March Roundup (Hits and Misses)

Monday, March 31, 2014

In March, I set the following goals:

- 1000 Fitness Minutes Trophy
- Strength Training 3x/week
- Water 8 cups/day
- Cardio 16x/month (4x/week)
- Burn 7000 Calories
- Step 200,000

So, how'd I do?

FITNESS MINUTES: Well, I gained a 2000 Fitness Minutes Trophy this month! Yay! That goal was met!

STRENGTH TRAINING: I only did strength training about 4x this entire month. So, I still have some work to do in that area... as usual. I don't know why strength training is such a struggle. But, I'm determined to do it with some consistency. I'm going to keep trying until I figure it out.

WATER: I didn't even track my water. Though I started off the month pretty strong in this area, I kind of dropped the ball midway through.

CARDIO: I didn't make my 16x's this month. But, I did get in 12x's. I'll get it next month.

BURN: My SP report says I burned 12,022 calories. So technically, I guess I met that goal. However, that includes FitBit entries. When I set the goal, I didn't even know I could sync my FitBit with SP. So these activity minutes I get through FitBit for just getting steps in, was not expected. Sooooo, I went through my fitness tracker and just added up my formal exercise calories burned and the total was 5,356. No bad at all. Because I really want to know my formal exercise cardio burned, I think I won't sync my FitBit with SP next month.

STEPS: I almost made my goal! LOL I got in 184,154 steps this month. I know I could have made my goal if not for a few days when I was laying in the bed pretty much all day doing absolutely nothing. Soooo, next month it's ON! I'm going to make that goal! I'm thankful for my 10K a Day team challenge which starts back up in April. I've repeated my 200,000 a month goal!

So, that's my March roundup!!

I'm happy for another chance in April to make those goals a reality! Let's Go!!

    I love the idea of the steps-in-a-month challenge. I'm charging up my Fitbit for the first time since the end of November, and will probably start wearing it instead of my Spark activity tracker, which I'm not sure I really like...

    Congrats to reaching those goals, and to getting close to the others!
Sounds like a pretty good month to me.
