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 🙂
Recommitting for May 2020
I THINK I’m doing a bit better this week than I have been overall since I found out I’m getting laid off. Taking care of Dante is easier (because I”m used to it? because he’s older? because I don’t care about my job so much? IDK) and I’m just trying to make it through life right now as happy as possible. Some days are happier than others.
Emotional Health Goal
Write down 3 things I’m grateful for daily.
I skipped Sunday (Mother’s Day) because I did NOTHING that day – which I was immensely grateful for lol! Otherwise, I’ve done really well writing down my gratitude. It is harder some days to come up with 3 things, which actually helps me to sit back and realize I’m neglecting to appreciate the basics that not everyone has – like a safe place to live and our health. And that’s good for me to remember.
3 times a week, do a real workout.
I’m continuing to do my twice daily walks – and I’ve managed to turn 3 of them a week into a C25K run. And it FEELS GOOD. I need to run.
Eat 1 vegetable or fruit and get 1 high protein meal daily.
Seriously, does wine count as a fruit? Even without counting the wine, I’ve managed to get in at least 1 fruit OR vegetable every day. Thinking forward… I need to choose veggies or fruits over the easy to grab chips and cookies. We’ll see what the scale has to say when I weigh in (I weigh in the 1st of the month only now, since I obsess).
