I wanted to hit the road early so I prepared a quick breakfast of 1/2 cup Fage 2% yogurt, 1/4 cup of fresh blueberries and 1/2 English muffin with about a teaspoon of butter.
I was traveling again so, again, no snack.
I had a small cup of beef stew for lunch. Sorry, no pic!
I had lunch early so I was getting famished about 2:00. I finally bought a small bag of white cheddar popcorn about 150 calories worth.
Another meal out and it's more difficult to control calories. We split a Chateaubriand with broccolini, carrots and mashed potatoes. Sadly there was a lot of leftovers. What we ate was delicious.
This is supposed to serve 2 people but I think it was plenty for 4.
I had no space for dessert but I did have two bites of this creme brulee.
I got my full 10k steps in for the day. I didn't eat a lot but I'm sure the calorie content was higher than I would like. I look forward to some lighter meals tomorrow. I'll let you know how that goes.
FitBit - My fitbit is a fitness tracker, heart rate monitor, and (most of the time) my activity motivator. I've owned a Fitbit since the product first arrived on the market back in 2009. I can set goals for weight, steps, workouts and more then track my progress. Eventually I can share that data with the Nutrisystem NuMi app but currently the app is not functioning. It will be very helpful when it all synchs together. I've used various versions of the Fitbit and I'm currently using the Charge HR model. I'm very progress oriented so I really like the graphs and details they provide. Everything synchs up with my iPhone which is very convenient. The Fitbit can be purchased directly from the company or at many online retailers. If you're on a budget you can watch Groupon for specials on refurbished units which offer a good savings.
Aria Scale - My Aria scale tracks my weight and body fat percentage. I'm not 100% those percentages are accurate but I can see the trend which really is all important to me. Once I weigh it is connected to my Wifi and reports back to my FitBit dashboard. Eventually it too is supposed to synch with the NuMi data but that remains to be seen. I purchased mine directly from FitBit buy you can buy them at Walmart or Amazon.
