I didn’t realize it had been almost a month since my last post. Oops.
Things have been pretty busy now that my nephews are in town. I was off from work last week and just hung out with them. It’s been quite entertaining. At 2yrs old and 6yrs old, they’re both full of energy. I give much credit to the parents out there, especially when it comes to meltdowns. Oh my goodness, Ray (the 2yr old), will fall out over the littlest things! It’s funny and frustrating at the same time.
Even though I’ve been keeping busy with the kids, I’m still getting workouts in. I have an ortho appt for my shoulder next month so I’m mainly just doing cardio and lower body workouts. I miss weights!
In addition to my DietBet, I’m also currently doing a StepBet. I can’t remember what week I’m on but this has kept me moving and making sure I meet my daily steps goals. Playing Pokémon Go has helped too!
I made a vision board for myself the other day. I’m using it to track my weight and weekly goals. I’ll also wrote a motivational quote each week. It’s super simple right now but I like how it came out. I have a photo of Serena Williams because she is my body inspiration. The paper heart is from my first round of the 28-Day Jumpstart with the Fitgirls Guide. Haha, I tried to blur out my childhood wallpaper. 🙂
On the reading front, I’m still reading a lot. I’m currently 11 books ahead of my Goodreads goal.
I had to leave Uprooted by Naomi Novik unfinished. I just couldn’t get into the story. There were many good reviews and I really wanted to like it but it just didn’t happen.
An Echo of Bone (#7) – Diana Gabaldon — I love the Outlanders series so much I don’t want it to end!
Glass Sword (#2) – Victoria Aveyrd — I enjoyed the first book in this series but have yet to get hooked to the second book. I’m only about 60 pages in so there’s still time.
Cress (#3) – Marissa Meyer — just started this one but I loved the first two books and I don’t think this one will disappoint.
Alexander Hamilton — Ron Chernow — I’m embarrassed to say I’m still reading this! The book isn’t boring or anything but I keep getting drawn to my fiction books. I’m aiming to finish this by end of August.
Have an awesome day, Friday will be here soon!
