Thinking Out Loud Thursday : 03/20/2014

Each week Amanda [Running with Spoons] hosts Thinking Out Loud Thursday.  A chance for us to do some brain-dump blogging.  And to hang out with fun people.  And not feel so self conscious about the fact that you wore Christmas socks this week. Opps.


1 – I have still been all about some breakfast lately.

IMG_66072215844077Some mornings I wake up and jump right out of bed because I’m super excited to eat breakfast.  Seriously.  Breakfast. 

2 – This past weekend?  Hiking.

20140315_154642It was a beautiful hike.  But perhaps a bit of climbing for our first hike of the season.

Capture3 – Oh YEAH! I got a new toy! The Garmin Forerunner 220.  Ever since my FitBit ate a hole in my arm (Yep.  Gross) I’ve been wanting something to replace it.  I decided the Garmin would meet my needs for run-tracking much better than the fitbit did.  I’ve only gotten to use it twice (read – lots of ice outside), but so far it’s been awesome! Around here phone-gps-running-apps can’t keep signal because of the mountains – but I haven’t had any problems with the garmin! (even on the hike!).  I also love that it has an accompanying phone app (that is now out for android!), so I can look at my data before I’m even to my computer.  The other nice feature of the phone app is the ability to do a live track session – so Nathan can check on me / my progress during my runs – which makes everyone feel safer.  🙂

4 – Well, this happened.  20140319_085155I have – seriously – never played softball in my life.  This should be majorly interesting.  They’ve promised me : 1 – no one will laugh at me. and 2 – I can just stand in the outfield and duck when the ball comes.  Oh it’s going to be a fun spring 🙂

5 – Dear The Big Bang Theory.  Where have you been my whole life?  A friend just gave us all of the seasons on DVD and we’ve been blowing through them.  The ‘play all’ button on this series is dangerous.

6 – Also sucking time lately is Lie To Me, courtesy of Netflix.  It’s got me trying to read other people’s micro-expressions.  Turns out I may (not) be a genius on them.  Dang – so much for that career.

7 – Speaking of things I’ve become obsessed with this week.  Mangoes?  You sure came out of the woodwork.  As you saw yesterday in WIAW, I bought some last week – but hadn’t eaten them.  This week?  Uhm.  It’s all I can do.  I even ate one instead of in addition to a chocolate chip cookie for dessert on Wednesday.  Seriously Mangoes?!  I blame it on the lack of sunshine.

8 – Obsession level extreme – the Instant Pot.  I’ve actually had a few days break in using it – because we had a guest in town and have been playing-tourist, but I assure you – it will crank up the food-factory here again soon.

9 – Tomorrow [Well – today – when you’re reading this – Thursday] I have to have my follow-up-eye-test-because-my-left-eye-is-apparently-wanting-a-career-change-to-something-other-than-a-stellar-eye.  Excitement level?  Zero.

10 – Since I’m apparently out of pictures to accommodate my random trail of sleepy thoughts, and the use of spell check is becoming basically essential for the forming of words – I will say goodbye 🙂

We should be friends! Find me on Twitter and Facebook

  1. I’m pretty sure that breakfast is the only reason I get out of bed in the morning too. Well, breakfast and coffee. And good luck with the eye doctor! I had to go in last week and always find it super annoying… And it doesn’t help that I’, basically blind for a good 20 minutes after from all the bright lights he shines in my eyes.
