Taking Stock | May


mayWhat a crazy busy month! It’s been a whirlwind of trying to maintain my sanity – between starting school, getting my volunteer stuff going and training for the comp, it’s been hectic.

So here’s a look into my May, another chapter down in the book called 2015. Let me know what you think.

Making: it through each day, the best I can.

Cooking: chicken and veggie stir fry almost nightly and loving it!

Drinking: protein coffee, protein coffee and more protein coffee 😉

Reading: Smart Women by Judy Blume – almost done!

Wanting: to try out so many new recipes and old favorites

Looking: forward to our upcoming trips in June and July. Ready to start living normal again!

Playing: around with different hair color ideas for the fall, already!

Deciding: that there are a lot of weird people in the world. Then wondering if they think I’m the weird one. ??

Wishing: for our homemade mushroom/turkey/egg burger right about now.

Enjoying: every meal I can get!

Waiting: to start my volunteer work in July – scared but excited!

Liking: the support from friends right now!

Wondering: why this couple on House Hunters would have the wife and kids move to Panama (so their kids can experience culture for the hell of it), while the husband continues to work his dentistry practice in Florida and commutes to Panama every weekend. Yes, commute to Panama EVERY weekend. He’ll work Mon-Thurs in Florida, then fly to Panama and spend time with the family. Um… okay…. that really makes no sense.

Loving: getting our vacations planned and booked

Pondering: all the restaurants and “normal” activities we’re going to try after the competition. We’re ready to have a normal, fun summer and life again.

Considering: options for the TAM conference in July. We want to go “nerd out”!

Buying: way too much lately!

Watching: more home shows like Caribbean Life and Lakefront House Hunt

Hoping: that I kick some ass at the competition!

Marveling: at the changes in my body this month.

Cringing: at this stupid cold

Needing: a massage!

Questioning: why I decided to do this competition 😉 LOL

Smelling: lots of rain this month

Wearing: sandals and my new sleeveless tops

Following: lots of new blogging friends this month, loving it!

Noticing: the grass getting greener, leaves in full bloom, and a change in the air lately

Knowing: that competition prep is almost over. Yay!

Thinking: that way too many people at Walmart have just given up in life

Admiring: the dedication and hard work that me and the hubs have been going through lately.

Sorting: out mixed feelings on a friendship

Getting: excited to buy a patio set so we can enjoy some evenings in the back yard

Bookmarking: some new books I “want to read” on GoodReads

Coveting: some new sandals and an over body purse

Disliking: doing this much cardio. Ugh!

Opening: box after box of protein powder (we’re obsessed with new flavors!)

Giggling: over little inside jokes with the hubs 🙂

Feeling: exhausted

Snacking: on protein pudding

Wishing: for some normalcy soon!

Helping: the less fortunate by donating a huge box of clothes to the MS foundation.

Hearing: lots of thunder and rain this month!

    • Agreed! One thing I love about these blogs are the views into different ways of life and interests. Protein coffee is really just regular coffee with a little bit of protein powder mixed in. I have to put sucralose or splenda and protein powder in my coffee or it tastes terrible!

      • It should be! 🙂 We just get creative with our protein powders until we find stuff we enjoy. Like cookies and shakes made with protein powder and other healthier ingredients. The more we have those, the less I crave the unhealthy versions.
