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.)
Join Felicia and me on our #ChristmasWalk on Friday December 25th. This will be just like the #ThanksgivingWalk we did a couple weeks back. No matter where you live or whether or not you celebrate Christmas, the idea is to get in your steps on this traditionally slow-moving, food-filled holiday. SO… here’s how to participate:
- Get in your exercise on December 25, 2015 – it doesn’t matter how big or small, just do it! Either while you are exercising, or after, tweet about it using the hashtags #ChristmasWalk #StrutMyStuff and/or #FitReaders
- There will be a check-in on December 25th (the last one of 2015!). Using the comment section, leave your name and what you did for your #ChristmasWalk.
- Once you have completed your walk (or other exercise) and completed your check-in, there will be an awesome award badge for you to download, and you can display it with pride.
Meanwhile, feel free to repost this graphic and instructions on your own blog/website. I’ll be talking about it until the day for the #ChristmasWalk.
I am pretty surprised at the number of steps I was able to get in this week. And, except for today, I’ve been eating pretty well. I’m actually down a couple pounds – which is good news going into the last half of the month. My goal will be to continue to get in 10K steps each day and try my best to limit junk food calories Monday – Thursday.
Friday: three walks totaling 57 minutes, 14,568 steps/day
Saturday: one walk totaling 21 minutes, 10,234 steps/day
Sunday: one walk totaling 30 minutes, 11,425 steps/day
Monday: one walk totaling 61 minutes, 17,858 steps/day
Tuesday: three walks totaling 43 minutes, 12,352 steps/day
Wednesday: two walks totaling 51 minutes, 12,458 steps/day
Thursday: 55 minutes Body Flow + one walk totaling 39 minutes, 12,050 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.
