  • I love my new job, and I love that I’m getting a lot more steps every day!
  • I’m now logging my food and tracking my weight, BMI, and body fat percentage.  I won’t put any of that info in these posts, but I am much more serious about improving my health and fitness. I might add how much weight I’ve lost each week, but I haven’t made a decision about that quite yet.

#24in48 Readathon – Nighty Night, Y'all!

We have reached the end of the 24 in 48 readathon.  I’m going to bed after a well-deserved weekend of reading.

Final Update
I listened to nearly half of Redshirts while I ignored the rest of the world.  I also spent quite a bit of time reading Wizard and Glass, but I’m still about 150 pages from the end.

While I didn’t meet my goal of finishing 3 books, and I didn’t get anywhere near reading for 24 hours, I did have a great time, and I turned more pages than I would have this weekend without the readathon. I know I’ll finish Wizard and Glass this week, probably by Tuesday.
In the Middle of Reading:

  • Wizard and Glass by Stephen King
  • Redshirts by John Scalzi

Total Pages Read: 247
Time Read: 6 hours 2 minutes
Total Time Read: 14 hours and 3 minutes
Goodnight, Y’all!

#24in48 Readathon – Hour 36!

Only 12 more hours to go until we reach the end of the 24 in 48 readathon.

Update #3
I did not finish Wizard and Glass before I fell asleep.  Not even close.

I’ve got some cleaning to do today, so I will be switching over to an audiobook.  Most likely Redshirts by John Scalzi.

#24in48 Readathon – Hour 12!

It’s hour 12 of the 24 in 48 readathon and here’s my first update!

Update #1
Since the official start time was 12 am EST and I live in California, I had intended to read a bit before I went to bed.  Unfortunately, that didn’t happen.  Instead, I realized just how exhausted I was from an extremely busy week at my new job, and decided to go to sleep early.
I also didn’t read this morning because I was busy getting ready to get out the door to meet with a friend for brunch.  I swear I will read A LOT before my next update, but until then, below is what I intended to read.
Current Read: Wizard and Glass by Stephen King

Pages Read: 0
Time Read: 0
My next update will be at 9 pm Pacific time, and I’m sure I’ll have much more to share!  See you then 🙂
