Hello, March! Can I just say I’m glad February is over? Something about last month just didn’t click for me. It was a short weird month for lot of people, I think. I’m glad for a fresh start.
Reading // The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty. This has been on my list for ever. I actually bought this for myself almost a year ago, but then lent it to my mother-in-law. We love to exchange books but don’t see each other that often.
It’s SO addicting! I just picked it up two days ago and am already about 200 pages in. I’ll definitely be finishing it soon!
Loving // My workout plan and going to the gym daily. I never thought I would become a “gym goer.” I’ve always been such a huge fan of working out at home or just running.
I am about halfway through the whole LiveFit program and enjoying it so much. Since I really cleaned up my diet starting in Phase 2, I am feeling soooo good, focused, and full of energy. I’m totally in love with lifting heavy and hope to keep it up.
Not Loving // Suddenly being an insomniac? Claire has thankfully been sleeping really well lately, so I’m not waking up in the middle of the night for her anymore, but I’m having a hard time sleeping at night.
If I do wake up in the middle of the night, I am wide awake. I think maybe 9 months of lots of night wake ups conditioned me to become alert in the middle of the night a lot easier or something? It’s weird.
Craving // A good bath and bottle of wine. It’s been a while since I’ve had a real chill-out evening and it needs to happen soon. Some chocolate wouldn’t hurt either 😉
Putting off // Going through the more tedious items in my house before our move. We have a third bedroom that is a total junk room. I want to go through all of it but get so overwhelmed and don’t know where to start.
I know if my husband and I can tackle it together on the weekend, it’ll be no problem, but alone while watching Claire climb on everything – that’s a different story!
Wanting // To buy something really nice for myself for my birthday at the end of the month (but will most likely buy well before my birthday!). I always want like all the things, but some things I need are…
New gym shoes, a new workout outfit (or five?), some shorts since I have never had shorts I like or that fit right (recommendations?!), and a really good pair of sandals since all of mine have pretty much bit the dust. I can’t decide what I want to get though.
I was checking out these Birkenstocks for sandals.
But then I read some bad reviews about the strap between the toes, that it was painful so now I’m torn. To try or not to try?
Praying about // Needing more prayer time, actually. I just scoped about how I don’t think reading Jesus Calling was working out for me anymore as far as an inspirational devotional so I switched to an old Joyce Meyer one again in hopes to actually read it/feel inspired.
Also praying about…
- that we would sell some specific things we need to get rid of before our move
- that our move would go as smoothly as it can, even though I know it’ll be crazy
Happy about // Deciding on a workout plan to do after LiveFit trainer.
I will finish the plan a few weeks before we move, but then once we move, I won’t have access to a gym anymore. I could join a new gym after we move, but I want to wait until we (hopefully) buy a house to make sure the gym I join is actually near our home and not just where we’re staying at the time.
I was really bummed about this for a while, thinking “OMG how am I going to get a workout in?” (As if I have never worked out at home before?!?! Clearly, I am a true gym rat now) So I decided I’ll do Insanity. I think doing it again (this will be my 3rd time) will be perfect during our move because you don’t need any equipment and can do it anywhere. It’ll be bumping up the intensity to keep giving me results after LiveFit.
So now I have that to look forward to and I’m excited. I am a big “like to know what to expect” person and I know I can’t know what to expect with a lot of details of our move. I think having this to focus on during that transition will help me feel balanced and not so “out of control” since I’ll be working toward a goal.
Looking forward to // Your reaction to tomorrow’s post. Stayed tuned 😉
