Find out what is currently going on in my life this month, march.

currently, march

Can you believe that it’s the last day of March? Where is the year going? Anyway, here is what’s currently going on in my life.

Watching

The problem is, I haven’t kept up with anything. I need like a week to catch up on two seasons of Scandal, How to Get Away With Murder, The Blacklist, Blindspot, and Queen Sugar. Chile……

Reading

Well RE-Reading You Are A Badass By Jenn Sincero.

what Im reading right now

Sometimes, I need reminding. So I’m starting my month off with this one.

Listening

To podcasts. I’m loving Myleik Teele, The Read, The Axe Files, and Missing Richard Simmons just to name a few. I like listening to them while I am getting ready for my day, in the car and while I’m working. Any new suggestions?

Making

Taco Salad..no Taco…

I’ve been making a conscious effort to meal plan and eat healthy. I finished Jenny Craig this month and it really changed the way I think about portions and food. But after loosing 9 pounds, I was stuck there. Not moving.  I knew I needed to change some things and I have.  While I am not following a specific diet, I am eating Low Carb/ Whole 30 like. At 40 almost 41  years old, my body has decided that Carbs ( potatoes,  rice, ALL THE BREAD) are not my friend. So I cut back on them for the last 2 weeks and lost 5 pounds. I think it’s going to have be a way of life. I will let myself have carbs occasionally ( my mother is coming and I WILL have her biscuits for my birthday) but not with every meal and sometimes, not everyday.

Feeling

Anxious. The matter of Pookah’s education is a big one. We’ve spent the month visiting schools and I swear, unless I am prepared to pay an arm and 2 legs to educate my child, we are screwed. His current school is not showing me that they have his best interests at heart,  the neighborhood elementary school has gotten worse, not better since we moved here, and the school lottery system just SUCKS. I have prayed over it and I’m trying to let go and let God. It’s hard. I want the best for him, and not being able to actively do that is killing me.

Loving

It’s ARIES SEASON!!!!!! My birthday is in 14 days…save yo pennies LOL

 

Planning

harry potter!

Our first summer Vacation!! It’s a short one, but we are going to Orlando at the end of May. Unknown to Pookah, we will be spending a few days at Disney, Universal and a side trip to the beach.  I am sooooo excited! Mainly for Universal because guys….The Wizarding World of Harry Potter!!!!!! Do you know how long I have wanted to go and visit there???? Do you understand how much of a Harry Potter fanatic I am? LAWD I might be more excited that Pookah will be. I want a wand… #thatisall

 

So that’s what’s going on in my life. What’s going on in yours?

    I look & feel so much better when I cut back on carbs, but GOD, I JUST REALLY LOVE CARBS, so it’s freaking HARD…

    I’m loving Missing Richard Simmons – so weird – & am catching up on every single episode of My Favorite Murder – also so weird.

    My family and I just got back from our Orlando segment of our Florida getaway, and did a full day of the Harry Potter World at Universal. Umm… wow!!! Totally knocked our socks off! Worth every penny and moment soaking up the experience! 🙂 Awesome!!! You all will LOVE it! 🙂

    (I’ll be blogging about it soon).

    Cheers,
    Barb

    Carbs are that distant cousin that you love so much, but you get in trouble with them every time they’re in town.

    My 8 year old is totally Harry Potter obsessed as of a few months ago. She’s been diligently reading the books and has watched 5 out of the 7 (?) movies. We have yearly passes for Disney for the first time ever and of course now she wants to go to Universal. When I told her about the Harry Potter part of the park she freaked out. I’m hoping we’ll be able to take her next year.
    Like you, I’ve started a few shoes and am way behind and don’t feel like catching up. Maybe later…
    So much to do, so little time.
    I hope, you’ll be able to figure out what to do about the school issue. It’s a tough one. We have our kids in private school. I work here to make it easier on our wallet. It’s not always easy but worth it.
