Fri – 30 minutes of light elliptical intervals.
Sat - 60 minutes of aerial silks class.
Sun – Much-needed rest!
Mon – 30 minutes of elliptical intervals.
Taking an aerial silks class has been on my bucket list for a long time now. I had been putting it off because I wanted to work on strengthening my upper body first, but then a coupon popped up and, well, you know how that goes.
1) I found a few cups of cornmeal while organizing my pantry. Wanting dessert, I spent a few minutes searching online and stumbled across a SkinnyTaste recipe for Cornmeal Cake (Bolo de Fubá), which didn’t need a lot of wheat flour. I cut the recipe in half, baked it for 35 minutes in an 8×8, and decreased the sugar.
It had a wonderful crispness on top, with a thick custardy layer in the middle. Plus, it only used one bowl!
2) Panseared chicken and broccoli, with a blob of PB atop. Standard work-week dinner.
Big News: We’re moving! (sorta)
You may have noticed that I sometimes constantly complain about being stressed. One of the big reasons is that my husband was recently offered a job in Saipan.
If you’re like everyone else, you’re saying, “wtf is Saipan?” It’s a tiny island in the South Pacific, kind of in between Australia and Japan.
I didn’t want to tell anyone until we were completely certain that he would accept (which he has). This is a fantastic opportunity for him career-wise and I’m super excited for this new big adventure…but, I would be lying if I said that my inner-housecat isn’t a little nervous. We’re taking it in stride.
So, what does “moving (sorta)” actually mean? I’ll fly there with him in late March to help secure an apartment and perform other wifely duties, like making sure he has enough socks. Then, I’ll fly back to Pittsburgh to complete my spring semester. I’ll try to tuck an intense summer semester under my belt before we re-evaluate when I should move to Saipan myself, likely mid-August.
For now, I’m slugging through midterms, planning a trip to visit family in Kentucky, and looking forward to a tropical vacation
Have you ever made a Big Move before?
