Other things I've been up to lately....
My friend and I came up with a business idea a couple months ago and I've been really busy the last couple months working with her during my free time. We've hardly told anyone about it to be honest. However, things are coming together and hopefully we'll be able to launch in the next couple months! I'm excited to share what we've been doing.
It stormed all weekend here and today (Monday) we had a typhoon. I don't even know what number typhoon this was for the summer! There's been a good handful. Kind of a bummer when its bad weather all weekend, but nice of the typhoon to come on Monday because Duke got to stay home. Any extra day I get him at home is fine by me!
I've started listening to podcasts again and I'm loving them! I listened to Serial along with the rest of the world and loved it. I listen here and there to Stuff You Should Know, which I enjoy but it isn't super engaging. This last week I started listening to This American Life and Fresh Air and I am in love with them. Mostly This American Life. Such interesting topics that makes me think about things in new perspectives. I use to listen to NPR all the time in the car when I lived in the states, but since there is only ONE english radio station out here I kinda fell off that bandwagon too. But I really enjoy that kind of stuff!
The Hydro Flask water bottle has changed my life. My friend converted me and then I converted Duke and now we never leave home without them! Keeps your water COLD for 24 hours. Or hot beverages hot for 12 hours (haven't tested that one out). It's a little pricey for a water bottle, but it makes it so much easier for me to drink my water when it's cold. Also invest in the flip top, if you are lazy like me and unscrewing a water bottle is too much work ;)
Tomorrow I start my 4th week of Kayla Itsines Beach Body Guides. It's a 12-week program of intense but quick (28 minute) workouts. Actually she includes 4 weeks of pre-training for beginners-so I'm in the pre-taining week. Still killer. I've been following her on Instagram for months, and finally decided I want to give it a try. This is the most consistent I have worked out since BEFORE having Lucy, so it feels really good. I dread them and look forward to them all at the same time. I'd highly recommend them!
Planning our trip to Taipei over Labor Day. It's such an overlooked country-but the more I research, the more excited I'm getting. It's just a hop away from us; about an hour or so plane ride. Perfect for a long weekend. If anyone has been there I'd love to hear your favorite things you did there. I love exploring this world!!!!! AHHH!
I'm looking forward to the rest of the week! I'm working on getting out of the house more with Lucy and really exploring this island. I can't get enough!!
