Food Reviews Lyfe Thinking Out Loud

Currently in Suz’s Lyfe : Podcasts, Nail Polish, and Struggles


What is currently going on in Suz’s Lyfe? I thought I would take a little time and tell you! 

Let’s start with the ick, because I want to get it out of the way and move on to fun things.

Current Headache:

An actual headache thanks to crazy weather changes (writing this on Wednesday). But the real headache? The fact that we now don’t have a kitchen. And we live in a rental. And no, we can’t move out. And currently, they are thinking this might be for WEEKS. SO FUN.

The disaster that is my kitchen. FML

This is my kitchen. #FML

Current Struggle:

I am feeling confident about myself as a runner, but I am struggling with self doubt and self confidence + getting my head on track with regards to business. I have dedicated July to getting back on track, in general. Both with regards to physical and fitness goals as well as personal and professional goals. I felt super triumphant yesterday because I took care of a big chunk of my to-do list (mostly calling doctors and things like that), but let’s be honest, I didn’t even make a dent in the big picture goals. Professionally, I need to start getting ready for August and September–it might seem a long ways off, but I want to start figuring out where I am going with everything–blog, coaching, training–so that I can make real and meaningful progress this late summer and fall.

Psst–thinking about getting a running coach? Wondering what a running coach does? Let’s talk. Thinking you don’t need a running coach? Let’s talk anyway!

Current nail polish:

Julep America nail polish

America by Julep. I wore it for Memorial Day and put it back on for 4th of July! Going to be changing it soon, though.

Current Drink:

La Croix. Can’t stop, won’t stop. I’m going through coconut like it is my job, and then passion fruit. 

Current Refuel:

Could supplementing with collagen peptides help your running as well as your skin and nails? Find out at this week's Running Coaches Corner!

You know the answer to this: Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides Green Smoothie. Alex and I are obsessed.

Current HOLY CRAP moment:



HOLY CRAP Blogfest and Idea World are next week! Check out my recap of last year, all the people I met, what I ate, and what I took away from the conference and expo. I can’t wait to room with Renee, Jess, and Ashley and see some incredible friends!

Current Fitness Goals Status:

Amita Health Fitness For America Half Marathon is going to be my first half marathon since my back fracture and my husband's first race ever!

Find out my Summer Fitness Goals here. I did a hill running workout on the tmill last week and this week, and I have incorporated heavier lifts into my strength workouts! And…. drumroll please…. I signed up for my first race! If you live in the Chicago area, come and join me for the Amita Health Fitness for America Half Marathon, 10k and 5k at Hoffman Estates July 23! I will be doing the half marathon and Alex will do the 10k (we will run the first 5 miles together). My goal is to finish strong, uninjured, and happy, and, if possible, to finish under 2 hours. 

Currently Listening:

I'm Currently loving Lindsey Hein's I'll Have Another podcast! What are you currently loving?

To podcasts (loving I’ll Have Another with Lindsey Hein) and country (Maren Morris).

Currently on Speed Dial:

My mom. Tons going on, and I’ve needed her to discuss things and for moral support.

Currently Missing:

My wedding rings! We are supposed to get them back on Friday at 6 PM. I miss having my rings! It has taken way too long to get them taken care of.
