Linking up with Meghan at Clean Eats, Fast Feets for the Week in Review.
Once again looking at my planner to jog my memory…
Last week, I:
-went for a killer 6-mile hike at some new-to-me trails. Was expecting to hike 1 1/2-2 hours, but we actually hiked for 3 hours over some pretty tough trails. I did not bring enough water for that…
-followed by a meal at Applebees’s—the only nearby restaurant that wasn’t fast food—where I drank a lot of water, instead of the bloody mary I really wanted. #adulting
-worked three full days: Monday 0430-1915, Wednesday 0430-1800, Friday 0430-1700. The boss was out of town from Tuesday on for a big annual meeting, so I shuffled between my two clinics both days. My replacement on the floor is awesome, and she passed her competency exam on Monday, so I was free to leave the building and do what I needed to do. Side note: staring at the same spreadsheet for six hours is about my limit.
-Besides the hike, I did one treadmill workout: 20 minutes at 3 mph with a 20-pound weighted backpack. #harderthanitsounds Also did a brief strength-training session. Gotta get myself back together again.
-Read The Stars at Oktober Bend (fantastic read!), The Girl and the Grove (had potential, but didn’t deliver), Elektra’s Adventures in Tragedy (really enjoyed this), The Way you Make Me Feel (loved the character development and foodie culture!), and finished reading Stillhouse Lake (creepy).
-I got in an hour of writing on a new fiction project, in 10-minute chunks!
That’s it for me. This week I’ll be at Pink Impact, my church women’s conference, from Thursday evening until Saturday at 11, then I fly out to New Orleans that afternoon for my dad’s surgery on Monday, and I’ll be back on Tuesday night.
