#FitReaders Check-In: February 17, 2017

#FitReaders Check-In: February 17, 2017 Welcome to #FitReaders!! Felicia the Geeky Blogger and I are super excited to be co-hosting this fitness-oriented group for another year! Felicia is hosting check-ins from January – March, 2017, and you’ll find check-ins every Friday at her blog. I’ll still have weekly check-ins here 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. I’m also on Fitbit and I’m always up for a challenge. Please send me a friend request! Important links: The February 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 Last Week (February 6 – 12, 2017): My first week back from Coastal Magic Con was snow-filled and crazy! I traveled back on and got home Monday night (2/6), then Tuesday was a snow day (kids had no school), Wednesday was a delayed start to school, Thursday was a snow day, Friday was a delayed start, then it snowed Saturday and Sunday. While I did get some exercise in and shoveled here and there, I didn’t do much of anything, including no yoga this week. In fact, this may be my worst week in 3 years when it comes to reaching my daily/weekly goals. Additionally, I had made a promise to myself to eat better for a couple weeks to lose the weight I’ve gained (I’m still above my goal weight), and I didn’t do it. I was WAY over my caloric intake on 3 days last week. I need to shake myself out of this complacent attitude and try harder. My Movement*: Monday: one walk totaling 23 minutes, 8,353 steps/day Tuesday: no exercise, 8,039 steps/day Wednesday: elipical/walking totaling 36 minutes, 11,863 steps/day Thursday: one walk totaling 51 minutes, 45 minutes shoveling 15,424 steps/day – 5k finished Friday: one hour downhill skiing, 10,374 steps/day Saturday: no exercise, 10,077 steps/day Sunday: no exercise, 6,817steps/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. February Goals: How did I do last week? Reach 10,000 steps...

I spent the week talking about books, meeting authors, hanging out with new and old friends, laughing, dancing, eating, and drinking. I did get in some walks and exercise, but not much (although I got in a lot of steps just from moving around). Due to the travel, I didn’t do well with my weekly goals at all (see below). I returned home from Coastal Magic with a significant weight gain. No surprise, but still, I’m a wee-bit disappointed that I didn’t try a little harder NOT to eat and drink so much! I think the Super Bowl party pushed me over the edge. I’m giving myself two weeks to try and take it off without a huge adjustment to my diet. However, with a week of snow heading our way, I don’t know when I’ll get in my walks! My Movement*: Monday: Yoga 60 minutes, one walk totaling 40 minutes, 10,714 steps/day Tuesday: no exercise, 6,718 steps/day Wednesday: two walks totaling 75 minutes, 14,733 steps/day Thursday: one walk totaling 33 minutes, 13,607 steps/day Friday: one walk totaling 36 minutes, 22,237 steps/day – 3 hours of dancing Saturday: no exercise, 8,351 steps/day Sunday: one walk totaling 45 minutes, 15,142 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.

I cannot wait! Fellow #FitReader Liza and I try to walk every morning when we are there. Looking back on the month, I had a pretty solid January. I met my 5k goal – getting in 6 for the month, and my yoga goal – attending 6 classes for the month. I consistently recorded my caloric intake everyday, even though I didn’t always stick within my daily caloric allotment! The red dot posed a bit of a challenge, and I didn’t make that goal every week. I also was prone to taking off a day each week and being lazy, which meant I usually hit 10,000 steps only 6 of 7 days each week. Overall, I am down 1.5 lbs for the month, or back to average after my holiday trip to Grand Cayman! My Movement*: Monday: Yoga 70 minutes, elliptical and walk totaling 49 minutes, 11,840 steps/day Tuesday: one walk totaling 32 minutes, 10,327 steps/day Wednesday: one walk totaling 36 minutes, 11,561 steps/day Thursday: Yoga 60 minutes, one walk totaling 48 minutes, 14,311 steps/day – 5k finished Friday: two walks totaling 59 minutes, 12,201 steps/day – 5k finished Saturday: no exercise, 7,100 steps/day Sunday: one walk totaling 31 minutes, 12,001 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.

How about you? Physically, I’m moving, although I did take off the day on Saturday. Food-wise, I’m keeping track and doing pretty good, allowing myself an indulgence once and a while (like making toffee brownies with my girl on Saturday). Emotionally… it’s been a rough week again. I miss my cats so much, and of course, I don’t have them here to snuggle with me and calm my inner soul. And while I don’t want to make this a political post I do need to say that the words and actions of the POTUS and his staff are...

I started Yoga at a new-to-me studio and went two times last week. I think this is going to work great for me; I can go on my days off, and possibly even on the weekends once and a while. I have already notice the impacts all over my body – using muscles I haven’t in a long while. I also got back to walking, even when we had cold, icy weather (I just go slower). Eating went okay, but I did some emotional...

The first week of 2017 wasn’t great in terms of exercise due to trying to catch up from vacation and weather. But I didn’t let it get me down. I moved when I could and prioritized my to do list. I also ate much better, and I’m happy to report that I’ve already lost the pound I gained while on vacation! I am also happy to report that I contacted the local yoga studio, and I’m set to start there this week. My Movement*: Monday: no exercise, 12,435 steps/day – lots of airport...

I enjoyed my time both here at home and away on our family trip to Grand Cayman. While I did track everything I ate/drank and walked almost every day, I didn’t stress about it. I turned off my Fitbit notifications and went with the flow. I only gained 2 pounds over the two weeks, and I am still at my goal weight since I’d shed a couple pounds leading up to the holidays. Life is good. My Movement*: Monday 12/19: one walk totaling 50 minutes, 17,233 steps/day – 5k finished Tuesday: two walks totaling...

I’ll have my year end report next week. This is my final check-in post of the year, but I’ll continue to post every Friday, so please continue to stop by.
