Final #BFCr3 check-in. I hit my step count 3 days this week. I did end up hitting my 4 book goal with the couple books I read this week. I didn‘t always hit all my goals the last 6 weeks, but I definitely have gotten further than where I was before

Quite a few Littens had recommended listening to this one, and I have to completely agree. I feel like this book was made to be listened to. It was so engaging, but I‘m also completely addicted to podcasts so this was right up my alley. Sadie was such a unique character and I enjoyed her so much. This was one of my most fun, engaging reads of the year. I zoomed through it

Just finished listening to the audiobook. This is between a pick and a so-so for me. Her story is incredible - I don‘t know how she lived through as many horrible things as she did. And her message to stand up and speak out - to take the steps to change Hollywood and the world was nice. There was something about the tone of the book that didn‘t always hit me the right way. It was an interesting listen but that opening song was crazy 😂

Finished this book in a #favoritereadingspot in my house. Overall, it was interesting and the characters were pretty likable. I honestly was a bit lost at the end as to what‘d happened in the incident in the past. Unique take on a ghost story but didn‘t wow me.

Not the traditional #selfhelpbook and I‘ve rec‘d this before, but it doesn‘t hurt to repeat. This book helps you hone your survival instincts - helping you tell the difference between those signals and unnecessary worry. Also provides tips for how to read people/know when they‘re trying to manipulate you. A must read

I changed up my goals from round 2 for #BFCR3 though I did keep the steps. I did adjust the walking goal down a bit because some weeks I struggled to get any walks in. So hopefully I can get closer to making these a habit. Then I added a few unplug sessions a night basically to get me off my computer and make sure I get some guaranteed reading time in 😂

So I forgot to review this book Sunday when I returned. We listened to this audiobook on the drive to the beach and finished it up on the way back. It was so good! Admittedly, I saw the previews for the movie with Milo Ventimiglia that‘s coming out but my mom vouched for how good the story was. And we were all in agreement! The narrator was great and there was something interesting about it being from the dog‘s POV

Been at Outer Banks, NC the last week and finished this book with a view of the little lake next to our beach house. Overall the book wasn‘t bad.

Listened to this at the suggestion of a Litten and it was really interesting! I didn‘t know much about Jim Henson - watched some muppets/muppet babies growing up but that was about it. He sounded like a remarkable person - we need more people in the world like him. It was a much longer audiobook than I‘d thought and the beginning was a touch slow. After that though, it was very intriguing

My daily step counts for the week. Only met my goal 3 of the days. My cold really gave me some bad days this week, which kept me from being as successful as I wanted.

Finished the first book for my #BFC challenge but it also fit the #nightorientedtitle prompt for #booked2019

Was an easy read with some real intrigue/interesting thoughts. Some of the writing felt clunky - I‘d have to reread sentences before I caught what the author was saying. The truth/reveal definitely didn‘t sit well with me, but I‘m sure that was the point. Held my attention but didn‘t love it

TheDaysGoBy @Laughterhp It‘s not so bad. Not like it‘s a glass elevator. But it‘s high enough that it‘s been messing with my ears. Now though I can finally get them to pop a bit so that should help 3mo
TheSpineView Doing so good! 3mo

Day 1 of #BFC2 didn‘t go so well - been suffering from a terrible cold and performed maid of honor duties taking my sister to her dress fitting yesterday. Day 2 though was much better. I hit my step count for the day (partially from going to the bathroom continuously to blow my nose so I didn‘t gross out my coworkers 😂). No walk at lunch but hoping to get out tomorrow

I‘m joining round 2 of the #BFC and my goals are:

Walk at least 15 mins during lunch M-F
Exercise 30 mins twice a week
8,500 steps a day

I do some of these now, but not regularly so I‘m hoping to really build a routine the next few weeks

Laughterhp Such great goals! I hope you it becomes a regular occurrence for you and not work! 3mo
