Monthly Rewind: June 2015 + July TBR


June in one word:
Struggle

June has been a difficult month, kind of. I've struggled with a few personal issues, and struggled to lose more weight (I only lost 2.5lbs this month.) And I've also struggled with reading. One afternoon I went on a run and as the thoughts overwhelmed me, I began to sob. I was running and crying and it felt like my heart and lungs were both going to explode. But I got through it and when I was done with my run, I felt so much better. I had thought things through and realized that what is really important, is doing things that make me happy. Because this is my life and I'm the one who will live it. With that being said, June also had some very great moments and I am looking forward to more of those this summer.
5 Things that Happened in June

1. I tried a pre workout and it was really weird
2. I went to a Crossfit class and it kicked my butt but I am ready to join
3. Despite all the sad stuff, I laughed a lot and that's something I should note
4. Was dog sitting for a few days, which was fun and bird sitting as well (and they had baby birds!)
5. Did a lot of cardio (running, walking, bike riding, and hiking)

New Books on my shelf


I decided it was time to start requesting some books for reviewing, and even though it was a slow reading month for me in June, I am excited to get to some of the review books I got and am looking forward to reading them


For review:
Absolutely True Lies by Rachel Stuhler
Very in Pieces by Megan Frazer Blakemore
Madly (The Potion Trilogy #1) by Amy Alward
A Curious Beginning: A Veronica Speedwell Mystery by Deanna Raybourn


Reading Goals


Except for the comic books, I finished both books I wanted to get through during June (Drive Me Crazy and All the Bright Places.) Since I have a few review books, I am hoping to get through all four of them this month, maybe one more but we will see.

  1. I'm sorry to hear you were dealing with some tough things in June. I hope July is better for you! <3

    2.5 pounds is still a really good loss!!! I've lost 32 pounds of my pregnancy weight so far, but still have about 40 more to go. Some months, I only lose about 2 pounds or so too, but a loss is still a loss. :)

    Oooh, Absolutely True Lies is on my TBR list. The author is from my hometown and it sounds SO CUTE! Enjoy!
