It’s been a while since I did a weekly wrap-up kind of post. This week has been extra exciting for me because someone FINALLY logged one of the books I set free via Bookcrossing. I think I may have found the perfect level of overkill to ensure that people at least consider logging their find. You just have to put stickers on ALL the sides, add a bookmark that gives them specific instructions, and put it all in a bag that also tells them what to do.

It doesn’t happen often, but I try to make lunch at home when I have to work in the office all weekend. Even if that means I just buy a pre-made salad from the store, at least I’m not going out to a fast food place. When I’m working at the bookstore, it’s a bit more difficult. I usually end up eating both breakfast and lunch in the Food Court. I have been attempting to make healthier choices with all my meals though, and I usually take a lot less food that I would have previously. I’m trying to listen to my body more to determine when I am actually hungry and when I am full.
Today I also started writing down my healthy living intentions, including days when I plan to go to the gym. I have this fancy day planner that rarely gets used properly because I only fill out the monthly calendar portion. I decided to use the weekly layouts to highlight all the days I want to workout, when bills are due, what I’ve been spending my money on, and other personal events that aren’t going to take the whole day to complete.
Once again, a sad showing for my blog posts. I need to start reviewing books again. Stay tuned… they are coming.
Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog and showcase books and things we have received. Share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.
Daily planners eat up so much time, I’ve noticed – it’s also why I barely fill them in – and then end up feeling guilty cause I’m not using my beautiful planner! Lol.
Have a great reading week 🙂

Definitely. I tried to do a bullet journal earlier this year and found that I was spending more time writing things down than I was actually doing the tasks I had set out for myself.
Bullet journals are another thing altogether! Absolute time sink 😀 plus, so many skills required, really.
I use an online planner that works well for me and keeps me organized.Glad someone logged in and shared about the book 🙂
