Seriously guys, it's been boring around here. I've been going to work and the gym and crashing (add a little drinking in there too). School has been bombarding me with meetings and new students amongst everything else. I've been obsessing about next month's budget (which is depressingly slim with my new loan payments kicking in). This is all boring though. To bring my spirits up, here are a few things I've been loving lately.
Yoga - My goal was to go to the 7:30 beginner yoga class at the gym every Monday. Since I had MLK day off, I switched to the daytime gentle yoga class. I'm loving going to yoga regularly. I tried out a "regular" yoga class on Saturday, and it was crazy tough for me. I'm going to stick to beginner and gentle yogas for a bit until I increase my skills. It has been really relaxing, and I love that I feel sore the next day!
Lipstick - I mentioned earlier this month that I was interested in trying lipstick. You all gave me some great recommendations and encouragement, so I decided to go for it. I ultimately got an orangey-coral color (which I think will be more suited for spring or summer when I am not quite so pale) and took Stephanie's recommendation for Covergirl's Spellbound (which is a fushia). I was pretty nervous about it, but lipstick definitely makes me feel more grown up and pretty.
Vegetarianism + other related ventures - While I still don't love cooking (nor have I been doing a great deal of it), I love finding new and awesome vegetarian recipes. I've discovered the awesomeness of overnight oats and plan to post on that soon. My Pinterest boards are bombarded with vegetarian/pescatarian recipes that I'm vying to use. D has me trying a juice cleanse this week, so I'll let you know how that goes (or doesn't go...I'm scared to death of three days without coffee + tackling a new student and meeting at school). Overall, I feel much better with myself when I'm not eating meat.
