First, let me just start off by saying that whatever this bug is…is no joke! I even took the extra step to get the flu shot this year and still somehow managed to catch whatever was going around our office last week. I’ve been spending much more time in bed than I’d prefer, and subsequently, I am going CRAZY. Having a sick day is always nice for about 7 minutes, when I think “oh, it’ll be nice to get some rest, my body needs it,”…and then I start to lose it. Thank goodness for the blog world to give my brain some sort of activity to do.
It’s been a little while since I participated in the Currently series…so here goes!
Currently: December 2017
LOVING… all kinds of soup! The “colder” (i.e., 60 degrees) weather in San Diego has had me craving soups and stews over the past few weeks. I’m really loving dipping sourdough bread in tomato soup and have had it at least once a day over the past week. Is too much soup a thing? Comfort food is my jam these days!
CRAVING… salty foods. Pretzels, chips, you name it! Trying my hardest to resist. One of my favorite snacks that I have to try so hard not to buy every week is this mix from Trader Joe’s.
DRINKING…a TON of water (trying to kick out this sickness with extra fluids) with slices of lime from our friend’s lime trees. Perks of California living – free limes, lemons, oranges, and grapefruit year round! 🙂
MISSING…our families, of course! We definitely missed out on being with them this Christmas.
COOKING…some gluten-free penne + vegan “meat”balls for dinner!
LISTENING…to some of my favorite podcasts, including this recent episode of I’ll Have Another that I really enjoyed. Yay for a fellow East Coast transplant living in California. 🙂 And this girl is CRAZY fast. I’ve been trying to fill my commute + workouts with more podcasts for education and inspiration instead of just zoning out to music, lately. What podcasts do you enjoy?
DREAMING…of some big 2018 goals. I can’t wait to share them with you!
EXCITED FOR…NFL Playoffs, Chad’s birthday, our upcoming trip to San Francisco, and a half-marathon in two weeks!
WISHING…that this nasty bug or virus or whatever it is would just leave, already! I got things to do and miles to run!
PLANNING…races for 2018. So far, I have a few already on the books, but I’d love to do one race per month, even if it’s a tiny distance! They keep me so motivated. We’ll see. 🙂 What races do you have planned for 2018?
LOOKING FORWARD TO…one more long weekend and celebrating New Year’s Eve in San Diego!
Have a happy Thursday!
