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 (April 8 – April 14, 2024):

As I mentioned in last week’s post, my week started with a solar eclipse and 18th birthday, and I included it as part of the first week in April, although my goals below are for the full week. The remainder of the work week was ordinary, and I ate better/exercised regularly. On Saturday, a group of us got some to go Turkey dinners from the church fundraiser and hung out, played games, etc. And on Sunday, the weather improved, and I was able to do some yard work and go for a good walk.

Weight: I was down 0.8 pounds.

Goals: This past week I did much better meeting my goals. I consciously made decisions not to eat desserts on the days I’d reached my caloric limits. I also got in some good walks when the weather was nice.

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

Goals for April:

  • Close all three “rings” in Apple Watch, 5 days per week. – 6/5 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
  • Track food/calories 7 days per week. – 7/7 days
  • Limit alcohol intake to 2 days per week. – 1 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?
