Confession: I’m on the verge of killing my third basil plant, in a row. For three different reasons, these plants have not befriended me. There was almost a complete revival of this last one, and I had high hopes. But alas…
Realization: Green thumb? I do not have it.
Obsession: Friday mornings have become a double-date! Kate and I hit up the Sunrise 6 a.m. class, and stick around for the Power Hour Vinyasa Flow at 7. Laying in savasana in between (at the end of class #1) is such a tease, but the different styles between the two definitely keeps things interesting! My arms and abs are awake.
Want: Oh, the list is long! New running shoes, Nike Frees for walking around and having bright, obnoxious colors on my feet, a shopping spree at Crate & Barrel, and a round-trip ticket to NYC for the weekend.
Need: This weather to stick around! It is absolutely perfect outside these days, and I am in love. DC really knows how to turn on the Fall charm:
Up: My last long run, on the agenda next weekend. I have 22 miles to conquer, and I am ready to enter that run into the training log (i.e. have G get it for me) and get this taper thing going! Countdown to Marine Corps: 3 weeks.
Down: My attention span right now; I ordered a Grande iced coffee, during our post-yoga coffee stop. They gave me a Venti by accident, and went with it. Alright fine, but you do realize iced coffee is double-brewed, yes? That is a lot of iced caffeine!
In: A dinner party challenge has been opened up! Are you in?
I’m trying to decide who we should have over, for a Chef Heatherdinner. What should be on the menu? Maybe a meatless meal for a meat-lover? Maybe an easy breakfast-for-dinner? Maybe something our guest picks out from their favorite dishes to eat out?
There are tough decisions to be made here, and taste-buds to be satisfied!
Out: The open, free, intermittent uncommitted days of “funemployment”. These days are getting busy, and I love every minute of it.
Pick one of the above, and add your two cents to this list!
