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 9 – April 15, 2018):

This past week was a pretty average week for me. I ate over my allotted calories… but not in one big meal out, it was more like a couple hundred each day. That’s not good because that leads to a constant need for more calories. My weight was up a little bit, but that’s to be expected with the extra calories. I did do really well on my exercise and water goals!

My Movement*:
Monday: 60 minutes yoga + 32 minutes walking, 11,494 steps/day
Tuesday: 58 minutes walking, 11,370 steps/day – 5k finished
Wednesday: 52 minutes walking, 12,904 steps/day – 5k finished
Thursday: 60 minutes yoga + 37 minutes walking, 11,396 steps/day
Friday: 50 minutes walking, 11,524 steps/day – 5k finished
Saturday: 48 minutes walking, 11,253 steps/day – 5k finished
Sunday: 47 minutes walking, 12,511 steps/day – 5k finished

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 – FAIL (1,800 cal over)!
  • Get in 6 5ks and 6 yoga classes for month – at least one per week – 8 5ks + 4 yoga
  • No more than 2 alcoholic beverages per week-and only on one day – success-ish
  • Drink 48 oz of non-caffeinated water/beverages, 7 days per week – 7/7
  • Walk 10,000 steps per day – 7/7
