This week is a fun one. I’m happy that GLEE is coming back. I’ve also already bought my tickets to see Kick-Ass on Thursday night.
So my weight loss is going well. As of yesterday I was down to 206. That’s 9 pounds and 9 books. Not too shabby so far!
What have I been doing differently? The first thing is that I’ve shut off the TV. Not completely, but I’m weening myself off of it. I mean, do I really care what happens on Grey’s Anatomy anymore? Not in the slightest. So I’ve cut out shows that I’m not completely interested in.
I’ve also been really enjoying fruit. Apples and oranges and pears and grapes. YUM! There are so many god fruits right now that I have trouble choosing. I’ve never been a huge orange fan (I hate seeds) until my friend Rach gave me one while I was at her house. Now I’m a convert. Love them. I’m actually going to go eat one right now.
My exercise has also been going well. Saturday, for the first time, I managed to jog my entire 3.5 miles without stopping to walk. Sure, my time sucked monkey butt, but when I started, I could barely finish a mile without stopping to die.
And that’s it. No crash diet, no pills. Just loads of healthy food and exercise.
But there’s one thing I could use some help with: On the days when my knees hurt too badly to run, I use my elliptical. I love reading my Kindle on it. So tell me what some of your favorite books are right now so that I can find something good to read. I’ve been reading a lot of realistic YA and I’m looking for something with more adventure.
Also, do you have any weight loss goals? What are they?
Tune back Wednesday. I’m going to talk about pacing in storytelling involving two books and two television shows I recently gave up on.
And don’t forget you can read CH 1 of The Deathday Letter and then enter to win an ARC.
