Sign up for June!

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. If you have any questions about #FitReaders, you can leave them in the comment section or email me at twimom227(at)gmail(dot)com.

I check-in here every Friday, but my fitness week is Monday – Sunday. So my check-ins are always about a week behind. You can check-in however you want.

Last Week (May 29 – June 4, 2017):

New month, same goals. I did much better with my overall movement and exercise last week. I hit 10k steps each day – even walking a bit before bed to make sure I got them all in. I also exercised 6 days – meeting my goal. It had been a while since I’ve met all my exercise goals. I did track my food, but there were a lot of extra calories, so my weight stayed the same. I really want to lose about 3 pounds before summer vacation, but unless I really change my eating habits over the next two weeks, it’s not going to happen.

My Movement*:
Monday: 58 minutes walk, 11,020 steps/day – 5k completed
Tuesday: 49 minutes walk, 11,574 steps/day – 5k completed
Wednesday: 41 minutes walk, 13,280 steps/day
Thursday: 60 minutes yoga + 30 minute walk, 10,267 steps/day
Friday: no exercise, 11,182 steps/day
Saturday: 58 minutes walk, 13,337 steps/day – 5k completed
Sunday: 44 minutes walk, 11,420 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.
