#FitReaders: Weekly Check-in August 12

Vacation is just about over...I still have Monday off :)  The week at the beach was just what I needed to recharge my batteries...I read, I relaxed and I just chilled...and now I'm ready to get back to a normal workout routine. My plan is to play around with a bunch of different workouts these next two weeks to see what I like and what fits in best with my work schedule...which changes as of September 1st - I'm going back to work full-time then, something I haven't done since before I got married(7 years ago)...EEEKKK!!!! But, it comes with a pretty big promotion and I'm kinda excited about it, so we'll see how it all goes - and I'll be working 4 days in the office and 1 day from home, so not too shabby!!!

 My August Goals:
* Because I will be starting my training schedule for the big walk in September, I am using August as a "rest month."
  • 10K steps M-F, at least 7,500 steps on the weekend - Vacation last week, wasn't tracking
  • 30 minutes of active walking every day - Vacation last week, wasn't tracking
  • Eat mindfully - Did pretty well with this while on vacation!!!

Here's how my week went:     
Aug  6:  10,795 steps
Aug  7:  7,419 steps
Aug  8:  12,611 steps
Aug  9:  10,638 steps

Aug 10:  9,055 steps

Aug 11:  5
,673 steps 
Aug 12: 
5,908 steps 
Total Steps: 62,099 steps
Audiobooks listened to this week:
