Currently November 2015
It’s been a long, hot minute since I’ve linked up with Farley over at [Oh Boy 4th Grade] for a currently post. I’m feeling especially productive today, and it’s rainy – so why not join in on the fun?
Listening: I’ll admit that I’m a sucker from QVC during the holidays. I usually start tuning in around October and can’t seem to turn it off until after Christmas. I don’t buy often, but sometimes that perfect gift idea that you haven’t thought of pops up! Don’t judge me!
Loving: Today the mister and I ran our first 5K race. So proud to say I finished in under 24 minutes, finished 4th in my age group, and finished 33rd out of 243 overall. The competitiveness in me is ready to take a medal next time!
Thinking: As I said, I feel super productive today which hasn’t happened for awhile. My brain is brimming with things I want to get done for school this week, for upcoming TPT products, and just some time to relax!
Wanting: Now that I’ve gotten into running (and think I may want to try a triathlon in the future), I want an awesome running/cycling watch. I haven’t had great luck with the Jawbone fitness trackers – 2 have broken on me. So I’m currently looking at the Garmin Vivoactive Black . It happens to be on sale right now, so it just may happen!
Needing: My goal this year was to stay focused. I think that overall looking back I’ve done a fairly good job, with dips here and there. I’m hoping to finish the year off strong!
Yummy: It’s not a recipe, but it’s November 1st so cue the Starbucks’ holiday drinks! We’re indulging after our 5K today with a Skinny Peppermint Mocha Latte. AND a grande is only 160 calories!
Head over to Farley’s blog to see other currently posts! Happy November!
