I’m definitely happy with a loss this week, as my eating/drinking has been a bit all over the board. Yesterday after the memorial service, I came home, skipped dinner, and ended up having five beers and two cigarettes for dinner. 😛 NOT my finest moment, but I just wanted to sit on the back deck by myself and cry for awhile, so I did. I definitely want to focus this week on getting quality calories (as opposed to empty calories!) into my body.

Goals for this coming week:

Average Daily Steps – 6,500/day – I still want to work on upping my daily steps. This past week I was about 6k, 5k, 6k, 11k, 6k, 7k, 4k.

Average Calorie Deficit – 750/day (which would equate to 1.5#/week) – I need to stay diligent about tracking my food and make sure I’m counting every bite of Stella’s food that goes in my mouth! I also want to make sure I’m eating more veggies every day.

Total # Floors Climbed – 100. I figured out this week that FitBit requires a 10′ elevation gain at a time to count it as a “floor” – and a lot of times my stairs don’t quite cut it. BUT, if I bend my knees at the bottom before I start, then I get credit for the flight. Annoying, but it works, and it means I do a few extra squats every day!

Weekly Tip:

Chug a glass of water a few minutes before meal time! This helps to “fill” you up before you start eating, so it will slow down your food intake and allow you time to figure out if you’re actually still hungry (not to mention it will help to hydrate you).


  1. Whoohoo! Tha’ts so awesome! Super proud!!!

    Great work! I was wondering why my FitBit doesn’t always count my stairs- will have to try the squat first method!

    1. LOL, ya, I’m sure it looks weird to those around me, but if I remember, I always try to squat at the bottom and do a little hop at the top and then I always get credit for the flight! 🙂

  3. LOL!

    I’m way behind in commenting, and have so much to comment on over your last posts, but I had to just hop in and laugh at you squatting before starting your stair climb. I feel like this is something totally neurotic that I would do 🙂

    You’re a closet smoker too, huh? 🙂 I told my husband I’m planning on a cigarette in June with my girlfriends for our annual wine trip. I haven’t had one in over a year and a half. He laughed and said that I’m the only person that would plan something like that.

    So sorry about the recent news. I am praying for his sweet little soul everyday and thinking about him. I haven’t quite allowed myself to process this enough for commenting, but don’t think I am not thinking about you and everyone else in his life. Xo

    1. Totally a closet smoker. 🙂 I never tried a cig until I was 19 in college. Used them as a way to drink less (b/c I was broke) and still get a buzz…then to help me lose weight. Oops. Now I’ll easily go a year without having one before decided F*IT and get drunk and smoke a cpl…which always makes me feel like shit the next day. Oops!! 🙂

  4. Go Josey!

  5. Without discounting the reasons behind it, five beers? We totally need to have “dinner” together one day.

    1. LOL, as long as you’re “eating dinner” with me, I’m in! 🙂

  6. Great work! Good for you for sticking with it!
