I listened to some of Chapter and Hearse by Lorna Barrett while I did my weekend chores and ran errands.  Once everything was done, I dipped into The Princess Bride by William Goldman.  I finished the book itself, but the edition I’m reading has another section afterward which includes “Buttercup’s Baby.”  I’m hoping to finish it and Chapter and Hearse before tonight.

I listened to some of Chapter and Hearse by Lorna Barrett during my commute to and from work and I finished How to Be a Heroine by Samantha Ellis.  I also decided to use my Friday night (when the Boyfriend has his game night) to go through my shelves and read/skim through a whole stack of books that were very important to me during my 20s but were probably no longer useful to me now.  As a result, I have no idea how long I read, but there are now ten more books in the box that will go to the used bookstore when it’s full.  I think I’m done with culling my shelves in large chunks, and I’ll only be adding to the box as I finish books from my TBR that I don’t want to keep.  At least for a couple more years.  I wonder how many more books will I outgrow during my life?

#FitReaders Check-In

FitReaders2016
  • This check-in is for August 19th – 25th.
  • My goal for this week was 8K steps per day.  This was yet another bad week thanks to not feeling well.  However, I’ve signed up for a free health and fitness program offered through my job’s health insurance.  I’ve got an appointment on Monday and I should be able to start the program shortly after that.  I’m hoping it works better than the one I was on through the VA.
  • My best day was Thursday when the Boyfriend and I went for a walk together after dinner.  Even though I didn’t meet my step goal, I did meet my active minutes goal for the day.  I also walked up more flights of stairs than on any other day, and that’s the only reason I met my stairs goal for the week.
  • I’m going to try for 8K steps per day again, but my goal(s) might change depending on how the program works.
  • If you’d like to add me as a friend on FitBit, you can find me HERE.
  • Steps: 24,415/49,000
  • Miles: 10.04/17.5

The Princess Bride by William Goldman is much easier to read during my breaks at work, so I focused on that instead of How to Be a Heroine by Samantha Ellis.  I’m hoping to finish both this weekend and maybe listen to the rest of Chapter and Hearse by Lorna Barrett while I do my weekly cleaning.

I wasn’t feeling well, so I called in sick from work.  After I finally got out of bed, I finished The Fellowship of the Ring and then Feed by Mira Grant.  I also read quite a bit of How to Be a Heroine by Samantha Ellis.

I mostly just listened to Chapter and Hearse by Lorna Barrett during my commute to and from work, but I did get some of The Fellowship of the Ring read before I went to bed.  Not bad for the first day.
