So…between grief, illness, the Olympics, and fostering a sick kitten, there really hasn’t been a lot of time for other things this February. To recap:
Um…I didn’t make any progress at all in my goals this month. I suppose I did get a few lines of my afghan sewn on, and finally got past the giant block of black squares. Six lines to go! Otherwise, nothing.
February did me in. I talked about this in more depth in my previous post. As for the numbers, they were sad, sad, sad this month. I exercised on 19 days and only for a total of 981 fitness mins (January was 1699!). I did 18 yoga sessions, and only walked 21 miles. My poor step average was a mere 8054/day. As for my weight, if I compared from Feb 1st to March 1st, I only gained a fraction of a pound. The real story comes when I average out my weight for the month, which shows a two-pound increase. Maybe not much in the grand scheme of things, but definitely not the direction I want to go.
February was split into a couple sections, reading-wise. There was the early part of the month, when I read my favorite book of the month, Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine. Then there was a couple weeks when nothing I tried to read appealed to me. I culled a bunch of books from my list. Then I switched focus onto mysteries and thrillers at the end of the month. I skimmed through a few formulaic ones (didn’t fully read, so they didn’t make it onto the blog) and had a couple good ones shine. My reading was just as scattered as my health and brain this month it seems!
- Making a difference for Jojo. He very possibly would have died without our foster care.
- Buying my new car, Gordon!
- The fun, personalized engraving Jason got for me on a wine bottle for Valentine’s Day. –> (It won’t make sense to anyone who hasn’t read Oathbringer. The guy doing the engravings said it was the most interesting request he’d had that whole day.)
- Hosting a Super Bowl party for a big group of friends
- Jason receiving his personalized wedding ring
Coming up in March
March is birthday month in my family. All told, we have six birthdays in the extended family, including my own. Plus there’s spring break, and Morrigan takes his first SAT, and I might have a chance to meet Robert Jackson Bennett at a library event. All that shapes up to potentially be an awesome month!
