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 (February 20 – February 26, 2023):

I headed to Orlando, FL, on Wednesday Feb. 22 for the Coastal Magic Convention, where I was a featured blogger and panel moderator. Before the convention started, Liza and I hit Universal Orlando and visited Harry Potter. Friday and Saturday I was busy with the convention. Then on Sunday I drove to Ft. Myers to my folks’ home, where my husband and daughter arrived earlier.

I ate a LOT, drank a lot, but did move a lot. I didn’t have a scale, so I don’t know my weight, but I image it was up. I’ll find out next week.

Weight: Unknown.

Goals: I ate a lot. I drank a lot. I didn’t “exercise” much, but I was so active and moving a lot, so I still closed my rings. I haven’t been even trying to do the meditation breathing while on vacation.

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

Goals for February:

  • Use the breathe mediation app on my watch daily. – 1/7 days
  • Close all three “rings” in Apple Watch, 5 days per week. – 5/5 days
  • Move with purpose (exercise) at least 30 minutes, 5 days per week. – 1/5 days
  • Be under my DAILY caloric intake maximum on at least 2 days. – 1/2 days
  • Be no more than 750 calories over my total calorie consumption goal each week. – no (+6,200 cals)
  • Limit alcohol intake to 2 days per week (for a total of 4 servings per week). – 5 days (12 servings)

My overall goals for 2023 are:

  • To maintain a healthy weight and not exceed my January 1st 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 add yoga and add meditation to my weekly routine. I will do this with the Peloton app, with a goal of yoga at least one time per week. I will do this with the Apple Watch Breathe app, with a goal of a short breathing meditation every day.
  • 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.
So are you ready to lace up your sneakers? Are you ready to up your commit to fit?
