Living life from cover to cover

Weekly six pack, 2017, v23

Trying to get back into the swing of things. It’s not going well but at least I get an A for effort. Hell, I’d settle for a C at this point. And average is good. 

Reading. Definitely not blogs but most certainly books. Plowing through The Good Daughter, picked up The Cleaner, and have only two more before I start to tackle the NetGalley queue. 

Watching. Um…nothing? I have this habit of bingeing on a few shows at once and then barely turning on the TV for weeks.  I have a few shows I DVR and then watch all on one day (currently: Ray Donovan, Snowfall, John Oliver) but that’s it. I couldn’t even tell you when a few of the shows I like to watch are starting and I know there’s one new one but if you gave me money I couldn’t name it. 

Eating. Now that I’ve finally detoxed from Twizzlers and Sour Patch Kids, I’m on the cheese and tomato train. And cashews. 

Raging. At the Mets. I have accepted that this year, they suck balls. Big time suck balls. It’s fine because it comes with the territory of being a Mets fan. It’s heartache and rage wrapped in a awesomeness and delight. HOWEVER. WHY ARE THEY TRADING AWAY EVERYONE WHO HELPS THEM BE BETTER ? They’ve majorly unloaded and it’s a horror show and I’m having a really hard time liking them right now. 

Running. No, that’s it. I’ve been running. I hate every single step and every single minute but my weight loss has stalled a bit and my boxing instructor said that running is a good way to kick it back in the ass (my words, not hers. She was more polite) and it seems to be working for the most part. We’ll see what happens. 

Wanting. All the things. I have a list of like 46 items I plan to buy as money allows because I am a girl whose wants are currently bigger than her budget. Why couldn’t this have happened back in June, when it was my birthday? Oh, well. Hanukkah and Christmas are soon.  

Quick admin note: in a few short weeks, they’ll be some aesthetic changes around these parts. I’m excited for them. Tanya fucking rocks!

    I also have a list of things on my phone that I want to buy as soon as I will allow it. Life is hard and all.

    I can’t find a tv show I want to watch either.

  2. Linda Sheridan

    Oh , running. Good core muscles help your organs not fall out.
    Richie may buy us a peleton cycle. I’m psyched!
    Goddess speed on all of your wants and needs❣️
    Love, Steph’s Momma

  3. kathy @ more coffee, less talky

    i’ve been plowing through Game of Thrones on my ereader and i have to say, now that i know the characters, it’s such a great read (where as before the show, i was totally lost because SO MANY CHARACTERS).

  4. Audrey

    I hate running. I’m tried and failed to get into it so many times… Good for you for doing it.
    Can’t wait to see the new blog design! That’s exciting!

    I feel like I go through stages with reading too! Sometimes it’s all I want to do and other times I just need a break. It sounds like it’ll be a great SUYB for you though, and I can’t wait to read your reviews!

  6. Tonya@Budget and the Beach

    Looking forward to seeing the changes. I signed up for a 10k in Oct. 5ks are doable for me without training, but 10ks aren’t and I’m used to running on the soft sand on the beach so it’s definitely a lot tougher. I ran a mile yesterday and that seemed hard. Oh boy! I’m watching Heart of Dixie right now. I need something light. I’m sure Ozark was great but I just can’t right now… lol!

  7. Nadine

    I have a long running list of things we need to buy as well. Sadly baby gates and a convertible car seat are at the top of it right now. Priorities right? I hate running too. LOATHE!!! I don’t trust anyone who says they actually enjoy it. But it used to work for me, and I need to get back on that shit. Thanks for the reminder. Hope you have a great weekend!

    Hope you find some joy in running soon. If anything, enjoy the time in nature 😉
    I am hooked on cashews right now too… which is why I need to run more. Yikes – all the calories

  9. Tanya @ A Mindful Migration

    I’ve been working out regularly until I caught a nasty head cold on Wednesday. UGH!!! Good for you for running. I hate running. A lot. 😀 I go through periods where I watch little TV, like right now. I read more which is fine. My want list is much, much bigger than my budget too. And it’s sucks being a mature, frugal-minded person! And thanks for the shout-out, let’s hope I deliver something fucking amazing!

    Running, ahhh.

    I want to buy a massage chair but that is ridiculous so I’m not even putting that on my list.
