Laughing at my previous shelf from 3 hours ago, thinking I would go for a walk. Nope, I‘m currently starting this audiobook while I drift off to sleep. Time for a nap/ the possibility of sleeping from 8am-6am 😅

It turns out that starting a new job (especially on a day when it‘s pouring) is not great for my steps 🤣 Normally I would be passed this amount at 9am. Due to the rain, I didn‘t even walk to work, or leave the building at lunch. Off to pace the hallways for a while, I guess. Then on to studying. 😅

JeansBookshelf I work outside so I can't get my steps in when the weather is cold or rainy. Barely made it over 3,000 steps yesterday due to weather. Today I'm 500 steps away from 10,000. Hit 10,000 all 5 days at work last week though. 4h

Next up for #BookFitnessChallenge ! ♥️💜💚

I have just recently found this author, and I have LOVED every single books so far! So far they‘ve all been audiobooks. Very easy to listen to, with relatable characters, and a good storyline that keeps you interested right until the very last page. So, I guess I‘m going into this one with high hopes💚


marleed I‘ll check this author out! 2d

Finished my 10th book for the #BookFitnessChallenge just as I was walking into the clinic this morning. I chose to walk, so I got in 5,000 steps before 9am! 👏🏻

I really enjoyed this book! I connected with the majority of the characters, and watching the family dynamics play out. I would definitely recommend it for anyone who is looking for a light and easy read.

@hermyknee add this one to your audiobook list 😉

Some of you guys have already shared some stacks of your owned #BannedBooks, but we‘d like to see a stack or a list of which #BannedBooks you‘re hoping to read this week! 📚

Are there any books that have been hanging out in #MountTBR for too long? Maybe this is the week to finally read them! 🤗

Dedication | Emma McLaughlin, Nicola Kraus
post image

I‘m always thinking of new ways to challenge myself, especially when it comes to reading. I‘m curious about choosing books to read simply based off of their dedication or epigram. I‘m hoping to spend a week or two dedicated to doing this. I might select off of my own shelves, but I‘m curious to see what you‘ve guys got for me too. Please post some pictures of your favourite dedications/epigrams and tag the book they‘re from! ⬇️⬇️

Clwojick If I love them as much as you do, they might just make my list of books to read! I absolutely cannot wait to see what you guys choose! Use the hashtags #WinningDedication or #WinningEpigram and tag me. ♥️💙🧡 2d

Opening the front cover and seeing this put an instant smile on my face, and made my heart feel warm. 💗

It got me thinking about how lately authors are using an epigram, rather than a specific dedication, to get a special message across, right from the first page of the book. When I see a really good epigram, I tend to immediately fall in love with the book. Anyone else like that?

I‘ve been meaning to read this for ages, and thanks to #MayMadness I finally got around to it.

There‘s something to be said for writing about such a necessary yet hushed subject, and doing it in a way that will hit home no matter what your age, gender, or sexual identity. This book had me smiling, laughing, cheering, and crying. I almost want to read it again already. ♥️🧡💛💚💙💜

rretzler 42 (good number!) I never had to read the classics in school, so these all books I‘ve read on my own. There are several that I will never read (I‘m talking about you, James Joyce), but many that I intend to eventually read. 2d

So... more news on my personal goal of walking 100,000 steps in one day.

I did a little more research, and I‘m honestly not sure how I can get this done in one day. With my height, it‘s estimated that I would have to walk between 63-65kms. Pictured is a map of a good chunk of our city. This is something close to the root I would want to take, and it‘s still just over half the Kms I‘d need.

Back to more planning 👏🏻😅💪🏻

CoverToCoverGirl I‘m interested in attempting this if that‘s okay and if we can do it on a nice weather day that we both have off. I suspect you‘d need to just keep moving non stop the entire day... (edited) 3d
baes I‘ve hit 20,000 several times and my legs and feet felt it. Lol 😂 I cant imagine. 20,000 is a couple hours on the treadmill (give or take) for me. 3d
See All 15 Comments
wanderinglynn I‘ve done 30,000 steps in a day and that took a good chunk of time and involved a half marathon. I can‘t imagine doing 100,000! 😮 What a goal! 🙌🏻 3d
Simona Admirable goal! Good luck 👍 🤞 3d
JamieArc I walked the Camino de Santiago which meant I was walking from 6am until 4pm with a lunch stop and maybe some other short stops. I‘m pretty sure we never hit that many steps in a day. It‘s quite a lofty goal - I hope you have a great reward for yourself if you hit it 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 3d
Caterina The most I've ever hit was a little over 40,000 in one day, and that was when I was traveling. But I've also never tried to hit a huge step goal. Good luck!!! Can't wait to see your route and if you do it!! 💪 3d
nu-bibliophile You can do it! 2d
Clwojick @CoverToCoverGirl I managed to coerce one of my girlfriends into doing it with me. We‘re hoping to do it on one of the mondays coming up in the next 2-3 weeks, but we haven‘t set an exact date yet. I‘ll let you know when we do! 2d
CoverToCoverGirl That‘s excellent I‘m off on Monday‘s! 2d
Clwojick @CoverToCoverGirl 😂😂 you might want to take the Tuesday off too, in case you‘re super sore. 2d
baes So I was curious about this, and looked into it. One person who did it said they reached it over a course of 16.5 hours and 41 miles. Good-luck!! 2d
BookwormAHN Good luck 🍀 2d
Clwojick @baes 😅 yeah, I‘m pretty sure it‘s not going to be possible for me, but I‘m definitely going to give it my all. 2d

I can‘t believe it‘s already the last day of week 3 for #MayMadness. This was the first graphic novel that I‘ve had time to read.

It was darker than I was expecting, and it had me guessing throughout the whole story, but I still thoroughly enjoyed it. I think i would really enjoy reading the original novel, so I‘ll be on the lookout for it at the thrift store.

Another quick morning walk with my audiobook and a cup of tea. It was so windy out, that I barley hit 4,000 steps. Hopefully it‘ll warm up later, and I can head out for another walk. Otherwise I‘m thinking it‘s going to be a lazy day for the #BookFitnessChallenge

HOLY MOLY! I just seen that this is a possible badge to get on fitbit😅

Have any of my fellow #BookFitnessChallenge buddies earned this badge?! If so, how did you manage it!?

Maybe this is something I can challenge myself to do. Take a whole day, and a backpack of snacks + water, and just walk all around my city. Stop for meals + to charge phone.

Maybe this will be something I‘ll challenge myself to do closer to the end of the 6 weeks 🤔😅

CoverToCoverGirl The most steps I‘ve ever gotten is around 30, 000 and that was a day spent hiking for several hours in our national park... I think we did something in the vicinity of 25 kilometres. It certainly would be an impressive badge to earn though. 4d
julesG I suppose it's doable. About 60 kilometres, probably. 4d
marleed I can‘t imagine. For me I can go about 7 miles in one shot. After that I need specialized clothing from head to toe. Like that little knot on a T-shirt where the side seam and armhole all come together- yea that little thing becomes a weapon against my body! 4d
BookwormAHN Good luck 🍀 4d
TheEllieMo The most I‘ve got was 81,000, on a sponsored walk along the Thames path. Started at 8am, rest breaks every 8 miles, got to 81k by midnight, did a further 22k in the small hours of the next day. About 75km in total. Could have got the 100k step badge if the event had started at 5am😂 It was a lot of strain on the body, that sort of distance needs training for to build up endurance. This was an organised event with medical teams on standby. (edited) 4d
4thhouseontheleft That's a distance that you would definitely have to train for! Even when I go on full-day hikes, I don't come near that kind of steps. 4d
OrangeMooseReads That would be a challenge. It would be interesting to see how well you could do. Would definitely need rest periods and possibly a partner in the adventure. 4d
Clwojick @TheEllieMo I‘ve surpassed 45,000 a few times.... back when my job consisted of me walking a lot, then I would walk the hour and a half home. I would definitely need to do some training, stretching and planning! 3d
Clwojick @OrangeMooseReads I‘ve always done all my crazy walks with my best friend who‘s moved out of town. We used to track out our plan to walk to NYC. 😂 I told her I would have to plan it on a day when we could talk on the phone for hours while I walked all around town 3d

Hey my #MayMadness and #BookFittnessChallenge buddies!

I know I haven‘t been posting as much these last few days! I‘m sorry! I just started four new medical courses online, and it‘s been taking most of my time and focus. Aside from my audiobooks during my walks, or right before bed, I haven‘t really had any time for leisure reading. I also start a new job on Wednesday, so just know that I‘m cheering you on, even if I‘m not posting as much!

wanderinglynn Wow! A new job + online courses?!? Go you! 🙌🏻 Just remember to take care of you. Schedule yourself some down time and do something fun just because. 💜 4d
Clwojick @wanderinglynn Absolutely! Thankfully it‘s only a part time position, and only 3 shifts a week once training is done. It‘s going to be something totally different and way out of my comfort zone, but you‘ve gotta challenge yourself, right? ♥️ On the plus side, it should be about a 40 min walk to work, and I plan on walking there and back as often as weather permits. 4d
Meaw_catlady I always need this reminder! 4d

This was a light, fun story about how crazed some people can get about the need to be “thin”. From secret workout locations, to special tea, to eating clay as a meal... there is every type of ridiculous diet craze in this book. Yes, I rolled my eyes. But I also laughed out loud more often than not. If you don‘t take it to seriously, it‘s a pick.

Hey my fellow #BookFitnessChallenge Littens!

Today is the last day of week 1, and I was wondering how everyone is doing! So I though I‘d make a little questionnaire 💕

1. Yes!
2. When I‘m bored, I much prefer going for a quick 20 minute walk, then sit on the couch and watch tv. Also, I have no motivation to do weightlifting.
3. All the scenery posts!
4. Mr Penumbras 24 hr Bookstore
5. 3L water & 12 flights of stairs

@wanderinglynn 💜💗💜

Clwojick Also, does anyone have a good app that tracks flights of stairs? I have a Fitbit, but one on that‘s updated enough to count floors. I also have my health app on my phone, but it tends to miss about 30% for the flights I do. And I downloaded Pacer, but I think it also counts flights when I take the elevator... I don‘t know. Maybe I‘ll just have to manually count, but sometimes I do stairs when I‘m out and about, which makes that harder. 6d

@hermyknee I took a quick look through your read stack, and whipped up some suggestions. A little bit of everything. I have listened to a lot (!!!) of audiobooks, so if you want any other suggestions or are thinking a specific genre, just let me know!

Hopefully this helps you get over your reading slump for #BookFitnessChallenge 💙

hermyknee Thank you!!! These are great! I‘ve read Highly Illogical Behavior and Damned, but I haven‘t read any of the others! I really appreciate the recommendations! Sometimes it‘s hard to know if a book will be good on audio, so I‘m glad to know that these are!! ♥️♥️♥️ you rock! 1w
Clwojick No worries! Like I said, just let me know if you want anymore recommendations ♥️💙 @hermyknee 1w

Finished off this audiobook (5/18) just as I was walking up to my door with my coffee in hand. I really enjoyed it! I could see it making a great movie, if they were to adapt it properly. Definitely gets a recommendation from me.

I‘m probably not going to get too many more steps in tonight, so I thought I‘d share my steps now. Then it‘s back to studying for me! 😉

Ash.on.the.line Nice work! Looks like some great weather! 😊 1w
Clwojick @Ash.on.the.line 😂😂 I guess it depends on what you consider nice. It was a high of 9 degrees. A lot of people say they would freeze here, but I‘m used to it. We have VERY long winters here, so once it hits 15 it‘s T-shirt and shorts weather for most people. It does get up to the 40s, but we really only have two months of summer. 1w

On Monday, I tracked how far it is from my apartment to Tim Hortons.
So, today I needed a little study break, and really wanted to see what happened next in this book.... so I figured I could get the rest of my daily steps in by walking to Tim‘s for coffee.

Hey, find what motivated you, right? Maybe I‘ll track how many steps to the bookstore... that would be sure to get me moving 😂😂😂

#Bookfitnesschallenge @wanderinglynn

CoverToCoverGirl How many steps is it to your local bookstore? 😎 You certainly earned your coffee! 1w
Clwojick @CoverToCoverGirl I don‘t know! I‘d have to walk there, and track the route to find out. But like, for educational purposes.... so it‘s okay, right? 1w
CoverToCoverGirl Absolutely! And tell no one! 😂 1w

wanderinglynn Way to go! 🙌🏻 If I could (meaning there were sidewalks the whole way), I‘d totally walk to the bookstore. 👍🏻 1w
Clwojick @wanderinglynn what about your thrift store or library? Any accessible by walking? 1w
BookwormAHN Nice job 👏🏻 1w
monalyisha I‘ve been to Tim Horton‘s so few times in my life (there are none nearby!) but it‘s the first place I ever had mint coffee, so it‘s got a special place in my heart. 🖤🍃 1w
Clwojick When they first opened up they had something called a “hot smoothie” and it was basically like a caffeinated flavoured hot milkshake. It was amazing. They had raspberry, mint, Irish cream, vanilla, and butterscotch. They were so good. I almost cried when they stopped carrying them. 😂 @monalyisha 1w
monalyisha @Clwojick My theory is that it must‘ve been the branding. 😆 There‘s something about the term “hot milkshake” that just doesn‘t seem right... 1w
Clwojick I don‘t think they branded it that way. That‘s just how I remember it tasting. Lol. @monalyisha they sold it for like 5+ years than started Coming out with all these fancy lattes and whatnot. 1w
monalyisha @Clwojick Ha! Okay. Phew. 😅 So sorry for your loss, though! 1w

Two days left for week 1 of #BookFitnessChallenge, so even though I woke up, and wanted to immediately shove my brain back into my textbooks... I made myself keep up with (new) my morning routine. Tea, audiobook, walk to the lake. 💙

My thought of the day: Even when you think something‘s NOT going to work (matching my Archie tee & teal sneakers with my grey peplum trousers) TRY IT ANYWAYS! You never know. I ended up loving this outfit!

Proof that my walking outfits aren‘t always put together! Tonight I‘m wandering the hallways in my husbands sweater, black yoga pants, and my new purple Keds that I‘m trying to stretch out a bit.

My online medical classes started today, I had an interview, and Nolan came home after another 2 weeks at the mine.

I may be getting in my steps later than usual, but I‘m still trucking along 😉

Well, I definitely surpassed my daily goal of 7,000 steps 😊 Today was a good day, and I just really wanted to get out there and get moving. My online classes start tomorrow, so I‘m sure I‘ll be a lot more stationary in the days to come. At least until I get into the swing of things. ♥️💙💜 Hope y‘all had a fantastic day.

Although I 100% do not regret walking the 11,000 steps to and from the grocery store this afternoon... but I definitely DO regret my choice of footwear! 😂These boots have ruined my feet, and I‘ll be surprised if I can move tomorrow!😂😂 #BookFitnessChallenge

4thhouseontheleft Ouch! Foot bath time! Way to go for walking, AND carrying the groceries home! 1w
LapReader I don‘t have a car so I cart stuff around with me all the time. I will never forget the time my perfectly fine shoes just disintegrated on me. I had to sticky tape them back together at my destination then I promptly threw them in the bin when I arrived home. Hope your next walk goes better. 1w

Finished my 2nd audiobook for the #BookFitnessChallenge while walking the lake trails today. It was perfect weather, a little windy, but not to cold. I had my vanilla earl grey tea to keep me cozy, and a light and easy read. This book was really enjoyable. Likeable characters, and an easy going rhythm that made it perfect for walking.
