My not so regular check in

First…

This is meant to be an easy breezy place to read mindless content ūüôā ¬†(yes, I’m calling myself mindless). ¬†Hopefully you get the idea.

Phew…

So let’s talk books. ¬†I LOVE to read. ¬†When I’m travelling I read a ton. ¬†When I’m not travelling I typically read before bed. ¬†Sometimes I get 20 pages in, sometimes I get 2 pages in and fall asleep mid-sentence. ¬†Either way, reading at night helps quiet my mind and allow me to let the day go.

I innocently downloaded a book from the library and have been reading it for a couple of weeks now.

I didn’t really know much about it, but the little blurb sounded interesting enough.

I had just read on a blog that it had some really disturbing parts and I came to see some of that. ¬†The book was very slow moving for me. ¬†I felt like I had been reading it forever and was just barely at 40% completion. ¬†I wasn’t enjoying it but wanted to keep going and give it a shot.

Until last night. ¬†There was a plot twist. ¬†When that happened, I pretty much gave up. ¬†I just can’t read this book. ¬†Quite honestly I think it’s pretty horrible.

I will admit that I’m very picky about books and it’s rare that I rave about a book. ¬†Most books are a solid 3 stars to me. ¬†That said, it’s rare that I hate a book. ¬†Enter Pretty Girls. ¬†Ugh.

It has made me mad and then I get mad at myself that I’m still thinking about this stinking book. ¬†ARGH! ¬†ūüôā

Have you read it?  if you liked it, please tell me why.

So aside from my apparent book fueled aggression, things are just fine.

On the wedding front we booked a venue so we have a place and a date.  Phew.  That was the biggest one to check off the list because it was the most challenging.  Now to find a way to cut down the guest list.  Easier said than done.

My hope is that people understand. ¬†While it’s great to be invited to a wedding, sometimes it’s not so bad to not be invited (in my opinion). ¬†Has anyone had to deal with cutting friends/family from an event? ¬†How did it go?

I’m thinking that if i’m honest people will understand and if they don’t understand then maybe the relationship wasn’t so great to start.

On the fitness front things are going OK. ¬†Off to a slightly slower start but still an improvement over where I was a few weeks ago, so that’s good.

I have been managing to get my two OTF workouts in each week, which is great.  Last Thursday I took a 5:15a class (I usually do the 5:30a class on Wed/Fri). It was a great class, but setting your alarm for 4:45 is not so fun.

In terms of OTF, the morning classes are pretty crowded so they changed them to a 3G format which means three groups, instead of the usual two. ¬†So there’s a group that starts on the treadmills, the rowers, and the weight room. One morning I ended up in the weight room because everything else was full and I ended up loving it. ¬†I almost feel like starting with weights gives my body a chance to wake up and prepare for the cardio. ¬†Make any sense?

So that’s what’s going on with me. ¬†Have a wonderful week!
