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 (April 1 – April 7, 2019):

New month, same goals. I ate horribly all week, except Sunday. I cannot seem to get snacking and overeating under control. I gained almost 3 pounds this week. But I am exercising.

My Movement:
Monday: 73 minutes yoga, 5,215 steps/day; calories over
Tuesday: 46 minutes walking, 10,602 steps/day; calories over
Wednesday: 45 minutes walking, 10,471 steps/day; calories over
Thursday: 42 minutes walking, 10,869 steps/day; calories over
Friday: no exercise, 6,458/day; calories over
Saturday: 59 minutes walking, 14,961 steps/day; calories over
Sunday: 36 minutes walking, 10,276 steps/day; calories under

Goals for April:

I plan to continue to maintain weight and keep moving during April. I plan to continue to keep my alcohol intake to one serving per week. I want to continue to try and cut back on sweets to 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 – 5/5
  • Alcohol – good; Sweets – bad
So are you ready to lace up your sneakers? Are you ready to up your commit to fit?
