This was another great week of workouts for me.

I added in a swimming and will be doing that once a week for a while.  It feels good to be back in the water and mixing it up.

My lifting is going well.  I’m still doing dumbbell work and slowly increasing my weights.  I’m up to benching 70 lbs (35 lb dumbbells).  That may not be much to some people but I’m doing it for three sets and 2 months ago I could only do 40 lbs.  I love seeing the improvement!

Oh, and I saw a possum on my run outside last Sunday!  It scared the crap out of me.  I definitely let out a shriek when he caught me off guard :)

Reading Recently #4: Jane Eyre & The Giver

by Stephanie January 22, 2015

I’m impressed by how much I’ve been reading lately.  More importantly, by how much I’ve wanted to read.  This usually goes in phases with me.  I’ll read a ton and then won’t read for months.  I’m hoping the reading challenge will help with that. I updated my challenge page and I’ve now completed 4 of […]

A Constant State of Soreness

by Stephanie January 21, 2015

I’ve had a great few weeks of workouts.  I’ve worked out no less than five times each week since the start of the year.  In fact, I’ve been on schedule without missing or modifying a workout, for the last 11 days.  That might be a record! I can tell I’ve been consistent.  I’m able to […]

Recently Reading #3: Easy Reading

by Stephanie January 15, 2015

I spent most of October through December of last year reading the Inheritance series by Christopher Paolini.  I had read the first three before but decided to read them all again, including the last book.  Fantasy is probably my favorite book genre and these are chock full of dragons and magic. In addition to being […]

Late Night Chat

by Stephanie January 14, 2015

Hey friends!  I’m curling up on the couch with a blanket and a cup of wild sweet orange tea.  It’s one of my favorites.  So pull up a couch cushion and let’s chat, shall we? I posted last week about my new job and how nervous I was.  I still am but it’s going well.  Each […]

Weigh In 3

by Stephanie January 13, 2015

Since one of my 2015 goals is weight loss I need to start weighing in again.  My last weigh in was on December 4th.  Here’s the update: Despite Christmas, New Year’s, and traveling I was able to lose 3.8 lbs in about 4.5 weeks.  I’m very happy with this progress. One thing that I haven’t […]
