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 25 – May 1, 2022):
This week was a little better. My kids were on school vacation week, but we didn’t go anywhere (I was working). My son had two lacrosse games (in the cold and rain!). I joined a virtual conversation with one of my favorite authors, Milla Vane (aka Meljean Brook) on Saturday morning. I also ran errands and took my daughter driving. It was a pretty low key week.
Weight: Down 0.4 pounds.
Goals: I did get in my walking and closed my rings most of the week. I didn’t do as well as I had hoped with “questioning my decisions” when eating. I still overate a lot. But the movement helped keep my weight stable.
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 April/May:
- Use my in-home yoga two days per week. – 0/2
