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 29 – February 4, 2018):

Another very good week for me – even with some challenges tossed in. I was worried about snacking during the Super Bowl, but I made dinner beforehand and wasn’t hungry at all during the game. I also stayed away from the beers, which made it easier to avoid snacking. I also had a last minute dinner out with friends. I had a veggie burger with roasted broccolini instead of fries! I met almost all my goals; only missing the water goal on a couple days. The scale was down 1.8 lbs on Monday’s weigh-in. This keeps me motivated to keep it up.

My Movement*:
Monday: 60 minutes yoga + 42 minutes walking, 10,820 steps/day
Tuesday: 53 minutes walking, 11,624 steps/day – 5k finished
Wednesday: 42 minutes walking, 11,364 steps/day
Thursday: 62 minutes yoga + 49 minutes walking, 10,726 steps/day – 5k finished
Friday: 47 minutes walking, 11,665 steps/day – 5k finished
Saturday: 51 minutes walking, 13,481 steps/day – 5k finished
Sunday: 52 minutes walking, 12,378 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 – success!

  • 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
