#FitReaders information page
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 4 – October 10, 2021):
I started out doing well with eating at the beginning of last week, but the weekend was a challenge. We celebrated my son’s 18th birthday on Sunday 10/10, and had family and friends over for food, drink, and conversation. It was a wonderful time, but I did overeat and drink.
Weight: I was up over another pound last week. That’s three weeks in a row with a pound or more gain. This is very frustrating. I know I had two weeks of overeating by 5,000 calories. However, last week, while still over, it was better, and I still gained another pound.
Goals: Once again I did great with exercise but not great with food and drink. I’m getting frustrated. I know I need to think of ways to shake things up, but I am scared/unsure to try something new. It’s hard work… LOL But I’m also frustrated because when I have one “bad” day, I gain weight. I have two or three “good” days, and I don’t lose any weight.
Don’t forget to join the Facebook Group and check in with us there!
My Goals for 2021:
My overall goals for 2021 are:
- To lose approximately 10 pounds (from my Jan 1 start weight) and get back to my goal weight. I will do with through healthy eating and exercise. I don’t have to be perfect, but I do need to make a true effort.
- To get back into yoga or start some sort of strength training. I miss yoga, but found I wasn’t doing it at home, alone, since COVID shut down the studio I went to. I need to change things up.
- To remain an active member of FitReaders and support my fellow members. I will do this by actively participating in the FitReader Facebook Group and continuing to share my journey with my weekly check-in on the blog.
Goals for October:
- Use my in-home yoga and/or stretching program two days per week. – 2/2
- 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. – 2/2
- Be no more than 1,250 calories over my total calorie consumption goal each week. – no (+2,163)
- Limit alcohol intake to 2 days per week (for a total of 4 servings per week). – 2(5)
- Drink 64 oz of non-caffeinated water/beverages, 7 days per week. – 7/7
