Before I get to my Weight Watchers update I wanted to announce the winner of the ‘Echotone’ giveaway. There were only three people who entered and they all tweeted and commented about the film so each received two entries.
I used random.org to select a winner and lucky #2 was chosen.
Congratulations Veronica! I will be contacting you shortly to get your mailing address. I hope you love the film as much as I did!
I was in Houston last Tuesday so I missed my regular workplace Weight Watchers meeting. In order to be eligible for my company’s WW fee reimbursement I had to attend another meeting last week to make up for the one I missed. Unfortunately this meant I would be weighing in Saturday the 12th,11 days from my previous weigh-in, and then again today, the 15th. Saturday I weighed in at 200 pounds even for a loss of seven pounds bringing my total weight lost on WW up to 80 pounds even.Yay! I hit my 75 pound milestone and was just an ounce away from leaving the 200’s- I was pretty excited Saturday to say the least.
All morning the only thing I could think about was whether or not I would be under 200 at my Weight Watchers meeting. I had made it to‘onederland’ six days ago but since my home scale and the WW scale never match I wasn’t sure how long it would take for me to get below 200 at a WW meeting. I was thrilled to see 199.2 on the scale today. I think I can now officially say I am in the 100’s and I will do whatever it takes to never see the 200’s again!
My next WW milestone is coming up pretty quickly at 196 pounds which represents 30% weight loss from my starting weight. Since we don’t have a WW meeting next week I am hoping to reach this goal by our next at work meeting on November 29th. Also, by hitting the 100’s I reached another goal which was to be under 200 by the end of the year. I reached that goal early, way ahead of my expectations, which is crazy. About a month ago my BF told me that I would be below 200 by Thanksgiving and I laughed her off. Crazy that I achieved that goal more than two weeks before Thanksgiving and seven and a half weeks before the end of the year. Since I reached the sub-200 pound goal early I have decided to set a new end of year goal- to be at or below 186 by the end of the year. Hitting 186 would put my weight loss at 100 pounds and it would be really cool to hit that 100 pound mark prior to 2012. Wish me luck!
I would just like to say something in regards to achieving the sub-200 pound goal as well as my last few monthly goals. If you have been following then you already know this so I apologize but I just wanted to point out that up until August I hadn’t been hitting any of the goals by the date I had set. For example, I had a monthly goal of losing ten pounds and after hitting that goal the first month I had 4 months in a row when I didn’t. I also had set date goals to hit my 5% loss and 10% loss and didn’t make them either. I didn’t give up though because I was focused on the more important issues; eating better and moving more. It took about six months until my body started to lose regularly and yes there were times where it was difficult to push through I never let it stop me. We are all different, we all lose weight differently, we all eat differently, we all enjoy different activities and that is really important to remember. Just find what works for you and stick with it….you’ll get there. So will I !
Thanks for reading!
It’s Wednesday which means it’s time to check in for Shrinkvivor. I woke up this morning and hopped on the scale and was very excited to see this number when I looked down:
Damn I am getting close to leaving the 200’s! I can’t wait!
Last week I weighed in at 206.8 pounds so today’s weight of 204.0 pounds gave me a nice weekly loss of 2.8 pounds. Over the past five weeks of Shrinkvivor I have lost 13.2 pounds which is 6% percent of my starting weight of 217.2 pounds. Yay!
I know that every week I talk about our Shrinkvivor challenge- exercise minutes- but I haven’t mentioned the mini-challenges they set up for us as well. This is because the past mini-challenges were things I already do. One week the mini-challenge was to eat something green with every meal. Since I already eat a metric shit-ton of veggies I didn’t see any point in mentioning it here. We also had a mini-challenge to drink 64-oz of water per day which is also something I do regularly. Actually I try to drink at least 128 oz of water a day. Aside from my morning tea (or coffee on the weekends) I only drink water. It’s a great habit I picked up on this WLJ. I am happy to report that this past week’s mini-challenge was one that I did participate in; the Halloween candy challenge. We were asked to avoid overindulging on Halloween candy and limit ourselves to two fun-sized pieces. I opted to challenge myself to avoid Halloween candy altogether and am pleased to say I made it through without eating any candy whatsoever. I think this challenge was easier for me because I am more of a salty food eater not so much a sweets eater and because I have been following a vegan diet for a few weeks now and most Halloween candy is not vegan.
Since I gave up eating dairy (October 8th was the last time I had any) I have pretty much been following a vegan diet. For whatever reason once I decided to stop eating dairy I also stopped eating meat. Not sure if I will stay with a vegan diet or if I will slowly incorporate meat back in but so far I am loving how I feel, I have tons of energy, and I don’t feel limited by food choices. There are so many great cookbooks and vegan bloggers out there it is never hard to find new recipes to try out. Heck, even this week’s ‘Menu Plan Your Butt Off’ on the Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans was all vegan recipes. I am not too concerned about sticking with it through the holidays since I will be the one cooking. I foresee a Thanksgiving dinner that includes Pumpkin Mac n’ Cheeze and Holiday Soup for the Soul and Vegan Lasagna for Christmas. Of course, we will still have turkey for Thanksgiving and steaks for Christmas; I just won’t be eating that.
All in all this was a great week for me for Shrinkvivor; I lost 2.8 pounds, racked up 878 exercise minutes, and avoided Halloween candy. I definitely consider it a success. Let’s hope it’s enough to keep me in the game for another week. Go Tribe Hodari Gray!
Weight Watchers Update
As you know, if today is my Shrinkvivor weigh in then yesterday was my Weight Watchers weigh in. I woke up feeling great and weighing in at home at 205.0 pounds. That was a 2.2 pound difference from what I weighed at home last Tuesday so of course I expected to see a 2.2 pound loss on the scale. Unfortunately, that’s not what I saw. I weighed in at 207.0 for a weekly loss of 1.2 pounds. Still a loss, I am still super happy about it, but not really sure why it wasn’t 2.2 pounds. Oh, well. It happens. Even though I wear the same clothes and eat the same foods every Tuesday I still can’t control how my body is retaining the food/water. By the time 12p rolls around it’s pretty much a crap shoot as to what number is going to appear on that scale. Still, a 1.2 pound loss is nothing to complain about and I am super excited to be only two pounds away from earning my Weight Watchers 75 pounds lost star. Does anyone know if there is charm for my WW key ring that goes with 75 pounds lost?
Next Tuesday I will be in Houston and so I will miss my Weight Watchers meeting. I am not going to be able to make up the meeting until Saturday November 12th so it’s going to be a long stretch between WW weigh-ins followed by two very close together (the 12th and the 15th) followed by another long stretch because we have no at work meeting on November 22nd. No worries. I am still going to attend my meetings weekly, although the days may be all screwy, and continue to track, portion, hydrate, and exercise and I know I will make it through November successfully.
Since yesterday was the first of the month it was also time for me to weigh in to see how I did against my monthly weight loss goal. Back in September I set up a monthly goal of losing 7 pounds a month for each of the remaining months of 2011. These monthly goals, if reached, would help me achieve another goal; to be below 200 by the end of the year. I weighed in on October 1st at 217.2, yesterday morning I weighed in at 205.0 for a loss of 12.2 pounds this month and a two month total loss of 23 pounds. Yay!
Yesterday was also the day for measurements and BMI and body fat percentage results. I have been slacking pretty hard on the weekly BMI and body fat%; the last time I took it was the week of October 18th. I keep forgetting to do the measurements on WI day but I will try to get back in the habit of tracking them weekly. I haven’t updated the monthly measurements or the weekly weigh in pages yet so here are some results I wanted to share with you.
Inches lost in October: 7” (most of which came from my chest, goodbye boobies – LOL)
Total inches lost since initial measurement (07/02) is 31.5”
BMI as of 11/01: 33.6, body fat % as of 11/01: 35.2%
BMI on 04/02 (first recording): 45.2, body fat% on 04/02: 41.8%
BMI difference: 11.6 points, body fat % difference: 6.6%
*Goal is a BMI below 25 and a body fat % below 32%
Wow! What a huge difference. More than any number on a scale I really just want to get that BMI and body fat percentage to a healthy range.

I read another post this morning titled ‘Three Things Thursday’ which inspired me to follow the same theme.
- It’s September 1st which means it’s time to see if I met my monthly weight loss goal of 10 pounds. Drum roll please….dadadadadadada…YES, yes I did! For the first time since March I have managed to lose ten pounds. On August 1st I weighed in at 240.8 and this morning I was at 227.8 for a loss of 13 pounds. Woo Hoo! So, Paul if you are reading this I think this is cause for a celebration or maybe presents. I like presents! Also, it is September 1st so I need to set new monthly goals. Simply Sidney was the only commenter yesterday who responded to my question on what I should do for my new goal. She had a few ideas; she mentioned my end of year goal, the possibility of lowering it to eight pounds or maybe make what I lost this month my goal for next month. Since I don’t want to try to lose 13 pounds again I have decided to set my goal to equal the monthly loss required to get me below 200 pounds by the end of the year; 7 pounds per month. Thanks for the great idea Sidney! Now I am set for the next few months and then once we are into 2012 I will set some new ones.
- I am switching up my workout schedule….again. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, actually changing your workout routine is recommended. However, the reason I am doing it is not to prevent muscle memory or to increase weight loss, it is because my yoga instructor is injured and will not be teaching for awhile which sucks. Tricia is awesome and I love her and love how she teaches yoga. Originally I was going to her class twice a week until her Tuesday yoga was canceled due to a scheduling conflict on her end. After that change a few weeks ago, adding in Pilates in place of that yoga class, I was only taking one yoga class a week; Tricia’s Hot Vinyasa yoga class. Then yesterday I go to class and find out she is injured and will be out for an extended period of time and in her place was a different yoga teacher. I stayed for the class because even though I liked Tricia so much I still wanted to do yoga and thought I should at least give this yoga instructor a shot. Unfortunately I left that class frustrated, achy, and miserable. The substitute instructor taught in a manner that made it very hard for me to follow along and execute the poses correctly. She didn’t show us, she didn’t do them along with us. I have never before been in a yoga class where the instructor didn’t do the poses and I realized really quickly that I am a visual person and I NEED to see what my body is supposed to be doing. She would tell us to do something like raise our arms but nothing more so some people had their arms up, some had them out, some had them up and out, it was very confusing. I would look around the room so I could see others and mirror their poses but no one was doing the same thing. It was bad. I left there feeling like I had spent 75 minutes contorting my body into positions it shouldn’t have been in. Last night my left knee was killing me and today my back and neck are sore. Awesome. Needless to say, I won’t be going back to her class. I don’t want to risk hurting myself. Once Tricia is back I will resume classes but until then no Wednesday Hot Vinyasa yoga for me. Luckily, my 5 week yoga seminar is starting this Saturday and a new class has been added to the Synergy Studio schedule on Sunday nights that is yoga and meditation (it’s kismet) and so I am not going to be without yoga in my schedule. Now I just need to figure out what I should do on Wednesday’s in place of yoga?
- Labor Day weekend is right around the corner and I am very excited to have a three day weekend. Paul has a four day weekend (lucky bastard!) and so he is coming downtown tomorrow to meet me for lunch. I really enjoy it when Paul has Fridays off and we get to meet up for a bite to eat. It is a nice treat and will be a great start to our weekend. My weekend is pretty packed but I don’t mind. I like keeping busy. Tomorrow I will be at work and then will be going to Nia Fun Fridays at 530p. Hopefully I will be able to record my first vlog tomorrow night. Side note: I have received some great questions and can’t wait to answer them. If you want to ask me anything please submit your question by tomorrow afternoon/evening or else they won’t make the cut Saturday is my first yoga seminar class at 11am and I am not sure whether or not I want to take my usual Saturday classes (Tai Chi and Nia) beforehand. I am going to ask the studio owner and see what she recommends. Saturday is also the first Penn State football game so after yoga I will be heading home to watch the game with Paul. Saturday night is the next to last home game for the Silver Stars so MS and I will be there cheering them on. Sunday morning is Journey Dance and then we are having our friends over for a barbeque. We are cooking/making everything ourselves so hopefully I will be able to stay on track since I will be surrounded by good food choices that day. It should be fun. We plan on playing some ladder golf, drinking some beers (wine for me) and spending some time with some really great people. If I can fit it in I would love to go to the first 7p yoga/meditation class but if we still have company or if I am too tipsy I won’t go. I am also really excited for Monday, my day off, because I can take classes I usually miss since they are during my work hours. I am going to take an 8am Nia class and a 915am Pilates class. Lately I have been going to boxing classes on Monday evenings but the gym is closed so I might even hit up the 530p Nia class as well. My weigh in is Tuesday and I might have a lot of extra weekend calories to burn off. Hopefully on Monday Paul and I can spend some quality time together, maybe go to a movie or something. Now that he is injured we are missing out on time we spent boxing/working out together. Thankfully he has friends, and video games, to entertain him while I am at class every night J All in all, I think it is going to be an awesome weekend and I cannot wait for it to start! What do you have planned for the holiday weekend? Are you going away or staying in town? Either way, I hope you have a great time.
Thanks for reading!
I owe you some updates. This post is going to be about my Weight Watchers weigh-in from July 30th, my monthly weight loss goal, monthly measurements, and progress since. As you know from my last post, as well as from FB and Twitter if you follow me there, my father had some complications during and after his neck operation on July 29th. Paul and I ended up going out to NJ to be with him last week because he was in critical condition and not doing well. I am happy to report he is doing much better now. He is still in ICU but he is off the breathing tube (as of 8/5) and although he is still having complications from the breathing tube and being in a hospital bed for 10 days it is safe to say he is out of the woods. Doctors are hoping he will be out of ICU Wednesday and hopefully home from the hospital sometime by the end of the week. Since I spent my weigh-in day at the hospital in NJ I have no weekly update to report from Saturday. Luckily for you I am behind a week so I still have some weight loss news to share with you.
On July 30 I weighed in at a 239 (woo hoo- goodbye 240’s) which was a weekly loss of 3.8 pounds and brought my total lost since joining WW up to 41 pounds! I was thrilled because I had another big loss, I received another 5 pound star in my meeting, but even more exciting than that was the fact that I had lost 11.2 pounds so far for July with only one day left in the month. As you know, I hadn’t lost 10 pounds or more in a month since the first month I starting tracking my weight so I was beyond excited that I could possibly reach/exceed my monthly goal. Unfortunately that excitement didn’t last very long. Come Sunday morning, the last day of the month, I weighed in at 240.8 which made my total loss for the month of July 9.4 pounds L Don’t get me wrong, I am beyond happy to have lost 9.4 pounds last month but I would be lying if I said I wasn’t disappointed that I came so close to meeting my goal and then didn’t. Oh well, next month I will hit that ten pounds!
Are you curious about how I let myself gain 1.8 pounds in one day? Worried I went on a all day food spree? Well, first I should say that I attribute most of the gain to water weight as I certainly didn’t eat 6300 calories on Saturday which also happened to be my move in day. I started the morning off with my weigh-in and then hit up a Nia class. I was asked to pick up breakfast and coffees for Paul and our friends helping us move which I did. I grabbed some scones and muffins. So, I started my day off with a scone. Not great but not too bad either. Then for lunch it was pizza- I had one slice and a salad. For dinner we ate out again as we were still in the process of moving and still had no food to prepare or means to prepare it. We had Papoulli’s (Greek)for dinner, I had the Mediterranean Diet plate, and after we had some Red Mango (frozen yogurt). So no, I wasn’t surprised I had gained that much weight in one day because I didn’t keep to my normal eating habits. I ate out three times (too much sodium), I didn’t get in my allotted servings of fruits and veggies and, by far the worst thing I did that day, I didn’t drink enough water. It was one of those days where hours just disappeared. Around 430p and I stopped what I was doing and said to Paul how I hadn’t peed in 7 hours- not a good sign.
Sunday wasn’t much better than Saturday but I knew most of the weight I was putting on was water weight from the crazy amounts of sodium I ingested over the weekend. I set out to make Monday better, to make sure I drank plenty of water and ate better and lo and behold come Tuesday morning I was back down to 239. Even more amazing was Wednesday morning when I weighed 236.8. What! Not only had I dropped those stinking weekend pounds but I was just merely 0.8 pounds from having lost 50 pounds since I started this back on 2/22. I was basking in the glory of my soon to be 50 pound weight loss when Dad took a turn for the worse and left to go be with him. Between last Wednesday through yesterday I struggled with my diet and lack of exercise. I didn’t care though; my only priority was my father and being by his side. But that’s life, right? Sometimes it can’t always be about us. I knew I had gained but I didn’t care. I did the best I could given the circumstances and I refused to beat myself up over it. I came home and vowed to do better this week now that I can get back into my routine.
This morning I weighed in at 239.2 (very happy to still be below 240) and I am curious to see how much of that is water weight and how much is actually poundage. I guess I will wait and see tomorrow. Either way, I know I will get to 236 soon enough and I when I do you know you will be the first people I tell. As for my monthly measurements, I had Paul take them on July 31 and I have them written down, somewhere. I will post them as soon as I find the results. I do know this, I lost a half an inch or more in every area with my biggest loss being in the chest, of course Overall, I could not be happier.
I would like to thank all of you for your emails/comments/tweets/texts/wall posts asking about me and my family. Your care and concern throughout last week was amazing. Your support really helped me keep it together whereas otherwise I probably would have been a nervous wreck. So again, thank you. I love you all so much!
Thanks for reading!
Today is June 30th, can you believe it? I can’t. June went by so quickly, I can’t belive that tomorrow is July 1st. Since the past two weeks were so chaotic I wasn’t really thinking of my end of month weigh-in and then I woke up today and realized it was time for me to step on the scale and see if I met my goal of losing 10 pounds in June. I weighed in on May 31st at home, using the same scale, so I figured it would be ok to use my home scale again today. On May 31st I weighed 258.8, today I weigh 250.2. So no, I didn’t reach my 10 pound goal but I did lose 8.6 pounds which is nothing to scoff at. I have also finally reached my 10% weight loss goal, which was reaching 252 lb, and look how freaking close I am to entering the 240’s! I cannot wait to be under 250 and will be thrilled if I get there by my official WW weigh-in on Saturday but I am not holding my breath. I want to be below 250 for two reasons; one, it means I am less than 100 pounds away from my goal weight (I realize this number is still big but in my head a double-digit loss seems easier than a triple digit loss) and two, because I would be closer to 200 than 300 hundred and that just feels great knowing that my next big milestone will bring me into the 100’s. Ahhhhhhhh (me screaming), it’s such an amazing feeling!
If you follow my post regularly or if you have peeked over at my weight loss goals page you will know that aside from my first goal, 10 pounds lost in March, I have not met a single goal by my self-imposed deadlines. Am I disheartened? No. Should I lower my goals? I don’t think so. I mean, yes I know if I changed my goal from 10 lbs to 8 lbs per month I would reach it but then it wouldn’t be a challenge. I set up these goals as something to strive towards, as a motivational tool. If I lower my goals this time maybe I will take it easier at the gym or maybe I will snack more because I will feel I could ease up a little but then what’s to stop me from changing that 8 lbs down to 6 lbs pounds, and then to 4 lbs…you see what I mean, right? Personally (as everyone is different and challenges themselves differently) I would rather set goals that might be slightly unrealistic and work really hard trying to get there then set goals that I can easily achieve. I think it is because I don’t get mad or feel like a failure when I don’t reach them (for the most part) but instead am happy to have made significant progress every month and in turn will work harder next month to try to get those 10 pounds. So, long story short- I am sticking to my ten pound goal even if it might be slightly out of my reach.
Now that June is almost behind me it is time to look forward into July and I thought I would share with you some events I have going on this month. As I mentioned in Monday’s post, this Saturday I will be participating in the San Antonio Road Runners Monthly (free- woot!) Fun Run. This race is set up in four legs; a kids run, ½ mile, 1 mile and 3 mile lengths occurring sequentially so I will be able to participate in all of them (minus the kids run, obviously) and in turn will get in 4.5 miles at the event and a ribbon for completing all three events. Yay! Then in two weeks I will be walking in the SARR Women’s 5K. This should be a great event and Paul is even lined up as a volunteer which means we will both get enjoy the race. At the event they will be collecting clothing donations to be distributed to local women’s shelters as well as sneaker donations. Very awesome!
July will also begin two new things for me; tracking my measurements and Bikram Yoga. I wish I had started tracking measurements from the beginning but oh, well I can’t fix that now. I will be doing this long enough to still be able to see my progression via inches lost so it will still be a beneficial tracking method. I of course will post them on this blog as well. I mean you already know my weight what do I care if you know how big around my hips are Then on July 6th Paul and I will be trying our hands at Bikram Yoga; aka hot yoga. We purchased a 10 class pass from Groupon and will be taking two classes a week until finished. I am both nervous and excited and hopefully will find it as enjoyable as the other classes I have taken. Wish me luck!
July also brings the start of my new job (also exciting/nerve-wracking), our move into post housing (which was pushed up and may happen as early as July 15), the WNBA All-Star game which is being held here in San Antonio on July 23, the Food Truck Throw Down on July 29 and 30 at the Boardwalk on Bulverde, as well as new parks, hikes, and an endless world of possibilities that I cannot wait to share with you. Oh, and maybe even another blog giveaway so stay tuned people!
Thanks for reading!
Another month has come and gone, can you believe it? It feels like just the other day it was May 1st. It is pretty unbelievable that tomorrow is June 1st. As it is the last day of the month I needed to weigh myself to see if I met my monthly goal of losing ten pounds. This morning I weighed in at 258.8 (hello 250’s!) to which I added 0.8 pounds to adjust for the difference between my scale and the WW scale. This brought my weight to 259.6 for a loss of 8.2 pounds for the month of May. Not ten pounds but I’ll take it! Although I would love to reach the goals I set for myself I cannot be upset because I gave it my all this month. There is nothing I would have done differently and for that I am proud. Tomorrow is June 1st and I start the month with a clean slate hoping I can get that ten pound loss this time. I also have another weight loss goal I am trying to reach this month; my 10% (28 pounds) weight loss from the starting weight when I joined Weight Watchers. I hope to be at 252 by June 18th, or at the very least the end of the month, because once I hit my 10% I will reward myself with some new clothes. In case you were wondering, my reward for reaching my 5% loss was tickets to Austin City Limits in September. I am really liking this whole reward system!
Last Week’s Goals:
Stay On Plan! Yes, I stayed on plan all week. I used all of my daily points each day and all but two of my weekly points. I also made sure to take my vitamins every day, drink at least 8 glasses of water, and every day I ate at least 8 servings of fruit/veg.
Keep moving! I stuck to the schedule I had laid out for myself; Monday and Wednesday were days off, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday I went to boxing classes, Saturday I rode 20.3 miles in 65 minutes on the recumbent bike and Sunday I went for a three plus mile walk with my friend KJ and our dogs.
Eat More Fiber! I tried to incorporate more fiber rich foods into my diet but I think what helped the most was that taking a fiber supplement. It has worked wonders. I believe that one of the main reasons I had such a big loss this week was that I ‘regular’.
Lighten Up! I think I did a pretty good job putting the previous week’s gain behind me. This week I focused on keeping a positive attitude and not being too critical of myself. I just tried to relax and have fun. By focusing on all of the positives, not just the weight loss, I was able to enjoy myself a little more. Like on Friday, when my sparring partner (one of the trainers) told me how much I had improved from the class two weeks prior I was ecstatic. It felt great having someone, especially a trainer, recognize my progress.
Weekly Goals 5/30 – 6/5
Keep moving! Workout schedule is as follows
Monday: 2.5 mile walk plus swimming
Wednesday: Combo class (1/2 boxing, 1/2 weights)
Thursday: Recumbent bike
Saturday: Recumbent bike
Sunday: Walk 5K
Clean House! I literally need to clean my house. My goal this week is to spend thirty minutes a day (non-boxing days) during the week and 2 hours Saturday and Sunday cleaning house. Man, what I wouldn’t give to be able to afford someone to clean my house for me.
Eat Whatever I Want! This goal stems from a discussion we had at WW last week on the subject of breakfast foods. Our group leader was asking what people typically ate for breakfast and most people had fairly typical answers like eggs, oatmeal, yogurt, fruit, etc. Our leader then asked if anyone ate salad for breakfast and most scoffed at this idea. She followed up that question with asking if we ever ate lunch/dinner items for breakfast and most people said no with the exception being pizza. She was trying to get us to think outside the box for breakfast ideas. I mean there is no reason why we need to eat standard breakfast foods. So, Sunday morning I made myself sautéed yellow squash for breakfast accompanied by veggie bacon and watermelon. Yesterday I had carrots, a multi-grain sandwich thin, hummus and watermelon for breakfast because why not? It’s what I wanted to eat. So this week I am going to continue eating whatever types of foods I want, when I want them.
Read more! Preferably read more poolside I have a serious addiction, books. I keep bringing more books into my apartment but yet I have really been slacking on reading them. I need to devote some time to reading so this week I am making it part of my goals. Hopefully I can get back into the habit of reading every night before bed.
Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend! Thanks for reading!
