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 (May 29 – June 4, 2023):

I was on the road from Wednesday through Sunday last week. We went down to the Philadelphia area for my niece’s high school graduation. It was a beautiful ceremony, and I’m so proud of her. My whole family was there together, first time since last summer. We ate A LOT of food and desserts. I had lots to drink. I did get out and walk most days, but didn’t do well with my stretching. Not sure how I was down a pound, except that last week, I gained two pounds all after one day, so my guess it that I’m really at the same weight as last week.

Weight: I was down 1 pound.

Goals: I continue to keep up with the exercise and stretching. I don’t do well with food and drink.

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

Goals for May/June:

  • Stretch for 10 minutes 5 days per week. – 3/5 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. – 5/5 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 (+4,116 cals)
  • Limit alcohol intake to 2 days per week (for a total of 4 servings per week).– 5 days (11 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?
