Is Thanksgiving really next week? It feels like fall just started, but it also feels like we just skipped over fall, especially since we experienced winter like temperatures for part of the week.
This past week has been super busy, and with so much going on, I wanted to share a couple of highlights from this past week (and one thing I’m looking forward to).
1. I’m officially back in half marathon training mode!
On Monday, I kicked off my Shamrock Half Marathon training. After a couple of weeks off from training, it feels good to be back in training again.
2. I’m slowly working on rediscovering my love for yoga.
As part of my FitFluential Ambassadorship, I’m participating in the #BalancedYou campaign with Gaiam TV and My Yoga Online. I’ll share more details about the campaign at a later date, but my participation in the campaign is giving me access to a variety of yoga videos, which is assisting me in rediscovering my love for yoga (which is also one of my goals for the month).
3. I foresee lots of Snow Days in the near future.
Our local NBC station shared the predicted snow totals for this coming winter. We used to live in the dark blue zone (18-25″), but now we live in the purple zone (25-50″). Anybody who knows the DC area well knows that DC does not know how to handle snow, especially large amounts of it. I’m definitely looking forward to having a handful of Snow Days this winter.
4. Thanksgiving is next week!
Not only am I looking forward to seeing my parents and sisters next week, but I’m also looking forward to a couple of days off from work. My body, mind, and soul needs a break from the alarm going off at 4:30 a.m.
5. Preston and I started dating five years ago this past Wednesday.
Its hard to believe that its been five years since Preston and I went on our first date, which included walking the monuments at night in DC. I’m so grateful that Preston suggested that we take a picture on our first date. Its a picture that I know I’ll continue to cherish for years to come.
QOTD: What is one highlight from your week?
