AUGUST. The signifying end-of-summer month. I feel as though I’ve spent most of this summer indoors because it’s been so dang hot, but also because I’ve had a lot school work to do. Two 5 week classes – it’s been a doozy.
Planning: This week is my last week at my current job! I’ve been in this specific department for almost 2.5 years – while there are very few things I’ll miss, I am very excited for this new role of mine. I’ll be moving out of the cubicle farm (that I’ve never been out of before) & into a doctor’s office!
*I’m in my last week of my current semester & my final project for my Fundamentals of Speed Training class is to create an 8 week speed progression program for an athlete/sport of my choice. I chose a 100m sprinter (since I am most familiar with running) – this is NOT easy. This class has only been 5 weeks long (4 weeks so far), & every bit of information has been crammed into it. I’m going to essentially be spending every night this week trying to organize my resources & spitting out a 7-10 page paper with this 8 week training plan. YIKES. But, I’ll do it.
*The BF & I are also heading to Columbus for a mini getaway. He used to live in Columbus & he always raves about it. I did the Hot Chocolate 15k there & it was beautiful. I’m excited to drink/eat/sight-see my way through it!
Listening to: A lot of folksy music! At my new job, I won’t be able to listen to music all day (which is one of the things I’ll miss). I’ve also been listening to True Crime Garage on the regular.
Drinking: Fruit smoothies! I bought, for the first time ever, a pineapple at the grocery store. While it was kind of a chore to cut it up, nothing beats fresh pineapple. I threw in some strawberries & 1/2 a banana with it – plus some not-from-concentrate OJ with an ice cube… MMM. Absolutely delicious. I picked up fresh mangos this week so I’ll probably use some to put in a smoothie!
Watching: OZARK. My friend Tara told me she & her fiance started watching it & recommended it to us. The BF & I started watching it on Friday night & WE. ARE. HOOKED. He stayed up til 1am watching it while I went to bed, so he’s a little bit farther along than I am but OMG. Also, Jason Bateman is one of my favorite actors. 5 gold stars for him.
Eating: healthy-ish again! Fruits, lean meats, eggs… but, since I eat everything in moderation, I’m also eating burgers, french fries & ice cream =) and enjoying every minute of it.
Looking forward to: my new job & Columbus! Also really looking forward to finishing this current semester.
Loving: life, my friends, my BF, my family. ❤ In my fitness slump, my running friends came out of the wood work to help me. I am truly grateful. And my BF always knows how to put a smile on my face & knows how to get me laughing – and how could you not love that?
