Good morning ladies & gents!
Sarah update: Wellll… this week was a BLUR! Basically, a routine visit to the doctor’s office on Monday resulted in a bit of an eye-opener when they weighed me. (My goodness, I hate that part.) I knew that I’ve gained some (a lot) weight, especially since I switched to this job about 2 years ago, but still. Actually seeing the scale come out at “190″ resulted in a bit of a panic attack on my part. I’m only 5’2″, I CANNOT let myself get to 200 lbs. Just absolutely cannot happen. So, I don’t even have a choice about it anymore – I have to lose some weight and get back in shape. That same day I downloaded the MyFitnessPal app on my phone (my name on there is SarahCLS, if anyone else uses it too) and started working out.
I’m not going to turn my blog into some sort of “weight-loss journey” crap, cause that is BORING. But I am going to sporadically mention any exciting updates. So far I’ve lost 1 lb. Ideally, I’d be around 160 – that’s about where I was at before I took this job, and I was okay with that. I’m trying to focus more on just being healthy and strong rather than my exact weight though. I’d just like to be able to survive in a zombie apocalypse.
I’m feeling pretty good so far – I already feel a little better, and I’m not even THAT miserable at having to watch what I eat or go work out. In fact, working out has been kind of fun so far. I can’t wait to get my own gym membership, but until then I go workout as a guest with my sis or the honeyman. AND the honeyman bought me Skele-toes running shoes (the ones with the separate toes) and I can’t wait to try them out. The ONLY downside to all this being healthy crap is the hour or two I use up in exercising – cause normally I’d be sitting on my ass, drinking coffee and reading or messing around online. But on the plus-side, now when I’m singing “Sexy and I Know It” by LMFAO and I get to the “I work ouuut” part, it’s true. So you know, there’s that.
So, that’s my big life-change update. Fun. OH and even more importantly, I discovered this week that there’s finally a Pinterest app for Droid! How did I miss this??? I will be pinning ALL THE TIME.
I also got to hang out with my sister Heather this week, which included going to a jewelry party at her house and I got to bring Steph with me to that, which was fun! Yay for real-life blogging buddies Also, it’s date night tonight and I’m excited to go out and see a movie or something and just generally spend some time with the honeyman, cause it’s been a hectic week.
I just realized how giant my hand looks in this picture, lol. It’s cause it’s so close to the mirror, I swear.
Bookish update: I’ve started reading Shadow of Night, which is the sequel to A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness. I’m over halfway through it and it’s pretty good, though it started off a little slow. And in the next couple days I’ll be reading the last section for The Moonstone readalong! How sad that it’s almost over.
Other than that, there’s not a whole else to report! Since I’m making September readalong-free, I was thinking of re-reading A Breath of Snow & Ashes, which is the sixth Outlander book. It’d be nice if I could finish my re-read of the whole series (to-date) by the end of the year.
So that’s been my week! How are you guys doing? Any fun plans for this week?
