Feeling like fall on this cozy Sunday morning. Finally got a good night‘s sleep in my own bed after house sitting for the past week. Lit a fall candle and listening to the rain fall outside while I sip on coffee, eat some scones, and dive into this week‘s chapters of The Lost Queen. Happy Sunday Littens 💜

One of my favorite “coffee table” books I own is “Letters of Note”, a compilation of various letters of correspondence including a letter from Queen Elizabeth II to president Eisenhower including her scone recipe. But one of the letters that‘s always fascinated me is this one written by someone claiming to be Jack the Ripper

Whole30, and subsequently Food Freedom Forever, are the two #selfhelp books I credit for freeing me of my restrictive ways. The ways I thought I had no choice but to live in in order to be healthy and in shape. I‘d be running on that 1200 calorie, cardio bunny loop endlessly if it weren‘t for these two books and for that I‘m forever grateful

Mehso-so

I‘m not sure what it is. Maybe the fact that I loved Milk and Honey so much made me expect too much out of this one. But something about this one just didn‘t totally do it for me. There were a number of poems that made me feel all the feels. But if I hadn‘t needed to finish this to complete a readathon, I‘m not sure I ever would have.

The Gemma Doyle trilogy continues with even more intrigue, magic and mystery. Gemma is navigating her abilities outside of school and with even more challenges than before. In addition to her magic, she now has to grapple with family problems and, as most teenagers do, love problems. On top of all of that, the question of who to trust becomes the center of it all. The second one leaves you eager for the final installment

Week 3 #BFCr2 Check-in:
-Average sleep up by 25 mins from last week
-more consistency with morning routine, still room for improvement on nightly routine
-steps were decent, work was abnormally busy so I should be able to improve
-worked out 4x this week
-meal prep still on point

An uneven week in some areas but still happy overall and always more room for improvement

#BFCr2 week 2 check-in! Getting real and open here with y‘all: I did not do great at fitness and reading goals this week. But I had a big win, for me at least. I‘m heavier than I‘ve ever been. As someone who spent 9 years as a soccer and track athlete, to say I‘m uncomfortable in this body is an understatement. My fiancé and I had engagement pictures and I was dreading clothes shopping for it, let alone being in front of a camera. *Cont. below*

RvnclawWhovian I‘ve managed to avoid buying new clothes because I work from home and basically live in leggings and loose tops. Buying larger clothes meant I had to accept my current reality. But something crazy happened. Instead of feeling worse, wearing something that fit me and flattered my current body made me feel more confident. 3mo
RvnclawWhovian We got a few sneak peeks from our photographer and I feel like my newfound confidence from accepting my body really show through. That, and love of course 😊 3mo

Switching up my morning routine a little. I usually read whatever book I‘m currently reading, but I‘m going to start reading more non-fiction in the morning. Think self-help, biographical, educational, just something different. This one has been on my TBR for quite a while and it‘s a chunker. I just feel like post yoga while sipping coffee is the perfect time for some non-fiction 😊 What are some of your morning routines? Do they involve reading?

jb72 I have no morning routine (really no routines at all). At some point feed all the animals, but that‘s about it. Plus I don‘t drink coffee which I think sets up a lot for routine. I do love nonfiction books. I read at least one a month. 4mo
LibrarianJen During working months I have a routine to get me and the kids out the door on time to go to our respective schools (daycare, elementary and I teach high school). This summer my routine seems to be coffee, breakfast, Litsy and something relaxing until 8:30, then I do yard work until about 9:30. Then I have pilates at 10 and alternate that with swimming. Then it‘s writing and catering to the kids. Most of my reading is in the evening. 4mo

Avanders 😂 oh man, I would *love* time to read in the morning!!

@MrBook wanted to see our #litsyneighborhoods.

From Seattle to Tacoma, Mt Rainier is looming in the background everywhere on a clear day.

The Queen of the Tearling | Erika Johansen

I tried to read this a few years ago and couldn‘t get into it. This time, however, I enjoyed it much more! The story follows Kelsea on her journey to take her rightful place as the Queen of the Tearling. But people, including her own uncle, have a vested interest in not letting her rule and will stop at nothing to make sure she never makes it to the throne. I definitely enjoyed it enough to want to read the sequel

Scochrane26 I like this series, but it‘s very different than I thought it would be after the 1st book. 5mo

In the background, you can see paint swatches that have been on the wall for a month and a vacuum I brought out 3 hours ago but haven‘t turned on. What you can‘t see, and why I‘ve been quiet, is that my mental health was starting to decline. But instead of ignoring it and expecting it to fix itself like last time, I decided to be proactive. Part of that was a social media break. But I‘m happy to be back with my Litsy fam and feeling better💜

RvnclawWhovian @JacqMac thank you, glad to be back! Definitely not, but it‘s a learning process 5mo
RvnclawWhovian @Trashcanman oh my goodness, you‘re too kind 😭 I just learned that last time, when I was in denial and tried to pretend it wasn‘t happening, that made it WAY worse! It always makes me feel better when I see people speaking openly about their struggles. Maybe, hopefully, I might be helping someone feel less alone or stigmatized 5mo
RvnclawWhovian @marleed thank you! It‘s definitely a trial end error learning process 5mo

Few things can get me out of bed at 5 am on a Saturday. A good, long hike with great friends is one of those things. Skookum Flats were beautiful this morning! And we followed it by devouring Mexican food 😂🤤 If you live somewhere where, like us in the PNW, you are experiencing unseasonably beautiful weather, I hope you get out there and take advantage of it. Happy Saturday Littens!!

MoonWitch94 Beautiful 5mo
RainyDayReading I had no idea you were here in the PNW! It has been quite beautiful hasn‘t it? I‘ve been woefully unprepared for this weather haha. 5mo
RvnclawWhovian @RainyDayReading yes! There‘s a few Littens around here actually! As a native Californian I‘m loving every second of this weather 5mo
RvnclawWhovian @MoonWitch94 the pictures truly don‘t do it justice 5mo
