Welcome to #FitReaders!! Felicia the Geeky Blogger and I are super excited to be co-hosting this fitness-oriented group during 2015. For the months of July – September 2015, Felicia will be hosting the official check-ins. This is my weekly check-in post where I share about my week, and I hope you share about yours as well. You can also catch Felicia’s weekly check-in HERE.

If you have a weekly check-in blog post or put your updates on any social media site, please leave a link to your check-in posts in the comment section, below. Or, if you want to use this post as your weekly check-in, leave a comment telling us how your week went!

My Week:

We just had an unexpected, amazingly wonderful, vacation week. The kids and I headed to Cape Cod with cousins on Sunday morning and just got home late Thursday night, and we had such a blast. Beach. Star Gazing (meteor shower). Sand. Games. Ice Cream. Eating. I did get a few walks in, but my step count is WAY down for the week. And because I was away, I didn’t weigh in on Monday. I have a feeling that number will be up next week. No worries!

My Movement*:
Friday: 54 minutes walking, 10,400 steps/day
Saturday: 49  minutes walking, 11,880 steps/day
Sunday: no walking, 6,286 steps/day
Monday: 50 minutes walking, 10,827 steps/day
Tuesday: 51 minutes walking, 8,379 steps/day
Wednesday: 57 minutes walking, 15,883 steps/day
Thursday: no walking, 6,702 steps/day

* 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.
