Sign up for November!

Welcome to #FitReaders!! Felicia the Geeky Blogger and I are super excited to be co-hosting this fitness-oriented group for another year! I will be hosting the monthly commit to exercise posts and weekly check-ins for October, November, and December. Felicia will still have weekly check-ins on her blog as well. If you have any questions about #FitReaders, you can leave them in the comment section or email me at twimom227(at)gmail(dot)com.

I check-in here every Friday, but my fitness week is Monday – Sunday. So my check-ins are always about a week behind. You can check-in however you want.

Last Week (November 6 – November 12, 2017):

Last week wasn’t bad. I ate out on two nights, which ended up being high-calorie days only because of those meals. Each of the other days during the week, I met my caloric intake goals. I also worked hard to close all of the Apple Health Rings. I am down a pound, which feels good since I did work hard this week (even with the big meals).

My Movement*:
Monday: 47 minutes walking, 10,705 steps/day – 5k finished
Tuesday: 42 minutes walking, 11,553 steps/day
Wednesday: 49 minutes walking, 13,454 steps/day – 5k finished
Thursday: 38 minutes walking, 10,154 steps/day
Friday: 59 minutes yoga + 51 minutes walking, 12,379 steps/day – 5k finished
Saturday: 51 minutes walking, 12,966 steps/day – 5k finished
Sunday: 35 minutes walking, 15,141 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.

November Goals:

How did I do last week?

  • Close all three “rings” in Apple Watch, 5 days per week – 7/5
  • Move with purpose (exercise) at least 30 minutes, 6 days per week – 7/6
  • Track my caloric intake using the LoseIt! app – 7/7
  • Consume no more than 700 extra calories per week – Fail! (2,800 calories over)
  • Get in 6 5ks and 6 yoga classes for month – at least one per week – 7 5ks + 2 yoga
  • Walk 10,000 steps per day – 7/7
