This Week – Jumping Back In!

Last year I spent so much time reading that I lost time for other things along the way, like these weekly checkins! I had the best of intentions today and then tweaked my back this morning and am in quite a bit of pain. Still in pain, but need to focus on something else so here I am!

I always enjoy the colors through the trees as the sun goes down. No filters or enhancements needed.

Highlight of the week I started intermittent fasting and have given up alcohol for the month and those two things shaved off almost 5 pounds!

Also, I’ve decided to continue last year’s book a day challenge, but in a way more relaxed way. I plan to utilize picture books and can count mini-series, like Stay Close, for books I’ve read. So far I’ve read 14 books and watched one. I’d just like to make it a lifestyle and we’ll see how it goes. If that means I’m reading a picture book to Gage some nights, all the better!

Could’ve been better It’s time for Gage’s ETR and IEP and that meant in-person assessments at his old speech therapist’s office and the school. The assessments were fine, but the dozens of pages I must now fill out is not fun.

Emily In Paris, season 2 This Netflix series is one of those guilty pleasures that I really don’t feel guilty about at all! Paris in all of it’s outrageous beauty.

Stay Close the Netflix series based on the book by Harlan Coben. Jason and I have felt ho-hum about the last few Coben adaptations so we were excited that this was one of the better ones. We both really liked it.

Moving as little as possible and hoping my back decides to start acting right.

    Throwing out your back, as I’ve seen with others, can be horribly painful. Let’s hope your back is doing

    I love your idea of reading a book a day. Good luck!

    Emily in Paris is a bit of a guilty pleasure for me, I think. Paris, the clothes. Beautiful.

    I think your approach to a book a day is a great idea–low pressure and relaxed. I hope your back feels better soon, Stacy. I have back problems now and then and know how painful it can be. I hope you have a great week.

    Ugh. Back pain is never any fun. I hope yours is feeling better. Congrats on your weight loss. I have several stubborn pounds that refuse to go away. Thanks for the heads-up at Stay Close. We are always on the lookout for something new to watch. We’ve tried the big favorites of other viewers (Schitt’s Creek, Yellowstone, Succession…), but prefer British police procedurals and mysteries. Stay Close sounds like something we might enjoy.
