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 12 – February 18, 2018):

On my fourth week of new goals and plan, I did okay, but made a couple bad choices (like eating the WHOLE Panera cookie which was 500 calories!), and I missed my caloric intake goal. It’s not “so bad” but with my going on vacation this coming week, it’s more like a slide down a slippery slope. I will just need to take each day as it comes and rededicate myself to my goals every day.

My Movement*:
Monday: 60 minutes yoga + 25 minutes elliptical, 10,209 steps/day
Tuesday: 52 minutes walking, 12,566 steps/day – 5k finished
Wednesday: 48 minutes walking, 12,094 steps/day – 5k finished
Thursday: 60 minutes yoga + 53 minutes walking, 11,440 steps/day – 5k finished
Friday: 50 minutes walking, 12,118 steps/day – 5k finished
Saturday: 47 minutes walking, 11,134 steps/day – 5k finished
Sunday: 61 minutes walking, 15,504 steps/day – 5k finished

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 – fail! 
  • Get in 6 5ks and 6 yoga classes for month – at least one per week – 16 5ks and 6 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 – 5 or 6/7 (I forgot to track Sunday)
  • Walk 10,000 steps per day – 7/7
