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 29 – August 4, 2019):

I was on family vacation last week (after coming off of RWA in New York), so my week was lots of fun, but not productive. I gained another pound last week, bringing my total weight gain to roughly 8-10 pounds. Now that I’m back home, I’ll be working on losing that extra weight. I can feel the difference in my knees and back when I walk – the added weight puts extra pressure.

Goals for August:

My overall goals for July are TO LOSE the 8+ pounds I gained in June-July and to keep moving. I also want to get back to yoga – during August, my goal will be to do at least 15 minutes once per week from home (or go to a class). I’ve also been slacking with water intake lately, so I need to reinforce that! 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 – 1/5
  • Move with purpose (exercise) at least 30 minutes, 5 days per week – 1/5
  • Track my caloric intake using the LoseIt! app – 7/7
  • Stick within my allotted calorie consumption each week – WAY over (more than ever)
  • 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 – 2/5
  • Alcohol (3 servings per week)  many, many servings
So are you ready to lace up your sneakers? Are you ready to up your commit to fit?
