Loving that I am only 6 pounds away from reaching my goal weight. SIX POUNDS. I can hardly believe it. At the beginning of the summer, I was 21 pounds away from my goal weight, and now I am only 6. I’m really happy with how far I’ve come and I’m hoping to lose these last few pounds by the end of summer (mid-Septemberish).
Loathing the fact that I have to take my car in to get a brake inspection this weekend. My brakes have been making a grinding noice recently, so my car will most likely need a brake job which will most likely cost around $200. Car problems are THE WORST.
Reading Leave Your Mark by Aliza Licht and loving it! I’m enjoying this book so much, I even plan to do a book review on the blog soon.
Listening to my literally crazy neighbor yell and make a scene at random times during the day. She has been doing this for a few months now and it’s getting out of control. Sometimes I wonder if anyone else in our complex has complained about her yet because she won’t stop being obnoxious. Our crazy neighbor is making me really look forward to moving to a new place in November.
Planning our trip to Carmel. It’s only 9 days away and I can’t wait! Our first real trip since January when we took our spontaneous weekend roadtrip. I found a bunch of dog-friendly restaurants that we can bring Otis to including one that has a food menu just for dogs! Otis is going to love Carmel. I think this will be a fun adventure for him to experience before he has his surgery on September 10th, which will leave him out of commission for 6-8 weeks.
Feeling really good about my half marathon training. I think adding cross training in and eating healthier this time around is helping me improve my run times for sure. I have 5 1/2 weeks until the race, so if I keep it up, I might be able to set a new PR. Just gotta make sure I don’t roll my ankle again like I did before my last half marathon!
Working on updating our emergency binder. I haven’t updated it since 2012-2013 so it’s way overdue. I figured since I have benefits now, this is a good time to update all our info. It makes me feel good knowing that we have an emergency binder in case something were to happen to me, Chris, or both of us, but it’s not as helpful if it’s not up-to-date!
Looking forward to another low key weekend. All I have planned is to take my car in for a brake inspection, take Otis to a pug meetup, and hang out by the pool. Gotta savor these last few weekends of summer!
