m slowly building things up, reviewing what content I can share, and planning ahead. Instead of trying ambitious workout plans, I’m doing small things every day. I have never been this consistent with working out. The hardest thing for me is drastically decreasing how much I run. I love to run, but my body isn’t where my head is. Not even close. I ran just over half a mile last week, and I was SO sore (like could barely walk) for almost a week. Two days ago, I ran a quarter mile, that’s it. But I wasn’t that sore, and I can run again today. Bret has told me for a long time, that there’s no such thing as too slow, why does it take me so long to actually listen to him?

So take heart, there’s no such thing as too slow.

Day 3018 – Missing Photography

As I’ve been reviewing my blog for things to share on Pinterest, I’m in the thick of finding photos from weddings we photographed. Since it’s a crazy day, I figured I’d share a few of my favs from behind the scenes.

Day 3017 – Be Bald And Free Day – or – I Love My Husband’s “Hair”

Today, I wanted to celebrate Bret embracing himself. His hair started to run away from his forehead a year or two after we got together. After he got out of the Marines, he decided to just keep it buzzed or shaved. I love it! It also teaches me to embrace who I am, and not who I think I should be or who other people want me to be.
