New things

Posted on October 8, 2013. Filed under: Uncategorized |

A new book: 

I read Jhumpa Lahiri’s new book The Lowland in a flash. It was another incredible book, which is not surprising at all because she is one of my favorite authors to read. The story is very heavy and emotional but so well-written. I was hooked from the start. I started the next book in the Gabriel Allon series. After this one there is only one more book and then I’m all caught up. Kind of insane but also kind of awesome with my long commute.

A new workout (well, two):

Monday – Shape circuit (new!)
Tuesday – Rest
Wednesday – Rest
Thursday – 45 minutes Flywheel (new!)
Friday – 60 minutes Bar Method
Saturday – 75 minutes outdoor bike ride
Sunday – Rest

A new pain:

All I’m going to say about football is that I’m doing better in both of my fantasy leagues (4-0 and 2-2) than the Giants are doing in their real season. Sigh.

A new outing:

In two weeks I’m heading to The Hunt, which is a horse race in Far Hills, NJ. A friend I grew up with hosts a few tents each year with his family and I’m so excited to be able to go for the first time this year. I’m excited for fall weather, some delicious drinks, a few horses and time with friends.

A new doctor:

Last weekend I had a physical with my new doctor. She was so inviting and nice and I felt very comfortable talking to her. I’m excited to find a new primary care physician I like after loving my one in Virginia for so many years. She gave me recommendations for an eye doctor, a dermatologist, an ob-gyn and an orthopedist (stupid foot). I need to get going on these appointments and line up my new team of folks.

What’s new with all of you?
