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 was decent. I’m kind of in a holding pattern. A week ago, I only had 4,088 steps all day – my lowest since I’ve been tracking, but the rest of the week was pretty good. And while I ate a lot over the weekend (anniversary dinner out and a many-hours, catered baby shower), I did a pretty good job Monday-Wednesday, but too much again on Thursday. We’ll see how things go once the kids go back to school (next week) and I go back to work (after Labor Day).
Excuses… we all make them. What are the ones you use most often? I thought maybe I’d try and address some of the more common “reasons why I don’t exercise” over the next month, but I need your help… tell me what your excuses are in the comments.
Friday: no exercise, 4,088 steps/day
Saturday: 53 minutes walking, 10,139 steps/day
Sunday: 43 minutes walking, 10,741 steps/day
Monday: 47 minutes walking, 11,678 steps/day
Tuesday: 35 minutes walking, 12,703 steps/day

Thursday: 51 minutes Body Flow + 67 minutes walking, 12,104 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.
