Reader's Workout #12


Good day and welcome to my 12th link up with Joy at Joy's Book Blog for her Reader's Workouts series!

So, I decided that combining my book blog with this one wasn’t a great idea. The Reader’s Workout linkup will remain here. I had been cross-posting but for anyone used to seeing this at Novel Meals, this is the new home. Last time I didn’t post here so I have pasted #11 at the end of this post.

I am over a cold (or very wicked allergies) which kept me inside 1 morning. In spite of diminished lung capacity from my illness and the thick-as-snot humidity – we walked every morning! Getting in almost 7,000 steps before noon is pretty good. For us. Our spoiled female shiba inu Aja has joined us several mornings. That’s a slower walk but it’s also a great warm up.

Since I sit so much at work I am trying to be more conscientious about getting up and stretching more. I take the stairs when I need to go to legal to drop anything off, avoiding elevators as much as possible. I hate them anyway and worry about getting stuck inside so it benefits me to climb stairs for that reason alone!

Currently reading Ian Rankin’s mystery Witch and just finishing up Craig Johnson’s Wait for Signs.

All my future participation in Joy’s Reader’s Workout will be right here. Hope your weekly exercise and reading experiences are good.

Boring old report from me this week. We are still walking daily with the exception of one horrible day after we’d had to put our beloved dog to sleep. Still heartbroken but knowing we will move on, we have resumed our daily walking routine. I’d like to incorporate something else into our exercise routine but I don’t know what.
I tried yoga and am still getting an occasional twinge from tearing fibers I my left leg. That’s supposed to be relaxing! I don’t like running so that’s out. Maybe some sit-ups.
Currently reading a Jane Green novel, just finished The Dynamite Room by Jason Hewitt.)

Glad to see you at this blog! I hope you're feeling better soon. I had a down day today -- it may be allergies, too.

Thank you, Joy. Maybe this crazy weather pattern is effecting us all, allergy wise.

We are finally having some hot, sunny days. All the rain was just wearing on me.

Rain can be depressing. I would need a treadmill if we had it too much but even then, the weather can get you down.

Taking a short break thanks to influenza

I had my tea brack post scheduled for yesterday to participate in Beth Fish Reads Weekend Cooking event. We went camping earlier in the week...
