I crack up everytime I see this meme, lol.
It’s been about a month and a half since I last posted, things have been pretty busy. I started a post at the beginning of the month but at the time, I just didn’t have anything to say so I deleted it.
Anyway, here’s the latest…
I passed my six month probation at work on April 2nd and it was a wonderful feeling. I had no doubt I was going to pass but it’s nice to have that confirmation. Things are going great at my library. While the LA County library system is quite large, my particular library is very small. I’ve come to know many of the patrons and often greet them by name every time they come in. I enjoy going to work everyday and there’s always something to do. It’s almost May so right now I’m really busy with preparing for the Summer Reading program as well as weeding all of the children’s and teen books. It’s great because there is always something to do.
Fitness & Nutrition
Wellll, on the fitness side of things, I’ve been doing great! I completed a 6 week RunBet in March and will finish up another one tonight. RunBet is similar to StepBet where instead of having a certain number of steps each day, you run a certain mileage amount each day. The current RunBet I am doing is a little easier than my last one, you just have to run (or walk) for 30 minutes, four times a week, for four weeks. I just have to make sure my pace is at 18 minutes per mile or less. I’ve been averaging 14 minutes so I’m doing ok. I have another half marathon on May 6th so I’m hoping all this extra running will help me improve my time.
I’ve also been going to Orangetheory about three times a week. They recently had an 8 week transformation challenge and while I didn’t come close to winning, I didn’t gain anything! Haha. That’s saying a lot since my eating hasn’t been the greatest. I can’t remember if I mentioned starting Weight Watchers again but I did back in December and I just don’t think it’s the program for me. Yes, they changed the program and allow many more zero point foods but many of the foods I eat are too high in points. I am going to finish out my six month commitment and then I will be canceling. Sucks because I bought this really cute folder to keep all of my meeting materials.
A friend of mine recently gave me a free week of Hello Fresh so I will be trying that out this week. My two meals will be delivered tomorrow. The goal is to use the meals for my lunch so I don’t have the need to go out. It’s funny, I’ll be doing awesome the first half of the week but once Thursday hits, I fall off the wagon. I won’t even mention how much I spent at 7-Eleven in the month of April, lol. I’ve banned myself from there this week so lets see how that goes.
As of right now, I’ve read 24 books for the year. Lately I’ve had all of my library holds come through at the same time so I’ve been reading constantly. My longer commute allows for me to listen to more audiobooks so that’s nice. My current reads are Well of Ascension by Brandon Sanderson, I’ll Be Gone in the Dark by Michelle McNamara (I’m reading this one with a whole new perspective now that the killer has actually been caught!), Call Me By Your Name by Andre Aciman, and Sometimes the Wolf by Urban Waite.
I think that is all for now — Happy Sunday!
