#FitReaders Commit to Exercise: October 2016



Welcome to #FitReaders!! Felicia the Geeky Blogger and I are super excited to be co-hosting this fitness-oriented group for another year! I’m hosting check-ins for the remainder of 2016, from October through December, and you’ll find the check-ins every Friday right here. On the first of each month, there will be a “Commit to Exercise” post where you can sign up and share your monthly goals.

It is time to Commit to Exercise for October 2016! Whether you are just joining us, need to get back on the wagon, or continuing your monthly progress, now is the time to stand up and say “I’m in! I’m committed to getting up and moving!”

So are you ready to commit to being fit? Remember there will be weekly check-ins on Fridays, motivation on twitter (#FitReaders), and a support group over on Facebook.

Let’s get this month started by adding your link down below. Add your name to the linky and leave a comment telling us what your goals are for April and how your week was in the comments. Note: you do not have to have a blog to participate. You can use any URL to sign up, including your Twitter, Facebook, Goodreads, or Booklikes site. Please let me know if you have any problems signing up.

Goals for October:

I’ve been making great strides over the past month with better eating and solid exercising, with the only goal I missed significantly in September being the BodyFlow (yoga) class attendance. I want to continue to work towards getting to and maintaining my goal weight. Mostly, I want to have a healthy outlook and continue to support my fellow FitReaders. My monthly goals are:

  • Reach 10,000 steps each day
  • Move with purpose (exercise) at least 30 minutes, 6 days per week
  • Complete the hourly “red dot” from 8am – 7pm 3 days per week
  • Track my caloric intake using the LoseIt! app each day
  • Walk a 5K each week (4 for the month of October)
  • Attend Body Flow once per week (4 for the month of October)

So are you ready to lace up your sneakers? Are you ready to up your commit to fit? Be sure to stop over at Felicia the Geeky Blogger blog to check in with her.

    I’m in!! My goals for this month are to get in three 5ks, including my fitreader one, I signed up for two halloween themed 5ks. I also started The Strength Protocol program and 2 Minute Multiplank Challenge on Darebee, both are 30 days long. I usually suck at programs or challenging myself but I’m hoping to keep with it this time. Wish me luck!

    • Good luck! You can do it! Keep us posted!

  • I am in 😀
    I have totally forgotten about logging 5 ks, for me, I am lazy, I may walk 5 k, but to put sportstracker on, eh. So lazy srsly

    • You can always go back and log the 5ks so you can earn your medal! And get that fitbit back! 🙂

  • I’m in!! This is my first full month with my Fitbit and I’m excited 🙂

    • Yea! Glad you are enjoying your Fitbit! Thanks for joining us!

    My goals for this month would be to train for my 5k and make sure I go to the gym at least twice a week. I also want to walk some more – maybe not 10,000 steps but close to it.

    • Welcome back, Adriana! When is that 5k? You can do it!

  • Kristin T.

    I’m in!!! Now that the craziness at work has settled down, I’m back to training mode for my big walk.

    • Thanks Anna! It’s definitely a yo-yo journey!
