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 25 – March 31, 2019):

The final week in March was another pretty good week. Great job meeting exercise goals. Mediocre job on the food/calorie goals. I was over for the week, but it really was due to two big eating days. I’m not doing well on cutting back the sweets.

My Movement:
Monday: no exercise, 5,281 steps/day; calories over
Tuesday: 46 minutes walking, 11,101 steps/day; calories under
Wednesday: 44 minutes walking, 10,316 steps/day; calories over
Thursday: 59 minutes yoga + 45 minutes walking, 10,117 steps/day; calories over
Friday: 44 minutes walking, 10,113/day; calories under
Saturday: 45 minutes walking, 10,447 steps/day; calories over
Sunday: 45 minutes walking, 12,106 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 – 6/7
  • Walk 10,000 steps per day, 5 days per week – 6/5
So are you ready to lace up your sneakers? Are you ready to up your commit to fit?
