Happy Father's Day to all the dads today.
This is going to be a pretty short Sunday Salon post, as I have a lot of things to accomplish today. My reading took a little nose-dive this week, after I discovered the Video Poker App for the iPad and iPhone. So in the evening I' ve been playing with "fake money" and I am up $1,100!!! LOL It is very addictive, but it's summer right so some of our free time activities tend to change.
Healthy Living ~ I had a successful (week 1) of my healthy eating/exercise mission. I lost 4.5 lbs this week, and managed to walk (4) out of (7) days for about (35) minutes each day. I know this probably sounds weird, but I feel better already having eliminated most refined sugars. I also had more energy this week, so I feel more motivated to continue.
Audio Books ~ I heard June was audio book month, but I've always enjoyed them and usually listen to about 3-4 month. I am really hooked on audio books lately, as I can occasionally listen at work as well. I have been listening to some awesome ones: Venetia Kelly's Traveling Show; Frank Delaney, and The Murderer's Daughters; Randy Susan Meyers; both are excellent. I just picked up The Passage; Cronin (audio version is 25 discs), but know I will not finish this in (3) weeks since my commute is short, so I'll probably supplement it with the print version; I'm anxious to see what the hype is all about.
My June reading is not going as anticipated, (I've only read 6 books so far) but I'm okay with that. This week I didn't finish a thing! Pathetic huh?
