January In Numbers
January, where did you go? It feels like I spent most of the month in my office, buried in tax prep. Ugh. But I did manage to get out now and again, so I thought I'd share my January in numbers, and link up with the fabulous Deena at Shoes To Shiraz.
I just passed day 300 of my Invisalign treatment. Although ten months have gone by pretty quickly, there are moments every day when I want to rip them out and be done. I've already seen a huge difference though, so I'll press on.
Zero dollars spent on clothes. None, nada, zilch. For now I'm having fun going through my closet and remixing pieces. I'd like to keep it up for a few more months, but pretty spring things may start calling my name. Must stay out of stores.
We've had 5 days of snow, and 15 sunny days. Which means not a whole lot of rain. Super weird for January, but I'm loving sunrises and sunsets like these.
I worked out 25 days this month. I'm very committed to a #bettermeby50, and exercising is a huge part of the equation. I'm mixing yoga, cardio and strength training so I don't get bored. Now if somebody could please take away the chocolate....
College boy was home for 23 days (8 in January) before heading back for second semester. I loved all the activity at home, with kids coming and going. Saying goodbye was hard, but spring break will be here soon.
1 haircut and 1 color appointment. I feel like a new woman.
4 lunch/coffee dates with friends. I needed to get out of my office cave every once in a while, and my friends were kind enough to listen to me complain about taxes.
We saw 2 movies - Passengers and LaLaLand. Enjoyed them both, because Chris Pratt and Ryan Gosling. And singing and dancing and suspense and romance. Plus the popcorn was yummy.
And....I actually read 2 books too! The first was The Year We Turned 40, and it was just so-so. I wish they would have fleshed the characters out a bit more, but the concept was interesting. I just finished All The Stars In The Heavens by Adriana Trigiani. She's one of my favorite authors, although this book was different than her usual style. It was kind of historical fiction, with Clark Gable and Loretta Young the main stars of the story. Definitely a good read!
(Speaking of reading, there's still time to join the Blended Blog's virtual book club. We're just picking our first books, and we'd love to have you join us).
Happy weekend, friends!
