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 (May 7 – May 13, 2018):

Even though I had a couple of big eating days (Celebrating my girl’s dance recital on Friday; Mother’s Day with steak and lobster on Sunday!), and I had a beer or glass of wine on 3 evenings, I still managed to do well on the other days and kept the weight stable (even down a little). I worked hard on my exercise and I’m just trying to get through these crazy, busy days with a good attitude.

My Movement*:
Monday: 60 minutes yoga + 34 minutes walking, 11,834 steps/day
Tuesday: 51 minutes walking, 10,514 steps/day – 5k finished
Wednesday: 47 minutes walking, 11,494 steps/day – 5k finished
Thursday: 49 minutes walking, 12,176 steps/day – 5k finished
Friday: 31 minutes walking, 11,817 steps/day
Saturday: 48 minutes walking, 12,703 steps/day – 5k finished
Sunday: 36 minutes walking, 11,160 steps/day

Goals for May:

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 (2,000 cal over)
