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 (March 4 – March 10, 2019):

First four days of last week went well, and I took a planned down day on Friday. But then between my busy schedule and the weather, I didn’t get in much movement over the weekend. Overall, a better week, and I’m moving in the right direction. I’m cut down on sweets and didn’t have any alcohol last week. I lost the weight I’d put on during the vacation an am back under my goal weight.

My Movement:
Monday: 45 minutes walking, 10,820 steps/day; calories under
Tuesday: 48 minutes walking, 10,129 steps/day; calories under
Wednesday: 33 minutes walking, 10,042 steps/day; calories under
Thursday: 60 minutes yoga, 6,115 steps/day; calories under
Friday: no exercise, 5,257/day; calories over
Saturday: no exercise, 5,378 steps/day; calories over
Sunday: no exercise, 5,008 steps/day; calories over

Goals for March:

I plan to continue to maintain weight and keep moving during March. However, I feel that I need to learn more about cutting out some of my carb intake. I will start by cutting back on alcohol; one serving per week. I also need to cut back on sweets; one serving per day.

Did I meet my goals last week?

  • Close all three “rings” in Apple Watch, 5 days per week – 4/5
  • Move with purpose (exercise) at least 30 minutes, 5 days per week – 4/5
  • Track my caloric intake using the LoseIt! app – 7/7
  • Stick within my allotted calorie consumption each week – over, but only by 430 cals!
  • Get in yoga at least once per week – 1/1
  • Drink 48 oz of non-caffeinated water/beverages, 7 days per week – 7/7
  • Walk 10,000 steps per day, 5 days per week – 4/5
So are you ready to lace up your sneakers? Are you ready to up your commit to fit?
