I hope all of you in the US (and wherever else it is celebrated) enjoyed your Labor Day weekend. It is Sunday night as I type this and, so far, we've had a very quiet weekend. If I can be caught up with the laundry by the time the kids go back to school on Tuesday, then this weekend will have been a win!
I've got to be honest...no check in here. This past week was a stressful one due to a family sittuation and meeting #FitReaders goals just didn't make the priority list. However, I do want to put up my September goals. I've back off on some of these from previous months, just because I want to focus on consistency.
1 - 70,000 Steps a Week
2 - 3 Strength Training Sessions
I did go up on this one, only because I've found a 12 week beginner strength training plan, which calls for 3 sessions a week.
3 - At least 6.5 hours of sleep a night
My ultimate goal is to get up to 8 hours a night, but I have to work up to it. Right now, I'm getting too many 5 hour nights.
So, next week there will be an actual check in....I promise!
Right now, I'm reading:
I haven't actually started this yet....but I will tonight. And I have no clue what it is about! Ann Patchett is one of those authors whose books I'll read no matter what, so I'm really looking forward to this one.
I didn't make much progress on this one, thanks to all the other drama going on--and I didn't have "waiting for the kids" situations this week. So, for most the week, my Kindle just stayed inside my purse.
This is another one that had to take a back burner this week...but this time it was less because of the "family situation" and more because I was just really into another book (which I'll talk about below). Now worries, I'm getting back to this one tonight!
I'm not sure if I'll finish this by 12/31 as I had hoped...but I'm still working on it!
Last week, I finished reading:
I don't want to say too much about this before my review....but it did suck me in very quickly. It is categorized as a thriller, but I found it much more character-driven than many thrillers I've read.
