Last night, I attempted to start our book club book â€“ One Day â€“ but was immediately turned off within the first 10 pages. I guess I just wasnâ€™t in the mood for a romance novel. I wanted blood, revolution, and intrigue. Hence â€“ Mockingjay.
So far, so good! I really love The Hunger Games triology. Iâ€™ve always liked books about dystopias (The Handmaidâ€™s Tale, anyone? Best book ever). The only trouble was that Mockingjay gave me nightmares. I dreamt that I was stuck in an arena, forced to hunt down this kid from high school â€“ I havenâ€™t even thought of this person since 2002; so weird how the mind works â€“ with a bow and arrows. I woke up at 5 AM in a cold sweat and couldnâ€™t go back to sleep.
One Pumpkin Spice Latte to the face later (sorry, green tea), I am feeling much, much better.
Plus â€“ itâ€™s GAME DAY!
A simple breakfast because I was â€“ of course â€“ running late:
In the mix:
Itâ€™s dreary out, but Iâ€™m hoping the weather will clear. I would love to spend some time outside on Labor Day.
Stay tuned â€“ after a month of taking it easy so I could focus on work, Iâ€™m officially getting back on the exercise train, and Iâ€™ll be posting my Back to Track Plan later today. Iâ€™m excited to get focused again. After all, Iâ€™ve got two triathlons coming up! Gulp.
