Books make me happy

I don't think I've gushed about my love with the Mistborn trilogy by Brandon Sanderson on the blog, but I know twitter got an earful, or would that be eyeful? Either way I wrote a review about it for Nevermet Press, please go read it. I plan on writing a few more reviews for them on recent reads, so there might be a post or two about books coming up.

Five for Tuesday

1. The Hunger Games trilogy is as good as the hype said it'd be. I'm firmly on team Peeta.
2. I finally got pushed by shifu in kung fu. The push is to check for a strong stance and back hand.
3. I didn't maintain over the festive season, but am back on track. The plan has been amended to fewer carbs and more protein - it's to check if the carbs could be behind the tiredness.
4. Brandon Sanderson has joined my list of authors where whatever they write, I'll read.
5. My last day of being 26 will end with dinner and rpging with friends :-).

The challenge

So far it's going well and it looks like I could be winning :). I was introduced to Fitocracy by a friend, and I find it fun. It's well worth checking out, you get points for completing exercise, not to forget levels and achievements :). So far the cardio dvd's have been going well, they're pretty tough, and I hope that by the end of the challenge I can finish one of the routines without too much huffing and puffing. On the plus side kung fu is starting again tonight :D Cross your fingers that I keep up for most of the class.

Challenge day 2

Sadly having a dinner guest over, last night meant no exercise. Today though, I made good use of one of the three Women's Health exercise dvds I've acquired with the magazine. The plan is to alternate between the discs on non kung fu days. Added bonus, Jerall will be doing the cardio exercises with me :-) Here's hoping I stick to the plan and win.

It's on

Today my manager and I were chatting about how hard we find getting into, and sticking to, a regular exercise routine. What initially was a "we'll each remind the other" conversation, turned into a bit of a competition. So from today till the 31st we'll be competing to see who manages to do some form of exercise regularly.

We're not looking at weight or centimeters lost, it's all about getting regular exercise. To make sure that neither of us brushes it off we decided that the loser will buy the winner a smoothie. It should be fun, and I'll win :-).
