My favorite app is Calm! I use it for my daily meditation practice, but there‘s also other wellness aspects, like a daily stretch routine, music and soundscapes, and sleep stories (quite a few read by celebrities) to help you sleep. The meditations and sleep stories are what I use most. My favorite sleep story is by Harry Styles! 😂

Tongues of Sepents the 6th book in the Temeraire series tells of Laurence &Temeraire's exile in Australia.
Crucible of Gold the 7th book in the series tells of their adventures through the Incan Empire.
I throughly enjoyed both 🐉

Weekly Check-in for June 13-21 for those who asked for it! A day or two late because I was in Tokyo over the holiday weekend.

I am sticking to my Future workouts, plus I got a ton of walking in this weekend exploring Tokyo.

How are you doing?

#BFC2022

marleed I‘m so glad you get to be a tourist since Covid prevented this early on! 7d
wanderinglynn @marleed thanks! 😀 7d
mcipher I‘m feeling better but I haven‘t been doing my stuff… time to change that and finish June strong… PT and a walk on the agenda tomorrow!! (And I saw your Japan photos on IG, it looked like so much fun!!) 7d

wanderinglynn @mcipher glad you‘re feeling better. 👍🏻 It was nice to get away for the weekend. Tokyo was interesting to see but I wouldn‘t go a second time. For a better Japanese experience, I recommend Kyoto. 7d
PageShifter I have done workouts now more frequently and eaten healthier. I am also otherwise found balance in my mind with some things that has been bothering me. And that has made reading pleasurable as well. I wish everything good to everyone 💞 7d
Bookwormjillk Thanks @wanderinglynn I enjoyed your trip photos. I‘m still recovering from covid but am starting to think about going back to the gym. In the meantime it was possibly the most beautiful weekend in the DC area ever and I spent a ton of time outside. 7d
wanderinglynn @PageShifter 🙌🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 7d
wanderinglynn @Bookwormjillk glad you‘re feeling well enough to think about the gym. Take it slow & listen to your body. Glad you had a good weekend! 7d
bthegood Lots of workouts on vacation, walks and riding bike, very little reading🙂 7d

#bfc2022 check in @wanderinglynn my number 1 support is still my #bfc group with @Mitch @MicrobeMom @Blaire @ElizaMarie @Crazeedi so does that make Litsy my fitness app? I also still LOVE the Balance app and recently began using Fitbit- switching from whoop. I love all the resources shared on Lynn‘s post too. Oh and audiobooks when walking.

Crazeedi It sure does!! A great 'fitness app' to my mind!!😘 1w
Mitch Agreed - love our group is a trending app! 1w
MicrobeMom Yay! Totally agree you are all the best support system and Litsy is one my fitness apps! ♥️♥️ 1w

#bfc2022 my fave app is Down Dog- really great yoga practice, very guided if you need it, ability to choose levels and type and a TON of access in the free version!

wanderinglynn 👍🏻 I‘ll have to check that one out. 1w
Soubhiville I use Down Dog too! I love that I can set the time, focus, and level based on mood and how my body is feeling, as well as the variety of styles of yoga available here. 1w

#BFC June mid-month question.
Top left: Walk To Mordor: a fun way to record walks (I use MapMyFitness for tracking)
Bottom left: Yoga Studio: free & fee. I use the free.
Top right: COVID Coach is a mediation & stress management app that the Department of Veterans Affairs released after everything closed for COVID. I like it.
Bottom right: panel from tagged book showing why I don‘t wear jumpsuits.

Suet624 The yoga one might be something I‘m interested in. 1w
KathyWheeler @Suet624 I really like it. 1w
wanderinglynn 😆😆😆 the jumpsuit comic! 😂 Great app recommendations. 👍🏻 1w
KathyWheeler @wanderinglynn 😄. I‘ve seen so many jumpsuits that I like, but I never get them and that‘s why. 1w

#BFC2022 Mid-month question-health apps? Yes, I use a bunch! My favorites are My Fitness Pal and apple watch+fitness tracking app. I could not have lost the 60 pounds that I have in the last 16 months without them! My fitness pal is free and helps me track my food and exercise. For me, it has all been about calories in/calories out. I‘m julsmarshall there to if you want to friend me! @wanderinglynn

#BFC2022 - time for the June Mid-Month Q!

Remember we broadly define fitness as physical, mental, nutritional, or spiritual.

Mine is Future, which connects to a real life personal trainer. I‘ve used it for 2 weeks & love it! I met my trainer via FaceTime & we talked about my goals. Then he set up a program for me. Bonus, he sees if I complete the workout & I can give him feedback on it. It‘s the accountability I need.

Chelseabillups30 What is the cost for this?!? It sounds like such a dream!! I wonder if I could find an adaptive PT on it?!? 1w
PageShifter I don't use apps but I think it's important to find the best time of day to have your workout. For example for me it's almost impossible to find some energy to do them after 8PM. 1w
wanderinglynn @Chelseabillups30 https://www.future.co - according to the FAQ, they work with injuries and special needs as long as you‘ve been cleared by your doctor to work out. It‘s $149 monthly. I have 2 1-month free passes. I‘m happy to share one with you. 1w
wanderinglynn @PageShifter great tip! 👍🏻 1w
bthegood I agree with @PageShifter finding the right time for workouts is important in order for me to be consistent and realistic - I work out in the morning usually (unless meeting friends for a walk)- if I am working out by myself I need to do it at a time when I am motivated/energetic - first thing means nothing else can get in the way! Thanks for helping me stay motivated @wanderinglynn - 1w
Bookwormjillk The only thing I use is Fitbit. I like data. 1w
Jerdencon I use my iwatch to track steps and exercise bike workout - and good ole Weight watchers app to track food and scan everything in the grocery store! 1w
julesG To be honest, I've stopped tracking anything. It was freeing no longer having to worry about how I could get another 2k steps into my day, for example. I still do Yoga with Adriene. I try to keep an eye on my water intake; my ingenious system: I have a small glass of water every time I'm in the kitchen. I go to PT twice a week and they set me small but tough tasks to do each day. I sometimes use the Insight Timer App for meditation. 1w
wanderinglynn @julesG 👍🏻 I‘ll have to checkout the insight timer app. (edited) 1w
Allylu I haven‘t been given the go-ahead to start exercising yet, but I keep accountable on my food intake with my Ideal Protein Protocol log book. At the moment, I meet with my coach every week, but soon it will be every-other-week, then once-a-month, so I want to establish my own means of accountability. I like the MyFitnessPal app, but I don‘t count calories and that confuses it sometimes. This group helps me with accountability!! Thank you! 💕 1w
julieclair I wish I had an answer to this question! I have been struggling mightily with lack of motivation. I like @PageShifter , 1w
BarkingMadRun My goal was 10 book and 545 miles on the peloton. I‘m at 6 or 7 books and I have 180 miles to go. I‘m ahead!! 1w
julieclair Hit send too soon! I like @PageShifter ‘s tip about time of day, and @bthegood ‘s idea about mornings. I have just written “Walk” on my calendar for 3 days next week. Thanks for the help, ladies! 1w
katy4peas I‘m taking barre for my workout now and it is very accommodating to my feet problems. It has an app for scheduling before I go to my classes and the app keeps track of how many classes I go to. I pay for the 8 classes a month membership and am really enjoying it! I‘ve been going to the morning classes as they wake me up and give me a peaceful feeling for the day, but I liked the 5:30 classes right after work to relieve the stress of the day too 1w
katy4peas My therapist and I have talked about how we as a society don‘t really know how to check in with our full bodies emotionally. We are never really taught. I‘ve been working on my calming space and emotion tunnels and checking in with my self. Barre helps me move my emotions through my body in an unconscious way as I am stretching and working my muscles. I missed my classes this week for the dr and am interview and I am much more tense than usual. 1w
katy4peas The physical movement is really helpful for moving emotions through the body and helping to release feelings. 1w
PageShifter @julieclair Your comment made me happy, I love mornings and walking is awesome at that time: air is fresh and the world is quiet. I hope you'll find the best time for you. 1w
AbigailJaneBlog Personally, I have 2 types of self care days. The first is the typical idea of self care - I don't do ANY work and just do what my body wants: resting, reading, eating what I want, or walking, taking myself out for coffee, whatever. The other is a "deal with your shiz" day - I cancel any plans/work and get through my to-do list: tidying, admin, errands etc. The first is relaxing, the second deals with things causing me anxiety 1w
IndoorDame My favorite new workout apps are STRETCHIT (which I‘m still on a free trial of & may not keep cause it is expensive. It has a ton of easy to follow classes designed to reach a great variety of flexibility goals. And Feelmo which is a Breathwork app. I‘m finding that while Headspace (which I use daily) is great for centering & grounding me, most of Feelmo‘s routines are actually somewhat physically changing, (in a good way) & perk me up mentally 1w
IndoorDame And my favorite new health apps are FoodToGood, PainScale and Migraine Tracker. All of which have the best analysis of data available I‘ve found so for. Especially FoodToGood (which tracks any ingredients enter that you‘re eating against any symptoms you enter that you‘re experiencing) 1w
BookwormAHN My favorite fitness app is the Conqueror's Challenge. It's an interactive marathon with different themed challenges. Currently I'm doing the LOTR one. 1w
julieclair @PageShifter Thank you for your positive encouragement! 1w
BookishBelle I only use one fitness app. It‘s called interval timer. It lets you set different workout intervals. Like 1 minute high intensity, 15 seconds low intensity. It has options for a warm up and cool down interval. I use it when I strength train so I don‘t have to time everything. 1w
Moll Not really apps but I love Blogilates and Yoga W/ Adriene😊 Action For Happiness is my fave for mental wellbeing🙌 1w
Andrew65 43,297 steps so far, need to pick up the pace for the end of the month, so far read 15 books which I am happy with. 1w
Bookgoil I haven‘t been using any app with any frequency besides Fitbit really and even that I don‘t feel like I‘m engaging with for fitness reasons. I‘m more just following my PT exercises right now and walking my dogs and trying to eat to contentment levels. 1w
KathyWheeler I use MyFitnessPal, MapMyFitness, and Yoga Studio pretty much daily. I like Conqueror as well, but am not currently participating in any of their challenges. 1w
Lynnsoprano I basically stick with the data and motivation of my Apple Watch, plus the resources available on the Weight Watchers app. I have a weekly WW step goal. The way the program is formulated now, so that I earn extra points from activity is good incentive, too. 1w
Lynnsoprano @BookwormAHN I‘ve done Conqueror challenges, too. They‘re fun, and I love the medals. I‘ve done Hadrian‘s Wall, Ring of Kerry, Scotland North Coast 500 and the Cabot Trail. I haven‘t done one in 4 or 5 months, waiting until it‘s a little cooler and I feel like longer walks again. 1w
BookwormAHN @Lynnsoprano Those sound like fun 😺 1w
Read4life I use the data and challenges on my Apple Watch. I like the monthly challenges. 1w

BarkingMadRun Forgot to share an app. Hmmmm in use a bunch, but I really like Evidation which is an app that pays you for fitness. You hook up your fitness apps to it and you get points and the points become money. It used to be called Achievement 1w
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick I'm really slacking off this month w/ other life commitments. I need to figure out how to prioritize my health. That said, I have been using the DDPYoga Now app for years so I pay $7.99/month. This is not a lotus position, calming yoga. This is a former wrestler using dynamic resistance and yoga moves. He urges you to adapt to your needs & skill. Track "custom" workouts, hook up heart rate monitor, get recipes, motivational videos, etc. 5d
wanderinglynn @Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick life does happen and that‘s why #BFC is adaptable. But it is good to prioritize your health, physical & mental. I‘ve heard of DDP‘s yoga app. It looked intriguing. 👍🏻 5d

I don't typically read contemporary romance but I loved this book. Eva writes supernatural romance novels. It started as a way to get over her lost love Shane. But now he's back. I wish Eva's books were real, especially the last one.
Can't wait for the discussion #Summerheat
