1- I finished (and loved) Lessons in Chemistry. SO GOOD.
In 2022, I have read 22 books so far (tracked here!). I went through a total reading (and life) slump Jan – April, and then between May and now have read 15 of those 22. Interesting!
One major change I made was to start reading more on my phone or kindle while lying in bed with G. I resisted screen reading for so long and still really enjoy paper, but admittedly it is so incredibly convenient. And the Libby app is like magic!
2- I bought nothing on Prime day or the Nordstrom sale.
No, instead all $$$ has been put towards future travel recently. I actually try NOT to buy clothing on sale unless I’m restocking something I know I love. I end up getting sucked in and purchasing things that don’t serve me and ultimately it’s a waste of $.
Also, WOW the comments on yesterday’s post are fascinating! Thank you all for chiming in and adding to the conversation!
3- I am doing very well with my quest to check email/inputs less often . . . until about 1-2 pm every day. That seems to be when my brain runs out of some sort of chemical that promotes discipline and resolve. I guess that is still progress!
4- I am so excited to see A&C in two days!!!! (AND to get a 3-day couples trip in there too – G is staying home with our nanny, and she is excited too).
In case anyone is worried, they appear (from pix) to be having a blast.
5- I officially took my ‘strength test’, completing TS with Andy #2! I am going to try the new “3 day splits” and do some more runner-specific workouts on the Peloton app for a while, and at some point will also try Caroline Girvan’s Iron Series.
AND I still have marathon thoughts. Maybe a local one this Feb, still contemplating! I do think I will do a half in late fall either way. And on that note, I am off to get ~6 mi in this morning! Happy Friday – my playlist includes 3 favorites, Happier, No Stupid Questions, and New Music Friday, in that order. I’m excited.
