The Sunday Post : Get your bookish news – the struggle is real

November 12, 2017 meme, The Sunday Post 17

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.  This week my main feel was the struggle is real.

Between My Sundays – what happened this week

the struggle is real

November started full of great intentions for me.  But thanks to headaches, dark evenings and lack of motivation to read, it quickly disintegrated into the struggle is real  kind of week.  Somehow, I pulled myself kicking and screaming out of my funk on Wed morning and got back into my exercise routine which helped.  Still the headaches lingered on, and I basically got no reading done, apart from audiobooks.

I practised yoga Wed, Thurs, Fri and Sat.  So I missed a few days, but I’m realising that yoga 4/5 times a week rather than everyday fits better into my schedule.  No guilt allowed though as this is my me-time, and I refuse to get bothered by how long it takes me to do the 30 day challenge.

On Saturday, I indulged in a little online retail therapy.  New clothes and a new planner definitely meant my week ended better than it started.  I’m writing this Saturday night, and my plan is to cosy up by fire and read my first HoHoHoRAT book – Dashing Through the Snow.

Library Haul:

 

This is my second time borrowing the audiobook of Bring Her Home from the library.  This time I’m actually reading it, and finding it fraught from tension.  So I’m really enjoying it.

I also pounced on Don’t Close Your Eyes as I enjoyed Holly Seddon’s debut novel Try Not To Breathe

    Sorry to hear that this week was a bit of a struggle for you. Headaches are always so annoying and that’s sad you haven’t been in the mood to read.

    That sounds like a good attitude to have toward the yoga, 4 times a week already sounds great. You have to do how it works for you.

    That’s nice your online retail therapy ended the week on a better note at least. I hope next week is better for you!

    Headaches are horrible to deal with, and with the time change it doesn’t help either. Hope it gets better for you. Enjoy the books you picked up this week. Bring Her Home is one that I am curious about, I’ve seen it on Amazon. Happy reading.

    Thank you for stopping by my Sunday Post

    Sorry you’ve continued to struggle with headaches, Trish 🙁 I had one of those days this week, too. I’ve just had too much going on, and I guess my body had to find a way to make me slow down.
    I hope next week will be headache-free, and that there will be no struggle!
    Happy reading and listening!

    Nothing worse than being struck down like you were this last week. Hope it has improved. I looked at the thirty day challenge for yoga but too difficult for me – yet. I found her Beginners 40 minute video and that is so much more me. I felt a heap better after doing it.

    A little Retail Therapy always makes me feel better. I especially love buying new planners and notebooks – they always make me feel like I’m getting a fresh start on whatever has been plaguing me 🙂 Hope you enjoy the HoHoHo Readathon – can’t wait to see what good books you find!

    Headaches are one of the things I dread. Having a cold or something like that, at least you can go to bed but with headaches I find I can’t sleep or settle. I definitely wouldn’t be able to do yoga! Hope you feel better this week x
