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 11 – March 17, 2019):

Last week as a pretty good week. I did eat over my calories, but I exercised almost every day. I had two alcoholic drinks-girls night out celebrating birthdays, and I mostly stuck to one “dessert” per day. I feel good about where I was at last week.

My Movement:
Monday: 72 minutes yoga + 24 minutes walking, 8,900 steps/day; calories under
Tuesday: 44 minutes walking, 10,691 steps/day; calories over
Wednesday: 41 minutes walking, 10,203 steps/day; calories over
Thursday: 43 minutes walking, 11,233 steps/day; calories over
Friday: 49 minutes walking, 10,742/day; calories over
Saturday: no exercise, 4,196 steps/day; calories over
Sunday: 40 minutes walking, 10,551 steps/day; calories under

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 – 6/5
  • Move with purpose (exercise) at least 30 minutes, 5 days per week – 6/5
  • Track my caloric intake using the LoseIt! app – 7/7
  • Stick within my allotted calorie consumption each week – over
  • 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 – 5/5
So are you ready to lace up your sneakers? Are you ready to up your commit to fit?
