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 5 – March 11, 2018):

I’ve been home for a week and things are going so-so. I’m still having a very tough time remembering to both drink and track my water. It’s not like when you eat a meal and can recall what it was. I didn’t lose weight – didn’t gain it either. I ate pretty well, but was still almost 300 calories over my weekly allotment. But I’ll keep moving along and figuring it out.

My Movement*:
Monday: 64 minutes yoga + 47 minutes walking, 12,871 steps/day – 5k finished
Tuesday: 43 minutes walking, 10,985 steps/day
Wednesday: 39 minutes walking, 10,631 steps/day
Thursday: 60 minutes yoga + 50 minutes walking, 11,118 steps/day – 5k finished
Friday: no exercise, 5,764 steps/day
Saturday: 55 minutes walking, 12,622 steps/day – 5k finished
Sunday: 51 minutes walking, 14,470 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 – 6/5
  • Move with purpose (exercise) at least 30 minutes, 6 days per week – 6/6
  • Track my caloric intake using the LoseIt! app – 7/7
  • Stick within my allotted calorie consumption each week – fail! (300 cals over)
  • Get in 6 5ks and 6 yoga classes for month – at least one per week – 5 5ks and 2 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 – 2/7 ?
  • Walk 10,000 steps per day – 6/7
