Hello.

How’s your weekend so far? Well, I’m drafting this post on a Saturday (the week past) because I’m trying to catch up. I had this scheduled last week but that was a hectic week for me and my family that I didn’t get to actually write the post. I only downloaded the picture but didn’t touch it.

Life Lately

So yes, it’s been an incredibly busy week for us. One of the reasons why I wasn’t able to drop by your blogs was that I was trying to reach a fitness milestone at my gym. I set out a goal to be the first person to have taken a thousand classes, so I did. I reached it two weeks before my one year anniversary.

I battled with all kinds of aches and pains throughout but the reward of bragging rights made it all worth it. Lol. Besides the fact that it helped me lose 50 lbs and gain an incredible amount of self-confidence in the process, that is. My next goal is to lose more. I need to lose 20 more lbs but I’m having a tougher go at it this time. My self-control with food on the weekends isn’t as great as it used to be. So losing a couple of pounds during the week is usually negated by the time Monday rolls around. Story of my life.

Ah Spring. The sounds of birds, the open windows, the annoying allergies. It’s been awful this year, to tell you the truth. I often wake up with puffy eyes and stuffed up nose. I can’t go outside so my step count stats are suffering. Sigh.

On Reading

I’m continually making great strides. With the help of audiobooks, romance novels on my Kindle, and actually finding an efficient way to use my time, I’m able to get back on the saddle again.

On Blogging

I’ve actually sat down and created a schedule for myself. I’m happy to announce that I’ve got a full schedule for May. That is, I’m hoping I’ll be able to sit down and draft the posts I wanted to go up.

This is it for me, y’all. Let me know if you’ve read any of the books on my stack. I’m keen to read the James Comey tell all first but I have a few books to get through first.

Happy reading!
