#FitReaders #ThanksgivingWalk #StrutMyStuff


Calling all #FitReaders and anyone who wants to join in the fun – even those living outside the U.S. Felicia and I are planning a special GET UP AND MOVE event for Thanksgiving Day (November 26, 2015). Join us and your fellow #FitReaders by getting up, getting out, and moving (walk, stroll, run, etc.)

FitReaders Thanksgiving 2

No matter where you live or whether or not you celebrate Thanksgiving, the idea is to get in your steps on this traditionally slow-moving, food-filled U.S. Holiday. SO… here’s how to participate:

  1. Get in your exercise – it doesn’t matter how big or small, just do it! Either while you are exercising, or after, tweet about it using the hashtags #ThanksgivingWalk #StrutMyStuff #FitReader and/or #NovemberWalk
  2. Check in here, using the comment section. Leave your name and what you did for your #ThanksgivingWalk.
  3. Once you have completed your walk (or other exercise), you can download this awesome badge and display it with pride (if you would like me to send you the media file, please let me know).

November Walk

Thank you to Felicia for designing these AWESOME badges!!

Felicia and I hope each of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving. And to all the #FitReaders – be sure to check back on Friday for the weekly Check-In post!

Gobble Gobble!!


  • I’m in!!!! 🙂 I am aiming for 5k in the morning so I can gobble up Mexican Food!

    • I am hoping for one hour. That’s a whole hour of uninterrupted book listening time!!

  • Well, doing my usual Thursday stuff tomorrow ;). let’s see if I can get in an extra walk between finishing my book (super important) and grocery shopping (super boring)

    • Sounds like a plan!

      • Ohh pooh, no walk! Had to visit the doc, get meds, so more biking instead 🙂
        12 km bike, 45 min zumba toning

      • Still counts!!

  • I’m in. I’m going to get up in the morning and get it done before I turn into a food coma zombie. 🙂

  • teddyree

    I’m in! It’s so hot here today I’ve barely moved so any and all encouragement will be gobbled up 🙂

    • Haha! That’s awesome!! You go get in those steps. I’m heading to bed now, but look forward to your report back when I wake!

  • Great idea! Count me in! I’m definitely running in the morning!

    • Awesome! I look forward to your report! Happy Thanksgiving!!

  • Janina Keßler

    I went for a walk in my lunch break 🙂 now it’s your turn

  • I’m at 9,527 after walking for 81 minutes. Now to get cleaned up and start getting ready for family to come over for a late lunch. Thanks for encouraging me to do this. I wouldn’t have done it without your help.

    • Yea!! Congrats! I agree. This totally motivated me to get in a nice long walk! Happy Thanksgiving!

  • Karen

    We took the dogs and went walking in the empty shopping center (which is a good workout because it’s huge and has stairs) and then strolled over to Starbucks. I’m hoping to get a little more in after dinner but we’ll see if I can move then. lol

    Karen @For What It’s Worth

    • Awesome job Karen!! I hope for a slow stroll after dinner as well!

  • I just walked for 66 minutes (8,814 steps, 4.72 miles) and already have a total of 10,000 steps! Bring on the turkey! Happy Thanksgiving all!
