What I did last week: June 11-June 17

Today is weigh-in day and I'm not sure how I'm going to do. My goal is to at least lose the pound I gained last week.  I missed some days of tracking over the weekend and I felt very off-track. I always have a hard time when I'm around family and especially when there are "fun" foods available that I don't usually have around.

On the positive side, I had a pretty good exercise week. I registered for a sprint triathlon next Wednesday evening (right before I leave for Fitbloggin'), and that has helped me to feel more focused on training. I'm not sure how the run will go but I can always walk the 5K if I have to. I have been doing a lot of swimming and biking, so those parts should be no problem. Last week was a very swim-focused week.  I think for weight loss, biking and running are better than swimming, so that's another reason I'm not sure I'll see great results today.

Exercise for the week:

Wednesday: Evening walk, 10,065 steps total
Thursday: 1-mile open-water swim, 14,112 steps
Friday: 45-minute early-morning lap swim, 3,377 steps*
Saturday: Pilates Circuit class, 7,315 steps**
Sunday: Playing with nephews, 8,072 steps**
Monday: 30-minute early-morning lap swim, 7121 steps
Tuesday: Yoga class, 12,508 steps

* forgot to charge my band and it didn't record a lot of the day
** took band off because I was in and out of the pool

I think if it hadn't been for the band issues above, I would have hit my 10,000 step goal.

I'll be back later today or tomorrow to post -- I have an evening event so I'm not sure which.

    That might be true, not sure. But you can consistently swim without hurting yourself. And if you are pushing yourself speed wise and using your arms, very good workout.
