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 (February 5 – February 11, 2018):

Well, this is the third week in a row that I’ve met (most of) my goals, and other than a cold I can’t shake, I’m feeling good. I was a bit frustrated with my weigh-in last Monday because I was up 0.6 lbs, even after having a very good week both food and exercise-wise. But I’ll keep up my hard work in hopes I go down a bit more before I head for vacation on February 21st.

I am struggling with the water intake goal. I will continue to work on that – but I feel so bloated when I try to drink more water than I already do.

My Movement*:
Monday: 60 minutes yoga + 57 minutes walking, 11,801 steps/day – 5k finished
Tuesday: 53 minutes walking, 11,215 steps/day – 5k finished
Wednesday: 53 minutes walking, 11,843 steps/day – 5k finished
Thursday: 60 minutes yoga + 32 minutes walking, 10,105 steps/day
Friday: 50 minutes walking, 11,163 steps/day – 5k finished
Saturday: 51 minutes walking, 12,330 steps/day – 5k finished
Sunday: 28 minutes yoga + 34 minutes walking, 10,429 steps/day

Goals for February:

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
  • Stick within my allotted calorie consumption each week – success! 
  • Get in 6 5ks and 6 yoga classes for month – at least one per week – 10 5ks and 4 yoga
  • No more than 2 alcoholic beverages per week-and only on one day – success!
  • Drink 50 oz of non-caffeinated water/beverages, 7 days per week – 4/7
  • Walk 10,000 steps per day – 7/7
