Currently, I’m…

It’s been a couple months since I’ve done one of these and I always find them so fun as a way to check-in!

currently

READING:

I just finished ‘Seriously…I’m kidding’ by Ellen which technically was an audio book…but it still counts for this, right?

WATCHING:

Thanks to Netflix I’ve fallen into the world of old shows I used to love (aka ‘One Tree Hill’) or shows I’ve wanted to get into (aka ‘Parenthood’). Other than that

WRITING:

Just more of the usual…posts for TLSM, prompts for Daily Aspire, and random writing for work. I’m hoping to be adding in more freelance stuff in the coming weeks, fingers crossed.

DRINKING:

I’m on a major sparkling water kick right now! We can probably thank my apple cider vinegar cocktail for it, but I think I’ve finally caught the La Croix bug.

EATING:

ALL the smoothies, ALL the time! It doesn’t help that it’s been super hot this week and cooking hot food makes the apartment even hotter. Between the Perfect Fit Protein and 22 Days Nutrition Protein, it’s very possible the 2x daily smoothies may happen soon.

WEARING:

Tank tops and yoga pants, even some short shorts to get through the heat. Seriously, mid to upper 80s this week. What happened to spring?

SWEATING:

I’ve been following the Tone It Up Bikini Series and honestly, I’m still loving it! The workouts are varied and the whole mix and match shorter workouts to get one longer workout, is really working for me. Plus, I’m getting to run more again and you know that makes me happy!

DOING:

Check out my garden! Things are starting to sprout and it’s really exciting. I’ve never considered myself much of a gardener but I’m hoping this is the start of a very full apartment sized garden this summer!

Also, Snapchat. I’m not great at it yet, but I’ll get there in time. And for those of you who left your usernames in the comments section, I’m working on following you back asap so you can teach me the ways! 😉

NEEDING:

Another fan…Seriously. I really need to head to the store for a giant, powerful oscillating fan to get me through the summer if it’s going to get that hot in here. Anyone have recommendations on a good one?


Pick one and answer!

      The part of me that slept on the floor in the living room last night to be near the AC is a bit jealous of your cooler weather. haha

    We’ve also been getting into the habit of drinking homemade smoothies on these beastly hot afternoons. It helps a lot to have that to look forward to and cool you down!

      Right? I totally ate more ice cream than I should admit yesterday and I don’t think it was because I wanted ice cream but because it was cooling me down. ha!

      I know I’ve seen a few episodes here and there but this is the first time I’ve really watched it!

    I can relate to the small apartment and wanting to cook as little as possible so as to not increase the temperature. We’ve yet to turn on the A/C but it’s coming soon and quick. I also notice that it’s time when the dogs start panting a heck of a lot more, too.

    Love the Currently posts.. 🙂 Have a great day, Katie!

      I turned mine on last night…I couldn’t sleep so I moved to the living room to sleep on the floor by it. It took all night for the little thing to reach my room to even kind of cool it down. I need a better plan for summer… :-/

      nooooo!! My basil plant seems to be doing alright so far and my little tomato plant is going to need a cage soon, I think!! The lettuce is sprouting but no sign of cilantro or peppers (yet)…

      Oh man, growing up we had these AMAZING window fans, that’s probably what I need. I ended up on the floor in the living room by the AC last night because I couldn’t sleep with the heat and humidity. haha!

    Oh I can’t wait to get out in my garden. I have slowly been getting the garden beds ready, and hopefully will get to the greenhouse tonight to buy some seedlings and seeds. And smoothies are a thing all the time here as well – I started freezing them in silicone Popsicle molds for my kiddos.

    Funny how the weather is so different everywhere! It was hot here until last Sunday and ever since it’s been cold and raining all the time. We are said to get better weather starting this afternoon – I really hope so!
    Do you have AC in your apartment? We don’t have it here in Germany, it is not a common thing in homes or at the office. Newer buildings and malls do have it though. During summer I wished we had one in our home, but fans are great as well! You can never have too many of them during summer!
    Loving your little sprouts! Awesome!

      I do have a built in AC unit though I haven’t turned it on yet so I’m not sure how good it is.
