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 (August 20 – August 26):

Well… It wasn’t that great of a week. I just seem to have no energy to stick with my goals or fitness plan. I was stuck in the hospital Friday and Saturday with my daughter (BG) who had surgery. But I didn’t make any effort on the other days. I’m just not feeling it… ya know?!

My Movement:
Monday: 60 minutes yoga, 36 minutes walking, 10,599 steps/day; calories under
Tuesday: 51 minutes walking, 11,382 steps/day; calories over
Wednesday: 59 minutes walking, 10,910 steps/day*; calories over
Thursday: no exercise, 6,478 steps/day*; calories over
Friday: no exercise, 7,644 steps/day; calories over
Saturday: no exercise, 7,343 steps/day; calories over
Sunday: no exercise, 7,460 steps/day; calories over

*My Apple Watcher charger died, so my watch died near the end of the day Wednesday. I got one mid-day on Thursday. So steps are a bit off.

Goals for August:

Did I meet my goals last week?

  • Close all three “rings” in Apple Watch, 3 days per week – 2/3
  • Move with purpose (exercise) at least 30 minutes, 4 days per week – 3/4
  • Track my caloric intake using the LoseIt! app – 7/7
  • Stick within my allotted calorie consumption each week – 1 day
  • Get in yoga at least once per week – 1/1
  • Drink 48 oz of non-caffeinated water/beverages, 7 days per week – 3/7
  • Walk 10,000 steps per day, 5 days per week – 3/5
