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 (February 24 – March 1, 2020):

Feet and sand at beach
Getting my toes wet in the Gulf of Mexico.

After my wonderful time in Daytona at Coastal Magic, I headed over to the west side of Florida for a family vacation. Both my folks and my in-laws winter in Southwest Florida, and we are lucky to have a week off in February to spend with them each year. And even though I did eat a few more calories than allowed on plan, and drank a few more drinks than normal, my overall caloric intake was much better than when I was in Daytona. Additionally, I was able to exercise everyday, although no yoga – it was all walking. I ended up being down 0.4 lbs for the week, bringing my vacation weight gain to 1.4 lbs. That’s really not bad and I hopefully can take that off in the next week or two. I’m down a total of 3.8 lbs for the year.

Felicia is back hosting the Facebook Group this month, so pop on over and check in with us there!

My Goals for 2020:

My overall goals for 2020 remain much the same as the past few months:

  • To lose 10 pounds and get back to my goal weight through healthy eating and exercise.
  • To remain an active member of FitReaders and support my fellow members.

Goals for February:

How did I do this past 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 – 7/5
  • Move at least 10 minutes non-exercise days – 0/0
  • Get in yoga 2 times per week 0/2
  • Track my caloric intake using the LoseIt! app – 7/7
  • Stick within my allotted calorie consumption each week no, over by 3,100 cals
  • Drink 48 oz of non-caffeinated water/beverages, 7 days per week – 7/7
  • Limit alcohol intake to 2 servings per week 5.5/2

I’ll be posting my goals for March next week.

So are you ready to lace up your sneakers? Are you ready to up your commit to fit?
