#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

I’m still not doing as much as I would like. I did speak to my doctor this week about losing weight, and he gave me tons of tips, mostly dealing with my eating, which I think will be a great help. So I’m staying positive! Unfortunately I have holidays and a big trip coming up so I won’t be eating as well as I should, but I’m going to try anyway. And definitely in the new year, I’ll be working on eating much better and working out more, too!

A note about this weeks’s stats: In my last FitReaders post, I ended with Friday, November 11, so this time I’m starting with Saturday, November 12, so this isn’t a full week. I know, I know, I messed stuff up, but next time it should all be back on track!

Saturday (11/12): No exercise, 2,690 steps
Sunday (11/13): No exercise, 2,243 steps
Monday (11/14): Ran around with my son, pushing him and carrying him 20 minutes, 4,552 steps
Tuesday (11/15): No exercise, 2,878 steps
Wednesday (11/16): No exercise, 1,973 steps (My FitBit died and I didn’t realize it)
Thursday (11/17): 10 minute dance party with my son, 3,729 steps

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