#FitReaders: Weekly Check-in July 22

Another week of heat, heat, heat and there doesn't seem to be an end in sight any time soon...the good news is that in 2 weeks, I'll be at the beach for a week and I won't care!!! In the meantime, I've been getting up and taking each dog on a longer walk first thing in the morning - they are really loving it and then I don't feel bad when we just go for shorter walks in the afternoon and evening - even they aren't liking the heat!

Update on July goals:
  • 10K steps M-F, at least 7,500 steps on the weekend - 4/5  & 2/2
  • Strength-training exercises 3x a week - Done!
  • Yoga 2-3 times a week - at least 15 minutes - Done!
  • Eat mindfully - continue to drink a minimum of 64 oz of water, limit caffeine intake, up intake of fruits and veggies, up intake of protein at each meal, limit intake of sugar. - This week was better than last week - though with the heat, I have to admit, I didn't really feel much like eating!

Jul 16:  10,080 steps (15 min yoga)

  1. Dunno how you do it in the heat

    1. Slowly...and early walks outdoors or indoor walks if during the day :)

  2. WOW a 10k in this weather! Great job!

    1. Oh, I forgot to indicate that the 10K was done at the gym on the way could I do one outdoors in this heat, unless I walked at 4am, but it's still dark out ;)
