Last Week (January 22 – January 28, 2018): YES!!

Overall a decent January. I mostly made my exercise goals – missing one week of yoga, and a couple 10,000 step days. Food was an issue most of the month, but finished strong.

Last Week (January 8 – January 14, 2018): UGH. That’s how I’m feeling. While I didn’t meet my caloric intake goal – I did MUCH better than the past several weeks. Better by a lot! So color me extremely disappointed when the scale read 0.2 lbs MORE than last week’s weigh-in. And up 3 lbs from a month ago. I don’t want to have to take DRAMATIC MEASURES to lose weight because I won’t be able to keep up said dramatic measures and then all the weight will come back. *sigh* I did pretty good with my exercising – closing the rings everyday and getting in movement. Only one yoga class, but my neighbor went with me and she wants to go more often! My Movement*: Monday: two walks for 65 minutes total, 12,522 steps/day Tuesday: 42 minutes walking, 10,846 steps/day Wednesday: 60 minutes yoga + 16 minutes walking, 10,038 steps/day Thursday: 48 minutes walking + 10 minutes elliptical, 12,442 steps/day – 5k finished Friday: 58 minutes walking, 11,403 steps/day – 5k finished Saturday: 54 minutes walking, 12,859 steps/day – 5k finished Sunday: 54 minutes walking, 11,978 steps/day – 5k finished Goals for January: Did I meet my goals last week?
