Welcome to #FitReaders!! Felicia the Geeky Blogger and I are super excited to be co-hosting this fitness-oriented group for another year! If you have any questions about #FitReaders, you can leave them in the comment section or email me at twimom227(at)gmail(dot)com.
Most of our support is done via our Facebook Group. I will post my weekly check-in posts on Fridays, as it helps me be accountable. You are welcome to do your own check-in posts, check in below, in the comments, or check in with the Facebook group – whatever works for you!
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 (July 8 – July 14, 2019):
Last week was filled with frantic times finishing up work for the summer and travel for a family wedding. I ate A LOT of good food and was “active” less than 50% of the days. In fact, I only exercised one day last week – that is the lowest amount of exercise for me in years. It was a fun week, but I ended up gaining five pounds. We’ll see how quickly that goes away!
Monday: 63 minutes walking, 12,550 steps/day; calories over
Tuesday: 36 minutes walking, 11,143 steps/day; calories under
Wednesday: 46 minutes walking, 10,034 steps/day; calories over
Thursday: no exercise, 6,052 steps/day; calories under
Friday: no exercise, 8,511 steps/day; calories over
Saturday: 33 minutes walking, 15,382 steps/day; calories over
Sunday: 40 minutes walking, 13,212 steps/day; calories over
Goals for July:
Last week was much better for me. While I still ate and drank more than my share of calories, I was able to get in some good walks. I still skipped out on yoga (boo), but I did walk both weekend days when I was on mini-vacation for my son’s lacrosse tournament. So overall, a good week!
Did I meet my goals last week?
- Close all three “rings” in Apple Watch, 5 days per week – 5/5
- Move with purpose (exercise) at least 30 minutes, 5 days per week – 5/5
- 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 – 0/1
- 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
- Alcohol (2 servings per week) – over
