Last Week (April 23 – April 29, 2018): May the 4th Be With YOU! Last week was school vacation week, and I worked part-time from home. There were lazy mornings, lots of snacking, and many rainy days. I did an okay job, and took a day of rest on Wednesday. I was so close to making my exercise goals for the month, missing only one day for closing all three rings, and missing the 10,000 steps two days. I also missed yoga last week after hurting my hip the previous week. Food-wise I snacked a lot. I also was at the New England RWA conference on Friday, which brought a few extra carbs and glasses of wine. But I did great on water consumption! The HabitMinder app is working great. My Movement*: Monday: 73 minutes walking, 13,454 steps/day Tuesday: 48 minutes walking, 17,424 steps/day – 5k finished Wednesday: no exercise, 4,790 steps/day Thursday: 34 minutes walking, 13,347 steps/day Friday: 54 minutes walking, 13,035 steps/day – 5k finished Saturday: 48 minutes walking, 11,936 steps/day – 5k finished Sunday: 53 minutes walking, 11,507 steps/day – 5k finished Goals for April: Did I meet my goals last week?

Info: #FitReaders information page #FitReaders 101 Facebook Group I check in here every Friday, but my fitness week is Monday – Sunday. So my check-ins are always about a week behind. Last Week (April 16 – April 22, 2018): Another decent week. I did really well five days, not as good two days. This lead to overeating on those two days, and no weight loss. I did hurt myself doing yoga (I think) and Saturday was in a lot of pain. But then it seemed to settle down, so I’ve been walking slower and watching to make sure I don’t get a serious injury. I’ve started using a new app… HabitMinder, and I really like it. You can monitor up to three habits for free, and it’s $4 for unlimited habits. It’s Apple Watch compatible, which I like. Right now I’m using it to track my water intake. You can set reminders throughout the day to help and can easy add amounts to help track. I like that you can create and track almost any habit – like reading, being kind, squats, etc. It’s a cool app and I look to try out more things soon. My Movement*: Monday: 60 minutes yoga + 30 elliptical walking, 8,541 steps/day Tuesday: 52 minutes walking, 12,053 steps/day – 5k finished Wednesday: 36 minutes walking, 11,724 steps/day Thursday: 60 minutes yoga + 32 minutes walking, 11,754 steps/day Friday: 56 minutes walking, 12,451 steps/day – 5k finished Saturday: 62 minutes walking, 13,586 steps/day – 5k finished Sunday: 45 minutes walking, 12,895 steps/day Goals for April: Did I meet my goals last week?

Last Week (April 9 – April 15, 2018): This past week was a pretty average week for me. I ate over my allotted calories… but not in one big meal out, it was more like a couple hundred each day. That’s not good because that leads to a constant need for more calories. My weight was up a little bit, but that’s to be expected with the extra calories. I did do really well on my exercise and water goals! My Movement*: Monday: 60 minutes yoga + 32 minutes walking, 11,494 steps/day Tuesday: 58 minutes walking, 11,370 steps/day – 5k finished Wednesday: 52 minutes walking, 12,904 steps/day – 5k finished Thursday: 60 minutes yoga + 37 minutes walking, 11,396 steps/day Friday: 50 minutes walking, 11,524 steps/day – 5k finished Saturday: 48 minutes walking, 11,253 steps/day – 5k finished Sunday: 47 minutes walking, 12,511 steps/day – 5k finished Goals for April: Did I meet my goals last week?

Last Week (April 2 – April 8, 2018): Coming into April, I was feeling a bit frustrated, not necessarily because of my progress, but because I wasn’t sticking with my goals and plan. But I did much better this first week of the new quarter. I stuck pretty close to my nutrition goals, only a couple hundred calories over my limit, and I did much better drinking and tracking my water this week. I’m making more of an effort to have the water in my hand/near me, especially when working, and it seems to help. The scale showed a positive movement for my efforts, down over 2 lbs from my high of the month last Monday. My Movement*: Monday: 60 minutes yoga + 41 minutes walking, 12,318 steps/day Tuesday: 32 minutes walking, 12,131 steps/day Wednesday: 48 minutes walking, 11,724 steps/day – 5k finished Thursday: 52 minutes walking, 13,803 steps/day – 5k finished Friday: 60 minutes yoga, 5,411 steps/day Saturday: 68 minutes walking, 14,586 steps/day – 5k finished Sunday: 43 minutes walking, 12,411 steps/day Goals for April: Did I meet my goals last week?

Last Week (March 26 – April 1, 2018): Happy April. This update is for the final week of March and the end of the first quarter. It was an okay month/quarter. I get going on my weight loss, then something “gets in the way” like vacation or Easter Sunday get togethers. I’m not doing so well. Last week, I was at my best weight in over a month midweek, and then I ate way too much food over the Easter weekend, and gained three pounds. *sigh* My Movement*: Monday: 60 minutes yoga + 48 minutes walking, 13,934 steps/day – 5k finished Tuesday: 50 minutes walking, 11,506 steps/day – 5k finished Wednesday: 49 minutes walking, 12,445 steps/day – 5k finished Thursday: 58 minutes yoga + 49 minutes walking, 11,127 steps/day – 5k finished Friday: 51 minutes walking, 10,983 steps/day – 5k finished Saturday: 38 minutes walking, 12,492 steps/day Sunday: 39 minutes walking, 13,082 steps/day Goals for March: Did I meet my goals last week?

My Goals for April: I feel like I’m in a bit of a rut, but I’m also not sticking with my nutrition goals very well. So I’m keeping the nutrition goals the same*, and I’ve increased my fitness goals for April, to include exercising everyday for 30 minutes. *I did edit my water goal slightly from 50 oz to 48 oz because it’s easier to keep track on my LoseIt app (it does it in 8 oz increments.) Plus, I don’t count my daily 8 oz of milk so, I know if I get 48 oz, I am actually getting 8-16 oz more per day. My Goals for the month: Close all three “rings” in Apple Watch, 7 days per week Move with purpose (exercise) at least 30 minutes, 7 days per week Track my caloric intake using the LoseIt! app Stick within my allotted calorie consumption each week Get in 6 5ks and 6 yoga classes for month – at least one per week No more than 2 alcoholic beverages per week-and only on one day...

Last Week (March 19 – March 25, 2018): While I met my exercise goals, I didn’t take care of my nutrition goals. It’s too easy to slide back into bad habits and convincing myself that a couple extra <insert food/drink> won’t make a difference. Still struggling with water – but also just keeping track of it. I can’t go back over the day and think “Did I drink 2 cups or 4? Did I finish that bottle?” Bad me!
