the weekly chase #6

Road Runner Girl

Weekly goals for May 5–11; recap

Goal #1 - Log all of my food/calories on MyFitnessPal. Not specifically to stay under my calories every day, but just to get back into the habit of doing it every day. Eventually the goal will be to stay under my daily allotted calories, but one step at a time, people ;)


Goal #2 - Get the house cleaned up for when the family comes over to celebrate Mother's Day on Saturday (clean bathrooms, wash floors, clean off kitchen and dining room tables, vacuum, etc.)


Goal #3 - Start reading a new book. I love reading, but sometimes, I get out of the habit because I'm spending my time watching tv instead. I usually get most of my reading done on my commute to and from work, but sometimes I get into streaming missed tv shows on Hulu, which stunts my reading. Sometimes, I think it's ok to stream, but I shouldn't be doing it both ways for an entire week. Plus, when I start a book that's good, I get really involved and invested and have trouble putting it down. All it really takes is for me to start and get a few chapters in. I recently finished the second book (out of six) in the Kenzie-Gennaro novel series by Dennis Lehane, so I'd like to keep that going and finish up the series. I'd read Gone, Baby, Gone a while back, but plan on re-reading it in the order the books were written. I honestly was unaware that it was part of a series when I read it, I had just wanted to read it before watching the movie. I feel like you can read each of the books on their own without having read any of the others, in any order (as I read Gone, Baby, Gone without any issues), and still understand everything, but I enjoy reading series in the order they were written.

Check! I started, and finished, Sacred by Dennis Lehane. I'm now reading Gone, Baby, Gone. Like I said, once I get started I can't stop.

Oh my, you guys! I actually stuck to all three goals. I'm so proud of myself ;)

Weekly goals for May 12–18

Goal #1 - Continue to log all of my calories in My Fitness Pal.

Goal #2 - Catch up on my blog reading. I've fallen a bit behind, again. There's just too much good reading for me to keep up!

Goal #3 – Organize my bookmarks and reading list on my computer.

Goal #4 – Clean the office. 

Thanks to Mindy over at Road Runner Girl for hosting this week's Weekly Chase. I hope everyone has a great week!


  1. Since I stopped commuting into NYC I've actually really missed my commuting reading time! I'm the same way though, if I start a good book I can't put it down!

    1. I much prefer taking the train into the city rather than driving – not only does it take away some extra stress (traffic and dumb drivers), saves some cash, but it allows me to squeeze in a lot of reading, which is great. Have you read anything recently that you would suggest? I'm always on the lookout for new books to add to my (extremely long) Goodreads 'to read' list...
