Catch Up

It's been about a month since my last post and man, am I doing better. It's kind of remarkable what time can do. I still have some sad moments, but as a whole I feel mighty fine. I have been working out every day and eating mostly all natural, low sodium, gluten free food. That pairing has made a world of difference. I had been running nearly every day, but I got shin splints... so now I am resting my legs for a month. Two weeks to go! I'm very excited to run again. I very recently bought a new pair of running shoes and a pair of Vikram FiveFingers. I would really like to start running in those if my body will let me.

Sooo, the books I have read! I am still not mentally at the point I had been for reading. I find myself drifting off a lot or getting massively tired when I sit down to read. Hopefully this aspect of my life will also get back to normal soon :) Here are some quick reviews of the novels I have read in the past month:

The Amityville HorrorThe Amityville Horror by Jay Anson- Watch the movies. The old one and the new one with Ryan Reynolds. The book is not very good or scary. It's also written in a very odd way. It's worth reading if you have extra time and read tons of books. Otherwise skip it.
Rating: 4/10

Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood PalLamb by Christopher Moore- Hilarious! Christopher Moore is fabulous and rarely has written anything other than awesome. I think if I knew the bible better I would have liked this even better. But as it stands, I have no bible knowledge (pretty much) and I still loved it. If you have never read a Moore novel, go do so. Now!
Rating: 8/10

Currently I am reading Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. I'm about halfway through it. Liking it quite a bit. I thought given my recent life situations it would be fitting or at least relatable. Both these assumptions were true.

I hope you all have a lovely summer day :)
