Things were going really well up til yesterday. I ate at a friends house who is doing Keto. I am not doing Keto. I ate her food as it is very good, but she gave me 2 servings of the food and then a dessert. So I ended up gaining almost a whole pound back. I am at a loss. I know I should not have had 2 servings but she dished up the bowls and had mine ready to go. I just couldn't refuse. I didn't know what to do so I ate it. It is my own fault. She had it packed full off veggies so I thought I would be ok. I am going to have to lose a whole pound again. I am not happy about it but I have no one to blame but myself. I should have told her I wanted only one serving.
On another note... I got a Fitbit Surge. It is used but it works so well. I am so happy with it. I was constantly forgetting my phone which had my step tracker on it so my steps were not accurate. I love my Fitbit. I can't imagine life without it now. I charged it for the first time yesterday. It charged really quickly. I thought it would take forever. I have it synced with SparkPeople and it is working great. The only thing I don't like about it is that it doesn't separate the fitness minutes from the daily activity minutes. It just lumps them all together. I use the Fitbit to track workouts so I am seeing my activity levels change on the Fitbit itself. It just isn't tracking it in spark as actual workout. I am learning though. I will just add my workout minutes to my other goals trackers and figure it out that way. I am really happy with my activity levels. I am doing well. I just need to workout for more than 10 minutes a day. Which is what I did yesterday.
I really hope everyone meets their fitness goals and weight loss goals. My Mom keeps saying she is going to go on a diet and lose weight but hasn't yet. I guess she just isn't ready. I am worried about her health.
Yes I seem to jump all over the place in my blogs but there are really for my journey and what I am thinking about at the time I write this. I love being able to blog my feelings. I need to actually start blogging more. It will really help. I am going to try and make it a habit to walk in the mornings. I think I can do so much if I am just walking and getting out there. It will be hard in the winter time but I think I can do it. I am sure I can become dedicated enough to do it even during the winter unless they are saying don't be outside. Sometimes that happens. I do live in Michigan where it gets really cold in the winter.
