Tuesdays with Kerin: A Sleepy Update

Happy Wednesday!

So, I'm a little tardy to the party with this update, but life happens, right?  I hope you're all doing well! Apologies for the delayed update; I've been a bit under the weather lately, dealing with a touch of melancholy and some rough bouts of sleep paralysis. It's strange how these episodes come and go in waves. If anyone has tips on managing sleep paralysis, I'm all ears. It's been adding to my sleep anxiety, which isn't ideal.

Speaking of sleep, I've been popping these melatonin gummies like they're candy. They're like a little slice of sleep heaven, but I'm trying not to get too hooked. I mean, who wants to be dependent on gummies for shut-eye, right?  They've been a comfort, though, and I feel like they've been doing wonders for my rest. Last week, I actually surpassed my sleep goal, averaging a solid 7 hours per night! As I gear up for the sleep phase of my 30-day challenge, I'm realizing the importance of establishing a more consistent bedtime routine.

Switching gears to fitness, things have been chugging along smoothly. While there haven't been any groundbreaking personal records or distance achievements, I did have a thrilling interval session in my fresh pair of Hoka Mach 6 kicks. The difference in performance was noticeable from the get-go, and I can't wait to put them to the test in an upcoming race!

Reflecting on last week's challenge to delve into gratitude journaling, I found it to be a rewarding experience. In fact, I'm considering making it a weekly habit due to its positive impact. If you haven't given it a shot yet, I highly recommend giving it a try.

On the entertainment front, I finally caught Monkey Man last week, and let me tell you, it was a cinematic gem. Dev Patel rocked it in his directorial debut. Can't wait to see what he does next. My     Saturday was a delightful mix of a sisterly lunch outing and a not-so-spooky Saturday evening with Henry Cavill in The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare. I mean, if Henry Cavill is on screen, I'm there.

That's all from me for now. Until we meet again next week, take care!

Weekly Obsession: ShxtsnGigs has been my go-to podcast/YouTube channel lately, and it never fails to crack me up. Whether it's their banter or the random topics they dive into, I find myself hooked. From tuning in during my morning commute to winding down before bed, and yes, even during my running sessions, these two friends never fail to bring a smile to my face.

What I'm Reading: Admittedly, I still haven't managed to pick up The Idea of You again. It's still sitting in my reading queue on Audible, silently calling my name, but I haven't felt compelled to delve back in.

What I'm Watching: Last week, I finally wrapped up watching Ripley, and if you're curious about my thoughts, check out my review. I'm still watching Shogun and Tracker. A recent addition to my viewing schedule is The Chosen. I binge-watched the entire first season in a single day – I now understand why it has garnered such a massive following. Now that it's available on streaming, I rewatched Bob Marley: One Love. Although the subtitles were only mildly helpful, I did understand much more of the movie than I did the first time! I also rewatched Snatch, arguably Guy Ritchie's best movie, and it's still good. And I'll keep saying Brad Pitt should do more comedies!

Au Revoir
