This is my first Sunday Currently post - hopefully one of many. I think it's interesting to complete and read what others are "currently" doing. I found this version from two blogs and I decided since it was my first entry that I would combine both - it's okay to do that right? Hope so, if not, my apologies.
Today hasn't been too exciting. I didn't sleep too well last night - stupid stomach ache and headache! I've just cleaned up a bit and have some more laundry to get done - and that's my Sunday. Exciting huh? It's nice to relax a bit when I have to work the next few days and honestly, whenever I am working, it seems that nothing gets accomplished around the house.
C U R R E N T L Y . . .
Reading: "Orange is the new Black" by Piper Kerman and "Crazy, Sexy, Diet" by Kriss Carr. I started and finished the show Orange is the new Black on Netflix and I absolutely loved it. I found it ended a little abruptly for my liking, but I think I'm just saying that because apparently I have to wait until 2014 for new episodes. Which, if you think about it, isn't that far away. Great book & great show! Crazy, Sexy, Diet I picked up after hearing about it from a friend. It's not just a diet book that has recipes and tells you what you should and shouldn't be eating. It's more about the whole picture - your attitude, your thoughts and yes, pros/cons of certain foods. I have actually learned quite a bit so far and it has opened my eyes on things that I never really would have noticed otherwise.
Writing: This blog - my first entry of Sunday Currently
Music: I'm not listening to any music, however, my iPod has a wide range of music from country, to the Great Gatsby Soundtrack (which is GREAT by the way!), to songs you hear on the radio. I always surprise people when they hear my music - I guess I have always been pegged as a country fan.
Listening: While writing this I am watching "The Wolfman" with Benicio Del Toro and Anthony Hopkins. There is a poor movie selection on TV for a Sunday.
Guilty Pleasure: Double chocolately chip frapps, from Starbucks! It seems that I have to somehow make my way to a Starbucks every other time I am out. It also doesn't help that they have built two new ones very close to my house in the last few months - one being a drive thru!
Thinking: I'm thinking about a lot actually and that's probably why I couldn't sleep very well last night. I'm waiting on approval for something and if things are approved, my life could be changing for the better but in a huge way. I'm thinking what needs to be done if things are approved, what happens if they aren't approved, am I making the right decision with everything etc .... My mind never rests.
Drink: Decaf orange pekoe tea. I tend to stay away from caffeine as much as I can.
Wishing: That I heard about this "approval/non-approval" soon so I know what is going on and so I know where my head needs to be at.
Food: Strawberry greek yogurt
Wearing: Pajama pants from La Senza, cheerleading competition tee and a comfortable Dickies sweater. My typical wardrobe when I'm not feeling well and I am not embarrassed to say otherwise.
Loving: The fact that I have three more double shifts and then I am off to Toronto for an overnight and off for a few days from work.
Wish list: A pair of Jimmy Choo's and Jeffrey Campbell's that I found online the other day. I have NEVER in my life been so in love with a pair of shoes than I am right now with the Choo's! I literally screamed out loud. But on a more practical level - to continue eating healthier like I have been and to continue losing weight like I have been.
Wanting: A GOOD sleep!!
Needing: To finish my laundry
Blessing: That I am able to have everything that I have in my life and that I may be able to take on an adventure to last a lifetime.
Feeling: Tired and like crap from not sleeping last night and this stupid stomach ache that NEEDS to go away!
Clicking: The keys as I am trying to finish this entry.
Excitement: That there are four days until one of the best days of the year - The CNE 2013. Every year since I can remember, my parents used to take my brother and I to the CNE every summer before school started. It's now a family tradition that has turned into who can eat the most outrageous thing from the food building to who can win the biggest prize. It's a lot of fun and my brother and I both look forward to it every summer. This year, it's apparently the year of the "Kronut" which is a Krispy Kreme doghnut burger - yes, I dared my brother to eat one! This year we'll be spending the night in Toronto - which we don't always get to do between the three of us having to book days off work - but I'm looking forward to that as well since I LOVE hotels!
Well, there is my first entry for Sunday Currently. It took a little longer than I thought, but maybe it was because I combined two versions I found. However, it was actually really fun and I am looking forward to completing more entries!
Happy Sunday Everyone! :)
