According to WordPress, I haven’t posted since April 22nd. It’s August 26th. What?! If I weren’t seeing it with my own eyes, I wouldn’t believe it. Maybe my eyes are lying. Four months? Really?!
Last time I dropped ’round these parts, I talked about yoga – trying to attend regularly, trying to have a healthy attitude around my own limitations, around challenging myself and pushing myself to stick with it and get better. I’m pretty pleased to report that it’s been going really well; in addition to 1-3 yoga classes per week, I also take barre, pilates and spin classes. The number on the scale hasn’t moved much, but that’s not the point, right? I’m way healthier and way stronger than I was a year ago… Even than I was four months ago. The Dude poked my stomach the other day (we’re children who like to irritate and annoy each other for fun), and said, “Whoa, you’ve got some abs, there!” WHY YES. WHY YES I DO THANK YOU FOR NOTICING.
Overall, this has been a pretty great summer. Lots of little trips, lots of enjoying the outdoors… Lots of smiling faces. And ice cream. Plenty of ice cream.
So while this is usually the time of year that I can’t wait for Autumn, I’m trying to pump the brakes a little bit and enjoy these final few days and weeks. I’m – of course – excited to up my latte and scarf game again this year, but I’m looking to glide rather than jump right in to the chillier weather. We’ll see if Mama Nature grants me this wish… I did have my first soy chai of the season this past weekend, though, so I’m prepared, no matter what. (Starbucks is apparently all it takes to be “prepared.” That’s probably not true, and probably something I should rethink… Like. Where are my boots, anyway..?)
The Dude and I have also spent the summer making some big, big plans – major relocation plans. So while I’m being a little bit stingy and grabby with the info at this point and keeping the details close, I see this blog getting a lot busier as I get used to a new city, a new job and a new home.
Positive vibes our way would not be rejected – maybe pray that my office-organizational skills kick in and help us through this next transition! (Just asking for the simple things, here, folks. Just asking for the simple things.)
