Much better week. Met my walking goal 5 days & met the average goal for the week.
Went for a 2 hour walk today and did Pilates 4 days for a total of 1 hour, so nearly met the weekly goal.
Finished The Broken Earth Trilogy.
Thanks @wanderinglynn this has been so good to get me moving.

Week 2 #BFCr2 check-in.

After having sick kids all week, I'm happy I met my step goal 3 times and finished 2 books.

I'm giving myself a pass for no other exercise this week, as my energy was spent looking after my kids.

I've started week 3 on a good note though and went on the treadmill for an hour today.

Week one check in of #BookFitnessChallenge

I met my step goal 3 out of 7 days
Pilates 2 x & no bike ride
Met my goal of 1 book

I may need to revise my goals to something more achievable. Maybe I aimed too high 🤔

Im kinda out of shape & need smaller gradual changes

So not sure if ok but I think I'll revise to 6000 step, 10 min pilates 3 x a week & bike ride (weather permit as it's middle of winter here at the mo)

#BFCr2 #BFC @wanderinglynn

Megabooks Sounds good and healthy! 3w
wanderinglynn A great first week! 🙌 And definitely adapt your goals as you need. We will ALL cross the finish line together. Sometimes it just takes a week to figure out what really works for us. And when life happens, that's another reason to adapt your goal. 3w

I haven't met my step goals for the last couple days, but today exceeded it by 2500, so I'm happy. I also didn't meet my 10 minutes a day of pilates, but finally started today. My aim is to make up for it over the week.

Whilst I have been absent from Litsy I have been continuing with my reading of The Wheel of Time books. It's going fairly slowly, but I'm enjoying them. I think it will probably take me the rest of the year to get through them all.

Hello? | Liza Wiemer

Hi everyone, I've been very absent from Litsy for the last 3 months. I had a bit of a rough time of it personally in my life with family, work & my anxiety kicked in.
I didn't want to engage much with people & I tend to distance myself from people when I'm in that place.
I've been working on me & I'm in a really good place right now & so I'm ready to re-engage with this lovely community again though.
So say Hi and let me know who's around 😊

I read this for my IRL book club. There will be some good discussion points I think. I was pretty sure I knew who the killer was about two thirds of the way though, but it was still enjoyable nonetheless.

I've been in a bit of a reading slump lately and this I think has pulled me out of it.

A slow reading month this month.

Favourite was Rat Queens.

I liked Binti but also thought it was a bit underwhelming. I think the hype gave me too high expectations.

Always love Saga, but it wasn't the best volume I've read from the series.

The Keeping Place is a re-read, but audio this time.

Continuing on with Wheel of Time, almost finished the fourth book in series, but didn't quite make it to this month's stats.
