AM: 11/17/14

Good afternoon and Happy Monday!

It's a gray, cold, and dreary day here in central Pennsylvania- I hope the weather is better where you are!

Monday- Came home from Disney- does rushing through the airport count as a workout? ;-)
Tuesday- Rest day
Wednesday- 30 minutes on the bike
Thursday- 15 minutes on the elliptical, 15 minutes on the bike
Friday- Rest day
Saturday- Rest day
Sunday- 20 minutes on the bike, 10 minutes on the elliptical, light weights

As you can see, I've been slowly incorporating the elliptical into my training. I say slowly because Edna (that's what I've named my cranky right foot) acts up sometimes and I have to switch to the bike which doesn't hurt my foot at all. That's the plan right now; if it hurts, stop. So I am slowly working back up to walking and running. Very, very slowly.

Also, as you may remember from last week, I bought myself a new ActiveLink 2.0 from Weight Watchers. I am still in the "assessment" phase (for the next seven days) so I'll have more to report next week. But, it also tracks my sleep and I was really intrigued by the data collected. I can't wait to have more information about my activity and sleeping patterns- I've never really looked at it before so hopefully it will give me useful feedback.

Last night's sleep pattern

We weren't traveling this weekend (shocking, I know!) so I was able to manage my spaces pretty well and stick to my daily points target- most days. Lately, I've been loving the hidden menu from Panera- especially the Power Chicken Bowl: chicken, veggies, hummus. Ah-mazing. Seriously. Just try it.

Perfection in a bowl.

146.4 as of 11/5/14 weigh-in
-.4 since last week
-44 since January 2013
-55.6 since HW

By some miracle, I lost .4 last week with -81 PPV left. Sometimes, there just is no rational explanation for weight loss- but I'm still excited about it :-)

QOTD: Do you use an activity monitor like the ActiveLink or Fitbit? Does it motivate you to move more? 


  1. I am so mad. The WW here in SC have decide not to sell the new Active Link.
