Picked this up since it is on the longlist for the national book award. I really enjoyed reading about Mads as she figured out who she is and about her family history. Secrets always have a way of coming out.

I spent a lot of time this week reading and spending time with my favorite people. My exercise and nutrition took a back seat. I did go for a very short run after a yoga session at the resort. It was a fabulous week! Great way to end my summer vacation. Next week I‘ll start fresh!

Just finished my first Elin Hilderbrand book. It was the perfect beach read for my beach vacation. I loved the characters and their family dynamics, the time period is also a favorite. My favorite aspect of the book was the use of song titles instead of chapter numbers. A kind of soundtrack as you read the story.

Crazy week packing for vacation, planning and executing my son‘s 7th birthday party and traveling 10 hours to the beach. I still managed to run 8 miles and finish 2 audiobooks, in addition to recording everything I ate.

Looking forward to relaxing this coming week and working on making some dietary changes! Thanks team #namastepositive! Such a positive and encouraging group! Lucky to be a part of this team!

I‘ve been reading a lot of YA and middle grade lit gearing up for this school year. This is by far the best one I have read all summer! It‘s the true story of Sophie Scholl and the White Roses. It‘s written in verse, which I love and is an easy sell to my students. If you like reading about WWII or brave young women, check this out!

Week 3 check-in: Almost finished with this one. 100 pages to go. Didn‘t quite meet my fitness goal; ran 6 miles this week. My schedule was off and it just didn‘t happen. Next week will be better! Did not finish any books this week, so I am still at 5/7. My reading is coming along. Thank you summer break!

Excellent story about tolerance as told from the perspective of Red, an oak tree with 216 rings. This may be a front runner for the first first-chapter Friday of the 2019-2020 school year.
