Update 19/01/2022

Happy Wednesday everyone, I hope you’ve all had an excellent week so far. The weekend isn’t far away. Film-wise, I’ve not got that much planned. It’s Nightmare Alley and A Journal for Jordan in the cinema, both of which I’m planning to watch on Saturday. Other than that it’s catching up on some older films and filling in some gaps to try and get ahead on reviews.

The good news on that front is that I’ve got 4 full reviews written and ready to go, giving me a bit of breathing room if I don’t have time to watch something. I’m still working on getting more and more ready in advance. It means that I will never miss a post, and at the same time hopefully mean they’re better written since I have more time to write them and go over them.

I haven’t read anything since last week, which is frustrating, because I really wanted to start the year strong on the reading front. I just need to sit down and do it, but I’m focusing on getting ahead on the films at the moment. When I’m not working, I’m watching films and writing about them. I also have a plan for a new type of post that I can put up at some point. I’m still working on it, but something new will be coming at some point.

For the fitness update, I’ve kept up my walking pretty nicely. My watch has upped the challenge again to 13,000 steps a day and I haven’t missed a target in a few weeks now. I feel like I’m getting fitter, though maybe not visibly slimmer. It’s slow progress, but I’m feeling the benefits. At the start of the year I went for a walk that was around 6 miles, and by the end of it, I was dead on my feet. I walked 5 and a half miles yesterday and could have continued without any problem. Most of it’s indoors on the treadmill, but I’m trying to do one longer outdoor walk each week as well.

What’s everyone else’s plans for the week? Let me know in the comments.

Thanks for reading and until next time,

  1. Good job on all front! Creativity and keeping active on your feet, I might have to follow suit and recount my steps again. Cheers!

  2. This week my goal is to find a new place to live. Both my husband and I have been looking (and our daughter and son-in-law, too). It’s proving very hard since we have five pets.:-( But if it comes to it, we can camp out at our daughter’s/son-in-law’s house until we find a place. Good for you for meeting those fitness targets, awesome!
