Welcome to #FitReaders!! Felicia the Geeky Blogger and I are super excited to be co-hosting this fitness-oriented group for another year! If you have any questions about #FitReaders, you can leave them in the comment section or email me at twimom227(at)gmail(dot)com.
Most of our support is done via our Facebook Group. I will post my weekly check-in posts on Fridays, as it helps me be accountable. You are welcome to do your own check-in posts, check in below, in the comments, or check in with the Facebook group – whatever works for you!
I check in here every Friday, but my fitness week is Monday – Sunday. So my check-ins are always about a week behind.
Last Week (June 17 – June 23, 2019):
I got Invisalign braces on Monday – I’m hoping they prevent me from snacking as much, since I have to take them out every time I eat. It didn’t really make a difference in total calories the first week I had them – even though I didn’t do the quick grab and snack. I just ate more when I had them out! From an exercise standpoint, I had a good week (although I still haven’t gotten back to yoga). I also had my annual physical and other than my pre-existing hypertension (for which I take medication), I was in very good health. In fact, my cholesterols, which had been over 200 for the past two years, was down to 188 – which is fantastic! So, I guess the fitness work is paying off.
