Oh for a book and a shady nook... - John Wilson. https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/10960285-tanya-d

tdrosebud

So check in for week 1 of #bookfitnesschallenge #bfc. I managed my goals though in a poor manner. While I did walk 30 min/3 times, it was slow. Apparently taking my dog with me was a mistake. Calisthenics went ok, the first day was good, the other times was sporadic when I could fit them in. I have mastered squats while brushing my teeth. I can see where I need to improve and hope for better this week. @wanderinglynn

wanderinglynn Way to go! 🙌🏻 great first week! 1w

VanChocStrawberry Even walking slow is still walking, and your dog‘s gotta walk, too! 1w

A Wrinkle in Time | Madeleine L'Engle

It's the first day of the #bookfitnesschallenge! I've started with basic calisthenics, listening to the tagged book.
2 sets of 15 for the following:
pushups
crunches
oblique crunches
leg abductions
leg abbductions
squats
Also did 2 15 sec planks, hopefully I'll be able to hold it longer by the end of this challenge

Clwojick Way to go! Great start ❤ 2w
BarbaraJean Great job! And this is a wonderful book for audio—are you listening to the one narrated by Jennifer Ehle? 2w

Caterina Great start! Planks are tough, but I've found that if I do them every day consistently, I build up time pretty quickly! I'm sure you will too! 👍 When I did a single plank for as long as I could every day for four months, I went from 30 seconds to 5 minutes! 2w

tdrosebud @kaye I've done afghans, scarves, and stuffed things the most. Afghans are probably my fave. I haven't had the focus to do many things lately, but I'm starting to get better. I haven't posted anything on here, but I'm going to give audiocrocheting a shot. I'd like to start making things for my swap packages. 2mo
