Getting Active (The Sunday Post)

Posted May 17, 2020 in Life Updates, Memes & Tags / 4 Comments

The Latest in my Life

I’ve been getting active this week as I’ve finally run out of excuses not to exercise. My main goals are to feel more energetic, increase my stamina and improve my overall health and fitness. I’d like to get back within a healthy weight range again, but I’m not focusing too much on the numbers on the scale. How I feel in my own skin is more important to me.

I’ve been using the Wii Fit and EA Active II games as I enjoy the step aerobics routines on there and can easily track time spent and calories burned. I’m mixing it up with things like Zumba, aerobics, weights, walking and virtual classes like Mr Motivator. Feel free to add me as a friend on My Fitness Pal or FitBit if you’re also on a fitness journey.

My online reading groups have gone well so far and have been quite enjoyable to run. I’ve also done a lot of phonics and literacy learning games with my daughter to help prepare her for starting school in September.

This weekend, I took some time to review my goals for the year, since covid-19 has thrown me a bit of a curve-ball. I made a new Pinterest board called 2020 Vision to inspire me and keep me focused.

No blogging, writing or reading news this week as I’ve mainly been focused on getting active and playing with my daughter. There are so many things I want to do but I feel like the days just fly by and I never get all the things done.


We watched Iron Man 2 and Thor as part of our Marvel Movie Marathon so it will be The Incredible Hulk up next week. We also watched some Studio Ghibli anime and How to Train Your Dragon 2.

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Reviewer.

It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog. This is your news post, so personalize it! Include as much as you want or as little. Be creative, it can be a vlog or just a showcase of your goodies. Link up once a week or once a month, you decide. Book haul can include library books, yard sale finds, arcs and bought books..share them!

  1. I really should break out the WII Fit stuff, I always forget we have them! I’ve been walking though so at least I’m getting SOME exercise lol. Your Pinterest board idea sounds pretty awesome.

    I need to watch some anime. I always hear good things. There’s so much out there!

    Have an awesome week!

  2. I find that I must exercise as soon as I get up before I even look at my computer or phone! Otherwise I get distracted and start making excuses and before I know it half the day is over and I just am too involved or tired to exercise. After that, I make my dinner and put it away .. otherwise, we tend to eat sandwiches.
