#FitReaders Check-In: August 11, 2017


Sign up for August!

Welcome to #FitReaders!! Felicia the Geeky Blogger and I are super excited to be co-hosting this fitness-oriented group for another year! Monthly Commit posts and weekly check-ins are with Felicia in July, August, and September. I will still have weekly check-ins on my 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 (July 31 – August 6, 2017):

Hmmm… so I’m feeling a bit frustrated. I am back up that half pound I lost last week. Sure, I’m eating a bit more than my weekly allotment should be, but not excessively so. And I’m exercising like a mad woman. I closed all three Apple Watch rings on six days last week – finally taking a break from all the movement on Saturday because frankly, I was tired, worn out, and hurting. In the past, I would be losing weight with this kind of effort. I guess with age comes additional effort. *le sigh*

My Movement*:
Monday: 72 minutes yoga + 35 minutes walking, 9,316 steps/day
Tuesday: 42 minutes walking, 12,243 steps/day
Wednesday: 38 minutes walking + 35 minutes walking, 14,994 steps/day
Thursday: 60 minutes yoga + 36 minutes walking, 12,732 steps/day
Friday: 63 minutes walking, 12,732 steps/day – 5k finished
Saturday: no exercise, 5,098 steps/day
Sunday: 52 minutes walking, 12,474 steps/day – 5k finished

* 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.

August Goals:

How did I do last week?

  • Close all three “rings” in Apple Watch, 5 days per week – 6/5
  • Move with purpose (exercise) at least 30 minutes, 6 days per week – 6/6
  • Track my caloric intake using the LoseIt! app – 7/7
  • Get in some 5ks and yoga – at least one per week – 2 5ks + 2 yoga classes for August
  • Walk 10,000 steps per day – 5/7
  • Have fun! – check!
