This has been a bad week for blogging, I think. And reading. I have not finished a single book this week. I seem to start a million different books and not finish them. I think I have about 8 now on my currently reading shelf. I'm sure the week where I finish them all will look amazing in my stats, but for the moment I'm wondering, what is going on?!Do you ever do that? Hop from book to book and starting new ones, simply because they're shiny and you've been meaning to read them for a long time and suddenly you just really want to even though there's 3 other books you're currently reading?
I've discussed all the books I'm reading in a post about my February TBR pile. And I've, of course, participate in the Top Ten Tuesday meme: this week's topic was graphic novels.
I've almost had a panic attack yesterday while running. For the first time this year, I felt really good about it. My muscles weren't hurting, I felt like I could run forever. I was pushing myself not too hard, in fact I was feeling good. Then I glanced at my watch and saw my heart rate was approaching 180. It rarely does that. I immediately worried that I pushed myself too hard and started to slow. The heart rate went up to 184. Now, for some weird reason, I started to panic. I stopped running, why is it going up? 187. Uh-hoh. I stopped walking, stood still and took a deep breath. 191. WHY DOES IT CONTINUE GOING UP? My girlfriend just looked at me and said, it'll continue to go up if you continue panicking. I removed the heart rate strap and walked home and drank a glass of water. Still wondering what that was about?
Didn't do anything exciting on the kitchen front. I made a weird fajita soup. Which means I've browned chicken with onions and pepper, added fajita spices and broth, then kidney beans and rice and let it simmer for a bit.
I've been writing like crazy. Hopefully next week I'll manage to finish a few books and not start any new ones.
I hope everyone is having a great week!
Oh no, I'm so sorry about the panic attack and the bad week for reading and blogging! That's awful, and I know just how you feel; I often "book-hop" when I'm struggling with one book :( Shame, I hope this week goes better.ReplyDelete
But yay for all the writing!! That's brilliant! Hope you manage to keep it up :)

Thank you for stopping by :) Hope you have a brilliant week!Delete
I have had panic attacks, and they are truly scary. (Not in a while, however).ReplyDelete
Relax...don't worry about all that is staring you in the face (books, etc.).
Thanks for sharing, and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES
Yeah, I don't relax often enough, that is definitely true!Delete
I've done that. Sometimes you're just not sure which one to read! And sorry to hear about the panic attack. Sometimes I think monitoring our rate or stuff like that makes us more nervous! Like you said- why is it doing that?? Panic attacks are so weird the way they can be triggered by things.ReplyDelete
Hope you have a great week ahead and happy reading!
Yes, I think the monitoring doesn't help sometimes. And thank you for stopping by :)Delete
I do read multiple books at one time often, but that's usually only when one is like a non-fiction book, one might be slow so I only read a little at a time, and then there's the one I really want to read. HAHA! Sorry about the panic attack. Hope you don't experience that again. Have a great week!ReplyDelete

Thank you for stopping by :) I tend to have a non fiction book on the side as well!Delete
Sometimes you need a calm, level-headed friend to ground you at times like that - I know that when my anxiety threatens to overwhelm me, I sometimes need someone to just pull me out of my head and help me centre myself, otherwise it's just all too ease to keep sliding and sliding into the panic!ReplyDelete
I'm usually good at doing it myself, but I failed miserably at that point. Thank you for stopping by :)Delete
I've been in a sort of reading slump for the past week or two and I picked up and set aside several books. I finally decided to revisit a favorite series and that seems to be helping. The heart rate episode sounds scary. And naturally the more you worry about it the worse it gets. Probably wise that you just removed the monitor. Hope your week is off to a great start!ReplyDelete
Tanya @ Girl Plus Books
Which one is the favorite series you're revisiting? And, yes, removing the monitor probably was the only smart thing to do haha! Hope you have a great week, thank you for stopping by :)Delete
I picked up an old favorite - the Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout. It's a YA paranormal series and it never fails to entertain. :)Delete
Ha ha - I read multiple books all the time and have a few up right now that I really need to concentrate on getting some finished. I'm only up to five though, so not quite as bad as eight... I do like to have a fling with different books!ReplyDelete
I'm so sorry to hear about the panic while running - being fit doesn't mean that your HR doesn't go up though and I feel like if you were feeling fine it was Okay!!! Scary though. I hope it's been a better week for both running AND reading. Have you done any more 'treasure hunting' (geo style ;) )???
Chat again soon!
So sorry about the panic attacks! :/ that is scary..I hope that doesn't happen again. I've noticed that even more than physical exertion, it's emotional stuff, fear and nervousness that makes my heart rate go up.ReplyDelete
As for reading, I've been kinda in a slump too and currently reading 4 books at a time so obviously haven't read much of any of them :P
