Hey guys! Nice to start out the week on a Tuesday, right? Although I trained a couple clients, it was limited to the morning, and had a great rest of the day including family, food, and Emack & Bolios.
To welcome the beginning of this short week, I thought I’d talk about things I’ve loving and doing lately – in two’s!
Two Books I’m Reading
After finishing Gone Girl as fast as I could, I quickly dove head first into the next book that sparked my interest. I was feeling like a beach read – something that wouldn’t require much brain power, nor would keep me up at night feeling on edge. So, I went for the ultimate fluffy, beach-reading author, Emily Giffin, and her new book, Where We Belong: so far so good.
Light, fluffy, and I wanna know what happens next all of the time. However, I kinda hate the main girl in the book so far. She irks me.
When I’m not reading that, I’m reading Nicholas Sparks’ A Bend in the Road:
Two beach reads at a time, I know. Maybe my next read will be disturbing…but probably not. I read a lot before bed and I just don’t like to be disturbed right before sleepy time, ya know? Anyway, A Bend in the Road is about a couple, falling in love, each with a past, and Miles’ past creeping back up on him in the backstory. Pretty good so far!
Two Foods I’m Eating
Uh, yeah. I finally found this stuff when I was up in Chicago for my girl, Destiny’s wedding. I grabbed two jars, knowing I’d love it from what several of you have told me. Guess what? You’re right! I love it. However, I love Justin’s maple flavor just as much. I think I’m in the minority here, but it’s true. Another true story? I called and had them hold two jars back for me a few days before, but then when we went there we were so rushed for time that I just grabbed two off the shelf. I felt bad, and hope they didn’t hold them for me for long, but I feel kinda better admitting this to you all.
My mom found this at her local Kroger, and bought some Oiko’s 1 1/2% (low fat) Greek yogurt. Despite it’s odd half-percentage, this.stuff.is.dreeaaammmmy, you guys. Dreamy. I am really hoping they start selling it in plain, because I just have a hard time eating flavored yogurt for the mere fact that it has just as much – if not more- sugar in it than my ice cream does. I currently eat their plain 0% organic, but would love to find it in the low-fat version. Regardless, this stuff is the shiz.
Two Things I’m Watching
Friday Night Lights:
Ashley convinced me to start watching this series, and so far, I really like it! Shane and I will go watch an episode or two every night before bed. Season 1 aired 5 years ago, so we have a nice long few seasons to go through, so we’ll have TV to watch for at least this week… haha
NOT Reality TV. OK fine…I made one exception (I know) – New Jersey Housewives:
I gave up reality TV for a while, but I just have to see the train wreck that is the NJ housewives. But all of the other ones – Kardashians, the other housewives, all Bravo and E and MTV shows and the like. I think it’ll make me a better person (ha.)
Two Songs I’m Listening (to)
I had the pleasure of making the playlist for the 4-hour trolley ride after Destiny and Steve’s wedding this weekend, and I actually had a lot of fun doing so. He likes country, and she likes rap. I like both, but this week I’m especially liking Pitbull, Back in Time:
And E-40, Tell me When to Go:
Hey, opposites attract, guys!
Two Links I’m Loving
Before I go! Two things:
- Yesterday was Labor Day, so if you were offline and missed yesterday’s Move it Monday post, go check it out for a jump rope & abs circuit workout video!
- I’m guest posting for Madeline while she’s with her family in Arizona this week after her father’s heart surgery. Head on over to her awesome blog and check it out
Have a great Tuesday, loves!
Your turn: What song are you listening to this week?
