I really wanted to have a week where I meditated all 7 days which hasn‘t happened yet this round. (Maybe week 6 is my week). But week 5 was good. Got a ton of housework done which was great for my mental health! Struggling with eating choices right now, cause I‘m sick which limits my options. So I‘m going to ponder how to make the best of that while taking it easy next week. @wanderinglynn @Hestapleton @StayCurious @Hufflepuffle

StayCurious If you're sick, don't push yourself! Listen to your body. You'll bounce back faster that way:) 2d
wanderinglynn Way to go! 🙌🏻 2d
Hufflepuffle I agree with @StayCurious , when you are sick it‘s best to listen to what your body wants. Still a good week though! 2d
TheAromaofBooks Accomplishing housework also makes me feel so much better about my life! Even just getting the dishes washed can be a big help. Great work! 2d

Thanks for the tag @Jee_HookedOnBookz ! Didn‘t manage to get to this on Wednesday, but I really like these prompts.

Neil Gaiman- Illustration is a big part of so much of your work. When you write, do you start with an idea for a story or an image of a character?

⬇️⬇️⬇️

IndoorDame Lisa See: I really love experiencing the hidden pockets of history I find in your books. Do you happen upon them and get inspired, or do you deliberately do research until you find a new topic that interests you?

I think I own around 500 physical books. I‘ve been really working on downsizing since moving into my current place. I used to own at least 3 times as many.
5d
Jee_HookedOnBookz Love love the authors you picked and the questions you asked. Love Gaiman's Graveyard Book and Coraline😊 5d
Eggs Those are wonderful questions for your authors💕👏🏻 5d
TheLibrarian Great author pick and great question! 5d

After setting my new goals I had a good week! I didn‘t miss any meds doses, and only missed 2 mediations. I didn‘t get much reading done this week, but I realized that between scarathlon and 24b4monday I‘ve actually read 9 books since #BFCr4 started, so I‘m just going to try to read a little every day and be relaxed about it. Next week my goal is to miss NO mediations.

I missed my check in this week and realized I‘m behind on every goal I‘ve set except reading. I‘ve been depressed and overwhelmed lately and it‘s been making me shut down and accomplish nothing. Since I can‘t seem to find my way through this, I‘ve decided to pare back my goals to the basics. The thing I accomplished in earlier rounds that is MOST important to me was getting into a daily meditation practice, so my new goals are ⬇️

IndoorDame 1. Daily meditation
2. No missed medication doses
3. Read 6 books
2w
Hestapleton Oh hi, I‘ve been the SAME WAY. I‘m sorry you aren‘t feeling great, but glad you parsed down to your goals to focus on the basics! 2w
IndoorDame @Hestapleton thanks! It always feels a bit like your giving up, but I feel so much better at the same time cause I‘m actually going to get more done this way! I‘m sorry you‘ve been the same way! I‘m here for you whatever you need, and if I can support you in some way let me know. 2w

wanderinglynn Awesome job adapting your goals. 🙌🏻 The important thing is you‘re not giving up. 💜 One step, one day at a time. Maybe also focus on some self-care—when I‘m feeling overwhelmed, I do gratitude journaling where I jot down 1-3 things each day that I‘m thankful for or that went well or just made me smile. That always seems to help me. 2w
Chrissyreadit Excellent! I‘ve had to step back several times but I‘m learning that actually helps me the most!!! Great plan! 2w
marleed Good for you! I kept trying to best my goals and ultimately that worked against me. This round I created a ‘no more than‘ goal and work to give myself a goalless day 7. Oddly, that has really worked for me this time. 2w
IndoorDame @wanderinglynn I‘ll totally try that. Thanks! 2w
IndoorDame @marleed what a cool strategy! I‘m so happy you found something that‘s working for you! 2w
IndoorDame @Chrissyreadit thanks! I‘m feeling positive about this right now but it‘s still super reassuring to hear I‘m not the only one ☺️ 2w
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I hope you feel better soon ❤️❤️ 2w
Hufflepuffle Well done for not giving up!! It‘s all about what works for you and I hope you start feeling a little better soon. I also missed my check in and am trying to figure out what to do so I can keep going, so you are definitely not alone! 💜 2w
IndoorDame @Hufflepuffle thank you 💜 I wouldn't succeed without you gals here with me! 2w
StayCurious I‘ve paired down my goals before and it totally helped make me feel better. I don‘t think it‘s giving up, I think it‘s being adaptable and knowing yourself and what you can handle. Great job! 2w
ljuliel Sometimes when you‘re really down, having a lot of expectations of yourself makes life even harder. Nothing wrong with changing goals to adapt. Maybe once things are on the upswing again, you‘ll feel ready to tackle more. 2w
mcipher Sorry you‘ve been feeling crappy - I totally know how that is. Awesome job shifting your goals to fit your situation!! Self care is so important. 💜 2w

The third Pluto‘s Snitch Mystery was a fun read, but it was so similar to the first two that I didn‘t find it very satisfying. I wish we‘d met a dynamic new character, or Rassia ourReginald had discovered a new psychic ability, or something to shake things up.

Loved seeing the difference between this and the movie! It‘s one of my favorite movies and I only found out it was adapted from the book a few months ago. And both stories really seem to sing! This book wouldn‘t have made a good film as is and vice versa. My favorite thing about the book version is that it‘s a bit darker. #24B4Monday #scarathlon #teamstoker @TheReadingMermaid

1. Not really, I‘m just going to dive in and see how far along I get.
2. I do start with a TBR cause I think it‘s fun to make them, but I‘m a total mood reader so I always change it right away.
3. My current snacks of choice are popcorn, carrots, hummus, and tea so I‘ll probably be eating that unless one of the books strikes a super specific craving
4. Neither
5. Just have fun with it!
6. Horror, ya, fiction
7. All 3

I expected this to be nothing more than a fun pick me up but it actually really spoke to me. I found the characters surprising and thought they had a lot to say. I wasn‘t into the romance in this story, but the friendships and familial relationships that developed were so deep and colorful that it almost didn‘t matter.

In no way connected to #teamstoker but worth a couple points anyway @TheReadingMermaid

I‘m not a big makeup person, which is probably why I‘ve never been braver enough to wear true #black lipstick, even on Halloween. I always end up cheating and going for something with just a hint of red in there.
