Feeling comfortable. It's been a bit of a financial rollercoaster the last two months, KC switched jobs which - in his case - meant a month or two with no pay. He started his new job on Monday and so far loves it, which I am so freaking happy about. Anyway, I am not really a worrier when it comes to money because where we are at now is better than I ever was at my best on my own, you know? But KC freaks out if we hit even the smallest of bumps, which stresses me out. But he's done stressing, which means I can start relaxing.
Also feeling proud. I haven't shopped in 2 months, unless you count books which I don't so there.
Trying to get 10,000 steps per day. I suck at this! I do not get 10,000 steps unless I run, because I sit down all day. I have been trying to get up every hour and aiming for 10,000 every day for the month of August. It's silly, I know, but I will sit down for 3+ hours sometimes without getting up and that's just not good. So far so good, only 2 days in though haha.
Listening to the P&P soundtrack. I am terribly boring and predictable during the work week, I love that the P&P soundtrack is all instrumental, because I get distracted easily, but I also love that it makes me randomly think about P&P throughout the day. Don't judge.
my running. I have been coasting along and not really trying lately, but I am really trying to focus on speed work or tempo runs. Next half marathon is in 11 weeks, then another in 12 weeks and then I think the last one is 15 weeks away. So, coasting along will not help me. I have been running with my bestie every week no worries, but it is running on my own that needs work (like, actually doing it instead of being lazy and going to work instead. Who chooses work at 6am instead of the gym/running?).
Reading lots of netgalley books. I have really been trying to knock those out, or at least the archived ones, because it was giving me the heebie jeebies, my 'ratio' was not looking good. I also need to work on my kindle unlimited list, as I want to cancel it - but you lose the books when you cancel, so I need to read them first. The two (netgalley) books I am currently reading are The Invisible Library and Beauty & the Clockwork Beast and I hope to finish them before next Tuesday for Show Us Your Books!
Wishing I could figure out what is going on with my face. It's weird, you guys. I am having some sort of allergic reaction, and no, I have not done anything at all new, no new food, no new beauty products, no nothing. I can not figure out what the heck is going on, but it's all red and itchy and rough feeling. I am trying to wait it out, but I finally cracked yesterday and went to walgreens and asked the pharmacist for help. He told me to try some benadryl cream, and my skin is definitely less angry, I just want it to hurry up and get happy.
Watching the shannara chronicles. I just randomly decided to start it the other day when I couldn't be bothered even holding a book. It's okay. KC and I watched all of Stranger Things in one day the other week - we are not binge watchers, so that was odd. It was good, I thought. Different.
Eating tuna, corn and chickpeas.
Finally got my american driver's license (permit), huzzaaaah! Congrats to me. I have to wait 30 days and then do the driving test, but then I'll be good. The reason I finally did it is because mum is coming to the US in 32 days and we are renting a car.. which I need a license for (since my name has changed since my Australian license etc etc). So, talk about leaving it to the last minute!
You can't even really see what is going on with my face, but trust. It's crazy up close.
So, any tips for things I can put on my face to help it go back to normal?
