It occurred to me the other day that I haven’t written a post about me per se in a very long time. So time for an update on the current happenings of moi.
Making: My nighttime smoothie. Well technically a protein shake. I drink one every morning and every night. I’ve been really trying to work on my health and fitness since the year began and this is just one of the things that became a part of my every day life. I literally ate my way through 2014 and packed on the pounds as a price for that. I am desperately trying to undo the damage.
Cooking: … very healthy meals. First of all pats self on back for actually cooking. I ate takeout for the majority of 2014. Not kidding. I’ve eliminated gluten from my life since I found out I have a gluten intolerance. Its tough and I may slip here and there (theres no way Ill never eat pizza again) but for the most part its gone. Some days I am all pumped and love it. And other days well … I feel for pizza.
Drinking: Lots of water … and if we’re being all technical, I’m drinking the protein shake I just made.

Reading: Im sure you’re expecting me to name a novel or something. Nope, my brain is currently fried and these have taken up occupation on my bed. They have been my nightly reads for a couple nights now. Sometimes you just need Cosmo.
Wanting: Certain things in my life to go my way. Or to just work out. Relationship things. Oye Vey. I’m so not where I expected to be at this stage in my life and these days its bothering me more and more #adultprobs
Looking: Online and in stores for a dress to wear to a wedding in April. Its fast approaching and I legit have nada to wear. Nothing.
Playing: Words with Friends with my sweet sister. Love her.
Wishing: I could vent and blog more about the relationship things I mentioned earlier. But I censor myself for fear of who is reading. Or will one day read. Also, after the mess of my last relationship that I thought would last for all eternity, that I spent the majority of my twenties nurturing only to have it fail, I have a genuine fear of speaking about relationships openly only to admit defeat soon after. Silly of me? Maybe. But the last one crushed me.
Writing: My Thesis. Oh how I wish I could sit right now and put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) and work on my novel, but my thesis is due in May and I have a demanding supervisor. Le sigh.
Enjoying: The little things in life that make me smile. Waking up to a sweet text, juicy apples, the sound of the rain on my roof, the birds nest that a mama bird built outside my back door, my plants, yoga and my new yoga mat.
Wondering: Where my hair tie is… random but Ive been looking for it for a hot minute. #reallife
Loving: My plants and how cute they look! And the fact that I have not killed them yet. This green one even grew since the last time I showed it!
Hoping: For things to get a LOT better this year and for my positive attitude to return. I’m in a slump these days and anyone who knows me will tell you I was a VERY confident and positive person growing up. Positive to a fault. Im hoping for some of that positivity to return. I wasn’t built to be a Debbie Downer. As Kristen pointed out, we have to be kind to ourselves and so I’m also hoping to do that this year.
Thinking: about going for a run … but its late at night and I don’t have a treadmill. If I lived in a bustling city, I would totally open my doors and hit the pavements right now. No joke.
Have a great Tuesday guys!!
