Thank you for finally arriving Friday!
Is it me or did this week seem to CRAWL to anyone else? Maybe what bewilders me so much more is that although I feel as I’ve had ample time to get certain tasks/projects done, I’ve done none of them. Maybe it’s because I’m a super procrastinator and just really like trashy TV.
Before I get into it, I just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who reached out with such kind words on Tuesday. I really appreciate all the support, and positive thoughts that are being sent my way. This is the reason I started my blog. The people and the community are unlike any other and I can’t thank you all enough for that!
First things first, I’m so excited to spend Saturday in the city doing super fun things. You heard that correctly. For someone who is NOT a city dweller, I have a few things on the agenda this weekend and I could not be more excited. First up is a birthday brunch for this lady. Caroline and I go all the way back to 4th grade, staying close through college and into our lovely “mid” 20s while she stayed in Dallas and I was back home in CT.
Thanks for being the best friend, a fabulous travel buddy, and for your outstanding cheerleading skills. Even though I had to make my own poster…. #NeverForget And if anyone is running NYC this year… you better believe she will be out there, cheering me on, with just as an obnoxious sign. Look out for it.
Afterwards we’re heading to my boyfriends fraternity brothers housewarming party. Back in my old stomping grounds of the UES. They have a fantastic outdoor, back patio, and I have a feeling things might get a bit rambunctious…. But I don’t know what would make me say that : )
As I said on Tuesday, I have not been feeling well. And although I proclaimed I would continue to work out, I physically haven’t been able to. And while it kills me inside and I feel so lazy, it’s what’s best. I did get out for a “run/walk” kinda thing on Thursday morning. I was hoping I would be up for my normal 5 mile loop, but two miles in I had to stop. So I ended up cutting it short, grabbed a Starbucks (convenient) and walked home. I ended up with a little over 3 miles. I honestly can’t tell you the last time I ran less than 5, but I’m okay with it. I was happy to get out, enjoy the fresh air, and have some sun on my face.
My favorite food this week has been smoothies! I’ve been making some banging concoctions thanks to some of Sara’s recipes, and have been enjoying them most mornings and evenings. My favorite so far: Ice (lots of it because then it’s almost like a frozen treat), half cup almond milk, 1 banana, and Vanilla Vega protein powder. I’ve been adding cinnamon and pumpkin spice just by sight (why measure when you can guess) and I SWEAR it tastes like Dunkaroo Frosting. If you don’t know what a Dunkaroo is then 1. we cannot be friends. Like actually. I’m not kidding. and 2. Do yourself and everyone you know a favor and go try them. Honestly, the best snack ever. #Childhood
The other night I was laying in bed and totally revamped my running playlist. I added some oldie but goodies, little RHCPs and Beyonce (hayyyy), but I find myself listening to Chief by Party Thieves and Take U There by Skrillex and Diplo featuring Kiesza. I will be the first to admit I listen to an interesting combination of music when I run, but I love that I never know what I’m going to get and it makes the time go by so quickly.
KUWTK is on their midseason break (sigh), but at least I have my trusty RHONY to get me through the week. RHO Orange County also started Sunday so my TV watching is not completely down the tubes. One of my most recent discoveries is Married at First Sight. Please tell me someone else out there watches this show. Because WE. NEED. TO. DISCUSS. I watch each episode with my mouth wide open.
So there you have it folks. Five things (maybe six? can’t count) that I am absolutely enamored with this week. No weekly workout recap Sunday because there is none. #LOL. Oh, I ran 8 miles on Monday. Done. Haha.
I hope you all have a great weekend and I will catch you all on Monday!
Please tell me your thoughts on Married at First Sight!? Does anyone watch this? Would you ever do this!?
Do you ever become sad when your favorite TV show goes on a mid season break? I think it’s almost pathetic how upset I get. I miss my shows… it’s the best way I know how to turn my brain off and tune out for the day!
How often do you revamp your workout tunes? I usually go through phases and will wait months to change things up…. Right around the time I know every single word to every single song….
