#FitReaders: Weekly Check-in

#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 was bad! I lost some weight which should be a good thing but I am pretty sure I aggravated my back instead of healing it. Here is the thing: Listen to your drs! So last week I averaged 7200 steps a day–I was supposed to knock it down to around 4000 with a max of 6000 and no more than 5 min of “hard” walking at a time. I didn’t follow that and when I went to see her today, I was told two weeks of 4000 to 5000 steps with rest. So I will be doing that. It sucks but I feel like I don’t want to worsen it. I want to heal so I will be following rules. Y’all hold me to it!

How did you do?

  1. Yes you really have to listen and follow your Dr’s advice even if you’re starting to feel better, you don’t want to be left with a chronic long-term problem . Take it easy Felicia 🙂

  2. It’s so hard to not be active once you get on a roll, but it’s so important to listen to your doctor. Better to do that and be on limited activity for a short while than to be injured for a longer time or god-forbid permanently! Take it easy, baby your back and you’ll be back to regular exercise in no time!!!

    Not my most shiney week. Seemed very busy, too much sitting and I was a snack monster. Fitbit did tell me that I have walked across New Zealand, which is cool. Not beating myself up, as it is what is it is.

    I read an article this week about how sleeping in a knees up position helps lower back pain. Either on your side knees toward chest, or propping pillow under heads and knees.

    Sorry to hear about your back. No more Fitbit cheering for you!

    this has actually be a great week for me. I got my “lake” portion of my teaching signed of for my scuba instructor, I got 12k steps on 6 days even with being in our office in training and one night with a meeting until 9pm.

    I have stayed on my training schedule but whole 30 and being in the office wasn’t happening. I plan on starting again in a few weeks. I did loose about 6 lbs total in 4 weeks. I need to do my measurements but I know my clothes are much looser.

  5. Ugh injuries suck 🙁 I have this pain in my foot that I’ve been semi-ignoring the past three weeks, hoping it would go away. Its not – it hurts worse and I’m starting to think I have a stress fracture from running and also the jumping in water aerobics. 🙁 couldn’t run today, it hurt so bad and I’m going to have to stay off it ad much as possible. So I sort of know where you’re at. Good luck & take care of you!

  6. Hope your back feels better! I know it’s tough to listen to the doctor and to not push yourself. Rest up; take the time to read a lot 🙂

    My week was good. Didn’t make it to the gym as much as I would have liked; crummy winter weather. But I’m still exceeding my step goal, so as long as I can keep that up, I’m happy. Trying to eat better, adding more veggies than I normally do. I’ve been REALLY bad about my water intake; gotta improve that!

    Hope everyone had a great week! If you’re on the East Coast, stay warm this weekend!!

  7. As much as you might feel ok to do it, which I totally understand…. Sometimes it’s just not worth hurting yourself more. I hope your back feels better soon. Mine is not the best at the moment either and I’ve had to ease up a little too.
    Rest up and have a great week.
