I’m just swinging by to say hi!
My week is still crazy, I’ve been doing 10-hour days and haven’t had much time to do more than work, eat, sleep and a half hour on the exercise bike.
I am making a point to go OUTSIDE during my lunches/breaks/etc., just to make sure it’s still summer!
This new workout routine I’m in is really doing it for me. I’m already down 6lbs, and my appetite/cravings have calmed down. Except the flourless chocolate cake on Monday (I got about a slice worth, and Kurt accidentally dropped it on the floor), I about cried. (Just kidding, Kurt!) It was probably for the best. *sigh*
I just need to move my workouts from evenings to mornings. I am still not being a very good *cheery* morning person, I value that extra 30 minutes of sleep like I do my Starbucks. There should be a law against merging into traffic with a coffee cup in hand…
I’m trying my ABSOLUTE best to not get sick! Iwillnotgetsick, I willnotgetsick. I will not get sick!!!! And every time I say that, I get some horrible contagious flu/bug/virus whatever that’s going around. I’m going with the theory of if I just keep plugging along, workingworkingworking, the adrenaline will keep me from crashing. My nursing degree tells me otherwise.
Summer Book Series:
I’m reading the Waverly series by Maria Murnane, which is turning out to be a fun summer read.
I tore through a couple of these books over consecutive weekends on the Kindle, and they’re pretty entertaining. I needed something light-hearted and witty after reading some of the psychological thrillers I’ve been into lately. This is just the remedy; she’s brutally honest and the entire time, it’s like revisiting a story by a good friend over coffee. The character is extremely relatable (we’ve all been in her shoes at one point or another). I just found the first few books to be extremely refreshing.
I’m currently reading Honey on Your Mind, which is the third (fourth?) book in the series. I’ll write a review once I’m done.
Anyway, that’s it for me tonight, I’m off to sleep and hoping I’ll shake this cold/flu I feel coming on. (Yikes!)
