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 19 – March 25, 2018):

While I met my exercise goals, I didn’t take care of my nutrition goals. It’s too easy to slide back into bad habits and convincing myself that a couple extra <insert food/drink> won’t make a difference.

Still struggling with water – but also just keeping track of it. I can’t go back over the day and think “Did I drink 2 cups or 4? Did I finish that bottle?” Bad me!

My Movement*:
Monday: 62 minutes yoga + 38 minutes walking, 10,618 steps/day
Tuesday: 40 minutes walking, 11,483 steps/day
Wednesday: 47 minutes walking, 11,981 steps/day – 5k finished
Thursday: 59 minutes yoga + 42 minutes walking, 11,923 steps/day
Friday: 50 minutes walking, 11,807 steps/day – 5k finished
Saturday: 50 minutes walking, 12,235 steps/day – 5k finished
Sunday: 50 minutes walking, 13,250 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! (2,200 cals over)
  • Get in 6 5ks and 6 yoga classes for month – at least one per week – 10 5ks and 6 yoga
  • No more than 2 alcoholic beverages per week-and only on one day – fail (3 drinks/2 days)
  • Drink 50 oz of non-caffeinated water/beverages, 7 days per week – 0/7 ?
  • Walk 10,000 steps per day – 7/7
