Welcome to #FitReaders!! Felicia the Geeky Blogger and I are super excited to be co-hosting this fitness-oriented group for 2015. During the months of October – December, 2015, I am hosting the official check-ins and quarterly giveaway.

It is time to Commit to Exercise for November 2015! Whether you are just joining us, need to get back on the wagon, or continuing your monthly progress, now is the time to stand up and say “I’m in! I’m committed to getting up and moving!”

So are you ready to commit to being fit? Remember there will be weekly check-ins on Fridays, motivation on twitter (#FitReaders), and a group over on Facebook (let me know if you want to be added).

Let’s get this month started by adding your link down below. Everyone who commits to exercise using the linky during October, November, and December will be entered to win a FABULOUS PRIZE. Details on that, below…

Add your name to the linky and leave a comment telling us what your goals are for November in the comments. Note: you do not have to have a blog to participate. You can use any URL to sign up, including your Twitter, FaceBook, GoodReads, or Booklikes site. Please let me know if you have any problems signing up.

Monthly Prizes:

On December 31, the last Friday of the quarter, I will announce the three monthly winners, one each from October, November, and December. All you need to do is sign up using the linky that was provided for the monthly Commit to Exercise posts. The monthly winner will receive an awesome prize, to be determined*.

Goals & Accomplishments:

My overall goals for 2015 are to keep up my current level of exercise, maintain my goal weight, and log my food intake every day for the year. This includes: moving with purpose for 30 minutes each day, taking off no more than one day per week. I also want to take one BodyFlow (yoga) Class per week. In addition, I will log my food/caloric intake each day using the LostIt! app. Finally, in addition to “exercising” I want to take 10,000 steps each day (with no more than one day off per week).

Questions for YOU!

What are your goals for November? Have you hit any milestones lately? Try a new food or workout? Celebrate with us!

  1. I slipped a lot last month as I injured my heel and wasn’t able to do my steps. But it’s ok again now so I’m ready to recommit and work on my goals again.
    I didn’t put logging my food into my goals but seeing that you did inspired me to do the same. So I’m off now to add that one in too, I know it really helps me to stay on track.

    • Yea Trish!! I’m glad you are better and back at it.

      Tracking my food has been a big step in keeping the weight off. I hope it helps you as well!

    Back to getting my 12k per day steps in. I am starting to work with a personal trainer at the gym.

  3. You are an inspiration and great to see you featured over at The Geeky Blogger. So I am in again, aiming to walk a little more but as always I want to make sure I don’t over do it as the body as ways of paying me back when I get too cocky!

    • Thank you so much!!! I just read Felicia’s post and totally teared up. I owe her so much. She’s such a great woman and friend! Glad you are in again!

    I want to get healthier and loose some weight. It is easier to do it as a group 🙂

    I’m in again…hoping to get 10k M-F, at least 5k on the weekends. I started tracking my food as of Nov 1 and have increased my water intake as well. I have 2 sessions with a personal trainer at the gym this month, so I’m hoping to get some good strength training ideas that I can incorporate into my workouts. Thanks for hosting!!!

    I started participating in the spring but then got out of exercising regularly. I’ve now found a workout I like and hope to get moving more this month as my lifestyle is pretty sedentary
