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 23-29 Update
I started this week a little on the lazy side, doing a very basic version of my Miracle Morning on Sunday. But I got back at on Monday and this week I finished by Beach Body 8 week LIIFT 4 program, without ever missing a day! I plan to start it over next week (March 2), since I both got a good workout from it and was able to maintain it with my general schedule/routine.
Emotional Health Goal
Add the Morter March back into my miracle morning.
I did it every day except Monday. Overall, I’m not feeling it the way I did when I used to do my Mortar March, though. That was pre-Dante and I don’t know what’s not connecting, but after a month of doing it and not really feeling it, I’m going to drop it from my routine.
March Goal: Do breathing exercises for the “U-Unwind” in my WAKE UP miracle morning routine.
I had been doing a routine from my Gentle Birth App, but I think it’s time to transition to something else, since I find myself getting distracted and unfocused with it now.
Add one C25K run into every weekend.
My weekends are just too packed it seems. I WANT to do my runs, but I think they’re going to have to wait until Dante gets older maybe. I just really have so much to accomplish on the weekend, plus they’re my only chance to get rested.
March Goal: Get 10,000 steps daily.
I have ignored that daily step goal for years because my job was such that I easily got 15k steps a day. But now that I have a desk job, I have noticed I have some days that I am shy of that goal. And some weekend days I don’t even hit 5,000. So I want to refocus on that, making regular movement part of my day not just my workout.
Record every bite/sip with a photo on the Better App for nutritionist to see.
I’ve done excellent with this over the month and I HOPE it will pay off.
March Goal: Pay better attention to my beverages, specifically drinking hot chocolate only 3 times per week.
I’ve been doing really well with my eating, but drinks are another story. With the exception of soda, which I haven’t had for 2 months now (yay!!), I drink without thinking about the calories/sugar/etc. So I want to make myself aware of what I’m drinking. I have gotten into drinking multiple hot chocolates a day and that’s a problem. So I want to cut it to 3 times a week.
