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 (September 7 – September 13, 2020):

Great job exercising…. too much overeating/drinking. There was the holiday last Monday – we had a huge cookout and hung out all day. Then Sunday we had a football watching party.

Weight: I gained 1.4 pounds last week, and I’m at the highest weight I’ve been at in six years. I’m feeling very down, wanting to give up, which leads to more eating and spiraling.

Goals: I’m changing my DAILY caloric intake from “at least 2 days” to “at least 4 days.” I’m meeting my exercise and water goals without problem; it’s all overeating at this point.

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 September:

How did I do this past 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
  • Be under my DAILY caloric intake maximum on at least 2 4 days – 3/2* changed to 4 days starting next week.
  • Stick within my allotted calorie consumption each week – over (2,550 cals)
  • Drink 48 oz of non-caffeinated water/beverages, 7 days per week – 7/7
  • Limit alcohol intake to 2 servings per week – 8/2
So are you ready to lace up your sneakers? Are you ready to up your commit to fit?
