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 22 – April 28, 2024):

My daughter was on school break last week, and I took off a couple afternoons to do some shopping with her. We were successful in finding her a dress for graduation. The weekend was pretty low key. We hung out with the neighbors for burgers on Saturday, and I volunteered at a road race on Sunday morning. It was my last semi-calm week until after the girl’s graduation in June. I enjoyed having some down time.

Weight: I was down 0.9 pounds and down 1.8 for the month. I’m also down 5 pounds for the year. I know how easily that can change, so I need to continue to be diligent with my tracking and caloric intake.

Goals: I did well on my goals. I think I’m successful with them because there aren’t too many and they are just enough to help keep me on the right path.

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. – 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. – 5/5 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?
