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 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?

  • 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
  • Consume no more than 700 extra calories per week – fail! 1,200 calories over
  • Get in 6 5ks and 6 yoga classes for month; at least one per week – 7 5ks and 1 yoga
  • Walk 10,000 steps per day – 7/7
