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 (March 12 – March 18, 2018):

Hmmm… I’m feeling okay about my fitness progress. Lots of snow meant less steps (but still lots of exercise); I even got my Apple Fitness 200% Movement Award for the first time (I doubled my goal for active calories burned) when I went downhill skiing all day with my daughter. But my eating isn’t great – between the Girl Scout cookies and a run-in with my kryptonite: Buffalo Chicken Dip. I was 1,000 calories over my weekly goal, leaving me at no weight loss for the week. Still struggling with water.

My Movement*:
Monday: 64 minutes yoga + 28 minutes walking, 10,611 steps/day
Tuesday: 50 minutes shoveling, 8,558 steps/day
Wednesday: 42 minutes shoveling + 30 minutes walking, 10,720 steps/day
Thursday: 56 minutes yoga + 32 minutes walking, 12,502 steps/day
Friday: 38 minutes walking, 11,110 steps/day
Saturday: 4 hours downhill skiing, 9,028 steps/day
Sunday: 52 minutes walking, 13,747 steps/day – 5k finished

Goals for March:

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! (1,000 cals over)
  • Get in 6 5ks and 6 yoga classes for month – at least one per week – 6 5ks and 4 yoga
  • No more than 2 alcoholic beverages per week-and only on one day – good
  • Drink 50 oz of non-caffeinated water/beverages, 7 days per week – 1/7 ?
  • Walk 10,000 steps per day – 5/7
