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 (December 31, 2018 – January 6, 2019):

Welcome 2019! Here we are… the start of a new year. I had a pretty good week last week. Although I was over my calorie allotment for the week, it only about 250 calories over for the week – the best it’s been since the beginning of December. And all of those extra calories came on Monday Dec. 31st – New Year Eve, when I attended a neighborhood party. My exercise it a bit more consistent now that the holidays are over, but I’m still not pushing myself to get in that one “extra day.”

My Movement:
Monday: no exercise, 7,009 steps/day; calories over
Tuesday: 50 minutes walking, 10,352 steps/day; calories over
Wednesday: 43 minutes walking, 10,320 steps/day; calories over
Thursday: 57 minutes yoga + 32 minutes walking, 9,520 steps/day; calories under
Friday: 43 minutes walking, 10,355/day; calories under
Saturday: no exercise, 5,803 steps/day; calories under
Sunday: 47 minutes walking, 11,097 steps/day; calories under
