Daily Book Challenge

When I was little I used to read all the time. I gobbled up the Magic Treehouse series in early elementary school, switching to the Boxcar Children and then the Babysitters’ Club.

By high school, I was making my through the classics, from Pride and Prejudice to Jane Eyre to Dracula and Dorian Gray. In the summertime my family would move up to a lake in Maine from June until August, and people would invariably find me with a nose in a book sprawled out on the couch, the lawn, or the dock.

Somewhere along the way, I have lost that literary veracity. In college my nights were spent reading for homework, not for pleasure. Ditto for graduate school.

However, now that my free time has become more my own, I want to delve back into the world of the written world. This challenge should help me do that!

Daily 5 Mile Challenge

Committed to walking 10,000 steps every day. I was successful 26 out of the 30 days!

I honestly believe walking is the best thing anyone can do for both mental clarity and physical fitness. It’s relaxing, restorative, and leaves enough leftover brain power to call friends and family, watch for wildlife, or be alone with your own thoughts.

Still, 5 miles a day is a lot. I’m a slow walker, and each day required over 90 minutes of foot in front of foot action, keeping track either with my Fitbit, All Trails app, or Map My Walk app.
