Normally I do my Monday Meanderings posts on Monday but Independence Day intervened. Hope everyone had a good 4th; mine was quiet and full of book-reading as per the usual
Not going to lie, kind of in shock that we are in the month of July already! The summer is in full gear now, right? I see more trips to the community pool and trips to the beach in my future, especially since the kiddo goes back to school in mid-August which honestly, seems right around the corner.
I have been wearing the living-H outta my library card already and I just finished The Mystery of Hollow Places and this one ripped my heart out a bit. But I guess it is because the main character of the book and I have a lot in common and there were way too many similarities between her life and mine and I felt as though someone had glimpsed into my life and took parts of it and wrote a book. Seriously…
On the weight loss front, I am down 26 pounds now! Yay! Guys, I am so proud of myself and I know that there are some days where I just want to put my face in a bowl of tortilla chips and be left alone, but I continue to persevere and that in and of itself, is quite an accomplishment I don’t have a set goal or target weight in mind, and I know plateauing is a common thing and the weight loss might start ceasing to being only ounces and I understand that. I just want to be healthy and be able to keep up with my daughter and not have knee pain from being heavier. I gained an insane amount of weight when I was living in Oregon, so I am glad to be getting back to where I am more comfortable. Literally and figuratively 😉
Has anyone watched The Imitation Game with Benedict Cumberbatch? I know it is like 2 years old or something by now, but I am going to finally watch it this week and just want to know if it lives up to the hype.
How is everything going in your neck of the woods?
