Commit to Exercise: December 2016

Posted December 1, 2016 by Jen in #FitReaders Tags: ,


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 for the remainder of 2016, and you’ll find the check-ins every Friday right here. On the first of each month, there will be a “Commit to Exercise” post where you can sign up and share your monthly goals.

It is time to Commit to Exercise for December 2016! 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 support group over on Facebook.

Let’s get this month started by adding your link down below. Add your name to the linky and leave a comment telling us what your goals are for April and how your week was 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.

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.

Goals for December:

I had a decent November, doing better with my eating and hitting my step/exercise goals most days, with the only goal I missed significantly in November being the BodyFlow (yoga) class attendance. I got back down to my goal weight, and now I want to work at maintaining it. Mostly, I want to have a healthy outlook and continue to support my fellow FitReaders. My monthly goals are:

  • Reach 10,000 steps each day
  • Move with purpose (exercise) at least 30 minutes, 6 days per week
  • Complete the hourly “red dot” from 8am – 7pm, 3 days per week
  • Track my caloric intake using the LoseIt! app each day
  • Walk a 5K each week (5 for the month of December)
  • Find a new yoga class to replace BodyFlow (to start in January 2017)

Coming later this month…


On Sunday December 25th… Join Felicia and me and #StrutMyStuff on Christmas Day! No matter where you live or whether or not you celebrate Christmas, join us in our effort to get up and move. More details to come!

So are you ready to lace up your sneakers? Are you ready to up your commit to fit? Be sure to stop over at Felicia the Geeky Blogger blog to check in with her.
