#FitReaders Check-In: October 27, 2017

#FitReaders Check-In: October 27, 2017 Welcome to #FitReaders!! Felicia the Geeky Blogger and I are super excited to be co-hosting this fitness-oriented group for another year! I will be hosting the monthly commit to exercise posts and weekly check-ins for October, November, and December. 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 October 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! (I’ve stopped doing Linky’s since it wasn’t really being used. Just leave your name and link to any check-in posts–on any format–in the comments!) Last Week (October 16 – October 22, 2017): Last week was a mixed week. I was on a roll with exercise – planning to have a “perfect” week for Apple Fitness and steps; however, I dropped some book-shelving on my foot Sunday, and ended up taking the day off from walking/exercise. It’s fine now, but it did hurt on Sunday. I failed at getting to yoga classes this week – that’s the first time in a while that I’ve missed my goal there. As for eating, Liza was here Monday – Tuesday, and I ate out more than usual. I also went out for dinner on Friday with my husband and ate a TON of food. So I was over my weekly totals by over 2,000 calories! That was still better than the previous week, and I’m doing better this week so far. I’m feeling a bit of the Fall Funk – darker mornings and evenings, changing weather… it’s weighing on my heart and mind, so I need to find a little extra motivation to get up and out these days. My Movement*: Monday: 31 minutes walking, 10,917 steps/day Tuesday: 52 minutes walking, 11,924 steps/day – 5k finished Wednesday: 38 minutes walking, 10,970 steps/day Thursday: 51 minutes walking, 11,891 steps/day – 5k finished Friday: 34 minutes walking, 11,427 steps/day Saturday: 35 minutes walking, 17,664 steps/day Sunday: no exercise, 6,857 steps/day * I track two different goals.

You can leave a comment below and/or leave your name and website/link here! Last Week (October 9 – October 15, 2017): Well… Let’s just say I am having fun and leave it at that, shall we? First, it was my son’s 14th birthday. Then, my dear friend, Liza, came to visit last week, arriving late on October 11, and heading home on October 17th. We did all sorts of awesome things like walk coast and enjoy a lobster roll in Maine, attend the Fall in Love with New England romance conference in Manchester, NH, go leaf peeping and have lunch with Shannon Stacey, and take one of the famous Duck Boat Tours in Boston. The whole trip was peppered with great food and drink. And while we did get our walks in, I ate a lot of extra calories. It’s a bit frustrating that one “bad” week undid the hard work over three weeks. It just doesn’t seem fair! My Movement*: Monday: 60 minutes yoga + 15 minutes elliptical, 10,100 steps/day Tuesday: 48 minutes walking, 11,032 steps/day – 5k finished Wednesday: 48 minutes walking, 12,112 steps/day Thursday: 40 minutes sightseeing/walking + 20 minutes walking, 14,841 steps/day Friday: 47 minutes walking, 14,454 steps/day Saturday: 47 minutes walking, 11,652 steps/day – 5k finished Sunday: no exercise, 10,290 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.

You can leave a comment below and/or leave your name and website/link here! Last Week (October 2 – October 8, 2017): The start of October was a good one. I did slow down a little with the exercise due to my schedule. These next few weeks are SOOOO busy, and I’ll do my best to reach my goals, but be happy with effort. I did a good job watching my caloric intake and was down another 0.5 lbs last week. I’m at my lowest weight in three months, which makes me feel better both physically and mentally.

Last Week (September 25 – October 1, 2017): Well, even with my parents’ visit and a big meal or two, I worked hard again last week. I ended up with another weight loss – just over a pound! I’m feeling much better and glad to know that with a little extra work, I can take off the weight. Let’s see if I can do it for a third week! Wrapping up September, I did a pretty good job meeting all of my weekly goals. I struggled most with the caloric intake, but doing much better than I did over the summer.

I just finished a pretty good week “on paper,” but my weight actually went up a bit this week. I’m feeling a bit down and frustrated, but won’t let it stop me. I think I’ve finally hit that age when my metabolism just doesn’t want to work with me any longer. Even a year ago, I was able to have a week like this last one and lose or be around my goal weight. Now… I’m up about 6 pounds and not losing. I’ll give it time and reevaluate. It may just take me longer now, or I may need to change something in my diet and/or exercise. We’ll see.

Everything seems like a blur, and I’m just living day-to-day, making sure we all get where we need. It was also Labor Day (US holiday) at the beginning of my workout week, and we went to a big cookout and ate lots of yummy foods. I liked getting back into a routine, but I did not like having no time for myself. I overate, but my weight plateaued.

I kept up my workout schedule for the most part, and mid-week started my new effort for caloric reduction. Overall, I wasn’t very successful. I was over 2,200 calories for the week. Mostly due to a GNO to Margaritas and a long week, which lead to more junk eating. My weight was up 0.5 lbs for the week, and I’m still over 5 lbs above my goal weight. Next week (this week), I head back to work, so hopefully some routine will help me. I also plugged in my Apple Watch to charge on Sunday and then forgot to put it back on, so I didn’t close rings that day. My Movement*: Monday: 35 minutes walking, 12,060 steps/day Tuesday: 57 minutes yoga + 35 minutes walking, 10,220 steps/day Wednesday: 74 minutes walking (2 walks), 14,733 steps/day Thursday: 44 minutes walking, 9,476 steps/day Friday: 59 minutes walking, 13,458 steps/day – 5k finished Saturday: 51 minutes walking, 14,267 steps/day – 5k finished Sunday: 49 minutes walking, 10,103 steps/day * I track two different goals.
