Weekly Check-in August 22, 2014
Greetings my blogging and walking friends! It is time for your weekly check-in!
I am taking over hosting the weekly #bookblogwalkers check-ins in August for Felicia. She has been such an inspiration for me on my journey, and I am happy to help out and give back. For those who don’t know me, I am Jen Twimom aka @twimom227 on Twitter, and this is my book blog. You can read about my fitness journey on my #bookblogwalkers page. I post a weekly update every Monday, so please feel free to stop by there as well.
How are you doing this week? Did you make any new goals for yourself? Did you get in one day, two days, three days of walking (or other exercise)? Even getting up and moving for 10 minutes will make a difference! I am proud of each of you for making the decision to be a healthier you! Let me know how I can help!
My goal for August is to “move with purpose” for 30 minutes at least 5 days per week, with no more than 1 day off per week. These days my primary “movement” (aka exercise) is walking. I am happy to report that once again, I walked at least 30 minutes each day this week. And although I’ve lost one of the pounds I gained while away at Authors After Dark, I am still over three pounds above the goal weight I made back at the beginning of the summer. I know that if I want to get back to that weight, I’m going to have to watch my caloric intake much more closely – sticking under certain limits each day, and I honestly don’t know if I can do that on a continual basis. Do any of you have a suggestion on how to do that (other than tracking, which I already do)? If so, let me know! Thanks!
