Witty Rewind: February 2019

I thought it’d be fun to capture each month’s activities and milestones in a series called Witty Rewind. It may not be for posterity’s sake, but I hope you’ll enjoy looking back at the previous month with me.

After my Whole30 high, I sadly slipped back into some old habits. It’s to be expected given my “all or nothing” attitude, but I also tried not to beat myself up too much for it. I saw some weight gain after reintroducing bread and cheese, and I scaled back on formal workouts to focus more on a StepBet at work. I feel OK, but I’ll be experimenting with a “clean eating on weekdays” approach for March. [Miles walked: 88.29]

I slowed down on reading considerably, as I’ve had to use my morning commute more for actual work time. That said, I’ve still enjoyed devouring a mix of fiction and nonfiction, from beach reads to heavier topics. Find me on Goodreads to see the latest! [Books read: 5.5]

Some highlights from the shortest (but most social) month:

  • Line dancing at The Saddle Rack for a dear friend’s birthday
  • Waking up the next morning to continental breakfast and a PANCAKE MACHINE
  • Hosting a Super Bowl party for that snoozefest of a game
  • Volunteering with the Junior League of SF and AOII alumnae group
  • Lunching with former colleagues on the rainiest day possible
  • (Not a highlight) Being knocked out with exhaustion and missing two events
  • Attending a JLSF yoga class for Galentine’s Day
  • Finding a new dentist who didn’t lecture or belittle me
  • Brunching with friends… and getting a peep show from an exhibitionist neighbor
  • MONSTER JAMMING for the fourth consecutive year
  • Starting the apartment hunt with one of my current roommates
  • Hosting Book Club as we discussed “The Last Mrs. Parrish”
  • Seeing “FRIENDS LIVE!,” a drag parody of the iconic sitcom
  • Celebrating the Lunar New Year parade from our annual Irish pub spot
  • Toasting to many birthdays, engagements, babies, and work accolades

That about does it for me. Can you believe it’s already March?! Madness, I say 😉🏀

Witty Rewind: January 2019

I thought it’d be fun to capture each month’s activities and milestones in a series called Witty Rewind. It may not be for posterity’s sake, but I hope you’ll enjoy looking back at the previous month with me.

I committed to doing Whole30 as a palate reset and general post-holiday hangover challenge. I’ll be doing a recap post in the next week or so, but I can happily share as part of this commitment, I feel like a whole new Witty! Stay tuned for more to come soon. [Lbs lost: 15.8]

My new commute means I’m getting plenty of time to read for fun. I haven’t been jumping into books for work just yet, but I can proudly say I’m already more than 1/4 through my personal goal of 40 books in 2019! [Books read: 11]

Despite wanting to get some R&R in after the holidays, my social life had a different idea. Some highlights include:

  • Hosting a NYE party
  • Seeing the Tampa Bay Lightning play the San Jose Sharks (even though they lost)
  • Sushi dinner with former colleagues
  • Annual mole patrol (AKA dermatologist appointment) came back clean
  • Finding a nail salon that looks like Hello Kitty’s dream home
  • Getting back into the dating scene… we’ll see
  • Doing yoga for a Cystic Fibrosis Foundation fundraiser
  • PAID OFF MY CREDIT CARDS!
  • Sushi dinner with my fellow AOII officers; Founders’ Day for AOIIs in Northern California
  • Volunteering with the Junior League of SF
  • Hosted my 4th? 5th? Gasparilla in SF
  • Book Club discussed “Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows”
  • Attending a team offsite, culminating with dinner at La Fontaine
  • Happy hour with former colleagues
  • Crushing the first week of my StepBet because I hate losing money

Phew! If this weekend is any indication, February shows no signs of slowing down. Here’s to all the next month will bring!
