Dont worry, I just woke up (its def 9:45am). I had a hard time sleeping last night and frankly it was nice to sleep in. I wanted to catch you all up on some things going around here (that is if you still read…its been a boring corner Im sure)
Running: I ended up going to the doctor this week. Mainly I went to get a physical and have my vitamin D levels checked (did you know MOST, if not everyone, is vitamin D deficient?) I have to say I LOVE my new doctor. We talked about EVERYTHING that I have ever gone through (did you know I was misdiagnosed with cancer once? CANCER!) I talked to her about my leg and she suggested for now to take ibuprofen and place heat on the hurting area. I cant tell you how great my leg felt after doing it. I have been applying heat each night and its been heaven. (She also diagnosed me with rosacea which answers a lot questions about my face breakouts)
That being said, I havent been running, but I introduced a new machine into my life, the bike. I have only ever used the bike in spin class, so I was a complete newbie the first day. Yesterday I feel like I had the best workout in a long time.
But I havent been attending the gym as much as I would like for a few reasons:
Exhibit C: I eat too many carbs. I could not figure out why I have been so tired this week and so unmotivated and I realized I havent been eating my protein like I should be.
DIY: I have so many projects going on right now, I dont know where to start. I also have a few sitting in my picture folder just wanting to be written about. Nothing crazy, but easy for those who say they are crafty enough (which you know is totally false)
I am ALMOST complete with my chair makeover and I have a few other things I am working on….slowly. I hope next week I will have a few to show you.
Baking: With us trying to eat healthy around here, baking has taken a big back seat. I havent really had anyone to bake for either. I have a ton of recipes lined up and I have been pinning like crazy (are we Pinterest friends?)
Other: I started reading Hunger Games. I know some of you think its lame because everyone reads it, but my thinking is if its a good book, why not read it. I dont judge it because of the people that read it. So what if millions of teenage angsty kids are reading it.
Guess what we are going today??? Ring shopping!! We’ve been talking which explains the explosion on my wedding Pinterest board.
What is going on in your world? Anything planned for the weekend?
Have you read books that people scoff at? I read Twilight and loved every second. Cant say that about the movies though
Did you know you were going to be asked to get married? Did you pick out your ring? I actually told Matt I didnt want a ring (or something less real for now) so we could put the money toward a house/wedding (which will be a teeny tiny budget), but he INSISTS on getting a ring. Plus HE has been bringing up weddings, so I decided to just start getting ideas…I do not kid when I say tight budget
