Hi! It seems like we ended the weekend and just side-stepped Monday. At least, to me, Monday flew by, which is why we didn’t find a new blog post yesterday. The highlight of yesterday was my getting a new winter’s jacket because my old one met its demise in a washer with a pen. It was a white coat. I don’t think I’ll be washing my new one.
Here’s how I started my Tuesday morning. Scrambled eggs, French toast, and berries.
Sometimes, you just need to spice up that toast.
Yesterday’s workout consisted of strength training. I did a lot of cardio on Sunday with a run, so I hit my triceps, chest, legs, and core. Part of it was done with a friend from work, which makes it more fun! For the first time, I did some work on the TRX bands, so that’s something I want to look into more.
Now onto the day’s most surprising moment: I finished a book!
It seems like it’s been forever since I’ve read something other than a textbook (all with good purpose), so it was a little strange (and delightful) to jump back into the world of fiction. I love that I can connect to the library on my iPad and I spent some quality time a few days ago just browsing all the titles available. Many of the books I wanted to read needed to be put on hold and I’m just hoping they don’t all come at once.
First to pop up was Jojo Moyes’ Me Before You. Going into it, I didn’t know much about it other than that it was “sad.” While I thought the premise had its tragic moments, I think it delved into some important political issues that people don’t want to talk about. I really can’t dive in too deep so as not to spoil, so I will just recommend that you read it yourself. You will feel sad, but also inspired.
And also, apparently, I have stellar timing because the movie version is coming out in March. Go me!
