@allureofbeauty This is Rudi you can share him with me.
He wakes you up in the morning wanting his food, he has to be under the covers at all times, he waits at the top of the stairs for you after work and he just about eats anything. We want to ease your pain 😍🥰❤️❤️❤️😺🐈🐱🐱

Megabooks @julesG Thank you so much. 😊 3mo
Cinfhen I agree, book had lots of potential but it was a little “unpolished “, especially towards the end. Maybe the author tried to do too much🤷🏼‍♀️ I‘m glad books are helping xx thinking of you and praying you have a complete recovery. 😘😘 3mo

I wanted to love this book but I just never got there. I think when you read so many books a character has to grab your attention to really make a lasting impression & unfortunately all the characters just bled into each other. Plus the story felt like a bad Oxygen Channel TV movie. An upstanding community couple is incarcerated after embezzling funds from a local charity they run. The story focuses on the aftermath from different family members.

Cinfhen It‘s heading to you next @Megabooks #SharingIsCaring 4mo
Megabooks @Cinfhen Thank you so much! 🤞🏻🤞🏻 I‘ll like it more. 🙂 4mo

Cinfhen I think you will @Megabooks given our current track record 😉😁 4mo
Megabooks @Cinfhen Lolololol!! 😘😘 4mo
Hooked_on_books You‘re welcome! I had the same response to it. I think this author has potential but needs to work some things through. 4mo
BarbaraBB Great review though 💕 4mo
LiteraryinLititz I agree! So much potential but just didn‘t do it for me. 4mo
Cinfhen Definitely potential @Hooked_on_books you could see the talent was there @LiteraryinLititz she just needed a bit of fine tuning Thanks @BarbaraBB 4mo

#BFC week 2 check in. Well, im doing great with my book goals it‘s the fitness part im really failing at☹️It‘s totally on me. I‘m just not motivated enough. I‘m aware which is important but i haven‘t been so good about implementing my goals. There‘s always next week. Hope the rest of my challenge buddies are staying on track and feeling good 😁

Meaw_catlady I am feeling the same way. I lack motivation because I am so busy it‘s stressing me out I just pass out the minute I get home. But sometime sleep is what you need for your health. Don‘t lose hope! You‘re doing great no matter what 🤗 8mo
BookwormAHN Books are a big part of the challenge. Don't lose hope you can do this 👏🏻 8mo
Cinfhen Thanks so much @Meaw_catlady @BookwormAHN your words of encouragement actually mean a lot!!!!!! 8mo

DivineDiana Congratulations on your book goals! You already look fit to me! 💗 8mo
TrishB Know how you feel ❤️ I‘m sure it will return. 8mo
RachelO Week 3 will be amazing! 8mo
wanderinglynn Great progress on your book goal! 🙌🏻 What can we do to help you get back on track with your fitness goal? Team #BFC is here for you. 8mo
Chrissyreadit Pick a goal and I will cheer you on!!! How can I help motivate? 8mo
Megabooks You can do it, Cindy!! I have faith!! 8mo
Cinfhen Thank you all soooo much!! Im working through some medical condition that leaves me fatigued and with terrible shortness of breathe with little or no exertion. It is related to low iron and low blood count so I‘m frustrated that simple exercises I used to do like sit-ups or lunges now have me panting and feeling sick after only a few minutes. @Chrissyreadit @wanderinglynn @Megabooks @DivineDiana @TrishB @RachelO 👇🏼 8mo
Cinfhen And because I get frustrated I tend to throw all my other fitness/ health goals out the door which then leads to me being angry with myself. You know how that bad cycle goes. I‘ve been walking but even the walks leave me winded and they don‘t really tick my own boxes of what I‘d like to accomplish. 😩 8mo
Megabooks @Cinfhen oh honey, I am so sorry! I had severe anemia related to my celiac disease four years ago and my red blood cells were so low, it was terrible to even walk my dogs. I had to have four iron infusions. It sucked! I hope you are able to return to normal activity soon!! Any progress is good progress!! I will pray for you to heal. 😘🙏🏻 8mo
TrishB @Cinfhen make sure you look after yourself ❤️ I‘ve suffered with anemia on and off most of my life and when it‘s bad it‘s bad and exhausting!! 8mo
Cinfhen Thank you both @Megabooks @TrishB I go twice a year for 12 rounds of iron infusions!!!! It sucks and they still can‘t figure out what‘s causing the loss. It‘s so exhausting and frustrating 😢 I appreciate your prayers and good cheer xx 8mo
RachelO Sending hugs- so frustrating, especially when they can‘t find the cause, (I spent a few years there, back along) but please don‘t be hard on yourself! Do what you can do, celebrate the wins, and take it easy 😘 8mo
Chrissyreadit @Cinfhen that is completely understandable! I get fatigue frequently too- but as I research wonder if I have recurring Epstein Barr virus. Anyway, chair yoga is working, although physical activities in days I work is too much. I‘m also working on mindfulness and pain management. Not sure if this is helpful- just sharing that it is not about just physical activity. ❤️❤️❤️maybe just identify different goals? 8mo
Cinfhen Are u using an online video for the chair yoga @Chrissyreadit that might be a good place for me to start!! I‘m sorry you have your own health issues to navigate. I find my eating and mental health is generally good it‘s really working on my stamina and strength that is weighing me down physically & mentally. 8mo
Cinfhen @RachelO thanks for your encouragement 😘😘😘It‘s always nice to know you have friends who care and support you!!! 8mo
Centique Oh man Cindy I‘m sorry to hear it‘s been so frustrating. You always spread so much good cheer on here, I hope we can all cheer you on too. Sounds like smaller/different types of goals might be better while the breathlessness is happening. 🤞All the best for whatever you want to try and I hope the condition improves. 💕💕💕 8mo
Chrissyreadit I miss my previous life where I was very active and fit but this challenge is actually helping me most with depression because it is making me work on what I can do and not ruminate on what I can‘t do. @4thhouseontheleft mentioned she might also have some chair yoga sources 🥰🥰 8mo
Cinfhen Thanks so much @Chrissyreadit #SharingIsCaring 😘😘😘 8mo
Cinfhen Thanks so much @Centique I try not to focus on the negative but sometimes you need to share 💜and Littens are really THE BEST and most supportive people I‘ve ever “met” 8mo
DivineDiana Sorry to hear about your medical issues. 😕I am confident that you will bounce back very soon! 👍🏻💪🏻❤️ 8mo
4thhouseontheleft @chrissyreadit @cinfhen I'm still waiting to hear back from my friend/yoga instructor, but I follow Yoga for Adriene on YT and the video in the link looks very similar to what my friend Amber teaches! Ignore the title - it's not just for seniors, despite the title. 🙄All of the poses in the video look gentle, with the possible exception of the warrior pose, so if that one is a struggle, that's ok! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Ts01MC2mIo 8mo
Cinfhen Thanks for sharing the link @4thhouseontheleft and for all the words of encouragement 😘😘😘 8mo
Cinfhen Thanks so much @DivineDiana It‘s hard to hold me back 😂😛 8mo
Megabooks @Cinfhen 12!! I hope someone can find a cause, so you don‘t have to do that anymore. Best of luck! 💙💙💙 8mo
Cinfhen Thanks so much @Megabooks 💕💕 8mo
