Hope this past week has been treating you kindly.
I have been busy training at my new job.
I've had a really AMAZING person training me, so I feel so happy in that regard.
However, I still have my brown paper bag on standby in case I have a meltdown.
I think I'm really going to like it there.
But, it's still a little nerve-wracking being the newbie.
At least my coworkers are the bomb.com and have made me feel so very welcome!
I am working with my dear friend Ellen again, who if you'll remember I blogged about her husband being sick in the hospital and her being super pregnant....
Well, this past week she had sweet Nora Kate.
We are so excited!
Mommy and baby are doing well.
Speaking of doing well...
I am trying hard to eat at least one salad per day.
Well, at least one per weekday.
So, I used this Pinterest idea!
And here's how mine turned out:
They've worked like a charm!
So good and so easy to reach for each day.
The set up was kind of a pain, but it took about 30 minutes to fix 5 salads.
Not too shabby.
You just have to chop up whatever veggies you need and voila!
Definitely going to try to keep this up.
Something I've not kept up with is....running.
I feel awful about it, too.
I could use the excuse that I've been trying to get adjusted to my new work schedule, but that doesn't matter.
I've just got to commit to doing better.
And I'm debating whether or not just to run 5ks and then run the St. Jude half again in December.
I wanted to run the Germantown Half...but honestly, I'm sort of scared to train on my own.
Running long runs on my own is lonely.
So, I dunno.
Either way I'm going to run a half this year.
I might run the Dash for Dad half on April 27.
I've just got to figure it out!
Either way I gotta keep running.
I'm also about to try out a new gym since I can't workout on campus anymore... :(
I've got a 2 week trial membership to DAC fitness in Laurelwood.
Does anyone know anything about that location?
It's just really close to my work and my home...sooooo we'll see.
How do y'all keep motivated??
Maybe I need to buy a swimsuit to keep me out there...
Hey, you can pick up one at Target now!
Ugh. Seriously??? It's still January Target. C'MONN.
So, I went to Old Navy tonight.
I seriously could have bought every single item in there right now.
Yes, some of it's boring.
But I love all the colors they are sporting!
I'm sort of obsessed with green lately.
Love it all.
And anything with polka dots gets my vote.
Speaking of love...
I loved when I was sporting an auburn hue on my head.
Annndd....I'm making an appointment to have my hair done (hopefully) next Friday.
Should I go back to auburn??
Or how about one of these reddish colors:
|This pretty dark Strawberry?|
|Or a a brighter auburn?|
Or should I be bold and try ombre??
One thing's for certain, I'm not losing any length.
I soooo want Kardashian-esque length hair.
Ugh. Gotta keep taking Biotin and pre-natal vitamins to get there.
Kim might be rethinking that hair length once baby Westkardashian is born!
What's going on with y'all?
Hey Laura at Walking in Memphis in High Heels...I promise to try to work on your Liebster Award challenge!
You are awesome for tagging me.
And friends, go visit her blog!
She is freaking adorable.
And I love supporting Memphis bloggers!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend friends!
Much love, :)
