What is your name and where are you currently?
Are you where you normally live?
I moved here from New York with my husband, Henry, about a month before the pandemic, so it's where we live but I'm not sure it feels "normal" yet!
What are you currently reading?
The Mirror and The Light by Hilary Mantel.
What are you currently watching?
The Sopranos. My favorite part is spotting all the actors who play minor love interests on Sex and The City show up as mafia extras.
What are you currently listening to?
I'm writing my second novel and one of the main characters is a professional boxer, so it's a lot of "pump up" songs I imagine she'd listen to.
What have you been eating the most? Do you have a recipe to share?
I'm not proud of this, but I've been eating a lot of BabyBel cheese. I know I'm eating it "the most" because there was a game on Instagram a few weeks ago where you combine your emotional state with the last thing you ate, and mine was always BabyBel. So I've been "hopeful BabyBel", "restless Babybel", "PMSing Babybel"...Basically, more states of BabyBel than any adult woman should reasonably ever be.
How are you moving your body/exercising?
I do Modo Yoga and I've also started doing The Class by Taryn Toomey every weekday at 8am. I initially rolled my eyes at its intense earnestness, but I now find myself really looking forward to starting my day doing jumping jacks while "shining my inner light" or whatever.
Also, once a week I submit to doing an outdoor HIIT workout with sporty Henry using the Nike Training app. I've discovered HIIT feels a bit like having a heart attack and an orgasm at the same time, which is not entirely unpleasant.
