Week ReviewThe Week in Review is where I combine Stacking the Shelves, The Sunday Post and It’s Monday! What are you reading? ย If you have never joined in on these meme’s you can check them out by clicking on the meme and it will take you to the host blog.

Well, this week has been pretty quiet. Not much going on at my job as it’s been really slow and low man on the totem pole, which is me, gets sent home early. Oh well, I was just lucky they kept me when they normally lay off the seasonal workers in Dec. ๐Ÿ™‚

I enjoyed the nice weather we had here and felt sorry for those who got snowed in. This weekend now it’s back to being cold and we have a chance of snow, but hopefully if they are right it’s just a dusting. I am so reading for spring!!! ๐Ÿ™‚


So I haven’t been doing very well with this. I really need to get one of those pedometers so I can count my steps. I did get on the treadmill a couple times this week for a few minutes..not sure why it is so much harder for me to walk a treadmill than to just take a walk..I can walk a mile no problem if I just go for a walk but on a treadmill I feel like I am dying after three minutes…lol.

Does getting in wood every day count for exercise cause it sure wears me Okay so I really need to get series about this stuff..I need to lose a lot of weight but I have a hard time motivating myself..will try better next week. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. I have Soul Meaning on my kindle, too, Stormi and it’s been there for a very long time. Maybe 2015 will be the year I finally read it?
    I have trouble motivating myself to work out, too. I don’t know why – we have a full gym in the basement thanks to my very sporty husband. There’s a stationary bike, an elliptical, free-weights, medicine balls, mats… I’m just being way too lazy these days.
    I hope you’re enjoying your weekend. Happy reading.

      Maybe we will both read Soul Meaning this ๐Ÿ™‚ Man I wish I had a place for workout equipment. That is one of the problems, my elliptical is in a place that during the winter it sort of gets wood crammed in front of it so I can’t get to it to use

    • Stormi

      Thanks, I love making the most of my coupons. ๐Ÿ™‚ Yeah I love watching that show on netflix too so I was really curious about the books. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Getting in wood sounds like it should count as exercise! It sounds like it’d be exhausting. I’ve been thinking about a pedometer as well and have thought about a FitBit or the equivalent. I definitely need to do something to be more active. Hope you enjoy Cocaine Blues! I read it not too long ago and liked it. The descriptions of the clothes were amazing. Enjoy your new books and have a great week!

    • Stormi

      I think it works good for biceps. ๐Ÿ™‚ I would love to have a fitbit but they are above my cost. ๐Ÿ™ I am happy to know that you like Cocaine Blues, I love the show on netflix. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Stormi

      I grabbed up Ever Darkening and then Michelle didn’t like so now I am I hope I like it. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. If you are training for a specific event then carrying wood probably won’t help; but if the focus is burning calories any movement helps and counts.

    Going for a walk is more interesting than the treadmill and you are probably fatigued through boredom. I find I cannot read on a t-mill so I list to a book. But, I am not running these days because I want to run outside not inside. I just do arc trainer and elliptical.

    • Stormi

      I’m just burning those calories..I am to large to train for an ๐Ÿ™‚ I try to listen to a book on the treadmill but I still can’t seem to be on there long before I am like…is my time up

    • Stormi

      I am not really liking Seeker but I am trying really hard not to DNF it..I just don’t get it..I have so many unanswered questions that I feel are not going to actually be answered. ๐Ÿ™

  4. I’m terrible with the exercise thing too. I started doing Piyo = Pilates and Yoga it’s low impact and a it’s a good workout that I can do in the quiet of my own home. I am not a treadmill fan at all. I kind of want a spin bike. I just don’t know where I would put it. I could read while I rode it though so that’s a plus. You could always listen to audio books while you walk.
    I’m really excited for Seeker and Red Queen. Just so many negative reviews. It’s a good thing you read many books at once I should be able to catch up. It’s so much more fun to read with a buddy.
    You had a awesome week!!!!!
    I hope you have a fantastic week!!!!

    • Stormi

      Mandy, I like your liking Seeker way more than me..I would probably DNF it if it wasn’t for the fact we are reading it
