Living in this pair of Lucy Vital shorts. (I actually bought two.) I needed something new that a) made me feel sassy, and b) was great for going on walks or other exercise-related endeavors. The bonus? They make me feel a bit like a sexy 1950s housewife. Something about the cut and the fabric. And quite possibly the near Casper-like pallor of my legs.
Recovering from the emotional impact of seeing Inside Out. Yet again, Pixar hits it out of the park. I could probably write an entire post on how this affected me, but that would mean spoilers and I don’t want to spoil the magic of this film for anyone. Suffice to say: bring tissues and prepare for the ugly cry.
Working on creating a new, more productive schedule for my work days and recording it all in my Get To Work Book (sadly, they are now sold out.) Summer means no teen-aged boy to get up for school so that means I need to be taking advantage of those extra hours in the morning. Getting a workout of some kind in first thing is on the schedule every day. I have more to write about that in another post coming later this week. I need to be hammering out more work in the hours at hand. Scheduling will help.
Walking like a banshee. (Again, more on that in a post later this week.)
Abstaining from all that red wine I was planning on drinking this summer. As I review the choices that affect my overall health, right now a glass or two of wine is fine on the weekends but I can’t have a happy hour every day and think I’m going to shed any weight. Right now, from a health standpoint, I do need to bring that BMI down. It’s just another dose of sugar I need to watch.
Getting closer to the launch of the new CZ Classes. It’s just going to be a more functional page for my students. It won’t look all that different. Hoping that it launches by month’s end.
Enjoying how green my yard is and admiring all the work Dan puts into it.
Eating tacos a lot lately. My recipe is simple. A few pounds of grass fed beef, Penzey’s Taco Seasoning, served on lightly toasted white corn tortillas with the usual suspects of fixins: fresh guacamole (just lime juice, avocado and pepper), a little cheese (whatever’s in the fridge), cilantro and Costco salsa. It’s a quick dinner, everyone enjoys it, and you get some good protein without a ridiculous amount of calories. I could eat this three times a week.
Wearing my Fit Flops religiously this summer. No, I do not believe they will make my ass more shapely but I do believe that as a woman with Plantar Fasciitis in both heels, when I put my Fit Flops on, the pain goes away. Something about the thick, sturdy sole distributes the pressure and relief is mine. My sandal choices are pretty limited with that foot surgery I had a few summers back. Note to anyone who has impending foot surgery: sometimes it doesn’t quite do what you’d hoped.
Realizing that summer is flying by. Two more months and Aidan is off to college and Cole is starting his sophomore year of high school. Time is a bullet train, people.
What are you doing this month?
