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 (November 9 – November 15, 2020):

Well, I had my second whole week with the newish goals and even though I “did better” this week, I gained weight. Less than a pound – so I’m “maintaining” my current weight, but I’m still frustrated. I was over calories for the week, but those limits are still set to lose weight, so I’d hope that I wouldn’t have gained. Apparently I can’t let it go of the weight loss mentality…

Weight: Up 0.8 pounds (maintaining weight).

Goals: I did a good job, but I did splurge and overeat on the days I didn’t keep under my goal calories.

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 MAINTAIN my current weight through healthy eating and exercise.
  • To remain an active member of FitReaders and support my fellow members.

Goals for November:

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 (1,320 cals)
  • Drink 48 oz of non-caffeinated water/beverages, 7 days per week – 7/7
  • Limit alcohol intake to 2 days per week – 2/2
So are you ready to lace up your sneakers? Are you ready to up your commit to fit?
