Let's do a quick catch-up about what I've been to lately:
-I completed my last long run in training for the Daytona Beach Half and the Princess Half last Sunday. I can't believe the DB half is only 7 days away! I did 10 miles, which included running a large bridge twice and running on the beach.
-I had a pretty stressful few days at work between meeting with a group of my teachers with the district math specialist, having my evaluation done, and dealing with some issues that came up. Plus, I was only in at my schools for three days this week! More on that later.
-I got to meet my friend Ashley's baby! I took her and her husband dinner and cookies, and I spent some time catching up with her and holding little Kourtney. Everyone's doing well, and I'm so happy for their family!
-Wednesday's Bible study and discussion helped me realize something that I need to work on. I've been in a little bit of a funk, and I realized that doing things for myself all the time doesn't really satisfy me in the long run. I need to get back to serving others like I did all throughout middle and high school! I feel like that's what God was saying to me, and I've gotten further confirmation of that through this week's Bible study homework.
-Thursday and Friday were spent attending two different trainings. I really enjoy learning, and both of these sessions taught me some things I can use right away with my teachers. I'm really excited about that!
-I tried the new Quest bar on Friday.
If you haven't yet, you need to! Not only do I love all things cookies 'n cream, but this Quest bar doesn't taste like a protein bar AT ALL.
|That's my "these are delicious" face|
-I'm pumped for November because Joe and I just booked a TRIP TO DUBAI!!!! We found a great Groupon deal and knew we couldn't pass it up. I'm so, so excited! Time to finally change my name on my passport :)
Sunday-10 mile run
Saturday-BodyPUMP class in the morning
Sunday-2 mile walk on the beach with Joe
Ok, I think that's all that I need to catch y'all up on. I'm most definitely going to post more this week, including the recipe for the quinoa pizza bites I made for the Super Bowl and a post about my thoughts on hot yoga. Hopefully there will be more posts than that, though!
Question for you: What's life been like for you lately? Got any exciting vacations coming up?
