#FitReaders Check-In

  • This check-in is for June 3rd – 9th.
  • Frozen grapes on a hot Texas afternoon are AMAZING! 🙂
  • It was another slow week and I didn’t even come close to meeting my goal of averaging 9K steps per day.  However, I did accomplish my 5K for June:

June 2016 5K

  • I’m fed up with the weight loss program I’m on through the VA.  Weighing myself every day is more discouraging than anything else and the information is often outdated.  For instance, it’s strongly suggested to use artificial sweeteners to reduce calories and to eliminate as much fat as possible.  Also, I was told by the RN that strength training won’t help me lose weight.
  • Once I’m done with the program I’m going to sign up for the hopefully more up to date one offered for free through my employer.  I’m also going to start a Couch to 5K program because, so far, my knees have been able to handle walking a 5K within an hour.  It’s the pads of my feet that are having issues, and, as soon as I can, I’m buying some new shoes to hopefully remedy that problem.
  • If you’d like to add me as a friend on FitBit, you can find me HERE.

  1. I’ve heard a lot of people love the Couch to 5K program…I’m not a runner, but it seems to be a good program. Hope it works for you! Maybe try insoles for your shoes – they may provide extra cushion for the pads of your feet?

    Hope you have a great week!
