#FitReaders: Weekly Check-in Jan 29 2016

#FitReaders hosted by Geeky Bloggers Book Blog  and That’s What I’m Talking About.

Hey FitReaders! It is time for your weekly check-in (feel free to use whatever day you want to check-in–these posts will be going up on Fridays)! How are you doing this week? Did you get a day, 2 days, 3 days of exercise? Are you on track with your other health goals! I am so very proud of you for making the effort to get heart healthy and putting exercise in your life. We can do it!

This week:

Make sure you go visit That’s What I’m Talking About and see her check-in

  • 3 more days to get your Jan Fun Mile, 5k, 10k (optional fun–this is NOT required) for Jan HERE.
  • I lost another pound this week so I will be taking another month off from Fitbit. Evidently more strength was exactly what I needed 🙂
  • I flunked Food Planning this week. No excuse for either than a major case of the lazies 🙂

How did you do?

  1. Congratulations on the weight loss and good job with strength training! I need to add that to my exercise. I have some 1 lb and 3 lb weights somewhere but I don’t know what I did with them!

    I didn’t stay on track with my eating this week either though I am planning to try Paleo for February. Lately I’ve gotten into the very bad habit of eating Pop Tarts as snacks in the evening after supper as well as for my breakfast. Definitely not healthy!

    I hope you have a great week and meet your fitness and health goals 🙂

  2. Congrats on your weight loss!!! I so need to do strength training…I’m so bad at remembering to do it! When I do yoga regularly, I feel like I am at least getting some type of body strength training in, but I haven’t even been doing that lately. I really need to get my act together…I’ll figure it out – it’s all about finding a happy medium, right?

  3. Strength training is so important. When I was younger I only did cardio. Now I find that adding in at least a moderate amount of strength training is so much more important to feeling healthy and strong. You also get the added benefit of the metabolism boost.

    I was able to stay on track this week and completed four more sessions at the gym. So I’m ending January on a high note. Looking forward to continuing participating in the challenge, and meeting my fitness goals, in February!

  4. Congrats on your pound.

    Whenever I see the fun miles I think of that dog who ran and got 7th. I could so see my dogs doing something like that. Okay, not the run but coming home with a medal after an escape. LOL

  5. Strength training sounds great and important too. Ahem I should do it but don’t. Didn’t quite make my step goals this week but been busy in house and garden so a variety of exercise and surprising just how many steps went with it.

  6. I walked 1 mile everyday but only did a few workouts this week. My knee and arm was bothering me so I took a few days off. I’m hoping to get in another 5k this weekend.

  7. I made it to the gym twice and got 12k steps in every day (some were more challenging than others). I have been pushing myself too much and caused my plantar fasciitis and sciatica to both flare up. I have been stretching and foam rolling and it’s a little better but I have a 5k race Sunday and I just want to finish, not aiming for a specific time. Stalled out on Week 5 day 3 of C25k. I may backtrack a few weeks once I get my leg/foot issues straightened out.

    congrats on the weight lost! Rest is good for a body.

  8. I know how sometimes things that are designed to help you work against you. I used to track my calories. At first it really helped me. It helped me learn portion sizes and more about how many calories were in different foods I ate. However, after a while, I found myself eating even when I wasn’t hungry because I still had calories available or picking a food that wasn’t good, but had few calories, but horrible everywhere else. For example, a Reese’s cup and a large banana are about the same in calories, with the banana having actually a little more. I think it is all about finding what works best for you. Great job on the weight loss.
