Monthly Review: February 2020

I'm obsessed with

Workouts! I've finally started to get back into going to the gym consistently after a lot of disruption to the start of the year. I've started using the GZCL method for my lifting program, and I'm really enjoying having a bit more structure to my weights routine.

I'm listening to

A fair bit of Dance Pop, since I've found it's fun for exercising to.

I'm reading

A Darker Shade of Magic. I gave up on the last two books I started reading, because neither really grabbed me. I'm hoping this one will do the trick.

I'm watching

Whose Line Is It Anyway? I knew Aisha Tyler took over hosting and rebooted this 90s comedy favourite of mine, but I didn't realise it was still going. I happened to notice ABC's streaming site had a full season available so we gave it a go and found it's just as funny as ever. It regularly makes me laugh until I cry.

February goals

I didn't set goals for February because I was having trouble committing to anything. I decided instead to focus on working towards my 2020 goals this month. Here's an update on how those goals are going:
