Favorite Things: December 28, 2018 – January 4, 2019

favorite things

Does it feel like it took forever to get to Friday this week, or is that just me? I’m glad it is finally the weekend, made all the better because the next two days involves zero travel, no holiday parties, nothing at all. Hello, return to normalcy.

I have nothing too exciting planned, which is exactly how I want it. Tomorrow morning I have my small group. We’re still reading this book. Then Sunday I’ll do a longish run around an hour and fifteen minutes. Probably needless to say (but I’ll say it anyway), but I’ll mostly be working on my dissertation.

So, without further ado, here are this week’s favorite things:

Kaci Lickteig posts about her year of overcoming injury and return to running.

I think we can all agree that we can leave words like collusion, grapple, platform, and wheelhouse in 2018.

Eric Schranz on his first year of not drinking. When in Connecticut, I tried to find the Athletic Brewing beer he mentions. I couldn’t find it at the liquor stores where (according to the brewery website) I thought I would find it, so I think I’ll have to just order it.

Foods for eating healthier on a budget. I’m pretty sure Bruno and I go through three cartons of eggs a week. Maybe that is too much for two people?

Bad habits we won’t give up for 2019.

Yesterday I declared 2019 the year of 1% better. Here is an article by James Cleary on the Lakers and 1% improvements.

Outcome goals vs. process goals.

Any big plans for this weekend? Or, like me, are you spending this weekend hanging out with your dissertation, wondering “can I graduate“?
