2019 Reading Goals!

My goal isn’t really ambitious. It’s 3 books a week. I can do that. Easily. I read 206 books last year!

But my goal this year is to read more than just romance novels.

Some self-help. Some basic fantasy. I’m going to try all the genres.

Okay, not really, but I am going to try and read something besides romance novels.

I’m currently reading (along with an actual romance novel) “” by Ryder Carroll.

I love my bullet journal. I don’t do a traditional one in a book (I do have books. LOTS of books. Several ones, including the actual that came out this year). But I have a , instead. I got mine from Michaels, and I love it. I can have more than one, and switch them out as I get bored with the color or the design. I have a for my A5. That’s the size I prefer to work with.

Okay, my ADHD is kicking in and now I’m focusing on something different. I was explaining a book I was reading. We’re talking about books here. The planner talk will come later, I promise.

So, my goal is small, but I plan on making CHANGES to what I read. Hey look! That word of the year! You saw it in yesterday’s post too!

As you can see, the goal isn’t too out there. 2014, I read over 300 books. 2015, I don’t think I even DID a challenge. 2015 was a weird year for me. I honestly don’t even remember MOST of 2015 :O

2016 was the full year of me working. I was still only technically part-time, but I remember working 10-15 days in a row. I remember having an “OT battle” with coworkers.

2017 was the year I went full-time. 2017 was the year both kids were starting school during the time Josh would be home.

  1. Oh. 2018. I barely made my goal of 200. I chose several short small books to reach that goal. I read like 4 or 5 books in one day during that time. I didn’t feel like I cheated but I did feel like I could have chosen different books and just dealt with not hitting 200 books for the year!

So, 2019 will be year of making changes to my reading habits. I will read what I enjoy, but I will attempt to branch out. I shared a link on my Facebook (personal, but I will share it right now on my FB blog page).

What are YOUR reading goals?

So Fail

So, I ran one day. ONE DAY and then spent 3 days barely able to walk because of shin splints and muscle cramps. WTH? Figured out my biggest problem is that I run weird. Like seriously weird. And really hard, too. That’s causing strain on my knee and ankle (the ankle I screwed up a year ago). The shoes that are PERFECT right now (that I own) cause my foot and leg to go funky, because of the tongue of the shoe.

Ugh, I feel like I’m just making excuses and should just look into apidexin cheap, but damn it, I want to get in shape. I want flatter everything (except chest and butt, of course 😉 ). Bleh!

A New Me

Well, New Year’s is fast approaching, just as fast as Christmas. Time to think of how I want to start the new year. 2010 will be the year of Self-Confidence.

I will be working out religiously. Yes, working out. Me. EA Sports Active, Wii Fit Plus, and Fit to Strip

Another thing I’m going to be doing is changing up my look. My current look:
