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 (April 24 – 30, 2017):

Last week I was vacation and enjoyed myself! With the nice weather, I actually “jog/walked” a couple times, getting in a good pace and burning more calories. I also tried the swim function on my Watch, which was very cool. One day, I forgot to put back on my Watch after showering and we spent the afternoon at an arcade/laser tag place. While my phone counted about 2,000 of those missing steps, I got no credit for my Apple Watch goals. 🙁 No worries!

Looking at the past month, my April was pretty good. I did dedicated workouts on 25 of 30 days. I got in ten 5k walks (2 over my goal), but only 4 days of yoga (2 under my goal). I am down one pound for the month, which is awesome, especially since I was on vacation for a week! I worked hard at making better eating decisions (except on vacation), and feel pretty good.

My Movement*:
Monday: one walk totaling 50 minutes, 14,031 steps/day – 5k completed
Tuesday: no exercise, 8,806 steps/day* went 4 hours w/out Apple Watch
Wednesday: 12 minute swim + one walk totaling 35 minutes, 11,465 steps/day
Thursday: no exercise, 10,171 steps/day
Friday: one walk totaling 56 minutes, 12,833 steps/day – 5k completed
Saturday: one walk totaling 35 minutes, 10,088 steps/day
Sunday: one walk totaling 36 minutes, 11,136 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.

April Goals:
