Readers’ workouts


Joy from Joy’s Book Blog has taken over a workout project from another blog that she now calls Readers’ workouts. This is what Joy says about it:

The idea is that each Tuesday, we report our exercise progress for the previous week and state goals for the upcoming week. Setting and tracking goals as part of a community is great for both accountability and support. Set up your goals and reporting system in any way that works for you.

The target group are people who are more bookish than athletic; guess what! That sounds just like me. Athletic I am not! Bookish? Rather! Of course, Joy’s own account of her workout in March made me hang my head in shame, but you have to start somewhere. Also, because I have a thing for online tools, I remembered that Judith mentioned an online site the other day where you can track your calories, workouts, progress etc. which sounded just like my cup of tea. It is called My Fitness Pal.

So the most important things (except the actual working out part) are already under way.

  • Join at Joy’s site
  • Register at My Fitness Pal 
  • Determine how often I want to work out 
  • Get a swimming pal 
  • Set a date to start (after Easter)

You feel like working out? Check out Readers’ workouts at Joy’s Book Blog!

  1. Very good, Rikki! I hope you get started soon. I used to go swimming but I don’t like the fact that after finishing, I have to get dressed in a cold(ish) changing room. I used to go with a friend and maybe I will again. I now mainly cycle to places, walk around the nearby lake for some extra exercise calories and do a lot of gardening.

    Good luck!

  2. I don’t mind all the rigmarole that goes with swimming, :). Gardening is a great exercise, but we don’t have a garden which is all for the better because I hate all the work it involves.
    I hope to start swimming this weekend; I have caught a terrible cold, but want to be fit again by the end of the week.


  3. Thanks for stopping by! I hope you feel better soon. Being sick is no fun at all.

    I use My Fitness Pal and I love it. It’s the best tracking software I’ve used and I’ve used a lot, lol. I hope you like it and that it works for you.

    • Jenni, I am terrible at tracking calories and food, but I hope to use it to track my exercise and my weight progress. I am glad to hear that you like it.
