Yesterday's A For H was to get moving (ideally outdoors) - I've been doing loads of Blogilates/Yoga, so I thought I'd go on a walk too - here's a blurry photo from that😂 Today's is to thank people I'm grateful for - thank you to all of you on here for being gems!💎

I'm getting through Rebecca more slowly than I'd like so tonight I want to get to at least p100!

Blogilates was SO much fun today!! And I'm excited for the 'Nourish' yoga session later😊 Today's Action for Happiness was to say positive things to the people I meet & my conversations have been filled with loveliness which has been nice😁 Rebecca is quite different to the books I've read recently so it took a bit to get my eye in - I'm now really enjoying it though!

wanderinglynn Awesome day! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 2w

All of these challenges are proving great for my health - thanks for running guys!! Tonight I typically would've worked later than I should have done but didn't because I was excited to do more for #BFC2022 #NYWD22 and #WinterCosy 😍

I've worked out and read more of Rebecca (aiming for page 50 today)! Later I plan on a yoga session & today's Action for Happiness is to take 5 min to sit still and just breathe which I'll do afterwards😊

I didn't sleep very well last night so it's been a hard day for me, but I'm immensely proud of how I've handled that❤ Feeling a little too tired for Yoga/Blogilates I think, but I've definitely chosen to see the good in people as part of Action for Happiness & I'll be starting my first #NYWD22 book this evening, even if I only manage a few pages😊

It's looking like another day of hitting my #BFC2022 goals - I've done all of the Blogilates videos on the calendar for today (the names of the videos are hilarious to me haha), Day 3 of 'Move' (Yoga) will be done before bed & I'm determined to finish The Flatshare this eve too! I might even read it in the bath😍 That will then be my first book of 2022 & my first #BookSpinBingo square complete!

Started my morn off with 50 more pages of The Flatshare (love!) & Day 2 of 'Move' with Yoga w/ Adriene😁 The Blogilates Day 3 video comes out later today so I'm planning on an evening workout🌟 Today's Action For Happiness action is to do something kind for someone else - I'm going to do some shopping on behalf of my flat, and I'll do some more bday present planning for my partner & friend too!🌷

Action For Happiness - I did lots of kind things for myself today; some highlights being day 1 of the Yoga With Adriene 'Move' Series, a Secret Santa call with my friends & starting Emily in Paris😊

I also did a Blogilates workout😁💪 Partic proud of this bc I got up early to squeeze it in before SS & travelling back to London.

I read a couple of chapters earlier and am going to read a little more before sleep now📚

#BFC2022 update:
This morn as part of the Action for Happiness calendar, I chose 3 things I'm looking forward to this year❤ Move with Yoga w/ Adriene officially starts tomorrow, so I did the Blogilates Flexibility Fix today instead! This afternoon, I'm going to keep reading The Flatshare - I'm going to use it for one of my free #BookSpinBingo Board spaces😁

Aug-Dec!😁 #12booksof2021 @Andrew65

Purple Prose I got from my first ever visit to Gay's The Word; Crazy Rich Asians was a really fun summer read; Pumpkinheads was my first ever graphic novel (and it has a bi character in it!!); The Lonely City was one of the most well written books I've ever read; Mansfield Park = my current fave Jane Austen; and for December I chose the Christmas short stories I read to commemorate the #WinterGames2021! 😁

Andrew65 Some popular choices. 3w
Moll @Andrew65 and for good reason!😁🙌 3w
Andrew65 @Moll True! 3w
tokorowilliamwallace Yay, someone else knows about The Lonely City! Such superb observation and thought and characterization so far. Have you read anything by the author tagged. Her style of articulation and observation reminds me of the American Studies and study in the various subjects from this book. 3w
Moll @tokorowilliamwallace They do indeed - I loved it!! Definitely going to read more by Laing I think😁 Which author are you referring to sorry (Laing, Harrad or Trachtenberg)? 3w

Late to the party here but here is Jan-July!! (Aug-Dec coming tomorrow) #12booksof2021 @Andrew65

With The Fire on High was the hug I really needed at the start of this year; The Darkest Part of the Forest was from @Emilymdxn (aka my superstar Book Consultant); and I've read some Jane Austen for the first time this year too and LOVED having it as my little project! Just Persuasion left there for 2022😁

Reading goals: Read Rebecca for #NYWD22 and tick off as many squares as I can for #BookSpinBingo! These are also my Jan goals for the #WinterCosy Readathon😊

Fitness goals: Follow the Blogilates, Yoga with Adriene and Action for Happiness calendars - ideally everything on them for all the days but I'm going to be flexible here!

Will post progress on here as I go😁

Mehso-so

Less of a so-so and more of an I have no idea! I definitely have a love hate relationship with this one, a marmite kinda book😂 The prose is an absolute pick but I found myself finding the book really entertaining and wonderful at points...and at other points just really annoying😂

'Third Night' read & I'm still loving the prose; I'm hoping the plot might pick up a bit more so soon though because it's slightly lacking for me atm

Moll I think I've changed my mind; once again the prose has sucked me in and I'm liking the slow pacing. I'm finding myself having all the same feelings towards Clara that the main guy (can't for the life of me remember his name, or if I've been told it😂) is 1mo

THIS week I've finished A Month In the Country/got roughly half way through Eight White Nights & watched Love Hard, so have crossed off lots of Bingo Board squares👏 Also took part in the #FestivePhotoChallenge, entered another xmas tree & found lots of word search words!!

I'm so excited to be off work for a couple weeks so I can just chill out and read LOTS😍🌲

That's the 'Second Night' read and I must say I'm starting to love this - the things that were annoying me about the 2 main characters have become entertaining & endearing. I love the connection they're starting to form too and how that's playing out. The prose remains to be really beautiful

Okay I've finished reading about 'the first night' & am now about 100 pages in...and I have to say this has massively grown on me! The main guy is still incredibly dramatic lol and Clara remains to be quite pretentious and annoying...but the prose has me completely sucked in! Plus I'm finding LOADS of words for the #WGWordSearch haha

#WinterGames2021 #TeamGameSleighers

blurb
Moll

I'm reading Eight White Nights today and hoping to finish it in the next couple! So far the prose is rich but it's being used to describe the inner monologue of the most dramatic guy in the world😂 We've just had about 3 pages of him having a mare bc he ate something spicy and the girl he likes saw his reaction😂 Said girl also thinks she's Too Cool For School and I'm not entirely sure what he's seeing in her
