Hey all.Once again, I’m linking up with The Nectar Collective for Weekly Wishes. The Weekly Wishes is where we all can share our posts about goals, challenges, and wishes for the week! Last week, my goal was to read for an hour every day! Some days I was great! Some days…not so much.
Monday: Day 1: In the morning, I read about thirty minutes and finished my AP European History book, The Politically Incorrect Guide to Western Civilization. Woo hoo! So happy to be done… In the afternoon, I had a long wait at Costco while my tires were being rotated and I read about a 75 minutes of Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris. One hour and 45 minutes.
Tuesday: Big day! Between the boy’s softball game & making cheesecake all day, I forgot to read. When I got in bed I read Catching Fire before falling asleep. One hour.
Wednesday: Finished Catching Fire! It’s a reread so I got through it quickly. One hour and thirty minutes.
Thursday: My last day in Charlotte so I was busy! I started a new dystopian book called Wool early in the morning and read some before going out to lunch with a friend and dinner with the boy. Thirty minutes.
Friday: In the car on the way to Michigan! Read Me Talk Pretty One Day. Two hours.
Saturday: Finished Me Talk Pretty One Day! Thirty minutes.
So I didn’t do so hot there at the end on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday, but I felt good about the time I spent reading this week. It felt really good to spend my vacation intentionally, reading instead of noodling around on the internet all the time. I highly recommend setting a reading goal, even if it’s only half an hour a week.
Now, for this week’s wish:
In the summer, I am soo bad about this. If I don’t have something specific to get up for, I’ll get up around 8 or 9 and not be productive for awhile. This week, I plan to get up at 8:30 and run (if it’s a running day) and condition (if it’s a conditioning day) and work on something right off the bat, even if it’s something simple like reading or blogging. We’ll see how I do!
