#FitReaders ~ February 9 – 15 update

Posted February 21, 2020 by Berls in FitReaders / 2 Comments


Fit Readers is a group/challenge run by Felicia @ Geeky Bloggers Book Blog and Jen @ That’s What I’m Talking About, designed to support and encourage each other on our health and fitness goals. In years past I’ve participated but just done quick updates on my Sunday Post. This year, I want my goals to be a top priority, so I’m going to share my updates in a separate, more detailed weekly post. The day it appears will probably fluctuate, though, so just keep your eyes out for it 🙂

February 9-15 Update

I finally lost weight y’all!! After weeks of either gaining or maintaining, I finally lost weight. Down 5 pounds! I’m trying not to focus too much on the 5 and more on the loss, as next week I might not lose as much and I don’t want to be discouraged. But I’m glad to feel like my hard work is finally reaping some results.

Emotional Health Goal

Add the Morter March back into my miracle morning.

This past week I MADE myself do my morter march, but I wasn’t feeling it. But I also was feeling super emotionally fragile. I met with my life coach (for lack of a better word… maybe she’s a Reiki? IDK what to call her) and when I was on her table working I literally just broke and started sobbing. It was a really good, cleansing cry and since then (so current week, rather than the 9-15th week) my morter march has felt a lot more focused and productive.

Fitness Goal

Add one C25K run into every weekend.

I got in my C25k on Sunday (so technically the 16th… but part of the 15th’s weekend). It was week 2, day 1 and not hard at all! I was pushing Dante and did the run in the apartment complex parking lot basically.

Eating Goal

Record every bite/sip with a photo on the Better App for nutritionist to see.

I’m doing so much better thank to this. I’ve seen a dramatic increase in my vegetable intake and just a lot more consciousness about what I’m eating. Perhaps that’s where the 5lbs went? Trying to really keep it up!

What are your fitness goals for 2020? For February? Happy Health and Fitness!
