Hey there! Guess what’s right around the corner? FRIDAY. All we have to do is power through today!
Allow me to help you kill some time with a new blog post :).
Currently I’m thinking about: making a commitment to wearing glasses.
I went to the eye doctor yesterday and my vision has gotten worse since my last visit. This is no big surprise since I was prescribed glasses years ago and I never wear them. My vision has started to bother me more and more though so I am making a commitment to wearing them.
I picked out some pretty Burberry frames. I figured if I was excited about the way the glasses look I would be more likely to wear them! They had to be sent out to be made, so I’ll be glasses-free for just five more days.
Currently I’m happy about: losing weight.
You may remember that I’ve been tested for a thyroid condition twice within the last 12 months because my weight kept creeping up despite my diet not changing that much. Both tests came back negative.
My doctor didn’t really give me a lot of great insight into what could be wrong which was really frustrating. She said my thyroid, cholesterol, blood pressure, etc. etc. etc. were all normal so she wasn’t worried. I didn’t like what was happening though, so I started working with a dietitian.
By eating more vegetables and protein and less carbs my weight has started dropping again. That did make me consider that while my diet didn’t change much, I did run a lot less last fall/winter because I was preoccupied with home renovations.
Working with a dietitian has been eye opening. There are so many things I eat that I never would consider a carb — like BBQ sauce and corn.
To be fair, I still eat some junk. Adam and I like to eat out on the weekends, and we usually order in at least one night a week. I also usually go out to lunch with coworkers once or twice a week.
That being said, my progress is slow it’s back to being steady and that’s fine with me since all of my other numbers are in line. I’ll never have a strict “diet” because I spent too many years living with an eating disorder to go down that route again. I’m happy with where I am at now.
Currently I’m listening to: the Missing Maura Murray podcast.
I haven’t listened to a podcast like this since season one of Serial a couple of years ago. I forgot how important it is to listen closely so you don’t miss any details. I need to re-listen to a couple of the episodes already haha!
Currently I’m loving: the song Barcelona from the new Ed Sheeran album.
Honestly, “loving” is probably not a strong enough word. I live for this song! If you’ve been listening to the album I would love to know what your favorite song is.
Adam doesn’t like Ed Sheeran, but he says the song Nancy Mulligan gets stuck in his head all the time:).
What’s your current favorite song?
Do you wear glasses or contract lenses?
