#FitReaders Weekly Check In (7)

Hey everyone!  Tonight I'm feeling pretty good about my fitness goals because I actually lost weight (only a pound but still).  I've been at the same weight for the month of July so it was nice to see the numbers go down.  Last week was so bad with regards to eating.  There were a ton of work luncheons and family obligations and I think I ate out at least once a day (if not twice) almost every day.  Needless to say, I was not surprised that my weight didn't go down.  I've lost approximately 8 lbs and am hoping to keep on losing; my goal is 4 more pounds by the middle of September.

I have stuck with working out five days a week which I'm super proud of.  Both last week and this  I ran for 40 minutes three times a week and did Level 3 of the 30 Day Shred twice per week.  I HATE Level 3!  It's hard but not in a good way; the moves are incredibly complex and sometimes I think I need a professional showing me proper form for the moves.  I'll do it for one more week and then I'm going to try out Jillian's Ripped in 30 DVD.  I don't love Jillian Michaels but she has good workouts that aren't super long (I don't have the time for an hour long video).

With regard to reading, this week I've finished An Immortal Descent by Kari Edgren, Midnight Bayou by Nora Roberts and The Chalice by Nancy Bilyeau.  I'm currently reading The End of Tsarist Russia by Dominic Lieven.

How are things going with your fitness goals?  Have a great weekend!

  1. Congrats on the weight loss!!! It's a hard journey, but I'm a firm believer of slow and steady - it's the best way to keep it off for the duration. I have a hard time with workout videos and feel the same way - I feel like I'm super uncoordinated and definitely need someone to make sure I'm doing the moves correctly. I did find some short videos on PopSugar that I like doing they are 5 minutes and target specific body parts so I can do a few of them each day.

    I usually walk - I try to walk outdoors when I can and since I'm not a big music fan, I listen to audio books when walking. It's a great way to get in more reading time!!! I'm in the middle of re-reading or in this case re-listening to Stieg Larsson's Trilogy in anticipation of the release of the new book in September.
