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 (January 28 – February 3, 2019):

The first week of February was a much better week for me overall. I made an effort to get in my 30 minutes of exercise and walked around the house at night, most nights, when I needed a few more steps to hit 10,000 steps. I have noticed that I really have to make an effort to hit 10k steps – even the days I exercise, so I’m still not always hitting that goal. I ate much better, and was only over my weekly calorie limit by 678 calories (and that includes Super Bowl Sunday where I went to a party with lots and lots of great food!).

My Movement:
Monday: 70 minutes yoga, 5,474 steps/day; calories under
Tuesday: 41 minutes walking, 10,523 steps/day; calories over
Wednesday: 33 minutes walking, 10,108 steps/day; calories under
Thursday: 30 minutes walking, 10,205 steps/day; calories under
Friday: 40 minutes walking, 9,148/day; calories over
Saturday: no exercise, 4,981 steps/day; calories over
Sunday: 54 minutes walking, 11,234 steps/day; calories over

Goals for February:
