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 26 – March 4, 2018):

I’m writing this on Monday (3/5) and I’m feeling pretty positive today. I was away from home and vacationing from Feb. 21 – March 3, and I only gained one pound! That’s not bad considering all of the extra calories and beverages I consumed. I hope now that I’m back home, I’ll shed that pound in a week, and continue to shed a few more, like I was doing before I left.

Even though I ate a lot over my time away, I was moving a lot – I have a new all time step high for one day! We spent 4 days at Universal Orlando, and when we weren’t walking, I was standing and moving. This helped a lot. Also, even though my calories were up, I didn’t snack a lot. It was up because I ate bigger meals that had higher calorie counts. I also drank sugary beverages – especially when I was in Daytona at Coastal Magic (those beachside cocktails were delightful!).

Looking at my movement, most days I didn’t have dedicated exercise time like I do at home, but I did make sure I closed my Fitness Rings each day while I was away, and finally breaking my 41-day streak on Friday (I was tired by the time we got home in the storm!)

Lastly, I’m not doing so great on my water goal. But I keep forgetting to track it. So my goal this week is to keep track better!

My Movement*:
Monday: Universal Orlando, 22,902 steps/day
Tuesday: Universal Orlando, 25,131 steps/day
Wednesday: Universal Orlando, 17,651 steps/day
Thursday: Universal Orlando, 23,462 steps/day
Friday: no exercise, 7,593 steps/day
Saturday: 33 minutes walking, 14,158 steps/day
Sunday: 60 minutes walking, 13,668 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! 
  • Get in 6 5ks and 6 yoga classes for month – at least one per week – 1 5ks and 0 yoga
  • No more than 2 alcoholic beverages per week-and only on one day – fail!
  • Drink 50 oz of non-caffeinated water/beverages, 7 days per week -3/7 ?
  • Walk 10,000 steps per day – 6/7
