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.
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.)
I had a really busy week this week and found myself doing mini-walks instead of my usual longer walks. We have a very large classroom/training room at my office. I walk back and forth between the tables for about 10-15 minutes, twice per day, and can easily get about 3,000 steps or more while I’m at work. I did a decent job – even though I had two days under 10,000 steps.
Friday: two walks totaling 30 minutes, 10,032 steps/day
Saturday: no exercise, 6,759 steps/day
Sunday: no exercise, 7,502 steps/day
Monday: two walks totaling 78 minutes, 15,570 steps/day
Tuesday: three walks totaling 47 minutes, 10,566 steps/day
Wednesday: three walks totaling 55 minutes, 11,153 steps/day
Thursday: 50 minutes Body Flow + two walks totaling 81 minutes, 17,420 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.
It’s not too late!! Don’t forget to SIGN UP FOR OCTOBER! and commit to exercising for the month. Sign ups from October through December will be at That’s What I’m Talking About. And come back on Sunday to sign up for November.
