1- OMG how is it March? I can’t be the only one who turned the page in my planner and literally gasped. Didn’t 2019 just start? Didn’t February just start?
Apparently not. We are 16% of the way through already.
The month passed by in a blur of activity. (There were only a few afternoons home alone with 3 kids that seemed to last an eternity!). I am most happy about 3 things:
a) Figuring out my new work plan, going forward
b) Starting at a new gym (Ellen’s Ultimate) and getting into group workouts (I’ve only gone 3x so far, but I am sold)
c) Executing C’s birthday party successfully and making him happy
2- Books read in Feb. This is not a long list, but I thoroughly enjoyed both!
a) Bad Blood, by John Carreyrou. OMG you guys. I’ve mentioned this so many times, but this journalistic account of the Theranos scandal is just such a fascinating story. It made me think a lot about leadership and integrity and pseudoscience and more. I devoured this book (purchased on Kindle and read on my phone).
b) Educated, by Tara Westover. Also nonfiction, but also completely gripping. Both books had a similar theme of powerful leaders spewing complete falsehoods and hurting others along the way.
3- BLACK PANTS & SUPERFICIAL THINGS UPDATE. I am wearing my new black pants a lot! Apparently they were the missing element to my work uniform. I am rotating the J Crew, Banana, and Everlane pairs. I received my Theory refund promptly (thank you Theory).
With my refund windfall back in my allowance bucket, I ordered a new Trunk Club shipment. So watch for a review next week 🙂
4- Workout report. As I mentioned above, I started at a new gym. I have also been continuing to track running & workouts on Strava consistently and like being able to review the data! Feb included 22 workouts over 28 days, including 11 runs, 3 Ultimate (gym/circuit/weights) workouts, and 8 Beachbody sessions. I am feeling a bit faster and stronger. Yay!
5- I’m really excited for this month! We have multiple trips planned (including the much-awaited Disney Cruise!), Josh and I are taking call simultaneously (so no solo-parenting weekends, though I honestly didn’t mind the last one), and I feel like we are settling into our new home/location. The big fat cherry on top would be if we sold our Miami Beach house . . . guess we will see.
Happy Friday, everyone!
