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 16 – April 22, 2018):

Another decent week. I did really well five days, not as good two days. This lead to overeating on those two days, and no weight loss. I did hurt myself doing yoga (I think) and Saturday was in a lot of pain. But then it seemed to settle down, so I’ve been walking slower and watching to make sure I don’t get a serious injury.

I’ve started using a new app… HabitMinder, and I really like it. You can monitor up to three habits for free, and it’s $4 for unlimited habits. It’s Apple Watch compatible, which I like. Right now I’m using it to track my water intake. You can set reminders throughout the day to help and can easy add amounts to help track. I like that you can create and track almost any habit – like reading, being kind, squats, etc. It’s a cool app and I look to try out more things soon.

My Movement*:
Monday: 60 minutes yoga + 30 elliptical walking, 8,541 steps/day
Tuesday: 52 minutes walking, 12,053 steps/day – 5k finished
Wednesday: 36 minutes walking, 11,724 steps/day
Thursday: 60 minutes yoga + 32 minutes walking, 11,754 steps/day
Friday: 56 minutes walking, 12,451 steps/day – 5k finished
Saturday: 62 minutes walking, 13,586 steps/day – 5k finished
Sunday: 45 minutes walking, 12,895 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 – FAIL (1,900 cal over)!
  • Get in 6 5ks and 6 yoga classes for month – at least one per week – 11 5ks + 6 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 – 7/7
  • Walk 10,000 steps per day – 6/7
