Monday Morning Madness #49: Workouts, Shakespeare's Champion & Speaking Other Languages

Well, it looks like for once I'm finally going to get this post published in the actual morning. I'm a little worn out from my new workout routines last week. I have been exercising late at night with the intention to move it into the early mornings, but I haven't gotten around to it yet. I probably wait until tonight to do today's workout. There are days when I don't even want to exercise, but I somehow find a way to force myself. The good news is that I have lost 4 pounds since January 1st!

I did something I wasn't ever planning on doing - I shaved off my beard. I grew my beard around 14 or 15 years ago with the intention of never shaving it as my skin has a habit of breaking out when I shave. I can't explain it - I guess I just wanted to try something new, so I shaved it off. I have to admit that I do look a bit younger without my beard. Last week, I charged up my two old electric razors and used them, but they don't give a close shave. Today, I used a throwaway razor, which I didn't care for too much. However, I ordered a new electric razor on Friday, which I hope to receive sometime this week.

I plan on doing some personal reading this year; you know the books that I don't have to review on here. I went ahead and read 10 pages in Shakespeare's Champion by Charlaine Harris, one of the books I picked up at the thrift store over the weekend. Yeah, I know that 10 pages isn't a whole lot, but I only had about five minutes of free time to read yesterday. I do hope to read the entire book this week.

As I'm writing this I am staring at the "language" CD courses I have stacked on my desk. I had reviewed the French, Italian, German and French courses last year. Though I did learn a few words, things came up and I didn't have time to finish them. Hopefully, I'll have time sometime this year to learn the languages as part of the "A New Me In 2015" theme I have going on. Hey, you never know, if I get good at speaking other languages, maybe I can get a career as an International Translator, but that is probably just wishful thinking.
