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 23 – April 29, 2018):

May the 4th Be With YOU!

Last week was school vacation week, and I worked part-time from home. There were lazy mornings, lots of snacking, and many rainy days. I did an okay job, and took a day of rest on Wednesday. I was so close to making my exercise goals for the month, missing only one day for closing all three rings, and missing the 10,000 steps two days. I also missed yoga last week after hurting my hip the previous week.

Food-wise I snacked a lot. I also was at the New England RWA conference on Friday, which brought a few extra carbs and glasses of wine. But I did great on water consumption! The HabitMinder app is working great.

My Movement*:
Monday: 73 minutes walking, 13,454 steps/day
Tuesday: 48 minutes walking, 17,424 steps/day – 5k finished
Wednesday: no exercise, 4,790 steps/day
Thursday: 34 minutes walking, 13,347 steps/day
Friday: 54 minutes walking, 13,035 steps/day – 5k finished
Saturday: 48 minutes walking, 11,936 steps/day – 5k finished
Sunday: 53 minutes walking, 11,507 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 – 6/7
  • Move with purpose (exercise) at least 30 minutes, 7 days per week – 6/7
  • Track my caloric intake using the LoseIt! app – 7/7
  • Stick within my allotted calorie consumption each week – FAIL (3,700 cal over)!
  • Get in 6 5ks and 6 yoga classes for month – at least one per week – 15 5ks + 6 yoga
  • No more than 2 alcoholic beverages per week-and only on one day – fail
  • Drink 48 oz of non-caffeinated water/beverages, 7 days per week – 7/7
  • Walk 10,000 steps per day – 6/7
