This book was not at all what I expected, but in a good way.
My Mystery Message Swap box is all packed and ready to go! @TheReadingMermaid
So my #BFC didn‘t turn out like I expected. After I found out my foot was broken yesterday I took the day to sulk. Aside from the challenge I was really bummed because walking is how I keep myself sane. Today I declared sulking time to be over, and have been thinking about new ways to improve my fitness. Not counting points any more, but I can still challenge myself.
Oh, and I have finished 4/6 audiobooks, so there‘s that! Plus, Batman socks!
Looks like my time with the #BFC has come to an end. Broke my foot climbing a tree with my daughter 😳
Busy day: working complete with awkward conversations, gardening, fishing with my daughter‘s Brownie troop, and almost finishing my #BFC book. Feeling much better than yesterday thankfully.
I‘m struggling to get my steps today for #BFC Still need a thousand more to make my goal.
Started a re-listen of this book today and enjoying it much more than the walking 😜
Another day of yard work. My #BFC goal was to hit 15k steps a day, but 10k steps plus three hours weeding and bringing mulch across the road is equivalent I think. At least I hope it is, because I can‘t move any more.
Only 45 minutes left in this audiobook, and I can‘t wait to see how it‘s resolved.
This is the perfect summer read- not deep literature, but just what you want for a day reading outside by water.
Today‘s #bfc step count is brought to you by yard work and this very good audiobook.
I started this audiobook yesterday for #BFC and am really enjoying it.
Today‘s step count is low, but I didn‘t realize my Fitbit was dead until noon. I took all of my regular walks though so I should be good.
Tonight‘s walk was fun because the kids came and talked to all of the neighborhood pets. This cat is called Merlin.
I absolutely loved this as an audiobook. Rick Bragg is an excellent author and reader, and I will look for more by him.
Week one #bfc check in:
15,000 steps a day- ✅
(Yesterday was only about 9k but I made up for it on the other days. A work retreat kept me in meetings all day yesterday. Life happens.)
Vitamins every day- ✅
2 audiobooks read while walking/moving (goal is 6)
My Southern Journey
An Incomplete Revenge (Maisie Dobbs)
Looking forward to next week when the weather should be better and I don‘t have to travel
Pictured is a pretty pond I saw on my walk
On a work retreat with no time to read or walk. Going slightly nuts.
Today was so busy I hit my step count without trying. And maybe I washed my vitamins down with some ice cream, but at least I took them!
I‘m loving this audiobook and am sad it‘s almost over.

I have a company retreat this week, so this thriller about a retreat gone wrong appealed to me.
Today was one of those days where I had to drag myself out to meet my goal, and then I sat down as soon as possible. Oh well, I got it done.
Seen on my walk: a random shoe on a fence.
I had to take three shorter walks today in order to dodge the monsoons sweeping through. I would have never made the effort if it weren‘t for the #bfc so thanks @wanderinglynn
I‘m really loving this book too! It‘s great on audio.
Pictured here: my daughter taking advantage of the huge puddles in my second walk.
#bfc day two check in. Not a lot of reading today, but hit my steps goal and am about to take my vitamins.
My parents are in town so we took the kids to soccer and explored some local wetlands.
Looking forward to settling in to some travel essays this afternoon
Here we go! Excited for the first day of the #bookfitnesschallenge
My goals are simple: 15,000 steps a day, take my vitamins, and listen to 6 audiobooks. As you can see I‘ve got miles to go before I sleep, literally 😜
Good luck everyone!
A good walk- beat the rain, saw some chipmunks, and finally finished this audiobook which started strong, but was really dragging at the end.
I‘ve been listening to this in the car. Very weird but in a good way.
Listened to the What Should I Read Next podcast on my audio walk today. Looks like I just beat a storm!
This week‘s episode is really good!
Louie is joining us for story time tonight.
Went for a walk today and was rewarded with daisies ❤️
I‘ve been reading this series one per month this year. This is the only one I don‘t own on audio, probably because all of the fighting and teenage angst drives me nuts. Started it on paper this morning. Hoping it‘s less nuts inducing this time around.
