It's all good though ... this is one of my top-10 favorite months of the year.
At work - October means we're in the 4th quarter and since I do payroll and taxes, I'm already prepping for year-end and W-2s and it's just too soon for thinking about that nonsense.
Finished off September with the Indy Women's Half. Ran it for the first time last year and it was raining the whole time, so my earbuds cut out and my phone's interval timer stopped working on me and I had stepped in a pothole/puddle at mile 2 so I squished my way through the next soggy 11 miles. Basically not a good race. This year - no rain, nice and cool, using my handy-dandy GymBoss interval timer for consistency (run 4/walk 1 - minutes, not miles). And since the training plan called for 18 miles that day, attempted to run 5 miles when I got home because I'm a glutton for punishment ... apparently. Running for 2+ hours, then driving home, and then pi…
Thought I'd try the 3-things list for a change. And linking up with Kristin and Gretchen this week/month.
What I'm eating - Kind of boring.
Current obsession is yogurt and berries for breakfast. Found some French-style yogurt ... divine. And it comes in little glass pots ... quel charme! Eggs ... because they're thankfully still in abundance. Need to start freezing some for when the girls decide to go on hiatus for the winter.Leftovers and freezer- or pantry-meals ... gradually cleaning out the pantry/fridge/freezer in preparation for an upcoming freezer-meal-put-together time with friends.
What I'm drinking - Coffee. Always coffee. But for the three (main) ways I drink coffee?
Regular brewCold brew (homemade, preferably)French press (reserved for weekend enjoyment) What I'm reading - Received A Beautiful Work in Progress from Kindle Unlimited? Kindle First? And I was several chapters in before I thought to check out who the author is and she happens to be of fatgirlru…
Linking up with Steph and Jana on their 3-year anniversary for Show Us Your Books ... I think this is only the 2nd time I've joined in though. Usually spend my time reading everyone else's posts and adding still more to my GoodReads TBR list.
I'm currently in my annual week of zoning out and catching up on reading, vitamin D, and leaving all my stress behind (or as much as possible). Imagine the look on my face when I realized 2 hours into the 10 hour drive that I'd left my stack of books at home for this week. No worries though ... plenty on the Kindle and plenty of things to do or not do this week.
As mentioned in August's list, finally finished the series again. If you don't like Stephen King, you might not like the series. If you do like Stephen King, this is the series that 90% (or more) of his books tie into at some point - even if just a mention or phrase. Read the series in anticipation of seeing The Dark Tower movie that came out in August. Then I sa…
