I’ve been posting a lot of serious weight loss related posts lately, so I think I need to spice thigns up a bit. And since I haven’t had a whole lot of time to sit down and write up anything about my oh-so-exciting life, I am going to link up with Jenn for her “Currently” link up!

current book(s): The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson

current playlist: Well, I don’t really listen to a “playlist”, but in my CD player right now is The Band Perry CD, and my radio station at work is tuned in to the oldies

current color: I’ve recently been incorporating more and more green into my wardrobe and accessory collection

current food: I can’t stop thinking about the Better Blueberry Pancakes I talked about here

current favorite show(s): Oh, I’m so stoked on the fact that Pretty Little Liars, The Lying Game, The Secret Circle, and Hart of Dixie are making their mid-winter comebacks. And I am patiently anxiously awaiting the return of the RR/RW Challenge (Battle of the Exes… how can it NOT be a good season???)

current needs: continued motivation and self control. I feel myself losing steam with my morning workouts, so I’m trying to power through. But bed is so nice at 5:45 in the morning…

current triumphs: avoiding fast food! I have had to run errands on my lunch break a few times the past couple weeks and everytime, I see those damn golden arches taunting me. But I’ve stayed strong and gone to Safeway and chosen something fairly healthy for lunch.

current banes of my existence: work. Not because I hate my job, but because I am feeling so motivated lately with working out and being productive around the house that I would be so much happier if I could just NOT come to work and go to the gym or stay home and be domestic.

current celebrity crush: Hmm… Urijah Faber for one (more of an athlete crush), Pauly D (if you can call him a celebrity), Ryan Gosling (isn’t he EVERYBODY’S celebrity crush right now?). Those are the 3 that come to mind

current #1 blessing: This is a hard one. I guess I would just say that it feels like a blessing to be starting a new year. I just feel so good about being able to get a fresh start with everything. Finances, my attitude, weight loss and health goals… this is a time to just regain control.

current indulgence: Skinny Cow White Mint Truffle ice cream bars. They taste like such a guilty pleasure, but there’s nothing to feel guilty about! (although I’ve tried to refrain because I’m trying to avoid sweet treats in general… but if I’m gonna slip, it’s better to slip with one of those than a pint of Haagen Dazs chocolate peanut butter ice cream…

current outfit: black work pants, brown heels, brown cardigan/shrug deal over a black shirt with a lime-ish green tank underneath. With brown/black/green earrings. And a brown bow headband.

current excitement: The fact that a) my tax return will be coming soon to replenish my house savings account that was sadly dimished during the holidays, b) my next paycheck will reflect a 5% raise, c) Chad is working steadily right now. All of these things really give me hope that we may ACTUALLY be able to buy a house this year!

current mood: I was feeling really relaxes and happy to not have a ton of stuff to get done… until I was just reminded that I have to do lunch coverage on our teller line today. Poo.

current favorite quote or verse: the Serenity Prayer is pretty much always on the top of my list as far as quotes go: “God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.” It’s pretty much the go to for me to tell myself.

current favorite app: Well, I guess I like to play Bejeweled (or whatever the free version of that is called) on my phone. I don’t have an iphone, so I don’t have all the really cool stuff I guess…

current favorite product: Chad’s sister just gave me some of this great moisturizer by Murad to try, and thus far I am loving it. It doesn’t leave my face feeling greasy or oily, yet it leaves my face feeling fresh with just a little bit.

So, those are the things going on in my life currently. Go check out Jenn’s blog and link up.
