#FitReaders: Weekly Check-in August 5

I'm in the middle of a 2-week vacation...the first week was spent at home and the second week will be spent at the beach!!! Because I plan on doing nothing more than sitting on the beach, resting, relaxing and reading and enjoying a cocktail or two (my favorite at the moment is Verdi Champagne), I made sure to get some good workouts in this week - I did a 5K in every day and even got in my 10K for the month!

 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
  • 30 minutes of active walking every day
  • Eat mindfully

Here's how my week went:     
Jul 30:  8,085 steps
Jul 31:  7,596 steps
Aug  1:  15,097 steps
(5K - 3.55 Charity Miles for MS Society)
Aug  2:  17,366 steps (5K - 3.18 Charity Miles for MS Society)

***In March of 2017, I'll be doing the CHALLENGE WALK MS in Savannah, GA. It is a three-day, 50-mile walk that tests your strength and your spirit, and makes an extraordinary difference in the lives of people with MS and their families.

  1. That was a great plan to get in a lot of walking before the beach. But you can walk the beach, too! With a cocktail in hand - or make sure you put your beach chair far from the bar/cabana... steps back and forth! ;-) Enjoy!

  2. WOWZER! So glad you got them both in before the beach but I bet you gets loads of beach walking in too. Though I expect loads of laying around too :)
