Back within range for calories in.
Great calories out.
Great deficit.
Interestingly enough, I had to adjust my calories out count. I wore my BB all day yesterday, and when calculating how much I burned kennel kid walking, it said 656 cals. However, when I entered that for my fitness, then checked the deficit report, I found that BB was reported I'd burned ~ 100 cals LESS than Spark estimated. Usually the BB has me burning MORE than Spark does, so I adjusted accordingly.

It's all a numbers game, isn't it?

It feels good to be reasonably back on track after that brief odd detour. We're coming up on the end of the month (can you believe it?? geez time flies..) so I need to evaluate how August has gone and decide what I want from September. I have a pretty good idea, so we'll see how it all fits together.

The stuffed peppers were delicious! I brought one for lunch today even emoticon I love leftovers, they make extra meals so much easier!

I need to pull together a menu plan and grocery list for the coming week. I didn't do that this past weekend, so we've pretty much run out of basic staples this week. We're out of bananas, pears, peaches, string cheese, grapes, all sorts of veggies, and worst of all.. Greek yogurt.
Who'da thought I'd ever consider fruits and veggies as grocery staples LOL I've come a long way babee!

Let's sashay our way through the rest of the week, shall we? Work it!

    Way to go! Those are awesome numbers!

    I'm right there with you on the veggies - while veggies were part of my life, nothing like the stars of my life they are now. Good point.

    I didn't do any grocery shopping this past weekend, and discovered this morning I am out of EVERYTHING! no fruit, no veggies, no meat, and only 2 eggs. So Not Good!

    Great job! I'm curious, you show protein powder with your coffee. Do you put it in your coffee? I had never thought of doing that and mix it in my yogurt, but putting it in coffee might be a good idea.

    Sashay what a good word that I seldom use! And it's a homophone! Better yet!

    I just came home from the market. Mainly fruits and veggies for me, too. :)
