Hey There Friends! How’s it goin?
Have you ever gotten so engrossed in a book that you literally lose all sense of place and time?
Well that happened to me yesterday 😕 Which is why my Sunday was almost non-existent and I didn’t post the recap of my goals for last week 😳
What amazing book is this you ask?
Well, it’s Rich Dad, Poor Dad
I started off reading the book, but in an effort to multi-task (i.e. write yesterday’s post and still ‘read’ the book) I decided to listen to it instead.
I don’t usually do audio books, but I think I’ll have to start making an exception for non fiction! I found it much easier to really think about what I was learning when I wasn’t focused on actually reading.
So I guess I wasn’t really reading all day, but still, I never got around to actually writing a thing 😳
I’m not gonna do a review of the book but I will say that I (re-)learned something a little unexpected in the last chapters of the book:
This spoke to me when I heard it. Not because it negates the importance of education and learning your trade – which it doesn’t. But because it stresses the importance of being bold.
Of taking chances.
Of putting yourself out there.
Of believing in yourself.
Of risking it all for a chance of success.
Which is something I need to do more of.
But anyway, if you haven’t read Rich Dad, Poor Dad yet, you should. And if you wanna give the audio a try, here’s the one I listened to!
You will not regret it!
Recap of last Week’s Goals
Two new veggies
I totally rocked this! I made stir fry with my brussel sprouts and peppers and sweet potato pizza (still perfecting the recipe!) with peppers the peppers as toppings.
I also took it one step further and added a new fruit to my menu last week: green apples. I’ve never really liked these cuz they’re a little sour but I put them in my oatmeal last last week, topped it with cinnamon and it was really good! 😀
I definitely fell short on both of these goals – by a day each! I have no idea why it’s so hard to get my but to the gym just three times a week these days 😕 I’m pretty sure it’s the cold 😐
This week I’m just gonna walk everywhere with a packed gym bag and not give myself a chance to come home and get warm before the gym! Here’s to hoping that works 😀
Goals for this week
Since I’m having so much trouble on the workout side of these goals, I’m just gonna focus on those!
Also, I just noticed that the backgrounds for my weekly goals all have something to do with warmth and sunshine 😆
My subconscious is clearly screaming for Spring to come quickly! 😉
