Fit Mommy Check-In


Another week has gone by, and it’s Fit Mommy  check-in time to share how I’ve done with my extremely modest fitness goals.  Fatigue-wise, it  was a pretty good week, with only one bad day and one slow day, so I was able to do quite well.


Here is my list of weekly goals, along with what I managed this week. 

  1. follow my doctor’s suggestions and not try to exercise like a healthy person Yes!! Although it took a lot of will-power to stop chipping ice after 3 minutes—see #4.
  2. go for a wee walk most days  Yes!! I missed only the two tired days.
  3. stretch 3 or 4 times a week, one repetition only, using the Curves stretching guide my mom forgot at our place, and my old Callanetics book  Almost.  I stretched 2 days, and couldn’t find the Curves stretching guide, so I may have missed a few stretches.  Oh well, it’s better than nothing.
  4. move my arms around more, including up and over my head a few times if it’s a good day Yes!!  I loaded groceries into the van, chipped ice off the deck steps (2 separate days, about two steps each day) and did some ‘real’ exercises on two days.
  5. concentrate on eating lots of vegetables, because they make me feel more energetic Yes!! At almost every meal!!  I think it’s helping.

Being part of the Fit Mommy  group has encouraged me to concentrate a bit more on the fitness aspect of my life than in the past, and I think it will really benefit me.  I’m so glad Denise encouraged me to join.  (Thanks, Denise!)


I want to add one more goal to my list.  I should also completely relax my muscles regularly. How regularly?  Well, at least once a day for 20 minutes, I’ve been told.   Now, progressive relaxation is just not me; I’m too impatient and often too tense.  Committing to 20 minutes a day is NOT going to work.  But I’ll try to do it 2 or 3 times next week for just a few minutes.  After all, every little bit should help, right?


Thank you for joining me for Tea Time.  Have a great and active day, with lots of veggies!

    Keep it up. Small steps can make a big difference. I love that you are paying attention to your body. Eating vegetables makes you feel better, so you are eating more vegetables. Great job!

    I am so glad to hear you are able to do some exercise. I think it is wise to add more veggies. Doing this meme IS making me think more about my overall health & exactly how my body is feeling throughout the day. Good luck with doing the relaxation. I should look into doing more of that. I had a yoga video once I did each evening about eight years ago and I loved it- I want to find a new copy of that! Anyway, thanks for coming by and encouraging me! Heather Q-S
