#FitReaders Check-in #14

#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!

I had a good week. My co-workers and I are still going to the gym on our lunch hour. I just missed one day because of meetings. On Sunday I made my meals for the week which saved me a lot of time.  Now I just need to find more recipes.

Here is what I did:

  • Friday – gym (20 minutes on treadmill, 10 minutes on weights for arms)
  • Saturday – 30 minute walk
  • Sunday – 30 minute walk
  • Monday – rest
  • Tuesday – 30 minutes on stationary bike
  • Wednesday – gym (20 minutes on treadmill, 10 minutes on weights for arms)
  • Thursday  – gym (20 minutes on treadmill, 10 minutes on elliptical machine)

 

This week I earned $6 toward books I can purchase. Total earned so far is $49!

I’ve spent some of my money on books and I also bought a water infuser bottle from Blogilates.  It finally arrived this week and here is a mini-review of the product:

Water bottle

Likes:

  • The infusing compartment for the fruit and vegetables is a nice length (it is longer than other bottles I have seen).  And the slits are not too wide so seeds from lemons or oranges should not get into your drinking water.
  • The hydration goals are fun and a good way to track your drinking. It helps me on my busy days at work when I forget to take a break.

Dislikes:

  • The carry strap was broken when it arrived and I didn’t bother with trying to return it since I wouldn’t have used it. But after filling up the bottle with water I don’t think that strap would have been strong enough to carry the bottle.
  • The lid claims to be spill proof but the spout doesn’t have a tight seal when closed. I’ve knocked over my bottle by accident and water came out.

 

But overall it is a cute bottle and I have been using it everyday.

How was your week?

  1. Congrats on your week !
    I love that bottle, it’s too bad that the seal is not firmly closed but if you don’t carry the bottle around in a backpack or else, it shouldn’t be much of a bother 🙂

      Thanks Iza! Definitely don’t put in your backpack lol. But I really like this and I like the added flavor for the water. It’s still a new design so it still has to work out it’s kinks.
