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.

One week into August, and I’m doing okay. When I weighed in at the beginning of the week, I was up a pound, but when I weighed in today, I was down a pound. I have been a bit more conscientious in my food/beverage choices, and while not perfect, I’ve been better this week. My daily exercise routine has stayed pretty much the same, which is good for now. I’ve noticed some aches and pains in my legs and hips… getting older sucks sometimes. I’m also adjusting to my blood pressure meds, which leave my lower legs feeling a little swollen. However, all-in-all, I’ve had a pretty good week.
Friday: 30 minutes walking, 10,772 steps/day
Saturday: 35 minutes walking, 10,231 steps/day
Sunday: 58 minutes walking, 14,197 steps/day
Monday: 45 + 36 minutes walking, 12,319 steps/day
Tuesday: 62 minutes walking, 10,631 steps/day
Wednesday: 43 minutes walking, 11,568 steps/day
Thursday: 53 minutes BodyFlow, 57 minutes walking, 12,001 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.
