However, I did stay within my calorie goals and managed to be very productive around the house. I have found that workout avoidance guilt is really good for household productivity. So all in all, I didn't go nutters and I'm still on a downward trend. Acceptable.
I can confirm that I lost 1.4 pounds last week. Nothing earth shattering but a completely acceptable loss.
Breakfast - Peach Greek Yogurt & a granola bar (& coffee)
Lunch - Leftover Home Chef Mahi Mahi
Snack - Strawberries and nuts
Dinner - Leftover Home Chef Chimichurri Pork Chop
I continue to feel like Home Chef is a good plan for me right now. I get to cook, the food is healthy and it is portioned well. My next box comes tomorrow and I'm all set to cook on Sunday!
Today I got back to it after not working out since Sunday's Mavs day. I ran on the treadmill for 30 minutes and went about my average pace. Which brings me to a little Fitbit discussion. It sounds like several of my friends are having Fitbit fatigue about the same time. Several different friends posted this article on Facebook over the last few days.
My feelings about the Fitbit are similar to any other device. If it helps you, then use it to its fullest! But if it is hindering you...whether it be the scale, a fitbit, blogging...cut it out. No one, including yourself, should guilt you into using something that is not doing you any good. Even BFF said hers was bugging her. When I asked her why she was wearing it, she didn't know.
Here is why I'm wearing mine: today as I was running on the treadmill (which I hate so very very much) I was having a tough time. The whole first half of the 30 minute run, I was telling myself that it was too hard and I needed to slow down because it was too hard. Wahhh. Each time, I looked at my watch to check my heart rate and every time it was under my target. So I told myself it wasn't too hard, it was just my brain wanting to be lazy. FINALLY, 17 minutes in I hit my target heart rate and it was like my lungs expanded threefold! The last 12 minutes were so much better. If I wouldn't have had my Fitbit, I would have stopped running. I would have convinced myself that my body couldn't take it today. I would have lied to myself. But my Fitbit wouldn't let me do that and I was able to push through it.
I'm meeting the Debster at yoga tonight too. Before I started yoga, I kind of expected it might help my flexibility. I did not expect it to have an effect on my lung capacity, but I really thing it has. YAY
I really wish I would have taken a picture yesterday without my jacket because I LOVED my Gwynnie Bee dress. You can't really tell, but it is a blush lined black lace dress and it was perfect for Kinky Boots which BFF & I went to see last night.
