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 13 – November 19, 2017):

Another okay week. Exercising went well, and eating was good except two days. Even then, I made “better” choices (like pork tenderloin instead of battered fish tacos), but still, I was way over my caloric intake for the week. With Thanksgiving this week, I’m a bit worried I’ll go up a lot. I’ll need to stay focused.

My Movement*:
Monday: 50 minutes walking + 63 minutes yoga, 12,227 steps/day – 5k finished
Tuesday: 52 minutes walking, 12,656 steps/day – 5k finished
Wednesday: 41 minutes walking, 12,528 steps/day
Thursday: 61 minutes yoga + 34 minutes walking, 10,797 steps/day
Friday: 39 minutes walking, 10,732 steps/day
Saturday: 36 minutes walking, 12,592 steps/day
Sunday: 53 minutes walking, 15,141 steps/day – 5k finished

* 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! (2,400 calories over)
  • Get in 6 5ks and 6 yoga classes for month – at least one per week – 10 5ks + 4 yoga
  • Walk 10,000 steps per day – 7/7
