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 (January 1 – January 7, 2018):

First week of the year and I’m trying to be more balanced than I was during December. Even with the kids home for two snow days last week, I was able to get in more exercise than the previous week. However, it did mess up my going to yoga class. I did better with my eating – still not where I should be, but much better than the previous two weeks.

My Movement*:
Monday: no exercise, 4,913 steps/day
Tuesday: 52 minutes walking, 12,314 steps/day – 5k finished
Wednesday: 50 minutes walking, 12,223 steps/day – 5k finished
Thursday: 57 minutes walking, 12,915 steps/day – 5k finished
Friday: no exercise, 4,606 steps/day
Saturday: 40 minutes elliptical + 31 minutes walking, 14,699 steps/day
Sunday: 47 minutes walking, 14,933 steps/day

Goals for January:

Did I meet my goals last week?

  • Close all three “rings” in Apple Watch, 5 days per week – 5/5
  • Move with purpose (exercise) at least 30 minutes, 6 days per week – 5/6
  • Track my caloric intake using the LoseIt! app – 7/7
  • Consume no more than 700 extra calories per week – fail! 2,700 calories over
  • Get in 6 5ks and 6 yoga classes for month; at least one per week – 3 5ks and 0 yoga
  • Walk 10,000 steps per day – 5/7
