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 (June 10 – June 16, 2024):

As you know, the week before this was so busy with my daughter’s graduation and visiting family; I actually looked forward to working on Tuesday to get back into a routine. I was busy finalizing my project at work Tuesday – Thursday, and ended up taking Friday off as a mental health day. I needed that time to ground myself and get back to “normal.” The weekend was pretty quiet, although I did a GNO with my neighbor on Friday and we had my in-laws over Sunday for a Father’s Day BBQ.

Weight: I was down 1.3 pounds last week.

Goals: This week was a great transition back to a regular routine. I focused on getting moving again and tracking food, so I did well with those goals. I’ll work on stretching again next week.

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

Goals for June:

  • 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. – 1/5 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?
