Unsolved Mysteries

Yep, I’m talking about the show from the late 80’s and 90’s. I remember watching it as a kid and being intrigued by the paranormal stories – they were always my favorite although I was always scared to go to bed later. My favorite ones were when siblings who were adopted found each other again as adults.

I have access to it on Amazon Prime. This week I’ve watched more episodes than I’d like to admit. The hair, clothes, and makeup are so cheesy. The cases have been updated relatively recently, so it’s kind of nice to see what’s happened to the people involved in the cases featured. The sad ones for me are the missing persons stories that still have no resolution. I can’t imagine what it would be like to have a family member missing and not know what happened to them.

The Girl on the Train

The Girl on the Train

Earlier this week I finished reading The Girl on the Train (affiliate link) and I really enjoyed it. I don’t want to give too much away, so all I’ll say is that it’s a thriller that draws you in right from the beginning. While I ended up figuring out who the killer was about half way through, it was still fun to finish it and realize that I was right. It’s a fairly quick read, so it’s perfect for when you don’t want something that’s going to last forever. To check out more books that I’ve enjoyed, have a look at my books page.

I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned it in a previous Friday Favorites post, but I read The Girl on the Train on Libby, an app that my library supports so that I can borrow eBooks. I love the app. They have a great selection of books, and if they’re not available right away, I can put books on hold just like physical ones at the library. It’s so nice to be able to read books without having to actually go the library to check them out or return them when I’m done reading. Technology for the win!

Completing my Professional Development Credits

As a Canadian Society of Exercise Physiology personal trainer, I have to get a certain number of professional development credits every two years. This means that I can maintain my certification and get some more education. I had to get mine done my March, and I’m very grateful to have them all done now! I attended my last webinar last night. I did 4 webinars all about nutrition. There’s so much information to know what it comes to nutrition, that I thought that would be a great topic to learn about.

Eating Disorder Presentation

I also attended a workshop on Saturday morning all about recognizing eating disorders in fitness settings. I learned a lot, but felt like there’s still so much more to know about eating disorders. It’s just tough to cover everything in just four hours. The workshop was lead by two psychologists and a trainer, so they had a lot of information and different perspectives. I’m very grateful that I was able to get my credits done on topics that I’m really interested in.
