I am so glad to see Friday come this week. The BF & I returned from vacation last Sunday, just in time to do some laundry & go to work on Monday. Not much time to catch up on sleep & decompress. So, I'm excited to do some of that this weekend.
1 // I posted my first of a couple New Zealand trip recap posts this week, which you can find here & here. I'll have part 3 up on Monday. So make sure to stop back. I'll also post some tips for not strangling your significant other later next week.
2 // Womp, womp, womp. I dropped the ball on my February goals. No real excuse, other than lack of follow through and time. But. I'm regrouping for March, and have my February recap & March goals here.
3 // I finished book
#3 #4 (counting is hard) for 2016 while on my trip, Run Less, Run Faster. Everything talked about lines up with how I like to train using only 3 runs a week. I think I'll be testing out their half marathon plan come fall.
4 // I continue to have a project at work kick my ass. I'm in the process of getting my Green Belt, if any of you are on the Six Sigma bandwagon. If not, it's using a lot of statistical tools to prove that I know what I know. And then putting it in to a PowerPoint so I can show people my fancy charts and graphs. There's no time to work on it during the work day, since I work in a very operational job. So, I've been trying to bust it out on the weekends. But boy does that suck.
5 // Headed to the 'in-laws' house for dinner on Wednesday night. The past 4 times I've been over there, there have been green beans, that woman must really like those things. I, on the other hand, cannot stand the smell or taste. I politely try ONE green bean every time they are served, because I'm a grown-up & maybe one day I'll taste one & it will be delicious. But in the meantime, they continue to gross me out. The MIL seems to get mildly offended I don't eat them, but what can I do. I told her I do not participate in green beans, but they keep popping up at the table. I don't expect her to change her offerings for me. But I do expect her to understand that I do not intend to fill my plate with them.
Any Six Sigma Green Belts out there?

Do you keep track of books you've read? - Using GoodRead or some other system?
