Things I’m excited about in February!

By , February 1, 2017 7:53 am

Looks like it’s shaping up to be a week of lists and bullet points. That’s about all my brain can handle! I feel so distracted lately!

  1. Continuing to write a weekly training plan for a friend. It brings me so much joy to see a friend work hard and make progress, and feel good because of those efforts.
  2. Training hard on my bike! I’m starting to do some indoor incline training to get ready for RAGBRAI, but I also want to work on my speed – I am doing the bike leg of a triathlon relay in June!
  3. Teaching indoor cycling! I am teaching it twice this month, and I work hard on my playlist and the class sequence to make it fun (but also challenging MUAH HA HA) for my students.
  4. Seeing this guy!!! And family!
  5. Meeting our friends’ newest baby! Some of our friends here had their second son in December and we get to meet him this weekend.
  6. Saving money! I opened my first savings account as an adult (I know, I know, we won’t get in to why I didn’t have one until now) and plan to put my part-time job money in it.
  7. Having a new 5K to focus on (the race is April 1). Normally, I’d be putting Frosty on a list of things I am excited about in February, but I don’t even know if I’ll go. What a clusterf*ck.
  8. Celebrating our one year anniversary of closing on the house! It’s this weekend! We took January off from house projects, but I think we are picking them back up this month. We are going to do some work in the basement – clean up the ceiling (it used to be finished, then was flooded, and a lot of old ceiling structure needs to be cleaned up) and set up an area for Steven to put an Olympic weight set.
  9. Date nights with friends. Nothing planned yet… but I know we’ll get a few things going! And hopefully some date nights with Steven. I have some movie theater gift cards burning a hole in my pocket.
  10. Strengthening my swimming. I want to get better at breathing on my left side without it feeling like I am drowning myself!

    Gah, I can’t get over what a great job you did with that blanket! It looks amazing!

    You’re putting in an Oly set in your basement? Maybe I’ll come train at your house? 😉

  2. I can’t believe it’s been a year since you guys closed on your house! I’m excited to hear more about your home improvement projects – I found those posts super interesting and inspirational!

    Baby William is just the cutest, of course, but I can’t not gush over the blanket – your knitting is really gorgeous!

    Such a sweet baby! Sounds like you’ve got a lot of good things going on this month – enjoy!

    All these bullets… it’s like some kind of journal 🙂

    I’m excited that January is finally over! It felt like such a long, gray slog. And yay for date nights!

    And way to be responsible with the savings account! We have one but haven’t been able to put anything in it for a while – we’re starting to save again this month though 🙂

      It is like that… but what would you call that?

      Yes! We need to get our February one planned!

      Good, I am happy you guys can! I really just opened this one to save money so we can take a ten year anniversary trip muah ha ha.

        Hmmm… I guess we’ll never know!

        Yeah, February is booking up fast! (no it’s not)

        Oooh anniversary trip! That’ll be fun! Do you have any places in mind?

        • kilax says:

          Yeah, my brain hurts too much to try to figure it out 

          LOL! Maybe 2/24?

          I kind of do in my head but I haven’t discussed with Steven yet! We haven’t been to CA, but Europe is also appealing. Again, note: all in my head. Ha.

  7. That is one adorable baby! And I still love love love the blanket!
