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 15 – July 21, 2019):

So, I’m still consuming way too many calories – it’s the cookouts, snacks at the beach, extra alcoholic beverages. What can I say… summer has been one giant party! But I did have another good week for exercise/moving. I’m staying “stable” about five pounds over where I’d like to be, but I’m in NYC at RWA this week (July 22 – 27) and then off to my family vacation next week. So I’m a bit concerned I’ll be even more when I get back home.

I’m still not doing my yoga, and realistically, I feel like I won’t start up again until September. I don’t know why I’ve got the mental block on this one.

My Movement:
Monday: no exercise, 7,119 steps/day; calories over
Tuesday: 73 minutes walking, 13,888 steps/day; calories over
Wednesday: 50 minutes walking, 11,614 steps/day; calories over
Thursday: 37 minutes walking, 10,131 steps/day; calories over
Friday: 48 minutes walking, 12,727 steps/day; calories over
Saturday: no exercise, 7,789 steps/day; calories over
Sunday: 42 minutes walking, 13,971 steps/day; calories over

Goals for July:

My overall goals for July are maintaining my weight and to keep moving. I’m keeping my exercise and food goals the same as the previous months. My goal is to make good choices because summer is the toughest time for me in that regards.

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 – WAY 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)  many more than 2!
So are you ready to lace up your sneakers? Are you ready to up your commit to fit?
