#FitReaders Check-In 7

#FitReaders is hosted by Geeky Bloggers Book Blog and That’s What I’m Talking About . This is a great way to motivate each other to get and stay moving!

This week I did ok.  I started off strong but then I felt sick one day and it ruined my routine.  This week I started Blogilates 30 Day Flat Abs Challenge but I missed a day so I’m going to start over.  I also started Blogilates 6 Min Sexy Arms Workout.  I like that there are no weights with this workout so I can do this anywhere.  I do plan to switch to some exercises with weights to build up my strength.

Here is what I did last week:

  • Friday – rest
  • Saturday – 45 minute walking/jogging
  • Sunday – 30 minute walking, 30 minute stationary bike. Day 1 Ab Challenge, Arm workout.
  • Monday – 45 minute walking/jogging. Day 2 Ab Challenge.
  • Tuesday – 30 minute walking, 30 minute stationary bike. Day 3 Ab Challenge
  • Wednesday – rest (I felt sick so I missed the Ab challenge)
  • Thursday – 45 minute walking/jogging. Day 1 Ab Challenge, Arm Workout

This week I earned $5 toward books I can purchase at the end of the month!

Here is one of the daily tips I received from work:

Walking with purpose

Why do you walk five times a week? For a stronger heart? Healthier bones? Stress relief? Whatever your reasons, the consistent devotion has a cost — time, energy, things you forgo. But the investment is worth it. So take ownership of your efforts — give them meaning.

  • Identify purpose.Inventory your emotional, psychological, and physical reasons for walking each day. Focus on the positive, and welcome each walk as a way to feel your best.
  • Dig deeper.Examine nuances that layer your attitude. Are you inspired by friends or family? Focused on specific goals? Leading the charge or following suit? Understanding your impetus will enhance conviction.
  • Share your experience.Evangelize the non-walkers in your life. Declare the importance as well as the advantages, and you’ll deepen your own commitment, too.
  • Register for charity walks.Dedicate each one to someone specific.

Whether you’re out for a carefree stroll or training for a 5K, embrace the unique driving force that spurs your pedestrian spirit.


How was your week?

      Thanks Grace! I usually get lost in my thoughts when I’m exercising but this article was a nice reminder.
