It's a new year, a new month and so here's a look at what I'm currently up to:
Thinking about: my mini-goals I made for January and how while I'm rocking some of them (meal-planning - still going strong!, read 3 books - almost there!, go snowshoeing - check!), I'm failing miserably at the go to bed by midnight one. And while I hate to use the word fail, I honestly cannot think of a better word to describe the situation. Because not only am I not making it to bed with the lights out before midnight, I'm not even close. For some reason, my bedtimes have been out of control this past month! We're talking 1am, sometimes 1:30am. And it's starting to take it's toll on me since I still have to get up in the morning with a toddler. I wouldn't call it insomnia, far from it, because it's not that I'm trying to fall asleep and can't, it's that I'm literally just not going to bed until after midnight because I'm not tired. Of course, come morning, I am, but in the evening, I feel like I could stay up all night. Sigh, what is wrong with me?!
Reading: I just finished Bird Box (scariest book EVER!) and I'm actually not sure which book to read next. I'm deciding between The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman, The Pact by Jodi Picoult, or The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty. Tell me which one I should read!
On the topic of reading, I've also been thinking about how I'd love to have a little on-line book club here. While I love reading, it's the most rewarding and enjoyable when you have someone (or people) to talk to about the book afterwards (or during even!). This is one of the things I like most about a book club. I can let you guys know a book I'm going to read in February at the end of this month, and then at the end of February I'll post a little review and we can discuss the book in the comments. We could also do a link up if people wanted to write their own post. I'm open to suggestions! Eventually, we could even vote on a book to read so that I'm not always the boss ;)
Listening to: So, I'm a HUGE Pitbull fan, like, his songs never get old for me and they are my go-to workout playlist songs. When I got my new vehicle, it came with a free 3-month subscription to Sirius radio and there's a Pitbull station! It's pretty much the only station I've been listening to this entire time, haha! This song is an oldie, but I just can't help but want to dance every time I hear it come on.
Watching: The Bachelor!! Ben is just adorable and the girls are as crazy (maybe even crazier?) as usual! I love that my husband is just as into this show as I am. It's too early to pick my top favourites, but so far I really like Caila, Amanda, and Lauren B. And I can't wait to see more crazy from Lace and Olivia!
Eating: I still have a long way to go with completely cleaning up my diet, but I'm happy to report that all of the cookies, sweets and chocolates that made it's way into the house over the Christmas holidays is almost all gone. I've been consistent with my meal planning since the beginning of the year, and that definitely is making a difference in eating healthier dinners and then healthier lunches since there's always leftovers for the next day. On the weekend, I whipped up a big batch of baked oatmeal which takes the guesswork out of breakfast and also ensures that I eat something nutritious and filling in the morning.
Wearing: At the moment I'm wearing one of my brand new Victoria's Secret bras that I talked about buying in this post and I'm not sure I ever want to wear another bra again! This thing is so comfortable! And what I love about their sports bras for maximum support is that they have built in cups so you're still left with so much shape, but tons of support. No more pancake boobs for me!
Looking forward to: Snowshoeing in the mountains next weekend with some good friends!
Your turn! Tell me:
Are you a morning person or a night owl?
Which book should I read next? The Light Between the Oceans, The Pact, or The Husband's Secret?
Would you be interested in joining me for an online book club? I promise it will be super casual, and you don't have to have a blog to participate!
