Fit Readers 2016

Welcome to #FitReaders hosted by Geeky Bloggers Book Blog and That’s What I’m Talking About.

Carmel’s Week

Other than Sunday when I was a lazy slug (my Fitbit also died), I had an excellent week; I walked the dog before work Monday through Friday, increased my steps a bit on Saturday during my OT shift, and got my yoga on twice. I also managed to get at least 7 hours of sleep every night, so that helped boost my energy level, although I haven’t finished a book in over a week which isn’t an ideal trade-off in my opinion. LOL!

By The Numbers:
Friday: 51 active minutes, 9,918 steps, 6.92 km
Saturday: 46 active minutes, 8,249 steps, 5.76 km
Sunday: 980 steps, 0.68 km
Monday: 30 minutes of yoga, 104 active minutes, 10,875 steps, 7.59 km

    You guys are doing so well! I’ve got a pedometer on my phone and it just always depresses me by how little I walk. You guys have inspired me to hit my 10,000 mark for at least one week. I think the cold weather is keeping me from walking. Blah.

  2. Great job – love the “lazy slug” day of steps. My kids asked me how few steps they thought I could do and still manage through the day. I told them I didn’t want to find out! haha! Keep up the good work, both of you!
