I tried so hard.
I said “I’m going to skip this week. I need a break. I have nothing to say.”
And then I remembered that I actually consider you all my friends and you don’t just “take a week off” from friends, even when you don’t think you’ve done anything particularly interesting recently. Friends in real life are more than happy to sit on the couch and watch shitty Netflix movies with you and not try to fill the silence. I think I just forgot that friends in bloggerland aren’t high maintenance either. So here I am.
Just a few random things because it’s Tuesday and I know there’s probably some kind of formula I’m supposed to follow but I’m feeling sassy.
I played this song 400 times yesterday. I’m really glad that people on the CTA or the street can’t tell what song you’re listening to because I had it on repeat ALL DAY. I thought I had my Spotify on private so that I could avoid that embarrassment as well, but surprise surprise that didn’t work out so I’m hoping none of my friends care enough about me that they’ll have noticed that in their newsfeed. Regardless, Tom Hanks is an adorable human. And Carly Rae Jepsen knows how to write a single.
It hovered around 50 degrees yesterday for the first time in god knows how long. I went to Shred415 for a lululemon community workout but the second I got home I changed into my running clothes and jogged around the neighborhood. I never thought I’d be saying that Wrigley Field was my neighborhood. How cool is that?
I walked everywhere yesterday in a long sleeve shirt and vest and it was glorious. I’m also fortunate enough that my school for Girls On The Run in withing walking distance so yesterday afternoon I headed over there to meet my girls!
As you can imagine, nothing went according to plan, the girls were rambunctious, and we didn’t get to half of what we were supposed to get done. But it was FUN. And my assistant coach and I agreed that that’s the most important thing. The girls ran close to two miles on their first day! I still remember completing an 11 minute mile in 8th grade and feeling like I’d run a marathon. Childhood obesity, who?
This weekend is St. Patrick’s Day. I’m neither Irish nor a huge fan of binge drinking so I don’t care that much, but it’s just another excuse to drink mimosas at 9am on a weekend so I plan on celebrating.
Oh, and I made these chicken enchiladas last night and they rocked my world. So maybe try ’em sometime. I considered doing Whole30 for half an hour but realized that I’m not yet committed to giving up cheese. This girl has no willpower.
- Favorite Tom Hanks movie — GO!
- If you’ve done Whole30, what was the hardest thing to give up? If you haven’t, what WOULD be the hardest?
