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:

This week really flew by. Last weekend was busy with Halloween and my brother-in-law’s birthday. I ate a LOT of candy, too. In fact on Monday, over 50% of my day’s calories could be classified as “fun size” or “mini.” EEP! But at least I got in several steps over the week.

On Thursday I flew down to Florida to visit Mom and Dad. I’ll be here until Monday. It’s the first time I’ve gone to visit them without the kiddos. I’m checking in on my dad after his recent bout of hospital stays and heart troubles. My mom loves to walk – so I should have no troubles getting in a whole bunch of steps. I’ll let you know next week!

My Movement*:
Friday: trick-or-treat walking for 26 minutes, 11,690 steps/day
Saturday: one walk totaling 35 minutes, 14,113 steps/day
Sunday: no exercise, 5,357 steps/day
Monday: one walk totaling 70 minutes, 14,170 steps/day
Tuesday: two walks totaling 56 minutes, 11,387 steps/day
Wednesday: three walks totaling 65 minutes, 12,992 steps/day
Thursday: airport walking for 24 minutes, 10,000 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. Nice work this week. I’ve been really busy. I have my brother and sister-in-law coming into town next weekend, so I’ve been trying to get extra cleaning in before they get here. I have been joining more FitBit challenges which does help to motivate. 🙂

    Nice work 🙂 hope your dad is feeling better. Have fun in FL
    I finally got back to running and it was such a good feeling and I was able do do some yoga.

    • That’s awesome! My mom got me to run a marathon back in 2001. Neither of us runs any longer, but we love to walk – one of us pushing the other – when we are together. Today was my turn to push her to walk with me!
