FEELING | a little overwhelmed lately (aren’t we all?). The fires, floods, earthquakes, and hurricanes, the situation in Afghanistan, the Delta variant. It’s all a bit much right now. Don’t worry, I am okay, generally speaking, but does this year feel even harder than 2020, or is it just me?
EATING | oat crunch with strawberries (and soy milk). It tastes like a strawberry shortcake for breakfast. You should try it.
DRINKING | Kefir. Have you tried it? It’s basically “drinkable yogurt”, but healthier. It’s good for your gut and it tastes so refreshing.
READING | A Promised Land by Barack Obama and I finally finished it. Full review forthcoming, but guys, read this book. It’s long and information-dense and hard to get through, but such good writing and a worthwhile behind-the-scenes look at the presidency. I don’t know how Trump made it through.
(absolutely) LOVING | my new “toy”, aka the Peloton. If you follow me on Instagram, you know that after more than a year of using the app (with a non-Peloton bike), I finally pulled the trigger and invested in the real thing. It’s a nice distraction from all the madness in the world.
ENJOYED | my ‘staycation’ last week quite a bit, even though we didn’t really do anything or go anywhere. I wish we could have traveled, but it was definitely nice to wake up without an alarm and not think about work for a bit.
WEARING | workout clothes. All-day, every day. I basically work out, take a shower and get into the next set of workout clothes until the next workout. Haha. I’m exaggerating, maybe.
HOPING | for more “good air”-days. We had our fair share of bad air from the California fires already and every day where the sky is blue is a good day. Unfortunately, the fires are still not under control and one of the big ones here in Northern California, the Caldor Fire east of Sacramento, is heading towards Lake Tahoe and air quality there is hazardous right now.
FRUSTRATED BY | the conspiracy theorists, anti-vaxxers, and all the misinformation that is spread (mostly on social media) about the vaccines and their efficacy. We could be much further along if people would just trust the science. Freedom of speech does not mean you can dismiss science as a difference of opinion.
What is currently going on with you?
