#FitReaders: Weekly Check-in March 17


It was a relatively quiet week...despite the crazy snowstorm we had. We ended up with 15 inches - not as much as they were originally predicting, but enough to be a complete nuisance and shut everything down for two days! And since it's stayed cold since, the snow is taking it's time melting. Hopefully that's the last of the snow - I want the warm weather we had only days before this storm came!

As for exercise...I was out shoveling every day - we had quite the fiasco with our plow guy - needless to say, we will not be using him again! It was a good workout, arms and back were quite sore and I ended up with a ton of steps :) This week I'm hoping to make it to a yoga class or two and I'm really loving doing the Leslie Sansone Walking DVD's again - just to change things up a bit!

March 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 - met

  1. We did not have our plow guy this year. It was so expensive last year and he was not even here that much! But he came when there was not really the limit to come. He destroyed a few things. Yeah, we can do it ourselves

  2. Great job on meeting your weekly goals... And shoveling certainly counts. Sorry about the troubles with the plow guy - hope nothing was damaged. We don't have a plow guy, but we did have a neighbor who helped push the end of our driveway piles with his plow, so that helped a lot!
