#BFCr4 final check-in. This round was hard for me. My mental health wasn‘t in a good place and my habits suffered hugely because of it. But @Hestapleton @StayCurious @Hufflepuffle were really there for me, so thank you ladies! I would never have made it this far alone, and while I don‘t have any positive stats to boast of this week, I still feel good about making positive changes going forward.

wanderinglynn Way to go! 🙌🏻 A great quote to sum up BFC! 💜 now
Crazeedi You are right on the money with your attitude, you go !!❤❤ now
StayCurious Love your attitude:) now

Final #BFC #BFCr4 Check-in! Can't believe we're done already! When's the next round?? 😁 I ran 4/4 times this week 🏃‍♀️💪 And finished my 9/9 books with the tagged #audiobook 📚🎧 It's been a good week and a good round! Thanks @wanderinglynn and my #RunningonReading team @BarbaraJean @Catlover23 @hermyknee ❤️🎉 #BookFitnessChallenge

wanderinglynn Way to go! 🙌🏻 If we do a round 5, it‘ll probably be after the new year. I figure everyone will be too busy during the holidays. But if people want to do a round through the holidays, I‘m game. now
Caterina @wanderinglynn Thanks! 😊 Whatever works best for you works for me! I would do a round during the holidays if there was one (especially since I'm signed up for a 10K on December 21), or wait until the new year if that's when you do the next round! 👍 So appreciate all the work you do to make BFC so great ❤️❤️❤️ now

#BFCR4 Final Check In. This round I mostly did well. I met my reading goals and baked several healthy recipes. I started a weight loss program. I worked on myself. But this last week really fell through the cracks. We got a bunch of snow (the above picture is a romantic view of snow - in reality, Ottawa is currently a slushy grimy mess), and I got sick so I had to skip out on my fitness classes. Sadly, I felt that I ended on a really sour note.

IndoorDame Oh no, I‘m sorry you had such a bad week! Don‘t let it sour your view of this round because you did such great things!!! 💜💜💜 33m

This was a very good last week of #bfcr4

We went on a lot of adventures, I ate a lot of vegetables, and drank a ton of water. Throughout these last 6 weeks I also got a lot more comfortable setting boundaries. Looking forward to carrying these good habits into the holiday season.

Thank you @wanderinglynn and my excellent teammates @erinreads @MatchlessMarie @BookNerd9906 @AsYouWish

This round kicked my a**. My mental health took a nose dive and it made it hard to do anything more than the bare minimum. I sort of dragged myself across the finish line here and I certainly don‘t feel healthier than I was when I started, but I know i gave it all the energy I had. Shoutout to my girls who kept me sane and gave me so much encouragement. @StayCurious @Hufflepuffle @IndoorDame Cat tax instead of lame stats. #bfcr4

StayCurious So sorry you had such a rough round. I think you did great by sticking with it - even though you didn't get the results you were hoping. I just want to let you know that even if you aren't able to do the next round, I'm always up for WhatsApp chats to keep each other sane. 1h
wanderinglynn 💜 I‘m sorry to hear you had a rough round. I agree with @StayCurious that you did great because you didn‘t quit. 💜 56m
IndoorDame Great job! for making it through to the finish line, not an easy feat when you‘re feeling low. I‘ll echo that I‘m always up for WhatsApp chats, our group is a great support system 💜 37m

Enjoyed a long #audiorun today down to Aquatic Park, around the loop there, and back! Such a gorgeous day, 59°F when I left my apartment, sunny, but also a little foggy. 💕🏃‍♀️💪 #BFC #BFCr4 #RunningonReading

Single lady date - Peruvian steak fries, PB&J stout, and this fun book. I‘m trying to be okay with being alone and this was a good couple hours...

36,164 steps
Yoga 7/7 days
Run 6/7 days
I read some books but I didn‘t keep good track... 😆

Andrea4 Learning how to be alone can be quite difficult. But it is something you can learn. Bit by bit, it gets easier. When you feel the loneliness setting in, I suggest reaching out to friends and making plans or doing something active around (but not necessarily interacting with) other people. now
Booklovergirl What ARE those kinda French fries?? In the south we just call them “fried taters“? What do u call them wherever u live at? now
mcipher @andrea4 Yeah - doing lots of staying busy. I‘ve been married for 16 years so it‘s weird living alone! Good advice on the being around but not having to interact with - I‘m finding that helps sometimes and sometimes makes it lonelier. now
mcipher @Booklovergirl They‘re just regular fries but with steak and onions and tomatoes on top. And some amazing green mystery sauce now

I know this one has mixed reviews. I actually thought it was really good had just enough creepiness and mystery. That ending had me shook.
10/20 starting to get back to normal I got my steps in 3/7 days and yoga 5/7 so not too bad. #BFC #bookfitnesschallenge #BFCr4 @wanderinglynn
