Like a BOSS

Okaaaaay, so maybe it's been almost a week since I've paid any attention to any blogs.  I can at least say (proudly) that the reason I've been absent for the past week is that every second of the day that I'm not really busy with work I've been walking my ass off.  Every time I clear out my inbox, I get up to stretch my legs, even if it's just to walk to the other side of the building and back.  I'm aiming for at least 30 minutes a day, but it's been more like an hour, even though a lot of that is walking back and forth to the bathroom from all the water I drink  :)  I swear I'm in there 10 times/day.

Yesterday I achieved a new record for steps taken/miles traveled in one day = 10,090!  Which is right around 4.5 miles.  The proof, thanks to my lovely fitbit:

I was in bed and it was dark  :)

This week has been a really good food week too...I've been cooking up a storm and staying well below my goal amounts of fat/calories/carbs/sugars.  Monday was turkey kielbasa with peppers & squash.  Look at all these beautiful veggies!!

Tuesday was chicken piccata with a summer vegetable gratin.  I really meant to take a picture of that one because it was so purdy, ate it.  Last night was chicken cacciatore, and tonight is eggplant parmesan with steamed green beans.  And because I could SMELL these babies while walking through the produce section of the store, I grabbed some strawberries too

...and now I'm starving.  

One last teensy tiny little detail...I've lost 30 pounds  :)  I stepped on the scale this morning and saw 312.0 staring back at me.  So I got off and back on again...and again.  Three times in a row, and that's good enough for me!  

Okay, I guess technically I'm 0.2 lbs away from the full 30 pounds, but myfitnesspal is rounding in my favor, so I am too.

Good evening, all!



  1. Good job! You're doing AWESOME!

  2. WOO HOO!!! That is ALL so totally awesome! Hey, anytime taking care of your health means you are too busy to read blogs, that is exactly what you should be doing!!! :-D The food sound delish, and I'm so glad you are loving your fitbit. :-)

  3. yay for you! I'm so happy for you! :)

    I've been trying to be more open with cooking my meals at night--but i'm so afraid of over eating. it's an adjustment for me, for sure. i only know how to cook large portions, and have trouble wrapping my head around small meals. and if it's there--i tend to eat it.

    btw, in regards to walking, the standard rule of thumb used to be 2,000 steps = a mile, and 10,00- steps is five miles. but then again, maybe things have changed in that respect?

  4. 30 lbs! Yay! You're making awesome looking meals and doing all that walking! I'm afraid that if I get a fitbit, it's going to tell me that I hardly walk at all. But I still want one.
    You're doing so well!

  5. oh yes, I always round up! Good job! The food sounds great.

  6. When you are working on your weight loss, it is very important to set right goals. The following resource was of great help for me – Among other interesting things, I have also read there a lot about diets and proper nutrition. I even started taking one of the supplements they wrote about. I was pleasantly surprised when I’ve noticed first results. My strength and endurance went up, making my workouts much more effective. My shape has improved and I’ve lost weight without any special diet.
