A Better Me, Week 40

(Happy belated Canada Day)

We've had some family fun the past few days, which is why my weekly update is late.

I was back for another Saturday weigh-in and was down 1 lb.  That's 79.3 lbs total...I know, so close to 80!  That's something to look forward to this week :)

So far, things have been slow for me this week.  We went to the US yesterday, I know ironic to spend Canada Day in the States.  Of course, a trip to the US wouldn't be the same without lunch at Olive Garden.  Did you know there's nothing that's really points friendly at Olive Garden?  Shocker, right?  I ended up having the cheese ravioli in marinara sauce...the lunch-sized portion for a whopping 13 points.  Thankfully, I couldn't eat it all and only managed about 2/3 of the serving which dropped the points value.  But add in a bread stick and some salad and I'm right back up there.  On the flip side, I was able to track my activity using my new FitBit!  I love this handy little tracker Mr. Twingle bought me as a belated birthday gift.  It tracks my steps, active minutes, sleep patterns and more.  I was able to see that I walked over 8000 steps yesterday!  That's pretty crazy for a day of grocery shopping.   I don't usually put in my walking for Activity Points, but I know that all the walking throughout the day will help burn off the extra calories I really didn't need...but were oh, so good!

I've also restarted the 30-day squat challenge.  The one I was doing previously was too aggressive and I was hurting.  I could barely move most days and it hurt to try and sit to go to the bathroom.  This new one doesn't seem so bad, I guess only time will tell.

Well, it's back to work for me today, so I hope you all enjoy the rest of your week.
