I Love My Fitbit!

..Or obsessed with it may be more accurate. 🙂 It tracks my calories, steps, flights of stairs, sleep patterns and calories burned. It’s great and it really is motivating. I went for a walk this morning around the local high school track but it was blazing hot so I felt really tired after doing a mile (it was 94 degrees!). I find myself wanting to do the stairs or walk more though to see it all adding up on my dashboard. I now even run upstairs myself when I forget something in my bedroom instead of asking my daughter to do it! Ha! And the sleep function is amazing. It tells you how long it takes you to fall asleep and how well you slept by recording the number of times you were restless or woke up and when. Love it! Last night I slept 7 hours and 30 minutes which is the most I have slept in a row in quite a while and I wonder if it has to do with my new eating plan..?

Do you own a Fitbit or another type of fitness tracking device?

Day Three..

Today is day three and from now on I will no longer be counting days but I just wanted to get myself focused that I am on a diet of sorts, keeping track of my new way of eating. It is only 2:45 so I have a lot of the day left but just checking in to say that I have booked a vacation to Mexico for August so I better get crackin’!! We leave in less than six weeks so I have about five weeks to get myself in bikini shape. That’s a scary thought after yesterday’s post (and quite a stretch) but one can dream. I must say it is much more motivating!! My goal is to lose at least ten pounds and a few inches. Wish me luck!!

**update

Today was a good day overall! Here’s what I ate:

Breakfast – nectarine, started drinking my first 32 oz of water

Lunch – cherries, finished water, cheese stick

Dinner – sautéed some grass-fed beef and onions in coconut oil and cumin. Ate that with plain yogurt and a slice of havarti cheese. Also, a salad consisting of Romaine, almonds, raisins,, fresh chopped basil and balsamic dressing. Oh and an orange pepper (so good!). More cherries.

That’s it! I was very tired though. At some point during the day it hit me so hard that I lay down on a pile of folded laundry on a the love seat. I was crammed into the corner in a very uncomfortable position but I was too exhausted to either move the clothes or walk up the steps to my bed. I think I slept about 10min before I got a telephone call. It’s now almost 11pm and I find myself very, very tired again. I have no sheets on my bed but I don’t think I have the energy to put them on.. zzzzzzzzzz
