For the month of February, I’m hoping to:
- get my blue dot at least 24 out of 28 days this month
- exercise at least three times each week
- exceed my new FitPoints goal of 100 points per week
- attempt to only use weeklies on days that I work out
I’ve decided that if I make my February and March goals, I’m going to reward myself by upgrading to the FitBit Charge 2 around mid-April.
Week in Review
I got my blue dot 7 out of 7 days this week.
(By the way, I originally got my certified refurbished Kinect for $40, but it looks like it’s on sale for $30 right now.) I also walked around my living room for 49 minutes (while reading Wolfsbane, my current eBook from the library) in order to get my step goal on Sunday. Even though my FitBit Charge HR auto-recognized it as “exercise” I’m not really labeling it as such here.
Due to all of that exercise, I had a total of 120 FitPoints this week. I think I’m going to stick with my goal of 100 FitPoints for the time being. It just seems like a solidly attainable goal right now. As my journey progresses, I’ll increase it if I start blowing this goal out of the water.
At weigh-in, I lost 3.2 pounds! That puts me at a total of 10.8 pounds lost so far (since 2/11/2017). Which also means I lost at least 10 pounds within my first two months, so I’ll be getting an additional 2 months of the program for free. Feels good.
Trials and Tribulations
This past weekend we drove to Roanoke, VA. for roller derby (my partner was an alternate for the bout). I packed a cooler full of healthy snacks so that I wouldn’t make hurried bad decisions at rest stops and gas stations. I included mozzarella string cheese (3 SP), strawberries, blueberries, carrots, bananas, apples, and PB2 (1 SP) mixed into fat free Cool Whip (1 SP).
I planned ahead both lunch (Panera chicken caesar salad with no croutons, add spinach) and dinner (soft taco, rice & beans at a Tex-Mex restaurant) on Saturday by checking out their menus online the day before we left. I also pre-packed a BAW (3 SP) and 1/4 cup syrup (1 SP) for my breakfast Sunday morning because even though the hotel had a complimentary breakfast, I wasn’t sure there would actually be anything there that was a good option for me.
Here’s some of the food I ate this week:
Lunch & Snacks
Snack hack: since I don’t like drinking full glasses of milk, I measured out just enough for dipping cookies, which turned out to be 0 points.
