Friday Fun! (The Gym and Mount Auburn Cemetery)

Hello my lovely readers!  I hope your weeks went well and that you are enjoying this summer weather.  You all now know that a significant portion of my time nowadays is being taken up with my newly budding writing career, and of course I’m loving it!  It’s so nice to be out of school and doing what I enjoy.

Of course, being me, I’m not just reading and writing in my spare time.  I’m still consistently going to the gym.  My new trainer and I (my old one no longer works at that gym) are starting to understand each other and tailor a routine to fit my needs.  It’s interesting to see the differences between her and my old one, and I like that she’s focused on my cardiovascular health and core strength.  We did my measurements this week, and I’m proud to report that since the beginning of June I’ve lost another 2 inches around my waist.  Yay!  See, I don’t just yak about Americans and our health, I am trying my best to improve my own as well. 😉

Last weekend I visited the historic Mount Auburn cemetery for the first time.  Can I just say, it is freaking huge and very inspirational for horror stories.  It basically is a nice, hilly hike right smack in the middle of urban development.  I absolutely loved it.  There’s no way I saw anywhere near everything there is to see there.  I mean, we’re talking there were randomly hidden ponds and bridges and monuments and……I could go on and on about it.  It’s a truly amazing free gem right in the middle of the city.

Tonight I’ll be going to a bonfire at a friend’s house.  I’m excited for that! I love fire.  The rest of my weekend will consist of going to see some improv, working out, and a meeting of progressives in my neighborhood.  I hope you all have lovely weekends!  Any good plans?

    Friday fun! Yes, it’s Monday but I was barely at my desk on Friday. That cemetery sounds awesome. I wish I had made it there. And congrats on your health!
