#FitReaders: Weekly Check-in July 8

It was a hot week and so it was hard to get motivated to do much...but I did end up doing a 5K outside in the heat in the afternoon - not sure what I was thinking when I decided to do that, but I sure was a hot mess after finishing that! I have a feeling I'm going to be doing a lot of my walks either at the gym or the mall for the foreseeable future!!!

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 is a work in progress, but I did pretty well this week!

  1. Nice goals :)
    I should set some too

    1. Thank you! It helps keep me focused and accountable :)

  2. Way to go on your goals! I need to do more upper body strength training, I keep slacking.

  3. Great job! And you've already gotten in 2 5k's! Summer seems to be harder for me to get goals and eat healthy. We can do it!
