#FitReaders Check-In: June 23, 2017

#FitReaders Check-In: June 23, 2017 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. Important links: The June Virtual 5k and 10k Race Series + 1 mile Fun Run finish line (for after you complete the “race”) #FitReaders information page #FitReaders 101 Facebook Group Checking in for the week? You can leave a comment below and/or leave your name and website/link here! Last Week (June 12 – June 18, 2017): Gah… which way am I going? That is how I feel right about now. I had a fun week. It was the end of school for my kiddos. I took a day off and helped at my 5th grader’s final Field Day (then went out to lunch with some friends who also worked it). My girl also had a 5th Grade “graduation” (it was a recognition assemble), and I rounded out the week taking 11 of my Girl Scouts on a Camporee. There were 100 of us total. So not a lot of dedicated exercise, and not the best eating. But fun! I did gain 1.5 lbs this week. Now I’m just hoping to survive another 10 days until vacation! My Movement*: Monday: 47 minutes walk, 14,141 steps/day – 5k completed Tuesday: 60 minutes yoga + worked field day, 11,987 steps/day Wednesday: 47 minutes walk, 11,580 steps/day – 5k completed Thursday: 30 minute walk, 11,142 steps/day Friday: no exercise, 10,644 steps/day Saturday: no exercise but walked all over at Camporee, 19,166 steps/day Sunday: no exercise, 10,598 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. June Goals: How did I do last week? Reach my daily “Move” goal (Apple Watch) 5 days per week – 5/5 Reach 10,000 steps each day – 7/7 Move with purpose...

You can leave a comment below and/or leave your name and website/link here! Last Week (June 5 – June 11, 2017): Wow… I don’t even remember last week. I was so busy, and I just now discovered that I didn’t even hit 10,000 steps on two of the days! Plus I didn’t walk a single 5k last week. I swear, my life is a whirlwind right now and I am just doing my best to keep up. I did eat more than I should have, and my weight is up slightly. It’s discouraging only because I am not taking care of myself and don’t really see myself taking the time to do so in the next couple of weeks. I need a vacation! My Movement*: Monday: 72 minutes yoga + 30 minutes walk, 9,753 steps/day Tuesday: 30 minutes walk, 12,007 steps/day Wednesday: 35 minutes walk, 12,883 steps/day Thursday: 63 minutes yoga + 30 minute walk, 12,987 steps/day Friday: 30 minutes walk, 11,860 steps/day Saturday: no exercise, 8,059 steps/day Sunday: 37 minutes walk, 12,607 steps/day * I track two different goals.

You can leave a comment below and/or leave your name and website/link here! 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.

You can leave a comment below and/or leave your name and website/link here! Last Week (May 22 – 28, 2017): More of the same. Busy schedule means less exercise and more take out / quick meals. Also did a lot of picnic-type stuff over the long weekend. Weight staying stable. I would like to lose 3-5 lbs before summer, but I don’t see it happening. On Thursday I was so excited I closed all of my Apple Watch “rings,” but I forgot to look at steps… I wish the Apple Watch would let me set a step goal. My Movement*: Monday: 58 minutes yoga + 45 minutes walk, 11,600 steps/day – 5k completed Tuesday: 44 minutes walk, 12,178 steps/day Wednesday: 36 minutes walk + 35 minutes yoga, 10,755 steps/day Thursday: 60 minutes yoga + 30 minute walk, 8,885 steps/day Friday: no exercise, 7,243 steps/day Saturday: no exercise, 10,727 steps/day Sunday: no exercise, 8,662 steps/day * I track two different goals.

May Goals: Overall, my May was good, but I didn’t meet several of my goals over the weeks. I was about 75% or so on my goals. I did get in my 5k’s (I walked a 5k on Monday May 29, which is “next week”) and my yoga classes, which I am proud of. I hope to be better on steps and overall exercise in June. How did I do last week? Reach my daily “Move” goal (Apple Watch) 5 days per week – 5/5 Reach 10,000...

You can leave a comment below and/or leave your name and website/link here! 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.

You can leave a comment below and/or leave your name and website/link here! Last Week (May 8 – 14, 2017): I had a mixed bag week, last week. I did pretty good Monday – Thursday, but then not so good over the weekend. It was bad weather, we went to the movies, I vegged most of Mother’s Day, etc. I also ate a lot those days. I’m finding it hard to meet my “Move Goal” which is achieving a specific amount of active calories each day. The only days I seem to make it are days that I do two types of exercises and/or long/faster walks. So I’ve lowered the goal for next week to see if that is more realistic (and achievable). My Movement*: Monday: 42 minutes walk, 10,900 steps/day Tuesday: 55 minutes walk, 12,124 steps/day – 5k completed Wednesday: 40 minutes walk, 10,347 steps/day Thursday: one hour yoga + 48 minute walk, 11,986 steps/day – 5k completed Friday: no exercise, 5,267 steps/day Saturday: 20 minutes walk, 7,847 steps/day Sunday: 30 minutes elliptical, 7,882 steps/day * I track two different goals.

You can leave a comment below and/or leave your name and website/link here! 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.
