My Week:

I am happy to report that our annual neighborhood lobster bake was a huge success! The weather was ideal and everyone had a great time. I ate WAY TOO MUCH FOOD all weekend, so it was no surprise that I gained almost three pounds when I weighed in on Monday. However, I’ve been kicking my own butt all week long, even starting a Workweek Hustle Fitbit Challenge with some of you all to motivate me to move more. And it seems to be working. Thank you!

My Movement:
Friday: 36 minutes walking, 10,832 steps
Saturday: 60 minutes walking, 12,507 steps
Sunday: none, 12,482 steps (Lobster Bake hostess)
Monday: 77 minutes walking, 18,086 steps
Tuesday: 75 minutes walking, 13,942 steps
Wednesday: 43 minutes walking, 10,780 steps
Thursday:  50 minutes BodyFlow, 62 minutes walking, 11,350 steps

Questions for YOU!

How was your week? Did you hit any milestones? Try a new food or workout? Celebrate your week with us!

Don’t forget to stop back on Monday June 1 to commit to #FitReaders for the month of June. I’ll be talking prizes!

  1. My week starts on Monday so it doesn’t really jive with your schedule but I counted in my last 7 days for my figures. Here’s my link on my personal blog:


    I didn’t keep up the pace I did the first week, though ironically I am taking the dog for a walk after dinner instead of letting her out in the yard. She is old and has arthritis like me 🙂 but we do okay. The change is due to having to get up 3 hours earlier several days a week, and having to adjust. Hope everyone had a great week! At least I am curbing my snacking, if that counts 🙂

    • I hear you – my “fitness week” also starts on a Monday, but since the “check-ins” have always been on Fridays, I do the same – just go with the numbers for the previous 7 days.

      Sounds like you are adjusting, which is part of the process! Great job on the snacking. Can you get in a few steps early in the morning since you are getting up earlier? Just keep up with tracking and trying! We’re here to support you!!

      PS. I can’t access your blog b/c it’s invite only. If you want to add me, I’ll swing by and check it out. 🙂

    I start my weeks on Sunday…

    May 24 – 30

    Sunday: Off Day
    Monday: Off Day
    Tuesday: —
    Wednesday: burned 331 calories doing 35 minutes of Elliptical Trainer
    Thursday: burned 530 calories doing 60 minutes of Elliptical Trainer
    Friday: burned 530 calories doing 60 minutes of Elliptical Trainer
    Saturday: **PLAN Elliptical and/or pilates**

    • Sounds good Mary… as long as you are getting in some steps and on those lower days, maybe add a couple trips up and down the stairs.

    • It’s an annual event, and lots of fun. Of course, I live right on the coast where the lobster is plentiful, so I can get it anytime!

      Great job on your goals!!

    you really killed it with the steps … great job! I did not do a great job last week but I’m kicking myself to do better this week. I think I need to join a workweek hustle for some motivation, although I have a feeling a big stick might be needed lol

    My fitbit quit syncing for a few days and my steps have been off due to the stinking rain/flooding. Friday and Saturday night I was very bad on drinking and I have committed myself to doing Whole30 again for this month. I did some serious gym work and can see the changes and have received compliments on my arms especially.

        don’t think I wasn’t. I tried to sync it with a few devices and no luck. finally it decided it liked me this morning. I need to get “stepping” 😀

  5. The lobster bake sounds fun and yummy! I would have eaten a lot too! You had a great week! I’ve had a good week. I still go to the gym with my coworkers and if I can’t join them because of a meeting I will exercise at home.
