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 (April 11 – April 17, 2022):

The week was okay; busy as this time of year is. My daughter has dance M-Th evenings. My son had two lacrosse games (Tuesday away and Friday home). He did have a career best game last Friday, scoring 6 goals! Friday evening I had a blast going to see Purple Xperience, a Prince tribute band. We sang, danced, and laughed a lot. On Easter Sunday, I got up and went to sunrise service at the beach. Then my daughter and I went to Boston with our friends to see To Kill a Mockingbird, staring Richard Thomas as Atticus Finch. It was AMAZING… brought tears to my eyes.

I didn’t do well with my eating all week. I would be good most of the day, but then have snacks and desserts in the evening. Then I ate out on Friday and Sunday. I just didn’t seem to care.

Weight: I was down 0.4 pounds last week.

Goals: Not that great.

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

My overall goals for 2022 are:

  • To lose (approximately) five (5) pounds (from my Jan 1 start weight) and maintain the weight loss. 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 continue with my yoga and add meditation to my weekly routine. I will do this with the Peloton app, with a goal of yoga and/or meditation at least four times per week – but I’ll adjust month-to-month. Focus on being present in the now.
  • 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 March/April:

  • Use my in-home yoga two days per week. – 0/2
  • Add in-home meditation two days per week. – 0/2
  • 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. – 5/5
  • Be under my DAILY caloric intake maximum on at least 2 days. – 0/2
  • Be no more than 1,250 calories over my total calorie consumption goal each week. no (+3,000)
  • Limit alcohol intake to 2 days per week (for a total of 4 servings per week). 2(4)
  • Drink 64 oz of non-caffeinated water/beverages, 7 days per week. – 7/7
