Song mood: Left Hand Free by alt-J. I’m debating on going to their concert when they are in Omaha on 21 March. But then, I probably won’t go just because I’m trying to save money for the next big adventure.
I finished Magpie Murders by Anthony Horowitz. It was real good. I’m curious on how the BBC adapts the book into a television series. I enjoyed the book.
I think I’m a bit burned out on murder mysteries. So, I’m currently listening to The Poison Eaters and Other Stories by Holly Black. I read two of her trilogies before. I’ve read The Folk of the Air trilogy and the Curseworker’s trilogy. Both were fantastic. Holly Black writes YA fantasy. Since I read a few of her books before, this collection of short stories was a safe bet.
I will still work on the disappearance mystery that I was writing before. It’s import to finish that project soon. So tomorrow, I will get some writing done. I figured out who did it, though I haven’t given the character a name yet. I also figured out how the main protagonist gets from Seattle to London. And now I just figured how the other main protagonist gets the other to the British Library. My favorite part of the novel will be when the guy sneaks up on the woman and says, ‘Good day, mate.’ She wasn’t expecting that and so she jumps. I think this will be closer to a thriller than a mystery.
Did my Costco shopping today. Gluten free products are much cheaper at Costco, so I’ll give it a try, at least for a day or two. I bought gluten free bread and sweet potato crisps.
This week will be on the warmer side, so I’m sure that I will be walking at the lake. I’m thinking I should start running. I really want to get down to 170lbs(77kg). The only way to do that is get into calorie deficit. The easier way to do that is get the heart up and to sweat. So running is a good idea.
On Friday, my six weeks without alcohol will be up. I think I will make the switch to red wine. Mainly because red wine is lower in sugar.
It was fun to hang out with my bestie from college at the Tea Smith. We worked on my Wordle for the day. It was a tough one. Today was a tough one as well. I was able to form a different strategy. I think certain games are good at making us think differently.
I had some major headaches this weekend. I think I need to drink more water and the headaches won’t be as bad.
So yeah, this next week, I will work on my mystery. I will work on getting my heart rate up so I can lose weight. I will enjoy the warmer weather.
