Welcome to #FitReaders!! Felicia the Geeky Blogger and I are super excited to be co-hosting this fitness-oriented group! For the remainder of the 2016, I will be hosting the weekly check-ins (October-December).
FYI: I only use the linky signups for the monthly Commit to Exercise posts, so please use the comment section below for your check-in. You can leave a link to your own weekly check-in blog post or any social media site in the comment section. Or if you prefer, use the comment section as your own weekly check-in space.
** Don’t forget to “cross the finish line” each month after you complete your 5k, 10k, or your 1 mile walk. See this month’s link, below. You can always go back and log previous months if you’ve forgotten. **
If you have any questions about #FitReaders, you can leave them in the comment section or email me at twimom227(at)gmail(dot)com.

Okay. I’m doing good. I had an eating “challenge” this weekend, celebrating both my husband’s and brother-in-law’s birthdays on Saturday. I did eat and drink a bunch of calories (and went overboard with a second cupcake!), but it was balanced by good choices all week. Although I gained a little weight, I’m still just below my goal weight. I can do this!
Exercise is going well. I’ve finished all of my physical therapy from my achilles and calf issues – but I have a chronic condition, and the problem isn’t going to go away unless I keep on top of stretching and conditioning. I have a list of things to do at home… this will be a challenge for me. I also purposely skipped BodyFlow again this week. I’m going to have to scratch that goal for the month because I will be unable to go next two weeks. *sigh*
Monday: one walk totaling 50 minutes, 14,404 steps/day – 5k finished
Tuesday: one walk totaling 32 minutes, 10,674 steps/day
Wednesday: one walk totaling 36 minutes, 11,035 steps/day
Thursday: one walk totaling 39 minutes, 13,517 steps/day
Friday: one walk totaling 32 minutes, 11,160 steps/day
Saturday: one walk totaling 31 minutes, 10,452 steps/day
Sunday: one hour yard work + one walk totaling 32 minutes, 13,544 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 last week?
On Thursday November 24th… Join Felicia and me and #StrutMyStuff on Thanksgiving! 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:
How was your week? What were you successes? What were your challenges? Remember to check back on Thursday and #StrutMyStuff !!!
