This is me this week so far #bfc family! I'm not getting very far with my fitness goals (only 2 hours in this weekend!). But to be fair, the tacos have been pretty darn delicious 😂😂

Hey peeps, did you know @wanderinglynn has #bookfitnesschallenge round 2 sign ups open right now? You should check it out!!

My Goals this round are pretty much the same as last, but I'm ok with that. I'd rather make it obtainable rather than have it be something that stresses me out so much I drop out. I am going to challenge myself to seek a new form of exercise this round though, to keep it fresh!!

Clwojick Way to go! Can‘t wait to see some more of your posts! ♥️🧡💛 2w

My favorite book so far for #bfc has been this one. Third in the series, these are characters that capture your heart, not because they are perfect but because you see their flaws.

#bfc What Motivates You?
Well, I'm truly a sucker for a good motivational quote, but my real motivation is just to be a better me. I don't want to be the person who isn't able to do what she wants be it travel, wear an outfit, go to events ect, because she isn't active enough. So, what's your motivation?

#wondrouswednesday @Eggs
1) It honestly depends- do I have book club? Am I reading a series? Has a book fallen off my bookshelf and hit me recently? Then it's usually that one 😂
2) No because we don't have those around here.
3) My own brain saying we need to get other stuff done!!!
4) Salty snacks! Popcorn, crackers & cheese, ect.
