My August goals are set 😁
I set aside a few books that I had planned on reading this month in an effort to clean out my net galley folder on my Kindle! I really need to catch up there lol 😅 So, 4 more books for #14Books14Weeks, As the Light Fades to review for a launch team, Evie Drake Starts Over from my actual TBR stack, and hoping to get through at least three if not more net galley books forvreview on my Kindle. Fingers crossed 😁

Hey All ! This is Meaw checking in for week 5 of #BFC2 this week I have hit all my goals. But this week I also added a challenge of sticking to a diet instead of running to the fast food or snacks or chocolates that I have been relying on when I‘ve felt very depressed. I had a doc appt this week and since moving back from CA I‘ve gained a lot more then I ever have in that amount of time. Cont in comments

Meaw_catlady I know we shouldn‘t care much about what the scale says but I also know that when I cut out the bad food and was doing yoga everyday and walking daily in CA. My chance of having A “bad” day, week or even month was lower. So I know I‘m doing good but I‘m gonna push myself to do better and focus on my physical health that goes hand in hand with my mental. K thanks for listening ! Love you all and I‘m here if anyone needs any encouragement! (edited) 4w

Signed up for round 3 of the #bookfitnesschallenge @wanderinglynn - goals have slightly changed!

😸 12 books in the 6 weeks (because I've done well this round)
😸 3 walks instead of 2!
😸 More fruit & veg in my diet remains the same.
😸 I've been very bad & neglected my daily injections - I've started doing them again & know I'm feeling better as I can see results on my glucometer - I'll track this out of 28!

Trying out #BFC round 2! It starts this Sunday.
Goals currently are:
-56k steps per week (8000 steps per day average)
-140 active minutes per week (20 min daily average)
-Under calorie count on Fitbit 5/7 days per week
-12 books (2 books per week - it is likely I may go over this goal if I get on a reading streak)

Steps will be hardest. My job and thus sitting time varies day by day, + I live in an apartment. Active minutes will also be tricky.

Cheshirecat913 Awesome goals! 2mo

julesG You could, if possible, stand up and walk on the spot while on the phone. I used to do that when I worked in an office. 2mo
bookandcat @julesG I unfortunately don't do office work. I am a therapist, so I'm stuck sitting in my chair during sessions and groups. I'm someone who DOES pace when I'm on the phone but I'm not on the phone much. I work in different locations so on group days I get lots of steps but individual client days mean I'm stuck in a 100 square foot office with nowhere to go and only 5 minutes between some sessions :-( 2mo

What are some of your reading goals for March? 😃

#ReadingGoals #MarchGoals #MonthlyGoals

MrsMcC I'm hoping to get out of my graphic novel SLUMP! 🙏 Every now and then I have a break from novels and I need to unwind a little especially if the previous reads have been intense; but the last few weeks of February I have had a rest with some graphic novels and been SUCKED IN with so many great consistent series! 🤦‍♀️ #sendhelp 😂 6mo
Freespirit I hope to read more🙏🏼I only completed 4 books in February 6mo
TheReadingMermaid My goal is actually to read less. I feel that I was putting a little bit too much pressure on me in reading and trying to get reviews out for authors and publishers. My goal for the next few months is to read no more than 10 to 12 books each month. My usual is 20 to 40 per month 😳 6mo

Sweetkokoro My goal is 150 books, 50 more than last years goal. Only thing I want to do different is have a higher count of books to graphic novels. I love graphic novels but I want to expand more and read more novels (and trilogy‘s and so forth) 7mo

Working on setting my reading goals for the year. This year I decided not to focus on a number goal but instead a "format" goal. I have so many unread books that I own I figured this was a great way to attempt to tackle this. Each month I will read
1 audio book
1 wrapped/surprise book from my TBR shelf
1 book received in a subscription box
1 ebook

Fingers crossed I can stick to this & it drastically reduces my TBR.

Hannah_Haymond Love this! Happy reading!! 8mo

I‘ve been thinking about my plan for my reading in 2019 and I decided to be very ambitious... this is what I‘ve come up with!

Reading is the most important thing for keeping my mental health in check, and my ambition of reading 365 books in 2018 is going okay, and having good impact on my brain. Keeping that up!

The other targets are steep, particularly translated books. I might not meet them but I want to challenge myself a lot. Bring it on!

Moray_Reads ⅓ non-fiction. Very impressive, I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for you in 2019 🤞 9mo

So my other 2018 goal is to read my own print and ebooks instead of going to the library or buying new books. When I was organizing my books the last few days I was shocked how many books I actually have on my TBR that I actually own.

Crinoline_Laphroaig Me too! Last Year I did #LitsyAtoZ challenge. This year I've decided on personal challenge. I'm calling it #readmyshelf2018 2y
Dolly Oooo! You have the Pete Souza book! Well done. ❤️ 2y
jlondon1963 #readmyshelf2018 sounds like a great goal 🥅 working on my library right now. 2y

So oddly enough my goal this year is to read less books and spend more time socializing. I was an awful hermit this year besides working. Going back to a job outside my business after seven years made me want to do nothing but read when I got home. So I am determined to spend more time with friends and family in 2018. Just not today 🤣 #readingallday

Andrew65 Well done, a great year of reading. 🎊🎉👍 2y
Purrfectpages Everything is about finding balance. It sounds like you‘ve set good goals! 2y
Notafraidofwords Awesome. I want to watch more films this year and be more present with my family. 2y

This was my first full year on goodreads I set a manageable goal for myself & surpast it. So next year I can bump it up even more especially since I added in 3 audiobooks for the first time this past two months. Thanks to viewing your litsy post I discovered how audiobooks can help me fit in more books.👍😁 #myyearinbooks 📚🎆

1) Reshape my life
2) Not sure yet - maybe Milk and Honey
3) Read only from TBR list and make a huge dent in that list.
4) No swaps, but I am doing the Read Harder, Popsugar, and Reading Women challenge for 2018
5) A blanket usually, sometimes hot tea.
6) Consider this an open tag for anyone who wants to do.
@Wbabdullah #2018Goals

Wbabdullah A lot of us like our blankets and tea!! Amazing!!! I‘m also planning on reading Milk and Honey, but later on in the year. 2y
[DELETED] 3803335244 I hope 2018 is a great year for you ❤️❤️ 2y
WarpedSweetness @ForeverNerdy So do I. @Wbabdullah I was just gifted an e-book copy of Milk and Honey, so I want to read it as soon as possible so it isn't just sitting. Lol I have a tendency to do that with my books. 2y
