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 28 – October 4, 2020):

Last week was the third week that I really focused on my goals. I mostly did well, but my folks were visiting and we had a couple bigger meals that included wine. Overall, I felt pretty good, but noticed the days I ate/drank more, I felt kind of icky. So I need to remember this when “tempted” again.

Weight: I was up 0.6 pounds last week, staying just below my starting weight from January. I need to remember that I won’t make progress if I ignore my goals.

Goals: Overall, I did pretty well with my goals. I found focusing on being below my caloric intake each day really helped. I think the reason I was up the little bit of weight this week is because of too much wine and I had a big eating day on Sunday (the day before I weigh in).

Don’t forget to join the Facebook Group and check in with us there!

My Goals for 2020:

My overall goals for 2020 are:

  • 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 October (same as September):

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 4 days – 5/4
  • Stick within my allotted calorie consumption each week – over (300 cals)
  • Drink 48 oz of non-caffeinated water/beverages, 7 days per week – 7/7
  • Limit alcohol intake to 2 servings per week – 6/2
So are you ready to lace up your sneakers? Are you ready to up your commit to fit?
