Once again, I’m linking up with Amanda for Thinking Out Loud. If you don’t know how it works check out her first post. Basically, it’s a chance for you to get all your random thoughts out and then link up with others doing the same.
- This week has been a rollercoaster and I admit I’ve been pretty darn cranky. Liam has been with his dad all this week which has been a big change for me. Enjoying coffee before work, getting to work on time, taking a full lunch break, and a full evening to myself. I don’t think I’ve had this much kid-free time during the week since I returned to work. Thankfully my mood turned around today even though I still miss Liam like crazy.
- I’m officially a part of #SMBRD aka Social Media Breakfast Red Deer. I always enjoy attending the monthly events to learn something new about the social media world and network with like minded individuals in the community. Now I will also be working behind the screens upping our Instagram game and recapping events on the #SMBRD blog.
- I attended my fourth spin class last night at my local studio, My Revolution. I started off the class thinking, “This is awesome. Spin is so great, how much fun would it be to teach this!” and ended with shaky legs and my stomach contents threatening to eject. It was intense. During the class I learned that heavy climbs and the weight tracks are my jam and racing is definitely not.
- I have a giftcard to Lululemon burning a whole in my wallet and I have no idea what to spend it on. I haven’t shopped at Lulu for a few years now and am turning to you sports fans for help. I’m leaning towards the Down For A Run Pullover so I can finally have some decent winter running outwear but there’s none in my size. Do I wait for them to restock? Do I buy a vest instead or a jacket (because they have my size)? Orrrrrr do I get another pair of pants in obnoxious pink because, duh, pink, even though I really don’t need another pair of pants? Help meeeee!
- One of my 2016 goals was to revisit my budget. As part of that, I’ve been trying to control my grocery spending and limiting myself to $100/week. Every time I would get groceries I would be shocked that groceries for 1.5 people for a week was costing over $100 week after week. I know that I could help cut costs if I was better at meal planning and scoping deals, however that just isn’t my jam. So far this month I’ve done a pretty good job of sticking to the necessities and planning meals in my head while I shop based on what’s on sale. Anyone else have tips for saving money on groceries?
That’s it for me today. Share something you’re thinking about right now!
