Sign up for NOVEMBER!

Welcome to #FitReaders!! Felicia the Geeky Blogger and I are super excited to be co-hosting this fitness-oriented group during 2015. For the rest of 2015 (October – December), I 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.

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! (I only use the linky on the monthly commitment posts, for the weekly posts, I use the comments.)

My Week:

FitReaders Thanksgiving 2
Click to join the fun!

This was a fun week – with the Thanksgiving Holiday (U.S.) on Thursday, I only worked Monday and Tuesday. The kiddos were also off from school. Of course, this holiday is food-centric and I overate A LOT this week. I did get in my steps, so it mostly balanced out, with only a minor weight gain.

Did you go for a walk or exercise in any manner on Thanksgiving? If so, be sure to see the fun mini-challenge Felicia and I hosted. If you did you walk, check in there or here and download your badge to show off! Click the turkey badge for more information.

My Movement*:
Friday: one walk totaling 16 minutes, 11,307 steps/day
Saturday: one walk totaling 30 minutes, 11,425 steps/day
Sunday: one walk totaling 52 minutes, 11,857 steps/day
Monday: one walk totaling 40 minutes, 12,938 steps/day
Tuesday: three walks totaling 56 minutes, 12,759 steps/day
Wednesday: one walk totaling 48 minutes, 13,245 steps/day
Thursday: THANKSGIVING one walk totaling 67 minutes, 15,031 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.

  1. Wow! Thanksgiving was your biggest day! Great week. I did pretty well this week as well. I wouldn’t have done anything yesterday without the FitReaders/StrutMyStuff push.

    Sadly I wasn’t able to do much this week beside the thanksgiving walk yesterday and some yoga this morning but I had a high step count everyday because I was constantly on my feet moving.

  3. Great week! I loved the Thanksgiving challenge. Definitely helped motivate me. Now I’m participating in the Runner’s World challenge – from Thanksgiving to New Years the challenge is to run at least 1 mile a day. That’ll keep me on target and hopefully guilt free from all the holiday eating. 🙂 I over-indulged big time yesterday (and this morning), and I’m feeling the bloat. Need to get back on track.
