Friday Fun! (Fitness Goals, GoodReads Groups)

January 13, 2012 4 comments

Hello my lovely readers!  I hope 2012 is treating you all well so far. 🙂

I had a nice, quiet weekend last weekend, and it was just what I needed after all the holiday hullabaloo.  I alternated between reading and editing my novel.  I’m about 40% ish of the way through with the edits.  It’s a time-consuming process, since I insist on reading it out loud to help, but I’m very excited about it.

My trainer asked all of his clients to come up with new goals for the new year.  My goal for a long time has been man-style pushups.  I’m getting close to that, though, so I do need to come up with something new for afterwards.  Maybe unassisted pull-ups?  Work on my running?  Dips with weights?  It’ll take a bit of thought.

The weather this winter has been very odd.  We had one actual snowstorm in October and a dusting of snow this month.  Mostly though it’s been just warm enough for disgustingly cold rain.  I literally have not worn my winter boots yet!  On the one hand, it’s helping save on the heating bill, but on the other, I miss winter!

I have Monday off for MLK Day, so I have a three-day weekend, yay!  I’ll be doing my usual reading, gym, writing, cooking weekend relaxation.  I also am hoping to make it to this free class on growing greens without dirt in your kitchen in the winter.  Fresh greens in my salad, how cool would that be?!

Don’t forget that tomorrow is the return of The Real Help.  We’ll be discussing To ‘Joy My Freedom: Southern Black Women’s Lives and Labors after the Civil War by Tera W. Hunter.  Next Saturday is the first book for Diet for a New America Reading Project, and I hope at least a few of you have started reading Diet for a New America.  It’s already blowing my mind.

Oh, and, for those of you on GoodReads, I set up a group for the MIA Challenge as well as for Diet for a New America.  Be sure to check them out!  I’m hoping to get some discussion boards going on both soon.  Also feel free to friend me if we aren’t already friends on GoodReads. 🙂

Happy weekends all!
