My apologies to anyone who actually reads this. I totally have been traveling every other week and then not posting. Here is a post though. I have been working hard at my current goal post being obese. That goal has a date attached to it which is my Birthday in November. As of today I am Halfway to my goal from when I set it which was 15lbs ago. I am actually 16lbs down but lets just call it half. So the goal is 210 by my birthday. I feel pretty good about it. Definitely think I will make it.

Fit bit is still my favorite tool for keeping me on course. My scale gives me three fun numbers to play with. My weight, body fat percentage and my BMI. Sure people say BMI is bullshit and it might very well be but you know what is cool watching all these numbers go down. I will take it.

Of course as I lose weight my fitbit page adjusts my calorie intake to reflect how much I should eat to meet my goal. That number also keeps going down which means I need to make some sacrifices in my eating or kick up my activity level. First compromise which has worked well is switching from my beloved Venti Chai Latte to a Tall (or Mezzo as they call it here). That little move shaves off 120 calories each drink and since I am an addict I have 2 a day and that saves me 240 calories. That is awesome. Means I can eat like half a sausage or something stupid.

My daily meals routine is roughly the same.

Breakfast: 2 pieces of Bacon and 1 egg

Morning Snack: Banana and a tall chai latte

Lunch: 2 sausage and some peppers. onions and mushrooms with tomato sauce

Afternoon Snack: tall chai latte

Dinner: Beef stew with carrots, mushrooms and onions

Desert: Maybe another Banana

Activity for me is on average 10k steps. Though I am working hard to get more than that in a day to help offset the ever decreasing calories I am able to have with my lower weight. More activity means more food and I like this reward.

Also with Winter looming ahead I need to find an activity that will replace some of the walking that will not be happening in the snow. Walking was easy and getting myself to walk more wasnt much of a challenge. But what to do when walking isnt an option. Considering more Yoga, some of those 30 day challenges or maybe even P90X.

I am hoping my all or nothing behavior will kick in for one of these and I will ride the train to awesome fitness. We will see.

Till next time stay groovy.
