Wow Busy!

I can’t believe how much my family does in a day!

Exercise:

My sister in law and I ran down to my nephew’s soccer game. It’s great to get out, but it always reminds me of how slow I really am. We also ran back and stopped at the top for squats, dips, pushups and calf raises. It was more exercise than I expected to get!

Reading:

I finished my current book through small reading times throughout the day! The Alice Network by Kate Quinn was amazing!!! This story takes place in two different time periods -1915 and 1947 and follows Eve, Charlie and Finn on their adventure. They are looking for people who made a big impact on their life.

I don’t love scary books, but this book, even with a few graphic moments just had me addicted! I couldn’t stop reading actually finished the 500 page novel in less than a week!

You should pick this book up!!

Socializing:

We went over and had drinks with one couple while the children were scootering.

We then came home as my brother had another couple coming for dinner. I ate way too much of the amazing meal my sister in law made!

The kids were so cute as they were marching around the house dressed up as different people. It was great to see kids engaged in creative play rather than screens!

I was happy when the couple went home about 9:30 as I was exhausted! This seemed like a much busier day than I’m used to!

A Change in Routine

Today I was off for an appointment, so it was a very different day for me.

Exercise:

With this bonus daylight time off, I got out for a run first thing this morning. I had planned on a 10km, but only managed 6.5km. My legs were just tired from last night and I was definitely feeling the lack of recovery time!

This evening I got a 1:05 plank and 200 squats done too:)

Reading:

I spent a lot of last night and today reading as I started a new book last night that seems to be really good! I’m already on page 180! If you get the chance to read The Alice Network, go for it as it’s awesome so far!

Medical:

I was off for an oral surgeon appointment and while my dentist isn’t going to be happy with the results, I am!

Knitting:

After talking to my mom and telling her all my news, I met up with Brenda for knit night or rather knit afternoon. I had torn out my sleeve last night and so got started on it again. I went down to 50 stitches for the sleeve and it seems much better! I just have 1.5″ to go before I do the border, so I think I’ll get to it!

Have fun!
