Lately

What's been going on lately. | happyfitmama.com

It’s time for my monthly Lately.

Lately…I’ve been really enjoying running. Like really enjoying. I don’t know if it’s because I let myself rest for a week when my back flared up or because I’m feeling more aligned, but I’ve been running by feel and have been quite surprised with my paces when I scroll through the data at the end of the run. That’s probably also why I have race fever. When I feel good, I want to run the world!

Lately…I’ve been feeling ‘meh’ about yoga. I love my usual Sunday class with Elizabeth because she mixes it up and keeps it interesting each week. She also started to play around with music in class which makes it fun. Last week was Classic Rock Sunday. Have you ever done yoga to Judas Priest, Billy Joel or Motley Crue? Me neither. Who knew it could be a good mix? I’m ready for a new schedule change in June that will hopefully have one of my favorite teachers back from maternity leave.

Lately…Speaking of yoga, I’m attending Brews and Balance outdoor yoga this weekend. It’s a yoga class at a park followed by beer, although I think it would be much more interesting to drink BEFORE class. I can just see my yoga pics plastered all over Instagram. Oh that would be dangerous!

Lately…I’m flipping excited for an off road adventure with this girl over the weekend.

Lately…I read an actual book. And it wasn’t about running. I’m quite embarrassed to admit that it’s been months since I picked up a book. I remembered hearing about “When Breath Becomes Air” a few months ago when it was released and wanted to read it. It was a good read but terribly sad. I feel like I need an uplifting, lighthearted read now. Any suggestions?

Lately…Anyone else floored that Nashville got cancelled? I know it’s been kind of cheesy and not the greatest this season but I was still watching. Sometimes cheesy is good!

Lately…Happy Anniversary to Ron and I! 14 years ago we said I DO. I think I share this pic on the blog every year because 14 years ago, all we got for wedding pics were the real deal. So you get a picture of a picture! We had our celebration over the weekend with dinner out, just the two of us. It’s hard to imagine what our lives were like 14 years ago. We were just babies. And Ron had pierced ears. So weird!

Thanks for letting me do some Thinking Out Loud.

What’s going on in your life lately?

If you are married, how long have you been together?

  1. ahhhhh Ive wanted to read WHEN BREATH BECOMES AIR but avoided it for that very reason!!!
    Although you have the right idea with a fluff palate cleanser and perhaps THATS what I need to find before I start?
    I cant think of the author (ELIN SOMETHING) but The Rumor was superveryreallytrashy πŸ™‚
    You shall enjoy…

  2. Lately….I don’t want to bring anyone down, but boy did life throw me a curve ball while I was still riding the high from Big Sur! A 16 year old boy with a badly fractured tibia and all that goes along with that…I’m really digging deep these days to hold it together. But that’s what we do, right?

    And there is that new cute puppy that we got…

  3. Happy Anniversary! I can totally relate to having not read a book in a while…that one sounds interesting, might need to pick it up and maybe even read it πŸ˜›

  4. I love reading and do every night, but i was totally in a must read books about running or things I write about mode forever and lately I’ve just been enjoying good old fashion for fun books…it’s awesome!

  5. Congrats on your anniversary!! What a great couple! We will be celebrating 24 years together in September. That seems so weird to say – time just flies! Love the yoga and beer idea. πŸ™‚
    Can’t say I’ve read any books lately. Although I am trying to make it a point to read about my new training plan – Hansons. But, I have a new coach for this training cycle so I’m just relying on him to make the right choices for me! haha
    Love your pictures! What app do you use for a filter on them? They are just incredible!

  6. We are celebrating 14 years in October and looking at our wedding photos is so strange – like who are these little children?? ha ha. My completely grey husband even has dark hair in them.

    I love that you’ve been running by feel and been happily surprised by the paces. It’s such a confidence boost when that happens. We have to meet up sometime soon now we’re practically neighbors. πŸ™‚

  7. Bummed about Nashville.
    Married 17 years.

    Just got back from a week in Florida withmy girlfriends.

    Half marathon this Sunday – it’ll be hot and I haven’t trained for it.
