Welcome to #FitReaders2024!! Felicia and I are excited to co-host this fitness-oriented group. 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 post my weekly check-ins 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 (February 5 – February 11, 2024):

Other than a lot of over-eating, I had a good week last week. The week started off like normal. On Thursday, I went out for dinner to celebrate a friend’s birthday. Then on Saturday, my daughter and I visited her other top college choice. The day was a lot of fun. The weather was over 60F (which is very unseasonable for northern New England). We were on the road and gone all day, so we ate out for all three meals, plus some snacks! The great news is… She made her choice and we were able to put down a deposit for enrollment in the fall. Sunday was another day filled with food… the Super Bowl. I wasn’t cheering for either team and enjoyed chatting and laughing with friends. But I ate a lot over the course of the evening, which showed up on the scale Monday morning!

Weight: Up 2.5 pounds.

Goals: I tended to overeat most days last week. I didn’t listen to my body at all.

Don’t forget to join the Facebook Group and check in with us there!

Goals for February:

  • Close all three “rings” in Apple Watch, 5 days per week. – 5/5 days
  • Move with purpose (exercise) at least 30 minutes, 5 days per week. – 5/5 days
  • Stretch for 10 minutes 5 days per week. – 4/5 days
  • Limit alcohol intake to 2 days per week. – 2 days

During 2024 I plan:

  • To maintain my January 1st weight. I will do with through exercise and making adjustments to my caloric intake. I don’t have to be perfect, but I do need to make a true effort. 
  • To move. I will do this primarily via walking, four to seven days per week. I also need to stretch most/all of the days I exercise.
  • To remain an active member of FitReaders and support my fellow members. I will do this by actively participating in the FitReader Facebook Group and continuing to share my journey with my weekly check-in on the blog.
So are you ready to lace up your sneakers? Are you ready to up your commit to fit?
