#bfcr4 I spent the weekend without service and got back home last night so here is my late check in for last week. I meditated everyday, I worked out 2x, I was better with my sugar intake, and I didn‘t finish any books but I do have a few close to finishing. @wanderinglynn @suzie.reads @Emilymdxn @jessinikkip @LauraJ

#bfcr4 @Emilymdxn @jessinikkip @LauraJ @suzie.reads @wanderinglynn weekly check in: I meditated 6/7 days, I worked out 2x. I finished A Discovery of Witches and have a few books started. Where I had some issues was with my sugar intake, the week was rough and definitely ate more sweets than I would ideally want. I also know I have to define this goal better, not sure what that looks like yet. Hope you all enjoy your weekend!

Emilymdxn I think you‘re doing great! I like to keep my goals slightly woolly lol, I get so busy and when I‘m sick or anxious I like to keep it broad so I can count making small efforts and bearing things in mind when it‘s all I can manage 1mo
suzie.reads You're doing great! Keep doing what you're doing and don't worry about it 😊 1mo
LauraJ You‘re off to a great start! Sugar is a tough one - especially around Halloween. It takes awhile to condition our brains not to crave sugar and we have a finite amount of willpower. Hopefully each week will get a little easier. 1mo
wanderinglynn Great week! 🙌🏻 Sometimes it takes some tweaking before a goal works for you. And sometimes we have a week. That‘s why BFC goals are adaptable. 😉 1mo
jessinikkip Excellent job this week! One reason I love BFC is you can keep updating those goals to find what works. It might be hard to limit sugar during this candy season, but you can do it! 1mo

So I‘m really proud of myself for finishing this and finally being able to complete some of the #scaryscavengerhunt this book checks off a few prompts - with a witch in it, that‘s over 200 pages,is part of a series, and maybe (can be debated) about a vampire that‘s 3-4/13 #scarathlon #teamstoker @TheReadingMermaid that‘s 3pts or is it more? Also really enjoyed this book

TheReadingMermaid You are correct sweetie it's 3 points 🧟‍♀️ 1mo

Morning reading before getting ready for work, just finished the intro. Have heard mixed things about this one, it has been in my tbr for a long time. I have to say, I enjoy the comparisons between woman and wolf. It‘s refreshing and I dig it.

So I have been reading a lot, but I have also been so busy with work, school, and wedding planning that I have not posted anything on Litsy in forever. This was one of my favorite summer reads and I particularly enjoyed this quote; “To be human is to confuse a satisfying story with a meaningful one, and to mistake life for something huge with two legs.” #summerreads #quotes
