Five Things I cannot live without:

  1. My sweet family.

  4. Running. (And really, really good running shoes)

  5. Appliances- specifically my washing machine and dishwasher. What time savers!

I did six minutes of a 15 minute arm workout this morning. So. Many. Pushups. I know I need to do them and I’m working up to it. My last core workout I managed to make it 24 minutes before falling prey to exhaustion. A little more each day, that’s the goal. Strength, bit by bit. I’m amazed at what can be done at home without equipment to get you started. I mean, SWorkit is trying to kill me.

I should have gone into the office today, but there’s a slight chance of ice, I am overwhelmed with grad school work, and I have THINGS TO DO that will not get done if I am in the office chatting with my team. A responsible decision but I also feel quasi-bad about not going in when we so rarely see each other. Okay. Twice a week isn’t RARE, but still.

I haven’t weighed in for several weeks and usually do that on Tuesday mornings. I kind of don’t want to know. Which probably means I need to just check in with the scale. All my clothes still fit and I’m working out more than ever, so there’s that.

I stayed up entirely too late last night reading The 13th Tale. I absolutely LOVED the language. What beautifully crafted sentences and paragraphs. The storyline took a while to hook me, but once it did I was pleasantly carried along until the end. I have to say that I was left feeling a little lackluster at the ending, though. I don’t know why, either. Most of the readers I really respect gave it high marks on Goodreads and I was kind of “Meh.” and rated it three stars.

 I’m thinking I want to splurge on Station 11 as my next book. Or maybe throw in another lesbian romance for fluff. I also want to read The Book of Strange New Things. And neither of THOSE is on my 2015 reading challenge list!

What are you all reading?
