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. Starting next week, I will be hosting the weekly check-ins for the second quarter of 2016 (April – June).

The March Virtual 5k and 10k Race Series + 1 mile Fun Run finish line (for after you complete the “race”)

This has been a real up and down week for me. Last weekend, I really over consumed – meals, snacks, sweets, and alcohol. It was the culmination of the slide I’d been on since late-January. I binged and felt the effects. It wasn’t pretty. At all. But it woke me up that I needed to get back on track and eat healthier. I don’t need to go without, but small portions and in moderation. Monday – Thursday have been MUCH better, and I FEEL so much better. Why do so many of us always need to “hit bottom” to remind us of that?? Anyhow, I hope to continue with a better, stronger mind-set and attitude going into April.
As for movement – I’m doing pretty good during the weekdays, not as well on the weekends. I don’t know that I’ll get my 10k in this month, but I have completed a number of 5ks. We’ll see what next week brings. Remember that next week is the end of the first quarter, and the official check-ins will be here! Hope you have a great week.

* 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.
Don’t forget that starting next week, the official weekly check-ins will be here!
