1 – I’ve been dealing with a pulled muscle in my right shoulder blade for over a week now. I’ve taken a complete rest from all exercise (I did exercise on Tuesday but then my shoulder ached all day long), been applying IcyHot patches for an hour a day, and popping Advil like it’s candy. It’s slowly starting to feel better, but it feels like it’s taking forever. It’s funny, though, how much perspective injuries give you. I miss being able to lift weights and do push-ups and work out on the elliptical! And I may even miss doing burpees.
2 – With nothing incredibly exciting looming on the horizon for me, I’ve decided to take on two 3-month challenges for the summer months: a budget challenge and Project 333. I’ll be talking more about them in the coming months but for now, suffice it to say, I am really excited for what these three months will bring and how it will change me. The budget challenge is so necessary right now because my finances are a bit of a mess. I need to tighten the reins! And Project 333 is something I’ve wanted to do ever since Ashley posted about it a year ago and I’m excited to minimalize my wardrobe and learn more about my personal style. Stay tuned!
3 – I saw The Great Gatsby last weekend and thought it was such a great movie! I reread the book last month in preparation for the movie coming out and it’s actually a bit of a downer book. I don’t remember the ending being so sad when I read it in high school. (I think I was too busy fawning over Gatsby…) Anyway, I really enjoyed the movie and the glitz and glamour of it all. I thought it was really well done and stayed very true to the book.
4 – NASHVILLE. OMG. How am I going to wait until September to find out what happens next?! I can’t even deal.
5 – Tomorrow, my mom and I are off to Orlando for a fun mini-vacation for the long weekend. I still have two days left on my four-day Disney pass which expires in two weeks. So we decided to make it a weekend! We’re going to Hollywood Studios tomorrow and Disney World on Sunday, and then we check out of the hotel on Monday. I’m excited for a little getaway and I always love being in Orlando. I can’t wait!
What do you have planned for the summer? Any fun adventures or challenges or travels?
