#FitReaders: Weekly Check-in July 1

#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 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!

  1. I was really slacking off with my workouts and activity but I think I’m back on track. I started with the 10 minute targeted workouts again and my 1 mile walk with the dogs and I’m building back up.

    I had a setback with my back after ALA. All that walking and standing kills me.

  2. I’m checking in! I started doing some body-weight strength-training, too…I just need to do something, and figured I would start with that.

  3. I think it is so important to be able to adjust goals of all kinds. I am aiming for 50 ooo steps a week and to start incorporating a stretch or two and one or two little strength training things in July. Steps achieved in past week.

    • Yeah! Yep I think sometimes you need to sit down with yourself and be honest about goals. I tend to make big sweeping ones and then tweak them. These are my tweaked ones and much more attainable 🙂

    • (((((((((( hugs ))))))))))))))))

      I am trying hard to give them up but tomatoes are hard for me (as are yellow/red bell peppers) *sigh*

      They think RA but haven’t determined it yet.

      • I really hope it isn’t RA! ((HUGS)) Just as a suggestion Super Oxide Dismutase (SOD) is an antioxidant that is used with RA. You can find it at a natural food store and it might be something to look up. I can’t take it but I can take the components so my body has to make it itself and it has helped. Might be something to take to the doc for discussion. Hope you feel better!

  4. I walked as far as the mailbox out front and my Little Free Library on the street at the end of my driveway. That is all my bad feet and arthritis will allow me to do, but I am sure I have already walked 600 steps today just around the house. Does that count?
    Am eating healthy–always cook from scratch and limit the eating out.

    • Every single step counts! 🙂 🙂 Seriously that is awesome and movement of any kind is good. That being said always listen to your body and do only what you can 🙂

  5. I don’t really have specific goals for July, except for to keep exercising almost every day, and to eat healthier. I’m sorry to hear about your arthritis–my mom has it really bad in her wrists and hands so I know that it must be really painful! Good luck with your new goals! They still sound like really great workouts!

    • Those are big goals 🙂 That eating healthier thing is hard LOL . Arthritis sucks plus mine is in my feet and hands so it makes for some uncomfortable moments. I am working through them!

  6. My goals for July are:

    70,000 steps a week. I learned in June that some days, I just don’t get to 10K. But other days, I can get to 11 or 12K, so for the week it averages out to 10K steps a day. I’m happy with that!

    Also, continue to be mindful of eating healthy!

    • I think that is a fantastic tweak to goals plus you should always have a “rest” day. 🙂 That means different things to different people but in your case I think you nailed it!
