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 26 – April 1, 2018):

Happy April. This update is for the final week of March and the end of the first quarter. It was an okay month/quarter. I get going on my weight loss, then something “gets in the way” like vacation or Easter Sunday get togethers. I’m not doing so well. Last week, I was at my best weight in over a month midweek, and then I ate way too much food over the Easter weekend, and gained three pounds. *sigh*

My Movement*:
Monday: 60 minutes yoga + 48 minutes walking, 13,934 steps/day – 5k finished
Tuesday: 50 minutes walking, 11,506 steps/day – 5k finished
Wednesday: 49 minutes walking, 12,445 steps/day – 5k finished
Thursday: 58 minutes yoga + 49 minutes walking, 11,127 steps/day – 5k finished
Friday: 51 minutes walking, 10,983 steps/day – 5k finished
Saturday: 38 minutes walking, 12,492 steps/day
Sunday: 39 minutes walking, 13,082 steps/day

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! (2,600 cals over)
  • Get in 6 5ks and 6 yoga classes for month – at least one per week – 15 5ks and 8 yoga
  • No more than 2 alcoholic beverages per week-and only on one day – fail (4 drinks/2 days)
  • Drink 50 oz of non-caffeinated water/beverages, 7 days per week – 5/7 (better!)
  • Walk 10,000 steps per day – 7/7
