Welcome to #FitReaders!! Felicia the Geeky Blogger and I are super excited to be co-hosting this fitness-oriented group for another year! Starting next week, I will be hosting the weekly check-ins for the rest of 2016 (October-December), and the October Commit to Exercise post will be up tomorrow. You can still find check-ins every Friday at Felcia’s blog, as well. If you have any questions about #FitReaders, you can leave them in the comment section or email me at twimom227(at)gmail(dot)com.
The September Virtual 5k and 10k Race Series + 1 mile Fun Run finish line (for after you complete the “race”)
#FitReaders information page
Well, it certainly was a crazy week last week. My folks were in town and we did a lot, which kept me on my feet and stepping it up! While the stress of a busy life is still getting to me, having Mom and Dad here was wonderful. We did some small projects around the house and celebrated my mom’s birthday. I worked hard at watching what I ate, without skipping on the celebratory ice cream and other fun things. I have been feeling better about my personal health, which is one thing less to stress about. I was even back down near my goal weight when I weighed in on Monday. One day at a time… one day at a time.
Monday: one walk totaling 47 minutes, 13,901 steps/day – 5k finished
Tuesday: one walk totaling 48 minutes, 14,477 steps/day – 5k finished
Wednesday: one walk totaling 38 minutes, 11,150 steps/day
Thursday: one walk totaling 40 minutes, 13,955 steps/day
Friday: two walks totaling 37 minutes, 11,504 steps/day
Saturday: one walk totaling 31 minutes + corn maze, 15,003 steps/day
Sunday: one walk totaling 32 minutes, 12,576 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.
How did I do this week?
