My morning tea reminds us that “you don‘t need love, you are the love” Agree? disagree? I do agree that we are love but...we also need love. Because if you don‘t know Love, how can you be love? #earlymorningdeepthoughts #yogitea #24b4Monday #MrBook1inaMillion @MrBook @Andrew65

CocoReads @Crazeedi I also read it years ago but my kids were little and I had some other issues and wasn‘t really in the right place to absorb it—but now I‘m ready for a reread and immersion. 2d

Godmotherx5 I signed up for #CampNaNoWriMo and felt overwhelmed just looking at the site. Any tips for building courage? 3d
CocoReads @Godmotherx5 it can be very overwhelming. I‘m not even in it this month to “win” I have too many other demands to really put my all into it. I‘m just using it to try to build the habit of writing every day, even if it‘s just 15 minutes. I will say writing buddies can be a good source of encouragement (both on and off site). I‘m not even sure what I want to do with my writing after 👇 3d
Godmotherx5 @CocoReads We are trying to sell our house so I would not be in it to win either. I just want to get back on track. I was looking up events. You tips & the events page have been great motivation. Thank you! 3d
CocoReads At times I think it might be fun to try to get published (but I have no idea how to do that) but at the same time I suspect, I don‘t really have it in me to do the work that publishing entails. But I do enjoy “talking” writing with others. I‘m cocoreads70 on nano, add me as a writing buddy and maybe we can talk more that way. Or my email is colleens421@gmail if you want to connect that way. 3d
CocoReads @Godmotherx5 good luck with the house selling! And the getting back on track. 👍😁 2d

Yeah yeah, it too early for Christmas books. But we‘re supposed to get a lovely rain/snow mix tonight, I have a cold and I‘m working tonight and missing Halloween. Having said that, I‘m actually DNF‘ing this book. 4 chapters in and I can‘t stand the heroine. I‘m pretty sure the whole story is her undergoing a transformation but clearly that‘s not what I‘m in the mood for. Also I‘ve been a bit MIA lately and I wanted to check in. 😁👍

Thank you to everyone for the happy birthdays! I had a good weekend but yesterday‘s actual birthday was pretty craptastic. I wound up working a 12-ish hour shift (because our closing tech had a medical moment—but I think she‘s going to be fine, just with a few extra days off). So by the time I got home I ate my pizza, popped a Motrin, took a shower and went to bed. But hey, I got these great finds over the weekend so it‘s a win for me!

LaurenReads I just saw!!!! I don‘t know whether I should wait for all the books or just dive right in!! I feel so torn 😂 1mo
CocoReads Me neither. I was gonna get it and start after work, but knowing it‘s a trilogy is making it hard. Additionally, I have all her others on my nook and I can‘t get it to come up there. Or any of her books. I can get it for kindle, which I prefer anyway, but it‘s supposed to be available everywhere and I like keeping my series together. #firstworldproblems 1mo

Had my second cataract surgery yesterday. It went well, that eye is still blurry but the other eye is pretty much all healed. Since I don‘t go back to work until Friday and I can‘t bend or lift anything until then, I‘m just going to chill and work on my book group book. It‘s really good so far.

#BFCr3 final check in. I can‘t believe it‘s over. I keep losing and gaining the same 6 pounds. But that‘s ok. I‘ve built some strength and stamina, I‘ve got a habit going, and I miss it if I miss more than a day or two. This is yesterday‘s sweaty selfie after my workout. Something I NEVER would have posted before. Oh this week I got 6/5 workouts in and read 7 books for a 36/40 total.

Week 5 wrap up—I can‘t believe it‘s almost over for #BFCr3 ! It was a hectic week but I managed to workout 3/5 times. I did read 7 books this week though bringing my total to 29/40. Next week will hopefully be better workout wise-I‘m on almost all early shifts and cardio today kicked my butt making me realize how easy it is to lose the habit and stamina I‘ve built. @wanderinglynn

julesG 👏👏👏 Yeah for cardio! I've slacked a bit there. What do you do for cardio? 2mo
CocoReads @julesG I subscribe to Beachbody so there‘s a lot of different programs. I‘m doing Morning Meltdown 100 right now and it was a lot of burpees, jacks, lunges, and stuff yesterday. Today will be an upper body workout with weights. This program has 10 different days before repeating again but each week gets a little harder. But overall I like Beachbody because I can do something different when I want. I get bored easily so this helps. 2mo
julesG Ah! Very interesting. And I've just noticed that I'm a slug. 😁 Fitness-wise. I can't do more than three burpees. 2mo
CocoReads I just started to be able to do them at all—and I‘m very slow at them. If I try to be quick I either hurt myself or throw up. So mine are more at sloth like speeds. 🤣🤣🤣 2mo
britt_brooke @CocoReads Those Beach Body workouts are intense! Great work this week! 💪🏻 2mo
CocoReads @britt_brooke they are but for the most part I like them, which is why I‘m still doing them. Plus, I paid for the year and so I won‘t quit. At least not until my year is up. Probably not even then-I‘ve actually found something that works fairly well for me. I don‘t have to leave the house and I can work out at a time that‘s conducive to my life that particular day. 2mo
britt_brooke @CocoReads That‘s why those programs are great; you can do them at home. Several years ago, my husband and I did P90X. It was hard, but so good! 2mo
CocoReads I‘ve only done 21 day fix and now I‘m on the new one Morning Meltdown 100. So good. I‘m thinking about 80 day obsession next but committing to an hour workout everyday is a bit daunting. 2mo

#bfcr3 (19/30) not much fitness going on here as I had my left eye cataract surgery yesterday. It went pretty well, things are still blurry and it feels like I‘ve got an eyelash in it but I think when it‘s fully healed and the other eye is done and healed that it‘s going to be a life changer. Anyway-this book is a reread but I still enjoyed it. @wanderinglynn

CocoReads @julesG no, I‘ve never been able to audio. I can do music but audio is too much like being read to and I‘ve never been able to stand that since I learned how to read. Mostly I‘m just reading with one eye closed. I did download an audio book from the library but I‘m not having much success. 2mo
CaroPi Recover soon. Try to listen non fiction. It works for me. I am unable to listen fiction but I truly enjoy non fiction in audio it really increase my reading 😁. It takes a couple to find the correct one. Eyes operation are the worst. I had retina detachment in both of my eyes 15 years ago... Is hell but you will recover! (edited) 2mo

CocoReads @crazeedi I have to be able to focus so if I stay busy I wind up not knowing what‘s going on in the book. If I do nothing I either fall asleep or get irritated with the pace. There‘s just no pleasing me when it comes to audio! 🤣 oddly enough, I can do podcasts. Mostly. 2mo

My first Beverly Jenkins book but it totally won‘t be my last. I enjoyed her attention to the history, both of New Orleans as well as the time period of reconstruction. I admit, I don‘t know a whole lot about it from either side but this felt very real to me. I also really liked that it was Valinda who didn‘t know what Love was and didn‘t want to marry, and although Drake was in love from the start, he gave her time. 👇

Finally Z and Lilly get their HEA. Yeah, this is book 14 in a series, and the 4th in this particular story arc but I‘ve discovered LOKI is my favorite MC series. But...they def need to be read in order. I still love the Hangmen and the Last Riders but this series has my heart. @CoverToCoverGirl @theresidentromantic

theresidentromantic I have the first one as a sample! My Favorite is definitely the Night Horde MC and Dartmoor, but I'm looking forward to the new Flame/Maddie. It's 3rd place ♥️ I have the first of this book in my samples? I'll check!! Glad you love them!! 3mo
theresidentromantic I can't edit my comment, so ignore that I said the sample thing twice lol 3mo
CocoReads I can‘t wait for the new Flame and Maddie! These aren‘t as gritty as the Hangmen but they‘re just so well done I feel like I‘m among friends when I‘m reading them. 3mo

#bfcr3 Week 1 off to a decent start. I exercised (outside of work) 4 days and read 4 books. Stayed pretty positive (by staying off the scale) and occasionally made some good food choices. Heck I even ate a salad at lunch today and only half my calzone. 🤣🤣🤣 @wanderinglynn

LibrarianJen Salad for the win!!!! 🙌🏼 great job this week. 💖 3mo
imabusybee 🙌🏼 You're doing great!! 3mo
julesG ???? I think we can even allow this one "only", can't we, @wanderinglynn? 3mo
CocoReads @LibrarianJen I actually love salad but I don‘t digest it very well so I‘m always trying to decide if it‘s worth it. Yesterday it was. 3mo
Reecaspieces Food is always my downfall. Good job! 3mo
CocoReads @Reecaspieces mine too, I have a whole mess of food issues, between not liking stuff or not being able to digest stuff to the fact that I actually don‘t like anything about the eating process other than the eating, that is. I just don‘t like to shop, plan, prep, or cook. 🤣🤣🤣 3mo
Reecaspieces @CocoReads 😂 me either!! Such a pain. Processed food is the way to go. 😂😂😂 3mo
wanderinglynn Way to go! 🙌🏻 A great week! 3mo

I know it‘s not #socksunday but my feet are cold. Are these not perfection?

Crazeedi I remember when it first came on the airwaves! Showing my age!🙄😍 3mo
CocoReads @Crazeedi same. I had to stay the night with a friend because we didn‘t have cable and she did so we were able to see it first! 3mo
Crazeedi @CocoReads we didn't have cable, but visited friends to watch!! 3mo
CocoReads Sounds like we had roughly the same childhood! 🤣🤣🤣 3mo

#bookhaul post 4/4. Ok, these were my non book purchases but I can‘t make a trip without a good pair of Blue Q socks. The magnets are perfection and the soap is fantastic. I mean, I bought it for the label but it smells great as well!

AkashaVampie 💜💜💜 the socks!! 3mo
sprainedbrain Love those!! 3mo

#bookhaul post 3/4 back in my 80s high school years we devoured anything Judith Krantz and Danielle Steel. Plus Flowers in the Attic. I‘ve moved on from Ms. Steel and VC Andrews but I couldn‘t resist the nostalgia of Krantz.

Post 2/4. Some mystery, some historical fiction, plus Savages—violence, drugs... #lowryssturgis

Freespirit Colleen M wrote a lot of great books. I haven't read these ones 3mo
CocoReads @Freespirit I‘ve only read The Thorn Birds (and that was so long ago I don‘t really remember much) but I thought these looked good 3mo
Freespirit I know she researched her books very thoroughly...enjoy😍 3mo

I may have taken today as a rest day on working out but jeez, look at what I did at work today! Also I finished a book this morning (I‘d Rather Not by Lani Lynn Vale). #bfcr3 @wanderinglynn #TeamLetsDoThis @julesG @britt_brooke @imabusybee @LibrarianJen @Reecaspieces @jb72 @Eeyore031370 @Moony

britt_brooke Way to rock the step count! 👣🙌🏻 3mo
wanderinglynn 😂😂😂 Your rest day is better than my regular days! Way to go! 🙌🏻 (edited) 3mo
CocoReads @wanderinglynn it‘s the job—we‘re on our feet pretty much most of the 8 hours. Occasionally there‘s a light day and today wasn‘t too busy med wise but I put the iv order away, and our infusion clinic is actually across the street and I was over there a couple of times as well today. So I stayed busy. 3mo

CocoReads @britt_brooke thanks. I used to average 8k on a work day—now it‘s almost always at least 10k. 3mo
