#FitReaders Check-In: November 12, 2016

FitReaders graphic 2016

#FitReaders is a group of book lovers who encourage each other with their fitness goals. It’s hosted by Felicia at The Geeky Blogger’s Book Blog and Jen at That’s What I’m Talking About. Go here or here for more info.

Each week, those who are participating in #FitReaders do a check-in where they share how their week went, fitness-wise. I’ll be trying to post these check-ins each week on Friday.

My Goals (For Now)

-Exercise at least 3 days/week
-Try to get at least 5,000 steps/day

These goals are just for now, because I’m trying to start small. Once I am hitting these goals frequently, I’ll switch to harder goals.

My Week

This post is actually for the past two weeks. I haven’t been very active lately. I’d like to blame it on the election (and I will blame most of this past week on the election), but I’ve not been very active before then as well. So I really haven’t been reaching either of my goals at all lately. But I did get in two Fun Miles during these past two weeks! One counts for November and one counts as a make-up for May. Which means I’m done with all the make-up months, since I started in June! (These update posts usually start with a Friday and end on Thursday, but with this one I’ve ended on a Friday, so that I can add that second Fun Mile on this post. It just feels easier for me to put them both on one post, IDK.) But hopefully I can be a bit more active for the rest of the month.

    Nice work on the catch up! It’s such a great feeling, isn’t it? Unfortunately, I allowed myself a bit of emotional eating this week, so I’m not looking forward to weigh-in tomorrow. We’ll see!
