Reading HP by the lazy river, as drunk guys accost my 15-year-old sister.
Feeling sorry for myself.
I'm Celeste, a magazine editor living in Phoenix.
Get ready for a lot of fitness, a lot of sass and a lot of froyo.
I wish Harry Potter was real.
Best gym visit ever?
Blasting The Rolling Stones with the windows down. Noah’s enjoying the breeze and the tunes.
Life is good.
Now, time to watch Prisoner of Azkaban. So happy Leah is reading Harry Potter.
Harry Potter, frozen yogurt and nail painting with Leah.
Beat Friday night ever.
I just finished Harry Potter.
In honor of America, today I rode my bike a lot, ate a huge cookie and drank a lot of water. Happy Fourth!
Anyway … today was fantastic. Riding is a lovely way to start my day. Then I watched some Harry Potter, finished the fourth HP book, went out to dinner with my mom and sisters, then saw some friends at a barbecue. Now, Jo and I are going to watch True Grit. Being a teacher has its perks for sure!
Celeste Gives Up Challenge 1: Dehydration
Day One: 114 ounces (to be updated at bedtime)
I did not drink enough on my bike ride. Like, 16 ounces over three hours. Unacceptable. Next time I’ll take an extra water bottle and put it in my jersey. And I’ll just have to come up with a solution to peeing on long rides, ha.
Otherwise, hydration was A+. I made a very conscious effort to drink a lot of water throughout the day.
Monday, July 4 exercise log:
- Bike: 38 miles at 6 a.m.
- Home: 100 push ups, 100 triceps chair dips
Just reading some HP before dinner…
Josiah is at band practice, so I’m doing whatever the eff I want.
- Walk on treadmill AKA watch TV
- Paint my nails
- Watch HP2 (I’ve only seen the first movie)
- Eat some delicious snacks
- Read HP3
- Go to bed at a reasonable hour so I can run in the morning
So, I’m tutoring a fifth grader this summer, and she’s reading the last Harry Potter book. Being a fantastic tutor, I am reading along with her to provide discussion and whatnot.
The issue: I’ve never read the other HP books! (Well, I read the first book like 10 years ago, but obviously don’t remember anything.)
I borrowed the first book from her yesterday evening, and I’m just over halfway done. It’s been a lot of fun to read something light and fun … especially compared the the sports nutrition books I’ve been eating alive lately haha.
So yes, consider me a Harry Potter fan now (much to Jo’s dismay). Thirteen years later!
The only bummer is that I’m probably going to finish Deathly Hallows before I’ve read the rest of the series. Oh well ha.
