#BFCR3 CHECK IN -- #goteam - I had a terrible workout week, too much happening and my anxiety got the best of me (even though working out is good for anxiety 😖). I can say though that this is the first time I've fallen off since the very first #bfc started, and I didn't like it at all! My nutrition did improve this week, but I'm ready for a good workout week again! #bfcr3 #bookfitnesschallenge

Megabooks Yay for nutrition!! I totally get the anxiety conundrum. It helps, but you get anxious thinking about doing it. At least that‘s how it works for me. I hope you feel better soon!! 1d
BlameJennyJane But you never got off the horse! Anxiety is a b*tch sometimes- it got me some this week too. 1d
cobwebmoth *hugs* I hope next week holds less anxiety for you. 1d

Overall happy with this week. I feel awesome with my skating progress and that‘s my priority. Also went to an amusement park today, had some treats, and feel no shame 💁🏻‍♀️ Luna also enjoyed a treat this week 😂 Just a taste! 🍦#bfcr3 #goteam @tjwill @Megabooks @bromeliad @Tineke @Emilymdxn @cobwebmoth @KathyWheeler @TheEllieMo @guinsgirlreads @wanderinglynn

cobwebmoth Awesome job! 2d
Megabooks Sounds like a great week! Your 2A looked awesome on Instagram!! 2d
Emilymdxn Yessss well done skating Queen!!! I am ridiculously proud of you 💖 I feel like if you land that jump you don‘t just deserve eating gorgeous food you require it. It‘s good to bear in mind food being nourishing but also life wouldn‘t be worth living if we didn‘t eat delicious food that makes us happy 2d

Well, this week has not been ideal. I really hope things get figured out soon, but I'm rather frustrated with medical "professionals" at the moment. I'll refrain from further complaining, though. On the positive side, sitting around so much has allowed me to finish 2 books, and spend some time creating.? #BookFitnessChallenge #BFC #BFCr3 @wanderinglynn

Avanders Ish - sounds frustrating!! Hope next week is better! 🤗😘♥️ 2d
cewilf I hope you get things sorted out!! 2d

Megabooks I‘m sorry! Doctors can definitely suck! I hope things work out soon. I‘m here if you want to email. Booksandcooks.litsy at gmail.com 💜 *hugs* 💜 2d
Emilymdxn Sending solidarity 💖💖💖 time spent muddling through with doctors can be the worst and I‘m so sorry you‘re going through it. Even bearing fitness in mind at all when things are tough is a victory though - even if all you do is keep thinking ‘I‘ll work on that when things get better‘. If you‘d like to message about anything there‘s links to my insta and goodreads on my profile you can pm me if you need. Always wanna be here for you as team captain 2d
cobwebmoth @Megabooks Thank you so much for the support!💜 2d
cobwebmoth @Emilymdxn Thank you! I really appreciate your encouragement.❤ 2d

cobwebmoth @bromeliad Thank you! 2d

Bookwormjillk Hang in there 2d
TheEllieMo Oh no, what a frustrating week it‘s been for you. Hope you make some progress with the medics soon x 2d
Meaw_catlady Don‘t let the bastards grind you down! Sending love strength and positivity your way ! 💕🙏 2d
cobwebmoth @Meaw_catlady Thank you! You're awesome! 2d
kspenmoll I hope you have some success w the right professionals. Sorry you are going through this. You got to read though! I was sick this past week so read lots & added hydrating with water as goal but did not make my exercise quotas either😉. 1d
cobwebmoth @kspenmoll Thank you! I hope you're feeling better! 1d
tjwill That is frustrating. I hope you can get it worked out quickly. Yay for creative time! 1d

So I met with the dietician at my GI doc‘s practice, and we decided on that calorie goal. So far, it‘s going pretty well. I‘m a bit hungry but 🤷🏻‍♀️ I miss sugar!

I‘m getting spinal x-rays Monday. I‘ve had two fusions and may need a third. I only have one disc left in my neck. That‘s why I was upset. I‘m just so sick of surgeries. I‘ve had 16 of them. It‘s just not a pastime I want to have. 😔 I‘m in constant pain.

#bfc #bfcr3 #goteam #checkin

bromeliad Wow, you're so tenacious! I don't know what I would do in a situation like that. I miss sugar too--we got this! 👐🏻 2d
Megabooks @bromeliad Thank you so much!! It‘s hard, but I have a very supportive family, so that helps!! I‘m still doing small amts of sugar. Like 4-5 white chocolate m&ms, but trying to avoid a full dessert!! 2d
cobwebmoth First, you're doing great with your goals! Second, I'm so sorry that you're in that kind of pain and that you've had to deal with that many surgeries. That seriously sucks. I'm still here if you ever need me. *hugs* 2d

Megabooks @cobwebmoth Thank you!! I really appreciate your kindness! Sometimes I don‘t know what to say that doesn‘t come across as whining. This is the hand I‘ve been dealt since I was 17. I‘ve had some setbacks, but I‘ve accomplished a lot. It‘s just frustrating as hell to get knocked on my ass again!! 😡 (Mad at the situation, not you. You‘re wonderful!) 2d
wanderinglynn Way to go! 🙌🏻 You are doing great! But I am sorry you‘re in pain and having to potentially face another surgery. 💚 We‘re all here for you. 2d
sprainedbrain You are doing so well! I hope they can figure something out to help you pain. ❤️ 2d
Megabooks @wanderinglynn Thank you so much for your support, Lynn!! The BFC is such a great idea and has really given me something to focus on and strive for!! 2d
Megabooks @sprainedbrain Thank you!! I‘m supposed to be able to start seeing PT and do TENS therapy and massive icing, which helps the pain a bit, so I‘m excited about that. 👍🏻 2d
Emilymdxn So sorry about your back/neck 😞 that‘s incredibly awful, it‘s horrible to feel like you‘re stuck going round and round the same problems. Best of luck with your surgery, we‘re all always here for you whatever happens 💖 2d
Megabooks @Emilymdxn Thank you so much, Emily!! Your support and your leadership of our team is greatly appreciated!! 💙💙 2d
cewilf I‘m so sorry about your back/neck, that sounds incredibly frustrating :( I hope things get better and improve for you soon! 2d

8little_paws Yikes! Wishing ther best for you. 2d
BarbaraBB Oow that sounds horrible. That pain I mean. Wishing for a good outcome 💜 2d
Megabooks @8little_paws Thanks so much!! 💜💜 2d
Megabooks @BarbaraBB Thank you very much, Barbara!! 💙💙 2d
CaroPi I hope the surgery helps you. It must be a really hard time right now. Crossing my fingers for everything to improve. 2d
Megabooks @CaroPi Thank you so much!! There are a few more steps before surgery, and maybe it can still be avoided, which is what I‘m hoping!! 💙💙 2d
tjwill Sorry about the bad news. I hope you won‘t have to have any more surgeries, and good luck on the new goal! You can do it! 1d
Megabooks @tjwill Thank you so much for the support!! I hope I don‘t have to have surgery, too! 🤞🏻🤞🏻 1d
kspenmoll So so sorry about your neck. That is so hard. I hope you can avoid surgery. Sending ypu ❤️ 13h
Megabooks @kspenmoll Thank you!! 💙💙 The hug is very much appreciated!! I have neck x-rays in a few hours. 🤞🏻🤞🏻 13h

Happy week 2! I‘m finally back on my feet after a week sick with some awful virus, and being very active in Marseille! I‘d be lying if I said I was minding what I ate this week - these are the only 3 days I get in Marseille in my life so far so yup I‘m eating and drinking everything, wouldn‘t have it any other way. I didn‘t read loads while I was sick so catching up a bit now.

Megabooks Enjoy your trip! Eat whatever you want, it‘s France! Practically a sin not to. 😁 I‘m so glad you‘re better! 3d
wanderinglynn I love France! ❤️ Hope you‘re having an amazing time! And great week! 🙌🏻 Happy you‘re feeling better. 3d

bromeliad Awesome!! So glad you got better in time for the trip! Enjoy!! 3d
cewilf I‘ve always wanted to go to France! I took French in school and feel like I could get by 😂 have a wonderful time! 2d
cobwebmoth Enjoy yourself! 2d
Emilymdxn @megabooks @wanderinglynn @bromeliad @cewilf @cobwebmoth thanks so much all! So relieved I got better in time! Now if only I‘d worked on my abysmal french at all... 2d
Megabooks I can say, “je ne parle pas francais.” Which I guess is important! 🤣🤣 I hope you know a few more phrases!! 2d
Emilymdxn @megabooks I‘ve got ‘I don‘t speak french‘, ‘do you speak English or German‘, ‘yes‘, ‘no‘, ‘please‘, ‘thank you‘, ‘sorry‘, ‘excuse me‘, ‘this chair is taken‘ and ‘white wine please‘ 😅 my choice to take German and Spanish at school isn‘t something I regret apart from when I‘m in France! 2d
tjwill Great week! Enjoy that time in France! 2d

This book effing broke me. I cried for every girl. (TW in spoiler tag.) The full-cast audio recording was brilliant, down to the MC‘s stutter. The ending is open, fair warning.

Sadie‘s sister has been murdered, and Sadie has left to avenge it. The book alternates between Sadie‘s narration and journey to find this man, and a Serial-like fictional podcast looking into Sadie‘s disappearance. Brilliant, but sad.

britt_brooke I read, and loved this in print, but have considered rereading on audio because I keep hearing how good it is. (edited) 3d
Megabooks @britt_brooke I haven‘t read it in print, but the audio definitely enhanced the story. Really well done 3d
ShelleyBooksie I loved the written version - I bet the audio would have added a lot more 3d
Megabooks @ShelleyBooksie I really think it did. The cast was incredible. 3d

Reading at the rink between sessions. Started this yesterday and couldn‘t put it down. I‘m hoping to finish it over the weekend, even though it‘s pretty long! Didn‘t skate great for the first hour, but I‘m going to try and regroup for the next one with my coach 💪 #bfcr3 #goteam @tjwill @Megabooks @bromeliad @Tineke @Emilymdxn @cobwebmoth @KathyWheeler @TheEllieMo @guinsgirlreads

I think this book would be all the more heart-stopping if I were a mother. It‘s a little thriller, a lot sci-fi, a bit horror, all awesome! She‘s one of the few authors I read who writes any of those. If you enjoy Blake Crouch, you‘ll probably like this.

If you‘re a Helen Phillips fan, this is stranger than The Beautiful Bureaucrat, not as weird as her short stories. 4⭐️

Reagan-reads Excellent review! Stacked. 5d
lele1432 This seems to be a pretty polarizing read, especially depending on if you have kids or not. I'm glad you liked it as much I did! 😊 I will have to check out some of her other works. 5d
Megabooks @Reagan-reads Thanks! 5d

Megabooks @lele1432 It is! I wouldn‘t try to put myself in the shoes of a young mother (or any mother!) reading this, but the story, though strange, is well thought out and executed, IMO. I like non-world-building sci-fi and horror without torture and dismembering, so she‘s one of those sweet spot authors for me! 5d
lele1432 That's a really good description! 5d
BarbaraTheBibliophage Nice review! I just saw this on Scribd and now I may go save it. Thanks! ♥️📚👊🏻 5d
Megabooks @BarbaraTheBibliophage Thank you! I hope you like it. 👍🏻😁 5d
Cinfhen #stacked but I‘ll be sure to read in the daytime and when I‘m not home alone 😱 5d
Megabooks @Cinfhen I didn‘t like reading it in the dark, but it‘s a good book! 5d
Cinfhen Do you recommend the audio??? 5d
Megabooks @Cinfhen Yes! Great narrator! 5d
