Thinking about: Thirty. I’m not even a year into my thirties, but life is so different. We’re at a stage where more friends are married or engaged than not & some are having babies. You’re more likely to find us at home playing a board game on a Friday night than out at the bar. Don’t get me wrong, we still go out a fair bit, but it’s so different. I find myself needing, & wanting, to prioritize workouts & eating healthy – something that’s always been important to me, but is even more so these days.
Drinking: Bone broth & coffee. I continue to be one of those “but first, coffee” people. I don’t see that changing anytime soon. I’ve also been having a cup of bone broth in the mornings from time to time. With the flu making the rounds at work, I figure it really can’t hurt to boost my immune system!
Reading: I read The Cuckoo’s Calling in Mexico & loved it. I’ve always been a fan of mysteries, & this one is full of suspense. I highly recommend it if you haven’t already read it. I’m now reading the second book, The Silkworm & I’m sure I’ll ready the third one afterwards too. Once again, I have NO CLUE who did it, but I love that about mysteries. I’m pretty sure Strike will figure it out before me, but I enjoy coming up with my own theories.
Let me know if you have any other reading suggestions – I’m always looking for new books!
Loving: The weather! We had such a mild winter, & this is one of the first times I can remember it feeling like spring at the beginning of spring. I’m sure we’ll get at least another dump or two of snow in the next couple months, but I’ll take this weather while it lasts.
I’ve had a free trial at Union Fitness this past month & I’ve really enjoyed putting some more variety into my workouts. I’ve tried hot yoga, barre, & some HIIT classes & they’ve all been really fun. I think I’m going to a morning TRX class tomorrow & I’d like to get in a few more yoga classes as well as maybe a spin one. I doubt their spin classes will compare to my beloved YYC Cycle, but they’ve got some combos that intrigue me (Spin + Abs?!).
Watching: A lot of Netflix. I’ve started House of Cards in the hopes that N will watch some while I’m at work next week. I’ve also been really enjoying Full House from time to time. I can’t believe the Danny was thirty in the first season. That just blows my mind! It’s like when I realized the cast of Friends was supposed to be twenty -five in the first season. So bizarre. One other show I’ve really enjoyed is Younger. Have you seen it? It’s such an interesting premise – I highly recommend it! & does anyone still watch Suits? The last season blew my mind!! It sounds a bit like I watch a lot of TV…haha
How about you? What have you been up to? This post was inspired by Sometimes Sweet. Find previous Currently posts here.
I totally agree with you on the thirties thing. I feel the effects of having even a couple drinks way more than I used to, and we definitely don’t go out nearly as much. I guess we’re growing up, whether we like it or not!
It’s weird eh. I’ve talked about it a lot with people – the shift, & whether it’s real or whether we’re socially conditioned to feel this way about turning thirty, especially as women. It’s interesting. I still really like going out & all that, but I’m much more aware of how much time I waste the next day if I do. & I really love having people over a lot more, especially as our house becomes homier.
