According to Apple, I didn‘t meet my step goal this week - but I spent so much time running to catch waves with the boogie board today that I say I made it pretty darn close. 🌊 Finishing my last day of my yoga challenge in a few minutes and I also finished 4 books. I started a new eating program thru work so that goal shifted again, but still a good week for #bookfitnesschallenge #BFCR2
(Today‘s beach not pictured - this is Canary Islands 😊)

wanderinglynn Way to go! 🙌🏻 Sounds like a super fun week! 1w
Lucy_Anywhere Go you! 🙌 well done on completing the yoga challenge 1w

BeckyB Fun! I haven‘t boogie boarded in forever. Great job this week! 1w
twohectobooks @BeckyB to be honest I‘ve never really figured out what boogie boarding is to begin with lol 4d
mcipher @twohectobooks It‘s so fun! If you get the chance, definitely try it. 2d
mcipher @wanderinglynn Beach days make every week in summer fun. So lucky to be so close! 2d
mcipher @Lucy_Anywhere Next up is chakra yoga! 2d
mcipher @BeckyB Thanks! I hadn‘t in a couple years but it was a blast this week. 2d

Who needs some extra encouragement? Post a comment to let us know.

#positivity tip: Positivity is not about forcing ourselves to be happy or masking our emotions. It's about changing the lens through which we view ourselves, others, situations, life. A great way to start is simply to acknowledge the negative thought(s). Acknowledge it, accept it, and then try to let it go. 🎶 [insert me singing here] 😉

julesG Bite sized chunks are a good way of getting things done! 1w
sudi This is a great idea, i'm going to try this in week 4 😊👍 1w
Crazeedi You have been such a motivator for me! Thank you!!👏❤️ 1w
Chrissyreadit ❤️❤️❤️❤️ 1w
kspenmoll Love your positivity tip, especially your singing!!! 1w
Allylu I break up my steps, too: 2K at 10, 12, 2, 4 and sometimes 6. It‘s working for me. I will make my 40,000 again this week. 1w
wanderinglynn @Crazeedi 😘 Y‘all are awesome! 💜 1w
wanderinglynn @kspenmoll Be glad Litsy doesn‘t support video—otherwise you‘d see me belt out some show tunes! 😂 1w
wanderinglynn @Allylu 👍🏻👍🏻 it makes it easier to achieve 1w
wanderinglynn @Chrissyreadit ☺️❤️❤️❤️ 1w
wanderinglynn @sudi keep us posted how it works for you. 👍🏻 1w
wanderinglynn @julesG yes it is! 👍🏻 1w
jillannjohn Love the idea of splitting up your step goals. I think I‘m going to try this. 1w
mcipher I love breaking up steps! Great idea. I will probably make some more goal shifts this week to account for life but I‘m plugging away and feeling good about where I am. And team #litnfit has been amazing so far!! 🤗 1w
Purplemoonmyst I did a lot better than I did the first two weeks. I am now. Pain free I will keep it up! I do the tone it up workouts and try to walk a bit more but it has rained every single day for a month grrr 1w
Crazeedi @kspenmoll @wanderinglynn singing helps the motivation!! 🎶🎶 1w
Lova Not going to lie- I had no motivation this week. I haven‘t looked at steps or distance but I know my numbers are way off. I‘ve kinda got the summer‘s almost over blues. 1w
Crazeedi @Lova turn that frown upside down! @wanderinglynn will keep you inspired! We are all doing what we can, and I'm sure you are too! A day at a time!!!😘 1w
cewilf Love the idea of breaking it down. That helps me as well! Definitely not as overwhelming. 1w
wanderinglynn @jillannjohn 👍🏻 let us know how it goes! 1w
wanderinglynn @mcipher 🙌🏻 Yes, I think the small teams have been awesome. 1w
wanderinglynn @Purplemoonmyst Being pain free helps a lot. So glad you‘re doing well. Each week will hopefully be a little bit better. Just keep moving forward, one step, one day at a time. You got this! 🙌🏻 1w
wanderinglynn @Lova it‘s only July 13! There‘s still plenty of summer left! Plus fall is an awesome season. (It‘s my fave.) You got this! 🙌🏻 just keep moving forward, one step, one day at a time. 1w
wanderinglynn @cewilf Exactly. If I feel things are too overwhelming, I tend not to do them. (Or I procrastinate indefinitely 😂). So breaking things into bite sized chunks, whether it be exercise, writing, or cleaning my whole house, has always worked for me. 👍🏻 1w
Clwojick I love your suggestion! I really miss my morning walks, especially on my days off, and am hoping I can get myself back I to that routine instead of shoving my face into my textbooks the second I wake up. 😂 1w
dariazeoli Great idea about chunking it up! And if we‘re singing show tunes, I vote Les Mis 🙌 1w
wanderinglynn @Clwojick Walking/exercise will help you study. It gets the blood flowing, which provides oxygen to your brain, making it work more efficiently. So see, you need to walk! 😉 1w
wanderinglynn @dariazeoli Hm, not my musical. But can I interest you in a song from the portfolios of Rogers & Hammerstein, Disney, or Andrew Lloyd Webber? 😉😂 1w

Week 1 done! #bookfitnesschallenge
I surprised myself when I tallied up my numbers this morning. I may not have finished any books, but I'm halfway through the three I've got going, so I'm on track! Thought I was going to get a headstart on W2 by running this morning, but at 7am it was 25 degrees out, so I went back to bed... 😂😂

(you'll never meet someone with as many pictures of bees on their phone as I do. never.)

Lucy_Anywhere I did the same thing! But thought, nah, when I opened the window! 3w
dariazeoli I love the crown on the 🐝- and you had a great week! 3w

My #BFCr2 check in! I read three books last week 🙌 so I'm happy about that. And although I didn't exercise everyday, I went for a couple of walks and spent two days digging out my classroom which #LitnFit have decided totally counts as exercise! Also, I'm slowly melting in this heatwave... It's 32 C / 90 F already 😧

okthislooksbad I'm just looking at that picture of the harbour thinking "that looks so serene and lovely" and then I remember how hot it probably is... ☀ ☠ Great first week you've had, stay cool and don't forget sunscreen! 3w
DebbieGrillo Love the photo composition! 3w
twohectobooks Hope the heatwave doesn‘t last too much longer! 3w
mcipher I hope it cools down soon! Great first week - I bet cleaning the classroom is better than an aerobics class. 😆 3w

Phew, it's getting hot this week 😓 my class and I went for a walk this morning so I've met my fitness goal for today! #BookFitnessChallenge #BFC #LitnFit

How's everyone's Tuesday going?

@mcipher @krayoncolorz @DebbieGrillo @BeckyB @okthislooksbad @twohectobooks @Books.Bottles.and.Babies

twohectobooks Yikes, hope you can stay cool or at least hydrated! My local radio station was talking about this European heat wave this morning. 4w
okthislooksbad Oh wow, I thought we had it bad at around 30. What's the trick to not actually melting?? 😂 ☀ ☀ 4w
Lucy_Anywhere @twohectobooks @okthislooksbad stay in the air conditioning! At least it's not as hot here as it's supposed to get in mainland Spain and Paris 4w
akckitty My Tuesday has been great! Not too bad of weather in Portland today. I'm hoping to get more reading done for the bfc goals :) you're doing great! 4w
Lucy_Anywhere @akckitty thanks! I've been doing better at the reading than the fitness lol! 4w

I walked 5.3 K today while listening to the tagged book. #BFCr2 starts tomorrow and I'm so much more prepared this time. Last round, I suffered a spinal injury that persisted for weeks, and I wasn't interested in modifying my goals.

My goals are different this time. I won't be working, so I can expect a bit more from myself. I intend to walk at least 50000 steps a week and read 6 books in 6 weeks.
