The Sunday Post : Get your bookish news – November Goals

November 5, 2017 meme, The Sunday Post 37

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kim the Caffeinated Book Reviewer.  Grab a cuppa and let me bend your ear (eyes?) for a few minutes with all my bookish news.  A new month means time to set November Goals that move my life in the direction I want it to go.

Between My Sundays – what happened this week

November Goals

I like setting new goals every month as they keep me focused and on track.  They say if your goals don’t scare you, then they’re not big enough. My goals this month do intimidate me, but I’m shooting for them.

  • Run 7 miles (my longest run yet) by the end of Nov
  • Do a 30 day yoga challenge – (YouTube yoga with Adriene)
  • Continue tracking daily on My Fitness Pal.  Currently on a 144 day streak and determined not to break it.
  • Participate in HoHoHo readathon
  • Read 6 arcs, more on this in my State of the Arc post
  • Write reviews ASAP

 

My goals got off to a good start, but then I was struck with a migraine yesterday.  So I’ve already broken my 30 day yoga challenge.  But whatever I’ll just keep going, life happens.

Books I have received to review:

 

Thanks to Aria Fiction for The Girl I Used to Know.  I saw a comparison to Patricia Scanlan’s writing in the blurb and I couldn’t resist.

Books I have bought:

None.

Library Haul:

 

I can’t remember how I came across these but I saw them described as “Malory Towers for grown ups” which was all I needed to know.  And I’m nearly finished Class and have to agree that is exactly what they are.  Basically if  you love fun, heart-warming reads in a fab boarding school setting, then these are for you.

Calling that a wrap on this week.  Happy Reading to all.

    You’re so right about goals not being big enough if they don’t scare you. But lately I’ve been feeling ‘time’ is getting in the way of my goals. I just seem to have to little time to do the things I want. But I’ll keep trying. 😉
    Sorry to hear about your Migraine.. but unfortunately that’s definitely they way life is at times. Good luck with your goals!
    Have a great week and happy reading!

      I feel that about time too Maureen, but I’m trying to prioritise what I really want to do. And not just what I HAVE to do.

    I just discovered Yoga by Adriene and she’s good – very easy to follow. Not sure I’m up to a 30 challenge but it has encouraged me to do more again. Maybe you can start your challenge again or double up a day (does that count as cheating?)

      I love Adriene. I don’t mind missing 1 day, my overall aim is to just include yoga in my daily schedule, most of the time. Blips will always happen.

    Great list of goals for November! I hope you’ll can reach them all. I hope that Yoga course is fun.

    Sorry to hear about your migraine :(. I hate headaches, they can really ruin your day.

    Those books you got from your library sound good! Have a great week!

    Good to set goals. I don’t always get that done and then wish I had. So good luck with your goals. I hope you don’t have more migraines. I know they can be so hard to put up with.

    I have some Jenny Colgan books to read including one for HoHoHo Readathon I’ve been looking forward to reading. I hope you enjoy yours! Have a good week.

      Thank you! Ohh I might squeeze a Jenny Colgan book in to my HoHoHo too, if I get through the other Christmas books on my list. I’m dying to read more of her books now!

  5. Jackie B @ Death by Tsundoku

    Wow! I love that you set new goals each month.They are so ambitious, too!! I love setting goals, but I have a tendency to set them far higher than I can ever reach. How do you decide what goals to select for the month? Are you consistently hitting them?

    Congrats on not purchasing any new books this month! That’s always a challenge for me. I wish you the best getting through your reads this week.

    • trish

      I usually have something in mind that I want to achieve and just work my goals around that. I hit some, but not all of them! I like trying to set them high to challenge myself but don’t beat myself up if I fall short. But it feels so rewarding when I do meet them!

  6. Tanya @ Girl Plus Books

    I like how you set monthly goals… that’s great! But sorry to hear you’ve had to let one go due to a migraine. No fun. I hope it’s completely gone by now. I’ve had to take a giant step back from requesting ARCs. I found I was reading so many ARCs and abandoning all the books on my shelves that I truly wanted to read. It seemed so ridiculous when I realized it. So, I’m finishing up the last few ARC I have and then no more for a good long while. I feel like I’ve read something from Jenny Colgan before, but it’s been **years**. I feel the need to go look that up now… 🙂 Hope you have a great week!

      I’ve discovered that I love Jenny Colgan, and I can’t believe I’ve never read any of her books before. It’s hard to resist ARCs but when they take over your TBR then that’s no fun. Sounds like you have a system now that’s working well for you. I try to spread myself equally between library books, my own books and arcs and sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t!

  7. Brandie

    You got this, Trish!! I’m excited for you to run 7 miles!! I know you can do it, and it’ll feel so great to accomplish it!

  8. Karen Blue

    Your goals are really inspiring. 7 miles sounds like a BIG deal to me right now. I am not even running one consistently yet. I will get there, hopefully before there is too much snow on the ground.
    You did so good with acquiring so few books this month. My TBR is out of control right now with no signs of slowing down.
    Good luck with all your goals this month!

    I love setting goals as well and I might have to copy some of yours! I was totally supposed to post State of the Arc for October but since I was away at the end of the month and I didn’t open my laptop for blogging AT ALL it kind of went by the wayside. Oops. I also need to write reviews ASAP because while I wasn’t blogging I was actually READING. 😉

    Best of luck with your goals and I hope you achieve them all!!! Thanks for stopping by my blog!
