#FitReaders: Weekly Check-in April 29

So, not only did I get in 1 10K in for April...I did 5 this past week...I just decided that I would do one every day and you know what, I felt great doing them, plus I was able to finish 2 audio books this week because of the extended walking time!!! 

On the food side, I didn't have that great a week...I ate horribly on Wednesday due to running around and meetings running late and then ended up with a killer headache all day Thursday, plus just felt like crap! On top of that, my one dog had to have surgery to remove a cyst on her eyelid, so I was a bit stressed - not a good combo. But it definitely tells me that I really do need to pay attention to what I eat and make sure I drink enough water - if not, I definitely feel it.
Here's how my week went:     
Apr 23:  7,688 steps
Apr 24:  10,372 steps
Apr 25:  19,057 steps
(10K - 6.5 Charity miles for Girls on the Run; 30 min yoga at home)
Apr 26:  17,483 steps (10K -6.5 Charity miles for Girls on the Run; 15 min yoga at home)

Apr 27:  20,112 steps (10K - 6.51 Charity miles for Girls on the Run)

  1. This weeks weekly hustle definitely helped me hit all the goals this week, I was so knackered by Saturday, that I didn't go out for a walk at all! But I think I'll be ready for this weeks challenge. And I hope your dog's doing better! I hope you have a great week! :)

  2. Oh my! So sorry about your dog. Hope he's okay and that you are back in the swing of things. And WOWZA!! Great job on all the GOTR 10Ks!! *high fives*

  3. Your step challenge has kicked both Jasprit and I into highgear, Kris! I'm not sure I'll do as well this next week, because Stagecoach knocked me out. I'm hoping it was just the dust and wind and I'll get it out of my system today.

    Hope your dog is all better! The steps help compensate even when you have a day eating horribly. :)

  4. That's amazing you did all those 10k's, no wonder your steps went through the roof! Hope your dog is ok. And it's so hard not to comfort eat when stressed but at least it didn't affect your exercise.
