#FitReaders Check-In: October 30, 2015


Sign up for OCTOBER!

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.)

My Week:

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.

The view from my office 2nd floor training center. I may be walking inside, but I have a nice view!

My Movement*:
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.

  1. Looks like you still had a great view.

    Wow, that is a pretty view!! I love this time of year when everything is so pretty out.

    Great job on steps! At least you’re walking, regardless where it is!

    I had a crap week. Recovering from bronchitis put me out of the game for a whole week – first time in a LONG time I didn’t get my steps in every day. Bummed me out, but this morning I woke up feeling better and got my first run in over a week. That made me really happy!

    Hey, you got the tree picture to work. 🙂 I have had a busy month, today is my day to catch up.

  4. You did famously, and great idea for getting in a bit of exercise at work. I was happy with my week and ready now for November!

    Doing 2 mini-walks have been my saving grace many a times…glad to see they are working out for you, too! My week was crazy, but hoping all that craziness is behind me now that I’ve left my job.

    well done Jen, steps are steps right, it beats not moving. Gorgeous colours in the trees.
    I just hit my target this week but it was hard work.
