It’s already almost a full week into August, and I still feel like the 4th of July happened yesterday. Where the heck did the time go?
I hope your month is off to a wonderful start. To all of my teacher friends: I hope you’re enjoying your last few, precious days of summer break. That school year always just sneaks right up on you, doesn’t it? Now that I’m no longer a teacher I don’t go into an August depression about having to go back to school- it was always so hard to start over from scratch again and again each year. (And this is why I was not in the right profession- I never got excited about going back to school!)
My August is shaping up nicely- I’m busy working at a job that I love, hanging out with great friends and making the most of the Colorado lifestyle each and every day. I’ve got a few fun things planned this month- so let’s get right to it, shall we?
Current books: NONE. I need to pick up something new- any suggestions? I’m not a fan of fiction and love memoirs and biographies (and anything that makes me laugh!). The only fiction book I do plan on reading is the one that my lifelong friend Kelly wrote, which launches at the end of the month!
If you see this book out- pick it up! Kelly is an amazingly talented writer and I’m positive that this book will not disappoint. (Expect a review coming later on!)
Current music: Still mostly Lithium on Sirius XM with some 90s pop thrown in. Right now I have this song stuck in my head (thanks to Lithium):
I loooooove that song!!
Current guilty pleasure: Princesses of Long Island, RHONJ, Bachelorette… why do these shows have to come to an end??
I buy the concentrate and mix it with this. YUM.
Current food: Mmmm…. strawberries….
Current favorite show: CURRENTLY it’s either RHONJ, The Bachelorette and Extreme Weightloss. I NEED FALL TV TO COME BACK!! (Where is Parenthood?!?) <—– I’m going with the exact same answer as last month- but I’m also going to add MOUNTAIN MEN.
Current wish list: A job teaching Spinning + Bodypump (I am still waiting to hear back from an audition from over 2 weeks ago- they just keep saying “more details soon…”)
Current needs: See above. I am going NUTS. Teaching is a huge part of who I am and I feel like my life is definitely missing that piece right now!
Current triumphs: Finishing LiveFit trainer, progressing preeeeetttttty well with my DietBet so far, making my jar of NuttZo last a full two weeks…
Current bane of my existence: Contact lenses. I’ve been wearing them for about 10 years now, but they have really started to bother me (perhaps it’s the dry air?). I need to start thinking about getting Lasik.
Current celebrity crush: Of course, you can predict that I’ll say Paul Rudd. As I say every month, he will always be #1. But I’m going to add this piece of eye candy to the list for today:
(That’s Chris Hemsworth- in case you were wondering. I fell in love with him after watching Snow White and the Huntsman)
Current indulgence: KIND peanut butter granola (and beer).
Current blessing: Having a great job that I love and living in Colorado.
Current slang: This one’s for Tiffany: “Top that!”
Anyone else remember this movie???
Current outfit: A KIND tank top and black shorts (I just got back from work…).
Current excitement: Going white water rafting and hiking another 14er later this month!
Current link: YouTube (so that I could get the links to imbed the two videos shown above!)
