I am giving myself credit for making my steps this week. My fitbit updated on Friday and it totally screwed everything up. It just got stuck; couldn’t sync, it wasn’t counting steps. Finally got it working again on Sunday, after uninstalling and re-installing the app. So just ignore my Friday and Saturday steps.

The update included sleep stages, so you can see about how much time you spend in light sleep, REM, and deep sleep, and compare it to the average for women your age. Apparently while I’m aveage in the amount of time I spend awake and in REM and light sleep, I’m really low in deep sleep. I’m wondering if that’s why I feel tired fairly often. I’m not sure how to fix that yet, but I might try a couple things, like turning off my husband’s fan. Any other suggestions?

This week:

Tuesday – Walk with the dog
Wednesday – Walk with the dog
Thursday – Elliptical, Pilates
Sunday – Walk with the dog
Monday – Walk with the dog, Pilates

Meal plan:

Chicken with acorn squash
Pasta with marinara and bacon
Chicken with potatoes and carrots
Burgers with macaroni salad
Broccoli and peanut stir fry

I’ve decided if I have yummy, filling meals I’m less likely to snack, which is saving calories. Also, leftovers means good lunches, not fast food or convenience food.

Year Fitness Goals:

– Lose weight. Goal – Lose 26 lbs. I haven’t weighed myself. We’re working on the bathroom, so our scale is hanging out somewhere in the living room underneath the boxes, etc. (starting 141.6)

– Run 2 5ks, 1 10K and 1 half. Completed – none.

– Hit my weekly step goal (56,000 steps) for 48 weeks. Weeks completed: 11

  • Sorry about your FitBit, glad it’s fixed. Your menu plan looks good, especially the Burgers with macaroni salad and Broccoli and peanut stir fry.

    My FitBit glitched a few weeks ago but I fiddle around and got it going again and it’s been fine since. It will be three years old in May and I don’t imagine its battery can be recharged forever, but I’m not sure how long it might last. I was very grumpy when it didn’t work! I want my steps to count!
