#FitReaders: Weekly Check-in Jul 28

So I challenged myself to walk a minimum of 100 miles this month - and while the month isn't quite over, I'm psyched that I already hit the goal as of Friday!!! And to think, I wasn't even training for a race ;)  I think this is something that I will definitely do again, though not next month as I will be away one week and won't be doing much that week. I like having a goal to work towards!

This time next week, I'll be on vacation - a week at the beach is just what I need  - sun, the sand and some R&R!!! Because of this, my next check-in will be in 2 weeks :)
July Goals: 

  • 10K steps M-F, at least 7,500 steps on the weekend  - 5/5, 1/2
  • 30 minutes of active walking every day, M-F - 5/5 (thank goodness for having to walk the dogs everyday!)
  • Strength training (3/5 days) - Met
  • Eat mindfully/eat enough - Yes
Here's how last week went:    
Jul 22:  7,319 steps
Jul 23:  8,701 steps

  1. Looks like a great week and awesome month. When you said you had a goal of 100 miles - is that active walking miles or just "overall daily" miles? Impressive! I haven't thought about looking at my total miles for the month.

    1. 100 active miles! I have no idea what my overall daily miles are, but it is definitely higher considering I have the 2 dogs and take them out multiple times a day ;)

  2. Oops... I think Coco (one of my new kittens) just deleted my comment before it posted... Oh well. I did want to know if your 100 miles is active miles or daily miles. Impressive!
