Well, I just finished a month-long yoga inversion challenge and figured it would be fun to post some of the more interesting poses I worked on. Most of these are not perfect, obviously, since I've never done them before and I need more flexibility to achieve a number of them. But I'm proud of all of my results because I worked hard!

I hope you're not tired of seeing my yoga pictures yet because I have a ton. Lol!

Oh my goodness! I barely finished this month's book in time. Initially, I just took too long finishing a personal book at the end of May that bled over into this month, but then I was trying to borrow a digital version of Along the Infinite Sea so I didn't have to buy it and I had to wait for a "copy" to become available, so I started another personal book. Of course, halfway into my own book, the club book became available, but I didn't want to read both at the same time ... conundrums!

Haha! So, anyway, I pushed through and just finished it in time to get a review post up at about the customary one-week-before-the-end-of-the-month mark. Whew!

Well, we made it to the throes of summer, everyone! And with it, a book about boats. Somehow that seems fitting, right?

I hope everyone is doing well now that we’re halfway through the year. (Wait, whaaaat? How did that happen?!) Well, anyway, let’s make the second half just as awesome!

Look! I finally found a few minutes to blog about something! Woohoo!!!

Apologies to my mom who has seen just about every one of these photos before (had to brag to someone!), but since I haven’t talked about it here yet, I really wanted to record my thoughts and images so I can look back later in one place and track my progress. Plus, I'm just really proud of how hard I've been working and can't hold it in!

Well, May just blew up my life! Lol. Suddenly, everything is super busy all the time, which you may have guessed from my lack of posting lately. Sorry about that!

Work is busy. Life is busy. The grass grows a foot every five days... Haha! Somehow I will keep up with it all, but I’m hoping that will include more content here soon. I still want to chat with you all, if only I can find the time to write about things…

Happy Earth Day, everyone! I hope your day on our beautiful planet is a great one. I’m hoping for some rain today myself. They keep forecasting it the last couple of weeks and then we really don’t get any at our house and I love a good rainstorm, so it’s been disappointing. Fingers crossed!

Believe it or not, it’s time once again to review a book. This one was definitely a quick read, which I was grateful for since, in just a few months, we have (dum dum dummmm!) The Count of Monte Cristo in all its enormity. Prepare yourselves. But back to the book at hand…

I hope all of you are enjoying the beginnings of spring and some beautiful, long days! I'm loving life myself and chugging steadily along in my 25-book goal for the year. I'm also halfway through round 2 of my fitness program, so that feels good too! And taxes are all done, so there's lots to be thankful for right now.

Believe it or not, we're already midway to March (!), so it's time to remind everyone what book to try to get a hold of in the next couple of weeks if you haven't already. Tip: If you read on the Kindle, this one may be available to borrow from your local library since I've already checked for myself. Free books are the best!

I made it through week 4 of taking food pictures. It’s a miracle! You don’t know how many times I started munching, ate half of or entirely finished a meal before realizing I hadn’t photographed it. LOL. Or maybe you did since some of my photos are copy/pastes of previous times I ate a KIND bar or stock photos from a restaurant website or simply pictures of half-eaten food.

Oh well. It’s not like it’s a natural thing to take pictures of everything you eat, so I don’t feel bad I didn’t do a perfect job. But I am glad I’m all done because now I can eat with abandon!

This month's book was not deep or thoughtful, by any means, and it wasn't supposed to be. I just thought it might be fun to learn which "truths" we grew up believing were actually based on false information or no information at all!

It was funny while I was reading it too because my Kindle told me I was about halfway through the book and suddenly is was over. There was such a long bibliography and glossary section that it was the whole second half of the book. Crazy!

I did it, you guys! Back to only two desserts for this past week. And I actually had only one alcoholic beverage, so it was a stellar week all around. I did end up eating some "junk" food because we went out with people over the weekend, including to the Winter Park Art Festival, but hey, you've gotta enjoy life, right?

Other than that, I've stayed on track and as of this morning, I just completed the first workout of week 4 of my challenge. So, all in all, March has been a solid month for me in fitness!
