On this episode, I share my experience learning to crochet, some of the basic terms of crocheting and how to get started. There is information on types of yarn, hooks, and all of the various projects you can make once you learn how to crochet.
Run Walk Run has rekindled my passion for running (and walking)!
I recently attended one of Jeff Galloway's Running Schools. This is what I've learned from the past year of running, changing to the run-walk-run program and also how much I learned from meeting Jeff and learning more how to utilize his plan to the fullest.
In this episode, I share my experience choosing to go Gluten Free after going through the 8Safe Elimination Diet. Listen to the episode for more on what I have learned and some tips if you're interested in going gluten-free. My decision to do so was related to health reasons, not weight-loss.

On this episode, I share how I came to learn about making homemade kefir as well as how to properly say it and how you can learn to make your own at home. It's super fun and pretty simple, just give it a try!
In this episode, Chris comes on as a special guest Co-Host to discuss how we handle the Christmas Season in a frugal manner. We talk about paying for experiences vs. things, our holiday budgeting, what Christmas cards have worked best for us, and homemade gifts.
It's a quick recap of what we've learned in the past 10 years of our marriage and the holiday expectations.
I believe talents are something we may be born with, but I also believe talent is something we can discover and shape that is already within ourselves. Sure, our bodies may have physical limitations not allowing us to reach certain goals, and we may have some limitations in our brain power, but I’d venture to say that most things are within our reach if we truly want to learn to do them (or be them).
Lifelong learning comes in when you flex your growth mindset muscles on a regular basis. Once you welcome the growth mindset into your life, now you’re open to learning for life however you wish.
Think about your life and your goals. Was there a part of it where you thought - I just can’t do this. I’m not talented enough. And did you push through, or give up on that dream or path? Or have you always been a lifelong learner and it’s just been what you’ve known all along? I’d love to hear your stories!
I love that his first suggestion is to take notes by hand using a simple lined notebook.
Where can you learn on a budget…
Your local library
Local events or meetups
Online courses or MOOCS
I’ve taken the Child Nutrition Course from Stanford University last year on Coursera which was a great blend of learning via reading, books, and lectures via video. I’ll link in the show notes to courses from:
What I encourage you to do today is write down 10 things you’d like to learn how to do.
Why 10? Well, according to James Altucher, you easily can write down four or five ideas. Once you hit six and beyond, you start to sweat. By exercising your idea muscle just as you would regular muscles when they start to sweat is when they start to grow. When you push past the easy answers, you might find something more challenging to get you started. (https://jamesaltucher.com/2014/05/the-ultimate-guide-for-becoming-an-idea-machine/)
