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 15 – April 21, 2024):

Last week was pretty normal. Monday through Friday was work, taking my daughter to dance, etc. We had a fun Saturday as a whole group of us went into Boston and had an early dinner in Boston’s North End. I also got a bunch of cookies and Mike’s Cannolis to bring home. Then we went to see our neighbor’s son play lacrosse. It was a beautiful evening and lots of fun. I also got in a lot of steps. Sunday was busy, and I got to join the April chat for the White Trash Zombie’s Read-Along. We had a pretty good sized group and great discussion.

Weight: I was down 0.5 pounds.

Goals: Other than missing one day of stretching, I did well with my goals.

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. – 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?
