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 (August 3 – August 9, 2020):

The first full week of August with some slightly adjusted goals… I was successful at eating better (calories, nutrition) for three days!! But the other days, my eating (and drinking) habits were much like the week I was on vacation. Still, it’s a start. I kicked butt with my exercise – getting out every day, even when it was really hot. Although I didn’t really lose weight, I know I’m going in the right direction.

Weight: I was down 0.2 pounds from the previous week, still above my January 1 starting weight.

Goals: I did pretty well, except with drinking alcohol. It’s too easy to have a summer drink (wine spritzer, fruity shandy, frozen pina coladas) when chilling with friends in the summer heat. I need to limit the drinks to the weekend – maybe then I’ll do better!

Don’t forget to join the Facebook Group 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 (from my Jan 1 start weight) 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 August:

How did I do this past week?

  • Close all three “rings” in Apple Watch, 5 days per week – 7/5
  • Move with purpose (exercise) at least 30 minutes, 5 days per week – 7/5
  • Be under my DAILY caloric intake maximum on at least 2 days – 3/2
  • Stick within my allotted calorie consumption each week – over (2,006 cals)
  • Drink 48 oz of non-caffeinated water/beverages, 7 days per week – 7/7
  • Limit alcohol intake to 2 servings per week – 10/2
So are you ready to lace up your sneakers? Are you ready to up your commit to fit?
