Is it just me or did this week seriously go by at a snail’s pace? Bah hum bug. But, we’ve finally made it to Friday, friends. Rejoice!
| ONE. I’m ignoring all things relating to the inauguration today. And to be quite honest, I’m not sorry about it. This election cycle has been absolutely draining. I’m heartbroken by how much ignorance and hatred is in our world. I can only pray that our country will rise up and be better sooner rather than later.
| TWO. On a happier note, we’re off to London! For someone who’d never been before, I got to go twice last year and I loved it. I’d love to check out Regent & Oxford Streets and Piccadilly Circus again. Also, I hope we’ll have time to go back to Buckingham Palace and stroll through the gardens one more time before our year passes end!
| THREE. All of you book nerds are killin’ me. I’m so drawn to the ‘must-read list’ blog posts lately, however, my to-read list has suddenly spiraled way out of control. Luckily, I have plenty of recommendations to keep me happy for a while. Thanks, y’all! Good lookin’ out! 👊🏽
| FOUR. We finally got a crockpot and I cannot believe how long we went without one. I love being able to throw all my items into one dish & then not think about it for hours, haha. If you follow me on Instagram (@thatgirlmyra_), you can check out my story as I was prepping the meal. And if you want the full recipe, come back here next week, because I’ll be doing a recipe roundup of quick & easy dinner meals.
| FIVE. A while ago, I talked about how I was slowly getting back into my fitness routine. At the time, my friend Alyssa made a comment that became a mantra for me — you can do anything for 5 more minutes. Whenever I run, I usually do 20 minutes (which is mostly 2 miles for me). But yesterday, I decided to add 5 minutes to my run. I haven’t been feeling 100% this week, but I told myself I could go the 5 more minutes. So I set off, slow & steady, and before I knew it, I was wrapping up a 25 minute run. While it’s not my next half-marathon, it’s better than my last run and for that, I’m super proud!
And that’s it for these unbelievably long 5 days, y’all! Haha!
How was your week?!
