Welcome to #FitReaders2020!! 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.

#FitReaders information page
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 (October 5 – October 11, 2020):
Last week was a mixed week. My folks were still visiting (until Wednesday), and I didn’t do as well meeting my caloric goals. I was still able to get out and walk, which was great.
Weight: I was down 0.4 pounds last week, staying just below my starting weight from January. I’m basically up and down this pound or two each week.
Goals: I did well on my exercise goals, but not as good on my food goals. I found focusing on being below my caloric intake each day really helped, but I was just barely over on two days, which I should have stayed under, and I was REALLY over on two other days.
Don’t forget to join the Facebook Group and check in with us there!
