The Royals are here all weekend and I am unplugged until Tuesday. Yay for three-day weekends. With the current Covid-19 pandemic we have not taken a vacation, so I am looking forward to stepping away from the computer. I bought a Fitbit this week as I was feeling like a sluggish sloth. I knew it would motivate me, and it did. Do you have one? – Stay Caffeinated.

I have a fitbit. I’m not getting in as many steps now, due to staying in amid the pandemic, but I’ve been trying to go out every other day at least for walks of this circuit that I’ve worked out for myself. I am doing a trial of fitbit premium as well right now, and I do like the additional challenges, so I may continue on and pay for it.
I hope you enjoyed your unplugged time. 🙂
I have a fitbit but it doesn’t stop me eating but I do love it.
I don’t have a fitbit but my mum does and she pushes us to keep walking more often than not, so we join her and that makes me happy! I hope you enjoy your three day weekend and getting a computer break.

I hope you had a great 3-day weekend. I had actually just got myself a whoop to help track my sleep and how my aging body recovers with heavy activity. I hope you enjoy your fitbit!
I’ve been seeing The Roommate around the blogosphere and love the sound of it! I hope you enjoy it! I’ll be looking for your review. 🙂
Also, YAY FOR BEING UNPLUGGED! I’ve been doing it more often myself. <3
Lindsi @ Do You Dog-ear? ?
i don’t have a fitbit but a Miband, and a third party app that tracks some cool data for my training. At the moment i am not going to the gym so not getting as much benefit as i used to =(
Maureen @ Maureen's Books
Good for you taking some time off.
I always wanted a Fitbit.. But there are so many things I’d like to get. But since I’m currently trying to life a little more healthy, it might be a good time to get myself one.
Have a great week Kimberly. Happy reading.
Some interesting new things to read. I loved the Mihalik one. Happy reading!
Happy Sunday 🙂 The Roommate sounds like a fun read.
Laura @ Library of Clean Reads
The Book of Lost Names caught my attention. I hope you get to go out more often with your Fitbit. Enjoy your time off!
Enjoy your unplugged time.
I love my fitbit but sometimes it shows how little walking I’m doing. :-(.
The Book of Lost Names looks good to me.
Have a good week.
Ooh, i need to check out some of those books they look really cool!! 🙂
Crystal @ Lost in Storyland
It’s great that the Fitbit is helping. I don’t have one, but I have a dog! I love the cover to Chaos Reigning.
Zumba and gardening are my motivation to stay active 🙂
and all those books sound so good.. I think I have the Book of Lost Names on my list as well..
I’m definitely on the sluggish side as well and need to get some kind of regular activity in my daily schedule of I’m just going to turn to jello! I hope you have a great week!
Enjoy the kiddies and happy stepping with your Fitbit buddy.
I love my fitbit, it keeps me moving throughout the day. I will be watching for your review on The Book of Names.
I’m so glad you are able to spend some time with the royals this weekend! I actually updated my fitbit to an Apple Watch a couple years ago, and I absolutely love it. It reminds me to stand each hour and pushes me to maintain my exercise goals, even when I’m not in the mood lol. It is turning out to be a rainy weekend here, so I’ll probably do a bit more reading and housework than I was initially planning. Enjoy the long weekend!
My Fitbit definitely makes me feel more accountable – I’m scared to think how few steps I would get without it!
lots of books to check out….The Book of Lost Names sound like
it will be good..have a great day!
Enjoy your 3 day weekend! Unplugging is sometimes exactly what we need.
Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction
Enjoy your time with the Royals!!
Shelleyrae @ Book’d Out
Enjoy your break!
Wishing you a great reading week
Anne - Books of My Heart
I hope you have a great weekend and week ahead. Unplugging is not a bad idea on a holiday weekend. I had the simplest Fitbit which I liked except it didn’t work well with the Harley. I hope it is awesome for you
Enjoy your time with the Royals!! I have an apple watch and it does make me more aware-especially when I have been sitting too long!
Yes, I have bought an Apple Watch during this pandemic and I want to match my goals. However, I get there much and much easier when I’m working at the office as I can’t do outside sports really with my visual impairment. I can’t wait for the gyms to re-open honestly! I really hope that will be much earlier than September 1, as it’s scheduled for that date.
Have fun with the Royals. I was able to see all but 1 of the Grands this past week and the time was priceless.
Have fun with the fitbit and the kids.
Enjoy your weekend with the Royals! I have a Fitbit. Mine is a Versa2. I still haven’t been getting my steps or exercising in because of the pandemic but I need to figure something out. I need my exercise! Hope you have a great holiday weekend and a great week! Stay safe!

Enjoy your time with your grandchildren! I miss mine so much, but I don’t want to be around them until I get over this cough completely.
Suzanne @ The Bookish Libra
Enjoy your long weekend! I have a fitbit too and I really like it. I like that it reminds me to get up every hour, especially while I’m working and I do find that when I make my step goal one day, it motivates me to try for it again the next day, etc. I like the challenges too since they post the rankings throughout the week as the challenge progresses. The shame of being at the bottom of the list helps me to step it up a bit, lol.
I hope you have a great weekend! I plan to listen to Chaos Reigning soon as I really enjoyed the first 2 books. Have a great week!
What’s a Fitbit Kimberly???? Maybe I could use one too LOL Enjoy your long weekend! And I am curious about what you thought of The Prisoner’s Wife!
Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer
The Book of Lost Names looks like an enjoyable read.
I literally popped in to link up and say hi. Enjoy the weekend!
A Voracious Reader
Yay for a Royal weekend! We welcomed grandbaby #3 last night. Well, welcomed from a distance. Not sure when we’ll get to see him. *sigh* I got a Fitbit for Christmas 2018. It motivates me a bit. Not as much as it should. LOL I hope you have a great week, Kim!
Lark @ The Bookwyrm's Hoard
Enjoy your long, unplugged weekend! I’m working, trying to catch up on a project I’m behind on.
I don’t have a Fitbit, but I’ve thought about it. Maybe you could review yours in a month or two, and let us know how you like it and whether it’s working?
Lover of Romance
Its always such fun to unplug, I live out west so the national parks have opened up here so probably going to take a picnic with the family up the mountains. But mostly just relaxing for the weekend. Hope you get some renewal this three day weekend.
Jennifer | Book Den
Happy 3 day weekend!! We are staying home as well. I hope you enjoy your time unplugged. Also, enjoy your fitbit. I find data to be highly motivating. 🙂
Have a lovely holiday weekend, Kimberly. I need to buy a fitbit. I’m curious how much I walk each shift at work. Or should I say run as it is so busy. LOL
It would be so nice to go somewhere…or see different people. LOL Enjoy your time away from the computer with the Royals and I hope you have fab weather.
It’s been ages since I went anywhere besides a quick trip to the grocery store at least for the last 10 weeks. That’s awesome that you have the time to spend with your family. I do love my Fitbit but haven’t been wearing it much due to we are still in shelter in place in California. I hope you enjoy the weekend.
Enjoy the long weekend and the FitBit. I loved Brave Girl, Quiet Girl !
Enjoy your weekend with the Royals! I have a Fitbit – have had one for years. It’s definitely motivating especially when you get into challenges with people. Send me a friend request – I’m Berls. Have a great week and stay safe!
Erin @ Cracker Crumb Life
OO The Glamourist!! I am so excited to read that one. I pre-ordered it a hundred years ago and can’t wait to get it.
It seems like everyone is thinking about getting some sort of physical movement back into their lives, myself included! Have a good one with your family!
Jessica @ a GREAT read
Yeah, I haven’t had a vacation in ages it feels like. I wish things could get back to normal so vacations can be normal again. I want a break from it all, but I can’t always escape all the things I have to do on a daily basis these days. Yay for the Fitbit. I know people have liked having those! Hope you enjoy yours!
And yay for new reads! Some new to me ones! I still need pick up Mihalik’s books! Sadly, haven’t seen the newest one on sale yet, so I continue to wait! Lol. Hope you enjoy them all!
Here’s my StS
Have a GREAT day!

Tanya @ Girl Plus Books
Hope you’re enjoyed the staycation being unplugged, Kimberly. 🙂 I’ve been considering a Fitbit for months now… I should probably just bite the bullet and go for it.
I don’t have a Fitbit but have been thinking about getting one. Have fun with the kiddos! Happy reading!
How lovely to spend so much quality time with your grandchildren! I hope you have a wonderful time together, Kimberly…
Kimberly, I hope you enjoy your long weekend and all that extra time to read and be with your family. ?
Nope, no Fitbit. I am not the kind of girl who needs that to go outside for a run or walk *smile* But enjoy your new item and have a great Memorial Day weekend! Stay safe and well.
It’s my first Sunday Post! This meme sounds very exciting!
Happy 3-day weekend 🙂
Tressa @ Wishful Endings
We’ve been unplugged mostly today and I plan to continue that this weekend. I have a running watch that counts steps and stuff that I use, and I think they help. Enjoy your long weekend!
Linda @ (un)Conventional Bookworms
I’m glad you’ll get to be unplugged and just enjoy the royals, Kim!
I had a fitbit, but I’ve traded it in for a garmin watch instead. Not sure which I prefer – the fitbit was better at picking up different workouts. Both are good to register my sleep…
Have a wonderful week ahead and happy reading. Elbow hugs!
Stay safe and healthy 🙂
Angelique @ Why I Can't Stop Reading
I really love the cover for The Glamourist. It’s so eye catching. I hope you enjoy it 🙂
I’ve had a Fitbit for a few years now, and it does motivate me to move, too. My ankle is what’s been holding me back. It’s a lot better than before but still aches if I’m on it a lot.
I’m looking forward to Chaos Reigning. Just have to make room in my schedule to read it. 🙂
Hope this weekend is better! Have fun!
I hope you have a relaxing weekend, and stay safe.
You have some appealing books on your stacks. Enjoy!
Hey Kimba!! Have a great long weekend, and enjoy the company! 🙂
I need to get Chaos reigning (and the second one- I’ve only read the first).
