Thank You Walkadoo

The other day I told you all about Walkadoo, and well today I received the elusive Unlimited Card. With the Unlimited Card, you get a point for every 40 steps you take. Well game on and challenge accepted.

Add in the fact that I am taking part in a step derby, and currently in third place it gave me all the more reason to step it up. And, step it up I did. I received 2 fitbit badges today.

The first badge:

Yeah, that’s right I took 25,000 steps today. They were done before 6pm. Yeah, I have been moving a lot today. Two hours on the treadmill split into 2, 1 hour sessions, and a 1 hour Leslie Sansone video. Oh, and then there was the walking around the grocery store and what not.

And, finally I’ve reached this badge:

What! 30,000 steps. Yeah, my legs are already feeling it, but hey I’m rocking this thing. And, I’ve got over 100,000 steps in the last 7 days. That’s insane. Of course this will not be an everyday kind of thing, but thanks to Walkadoo, it was a thing for today.

The next badge levels are 35,000 and 40,000. I’m not sure when, but I’ll be working towards them sometime soon.




Week 16 Recap

With Sunday being the end of month 4 and doing the recap, I usually do the weekly recap on Monday, but I was so excited about my t-shirt that I forgot.

So the results for week 16:

  • 87,998 steps
  • 12,645 daily steps average
  • 20,720 calories burned
  • 2,984 daily average calories burned
  • 39.14 miles
  • 5.62 daily average miles
  • 8 hours 18 minutes very active
  • 74 minutes very active daily average
  • 9,578 calorie deficit
  • 0.4 pounds lost

It was a pretty good week stats wise, I did find myself kind of dragging when it came to motivate myself to workout, but once I started I completed it and sometimes with some extra.

Here’s to a great upcoming week.

Month 4 Recap

Today starts my 5th month since I decided to make a change in my life. A change to be healthier, fitter, leaner, and more active. I can’t believe 4 months have sailed by already, and yet it also seems like a lifetime ago that I decided to make a change.

This past month has seen lots of challenges for me. My husband was home for some of the month which caused for some changes and adjustments in my workout routine, I went away for the weekend which again caused some adjustments to my plans, and of course I’ve been battling a respiratory infection that seems to want to hold on. Even, with these situations coming up,I’ve been able to keep going, and making sure to get my workouts in even if they had to change from what was originally planned, and I’m continuing to make healthier food choices.

This past month I’ve lost another 5 inches, which brings my total inches lost 21.  That’s pretty awesome, I’m down 2 pants sizes, and everything is definitely fitting me better. This month the number on the scale hasn’t really moved much, which is a bit discouraging, but I know I’m getting leaner because I’m still losing inches. I’ve lost a total of 25 pounds over the last 4 months, which is nothing to be upset about. That’s a lot of weight, and I know that I didn’t put the weight on over night so it’s not going to come off over night.  I need to be patient, not lose focus, and keep working. The weight will come off it’s just going to take time and hard work, both are something I have and can do.

I’ve made it through 4 months and know that I have a lifetime in me.
