Hi! Happy Thursday.
Want to grab a coffee/spark/tea/water/pop/margarita?
If we were having a date, I’d tell you all about how life is going right now. . .
Work is going great.
I finally finished with orientation! I started seeing patients on Tuesday. The process is a little different at the new clinic, but medicine is still medicine. It’s nice to be back to doing what I love. And everyone is SO nice! I share my office with one other doctor and we get along really well.
Living apart is going as good as I could have hoped. Luke is surviving.
He is doing better than just surviving. He is doing really good with Dad during the week. And puts up with extra Mom snuggles and kisses during the weekend. He is still 2 (almost 3 in April) and is really really good at throwing fits, being stubborn and pushing boundaries. Good thing he is so cute. We chat every night at bedtime with Face time and talk on the phone in the morning when he is in the car on the way to school. And the end is in sight. We found a great daycare for Luke. He will be starting just after his 3rd birthday in April.
I am loving cross fit.
Trying something new was a great decision after moving to a new place. It is a great distraction. Something to do after work so I don’t just go home and miss Scott and Luke. . . Everyone at FitELITE has been super nice. And it’s just fun!
I have officially been hired at a new gym for BODYPUMP.
They don’t have any classes open right now, but I am on the sub list. And I subbed my first class last night – it went really really well! I have been trying to get to all the classes to introduce myself to everyone. I have been co-teaching a few classes to try to build my pump street cred = i.e. so the instructors know that I know what I am doing and I am a good BP instructor! I am also excited to check out some new classes – BODY ATTACK and RIPPED!
I am really enjoying the new town. I went to undergrad at UWEC, so some things are the same and some things are different. I mostly know my way around town and haven’t gotten lost (yet!). I really really like being closer to my sisters. Hanging out watching The Bachelor and making dinner for each other = awesomesauce. Thankfully the pups are ok snuggling together on the couch. . .
And the Whole30. I am sure you want to know how that’s going. . . it’s almost done. I like it and will probably continue an 80/20 plan after I am done. I haven’t decided if the 80% will be Whole30 or more clean eating. . . honestly, I haven’t missed grains as much as I thought I would. .. every once in a while, I want some rice – like from Chipotle, or a big plate of pasta. . . but not very often. Roasted potatoes and sweet potatoes have been my favorite things lately. Weekends have been SUPER hard. Like, whoa, SO hard. That’s usually when we eat dessert and I missed it. A LOT. But I survived. And I still feel really good. I’ve been able to kill it in WODs, my clothes fit good and my energy level and sleep are still going strong.
And finally – a HUGE HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my little sister Laura!
Whoa. That’s a lot of life going on right now. But enough about me – what’s new with you?
Linking up with Amanda today for Thinking Out Loud!
