7/21-23

 

Workout:

Friday night I got more color on my tattoo, so no workouts this weekend. Though our gym was closed on Saturday anyway. Took Sadie to the closer dog park on and the far dog park on Sunday. She loves the far dog park because she gets to swim.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Goal 1: Take care of my back by doing more movement throughout the day.

Weekend did all of my movement work 

 

Goal 2: Track food, hit calorie goals.

boy do i suck at doing my other meditations. 

Today I have my PT appointment and next Thursday I am getting more vaccinations!

I finished The Wise Man's Fear the other night and now I'm bummed that I don't have another book I'm looking forward to so much. Anyone have any good fiction suggestions? I've read ALL Sanderson, and Rothfuss (except for the slow regard... saving that for my trip.) But don't generally skew towards fantasy. Favorite author is Margaret Atwood.

i'm halfway through Wise Man's Fear, so good! I did read Atwood's The Robber Bride recently and it was pretty good. I will always suggest the Iron Druid Chronicles though :P the author recently went on tour for a few stops with Rothfuss actually!

 

I'm enjoying Dark Matter right now but haven't finished so can't fully recommend!

I read Geek Love by Katherine Dunn this spring after years and years of people recommending it to me and I adored it. It's about a circus "freak" family.

I will have to add that to my list! Night Circus comes to mind as being in the same vein.

STOP HAVING READ ALL OUR RECOMMENDATIONS :P 

 

If you're into detective books I liked the first of Karin Slaughter's Will Trent series, Triptych

OR The Cuckoo's Calling by Robert Galbraith (aka JK Rowling)

 

The Passage was a really good science based apocalyptic triology...

 

just come visit me on goodreads lol https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/27753292-courtnie-marie

Hahah. Seriously.

 

If you like space opera meets Hunger Games, Red Rising is very, very good. The rest of the trilogy is also solid, but the first one is excellent.
