So I found this survey on Courtney’s blog, Sweet Tooth Sweet Life (you should check her out!) and thought it sounded fun so here’s my take on it. Hope you enjoy what I’ve been doing/lovin/makin/etc as of late.
Lately I’ve Been…
Making: Everything grilled! I have mentioned to you have obsessed I am with grilling all the things from fish to kebabs to kabocha. Oh summer how I love thee and how I love my Dad’s BBQ.
Cooking: Hmmm, I tend to stick to my favourites, but since summer, halibut has been a go to. Steaks specifically. Oh I have one you may be new to, on zee grilled lately has been Japanese purple sweet taters. They have a less sweet taste, white flesh and purple skin. They are my favourite type of sweet potato (and make me less orange LOL) next to legit purple ones. If you haven’t tried a purple sweet potato but see them NAB THEM! They are so good!
Drinking: Tea. Yes I still drink my hot tea in the summa. I have no inclination to drink cold tea. Nope. Gimmie gimmie my Timmies.
Reading: Well this is half reading, half listening, but for the past few days I have been slowly working through my employee online training modules because guess who picked herself up some worky finally? Thanks to my amazing boss Mark at Glen Cairn for finding some work to me despite being fully stocked up on employees already I’m sure.
One other thing that I read the other day was this article…
I’m not against any dietary lifestyle, it was just funny.
Wanting: To go to the farmers market here in Georgetown since it opened up this past weekend. Unfortunately for me, I had to forgo the grande opening as I was off to the Toronto ProShow this Saturday. Fortunately for me though, my AMAZING MOM dragged herself out of her warm bed (she’s a sleeper let me tell you so this was a huge deal) to make t to the market before it closed at noon to get me my beloveds…
Looking: The continued rise in the temperatures! Weeooo summa baby 😀
Playing: Advice giver and listener. I have noticed that a lot of my friends have been coming to me lately to chat. Whether that be about fitness or health questions or just needing a listener or person to bounce thoughts off of. It makes be quite happy that they feel as though they can confide in me and are confident in my thoughts and advice.
Wasting: Basil. My Mom and I have managed to kill two basil plants…
Those things are finicky with their water intake I swear! 😦 So sad because it’s one of my favourite herbs. Have you tried it in salads or stir-fries? So good.
Wishing: I could figure out the emotional roller coaster that is the mind when it’s filled with conflicting feelings.
Enjoying: The sunshine and being able to relax and spend time with friends.
Waiting: The season premiere of Mistresses! OMG I love that show and can’t wait for it to come back. Pretty Little Liars is back this week too. Yay to having shows to watch again!
Liking: Pistachios. Don’t know where that came from, but I have been roasting and crumbling them into my pre-workout zoats for a nice crunch in place of my peanuts.
Wondering: What this summer has planned for me because I really have no idea. I’m short on money and back staying with my parents for the summer and so I really have not planned anything special.
Loving: Seeing my friends so much. It’s a simple thing, but it can easily be lost when you find yourself busy.
Also loving the fact that I got to meet quite an inspiring female figure (pun intended) yesterday…
Mrs. Nicole Wilkins herself was just casually taking snappsies and chatting with anyone who came up to her. She is so sweet and such an inspiration for a female who is strong both mentally and physically. You better believe I word vomited all over her once I she got chatting with me.
Hoping: The illness my Dad has been dealing with for the past 2 months will finally leave him alone. After a month they finally said that he had pneumonia (after not treating him for that until about 3 weeks in, thanks Doc) and although he is starting to feel better and back at work (he was on sick leave for almost a month it was so bad) he now has edema randomly in his legs and hands which is not a good sign.
Needing: To book a deep tissue massage and foam roll more often. I got my first ever myofacial release yesterday for free at the ProShow and the guy was actually cringing working on me….
Bad Trainer. I tell my clients to foam roll every time (the more often the better really!) to help release their muscles after training to keep them loose and elongated and here I am with quads so tight my masseuse squirms.
Good thing I bought meeself a foam roller yesterday at the expo..Now to put to good use. This is gunna hurt (Update, rolled today and I was sweating because it hurt so bad..ugh.)
Wearing: Skirts and dresses! I can actually wear them again. This is why I love summer. Every day I’m twirlin…
Life Twirls on? Housewife reference anyone?
…did I just loose some readers with that comment.
Following: Miss Taylor on Instagram. Great motivation for both outlooks on life and training. She gives great new exercises to try out. Check her out here!
Knowing: I’ve got it pretty good. I should have nothing to complain about.
Thinking: Just thinking in general. I’m an true over thinker at heart and when I have something I am trying to figure out in my mind, it takes up a lot of air time up there.
Feeling: Like a newb all over again. I’m exploring being back in the dating pool and feel like I’m old and rusty. Help me not be awkward and stiff!
Bookmarking: Cookies on Pinterest for my parents. They really loved these ones sans the shredded coconut. Also cool new inspirational videos on YouTube. This one was random, as I’m not really an avid CT Fletcher follower, but really left me thinking a bit.
Anywho friends, that’s the latest with this lil one and so I will bring this post to a close.I hope you enjoyed this cute lil survey.
