Ufda, January was a doosey of a month. I packed a lot into these 31 days. I sincerely hope that life slows down in February because I'm kind of crying 'uncle' right now over how busy I feel.
Offshore: I'm so glad my friend Kelly recommended this as I've become totally hooked on this podcast. It explores 2 murders that happened in Hawaii 80 years apart. What connects these 2 murders is both deal with the topics of race and power. She sprinkles in a lot of history of the state of Hawaii which has been so interesting - especially since we'll be there for our honeymoon in May.
I read A LOT in January. 7 books! It was a crazy busy month, but I still read a lot as I had 8 flights and lots of nights alone in hotel rooms. This was one of the more pleasurable months of reading that I've had in as long as I can remember. I attribute this to the fact that I read whatever I wanted to read, instead of reading books I had to read to complete a reading challenge. The best books were When Breath Becomes Air and I'll Give You the Sun. My least favorite was The Wangs vs. the World.

This is the first month of solid workouts that I've had since my surgery last May. I still have work to do to get back to running, but it was great to feel like I was back at it this month. I did the Core de Force Beach Body program, which I loved as it was easy to do while traveling since it requires no equipment. I worked out 6 days a week despite my crazy travel schedule, which I'm proud of!
** crickets ** I've got nothing working sharing, sadly. I feel like I wore business suits so much of this month, which is my absolutely LEAST favorite outfit to wear. Besides that my outfits were all about warmth as January is the coldest month for us typically. Hopefully I'll have something worth sharing next month!
