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!
AHHH! What a crazy week. Seriously… chicken-with-head-cut-off type of week and today (Friday) is no exception. Kids are back in school and I’m trying to keep up with everything that’s going on. I did get out and get my steps in, and my food intake was much more inline with where it should be (although I’ve got a girls-night-out tonight!)
Friday: 62 minutes walking, 11,013 steps/day
Saturday: 40 minutes walking, 15,661 steps/day
Sunday: 21 minutes walking, 11,516 steps/day
Monday: 33 minutes walking, 10,093 steps/day
Tuesday: 45 minutes walking, 10,068 steps/day
Wednesday: 61 minutes walking, 11,890 steps/day
Thursday: 55 minutes Body Flow + 51 minutes walking, 12,133 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.
I’m still collecting EXCUSES for not exercising: 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.
How was your week? Did you hit any milestones? Try a new food or workout? Celebrate your week with us!
