#FitReaders Check-In

  • This check-in is for January 5th – 11th.
  • I haven’t had any problems with sticking to the “low fat” side of my diet, but I haven’t been able to get 35 grams of fiber a day yet.  I get close, but without using a fiber supplement, it’s difficult for me to eat enough food to hit that number.  I haven’t used a supplement yet because I’m allowing my body at least this week to adjust.
  • I also haven’t been able to keep my calories down to 1,200 per day.  However, I have managed to eat fewer calories than I burn every day, and well under 2,000.  I have already lost a couple of pounds as a result (I’m sure all the water I’m drinking is helping, too).
  • Part of the Fiber35 program is resistance band exercises and cardio.  I’ve managed to do the cardio, but on the mornings I was supposed to do the exercises, I turned off the alarm and went back to sleep.  Saturday is cardio day, but I’m going to do the exercises that day as well to help make up for my lack of motivation this week.

#FitReaders Check-In

  • This check-in is for December 29th, 2017 – January 4th, 2018.
  • My first check-in for 2018!  I finished up 2017 with just over 500 miles walked.  This year, I’m hoping to at least double that.
  • 23 and Me is doing a study on the possible connections between weight and genetics that starts on Monday.  I signed up and got put into the high fiber/low fat group.  I was lucky enough to find an excellent, non-gimmicky book about eating a high fiber diet at a Half Price Books store, The Fiber35 Diet by Brenda Watson, C.N.C.  I’ll be using it to help me stick to my diet for the next 12 weeks.

  • This check-in is for December 22nd – 28th.
  • This is the final check-in for 2017, and even though check-ins will no longer be required in 2018, I’m still going to do them.
  • I got quite a bit of walking in while I was in Arizona for Christmas.  Between walking through the airports, the little town where the Boyfriend’s Mom lives, and going to see the Luminaria, I chalked up a lot of steps!
  • I’m less than 5 miles from hitting 500 miles this year and 19 cents away from my tiny goal of raising $5 for charity.  Oh well, hopefully I’ll do better next year.

  • This check-in is for December 15th – 21st.
  • Walking in the mornings did not happen this week.  It’s that crazy time of year when I’m too tired to get up at 5 am when I don’t HAVE to get up that early.

  • This check-in is for November 17th – 23rd.
  • I’ve been sick most of this week 😦  I started to feel a little better yesterday, and I’m sure most of that was all the great food and company, but I was still in no shape to do any trotting, let alone a Turkey Trot.

  • This check-in is for November 10th – 16th.
  • To put it plainly, this has been a rough week, motivation-wise, and it shows in my stats.
  • One nice thing is that I’m only a mile shy of finishing stage 9 on the Appalachian Trail.

  • This check-in is for November 3rd – 9th.
  • I missed 2 days of walking this week thanks to having to go into the office to work.  However, I was less than 7K steps from meeting my goal, which is pretty good considering I was barley getting 25K steps a week before I set my new goal.
  • I nailed my Active Minutes goal, which means I’ll be raising it for next week.  I’m think 245 minutes is a good step up since that’s only 15 more minutes than I did this week.
