Welcome to #FitReaders!! Felicia the Geeky Blogger and I are super excited to be co-hosting this fitness-oriented group for another year! For the the first quarter of 2016 (January – March), 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.
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.
Well after I went on about what a good week I had last week, I went and had a not-as-good week. LOL I missed my goal step count on two days!! Oh well… I carried on and look, I even made up for it during the rest of the week. The wind, cold, and ice have slowed me down some, but I’m still getting time outside for the most.
I did notice a problem with my FitBit on Tuesday. I thought it was weird that I hadn’t hit 10,000 steps by nighttime, and when I looked, it was at 9,996. I then continued around my house, doing chores, etc. But the counter wouldn’t move. It wasn’t until 5 minutes later, going down stairs, that it hit 10,000. Then it stayed there the rest of the night. Never moved. It also had me “sleeping” from 7:50AM to 11:50PM on Wednesday. What?! I mean, the sleep log showed that I was “restless” pretty much the entire day, but that clearly was a problem with the FitBit. I’ll keep an eye on things – may need to do something about it.
Friday: one walk totaling 11 minutes, 9,019 steps/day
Saturday: one walk totaling 40 minutes, 11,175 steps/day
Sunday: no exercise, 6,264 steps/day
Monday: one walk totaling 64 minutes, 14,126 steps/day
Tuesday: one walk totaling 11 minutes + 40 minutes elliptical, 10,000 steps/day
Wednesday: three walks totaling 56 minutes, 13,096 steps/day
Thursday: 53 minutes Body Flow + one walk totaling 38 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.
