Reading I think I’m officially out of my reading slump, having torn through most of this book over the past 5 days. I can’t vouch for the ending yet (I’m 75% through) but — what a great reading experience. The writing reminds me a bit of Frederik Backman, but I dare say I like it even more.
(Thank you readers for this recommendation!)
((PS: I am reading this on my phone for the sake of pure convenience and because I did not have patience to wait for a physical book to arrive, in the mail or from the library.))
Workouts I’m sort of stuck in a 21 Day Fix rut. I’ve been going to my ‘live’ workouts 1-2x/week, but am not thrilled about how long the whole process takes on weekdays – basically 80 minutes when driving time is included. So I may rethink my membership.
I am considering diving into 80 Day Obsession — a longer workout program with the same trainer as my beloved 21 Day Fix (LOVE Autumn Calabrese). This seems like a fun summer project. BUT I still want to incorporate running because those are the most relaxing ‘treat’ workouts to me. So maybe I’ll do an extended 80DO with runs mixed in!?
If anyone has experience/wise words to impact, I’ll take them. (As usual, not planning on any of the nutritional stuff / supplements / etc).
Cookbook I read about it on The Frugal Girl, and was sold by her enthusiastic endorsement (since the FG is — well, frugal — I figured her threshold for book purchase is high).
I now own this book and love it too. It has detailed pictures of every recipe, the meals are generally very kid-friendly, and — my favorite part — the ingredients lists are all very SHORT!
I don’t cook very often, but even I was motivated to make Sunday dinner from this book (flank steak + corn served with roasted asparagus – my addition). We had the chicken & orzo soup from this book the past 2 nights and both A&C loved it. And last week we tried a chicken with farro salad recipe that was excellent. This book is now sharing ‘favorite’ status with my 2 volumes of Run Fast Eat Slow.
Looking forward to
parenting book club 🙂

I need a new juicy “story” type podcast though! Recs welcome 🙂
