Fitbit Zip Update, Weekend Fun, and Weekly Meals

I finally reached my goal of 70,000 weekly steps. Here is my Fitbit weekly update report.


We all have been under the weather for several weeks, and I always fell short of my goal. While I walked 10,000 steps most days, I walked less on some days and therefore never reached 70,000 weekly steps.

I really love my Fitbit to keep track of how many steps I walk each day. It’s really motivating me to move more, and I often walk a bit more because I know I’m keeping track of my steps… It was definitely one of my best investments lately… Smile

In addition to my brisk daily walks, I currently take two barre classes per week and do two strength workouts at the gym per week. I feel it’s a good balance, and I really enjoy my walks. They are so good for my body and soul! I can’t wait to add some hikes to my routine soon and hopefully increase my steps and mileage significantly.

The kid got to bring home the “Kindergarten alien” for the weekend, and we are having fun taking him places:

This past week I made two recipes from cookbooks I am re-reading, and they both turned out great. I think I’ll make crepes more often! We also loved the slow cooker meatballs, and I am putting another recipe from the The 150 Healthiest Slow Cooker Recipes on Earth cookbook to the test this week.

Meal 1: Low-sugar BBQ pulled chicken thighs – from The 150 Healthiest Slow Cooker Recipes on Earth cookbook; carrot, cucumber, & celery sticks with avocado cream.
Meal 2: Salmon with lemon juice & dill; oven-roasted asparagus.
Meal 3: Easy pizza made with Trader Joe’s pizza dough, topped with sautéed onions and mushrooms and brie cheese; arugula salad with avocado dressing.
Meal 4: Carrot soup with black rice.
Meal 5: Leftovers.

Questions: What’s the highlight of your weekend? What’s on your menu this week? Do you keep track of how much you walk or run? If so, how?
Be well,
