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.
