Weekly Recap # 3: Week of 5/28-6/2
Hey everyone! I’m back with another weekly recap post of all things happening on and off the blog. This week I’ll be linking to the Sunday Post, which is hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer and to Stacking the Shelves, which is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews.
I hope everyone has had a wonderful week. Mine was pretty good. Getting Monday off so that the work week is short is always nice, and then the weather finally sorted itself out and we were able to get that championship soccer game in. My son’s team won 2-1, so yay! Now all that’s left on the soccer front is the end-of-season party, which we’re going to do at one of those new indoor trampoline parks so that should be fun for the kids.
Because the weather was so nice, I spent a lot of time outside reading, which was amazing. I had an excellent reading week, but a horrible writing one. I’m only planning to finish reading Six of Crows this week and then starting Saints and Misfits because I have four reviews I really need to get written before I forget everything about the books I’ve read recently. I really loved The Sunshine Sisters and The Upside of Unrequited, so I’m looking forward to reviewing those.
I’m also trying to work on my personal fitness goals now that the weather is warm again. I’ve worn a fitbit for a couple of years now but have always been hit or miss about actually making my daily goal. I’m trying to get in 12,000 steps everyday to offset the fact that I have a desk job and spent wayyyyy too much time sitting every day. This week I made my goal 6 out of the 7 days, so fingers crossed I can keep that up.
And that’s it for me. Have a great week, everyone!

I’m really trying to get back into an exercising routine as well. Between reading and being chained to my desk at work, I really have to work hard to get those steps! The Fitbit has been good, though, especially when a bunch of us do a challenge and we all go crazy with our steps to try to beat each other!
Yeah, the fitbit challenges are definitely my biggest motivators, although sometimes they’re a little depressing because some of the participants get 20,000+ steps in a day and I’m just sitting there like “OMG, howwwwww?!” LOL!
Congrats on the soccer game! I love reading/crocheting outside in this weather too. Enjoy your week!
Here’s hoping for another wonderful weather week! 🙂
Congrats on both your son winning the championship and you meeting your goal! I absolutely loved the joke at the bottom; I saved it to my phone!! Have a wonderful week. 🙂
Thanks, you have a great week too!
Congrats to your son’s team!! I have so many reviews to write as well. I hate being behind. Wow 12,000 steps is awesome. I average like 7,000 and that is with working out. I need to up my game lol!! Have a great week!
Thanks! Yeah, it’s hard to get in those steps and still have time to do everything else I want to do in a day. I think all of the steps I got this week are why I’m so far behind in writing my reviews, haha.
Great job on your fitbit goals. I have a desk job, too, so I know exactly what you mean. I got one of those Varidesks so I could stand while I work. I need to do better about taking breaks and walking, though.
Thanks! I’ve been thinking about getting one of those desks as well to cut down on how much I sit. One of my coworkers actually purchased a treadmill desk and has been using it for a few months now. It’s out of my price range but she loves that she can work and walk at the same time.
Congrats on your son’s win! How fun. I need to read Six of crows and I love the cover of The Sunshine sisters- so summery. Hope you like Girl Out of Water.
Have a super weekend.
Thanks! I just started Six of Crows and so far it’s really good, one of those books that grabs your attention right away, which I always like.
HAH! Love that library card comic. Too funny. I’m glad you had a nice reading week. I did too -but yeah, I’m with you on the not so great writing week. I have so many books I need to review!
I’m glad I’m not alone in being way behind on the book reviews. Here’s hoping we both get caught up soon!
Hi Suzanne 🙂 I’m looking forward to your reviews on Six of Crows, the cover is intriguing. You could say I have a thing for crows!
Good for you on the fitness goals! Bring on summer!
Hi Jo-Ann, thanks so much for stopping by. I’ve started Six of Crows and so far am really enjoying. It’s funny you mention the cover because that was what initially drew me to the book. Hope you’re having a great week 🙂
12000 is amazing! Everyone is reading Girl out of Water and now I’m curious…
Yeah, I’ve heard a lot of good things about Girl Out of Water so I’m really hoping I’ll enjoy it.
