What I'm Reading This Week #28

Hello all!  I hope you had a great week and are ready for a rockin' weekend!  I think we are though I don't know what rockin' will be happening.  Oddly, the week didn't drag as much as a short week typically does so that's a plus!

Here's a peek at what we've been putting in the face holes this week.

Monday was vegetarian "taco" salad.

Exercise was a walk around the cemetery earlier in the day and LIIFT4 Chest and Tri's

Tuesday was Shrimp over sweet potato 'noodles' and caramelized onions with brown butter.

Workout was a crap fest of Cize from Beachbody on Demand.

Wednesday was BBQ chicken lavash pizza with pineapple and Brussels.

Workout was P90x3 CVX.  (Strength/cardio combo)

Thursday I had to tank my original plans and went for easy with low sodium pasta and salad.

Workout was a deceptively hot 2+ miler at Grandma's cemetery.

Now let's move on to...

5-minute breathing workout lowers blood pressure as much as exercise/drugs  (I need to do this (I already have the machine) because my lung capacity sucks and if I can get more stamina and some cognitive improvements too?  Yes please)

5 Harmful Myths About People with Anxiety (Absolutely!  If non-sufferers didn't get it during the pandemic, please be kind to others trying to get through each day with it.)

The 6 Biggest Pet Peeves Home Stagers Have About Your Bathroom  (Not sure how I feel about the last two.)

Why You Make Grunting Noises Every Time You Sit, Stand And Bend Over  (If there was an Olympic sport for this, I'd be racking up the gold.)

We Are Gen X, And We Don’t Give A F*ck If You Think We’re ‘Cheugy’  (I don't know, care or want to get schooled on what cheugy (chew-gee) is, what it means and why I'm 'not allowed' to say it without being lame.  Reason #1,238,276 why we didn't have kids.  I am Gen X and literally (actually mean literally) unimpressed.)

Go Inside Gwen Stefani & Blake Shelton’s Fairytale Wedding Ceremony  (Their wedding cake was a replica of her parents which is so sweet but it's also very similar to our wedding cake right down to the sugar cherubs!)

Nothing on tap that I'm aware of.  We both agree a purge is looming...let's see if we get the gumption to do it or not.

You got something fun planned?

  1. I have to say this week went by kind of fast for me. Usually they drag on when the week starts with a day off/holiday. Probably just jinxed myself since it is early yet on a Friday. Have a great weekend people!

  2. I'm not a fan of their last 2 bathroom suggestions either. All the other stuff is already something I do. Towels dry faster spread on a bar than bunched on a single hook and my bathroom is way too tiny to give up even the small amount of storage the medicine cabinet gives. I'm having the bathroom re-done soon (I've been saying for 2 years, so "soon" is relative) and the bars and cabinet will be upgraded but replaced for sure.

    I've done the bathroom, 2 halls closets, living room, and a small portion of the kitchen. I have 2 decent size donate boxes almost full and have taken out a couple trash bags already. I don't know where this stuff comes from.

    At my folks for a few days, kiddo has dr appts and we are going to the water park later today, then home to boring-ness and hiding from the 100+ heat.

  3. It's been a busy day so the weekend won't be too bad on that front -- hopefully. I'll just have a bit of laundry and bill paying to do, and then work the weekend. I did some research yesterday on tree removal companies so I may actually send out inquiries to two places tomorrow. The order of things would be tree removal, get a shed, new deck (which probably won't happen this year but at least the yard would be ready for it). And somewhere in there buy the fridges. But I need to get the skinny table in the kitchen first, which I have on Amazon -- just have to move it to the cart after months of debating. LOL
    I hope you guys have a good weekend and can have some genuine "chill" time -- if you know what I mean. =o)
