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 (July 18 – July 24, 2022):

Last week was pretty quiet until the weekend. I did well during the week, but not as good on the weekend (however better than previous weeks). We had old friends visit, the couple through how my husband and I met. We hadn’t seen them in about seven years. It was so good to catch up and just hang out. We had a big BBQ on Saturday, inviting family and friends.

Weight: I was DOWN 0.8 pounds for the week, which is a good start. Like I said, I didn’t meet all my goals, but I did a lot better. I ended up being up 0.5 pounds for July and up 2.8 pounds for the year.

Goals: I met my exercise goals (including one short yoga session), but not my calorie/food goals. My goal was NO alcohol, but I ended up having some. I did well with eating for the most part, making better decisions, especially if I knew I would have a big meal on a given day.

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 July:

  • Use my in-home yoga OR meditation app one day per week. – 1/1
  • Close all three “rings” in Apple Watch, 5 days per week. – 5/5
  • 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. – 3/2
  • Be no more than 1,250 calories over my total calorie consumption goal each week. – no (+1,550)
  • Limit alcohol intake to 2 days per week (for a total of 4 servings per week). – 3(3.5)* 
    • *Goal for this week was NO drinks.
So are you ready to lace up your sneakers? Are you ready to up your commit to fit?
