Weekly Check In

10 Jan

Hi everyone!  Happy Tuesday!

How did you do last week?  I did ok.  I had the week off from work and I spent a few times at the gym – I even returned to Group Power (weight lifting) which felt good to move again!

I went to the gym Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday last week and between elliptical, tread mill and weights I did good.  I left town on Thursday for a girls weekend and came home Saturday evening and no work out on Sunday.

Yesterday (Monday) I made it to the gym for about 45 minutes with a friend.  My day was crazy and the gym time was after work, after I took the dog to the vet, and before I had a meeting to go too…. it was busy but I squeezed in a little time.

Total for the week:  3,600 calories. 

This week is insane too – I literally have something every evening until Saturday.  Tonight is book club at my house to I will not make it to the gym today but hope to get in some time the rest of the week between life stuff. 


Check in with Mari (Bookworm with a View) for the weekly check point to share how you did this last week 😀

    Great job on the calories! I’m not sure how much I burned from Tuesday to Tuesday, but last week Sunday to Saturday, I burned about 1800, which is my weekly goal this year (1500-1800). I’m trying to take a bit easy since last year I hurt myself from doing too much!

    This week is crazy for me too and with my resolution to run every day… it’s hard to time time some days. I have meetings all day today (work… HA), and a dinner tonight. Oh… maybe I should start packing for my trip!!! I resolve to find time though.

    Great job getting to the gym! Good luck with your workouts this week.

    Time to exercise is such a struggle. Maybe that would be a good topic for discussion?

    3600 calories! WOW! I’ve just started training for a 5k and keeping up with it on daily mile, but don’t see an easy way to look at calories for the previous week. I’m going to estimate that last week I burned a little bit over a 1000. Hmmm…I’ve got a ways to go! 🙂

      I have to look into daily mile Shannon! I think that sounds interesting!

        Have you been using something else on the web? Or just a notebook?

          For tracking calories? I use a Polar watch – I have a post about it on this site. You set it to your age, height, weight and it monitors your heart rate and tracks calories. I use it for indoor and outdoor work outs.
