the sunday currently, volume 70.



from last weekend. hello, friend in the back! 

Best of mornings to ya, folks. As I sat down to tap out this week's currently post, I realized that I am lacking a bit of inspiration, lacking a bit of excitement to share with you all. But then, I realized almost as quickly that the premise behind The Sunday Currently is not to only share when you have something interesting or groundbreaking or wonderful to relate - it is about simply sharing what is currently going on in your life. So that's what I did today. And I didn't feel guilty about its lack of luster, once I realized that. Not every week of your life can be thrilling or inspiration-laden, or even productive, & that is ok. It's part of life. And it makes those inspiring weeks that much more wonderful, doesn't it?

C  U  R  R  E  N  T  L  Y  .  .  .  

R E A D I N G food labels a bit more carefully this week. I started a food journal at the end of this past year, & I like to think it's helping me on the quest to being more healthy. It's definitely true that when you write down everything you eat, you're slower to to have that second cookie. 
W R I T I N G some exciting emails soon, maybe even this week. Sometimes you just have to put yourself out there & see if any opportunities are waiting on you. And even if they're aren't any, you're still the better for making a move, instead of standing by idly & wondering when things will change.
L I S T E N I N G to cars zoom past our apartment on the road right outside our window. It's very quiet in the 103 this morning. And sometimes, that kind of solitude is exactly what I crave on a Sunday morning.
T H I N K I N G that sometimes when I'm writing out my currentlies, my mind will go blank. I'll read "thinking," & I'll be like... "... wait, what am I thinking?" Other times, the words flow easily. I'm sure I'm not the only person this happens to.  
S M E L L I N G the Caramel Vanilla Cream k-cup I just brewed up & am now enjoying. Ahhhhh, coffee & it's restorative properties. And I think CVC is one of my all-time favorites, along with Breakfast Blend & Pumpkin Spice. Do you use k-cups? What are your favorite flavors? I love trying new ones.
W I S H I N G I could have sushi & Mexican food each day & never gain a pound. I went to one of my favorite local Mexican restaurants last night with a friend, & now all I can think of is having it again! 
H O P I N G I will stick to my exercise plan this week, as well as the new weekly routine I've established for myself. I am always on the quest for balance. 
W E A R I N G ... what else? Pajamas.
L O V I  N G watching Game of Thrones. And also loving that it is as good as everyone said it was. Now I really want to read those ridiculously long books, because I love ridiculously long books the best.
W A N T I N G some hash brown casserole. And more Mexican food. And sushi. And some red curry. Do you see why I need to be on my workout game this week?
N E E D I N G to be easier on myself this week, but also to get everything done. Maybe loosening the reins on myself will push me toward more productivity?
F E E L I N G a little strange & a little sad.  
C L I C K I N G Jen's 2014 New Years Resolutions video yesterday was highly inspiring to me. I also enjoyed her recent Bag Buzz post.

I get that too!!! One second I'm thinking about a random thing then the next second I don't know what I'm thinking about =))

I love Green Mountain Coffee's Pumpkin Spice k-cups, but my favorite plain coffee k-cups are the Caribou Coffee Daybreak Morning blend. I also watch all of Jen's channels, and I agree that her New Year's Resolution video was one of her most inspiring!

I'm glad I'm not the only one this week! I went to type out my post this morning and couldn't come up with much at all. My favorite k-cup is the Cafe Escapes Vanilla, there's no coffee in it but it's a nice vanilla flavor when I don't want coffee. The Chai Latte is really good too.

I sometimes have a hard time coming up with what to say too. :) I absolutely love my keurig but I use the refillable k-cups and just buy my own coffee beans. I can be really particular about coffee so I never found a k-cup that I liked.

You are making me crave for sushi now.

Last week we ate Mexican food three times and I am trying to see how I can make it the same this week!

Mmm, sushi and Mexican! Both are sooo good! I think Mexican can actually be quite healthy if you skip the fried parts and amp up the veggies. Fresh corn tortillas are a good substitute for fried hard taco shells, regular black beans are just as tasty as refried beans, and most recipes will be just as satisfying with less cheese. Any dishes in particular that you're craving?
