Welcome to #FitReaders!! Felicia the Geeky Blogger and I are super excited to be co-hosting this fitness-oriented group during 2015. For the rest of 2015 (October – December), I 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! (I only use the linky on the monthly commitment posts, for the weekly posts, I use the comments.)
What a weekend! From Friday afternoon until Monday evening, I was go-go-go and having fun! We had about 50 family members in town for my brother-in-law’s wedding on Sunday – all those steps on Sunday were from dancing! I knew this weekend was going to be busy, so I made sure to get my walks in earlier during each day, so it wouldn’t get too late after all the fun activities. For example, on Friday (I took the day off for wedding stuff), I had to run errands at the mall. While I was there, I walked the entire mall for 30 minutes just to make sure I got in my exercise that day. It was well worth it. Sure, I ate A LOT of extra food this week, but I feel great about how much I accomplished.
Friday: 35 minutes walking, 11,524 steps/day
Saturday: 33 minutes walking, 12,788 steps/day
Sunday: 35 minutes walking, 18,995 steps/day
Monday: 46 minutes walking, 10,298 steps/day
Tuesday: 32 minutes walking, 12,063 steps/day
Wednesday: 40 minutes walking, 11,132 steps/day
Thursday: 55 minutes Body Flow + 44 minutes walking, 12,051 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.
