What's Up Wednesday: March

Hey y'all,

I am in disbelief that it is almost April and Easter will be here in no time! I am loving that the Spring weather is starting to appear here in NC although, it was 32 this morning and 62 this afternoon. Time to share What's Up for March:

1. What I'm Eating this Week:

I recently discovered the Dinner Deal from Fresh Market. Y'all need to check it out! Sunday I grabbed the meal (fajitas) which I ate on Monday and Tuesday for low carb days. I also grabbed one of their market meals (parmesan basil chicken penne with squash) for regular carb days.

 I also made Momfessional's broccoli salad for low carb day with a lettuce wrapped hamburger on the side.

2. What I'm Reminiscing About:

This time last year I was in California visiting a lot of my mom's side of the family for my cousin's wedding. It's also hard to not be over there right now as my cousin Michelle welcomed her third boy a few weeks ago and Maddy is due with a little girl next week!

3. What I'm Loving:

This adorable Bee Kind sweatshirt from Old Navy. I grabbed it when it was under $20 and today it's on sale for $15! It's perfect for a casual Friday in the office or for running errands.
FASTer Way to Fat Loss. I know this program is getting a lot of buzz in the blogging community, but I signed up for the March 4th round with my coach and I am loving the program. It's a six-week program with a prep week that focuses on whole food nutrition, intermittent fasting, carb cycling, and progress over perfection. I am on week 3 and already seeing improved sleep and my pants aren't so tight! I will share some of my meals next week and I'm happy to answer any questions!

4. What I've Been Up To:

Summit Women's Conference. This past weekend I attended my church's women's conference this past weekend and will share more tomorrow. It was an amazing event of over 1600 women gathering for worship, bible study, and community.

Apart from that, I have been pet/house sitting for my friends while they visited Europe, taken many a trip to the library, and spent time with my parents.

5. What I'm Dreading:

Nothing at the moment luckily!

6. What I'm Working On:

Restarting this blog

7. What I'm Excited About:

March Madness. I am currently #2 in the work bracket surprisingly so I am excited to see how my bracket stands throughout the weekend.

8. What I'm Watching/Reading:

I'm reading The Language of Flowers by V. Diffenbaugh for my book club this Sunday.  I have also been posting my books on my Instagram account here.
For watching, I am catching up on New Amsterdam, Project Runway All-Stars, and will start Queer Eye season 3 this weekend.

9. What I'm Listening To:

I have been listening to audiobooks in the car and just started The Book of Life. It's the third in the All Souls Trilogy. During work, I listen to podcasts and my favorites are all in this post.

10. What I'm Wearing:

The weather has been so wonky here it's been a mix of items but I have loved this tank at Old Navy for Barre3 classes. It's on sale today for under $10!

11. What I'm Doing this Weekend:

I was originally headed to the Come to the Table Tour in Kernersville, NC however, the event was canceled as Angie Smith's father's health took a turn. Instead, this weekend will be filled with cuddling some dogs I'm watching, barre3 classes, and book club.

12. What I'm looking Forward to next month:

Lots of lunches with friends I am pinning down
Visiting my friend/sorority sister/former roommate Bekah in Winston-Salem
Hitting 200 Barre3 classes at the Chapel Hill studio
ordering my new simplified planner

13. What Else is New?

The last time I posted I was 28 and I enjoyed my birthday at the end of January with friends and my parents.

Bonus Question: Favorite Easter Side Dish?

We are simple with Easter meals so I mostly remember deviled eggs made out of the eggs we dyed and mashed potatoes.
