Welcome to #FitReaders!! Felicia the Geeky Blogger and I are super excited to be co-hosting this fitness-oriented group during 2015.

Thanks again to everyone who participated during here at That’s What I’m Talking About during April, May and June! Remember: starting July 1, 2015, the monthly commitment signups will be at Felicia the Geeky Blogger blog, but you can still check in here and share how you are doing every Friday!
I’m STILL on VACATION!! We are finishing up the end of the second week, and my family be heading home (2 day car trip) starting Saturday. I’m happy to report that I’ve been able to mostly keep up some exercise and getting in great step counts, to including walking with my 9 year old girl (BG) in the annual Independence Day 2 mile run. I also did that 5 mile loop with the 450 stair climb in the middle again on Thursday. However, I’ve been eating WAY TOO MUCH, and actually have felt gross because of that. I am looking forward to getting back home and back to normal eating. My fitness week begins on Mondays, so I’ll report my trip weight gains next week, but I do know that I’m already up a few pounds.
Friday: 43 minutes walking, 11,593 steps/day
Saturday: 36 minutes walking, 14,090 steps/day
Sunday: 37 minutes walking, 10,288 steps/day
Monday: 71 minutes walking, 12,895 steps/day
Tuesday: 44 minutes walking, 11,863 steps/day
Wednesday: no exercise, 5,828 steps/day
Thursday: 90 minutes walking, 15,207 steps/day
* After a comment about my timed walking and the number of steps I record, I realized it might be confusing. I track two different goals. The first goal is a timed duration of exercise – moving with the intent to raise my heart rate and get in some cardiovascular work. This is what I’m mean when I say “45 minutes walking.” The second goal is total daily steps. This is from my Fitbit, which measures all steps from 12:00AM – 11:59PM, exercise included. I hope that clarifies my movement data.
