Good Week

Sunday, July 28, 2013

Moved my ticker down 3.2 lbs. today! (That includes the .6 from the 2 week vacay.) Still makes it a good week:) No alcohol since vacation has made a big difference, as well as eating in 7 of last 8 nights.

Great 3 mile hike today. If I count it as a "hike climbing hills carrying less than 10 lbs." it is 720 cal. If I track the mileage and time (65 min.) it only gives me 320 cal. I counted the lower amount, and whatever over is all good I guess. Have also tried some of the SP abs, pilates, and yoga videos this week in addition to my walking or elliptical and weight machines. I love the 20 minute Yogalites workout, think I will order the video when I get paid.

Also thinking about a FitBit. If anyone out there reading this is using one, please let me know how it's working for you. I walk a lot at work going to classrooms and picking up students, and it's a big building. I know that's not cardio, but I would be interested in how many steps. And maybe it would give me a better estimate of whether walks like today are a hike or a 3 mile walk.

Looking forward to another good week, Hopefully the rain has moved out for a while so I can spend more time outdoors,

Thanks to team members who have replied to my blog and posts and offered their support. It really helps.

    Congrats on the ticker moving downward. I, too, am finding that staying AF helps keep the ticker heading in the downward direction. emoticon

    Way to go, Annie! I don't have a fitbit, but I know that a lot of people here on Spark do and really like them. Have a great week!
