Life Lately

My glamorous desk at work


I've been at my new job about 6 months now (when does it stop being new?).  I'm enjoying the change of pace and subject matter.  I've loved honing my SQL skills and dabbling in Python and R.  I also (rather surprisingly) don't mind the more professional attire requirements.  I think I'm the youngest on my team, so dressing like a grown-up helps me feel a little more confident (if that makes any sense?)  Overall it's been a really great change, although I do still really miss my old coworkers.  I made some very dear friends there, and while we stay in touch, grabbing coffee or lunch occasionally just isn't the same as seeing someone daily.

I've been pretty swamped with work lately, so cooking and eating healthy had definitely taken the back burner.  Earlier this month, I traveled for work a few days, and I signed up for HelloFresh to arrive the day I got back.  It was overall really great (any interest in an unbiased/not sponsored review?), and with the discount code I received, it was totally worth it!  I don't think I could justify full-price, but with work travel and a coupon code I would definitely do it again.  If you'd like to try it, you can use code 'JENNROBE64' for $40 off your first order (and you can skip or cancel anytime) making 3 meals for 2 people just $20.  Once my 3 meals were up, I had gotten back into the swing of cooking which was also a plus.


I just signed up for the same half marathon I've run a couple times, so I have just over 7 months to train.  I've missed running this Winter, although climbing has kept me pretty active.  Early last week I took a bit of a tumble climbing and sprained a rib, so as soon as that heals up, half marathon training will commence!  I'm excited to break in my new shoes as well.  I ordered a variety of options and settled on the Nike Air Pegasus 33 (the newer 34s have quite a few complaints online) and ON Cloudflyer.  Last year I wore and liked the Nike Free RNs as well, but I opted for a little more support.


I've been kind of boring with my beauty routine lately, but it's nice to have finally found a "favorite" of each of my everyday products.  (Would you guys want to see a post about those?)  I did try a sample of Drunk Elephant's B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Gel and loved it- but since dryness isn't an issue I face, I'm struggling to pull the trigger on a $52 moisturizer.  I also sampled Tarte's eye brightening cream, which is on my shortlist to buy now as well.
