Sign up for SEPTEMBER!

Welcome to #FitReaders!! Felicia the Geeky Blogger and I are super excited to be co-hosting this fitness-oriented group during 2015. For the months of July – September 2015, Felicia will be hosting the official check-ins. This is my weekly check-in post where I share about my week, and I hope you share about yours as well. You can also catch Felicia’s weekly check-in HERE.

If you have a weekly check-in blog post or put your updates on any social media site, please leave a link to your check-in posts in the comment section, below. Or, if you want to use this post as your weekly check-in, leave a comment telling us how your week went!

My Week:

So it’s still crazy here. After a WONDERFUL long (holiday) weekend, I started back to work (I have July and August off). I am sad that summer is “over,” and I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed. Although I am doing a decent job of making time to get in a walk, I’m not really pushing myself. And I’ve noticed that although I’ve not gained any weight, my clothes are getting a little snug in the waist. I am giving myself until the end of September to work out the “getting back to school/work” issues in my schedule. Once October hits, I need to seriously check in and get moving and eating better. I also feel like our group on a whole has been very busy and less cohesive. What can we do to get on track as a group??

My Movement*:
Friday: no exercise, 5,494 steps/day
Saturday: 40 minutes walking, 10,991 steps/day
Sunday: no exercise, 5,616 steps/day
Monday: 36 minutes walking, 12,123 steps/day
Tuesday: 40 minutes walking, 10,197 steps/day
Wednesday: 43 minutes walking, 10,148 steps/day
Thursday: 55 minutes Body Flow + 37 minutes walking, 11,142 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. 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.

Questions for YOU!

I promise that I’m going to get to a post on “excuses,” but honestly… I haven’t had time. Is giving an excuse of being “too busy” to write my post about making excuses to exercise even allowed?!

How was your week? Did you hit any milestones? Try a new food or workout? Celebrate your week with us!

    Summer has been hectic for sure. This week I was glad just to meet the 10K steps goal. Good luck getting back in the swing of a new schedule!

    • Thanks Mary! And great job with the 10K step goal. I will admit even though I didn’t make it every day, there were a couple nights that I was walking around my house to hit that mark!
