It's Monday, What Are You Reading? / #FitReaders Check In - September 5, 2016

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 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:
Commonwealth by Ann Patchett
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.

Somebody Like You (Sugar Shack #3) by Candis Terry
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.

The Bitch is Back: Older, Wiser, and (Getting) Happier by Cathi Hanauer (ed).
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!

Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow
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:
The Perfect Girl by Gilly Macmillan (finished 9/4, review 9/15)
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.
