I don‘t even know what happened. #BFC round 2 ended and I had know idea 😂

So hi to my new team! Here are my goals even though we are checking in. Sorry I‘ve been busy trying to save the world. @Scochrane26 @Dragonfairykats @hes7 @LapReader @Catlover23 @Meghan1 @Sresendez12 @wanderinglynn

Week 1 some days I met the goal. Mostly trying to recover from Washington, D.C. and plan an event for next weekend.

Dragonfairykats Great goals!! 3mo
Laughterhp Great goals! Thanks for posting! 😊 3mo

Today I marched with Students and Moms Demand Action in Washington DC to demand common sense gun laws. Tomorrow we call our senators and ask them to pass the Background Checks Expansion Act.

Weekly checkin read some things and lots of walking in dc

wanderinglynn Great goals! And way to go. We need some common sense guns laws. 👍 4mo

A review and check in for #bfc #bfcr2!

First the book. At first I felt the book didn‘t feel genuine. But as I continued in and heard more and more stories I changed my mind. While part of it feels for the big show of running for higher office one day I saw through to the man who chose to live in the neighborhood. Overall a good book.

Now for week 5 check in: it was hot! But got in 86,159 steps. Did some stretching which I still need work on.

mcipher Wow, that‘s a lot of steps!! 👏👏 Good job on the stretching - it‘s tough starting a new habit. 😊 4mo
Lucy_Anywhere Wow - that's an amazing number of steps. Well done you 🙌 4mo

Week 4 #BFC check in! My week has gone well although it has been SO HOT 🥵. Logged 80,357 steps and completely finished one book. I‘m close to finishing another and half way through a third. The steps have definitely been harder to achieve with the humidity.

Next week will have to focus on some audiobooks as my glasses were broken today. #keepgoing

wanderinglynn Way to go! 🙌🏻 A great week! 4mo
Lucy_Anywhere Oh no! Sorry about your glasses! I had a pair snapped in two by an (accidental) basketball to the face and had to go around with them taped together for months until I could a new pair 🙈 4mo
krayoncolorz @Lucy_Anywhere may have to do that if it takes awhile. I can function ok but really can‘t see all that well. Long periods of time will give me a headache. 4mo

Big karate show today but before the makeup here is my #nofilter #nomakeup selfie for the #bfcr2.

A black belt is just a white belt that never gave up.

Lucy_Anywhere I hope the show went well! I love the ribbons in your hair - so cute! 4mo
krayoncolorz @Lucy_Anywhere thank you! It did. Finally home after a full day of setup and then performing. Sadly someone broke my glasses 😭 (edited) 4mo
wanderinglynn Beautiful! ❤️ And such a great smile. I also like your hair ribbons. 👍🏻 But sorry your glasses got broken. ☹️ Thank you for sharing. 4mo
krayoncolorz @wanderinglynn thank you! I‘m due some new ones but wasn‘t really planning it so soon. And now I can‘t read well until I get new ones. I‘ll have to audiobook it until then. 4mo

Wanted to get five miles in this morning but after 4.3 miles the sky opened up and lightening crackled all around. Ended up soaking wet as well as my kid‘s cross country team. I‘ll still hit my step goal today though so that‘s good! Started a new book which is tagged. Starting the week off well!

twohectobooks 4.3 miles plus a soak seems like it should qualify as 5 haha 4mo
krayoncolorz @twohectobooks ha, good point! I actually ran a bit faster during the down pour! 4mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I enjoyed this book and so glad I got the Audio version! It was neat listening to the back and forth of the POV of Sadie and a news investigator/podcast type style. Murder mystery which I don‘t think I‘ve ever read. Overall I enjoyed it and it was a fast read.

britt_brooke I really liked this in print but I‘ve heard the audio is fantastic. Glad you liked it! 4mo

I was trying to think about what books inspired me. And two kept coming to my mind and both are children‘s books. Both about giving of ourselves to those we love.

Reading from a parental standpoint versus watching my children as they hear from theirs. Same story, different perspectives. Inspire all of us to do a little more for someone. 💗

wanderinglynn Love both those books! Thanks for sharing! 4mo

This week for the #BFC I read three books taking my total to 9. I was worried about my step goal due to a knee injury from karate. But after a few days rest I was able to bounce back. I haven‘t gotten my steps in yet today and already surpassed my goal.

Still need to work on making stretching a habit. My push-ups have increased as well!

Lucy_Anywhere Awesome! 🙌 Look at you hitting all your goals! 4mo

I love Abby and she‘s an amazing athlete and soccer player. The book is fine. But if you have seen her commencement speech she talks about in the book that pretty much sums up the entire book. So I was a bit disappointed. I read it start to finish waiting at a doctors appointment.

I‘m down with a knee injury which is HORRIBLE. It was hard to watch my kid run and I was sidelined, but I was still able to read. I finished “Before We Were Yours,” and also started the “Book Thief.” Thankful to spend the day reading and hoping a day or two of rest I can bounce back.

marleed Get well soon! 4mo

Unpopular opinion here but I did not love this book. I did enjoy the parts that were set in the past but didn‘t care for present day parts. I just didn‘t find it enjoyable. But I stuck it out and the ending was overall enjoyable. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

KristenDuck So interesting - I loved this one!! 4mo
krayoncolorz @KristenDuck Yeah, not sure why I didn‘t love it and it has great reviews. I‘d really zone out during the present day stuff. 🤷‍♀️ 4mo

Week 2 #bfc and I‘ve reached my book goal. So I guess I need to increase my goal. Gonna bump it up to 15 total. I‘ve got a few longer books in the queue.

A family favorite recipe is baked tofu with the recipe pictured. Was hoping to make it for the picture but it got pushed to tomorrow. We sautée peppers, onions, and add steamed broccoli. We then add an orange sauce to this and serve with brown rice. This is the best way I‘ve found to make crispy tofu.

The Help is by far my favorite audiobook thus far! Such a magical experience. I look forward to watching the movie again but the this book is enough to transport me into Mississippi.

britt_brooke It‘s such a fantastic audiobook! I read it in print years ago, but reread/listened to it last year. 💚 5mo

This was an enjoyable memoir. I didn‘t really know what to expect as I didn‘t know of Kate Bornstein before. The subtitle is what made me read it. It‘s dark and funny a little slow at times but overall enjoyed it! I also learned a little bit about Scientology and some new perspectives. ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

britt_brooke Glad you liked it. The Scientology stuff is so bizarre. I‘ve read several books about it. I have a thing for obscure religions/cults. Leah Remini grew up in Scientology and her memoir is really good: 5mo
krayoncolorz @britt_brooke Might have to check it out! I lived near Clearwater and saw all of the Scientology people coming and going. It was definitely an interesting education on the subject. (edited) 5mo

Finished What is the Bible and on to Lead from the Outside. I already enjoy it and find Stacey Abrams wisdom timely. Don‘t allow fear to hold you back from your ambition.

Also my steps for the day are on track to meet my #bfc #bfcr2 goals. Picture of my backyard where I get in most of my steps.

Lucy_Anywhere Wow! What a massive garden - I'm jealous. Well done on smashing your #BFC goals so far 🙌 5mo

#BFCr2 exercise is going well. My kid had run club today so while she ran I got my running steps in. I definitely had the munchies today and probably didn‘t handle those well. Been able to listen more than read shuffling kids to and fro.

Finished my second book which is tagged and got my steps in for the #bfc! Plan on getting my pushups in before bed. Goals met even if the movement was muddy from rain.

Spent the day reading books all day long! I finished Kamala Harris‘ “The Truths We Hold. I liked the book. It is very policy heavy and a bit scattered at times but overall I found it enjoyable. What I took away from the book is no matter the pushback she receives, whether Republican or Democrat she is going to do what she believes is best for the people.

For my #BFCr2 challenge I got my pushups in. Sundays are rest days. #ReadTheCandidates
