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 (October 26 – November 1, 2020):

Between Halloween, my BIL’s birthday, and a Mandalorian watch party, I ate a LOT this week. This was the worst week since the beginning of August when I was on vacation. Two times this week, I overate until I physically hurt. That is not good. I don’t like it, but I still do it.

Weight: Up 2.6 pounds.

Goals: I did well on my exercise goals, but not the calorie/food goals. I’m going to make a few changes for the rest of the year (see below).

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:

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 – 6/5
  • Be under my DAILY caloric intake maximum on at least 4 days – 0/4
  • Stick within my allotted calorie consumption each week – over (4,145 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

Next month… November Goals:

So I’ve realized that I am beating myself up trying to lose 10 pounds. I know I need to, but I am struggling with the effort it takes to completely curb my eating/drinking/calorie consumption. I’ve decided while I want to continue to work on eating better, I am not going to focus on losing those 10 pounds until after the holidays. It’s not a “free pass” to eat more, but mentally, I need to give myself a break. As for alcohol, I have a goal, but I disregard it all the time. I’m trying to think, would it be better to limit alcohol to the weekends only or something like that? – a time limit verse an amount limit. Maybe I’ll try Friday and Saturdays ONLY (plus Thanksgiving).

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