Marcia at Marcia's Healthy Slice had a "Currently" post last week. I love her posts like these, so here's my shot at what is currently going on.
Books: I'm not a big reader. Sometimes a book will suck me in, but that has only happened on a few rare occasions. Right now .... there are zero books on my bedside table.
Running Path:Well, like Marcia, I've spend a lot of time on the treadmill. But when I do get outside, I have an 8 mile loop that I really like. Last weekend, we had a miraculous 42F, sunny day, so I got out there in my shorts and had a blast!
Non-Running Workout.When I'm not running, I do enjoy doing DVDs. I also really like getting on my indoor bike, up in the hallway, and watching movies/catching up on Facebook while I cycle away.
Drink. Lately I've been on a major smoothie kick. It's how I start every morning. Well, that and two coffees.
Excitement: I am beyond excited for summer. Not only will it be summer. Which is a no brainer for me. Yay for being a teacher! But it will mark the end of daycare expenses forever. AND I'll be starting a summer track program! When we're not doing track, the kids and I will be at the beach.
Garden item.I so want to start seeds. I really do. It's killing me that I haven't done it. But we just rescued 3 cats. There are no safe places in my house where they won't terrorize my plants, dig them up, or worse, use them as a litter box. Of course, I'm speaking from a past experience with another naughty kitty. I'm more than likely just going to purchase tomato seedlings and plant seeds directly in the garden. If the snow ever melts.
I didn't do early planting last year, and this was one of my hauls. I think I did pretty well!
TV. Downton Abbey. Ward got me hooked on it and now I cannot stop. BUT the season ended last week, so I am feeling a little lost right now. Any suggestions for a gal with basic cable?
Indulgence.Peanut Butter and Chocolate Ice Cream cake from my birthday. The bad news is that I had too many slices. The good news is that it is gone. And there won't be another one of those in my house until next February.
Website:Pinterest. I still freaking love that site. Workouts, recipes, outfits. You name it. Even lesson planning ideas. Love it.
Pet Peeve. I have many lately. It really frustrates me to see friends openly poke fun at myself or others in social media. Perhaps I'm a little too sensitive lately, but I find it rather rude and hurtful. Especially when I thought those people were my friends. I also really, really hate it when I'm running on the treadmill - and someone will get on the one next to me (while there are still 8 other available ones), change the tv, turn off the fan, or close the window.
Mood.Completely overwhelmed. That's not a mood, I know. But it's how I feel. Ward's work schedule is horrible. Add that to his grueling marathon training which means we don't see him a lot and I am basically a single parent - running the kids all around to their events, working at the gym, and trying to get in my running. I try like hell to stay positive about it and be thankful that it's not worse. But sometimes it just beats me down.
