Finished my last #bookfitnesschallenge goal for the week. This week was not kind in helping me find my motivation to read or move my body. I dug deep. I felt mentally and physically drained. Thankful I could finish. Now to celebrate with a book and a blueberry lemon pop. #bfc #bfcr3 #TeamFitLit
Put the books down to rock with the legend tonight 🤘🖤
Dobby and I are ready to take on week 2 of the #bookfitnesschallenge We will start with our walk tomorrow and then finish up this amazing book. I am anxious to see how it will end, but at the same time I don‘t want it to! Gosh this is such a remarkable read! #bfcr3 #bfc #TeamFitLit #dobby #dogsoflitsy #pitbullsoflitsy
Week 1 check in for the #bookfitnesschallenge
It was a good kick off week, thanks in part to the kids back at school. After avoiding gluten all week, I caved a bit today and let my cravings get the better of me. I indulged in a non gluten-free baked good. Needless to say it made me super ill. Lesson learned...your body just can‘t tolerate some stuff...reach for the dark chocolate and wine instead! #TeamFitLit #bfcr3 #bfc
I tried, I really did. I attempted to check my own personal distaste for the “self help” genre and go all in with an open mind, but it didn‘t work. I appreciate the sentiments to autoimmune disease, but it just fell flat. One of my mini goals for #bfc was to have one book be a “self help” book, but alas this is not it. #bfcr3 #TeamFitLit
Book 1/6 completed for #bfcr3 After doing my morning walk of 3 1/2 miles, in the disgusting humidity that is the south right now, I cooled off and finished this book. I totally see why Jeff Vandermeer is quoted on the back of the book, as its got some serious Annihilation vibes. There are connections to climate change as well. Bonus points for strong female protagonists and LGBTQ representation. A solid 3 1/2 ⭐️. #bfc #TeamFitLit
Alright Monday morning I got you! Walked the 2 youngest kids to school, then looped back around and picked up my boy and continued on! I need to remember this feeling of accomplishment. #bfc #teamfitlit #pitbullsoflitsy #dogsoflitsy #dobby #applewatch
#bfc #TeamFitLit Along with these goals I have also set out to accomplish a few other mini goals. I. Take my meds, vitamins, and supplements daily 2. Keep off gluten, eat less meat, and limit sugar intake 3. Out of my 6 book goal, include a “self help” and “professional” book (I‘ve recently finished grad school and I just landed my first job) 4. Remind myself that caring for “myself” is as important as caring for my 4 kids, partner and dog.
My mom has got all 4 kids for a few hours! So I‘m taking myself on a date today....alone. First up: a little reading and cappuccino before it gets too hot outside. Next: off to the art museum to see an exhibit. Yay!!
Scored this gorgeous book at the library today ❤️🏳️🌈
I need to give a shout out to the folks participating in the #bookfitnesschallenge While I missed sign ups due to conflict during deadline, and I‘ll admit my own personal hang ups with self care and exercise, I was so inspired and motivated by ya‘ll‘s accomplishments. This a.m. I braved the gym and took a class. Thank you for inspiring me! Bravo to your dedication and hard work. It has not gone unnoticed! My sore body will now read this book..
Today was a lot. My littlest munchkin had surgery. I don‘t think I quite anticipated how worn out I would feel. The necessity to stay calm and strong knowing their fear, and the wait for wake up from anesthesia has left me spent. But alas, surgery was a success, we are now home, and like magic my book mail arrived. Now for couch cuddles, my little nestled in the crook of my arm, and a good book. Thanks for listening fellow Littens 💚
Doing a little audio knitting this afternoon. I am really enjoying switching back and forth between audiobook and physical copy for the Outlander series. Especially the ability to speed up when bits seem to drag on tad. I do love the immersive effect of the narrators voice. #knittersoflitsy #audioknitting
I love Cantero‘s style, so I‘m of course stoked to start this one!
An interesting little story I found at the library recently. A mix of dystopian themes and magical realism, sprinkled with tales that have been passed down from generations before. A solid 3 1/2 ⭐️⭐️⭐️‘s.
1000 pages, 153 to go, in this epic story. I bumped up the #losersclub read to prepare for the second installment of the movie hitting theaters. I‘ve alternated between audio book and physical copy and it is nothing short of remarkable. Love this story. #constantreader
About to begin the 4th story in this book. I have to say this collection really showcases King as a story teller. Each section is phenomenal. A true testament to the master of his craft. #losersclub #constantreader
Put the books down to rock last night 🤘KISS!!!
Just finished reading this for #bbbbc and I am blown away. What a book! It is more than a brilliant science fiction novel, but also a beautiful love story. It makes you think deeply about the choices you‘ve made. All you have done up until the point you are in your life now. Of how one decision can alter so much And if we should allow ourselves to get caught up in the what if‘s. Phenomenal story ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I was in a major reading rut these past few weeks. New semester/last semester started, internship began, kids got the winter colds. This book has totally taken me out of the rut and I can‘t put it down! #lifeafterlife #buddyread #LAL2019
Not too shabby for a mom of 4 in grad school. This year I intend to focus on making a dent in my endless tbr owned books, through way too many challenges that I‘ve signed up for. 🖤
