Welcome to #FitReaders!! Felicia the Geeky Blogger and I are super excited to be co-hosting this fitness-oriented group for another year! For the months of April, May, and June, the weekly check-ins will be right here. Felicia will still have weekly check-ins on her blog as well.

Last Week (May 15 – 21, 2017):

This was another “stay the course” type of week. I started strong and ended okay with my exercise. And I had another week where I ate way too much junk. So I pretty much stayed where I was at, thus “stay the course.” I did lower my “Move” goal this week. I had been aiming for 520 active calories each day, but it was very tough to reach, even when I exercised. So I changed it to 500 active calories. I still only reached it 4 days, but I also didn’t exercise 2 days last week, so I’m trying that goal again this week.

My Movement*:
Monday: 65 minutes yoga + 38 minutes walk, 10,179 steps/day
Tuesday: 50 minutes walk, 12,380 steps/day – 5k completed
Wednesday: 33 minutes walk, 11,699 steps/day
Thursday: 60 minutes yoga + 50 minute walk, 11,986 steps/day – 5k completed
Friday: no exercise, 5,807 steps/day
Saturday: 32 minutes walk + 1.5 hours yard work, 14,614 steps/day
Sunday: no exercise, 8,062 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.
