#FitReaders: Weekly Check-in November 13

This week was a pretty good week. I made it to the gym twice - once to work out with a trainer. My gym gives you one free session when you renew your membership so I used my session this week. The trainer really listened to what I wanted. I'm quite intimidated by all the machines on the floor, so we focused on using just one machine that I could do most exercises from. It was a great session - we ended up doing a total body workout in an hour and I was so sore the next two days!!! 

This week and next week, FitBit is donating $1million to across 3 charities with #FitForGood - all you have to do is sign up and select a charity - American Heart Association, MS (National Multiple Sclerosis Society), American Diabetes Association. All your steps will be counted and the charity with the most steps will be given $500,000, the 2nd place charity will be given $350,000 and the 3rd place charity will be given $150,000. If you have a fitbit, have you signed up to contribute your steps? So far, as of this morning, 11.09 billion steps have been counted...

Here's how my week went: 
Nov  7:  5,460 steps
Nov  8:  6,025 steps
Nov  9:  45 minutes on treadmill at gym,
14,848 steps
