I feel like it’s time
4 weeks left in 2023 – that doesn’t seem like it can be right, but it is. 3 weeks and 6 days, actually. (Is anyone else thrilled that 1/1 is a Monday? Seems so . . . appropriate!)
During those weeks I hope to:
- CELEBRATE. Josh’s birthday, Hanukkah, Genevieve’s birthday, New Years’ Eve — truly excited for each of these!
- RECOVER. Continue to slowly ramp up running (and including cross-training) in order to start my 2024 running year strong. I would love to do a 5K in January to test out my fitness in (hopefully) good weather and then the A1A half.
- TEST out some new routines for the new year. Love the idea of a test run.
- ENJOY moving into my new planners 🙂
- REST. I have no call this month, and Josh is off the next two weekends — that will be so nice. Soccer will be on hiatus starting December 15th until January. I am not running high mileage. I feel like this is such a natural chance to rest. Even with the above celebrations. We all need it.
With all of that in mind I think it’s time for another round of time tracking. I find this practice really useful once a season. I’m not sure I successfully followed through in the fall but I feel ready to give my time use some extra attention for the next week or so.
I read this over the weekend. Turns out if you are going to procrastinate getting to your book club pick, this was a good choice.
I am actually not entirely sure how I feel about this book, but I am glad to have read it and am VERY interested to discuss at book club! Magical realism aside, I really loved the author’s writing style so I will be looking forward to reading whatever she releases next.
(To me, this reminded me of Kevin Wilson’s Nothing to See Here – where a totally unfeasible version of reality is nonchalantly presented as plot device. I am not sure I love this. Yet I enjoyed both books!?)
Headspace . . .
Speaking of habits I am going to attempt 10 minutes of headspace before my afternoon patients start coming in. We will see if this turns into a head-on-desk mini-nap which is honestly okay too.
