I lost 0.2# at TOPS last night. I decided to order a Polar Heart Rate Monitor FT4 and used it for an at home walking workout. I burned 310 on the FT4 and Alta 242 so going to do a comparison tomorrow with my lifting workout. I might have burned more but didn't change my weight on my FT4 watch will do that tomorrow before I put it in the bag.

Been a couple of days since I've been here. I gained 1.6# again this week so going to watch extra good this week. Got my new workouts this morning before I left for MAC so I went ahead and put the Chest/Shoulders/Triceps workout into a template that a little bit ago finished the rest of them. Taking tomorrow off since I work a mid shift and don't like going to the gym after 5PM when the little girls are there for their cheer practice/classes. Going to test out the activity mode on my Fit Bit One after it charges up to see if the calories burned are as accurate as using the Alta and writing down the calories burned before and the calories burned after then subtracting the totals. I'm curious of which is more accurate for calories burned. So far I've drank 56oz and am drinking another 28oz and have 64oz total left to drink.

Went back and checked this week my sodium was under 2300MG and my calories were over 1500 all week so hopefully I should be OK for weigh in. So far I've drank 28oz of water and am drinking another 28oz of Amino Acids. I've got 64oz of water  left to drink today so will get that done before bedtime tonight.  I've already taken my measurements and have my check in e-mail started in a word document then after dinner and before church I'll get my food log completed and put it in the e-mail so I can copy that over to an e-mail and just sent my payment now so I don't forget in the morning to do so. A little worried about weigh in cause I ate pizza for dinner yesterday and will have another slice today but as long as I take my water pill and drink all of my water I should be OK. Will watch both sodium and snacking tomorrow and should hopefully be OK for weigh in on Monday morning and Monday evening for TOPS.

It's been over a week and so much has happened. Got back from SRD and weighed in with a 1.6# gain maybe I shouldn't have eaten as many Veggie Straws as I did. Been working for a loss this week but might not get to weigh in all depending if Janet could figure out how to change the schedule to allow me to work day shift on Monday and be off before 5PM. Will find out either tonight or tomorrow then will call Sharon tomorrow afternoon if I have to miss weigh in. I hate to miss a weigh in but if I have to then I have to.  Planning on getting back in the habit of posting daily or every couple of days.

Almost all packed except for my makeup bag and lippy which won't get put in my bag until after I get home from my Back/Biceps workout. Think instead of messing with taking my workout bag in the AM I'll text and order a shake to be brought to the gym by 9:45 but no later than 10:30 or so that way I can drink it on the way home and consider it lunch not sure what flavor I'll order yet but thinking Chocolate Mint or Reece's Cheesecake. Put my medicines in a pill box to take in the morning and put a scoop of tea into the measuring spoon so I could go ahead and put my medicines and tea into my bag.  Forgot until I got home to log my minutes into the Walk Kansas site but did it when I got home. Took pictures with snap chat at the beauty shop but forgot to create a story so it didn't work. Will try again tomorrow after I fix my hair and get ready to go.

Got in a great workout this morning and have a plan for the rest of the week. Tomorrow is Legs/Abs and Thursday is Back/Biceps then will decide on Friday what I'm going to do once I see what kind of equipment there is in the hotel workout room. Might as well go ahead and get my minutes typed up this afternoon then I don't have to worry about it at a later date. Thursday morning after I put my scoop of tea in my cup I'll put the bottle in my bag and after I take my meds they will go in my suitcase too. After I use my lip color then they too will go in the suitcase. Bought a new Bubba capri bottle this morning since not sure what I'd left in the other one but it's all smelly. I've logged in to My Fitness Pal for 466 days and I'll continue to use it even though the food database on the fitbit site is better now.

I started using Snap Chat today after having the app on my phone for a while. I'll see if Sharon and Rosie mind if I have my phone in the weight room to record my weigh in for a snap chat story. I'll use it when we are in Topeka. Can't wait to actually chat with some friends on Snap Chat. I know that Mica and Christian are on there but hope to chat with one of them to get the hang of it truly. Home scale was down this morning so think I'm going to be OK for tonight's weigh in.

Today is day 6 of no sweets or snacks. Home scale was back down this morning so think I should be OK for tomorrow morning's weigh in and tomorrow evening's. Will try and nail down a time of when we are leaving on Thursday for SRD in Topeka. I've got everything ready and will decide if I'm going to do a 2 hour workout on Wed afternoon or get in a workout on Thursday morning after I find out what time we are leaving. Looking forward to sending Christian an e-mail with my weigh in's that I've lost the 0.6# that I gained last Monday night.

Been a couple of days but have been busy and had early mornings. I'm on vacation for the week and will get in a few workouts. Home scale was up a little today but my sodium was out of range a couple days this week just hope for a loss tomorrow morning and on Monday for weigh in's. I'm on day 5 of no sweets or snacking even though I did have a few pretzels as I was coming down with a slight headache and needed to eat something. I've got the e-mail ready to send to Christian in the morning. Bought a new mouse but went back to the old one after having problems with my internet browser which went away when I switched back to my Logitech mouse.
