Okay so in this one I go for the extra points! This was me and my sister when I was around 10 years old!

And the answer to the memories of Halloween past are :

1. Chocolates! I love them since I was a kid
2. I can't remember
3. I love it to dress for Halloween. Halloween costumes are great. Since I moved to Poland I don't celebrate Halloween.
4. One time my mom dressed me as an old princess. No pictures left.

I have to say that this is one of the few times that the movie is better than the book. I watched the movie last night and found it more interesting. The story has some good points but nothing great. So I read the book and watch the movie. How many points?

So I had been off the radar lately. But with a good reason. Vacations time!!! I finished this book before my trip but forgot to put it. 3/5 since I started vacations I drink tons of water and close my rings every day 😁 here is a beautiful view of Porto. Tons of stairs in order to arrive but the view is totally worth it! #BFCr3

I am very happy with my progress this week.

So this week I am not feeling in my best. Feeling quite down specially in the mornings. Only went to run one day. At the moment I am in vacations and this helps me to feel better. Also even if I don't run I do walk a lot. Taking all of this into consideration I decided to change my sports goal. Instead of running 90 Km I want to close 4 times per week all the activity rings.

CocoReads I don‘t run unless there‘s a bear chasing me. We have no bears in Indiana. 🤣🤣🤣 so yes, one more than me! I‘ve been off this week as well, in a funk but started snapping out of it yesterday. Vacation should help. 2mo

So yesterday I didn't manage to make sports. Had to take care of boyfriend (I don't have kids but he was the little spoiled kid so...) but today after 15 days of no gym I went for a run. Had a good timing but was hard. At 20 minutes I almost gave up. But I manage to end. Now legs hurt... But is a happy pain

I didn't put my results for week 5 and 6. And there is a reason :
Week 5: I didn't run. First 2 days was a bit down. Then on Wednesday went to a concert and the rest of the week went to countryside. I did walk a lot and close all activity rings. this is a picture is from those days.
Week 6: Got sick and was in bed with fever. Now I am better and ready for round 3
The good think is that I read 10 books that is the double than my goal
