Good morning everybody!
Sarah update: Crap this has been the longest week ever. So let’s see, I worked 5 days, had Wednesday off, and then had to work Thursday through tomorrow (another 5 days). 10 shifts in 11 days SUCKS. But after Monday my schedule will go back to normal and I’ll have a couple of days off. Phew!
So yeah, sorry I haven’t really been around this week… my life has basically been go to work, go to the gym, go home and sleep; repeat. On my one day off, I had to run some errands and do laundry, so I really only had a free couple hours and I chose to be lazy and read on the couch with Gabby. It was awesome. Poor Gabby, I think she misses me being around more during the day. On my day off she totally just followed me around everywhere and laid on me whenever I wasn’t doing anything. She’s so adorable.
Tonight is date night, but it’ll be a short date night since I have to come back to work at 2 am. We’ve decided to stay home, make shredded chicken tacos, and watch season 5 of The Big Bang Theory. I’m SOOOO looking forward to a few hours home alone with the honeyman. We’ve hardly seen each other this week. And normally we like to at least go out to dinner on date night, but I didn’t want to have to share him with anyone else so we decided to eat at home
On the weight loss front, as of this morning I’m down a total of 8.6 lbs. I’m FINALLY losing the desire to freaking talk about it constantly, since working out and stuff is becoming more of a routine. My jeans are fitting a little better, so that’s cool. On a more depressing side though, I’m down a bra size. Granted, it’s the size I was a couple of years ago before I gained so much weight, but now I’m terrified it’s going to keep going down and that will just be sad. Plus, I’ll eventually have to go buy new ones and bras are expensive. Well, at least they are if you buy good ones and want a big selection. Okay, enough about bras.
Bookish update: I figured that a re-read would be a good idea while I was working all these hours, so I picked the 6th Outlander book (A Breath of Snow and Ashes) and finished it on Saturday. *Sigh* I love Jamie and Claire. AND I was able to read a whole other book on Saturday – Radioactive: Marie and Pierre Curie: A Tale of Love and Fallout by Lauren Redniss. It was about 200 pages, and mostly art and illustrations, but it tells the story of how Marie and Pierre got together and fell in love and how much they contributed to science with their studying radium and stuff. It was a VERY cool book. So see, even though I was MIA pretty much all week, at least I’m coming back this week with at least two reviews to write! Yay.
And now I’m starting to read Drop Dead Healthy by A.J. Jacobs. I really like this author, ever since his first book (I believe) called The Know-It-All, in which he set out to read the entire Encyclopaedia Britannica. It was hilarious, but also nerdy and informative. Then he wrote a book called The Year of Living Biblically, in which he tried to follow the Bible as literally as possible, and that was cool (and the part where he wasn’t allowed to sit anywhere his wife already sat because she may be “unclean” was hysterical). I think he wrote a book called My Life as An Experiment, but I haven’t gotten to that one yet. And now Drop Dead Healthy is about him trying to be like the healthiest person ever, and I figured now was a good time to read it, considering my whole losing-weight kick.
I’m expecting a good laugh
Soooo that’s my update! Not much happening here. Over the next couple days I’m going to try to get online more to catch up on reading blogs and replying to comments and such.
Hope everyone is having an awesome weekend!
