Welcome to #FitReaders!! Felicia the Geeky Blogger and I are super excited to be co-hosting this fitness-oriented group for another year! I’m hosting check-ins from April through June 2016, and you’ll find the check-ins every Friday right here.
I only use the linky for the monthly Commit to Exercise posts, so please use the comment section below for your check-in. You can leave a link to your own weekly check-in blog post or any social media site in the comment section. Or if you prefer, use the comment section as your own weekly check-in space.

My fight with the “red dot” continues this week, when I missed one hour by a couple measly steps at work on Tuesday. #grrr I swear #Fitbit is out to get me! I did make my “hourly activity goal” on 3 days this week! Speaking of #Fitbit, have you seen the new dashboard yet? It rolled out on my iPhone on Wednesday. I like it.
The week was pretty good. I’m working hard to eat better, but indulging once and a while. We have our annual neighborhood Lobstah (that’s lobster for those non-New Englanders) Bake on Sunday. There will be lots of eating and drinking! Medically, the doctor changed my blood pressure meds this week, and I noticed on Thursday I was very winded and heart racing when going up and down the stairs. I’ll be monitoring that. I also have an appointment scheduled with a physical therapist for my calf/achilles issues. My doctor thinks it could be tendonitis. We’ll see next week.
Friday: one walk totaling 27 minutes, 12,768 steps/day
Saturday: one walk totaling 49 minutes, 12,369 steps/day
Sunday: one walk totaling 33 minutes, 12,861 steps/day
Monday: one walk totaling 70 minutes, 16,059 steps/day
Tuesday: two walks totaling 59 minutes, 13,113 steps/day
Wednesday: one walk totaling 45 minutes, 12,533 steps/day
Thursday: one walk totaling 40 minutes, 12,000+ 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.
