  2. Funny enough, I had my wisdom teeth out yesterday. I'm sore, but not in pain. The kidney stone pain went away for a few days before this. I just have a headache and want to sleep a lot. I didn't know that I'm not supposed to work out for a week after having them out so yet another week will go by without working out. However, I am sticking to my diet so I'm still losing and staying on track. I lost another pound so I'm down 28 pounds in 9.5 weeks or as I like to think of it: I'm halfway to my halfway pount. Now back to the couch to ice my face and maybe another nap.
  3. I've seen Middlemarch so I'm not overly enthused to read it, but it is on the list. As someone who just recently fell madly in love with The Count of Monte Cristo, may I say, I love your screen name!
  4. In case you needed proof of where I was in lieu of the gym this past weekend. This is the one that Katee Sackhoff retweeted.

  6. Turned out the flu symptoms that didn't want to go away were the pre-cursor to a kidney stone. That was an unpleasant surprise earlier this week. Feeling much better now. Still sore, but no more sharp stabby pain. Hopefully, this means I can get back to my normal self. While still no gym, I have been really good on the diet and have dropped 27 pounds now over the last 8.5 weeks. 7 of that in the last 10 days and all by eating healthy.
  7. Have you watched Thug Notes on Youtube? His critique of Jane Eyre made me like it a bit more.

  9. Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte - I liked her sister's book Jane Eyre better and am a HUGE Jane Austen fan, but I was just miserable throughout the whole book Brave New World by Aldous Huxley - I get its relevance, but I just couldn't get into it. I just wanted to read 1984 again instead On The Road by Jack Kerouac - It started off good, but it went nowhere. I can see being a teenager liking this book, but not reading it as an adult for the first time On flip side, I have recently fallen madly in love with The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas.
  10. Lost 2 pounds this week so far despite not making it to the gym because of being sick still. That is 23 pounds in 7.5 weeks!
  11. I hated a couple of the books from the BBC list so far and just was miserable. My friends kept saying then stop. I said, it is a quest and all quest have pitfalls or everyone would be doing them.
  12. I've been eyeing that list to do after I've finished the BBC Big Reads ones. It has some great stuff on it.
  13. So far I have lost 21 pounds in 7 weeks so I figured that seemed doable. May bad, 4x a week and of those 4 times have 1 or 2 of will be swimming. Although, not starting off great. Horrible head cold that won't seem to go away so I haven't made it to the gym yet.
  14. Thank you all! For the BBC Big Reads list, I started at 17 about a year and a half ago and now I am at 59. I have a lot of the really big books left. I recently finished Count of Monte Cristo, which I completely fell in love with. I have Possession coming from the library next week.
