Weekly Check-in August 29, 2014
Greetings my blogging and walking friends! It is time for your weekly check-in!
This is my last week 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!
As I’ve been mentioning in the weekly posts, 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. My primary “movement” (aka exercise) is walking. I have kept up with that goal, and I’m contemplating what to do for September. As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve hit a plateau in my weight; hovering a few pounds above my “goal weight.” Last week, Jess suggested that I try mixing in some jogging with my walking, and I did that two days this week. In fact, on Wednesday, I walk/jogged a total of 4 miles, with the middle two miles at an 11 min/mile pace! So I think I will try to keep this up for a while – making my goal in September to walk/jog two of the six days, still going 30+ minutes on at least five days.
