#FitReaders Check-In

FitReaders2016
  • This check-in is for April 15th – 21st.
  • With the weight loss program, I’ve had slightly different goals than the ones I’ve had while participating in Fit Readers.  I realized by having two different sets of goals, I’m not being fair to myself.  So, I’ve edited the goals below to reflect my goals with the program.
  • I’ve managed to keep 2 lbs. off so far this week.  Fingers crossed that that doesn’t change by the end of the weekend.  I’m hoping it’s because I’m in week 3 of the I Quit Sugar plan, which is the week I had to cut out sugar completely.  The first two weeks were all about cutting back and making small changes.
  • Before, I would only increase my step goal when I eventually met my step goal for that week.  That meant that I sometimes went months without increasing my step goal.  With the new program, I’m holding myself more accountable and increasing it each week regardless of whether or not I meet it.  I’m also making a point of hitting my step goal each day before I allow myself to be “lazy”, which, barring injury or illness, means I’ll be more likely to at least meet that minimum goal.
  • This week, my goal was to average 4k steps per day (I’m in week 4 of the program, but I gave myself an extra week to quit sugar since I started this right in the middle of moving; hence the difference, in case you noticed).  That’s an easy goal, I know, but the point of going back to lower steps is to ensure I achieve my goals the first few weeks, making it more likely that I won’t give up or get discouraged.
