Hiya there!! Well it is that time again…summer LIST time! And since the this lovely season has arrived I thought I’d share the things I’m loving right now. I am so looking forward to the sunshine, weekends filled with great friends – pool parties and good vibes overall. All about it.
Things I’m currently…
Eating: All of the sushi rolls. Actually my most fave sushi as of late is the spicy yellowtail. I am actually obsessed with this place close to my job so “sushi Mondays” is quickly becoming a thing. Best way to unwind from the workday.
Drinking: Massive jugs of water…unsweetened tea…sauv blanc or a crisp white wine for nights on the patio.
Practicing: Always practicing staying in the present. I’m so used to having to be prepared for my next move (I blame teaching fitness classes at the gym for this) So being present sometimes is not very easy for me. I work at it everyday.
Mastering: Turning my MIND off at night. I’ve just discovered the Headspace app. I also love YouTube videos that have restorative yoga and calming things like that before bed. And for me NO TV and no lights on at bed! I don’t even know how people sleep with the TV on. Ha.
Learning: To be okay with not taking on too much. Right now I’m only teaching two classes at the gym during the work week (after my 9-5) and seriously this schedule for me could not be more perfect. All about that BALANCE, baby.
Trying: To laugh at myself more. Or to just laugh more in general.
Playing: …with my fun running friends!! Seriously y’all I have the most amazing runner friends. They are all THE MOST fun. We went floating on the river this past weekend and had an absolute blast. Then this weekend is RUN MY ‘HOOD and more pool party fun. Love.
Finishing: …my exploration of all of the fun cultural things to do in DFW. I am definitely an art museum lover and so many good ones are popping up around here. Must hit up more this summer for sure.
Reading: The Andy Cohen Diaries. I actually keep meaning to finish this book and never do and now it’s collecting dust in my closet. Must get it out and go to the pool and dive in.
Remembering: To do some form of yoga daily. Actually my favorite yoga pose to do (that I try and do daily) is pigeon pose. So good for those tight runner’s hips.
Wearing: Always rompers…and jumpsuits. Goodness, I love me a sassy sexy jumpsuit when I go out on the town.
Cooking: Anything crisp and light. When I’m actually cooking – grilled or stir fry stuff is my jam.
Working: LOTS. This is the summer of working, truly. Getting my money up for some traveling this fall. My 10 year work anniversary (!) is in August. So, I’ve got 3 weeks of vacation coming my way. Hallelujah and praise Jesus for that.
Traveling: By foot. Doing some training for the Habanero 50k then my 100 miler after that in Louisiana. Trail running, Cajun style.
Wanting: Copious amount of poolside time, and ALL the bikinis.
What is on your summer list?
