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 (April 2 – April 8, 2018):

Coming into April, I was feeling a bit frustrated, not necessarily because of my progress, but because I wasn’t sticking with my goals and plan. But I did much better this first week of the new quarter. I stuck pretty close to my nutrition goals, only a couple hundred calories over my limit, and I did much better drinking and tracking my water this week. I’m making more of an effort to have the water in my hand/near me, especially when working, and it seems to help. The scale showed a positive movement for my efforts, down over 2 lbs from my high of the month last Monday.

My Movement*:
Monday: 60 minutes yoga + 41 minutes walking, 12,318 steps/day
Tuesday: 32 minutes walking, 12,131 steps/day
Wednesday: 48 minutes walking, 11,724 steps/day – 5k finished
Thursday: 52 minutes walking, 13,803 steps/day – 5k finished
Friday: 60 minutes yoga, 5,411 steps/day
Saturday: 68 minutes walking, 14,586 steps/day – 5k finished
Sunday: 43 minutes walking, 12,411 steps/day

Goals for April:

Did I meet my goals last week?

  • Close all three “rings” in Apple Watch, 7 days per week – 7/7
  • Move with purpose (exercise) at least 30 minutes, 7 days per week – 7/7
  • Track my caloric intake using the LoseIt! app – 7/7
  • Stick within my allotted calorie consumption each week – so close (237 cal over)!
  • Get in 6 5ks and 6 yoga classes for month – at least one per week – 3 5ks + 2 yoga
  • No more than 2 alcoholic beverages per week-and only on one day – success!
  • Drink 48 oz of non-caffeinated water/beverages, 7 days per week – 6/7
  • Walk 10,000 steps per day – 6/7
