Fitness Challenge - September Report (Never too late!)

in #life5 years ago (edited)

Would you like to read my September fitness challenge report, which is my eleventh monthly report, because even if October is nearly done, it's never too late to look back at our fitness achievements?

Fitness Challenge - September Report

I haven't written any blog post in October due to my trip in Europe and I realized that it was important to write this September fitness report to keep track of my progress.

So here we are.

I started this personal fitness challenge on the first of November last year, and I have continued each and every month thereafter, and it's going to be a year. I do the best I can to lose weight and I feel much better in my body now than when I started, without too much effort and food restriction.

I use my Samsung smart phone and the Samsung Health app to track and record my fitness progress daily.

I started to write these fitness challenge reports on Steemit in November 2017 and I have published one each month. I document my progress, see at the end of the month my results, so I can be motivated to continue, and be accountable to you and myself.

This challenge consists in doing a 2-kilometer walk and exercising 30 minutes daily (I started with 40 minutes the first six months), I eat healthier and more balanced meals now with less meat, and drink veggie-fruit juices daily.

That's the first time in my life, at 53 years old, that I exercise so consistently, and I can say that I feel great. I am looking forward to exercising every day.

If you do what I do, I believe that you will see good results for you too.

Let's see my results for this tenth month.

Fitness Challenge - September Report

I am glad to report that I have walked my daily 2 kilometers this September almost every day. In fact, I didn't walk on the first and the fourteenth of September, which is only two days missed. I don't remember now why I didn't, maybe bad weather.

I exercised every day, except for three days, the first, the fourteenth and the twenty-second of September.

Let's see what the app is saying for "Walking."

This is when I started in November 2017 and up to July 2018.

Fitness Challenge - September Report - Walking

I walked 28 days in September in 31 sessions, for a total of 58.64 kilometers in 10 hours and 57 minutes.

In August I walked 58.37 kilometers, in July I walked 61.8 kilometers, in June I walked 59.74 kilometers, in May I walked 69.22 kilometers, in April I walked 64.08 kilometers, in March I walked 68.47 kilometers, in February I walked 62.35 kilometers, in January 69.53 kilometers, in December, 66.59 kilometers and in November 62.26 kilometers.

I walked the same as in August.

In 11 months I have walked 701.05 kilometers in total and I am amazed!

Let's have a look at my exercise this September.

These are for the 9 months since November 2017.

I missed 3 days of exercising this month, but I exercised longer than the previous month, when I had many more miss days.

I have exercised for 14 hours and 3 minutes in September, which is an hour more than for August.

I burned 7,939 calories according to the app.

My weight loss results.

Let's see if I successfully lost weight in September.

These are for nine months from November 2017.

Fitness Challenge - September Report - Weight Loss

My minimum weight is nearly the same as last month, 73.3 kilograms. My average weight is also nearly the same as last month, 73.8 kilograms. In fact I successfully lost 100 grams in September, which is still better than gaining a kilogram.

At least I have successfully maintained my weight.

Now, if I look back from where I started in November.

Average weight loss: 80.8 - 73.8 = 7 kilograms

Weight loss: 81.4 (max) - 73.3 (min) = 8.10 kilograms

I am still very pleased with my results for September because I know it's difficult for most people to maintain weight after losing it.

October is over in a few days and I can't wait to see what my numbers are, with a month spent traveling in Europe, mainly walking and not exercising, except for the last week.

I hope that this September fitness report is useful for you and I welcome your feedback in the comment section below.

Wow nice work Michel. I am not sure if Samsung has a smart watch that monitors sleep but I highly recommend it! I have a huawei watch that I wear during sleep and also gives pretty detailed analysis of my sleep. It is another good data point to have some insight on!

Thank you @rhyscn for mentioning this as I haven't monitored my sleep at all. I believe that I sleep 8 hours every nights, but I do not know the details. Maybe there is some bracelet that can be connected to the Samsung app...

This is cool, man. You definitely are good at tracking your fitness progress. I must say though, I miss the informative posts you used to put up regarding Steem-related sites / strategies. What is your plan for content moving forward?

Thank you very much @kenmelendez for your nice comment. My trip to Europe this October messed a lot with my routines and I have to get back to it. I have some researched crypto posts in the pipeline for November, not so much for Steem unless I come across some amazing new tools.

Welcome back from the break.
Time to get fit after the rest? :-)
