Sunday Synopsis: June 26, 2011

Today marks the last day before my busy, busy season at work is done!  I am ready to finally be able to relax, sit down with a good book, and maybe even sneak in a few minutes of reading here and there during the upcoming down time.  These last few weeks have been so exhausting for me and I feel like I have not been as productive as I could have been.  Today, however, I could already start seeing the shift coming . . . I cleaned out the garage, got completely caught up on laundry, worked on organizing a few boxes from our move two years ago, and will soon be off to read a bit before going to bed.  I'm feeling like I may finally be starting to get back to my old self . . . I'm not quite there yet, but I'm feeling potential that I have not felt in a long time.

Speaking of potential . . . I feel like maybe some of this could be coming from my increased exercise.  I have been making it a point to walk at least five miles a day the last month or so, and most days I have made that goal.  In fact, this last week, I have made it every single day with some extras!  With this in mind, I have decided to bump my goal up to six miles a day this week!  I finally feel like my original goal that I posted about in early January of increased exercise is coming around!

On the blog front, I have been working on getting caught up and have a few things planned for this week, including another addition to my wish list and a review of Delirium by Lauren Oliver.  I think that I have also finally gathered up the last minute details for the changes I mentioned a while back and will be announcing those early this week as well!

Before signing off for the night, I also wanted to share my reading agenda from this last week and the week to come!  I completed Blankets by Craig Thompson and am currently reading Fables:  Legends in Exile by Bill Willingham.  I can't decide if I will read Emerald Atlas or A Discovery of Witches next though.  Any thoughts?

How are you doing on your goals for the year now that we are half way through?  Or, you can simply share what you will be reading this week!  I want to hear any and all of it!


  1. Congrats on exercising. I'm not doing as much as I'd wanted, but I am continuing with a regiment. To be honest, I never complete all I ever I'm happy with the progress though.

  2. Congratulations on making it through your busy period! I can only imagine just how excited you are to have made it through alive. Enjoy your much-deserved slow period!

    Congrats on the walking! I feel so embarrassed I've done nothing this year. I really need to get moving.

  3. 5 miles a day is very impressive, Tif! Is that mostly one long walk or several smaller walks?
    As for my own chllenges halfway through the year, update to follow shortly!

  4. 365andMe ... I usually set my expectations too high, so I decided to go a bit lower this time! It feels good to be active again and I'm even feeling like kicking it up another notch now!

    Michelle ... It feels so good to get moving again! I have been dormant far too long!

    Tracy ... My 5 miles is a compilation of the entire day, but I do usually take at least one longer walk during the day, if not two. I saw you have posted your challenges, so I look forward to reading it!
