That’s A Wrap: June
Well, guys June is over, which means the first half of 2017 is over. Crazy, I know. Back in January I made some goals and have been working on them, some are still works in progress and some I feel I achieved. From March 2016-March 2017 I lost 145 lbs. I have kept it off and work hard at continuing to keep it off. I am still working on the emotional eating issues, though that too is getting easier as the time goes on. Also, this month my son turned 17, I picked up a new hobby/sport (kayaking) and did the usual of work, and household chores. Spent a day at Greenfield Village with my cousin and her son too which was super fun. A few fun things thrown in the mix and a good amount of reading. Had a few personal issues that made this month pretty stressful but mostly it was an alright month. How was your June? Any big summer plans coming up?

This month, was a very good one for me on Instagram. I got my follower count above 200, though I still have fairly low comments and likes in relation to the amount of people who are following, though that’s probably more to the
hated dreaded algorithm then anything else, because looking at other accounts, interaction seems to be down among everybody. I was pretty happy with this month’s winner, which I posted for the 20th anniversary of Harry Potter and The Sorcerers Stone. Total of 87 likes.
Book of the month: Tied this month were One of Us Is Lying and Emma In the Night
TV Show: Still Grimm, though honestly I don’t watch too much tv.
Movie: Wonder Woman, I thought it was excellent
Moment: spent a very quiet and peaceful morning kayaking on a small lake near my house.
Project: putting in a stepping stone walkway from our driveway to front porch
Activity: Took a day trip to Harsen’s Island, had lunch overlooking the lake and zipped around on the motorcycle.
PS. Everyone on my Facebook page wanted to know where I got the cute bathing suit I’m wearing in the kayak photo, figured I share the link, you can get it here
