#BFC wk 2 I finished my first book but I didn‘t go to pilates as I was away at a Professional Development course in reading and working memory which was fantastic. Afterwards I went to the op shop not far from the school & got all of these goodies for under $20. This wk I went over my minimum of yoga and stretching sessions, I kept my wine drinking in check & went for my walk so I‘m definitely on the up. I commented on 10 individual posts. 42 +10=

My motivation for my #BookFitnessChallenge is myself. I‘ve always loved exercise endorphins & seem to have a need to exercise everyday or I go a bit nuts. I turn 40 next year so I want to look and feel fantastic at my big bonfire birthday party & to grow old disgracefully. This picture was taken in 2014 on a pole dancing cruise around the Pacific Islands that I went on with my precious girlfriends. I want to do one to America soon. @wanderinglynn

Well on my way to meeting my goals for #BFC this week. I‘ve gone to yin yoga twice already plus gone for my walk while listening to my audio book at the same time. I walked to the little free library up the hill and picked up the tagged book. This picture is of the park I walk through on the way back down. It‘s my favourite. The sunsets and sunrises have been gorgeous lately. Yay for me!

#BFC #wk1 It‘s Thurs in Oz & I don‘t think there will be anymore exercise to be done tonight so am updating you now @wanderinglynn I‘m happy with my alcohol intake this wk. Only 1 blowout in the first week is pretty good me thinks. I didn‘t have any added sugar. I stretched for 2 hrs. I commented on the posts of others 18 xs. No books finished this wk but have started an audio and a hard copy. I posted about the #BFC x2. I have a total of 42 pts.

LapReader I didn‘t get to pilates this week. I tried but my class was booked out so I have now booked a few weeks in advance so that doesn‘t happen again. I read books while stretching and audiobooks while walking everywhere as I don‘t have a car or license. I also went on an extra 30 minute walk above what I usually would do. Picture taken of the obelisk at sunset tonight up the hill from my place while I was out walking. (edited) 1w

Latest scores from my building‘s book exchange. I heard Meg Wolitzer speak at the Sydney Writer‘s Festival so I am looking forward to her one. There must be at least one other avid reader in my building as the other book is an ARC of a book I wanted. I love the cover. Of course the author is a dancer who teaches adults ballet so now I am following her on Litsy. It‘s the first book I‘ve opened that mentions Litsy. Woo hoo!

Happy Mother‘s Day fellow mothers. At a reasonable hour our bedroom door slid shut and a note that said ‘Do not exit this room‘ was left behind. No problem kids. I‘m happy to stay in bed reading while you get all my gifts ready and your father gets me a cup of tea and makes me Swedish pancakes. They took me on a picnic to Stanley Park which is a gorgeous old homestead up the road. #iwokeuplikethis #lmpbc #Groupx @thegreensofa @Sarz @BecH @suvata

I was super impressed by Adélaïde. Despite English being her 2nd language she was the most entertaining speaker at the Syd Writer‘s Fest. I saw her x2. Once she spoke on witches & embracing female power & her second talk was on her traumatic childhood. She even dealt with a heckler in the audience with grace. I can‘t wait to read her book that she signed for me. @Miss__astrid & I spotted her numerous xs over the weekend enjoying the fest herself.

A weekend without the kids meant a late Sunday breakfast of bacon & eggs followed by hrs laying on the beach reading. The water temp was perfect. Afterwards we shared a bottle of wine with caramelised onion and mushroom risotto that my partner Stew said was in the top 3 meals I‘ve ever cooked for him, an arvo sleep then a harp performance in the bar below my apartment. A wonderful weekend. I live for holidays. I started this on audio but switched.

Today was a better day. I‘m back into #LitsyWalkers again. I walked to the Little Free Library and I picked up the tagged book & a couple of self help ones as I‘m in a bit of a rut at the moment. I made the discovery today that I can gift books on Audible so if anyone wants Where the Crawdads Sing let me know. Also had a score at my building‘s book exchange this morning. I got a bag of books which nearly caused me to miss my tram. #green

Kaye Neat picture ..good for you for walking again. I hope the books are some you‘ll enjoy. 3mo
BookNAround I loved this book. It‘s lovely. 3mo

Thankyou @TheWordJar for my lovely #justabookswap package. I just finished writing on the 1st gmorning page as I intend to treat it like a diary & I‘m enjoying the other interesting book in bed with a cup of tea. It looks like it‘s going to be a great beach day here & my cousin and his girlfriend are visiting so lots of cooking. Last night I made them curried sausages & quinoa with naan. He had 2 helpings! For breaky I‘m thinking beans & eggs.

TheWordJar So glad they made it! I love the idea of using g‘morning as a diary. I‘m really tempted to use it as a coloring book as I‘ve seen others do. Your curried sausage and quinoa sounds delicious! And I love your delightful quilt! 😍 happy reading! 3mo
LapReader Thanks @TheWordJar Mum makes my quilts. I will steal your colour idea xo 3mo
TheBookKeepers Yay!!!! 3mo

Any Aussies up for a round? It will be my third time. I have loved having my comfort zone expanded. My favourite read of last year was read because of this Book Club.

CarolynM I'm not sure how much time I'm going to have in the next few months, so I think I'm going to sit this round out. 3mo

#LitsyWalkers today I had a transfer of duty travel training one of my English as a Second Language students so bonus walking time to get to the bus stop to meet him. This one is an Australian native flower I was lucky enough to see on my walk for @kaye bingo.

Kaye Very pretty ! Good job on the walk. 🌷 3mo

On to my second #LitsyWalkers audio book. The narrator Caroline Lee is usually good but sounds exceptionally nasally this time. Maybe it‘s because the last audio book had such great voices for most of the stories. Using this picture for red in your bingo @kaye

Kaye Beautiful. Thanks Allissa , and good job 3mo

#LitsyWalkers A gorgeous Sunday evening walk after yin yoga class to work off the bottle of wine I helped to drink at lunch. This is a bizarre audio book but I enjoy it.

Kaye Gorgeous ! You‘re so lucky to have so many beautiful views. 4mo

Tonight I am attending a talk by Nigella Lawson at my local theatre. I‘m very excited. I love her food, body positivity and the fact that she has midnight feasts.

CarolynM What was it like? 4mo

This is the creek I walk along on the way to school everyday. I only get under 10 minutes of audio walking in provided I don‘t get interrupted by all the elderly people that walk the same track. #LitsyWalkers @kaye (Happy birthday) @DarcysMom

Kaye Pretty scenery. Thanks for the birthday wishes. 💖 4mo

My pilates class was cancelled this afternoon so I went for a walk up to Shepherd‘s Hill and listened to another average story in this tagged book. It was a bit depressing but I could just be in a mood. Some good one liners though #Litsywalkers @kaye @DarcysMom

DarcysMom What is that building? It is a little menacing. 4mo

Not loving it so far. Bit too clunky. Back at school today so a drink is in order. I live for holidays. 73 days until the next one. @suvata @CarolynM @thegreensofa @Sarz @BecH #LMPBC #GroupX

The 3rd story in this audio book is the worst so far but still interesting to hear what the female author thinks goes on inside the brain of a middle age man. Today I‘m excited to step back in time and listen to Double J an Australian alternative radio station replay the Hottest 100 of 1998. The year I left high school! It‘s my last day of school holidays before I go back to teach Special Education at High School. I plan to pack a lot into my day.

MrsMalaprop I really like Tremain but haven‘t read her for years. Enjoy your last day of hols with the Hottest 100 1998 😁. That was the year I bought my first house - loved my Hottest 100s too. I‘m back to work in education (as a school psych) next week too. 😏 4mo
LapReader Can you recommend any other Tremains @MrsMalaprop ? Good luck next week. 4mo
