#FitReaders: Weekly Check-in July 1
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 I am redifining my fitness goals. I have had loads of arthritis problems this year and it has impacted my body in ways I could never expect. After careful planning and visits to doctors we have come to something that is slightly a step a back (in terms of steps) and a step forward in strength (modified for my body).
New Goals for July:
- 6500 steps 6 days a week
- 10 min strength training 6 days a week (rotating areas–this will be done at first just using my own body weight and then moving into weights)
- 7th day just take a walk as long as I feel fine. This could be 10 min to an hour. It should be done more at a normal walking pace—this is kind of a “rest” exercise.
- Diet: 90% Mediterranean Diet minus Nightshade Vegetables
- Vitamins every day!
The July Virtual 5k and 10k Race Series + 1 mile Fun Run finish line (for after you complete the “race”)
