Reading: Moonlight Over Paris by Jennifer Robson. I read and enjoyed the other 2 books by this author so I think I will like this one, too! I've read some heavier books lately so am due for a lighter, fun read like this. Thanks to Mandy to gifting this to me for my birthday!
Loving: sweet potatoes. I never thought I'd say the word love and sweet potato in the same sentence! Since starting W30, sweet potatoes have become a staple of my diet as I have them every morning with a fried egg for breakfast. They are so tasty when prepared in a savory way.
Thinking: that I am due for a massage real soon!
Frustrated: with my body. Big time. My MRI showed that I have a labrel tear. Labrel tears are very common but the doctor decided to refer me to a surgeon because between the bone growth on my hip joint and my lack of response to PT, he thinks surgery might be necessary. Le sigh.
Feeling: kind of tired. The past month has been especially busy for me. I *think* April will be quieter. I'm due for a "shouldless" day but don't think I will be able to squeeze one into March so might have to do 2 in April!
Anticipating: our trip to San Francisco in late April! San Francisco is one of my favorite cities so I can't wait to explore it with Phil, plus it will be awesome to spend time with Kyria!
Watching: the newest season of House of Cards when I am with Phil, and getting close to finishing the 4th season of Gilmore Girls when I watch Netflix on my own.
Sad: that I won't be running Grandma's Marathon in June. Given the issues with my hip it's just completely out of the question. I'm less devastated about it than I thought I would be, mostly because I haven't invested any time in the training yet, but I'm still bummed that I won't get to experience that race, especially since marathon entry fees are not cheap!
Working: out quite a bit despite the issues with my hip. The doctor told me I can still be active as the damage has been done at this point. I have been doing lots of yoga and taking lots of long walks. My workouts look very different than they normally would (i.e. no running whatsoever) but at least I'm still able to remain active.
Grateful: for health insurance. You know, because of ALL of the doctor appointments I've had recently.
Listening: to the remake of "We Built This City" by Aron Wright and Jill Andrews. I fell in love with this song after hearing it during the savasana part of a yoga class I took last week.
Wishing: that spring would arrive for real. We had a taste of it earlier this month but in the last week we've had snow twice! It melted right away but I'm just ready for winter weather to be behind us!!
What are you reading, watching, and grateful for these days?
