#FitReaders ~ January 5 – 11 Update

Posted January 17, 2020 by Berls in FitReaders / 4 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 🙂

January 5-11 Update

I feeling a little frustrated because I feel like I’ve done a pretty good job so far this year, but my weight is not reflecting it at all. I know the scale is not a great measurement tool and I try to ignore it, but it’s hard. I want to get down to my goal weight so badly.

Here’s how I did last week with my health goals.

Emotional Health Goal

Goal: Do Miracle Morning Routine every day, even if I have to do an abbreviated form.

I’ve managed to do this EVERY DAY of the new year so far! I haven’t even abbreviated it, except skipping Exercise on rest days.

Fitness Goal

Goal: Eating Goal

Goal: Get ready for and begin Whole 30 by January 15th. As I reported last week, I changed this goal after meeting with my nutritionist. So my goal for January is to quit the soda, once and for all.

I drank a soda on Sunday, Tuesday, and Friday. However I didn’t have it until the day was almost over on Sunday and shared soda with my husband the other two days, which is a huge improvement.

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

      I feel your frustration, Berls – but keep up the good work. I know a lot of times for me, I tend to see results after a couple weeks, and it seems to take longer the older I get. Don’t let the lack of scale movement keep you from your goals!

      • Thanks Jen. At least I’m not gaining weight. And I KNOW the scale is not the best measure. But I just really want to see that movement! Good luck this week 🙂

    • Thanks Anne! I know my frustration is a little unrealistic and I’m trying to just focus on health not scale. But gah! I just want to lose the damn weight lol!

      Hope your week is going well!
