Saturday Sixteen

Sixteen random thoughts on this lovely Saturday evening…

  1. It’s been forever since my last post! Sorry about that. Functional medicine aggravation + school stress = little blogging motivation. I’m over myself now. Hopefully 2-16 will catch you up on the last two weeks.
  2. I’m on Day 17 of the Runner’s World Run Streak! The challenge is to run at least a mile every day from Thanksgiving to New Years, or 39 days straight.
  3. I cancelled my gym membership. I cannot remember the last time I didn’t have a gym membership / treadmill option for running on super cold days. I only somewhat regret cancelling during the run streak…
  4. I cancelled the gym because I started crossfit! I tried out a bunch of gyms before committing, I’ll share the full story this week.
  5. My next functional medicine appointment is Monday with my nutritionist. I’m trying to walk in with absolutely zero expectations.
  6. Speaking of expectations, I still haven’t followed through with a single recommendation from my last functional medicine appointment. I still need to order the detox drugs in preparation for my heavy metal test, as well as treat my gut from the frequent heartburn issue. It has to happen this week for sure…
  7. I haven’t been to my Sunday morning vinyasa flow yoga class in two weeks, and literally cannot wait to go tomorrow. Cannot wait.
  8. Even though I haven’t done any of my life things (see above), I did absolutely crush it at work the last three days. I organized an event yesterday that my Principal referred to as our most successful event ever. So, winning.
  9. I am all about the countdowns. 10 school days until Christmas break! 20 days until Zack and I go on a cruise! Wahoo!
  10. I am obsessed with Dr. Mark Hyman’s new cookbook, The Eat Fat, Get Thin Cookbook. I’ve only made one recipe so far (sucked at meal prep this week…seems to be a theme), but it was awesome and I cannot wait to make more!
  11. I just caught up on This Is Us. Thanks for introducing me, Hungry Runner Girl. Lots and lots of tears. I’ve also fallen asleep every single night this week watching Chopped.
  12. Thrive Market stopped carrying Paleo Wraps. I do not know what to do with my life.
  13. I cannot stop eating nuts. Pistachios, cashews, almonds. I know how many I am supposed to have during the day, and yet I get home from work and immediately inhale nuts until I prepare something real to eat. It’s not a good habit…
  14. Speaking of poor habits, I’m also fairly confident that I’m not eating enough (hence the reliance on nuts). I’ll be discussing all of this with the nutritionist (See 5) but tentatively plan to track my macro targets again for a couple of weeks to see what my issue is.
  15. Last issue: Why is it that I am not drinking literally any water lately? I know I need to, and yet I don’t. I don’t drink anything else…it’s very bizarre. Add it to the list of life things to address!
  16. Going to try to make some form of hot chocolate tonight that is acceptable given my current diet. Don’t I have the best Saturday night plans??!?! =)
