Reader's Workout - May in Review

I was doing post earlier in the month with goals for the month and realized I wasn't hitting those goals.  So now I'm going to just focus on how the month went.

For May, I wanted to really try to make my step goal every day. Weekends are normally really hard for me (I'm lazy) but it was a busy month.  So as of today (5/26) there have only been 3 days where I haven't hit my step goal. I went on vacation for a long weekend Thursday-Monday and averaged around 13,500 steps a day.  My best day was Saturday where I hit 20,718.  Even with all the walking I did, I must have done more eating since I gained 3.8 lbs..

I started to do a modified bullet journal and it's been keeping me on track with tracking my calories. I had been slacking on tracking my calorie intake. I started the month with asking myself to track just breakfast and lunch.  I did really well with that for a week so I added a checkbox for dinner. I only required myself to track two of the meals.  Once that wasn't a problem I'm now up to tracking all three meals.

I haven't been getting to the gym, I hurt my ankle (which made for an interesting vacation of walking). I've been trying to stretch each night, but it's not going well.  I haven't seen the inside of the gym in a month, but I have a plan to get back in June. Again I'll ease myself back into it, taking care not to mess my ankle up.


  1. I love the idea of a bullet journal for that kind of tracking. Good luck getting back to the gym.

  2. Thanks! It's been really helpful in keeping organized with everything.
