Day 4: After Dark

I am determined to stick with this photo challenge this month! So far so good.

If only I could say the same thing for the Shred….. I just can’t get motivated to get off my butt and do it. Although, I watched Extreme weight loss lastnight and that always gets me motivated but it was too late by the time I got done watching it. This girl lastnight started out weighing 314lbs (she was 400lbs at her heaviest but lost 100lbs on her own), at the end she weighed 155lbs! Wow! Talk about inspiring! I know I don’t have anywhere near that much to lose, I just want to lose 10-15 lbs and get in shape. If she can do it so can I! I’m thinking of joining a gym.
I’m still eating healthy. I made a porkchop and asparagus for dinner lastnight, I still haven’t had a coke…. although the other day I told my sister I wanted a Cherry Limeade and she brought me one from Sonic and it did not agree with me! No more of those for me! That’s just proof that I don’t need any of that in my body.

Karen Kingsbury’s The Chance.

I’m not too far into it yet but so far so good! I love her books! The thing with her books though is, she usually writes series. I don’t like series, I like stand alone books. This is the first stand alone book she has written in awhile so I’m excited to get further into it!

Books books and more books!

I am obsessed with books right now. I go through phases.

Last week I read 2 books Still Alice & Morning Comes Softly

From www.amazon.com

Alice Howland, happily married with three grown children and a house on the Cape, is a celebrated Harvard professor at the height of her career when she notices a forgetfulness creeping into her life. As confusion starts to cloud her thinking and her memory begins to fail her, she receives a devastating diagnosis: early onset Alzheimer’s disease. Fiercely independent, Alice struggles to maintain her lifestyle and live in the moment, even as her sense of self is being stripped away. In turns heartbreaking, inspiring and terrifying, Still Alice captures in remarkable detail what’s it’s like to literally lose your mind…

 

 

A shy Louisiana librarian, Mary Warner fears she’ll always be alone—so she answers a personals ad from a rancher in Montana. Never before has she done anything so reckless, casting the only life she knows aside to travel to a strange place and marry a man she’s never met. But something about this man calls to her—and she knows this may be her very last chance at happiness.

Tragedy made Travis Thompson the guardian of three orphaned children—and determination leads him to do whatever it takes to keep the kids out of foster homes. When he decides to take a long shot on a personals ad, the results are surprising, and before he knows it, he has agreed to marry a mysterious Southern woman sight unseen.

It could be the mistake of a lifetime. But Mary Warner may be exactly what this broken family needs. And with a little faith, a little trust, and a lot of love, two lonely hearts might just discover the true meaning of miracles.

I really like www.goodreads.com    I can keep track of books I’ve read, want to read etc. I have a separate bookshelf for books I’ve read in 2012. I’m also doing the 2012 Reading Challenge. My goal is to read 52 books this year. I’m 4 books behind so far. I better get to reading!!!

You want to know what this single 27 year old did on Friday night? I read this book. It was really good 🙂

 That’s a wild and crazy Friday night right there. I’ve gotten into the habit of starting a book and not being able to put it down until I finish it. I read 3 books last week. I really like Kristin Hannah’s books and I wish the library carried more of them.

Night road made me cry, serveral times.

I really like this website:

http://www.goodreads.com/  You can keep track of books you’ve read or want to read.

I’ve turned into a major nerd lately. Or maybe i’ve always been a nerd and I’m just now realizing just how big of a nerd I am. :/

Books!!

I have been wanting to read this book for awhile, but the library never had it. On Monday I went to the library going up and down every aisle waiting for something to jump out at me and I finally saw it! I was so excited! I went straight home and started reading. I had to stop to go to my volleyball game at 9pm but as soon as that was done I went home and started reading it again. I read it in that one night. I can’t remember the last time I did that.

The book is written from a 5 y.o’s point of view so it took me a little bit to get used to that but the book was really interesting.

You can read the reviews here.   http://www.amazon.com/Room-Novel-Emma-Donoghue/dp/0316098329/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1317233244&sr=8-1

I go through phases…. there are sometimes I will read several books a week and then i’ll through phases where I won’t pick up a book for awhile. I am now reading

  Kristin Hannah is the author of one of my favorite books, Firefly Lane.

 I’m hoping Night Road is just as good!
