My mom sent me a text yesterday: “Feb 10 last NN post? =/”
Eek, yes — I’ve been slacking. Where is my motivation to conquer those 2016 goals? Good question.
If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen that I was in Oklahoma last week for P’s graduation from Basic Training. And please, let that be the first and last time I visit Oklahoma. Since P joined the Army Reserves in November, life has obviously changed. I never thought – in one hundred years – that I, hippie Hill, would be an army girlfriend; but here I am, just that… and it is one of the most important things in my life at the moment. This change in our life is huge and unknown and scary and exciting and all-absorbing.
Sooner than later, I am hoping to reconvene with my personal hobbies and dreams – both recreational and professional – and to find fulfillment with flourishing in my own activities while my other half is states away (in San Antonio, Texas) until the end of the year.
In other news:
I started Whole30® on Monday. It will be a miracle if I make it 30 days without “breaking the rules” (no added sugar, alcohol, grains, legumes, or dairy). Since I don’t eat meat (aside from minimal seafood), I have a feeling that I am going to tire of sweet potatoes and eggs (and all the nuts!) real quick. Why would I do such a thing: my digestion. I’ve complained about it numerous times on the blog, and I just can not figure it out for the life of me; so, by this “elimination/anti-inflammatory diet”, I hope to get some answers…
That said, I just ordered my first box of RXBars (coffee chocolate flavor) because they are Whole30® approved. I’m way too excited for the mail to come!
My dad gifted me his Fitbit Charge HR™ that he wasn’t using, and it’s too much fun. I love that I can get statistics of my workouts (i.e. cardio versus fat burn heart rate zones) with the push of a button.
I got my first Stitch Fix a couple of days before I left for Oklahoma. And, as nervous as I was about it (I am darn picky!), the stylist had me figured out pretty well for my first fix (thank you, Pinterest). I ended up keeping the blanket scarf seen in these pictures and a pair of distressed/ankle-zip skinny jeans that I never would have picked out myself. I definitely plan to order another fix in the future.
That’s all for now, friends. I hope your week is going well! xo
