#FitReaders Check-In: June 3, 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 Week

So this is my first week doing #FitReaders (with the exception of the couple of times I kind of started before but never stuck with it), and I technically signed up for June so I guess I should be starting with June 1, but I’ve been exercising almost every day for the past 7 weeks, so I’ll just go ahead and share what I’ve been doing for the week.

Right now I’m doing a second round of Cize, and while I enjoy it a lot of the time, I’m just not seeing any kind of progress, except for the fact that I have much more stamina. But I suppose that would have happened if I had done any other program, since I hadn’t exercised at all for a long time before I started the first round of Cize 7 weeks ago. But I plan on finishing up this round and then switching to 21 Day Fix, hoping that I’ll be more successful with that. My family and I are going to try to start walking several evenings a week as well, so that will be a nice addition to the programs I’m already doing.

I’m also (mostly) doing the portion-control meal plan that goes along with Cize, but I have had several not-so-great meals this week. I’m hoping to eat much healthier next week.
Friday (5/27): Cize & 8 Count Abs, 49 minutes
Saturday (5/28): Break Day (Before I joined #FitReaders)
Sunday (5/29): Cize, 40 minutes
Monday (5/30): Cize & 8 Count Abs, 49 minutes
Tuesday (5/31): Walking with the family, 10 minutes
Wednesday (6/1): Cize, 25 minutes
Thursday (6/2): Cize & 8 Count Abs, 53 minutes

Are you participating in #FitReaders, too? Let me know, and I’ll try to stop by your blog!
