#FitReaders: Weekly Check-in January 13


This cold I have is one stubborn cold! But, I think it's finally easing up - and I am starting to feel more like myself!!! While I've been sick, I've been pretty much housebound, so I've been looking around Pinterest for workouts and found a ton of yoga flows. I'm hoping to start doing some of them on a regular basis. My gym offers yoga classes, but I never seem to make it to the classes :( Maybe this will be the jumpstart I need!

January Goals:
  • 10K steps M-F, at least 7,500 steps on the weekend - met
  • 30 minutes of active walking every day, M-F - met
  • Eat mindfully/eat enough (esp. in important while training!) - met
My training plan for the Challenge Walk MS I'll be doing in March of 2017:

  • 4 miles, 2 days a week, interval training - met
  • Distance walks (distances will vary, try to do 2 days, back-to-back ) - didn't do this week
  • Try to attend one yoga class a week - didn't make it to class, but did do some yoga one day at home

Here's how my last week went:    

Jan  7:  11,744 steps
Jan  8:  14,840 steps + 15 minutes Yoga

Jan  9:  10,409 steps 
Jan 10: 10,398 steps
Jan 11:  15,456 steps
(5K+ - 4.33 Charity Miles for MS)
Jan 12:  20
,699 steps (10K - 6.29 Charity Miles for MS)
Jan 13:  10
,743 steps 

Total Steps: 86,173 steps

Audiobooks listened to last week (since I'm not much of a music fan, I listen to books while I walk):
  • Finished The Shadow Sister by Lucinda Riley, narrated by Jessica Preddy
  • Started Lost Girls by Angela Marsons, narrated by Jan Cramer

How did your week go? You can find this week's link-up here.

***In March, 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. I hope you feel better. You still did a good job this week even though you didn't feel good. I like doing yoga, but don't get to as much as I'd like. Good luck!

  2. I hope that you can get some yoga done at home, I am horrid with that

  3. Oh you are doing so well despite a cold. Yoga and home can be just as good and more likely to happen! Love the walks you have got planned. I am doing a little and getting back into the swing after I dropped out last year. A little to keep me going is good!

  4. Nice work on the January goals and trying yoga at home! While you are sick (again?!). I hope you feel better / get better soon!
