I love surveys. Do you? Emily at Sweets and Beets posted this survey the other day called, “Lately I’ve Been…” as a way to catch everybody up with what’s going on in her life right now. I love reading other people’s answers, because let’s face it, we’re all a bit “blogging” voyeuristic. Well, at least I am!
Also, it’s Thursday, and Amanda let’s us think out loud, so why not?
Making: connections and plans for building up my coaching business, Coached by Erin. I’ve already picked up some personal training clients and hoping that the efforts I’m currently making will pay off in a big way!
Cooking: Soups! I know, I know it’s summer, but in Glasgow it really doesn’t feel anything like it. I made a pretty kick ass mature cheddar and sweet potato soup the other day, if I may say so myself!
Drinking: Water and gingerbread tea. Like, bucket loads. I’ve been trying to abstain from alcohol and coffee this month, and besides the weekend at my in-law’s and a glass of red wine Monday night, I’ve not been too bothered.
Reading: The Survivors Club by Ben Sherwood. I’ve been reading this all month, because I have been having life ADHD. It’s a great book though, and if you’ve ever wondered how you would handle an emergency life and death situation, then this is the book for you!
Wanting: To have a gym somewhere in this city call me back about being a Spinning instructor. My goal is to at least be a sub at a gym by the end of the summer! #TotalWithdrawls
Wasting: My youth. There, I’ve said it. I need to do something carefree. Just, you know, not get deported.
Enjoying: Training people again, running in the mornings with my hubby, anything and everything with chickpeas, and living in Scotland!
Liking: Halt and Catch Fire — this show is REALLY good. I also really like the song, “The Breach” by Dustin Tebbutt.
Wondering: If I could become a vegan. I think I may do one of those challenges, because after watching the documentary Vegucated I was in tears and wanting to never eat an animal product again! Seriously, “Free Range” “Organic” and “Humane” are VERY subjective terms when it comes to the animal products we consume! Not to mention, our animal consumption is literally melting the atmosphere. :/
Loving: I will probably sound SUPER corny here (like, I don’t always?) — but I’m LOVING being married to a man who is as passionate about living a minimalist and healthy life with me. It’s so freeing to share your life/space/goals/future with a person who wants the same things you do, eats the foods you cook, and gets up rain or shine to run with you. #LOVE
Needing: To call members of my family and mail them items that I’ve been buying for them. And send something to my friend, Abby, who just had her baby early and could probably do with a nice baby gift while her son is still in the hospital.
Wearing: Too much. I wish it would be warm enough for a summer dress and open toe shoes. It’s SO cold in Glasgow. I’m used to hazy, warm New England/NYC summers, and the one I’m currently experiencing ain’t anything like that!
Noticing: I need to read more, and get a tan.
Knowing: You never know where you might end up in life, and that every time something bad happens — you can be sure that if you take that challenge and kick it’s ass, — better things will be on the horizon.
Thinking: I would like to go back to school for nursing or speech pathology at some point, but also that I want to have a baby soon.
Feeling: Very lucky and loved.
I’m linking up with Amanda at Running with Spoons for Thinking Out Loud!
