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.)
Not much to report this week. I’ve been participating in several challenges, which have encouraged me to get in more steps, even though I joke that I’ll never win one. I’ve been keeping up a good routine of both mini and long walks, while trying to be conscientious of my eating habits.
One not so great thing happen this week on my walk – I was bit by a dog!! I was in the road, and she came off her property and bit me in the calf. I’m fine – she broke the skin, but through my pants, and the dog’s shots are all current (as are mine!). I’ll have a bruise, and it’s a little sore, but I’m more upset that this happened in my own neighborhood – what if it had been one of the dozen kids that play in the area? What if it had been the elderly woman with Parkinson’s that walks her dog every day? I haven’t been back out in the area since it happened, but I will either later today or over the weekend. I’m a bit worried about it, but not enough that it will stop me from going out.

* 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 NOVEMBER! and commit to exercising for the month. Sign ups from October through December will be at That’s What I’m Talking About.
