It's "LOSE," people. If you LOSE something, it's lost. You can't LOOSE something! It means it's LOOSE. Like a loose tooth. You can "LOOSEN" something. But you don't LOOSE it. *shudder
I hate that people mix these up. I mean, come on! I still see some of the smartest people I know mixing these two words up and I cringe, cringe, cringe every time I see it.
I'm joining a 100 Mile Fitness Challenge. I have to walk or run 100 miles between Feb. 1st and May 3rd. Since I'm preparing for my Walk Relay, I was very excited to sign up! If you'd like to do it, too, just send me an email and I'll get you the info.
My eating has NOT been going well. At all. I'm trying not to feel guilt. I'm trying not to think about how I'm not practicing what I preach. I'm trying not to think about the weight I'm not losing or the weight I've gained. It's hard, though. Very hard.
Books I'm reading/read:
Winning Mr. Wrong by Marie Higgins
Death On The Nile by Agatha Christie
Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford
The Shop on Blossom Street by Debbie Macomber
One Amazing Thing by Chitra Divakaruni
The Walk by Richard Paul Evans
Ireland by Frank Delaney
The Silence of God by Gale Sears
I canceled the maid this morning. They come every Monday and I have to admit, it's too much. I think I'm going to go to every-other-week. It's just too much pressure to get everything ready on a Monday morning. Maybe I'll change days. I mean, you wouldn't think it would be hard or be stressful to have a maid come, right? But the reality is that if I want them to do a good job, I have to have everything picked up and put away so they can do their job. I love that they clean stuff I never get to (deep cleaning the bathroom, the dusting, etc.), but it's still stressful. And Monday mornings don't need to be more stressful.
