Greetings friends!

Update: I was not able to reach out to the winner from the weekend challenge until last night. So it will take a little longer to post the winner. My day yesterday totally got away from me. My apologies.

We are really coming down to the wire in this one, aren't we? Time flies. And today is another step challenge to boot. The target today is your normal daily step goal or past seven day average plus an extra 1,000 steps. What better way to celebrate making it to the middle of the week than by getting outdoors when you can and take some time for yourself?

How are you doing?

Doing fantastic. Got my walk done a little while ago.

Katie H.

It was a beautiful morning for a walk! I've found that if my. 4 year old rides her bike then I can actually get in a decent walk. It's been fun to go together. Still got a few lbs to go, but I'm hopeful that I will make it!

8 days left. I just did a progress weigh-in and I still have 1.4lbs to go. I think I can do it as long as I stay focused! WE GOT THIS!!

How’s everyone doing?? On track to hit your target weight?

  • Anyone else plan out their week on Sundays? I hate scrambling to figure out what to do. Planning ahead in food and fitness helps me!

Food yes. Workouts depend on work. If I only work a 12 hour shift I get up at 0600 and get home at 2200. I'm too tired to workout. If I work a long shift 36-56 hours, well... it's pretty much just as much walking as I can do. On my days off it's pretty much the same every day 1 hour on the treadmill, and then a variety of strength training.

Sorry about the error on yesterday's Check In post. The challenge was 500 extra steps over your normal daily step goal, or past seven day average. I mistakenly had 750. I just randomly selected a winner so if you commented on the post, please be sure to check your email!

As we head into another weekend, remember this quick tips to stay on track.

- Drink your water!

- Treat the weekend like any other day. Track your food. And plan ahead for your meals, if possible. Travel with snacks if you're going to be out and about.

- If you're dining out, try to check out the menu beforehand. Go ahead and log/track that meal then plan your day around it. Look for lean proteins (chicken without skin, for example), steamed vs creamed, baked vs fried, etc.

And remember - it's what we do MOST of the time that matters most. If you eat something out of the ordinary, I promise you it's not the end of the world. For it's what we do most of the time versus some of the time that makes the biggest difference.

There is another step challenge this weekend. The target is 17,500 steps (combined). Commit and comment on this post if you plan on giving it your all to finish the challenge!

So my Fitbit has officially stopped holding a charge, which is rather bad timing. What kind of watches do you have to track exercise and steps to keep you motivated? Any suggestions on a new one for me?? I currently have the charge 2 I believe.

I have an Apple Watch, too. And closing out my three rings (exercise, move, stand) each day keeps me really motivated.

Rachel M.

Thanks everyone! I’ll keep this in mind as I’m looking!
