#FitReaders: Weekly Check-in Feb 6 2015
Hey FitReaders! It is time for your weekly check-in (feel free to use whatever day you want to check-in–these posts will be going up on Fridays)! How are you doing this week? Did you get a day, 2 days, 3 days of exercise? Are you on track with your other health goals! I am so very proud of you for making the effort to get heart healthy and putting exercise in your life. We can do it!
This week I had a minor setback and a equal up. I strained something in my back last Saturday. I was going about my day as usual and felt something “tweak” (for lack of a better word) and by Saturday night I was pretty sure that my back hated me. It was a little better Sunday but not great. I went to see the chiropractor on Monday and she asked me to give it 2 weeks of light walking. To lower my steps (4000 to 6000) and to spread them out in 5 to 10 min increments. So I am doing that now and it really is starting to feel better. I will be on my feet all day Saturday though and that should be interesting. I asked about that and she said it should be fine as long as I stretch and rest as much as possible.
So Step Totals:
- Thursday: 9554
- Friday: 8010
- Saturday: 4494
- Sunday: 4674
- Monday: 8459 (book club night–this wasn’t bright)
- Tuesday: 6560
- Wednesday: 5436
So remember me saying I had gained in Jan even though I stayed in plan calories (aka enough to lose 2 pounds a month). I actually gained 3lbs (I started Jan at 201.6 and ended at 204.1). Well I weighed in today and I was back to 201.6. That was after I quit tracking calories for those days (what can I say I was little disheartened). I called my old OBGYN (she is now a holistic therapist) and she gave me some hormone friendly eating plans that don’t require counting. I will still put it in lose-it but only at the end of the day when I am done. I am going to try it the month of Feb and see if it works better for me 🙂
So how was your week?
