#FitReaders Check-In: August 18, 2017

#FitReaders Check-In: August 18, 2017 Welcome to #FitReaders!! Felicia the Geeky Blogger and I are super excited to be co-hosting this fitness-oriented group for another year! Monthly Commit posts and weekly check-ins are with Felicia in July, August, and September. I will still have weekly check-ins on my blog as well. If you have any questions about #FitReaders, you can leave them in the comment section or email me at twimom227(at)gmail(dot)com. I check-in here every Friday, but my fitness week is Monday – Sunday. So my check-ins are always about a week behind. You can check-in however you want. Important links: The August Virtual 5k and 10k Race Series + 1 mile Fun Run finish line (for after you complete the “race”) #FitReaders information page #FitReaders 101 Facebook Group Last Week (August 7 – August 13, 2017): More of the same. Working out a good amount, eating more than I should (apparently), and not losing weight. I’m good with this pattern until after Labor Day. Then I have to see if I can take off these extra 5 pounds. But it was a fun week – both kids were gone to an overnight camp (first time!), so hubs and I took advantage. We went out for fine dining on Sunday; to North End (Boston) for Italian and Mike’s Pastries on Tuesday; and out with friends for surf-n-turf on Thursday. So… I can see why I didn’t lose any weight! My Movement*: Monday: 72 minutes yoga + 52 minutes walking, 10,836 steps/day – 5k finished Tuesday: 62 minutes walking, 16,443 steps/day – 5k finished Wednesday: 55 minutes walking, 14,775 steps/day – 5k finished Thursday: 62 minutes yoga + 50 minutes walking, 9,864 steps/day – 5k finished Friday: 34 minutes walking, 13,273 steps/day Saturday: 51 minutes walking, 12,996 steps/day – 5k finished Sunday: 32 minutes walking, 14,560 steps/day * I track two different goals. The first goal is a timed duration of exercise – moving with the intent to raise my heart rate and get in some cardiovascular work. This is what I’m mean when I say “45 minutes walking.” The second goal is total daily steps. This is from my Fitbit, which measures all steps from 12:00AM – 11:59PM, exercise included. August Goals: How did I do last week? Close all three “rings” in Apple Watch, 5 days per week – 7/5 Move with purpose (exercise) at least 30 minutes, 6 days per week – 7/6 Track my caloric intake using the LoseIt! app – 7/7 Get in some 5ks and yoga – at least one per...

I am back up that half pound I lost last week. Sure, I’m eating a bit more than my weekly allotment should be, but not excessively so. And I’m exercising like a mad woman. I closed all three Apple Watch rings on six days last week – finally taking a break from all the movement on Saturday because frankly, I was tired, worn out, and hurting. In the past, I would be losing weight with this kind of effort. I guess with age comes additional effort. *le sigh* My Movement*: Monday: 72 minutes yoga + 35 minutes walking, 9,316 steps/day Tuesday: 42 minutes walking, 12,243 steps/day Wednesday: 38 minutes walking + 35 minutes walking, 14,994 steps/day Thursday: 60 minutes yoga + 36 minutes walking, 12,732 steps/day Friday: 63 minutes walking, 12,732 steps/day – 5k finished Saturday: no exercise, 5,098 steps/day Sunday: 52 minutes walking, 12,474 steps/day – 5k finished * I track two different goals.

I managed to close all three Apple Watch rings (burn active calories, exercise 30 minutes, move during 12 hours each day) every day this week! However, on the food consumption side of things, I didn’t do as well. I did make better choices than when I was on vacation. And honestly, if I was at my goal weight, I would have been happy with my dietary selection. But when I’m trying to lose the weight I gained last month… they are not as good choices. I ended up being down 0.2 lbs, but I had been down over a pound during the week before going back up. My Movement*: Monday: 35 minutes elliptical, 8,487 steps/day Tuesday: 62 minutes yoga + 35 minutes walking, 10,200 steps/day Wednesday: 36 minutes walking, 16,416 steps/day Thursday: 40 minutes walking + 34 minutes walking, 14,419 steps/day Friday: 58 minutes yoga + 46 minutes walking, 11,574 steps/day – 5k finished Saturday: 51 minutes walking + 22 minutes walking, 13,369 steps/day – 5k finished Sunday: 70 minutes walking, 13,894 steps/day – 5k finished * I track two different goals.

I focused on getting in daily exercise and closing all three rings on my Apple Watch rather than getting in steps. It is a more rounded approach to my health – making sure I burn active calories rather than just move. I also ate well all but one day, when I had an awesome 1,000+ calorie burger and two martinis. Overall, I lost 1.4 lbs of the 7 lbs I gained this month on vacation. It’s a slow start, but I’m moving in the right direction! My Movement*: Monday: 75 minutes yoga + 38 minutes walking, 11,947 steps/day Tuesday: 54 minutes walking, 11,013 steps/day – 5k finished Wednesday: 50 minutes walking, 12,401 steps/day – 5k finished Thursday: 54 minutes walking, 11,547 steps/day – 5k finished Friday: 60 minutes yoga, 6,038 steps/day Saturday: 64 minutes walking, 13,175 steps/day – 5k finished Sunday: 51 minutes walking, 11,790 steps/day – 5k finished * I track two different goals.

So that messed up my steps and exercise big time. Plus, on the road, it’s fast food and quick snacks. I got home from vacation on Thursday July 13th, but then was gone for my son’s lacrosse tournament that whole weekend… So truly, my vacation/away time ended on July 16th. I did my weigh-in on Monday and I was up 7 lbs. I know that I just need to cut out all that crappy eating and I can lose the weight over the course of the next month. My Movement*: Monday: no exercise, 4,738 steps/day Tuesday: no exercise, 3,757 steps/day Wednesday: 53 minutes walking, 12,522 steps/day – 5k finished Thursday: no exercise, 4,328 steps/day Friday: 58 minutes walking, 13,668 steps/day – 5k finished Saturday: no exercise, 10,327 steps/day Sunday: 35 minutes walking, 12,014 steps/day * I track two different goals.

But right now, I’m looking back at last week, and I did pretty good. My neighbor (and good friend) is working getting fit, and so she’s been calling me to go walking. We go slower than my usual pace, but we go longer – I got in three 5K’s over the weekend!

You can leave a comment below and/or leave your name and website/link here! Last Week (June 12 – June 18, 2017): Gah… which way am I going? That is how I feel right about now. I had a fun week. It was the end of school for my kiddos. I took a day off and helped at my 5th grader’s final Field Day (then went out to lunch with some friends who also worked it). My girl also had a 5th Grade “graduation” (it was a recognition assemble), and I rounded out the week taking 11 of my Girl Scouts on a Camporee. There were 100 of us total. So not a lot of dedicated exercise, and not the best eating. But fun! I did gain 1.5 lbs this week. Now I’m just hoping to survive another 10 days until vacation!

You can leave a comment below and/or leave your name and website/link here! Last Week (June 5 – June 11, 2017): Wow… I don’t even remember last week. I was so busy, and I just now discovered that I didn’t even hit 10,000 steps on two of the days! Plus I didn’t walk a single 5k last week. I swear, my life is a whirlwind right now and I am just doing my best to keep up. I did eat more than I should have, and my weight is up slightly. It’s discouraging only because I am not taking care of myself and don’t really see myself taking the time to do so in the next couple of weeks. I need a vacation!
