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 (August 15 – August 21, 2022):

More of the same. However, I did manage to stick with most of my food-related goals, which resulted in a loss. That’s positive. I was a little surprised because I had several food-centric get togethers, especially over the weekend. My husband and I went out for fancy dinner to celebrate our 24th wedding anniversary. I had prime rib (but only ate half) and enjoyed a couple peartinis. I also devoured their blood orange creme brûlée. On Sunday my daughter and I enjoyed seeing Anastasia (the musical) down in Boston.

Weight: I was down 1.7 lbs, which is what I was up the past two weeks, so I’m moving in the right direction.

Goals: As I mentioned, I did a lot better with my caloric intake – although I did have several alcoholic beverages on the weekend. I got in another 30 minute yoga class this week and felt really good. I’m also learning pickleball, and we played for a bit on Thursday.

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 August:

  • 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. – 6/5
  • 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. – 3/2
  • Be no more than 1,250 calories over my total calorie consumption goal each week. – yes (+1,118)
  • Limit alcohol intake to 2 days per week (for a total of 4 servings per week). – 3(7)
So are you ready to lace up your sneakers? Are you ready to up your commit to fit?
