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 (September 10 – September 16):

A better week. From a fitness standpoint, I did really well, meeting my exercise goals. I didn’t have a “perfect” week, but at 9:30 on Sunday night when I finally had time for a walk, I listened to my body and rested, rather than push myself for a “number” or to “check a box.” I feel this was good. From a dietary standpoint, I was still over my calories by a lot, but better than the last two weeks. My weight stayed the same this week.

My Movement:
Monday: 64 minutes yoga + 31 minutes walking, 10,129 steps/day; calories under
Tuesday: 51 minutes walking, 11,659 steps/day; calories over
Wednesday: 56 minutes walking, 11,883 steps/day; calories over
Thursday: 53 minutes walking, 12,645 steps/day; calories under
Friday: 51 minutes walking, 12,178 steps/day; calories over
Saturday: 51 minutes walking, 13,390 steps/day; calories over
Sunday: no exercise, 6,549 steps/day; calories over

Goals for September:

Did I meet my goals last week?

  • Close all three “rings” in Apple Watch, 4 days per week – 6/4
