2016 Reading List
One of my favorite parts of starting a new year is putting together my reading list of all the books I'd like to read in the next year. I've had this list put together for a while now, but am just now getting the chance to write it out for you. Here are the 20 book I hope to read this year...
Books I didn't get around to reading last year:
New fiction books to read this year:
Personal development books:
This is only a small selection of the books I would like to read. According to my Goodreads list I've currently got 236 new books to read...and it just keeps getting longer!!
The good news is that I already own all of the books listed above, so I won't have to wait for them to become available through the library or go pick them up at Barnes & Noble. That's what has seemed to hold me up in the past, but now I've got plenty of options to choose from.

I love this saying that I found in my Erin Condren planner: "Keep your head up, keep your heart strong". This is exactly how I want to approach the month of February! I am hoping to work hard and not give up regardless of how many challenges come my way.
The biggest example of me following this saying is by starting another round of 21 Day Fix today. This will be my third full round and I am excited to see what kind of results I can get. When I weighed myself this morning I was still down 17 pounds from my starting weight, so not a lot has changed over the last few weeks. I'm hoping to lose 8-10 pounds over the next 21 days so that I'm well on my way to my goal.
I will have the added challenge of being out of town on a work trip for four days next week. But I'm already planning on bringing my Shakeology packets with me so I can maintain healthy nutrition and I will also plan on doing my workouts in my hotel room. The hardest part will be choosing healthy foods to eat while eating out for all four days, but I'll just have to do my best!
For this round, I am planning on doing things a little differently than how I've done this program in the past. The biggest change is that I will be trying to follow the double-workout schedule for the third and final week. This is optional and I've never done it before, but I've heard it's a great way to fast-track your results.
This means that for my third week I will be doing two 30-minute workouts instead of just one workout each day. The plan explains that you need to do the workouts at different times to keep your metabolism revved up, so I'm hoping I can commit to such a challenging schedule. I'm going to give it my best, which is the most I can ask of myself!
I'll keep you posted each Monday on my progress and give you any tips & tricks I learn along the way.
Another goal I have for February is to bring more variety to my blog posts. I'm planning on posting about my upcoming cruise as well as sharing my 2016 reading list, so keep an eye out for those!
