Weekly Recap 4

Yesterday, I didn’t do my weekly recap, because it was a big day, it marked the end of my first month on this journey.

I thought I’d go over my results from this past week. It was another week where things went well, even though I faced a few challenges. I wasn’t feeling completely motivated on some days, and had to overcome a slight weight gain, although there was a reason behind the slight gain.

I overcame the small obstacles, and powered through the week, and had a successful week. Any week that I stay committed to this new lifestyle is a success.

Here are last weeks stats:

  • 56,464 total steps
  • 7,547 daily average
  • 20,131 calories burned
  • 2,923 daily average calories burned
  • 24.69 miles walked
  • 3.31 daily average miles walked
  • 3 hours 21 minutes of very active activity
  • 27 minutes daily average of very active minutes
  • 8,043 calorie deficit
  • 1.6 pounds lost

Some of these numbers are lower than last week, but still above the goals I had set for myself for the week. I love the fact that I’m finding ways to become more active in my daily life along with incorporating daily workouts into my day.

  1. Hi! I just started following your blog! Keep up the great work-it’s inspiring! I love the breakdown of each stat-it’s helpful to see how far you’ve come! Do you use a device to track it or do you just use a pedometer? I am trying to figure out what the best way to start would be, I have a long journey ahead!

    • Thank you so much. I started the blog as a way to hold myself accountable, I mean strangers are reading this and could be judging me, also to keep myself motivated by posting my successes and struggles and seeing that others are going through the same thing. I use a Fitbit Flex, which I love I wear it on my wrist it tracks steps, miles, calories burned, and even my sleep. Although, they just came out with a new one that you wear on your wrist called the Force which in addition to all the Flex does it keeps track of stairs climbed and is also a watch. I kind of want it but haven’t had my Flex that long and there really is no reason for me to upgrade yet. The Fitbit also has an app for the iPhone and some androids, and I use that to track my progress through the day and to also record my calories eaten. I love it. It’s a constant reminder that I need to keep being active because I see it on my wrist and if all of the lights are not lit up I know that I haven’t reached my personal goal. You can set goals for steps, miles, active minutes, and calories burned. In the last month I’ve increased my daily step goal by 2,000 steps, my miles by 1/2 a mile, calories burned by 500, and have doubled my goal for active minutes.
      It’s a long journey and, I too have a long way to go, but I’m determined to make it.
      And, if you ever need some motivation I’m here, because I know there will be days that I’ll need it that’s for sure.
